Don't like the truth?

Lol, just messing with you. I've actually been having a harder time with toss then zerg lately.

By the way, the TL Power Rankings for Summer Arena just got posted. It's interesting Taeja is #1 after an early exit from IEM and TSL4, even though he has been wrecking lately. Dunno if I'd have MKP at #2 either.

In BW, you're D,C,B,A with -/+ between them. And that's what you are, and that's what you say. I'm an A+ Zerg, I'm a D- Terran, I'm a C- Protoss, etc. You are what you are, without trying to be more than it says. If I'm a C+ Zerg, I'll look and advertise in chat that I'm C+ looking to play C-/B+ players on map-Z. And you'd definitely get some good even games.
While I agree it's different in SC2, cause the ladder system is **** and made to encourage casuals/everybody, it's just something I've never been able to get over.
Like why is MMR hidden? The difference between someone who's "Rank 1" Masters in their division (because of useless points) and someone with an actual high MMR is sooooo astronomical.
I've been "Rank#1" in my Masters division and it didn't mean anything other than I had a lot of points. But then I play some guy who's "Rank#55" Masters in a Custom-Game, and he beats me sooooo easily. Come to find his hidden-MMR is amongst the upper-tier of players, playing against pros.
How am I suppose to find other similar Masters players around my level if the MMR is hidden, am I suppose to ladder all day?? Ladder doesn't fix everything. But it's the only way to face players your level.
What if I need to do custom games against a specific race to practice a specific build? The closest thing I can do is look if he has a Masters-Icon, and PRAY his MMR is similar to mine. So then it's 1/3 (33.33%) chance of getting good practice. Either he's super low-MMR and I win easily or he's super high-mmr and I lose easily. Or 33.33% he's around the same and it's really good practice. Even though we're both "Masters"
Basically, Rank and Points mean nothing. The only thing that matters is MMR (which we can't see). I'd rather play a "Rank#90" Masters with similar/higher MMR, than play some "Rank#1" Masters whose MMR is so low, it's as if he's Diamond.
Basically, I just need MMR to be shown, so I know what I'm getting into when I play custom-games because the disparity within a SINGLE league is TOO high.

TomsHardware did a test of sC2 that basically says 2 cores running as fast as possible is what SC2 likes

Meh. Tested in beta. Also no details on what map/how many units/what spells/how many actions. Doesn't sound like a solid test.

Also, dt's are cool! smile.gif
