Got a clue how to fix this offline? smile.gif

Have you tried different maps? When I launch a custom game I swear it always does the streaming thing at the top, which makes me think its using the internet.

About five minutes later he just rage quit after I trashed his third twice. biggrin.gif

That's pretty funny. People who talk trash are usually the bad ones. That's why my two favorite players right now are WhiteRa and Polt, very humble cool guys that happen to be extremely good as well.

This is bar none the most satisfying scenario while playing multiplayer. D-bag thinks he has you beat, talks trash, you proceed to comeback and stomp him. biggrin.gif

Thanks!! A big up to filtersc's tutorials on YouTube - they are the main reason I've been able to win any games at all. Today I figured that my 50SCVs at 10mins just wasn't happening, and that I should focus on fixing that, and that alone until I could do it most games. That's what made the difference today. smile.gif

What do you mean? You were trying to have 50, scvs by the ten minute mark? As a terrain you don't really have to worry about that, make sure to descent your expansion and make sure to always queue up an scv every 17 seconds :-D. At least that's how I roll

Only 3 of us in the OCN group online. Need moar people. I'm getting bored playing against AI.

/edit Well there it is, finally got some time to play. Harder computers are incredibly easy, and very hard computer I couldnt beat two games in a row.

I'm following filtersc's tutorials on YouTube. With a 1 rax FE, you're supposed to have 50 SCVs out by ten minutes. I'm struggling a little with this, and the best I've done so far is 48, more commonly around the 44 mark. Watching replays, the main cause of my failure is usually me letting myself get supply blocked, but every now and then there are a couple of seconds where I fail to queue up an SCV.

I guess that's pretty much the same thing as your approach. smile.gif
