    End of an era. But, sounds like his new position will be pretty fun/cool.

    Holy shit. I'm pretty sure he is the longest tenured continually-active member of a competitive team in all of eSports.

    last night's GSL group was insanity

    Parting Maru Byun Stats

    a group straight out of 2017 or even 2012

    every single match and game was well worth a watch, but Maru vs Parting game 2 ESPECIALLY.

    decided to do my placement matches for the new season last night

    3-0 later, I played a Diamond player who spent 6 minutes of a 16 minute match supply blocked and floated over 3k minerals at 130 supply.

    I would have expected skill levels to be higher on average since 2013, 2014 when I last played, not lower.

    This is a great series by Harstem, "Is It Imba Or Do I Suck" where he takes replays by people who are angry about imba things in another race and Harstem explains why it's not imba and they suck

    Harstem is great. Dude is hilarious and also genuinely helpful and informative.

    Blizzard officially announces that Starcraft II is ending "active development." Sounds like no more paid content and just maintenance and occasional balance patches going forward.

  • CauldCauld Registered User regular
    Yeah, i'm pretty bummed out about it. I know that the current competitive setup is locked in for a couple more years, but sad that a lot of other blizzard sponsored stuff won't be happening.

  • MMMigMMMig Registered User regular
    Huh, I saw Artosis post a video about it but didn't realize it was a full blizz stop.

    They haven't really been doing much aside from the battle chest things for ranked play anyway. Maybe theyll work on something else worthwhile, but blizzard hasnt really been firing on all (any) cylinders lately.

    I don't actually play the game at all, but weren't co-op commanders pretty popular?

  • BloodySlothBloodySloth Registered User regular
    My understanding is co-op is really popular (and it's also a bunch of fun) but I imagine there are diminishing returns regarding getting people to buy new ones as they come out. The mode is also a titch low on maps and Blizzard is somehow really bad at promoting it (and SC2 in general) outside of to people who already play the game.

  • DhalphirDhalphir don't you open that trapdoor you're a fool if you dareRegistered User regular
    yeah they needed to spend some time adding new missions/maps and less time with commanders

    there's more commanders now than there are missions

    Apparently, I wrote this on my Facebook page 10 years ago today:

    “My TvP has improved significantly since adopting the 1/1/2 Hellion to Banshee build. Now I need some good builds for TvZ and TvT. Bonus points if you understood anything I just typed.”

    Those were the days. :)

    somewhere along the lines StarCraft 2 switched from being a contemporary game to being an old game and I don't really know exactly when it happened

  • MMMigMMMig Registered User regular
    Happened exactly when you yourself turned old.

    Old man...

    It happened when people could make money playing LoL instead. Why struggle trying to control 100 units at 300 apm when you could control 1 at 60 apm? Then battle royale games came out and we're somehow in the worst timeline.

    I was just wondering a couple weeks ago what Ryan was up to these days, very nice.

    It's pretty neat, but I feel like a lot of fine-but-not-earth-shattering things have come out of dev teams touted as having been assembled with ex-Blizzard star developers. There's also just something sort of inherently shifty to me about a company hyping up the announcement of themselves even existing. It's very "silicon valley start-up with no product." I dunno.

    I don't want to be a downer, either; I am really curious about whatever rts they'll end up actually announcing, and this seems about as close as it gets to my real dream of StarCraft changing hands away from modern Blizzard and to a dedicated developer less prone to corporate interference.

    Anyway, I'm hoping for the best and expecting disappointment.

    I don't think this was mentioned here but Morheim has also started his own studio very recently.

    I was hoping Blizzard would add one more set of skins to each race before they stopped supporting the game, so I could map them to the five Magic: The Gathering colors. :(

    yo the GSL code S finals that aired last night was absolutely lit

    spoilers just because the thumbnail shows who's in the finals in case you've been watching and are behind:

    At one point Tasteless goes "each game in this series is the best game I've ever seen."

    ESL has 10k viewers right now.

    I also see other streamers with relatively high numbers.

    Hell, Artosis gets 1k+ and he's only on bw.


    Also found an sc2 female toss streamer that only cheeses, master. Let's just say... oh my.

    Just beat Starcraft 1 Episode 1 for the first time. Definitely got some old jank to it, but still had fun. Last mission was a bit of a difficulty spike. After a couple failed attempts, I pulled up the controls, found out how to make unit groups, and was able to beat it in an attempt or two.
    It's a bit weird, those unit groupings feel more or less necessary to be able to effectively control the sort of large, combined arms army you need to win that mission, but I don't think the game ever tutorializes you on it. Only reason I thought to check the controls and thus found out about them was some vague recollection that people good at Starcraft manage units via hotkeys, somehow.

    the tutorial teaches you. the campaign itself assumes completion of the tutorial or prior experience, one of the two.

    You sure? I just double checked it, and I didn't see that. Maybe I just went on autopilot and missed it.

    It has been ten years I'm entirely possibly mistaken. Quite an omission if so.
