[Official] Starcraft 2 Strategy & Discussion Thread - Page 2311

post #23101 of 25319
I'd really love to get back into competitive playing, especially for ones, but I've gotten so slow and uncoordinated.

Even in in 3s or 4s under the pressure of an early cheese I begin to crack and don't have much of a solid build to work for.

Though I think this is something beyond even StarCraft, as tasks I could normally accomplish with ease have become somewhat of a mental struggle. Perhaps school and work have just worn me down to just above the threshold of losing my mind.

In the original StarCraft, I was amazing with Zerg; they're still my best race in SC2, but I'm not nearly as formidable as I once was.

I've been doing a lot of AI Matchmaking against Elite, and unranked 3s as Random to broaden my perspective of the units of other races. Know your enemy, as they say, but I've found these "studies" to be less beneficial than I had expected.

What server are you playing on? SEA was like that for me when I was in Silver. I've moved to NA and it is much more consistent. Match making seems to work a lot better the more people there are to diversify the pool.

the only thing good you will get by practicing vs the Computer is better mechanics nothings else
you just need get a friend and practice vs him all they long and at the end of the month you will be better.

and then those cheese play wont affect that much your mentallity.

Unfortunately, all of my friends have transferred exclusively to League of Legends, and refuse to play anything else. It's become rather annoying.

I'm stuck with trying to make new friends, which I can admit is not my forte.

The funny thing is, they claim they're not addicted, but when I tell them to take a break, they can't. But they tell me they can quit if they choose to rolleyes.gif

Every conversation is now full of LOL memes and all that junk. I'm losing my mind.

LOL. They claim SC2 isn't fun because you can't play it casually and yet in order to play LOL properly, you need to have a reasonable understanding of a hundred character's abilities and a thousand items/upgrades.

More like "I play LOL because I suck at games and need to hide behind a team so I can blame everyone but myself". :/

The funny thing is, they play ranked and complain about it some much. I've told them they need to become career players with the attitudes they're having.

You know what annoys me even more about lol? There are actually a lot of talented RTS gamers wasting their attention on it when they could potentially be gracing the SC2 ESL scene and furthering e-sports. My brother, for example, maintained top 5 in the world at Empire Earth for years and is rather gifted at complex RTS games. Now he just carries 4 other players in lol. Such a waste.

I would play SC2 more than League if i could find people that are willing to teach me the ropes, strats and do it in a nice way. I play League of legends and im not a high ranking player.
but i have been playing ti since it came out, and i played DOTA before that, and HoN so it was an easy transfer. I never played Starcraft 1 and only got SC2 about 3 months ago. there is no need to hate on any of the games, people change, and want to play what they choose. I enjoy league because there are multiple modes. Casual and hardcore ranked grinding. i know SC@ has the same thing. BUt i prefer to play with friends when it comes to SC2, but i have none. Literally NONE. So i sit here and rank in league and listen to Vocaloid hahahaha

Seriously tho SC@ is a blast i enjoyed the campaign, but i cant get strats down nor can i play fast enough.
