If you play for pure fun and winning as much as possible isn't part of that fun knock yourself out.


I wish I had 1200 Bonus pool @ 2000 score.
lol, I watched his game a while back. My point was that he was able to make it into the GSL playing random, so, it means something. Obviously, he didn't win, but, that wasn't the point. Yes, I know, if you go to the GSL, you obviously want to win, but, not everything always goes in your favour and losses must be accepted

@ bolded. Winning is always part of it, but, I also try to enjoy my matches. Even when I'm losing as P or T, I'm experimeting around with the race trying to see what I can come up with and enjoying the game. I've tried thor drops, do banshee harass, almost tried hellion harass(attacked before I could move to his base). I have yet to use ravens, more vikings, bcs, mass thors, etc.... Of course, winning those games as well is great.

Problem is winning as Z is good and all and was moving me up the ladder(around 700 points now), it's becoming less satisfying now because MM is taken out by slings+blings and I've played enough T games that I've seen a lot of different strats. P is a bit harder because stalkers still do well against roaches and immortals are crazy good against them as well, but, that's why I got mutas, etc.... Point is winning is great and all as Z, but, there doesn't seem to a challenge and there are only 3 possible matches. On the other hand, going random will always spice things up since there are 9 different matches Also, don't forget what you mentioned, if I get good at TvsT, it says something about me

Anyways, I'm still experiementing around with P and T and have a better idea than when I started. I think I got some of my start as a T mapped out, P isn't too bad either. Just gotta start deciding strat that I'm planning to use with each race before starting the match because I usually change techs within a game with T or P and obviously I'll lose resources to that

I've got like 1000+ bonus points, will play like a madman and try to get about 100 points a day from now until 2000 or something.
lol, good point, forgot about that one, would be nice to get some of those P portraits, lol. You also have >1000? I was under the impression that I was the only one with such high bonus points

I think it's just overclock.net for the name. If you mean about accessing it, you need to go to the ptr(open starcraft2test.exe or whatever its called, same directory as starcraft2.exe) and there is a channel button near the time so add channel -> overclock.net

2000 will be quite easy for you IMO ( rhed ). You have enough points / bonus pool to just play a ton and do it.



Just noticed in the PTR that if you alt tab a message is sent to you that SCII flashes in your task bar.

Interesting, I dislike how they removed the ability to hold down the hotkey and be able to make units as in press s to select larvae and hold z for zerglings. Now you can have to keep on pressing z for every larvae you have, just more annoying is all

lol, maybe I should've rephrased it better. There isn't many challenges in my Silver league, so, learning the other races now is the perfect time, because, let's be honest, if I try to learn T or P if I'm in Plat or higher, I'll likely get stomped and be depromoted to Gold/Silver. Of course, this considers that I make it to Plat in the first place

BTW, do you still play SC2? Haven't seen you on in ages, we should get a game going sometime

I am concentrating on WOW for now since Cata comes out in 12 hours.

I play team games every now and then with Guildies, but they aren't that great =[

But once Cata settles down, I'll be back full force! I might need DoomDash to kick my ass a few times for me to wipe the rust off.
