The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[Starcraft 2] THIS THREAD IS DEAD! POST IN THE NEW ONE!

    But he had been placed in a previous season hadn't he? I want to say that effects what leagues you go up against. For new accounts usually plat is the highest you get, no?

    I'm not sure that counted, because that was in season 1 and he had to do all 5 placements.

  • PantsBPantsB Registered User regular
    It all depends on who you play in your placement matches. You can win them all and be placed in Plat

    If you look at his history, he lost two 1v1s recently. But since he can't be promoted with the lockdown he's probably already facing high masters.

    Wow, I didn't realize we had masters-level folks in PA. That's pretty awesome.

    I need to be better at this game.

    But it's possible he won all five and still placed into plat, or maybe he had to quit a game prematurely because he had to do an MLG match.

    Lmao, nice league Meeks.

    Sick interview. He mentions that back a while he had also scouted HuK and Select to join ROOT.

    So that means the players assembled to join ROOT by CatZ and drewbie at some point included ...

    Sheth
    Kiwi
    Slush
    Destiny (Great publicity)
    qxc
    HuK
    Select
    Minigun
    Major
    ddoro (Might qualify this MLG)

    He also tried to get Stephano for complexity.

    Really wish ROOT got a major sponsor before they had to be assimilated. Or even further back before all their players started to get vultured by major teams (qxc, Sheth). For a team assembled by players the success they had is a pretty big feat. Considering all the corporate affairs poking their nose in now it was very refreshing to see the equivalent of Mom & Pop Starcraft.

    The management team they built also got taken by IGN and was responsible for a good part of IPL.

    We've got like 7 Masters level players at this point, and another third of us are in Diamond.

    I am in Silver league, which basically means that I have the equivalent skill, were the average forumers not godlike adonii, of a retard banging his head against a brick wall.

    Which reminds me of a ladder game I played against this Terran the othe

    I have a grandmaster friend who I beat because I called him at the start of the game right as I started a cannon rush, by the time he was done scurrying for his phone it was too late

    This is a legitimate strategy and I recommend it

    Just watched Idra vs Boxer.

    No idea why Boxer would try to play two macro games with anyone, let alone Idra.

  • HonkHonk Registered User, __BANNED USERS regular
    In the original season, after release, I won 4/5 placement games and placed in gold league. I think it depends a bunch on who you get to play. :)

    I'm not a fan of mirror matches, but Terran is easily the one I find most boring.

    Pro level TvT is actually like the most macro-heavy, positioning-heavy, varied matchup in the entire game. It does tend to be very slow and methodical though.

    I think other, non vT matchups might develop a lot more if they were actually played with the frequency TvT is.

    the developing doesn't come from tournament games being played, it comes from practise games, and nothing says they aren't practising generically once they get knocked out of GSL.

    Although, to be fair, players would, I imagine, focus their practise around upcoming matches and right now most players are either facing a Terran, or are a Terran, or both.

    My point exactly. The chance of facing a Terran in high level (Korean, admittedly) play is seriously ballooning. Unless you're in the Up and Down matches.
