    Do turrets still last a ridiculous long time like 2 minutes?

    Defense drone was also bs. Sooo tough for stalkers or mutas to do much. I think they got nerfed some after a while. The only way zerg could hope to survive was hoping for a godly fungal chain on a group of them.

    no turrets were buffed hugely in DPS and reduced to like 10 seconds in LotV, but I think now they are less DPS but more like 20 seconds uptime.

    I, too, deflected some cheese

    It was a 2-base sentry-adept all-in

    But the build seemed pretty sloppy, and I saw the little army leave the base, and I think he forgot to even bring a probe...

    It's weird - stop cannon rush and opponent then bails. Like, what? I stop a pylon and pop a probe and that's it?

    Penny Arcade Curvy Star League 2017!

    June 17th @ 8pm EST (the tournament is listed in my timezone, AWST)

    Format, Round Robin, best of 3 unless we get like, fifty signups because then it will be too many games.

    At start of each match take the entire ladder map pool. Opponents alternate map vetoes, coinflip determines first veto.

    Aside from that the whole thing is super simple, we're doing round robin so that everybody gets to play the same number of games and receive the same amount of fun regardless of league or recent experience playing.

    We'll use the Penny Arcade ingame chat channel to organise things.

    @Variable @Yilias @3clipse @Kambing @MMMig @kedinik @WingedWeasel @SorC @Sceptre @tugga @theSquid @Keamien

    and anyone else who you guys know is still around on the Internet even if they haven't played since Wings of Liberty, who cares, neither have the rest of us!

    Oh snap this is coming up, Saturday!

    I see 8 people signed up.

    Lots of the "Original Gangsters" group!
    (AKA old-geezers by now)


    ed: Now that I think about it, round robin BO3 with 8 players starting at 8 PM means it'll be a long night.
    It's BO1! Thanks for the correction. That means we'll be seenig the ULTIMATE of cheese.

    So, in a totally innocent query about how my old pals are doing, and not an attempt at coming up with build and psychological counters to my opponents, what race will y'all be playing? (note anyone playing random gets a big boooooooooo)

    @Dhalphir Toss?
    @PantsB Brotoss?
    @Vari Terran?
    @kedinik Zerg master race?
    @SorC Australian brotoss? (they have a funny accent)

    Following up on my comment about 'real pros' I just played my 5 ranking matches to get my intial ranking... Platnium 3 bitches~!

    >.>
    <.<

    Despite getting my ass KICKED in all three games. 2 of them were over in less than ten minutes, the third went 18, after I fought off a nasty attack on my base, and sent all my units and reinforcements to attack him - not realizing that he had twice my army supply, had only spent half of it on the attack, and rebuilt it up to full by the time my tattered forces made it there. :lol:

    'but wait,' you say, 'you're supposed to play 5 games, aren't you?'

    Yup. Two of my opponents quit as soon as the match started, which is why I'm now PLATINUM.

    Which is funny, because I was looking at the animation and going 'wow, silver sure is shiny these days! At least I'm not bronze! Wait... WHAT?!!?'

    Haha that's hilarious.

    So do you just never ladder again at this point?


    I've never gotten over ladder anxiety (in this or any game, heck I'm even afraid of taking an IQ test) so that's prob what I'd do. -_-'

    Oh man, you want to be intimated? When I did the ranking battles against the AI, I had about 80 APM.

    That tier 3 platnium I 'earned' due to the 2 drop outs? _35_ APM. :rotate: I was so nervous fighting against human opponents that I didn't know, I completely froze up on keeping my brain moving. And you can see it, watching the micro in the replays. Man, were those engagements awful. Although in the one game 'holy crap, massed siege tanks ate my bio ball! Just luck that I had some Liberators on the way, and ran them into the flank of the sieged up tanks.'

    Too bad I still lost that one.

    I feel oddly impatient considering if this thing was any earlier I wouldn't be able to play.

    I can't tear myself away from Grim Dawn to 'practice' and it seems like some of you have started laddering so my default advantage is wasting away. well, one of them... I'm still Terran.
