Sometimes I miss the feeling of a siege tank bombing my enemies from range 13, and I miss stutter stepping my marines.

Yea well to be honest I don't miss anything about SC2. It got too boring since creative play isn't very viable and each matchup really only has one or two viable play styles.

Creative play is totally viable in custom matches or bronze league, or once you get good and know what makes up a good strategy.

Not so much when you are in masters, but to a certain extent I think you can be creative.

Once you get a good understanding of the game and why certain strategies work, you can start coming up with new ones. See: Spanishiwa's no-gas-until-40-supply, I believe Destiny's ling/infestor rush vs FFE toss, etc.

Play random and do weird cheese/builds. Pretty fun imo

An example for a terran in 4 player map verses Protoss or Terran

1. Block ur ramp with 2 supply+rax
2. scout with TWO scvs
3. 1 scv scouts the opponent, the other scv expands on the opposite starting position
4.In ur expansion, build production and supply
5. When opponent scouts/scans u, pull all ur scvs and pretend to all in.
6. Fake scv-allin, while u transfer all ur scvs to the OTHER base which has all the production
7.Lift ur CC and move to the NATURAL of ur expo
8.The opponent will expect a cheese/all in and get defenses up. After a bit, if he believes u stopped all-ining because u got scouted, he'll try to counter and attack.
9. When u scout the opponent's forces moving forward, use the units in ur EXPO and base trade.
10. Opponent destroys the wall, but sees nothing and u destroy the opponent's base.

GG.

I've been doing all sorts of weird stuff in the ladder as random. Still masters
huh?

That actually does sound like fun!

Got a replay of you doing that?
