nada and moon were former members of wemade fox, a starcraft/wc3/cs korean gaming team. i know nada had a salary, not sure about moon. in essence, it was (and now, playing sc2, is) his job. he signed my shirt once tongue.gif

games like supreme commander erase the need to actually practise and become fast. its a casual's game.
NO you are so terribly wrong I don't know where to start. Starcraft II is strategy + hugely unnecesary macroing. Supreme Commander 2 has taken out all the pointless mouse+keyboard actions so that all you do is concentrate on the strategy. This is what a 2010 game requires and is. Starcraft 1 was good in the day - not any more. Just because you can press a keyboard/mouse faster doesn't mean anything about strategy. Play Supreme Commander 2 at an elite level - and then play starcraft 2 at any decent level, and you will clearly see which one makes more sense.

Stop effin arguing.

Yea sure, Supreme Commander and Starcraft 1/2 are both real-time strategies (so is LoL/DotA/HoN/Bloodline Champions), but they are completely different games, with different play styles. I'm sorry but if you compare those two, you're just being a fanboy

unnecessary macroing? you think economic management and production management is 'unnecessary macroing?' in a strategy game? come on, admit it, you're just lazy. starcraft's stategy is much, much more developed and fleshed compared to some upstart game. people have been playing this game professionally FOR YEARS. people get paid to solely analyse strategies and tactics in this game, and you are telling me about the 'elite' level of supreme commander? rofl

http://wiki.teamliquid.net/starcraft/Main_Page a brief introduction

starcraft is a complete game. to play it well, you need to be fast and you need to be smart. thats the bottom line, thats why its so competitive, thats why people that play one handed hate it

He doesn't play starcraft. Don't even bother to argue with him

i like to argue, as long as people present compelling arguments
post #17 of 46
I am well aware of Starcraft Gameplay having played it myself for several hours (back in the day). But what I am arguing is - instead of having to individually select each 'worker' to get resources - and to select each time you want to build a unit - why not use a more advanced and modern interface, like Supreme Commander 2 ~ where you still need to manage economy/units, but it takes out alot of unecessary actions. You can put the unit production on repeat for example. Or you can select a build order for several buildings, and not have to do every single on individually (this is still very much management). SC2 vs SupCom2 ~ SupCom2 just takes out all the little unecessary actions + animations look much better - like an actual battle rather than on person shooting laser at another

Yeah it is a good idea to buy it!
The single player campaign is very fun, takes you sticked to the PC until you finish it. But prepare yourself to be beaten up in the multiplayer!
A lot of players take this game very seriously, and by consequence you will have an hard time to reach the top.

Anyway, def worth it!

having speed and hand dexterity requirements in a game is not a detriment at all. this is where greatness comes from, inhuman micro and movement (stuff people like to watch.) strategy alone isnt interesting to watch.

i dont like the idea of dumbing down a game like that. since economy and macro are such pivotal points of games, i think its fair that players should be able to dictate it, rather than everyone being equal. fact is, modern players can do all the 'tedious' things like mineral mining and unit production as well as display sick micro in battles. starcraft has remained competitive because people have the room to excel, in all aspects of the game

I'm not a fan of either SC or Supreme commander and I dislike strategy games in general but this guy says he's played it for "several hours"



You can hardly judge such a competitive game with only a few hours of playing it.

Fanboyism at its best.
