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.

I don't mind people changing what they want to play, but they've literally let the game consume them. They spend every waking minute talking about it or trying to play it.

I'd say the same thing for people who don't give StarCraft, or any game for that matter, a break.

well after playing WOL for almost 2 years and reaching master level with protoss... i left SC2 for BF3>>BF4 and now i play BF4/Starcraft BW as terran being Protoss before SC2 come out.

i enjoy a lot BF4 and when some one tells me to play SC2 wiht them i dont find it enjoyable anymore like i do again on BW.
and the good thing is i keep watching SC2 news, torunaments and follow pro league too biggrin.gif but i dont play it that much anymore, maybe waiting for LOV to attract me again....

the other day i wanted to play DOTA2 / LOL but i find it really hard for me to get away from BF4 since i love the game.
its really hard to leave what you like so somehow i understand why some one wont like to play sc2 anymore playing lol or any other games

it all comes down to your preference and passion.

Ya I think it's important to not let one thing consume all your time and energy. I like to mix SC2 up with a variety of games such as single player adventure RPG and shooters like CS:GO, BF4. SC2 is just my favourite RTS. I think it's hard to focus on multiple RTS games because they require so much memorising of build orders and training of mechanics.

My comment in relation to my brother is, in part, a personal grievance because I just wish he'd play SC2 so we can be on the same level when discussing it, but also because he used to be elite in the world of e-sports and now he's settling for mid leagues in a team based game. I think all brothers want to see each other achieving the best they are capable of!

It's like when I was doing power-lifting. He has a much larger frame than me and inherited more of our old man's genetics than I did (he was one of the best wrestlers in our country and an Olympic weight lifter). I tried to get him to lift too because I knew he had way more potential than me, but the lazy bastard couldn't be bothered. There's a lesson to be learnt about not pushing your own priorities on others, I guess! I ended up doing pretty well for myself, but far from elite, like he could've. Oh well.

As for helping noobs at sc2. I'm only really Plat level myself, but I would be happy to teach the basics that got me where I am - assuming you're Zerg. I think a lot of people on SC2 are too "win" oriented and become way too nasty about laddering. There needs to be a better community spirit or the game will die to natural attritian.

I used to play supreme commander 2 and company of heroes as change ups, but like you said I didn't have time to be good at them all. I would just use the others as a break.

I will play bf3 and gt5 on my ps3 now that I don't pc game anymore. I use a mouse and keyboard on bf3. smile.gif

His handle was ras, rascat, rasputin etc He was a bit of a Catz of EE. Always pioneering strats and doing things that seemed foolish and winning. He persisted with EE well after the tournaments died and the sponsors moved elsewhere and built himself quite a reputation on the scene, so you might have heard of him. He didn't make it to Europe in that huge world championship 100k tournament because he thought he wasn't allowed to qualify (under 18), but he consistently beat the guy who came third (also from Australia) ViE_Be, as we were all mates and they practiced at home together etc. Be said himself that he reckons ras would've won that championship due to his unpredictable playstyle, as his mechanics were equal.

As a player who at their peak was beating Korean masters (was dia league) I quit playing sc2 mainly because I was tired of the stale meta. I came back hoping the staleness would have gotten better but it hasn't and Im convinced its due to poor design. not to be confused with balance, sc2 is mostly balanced.

Then there's the issue of Blizzard's attitude towards sc2 which is a bigger lesson in how not to market a game than ME3 was.

I mean if you base your game on being a esport and appealing to the elite players then the elite players leave you're left with a product that alienates the average player, which is all the game has now. The average joe.

I just hope LotV learns from WoL's balance mistakes (remember the Infestor BL? IMBA IMBA IMBA IMBA) and HotS's design mistakes.

I thought wots was better, the game was still being figured out and games were more intense.

HOTS has longer games that are more drawn out and boring.
