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!

    one time

    one time I fell prey to the drone rush/buildbaseinsidemyhometurf trick :(

    but never again

    Oh?

    Tell me about it.

    So I can uh... defend against it.

    yeah... defend against...

    when at the very beginning of the game you send one of your workers to the enemy's base and start building your base in the remote corner of theirs, out of line of sight. I can't see it working on anyone twice though. Also don't know if it would work with zerg. They seem to be able to get fast expansions out, so. maybe.

    It's not a question of being able to, it's a question of having to.

    And it's a thing I personally need to work on.

    Mutas and those suicidey guys are good times.

    roach den at 18. While I have my queen coming. Then it's 40 seconds to 10+ roaches comin atcha

    edit: don't bother with zerglings.

    Ohoho! Very clever indeed.

    They're gonna bury you, they're gonna finish. They're gonna stand 'em up six by six by six.

    Not a good idea. If you play someone like me, I'll rush you with quick marines, zealots or lings and it's gg. People that tech straight to the 1.5 units generally lose to me.

    Roaches are fast though. Unless you're deliberately going for a rush build I'll have the first wave out by the time you get there. At least, that's been my experience with people sending t1 units at me.

    I don't know what you consider budget, but when I was putting together my newish rig, the Radeon 4850 HD was the card of choice, and it's served me very well. Still plays modern games at max settings.

    Before your warren is up, I'll have units in your base.

    Not only that, but with DX11 support they're good to go for the long term.

    Your 4800 series doesn't support DirectX11.

    I don't know why you bought a 4800 series card, Tarr.

    Yeah, it doesn't strike me as a terrible realization, but this is still pretty surprising to me. I had no idea that DX11 would need such relatively newer cards to operate fully. Usually I'm more aware of what I'm locking myself out of when I buy computer bits.

    Especially since I can see that Dxdiag is running Dx11. I guess just not at full capacity.

    Rush and a half, ain't it? Also, I'm pretty sure the next actual book in the series (I think Side Jobs is a short story compilation) hasn't been announced yet, so the wait may be longer than a year.

    Looks like it is called Ghost Stories, no cover yet but it has a place on the novels page. It could be another short stories collection but I don't think so.
