    We'll use the Penny Arcade ingame chat channel to organise things.
    I just realized I've never used the SC2 chat features at all. How does this work? :lol:

    @Gabriel_Pitt it's been too long since I joined a channel to talk you through it without being ingame, so I'll figure it out closer to the time.

    /join heroes of the wang

    ??

    is that still our channel?

    Congrats to Vari for an undefeated run, and congrats to @Gabriel_Pitt for being a worthy opponent, even knowing they were outclassed going into it, put up a fight in every game.

    Lessons I learned - don't forget to close the front door when fighting protoss, because that's how you get DTs all up in.

    IF you do forget to close the front door, and you have turrets up to discourage oracles, and you 'meh' that you have time to get marines out because you have scans... make sure you DID'T forget to upgrade to orbital command. :lol:

    Anybody watching GSL / King of the Hill tomorrow morning?

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.
  • VariableVariable Mouth Congress Stroke Me Lady FameRegistered User regular
    I'm only watching gsl live if I can stay up. We'll see. Def will watch the vods asap otherwise, likely tomorrow afternoon.

    I've been watching the Shoutcraft tourny rerun and messing around vs the AI. The LotV units make me feel like sc2 is more "open" in terms of cool strategies than when I last played. Lots of cool unit combinations.

    Ya? Curious as to why you agree. My opinion is just based on "hey this seems like there is alot of possibilities" but not any thing else.

    Probably the biggest tactical change in LotV is that now each race has several common AoE dangers they might need to worry about in each match-up, so you tend to see offensive and defensive micro that is more interesting and impactful

    Aside from PvT I guess, where Terrans still mainly try to get effective use out of single-target units? Plus ghosts still being strong if it goes that long

    I somehow muted my PC as the SC2 client opened and did not notice until the matchmaker had sealed my fate

    But like Scarlett-chan, I focused and built a lot of banelings and prevailed even without sound

    i yolod into my placement matches even though ive havent played sc in forever. i went 1-4 and it put me in gold?! Are there just so few people playing that getting one win puts you in gold? It blows my mind. I figured i should be down in bronze/silver since i barely even know what im doing.

    my one win was very satisfying though. My opponent scouted that i was starting to mass mutalisks and he built a bunch of vikings and some turrets. so i quickly switched to hydras/roaches and he just didnt have the right units to stop it.

    The system decays your MMR a set amount if you've been inactive for a while, but then it is reluctant to place you much lower than that, even if you lose pretty much every placement

    Also, sometimes your one win is where the system says, "Ah ok, this is probably approximately where they belong"

  • kedinikkedinik Registered User regular
    I suspect that the average skill level is a bit higher these days, because you're mostly playing people who have kept at it for a while now

    But that is quite likely a convenient, arrogant suspicion :3

  • EnigmedicEnigmedic Registered User regular
    i just havent played a single game against another person since like the launch of the zerg campaign and i dont think i even finished my placement matches. before that i was platinum in WoL after grinding it a bit. but im nowhere near as good now. my apm was like 50.

    That sounds about right to me

    I think the system decays your MMR down by approximately 1 league for inactivity, no matter how long you were inactive

    And then placements don't usually move you around too much if you've already got an MMR

    I don't want to spoil GSL but the winner is someone who has always been known for having a unique style and making things work that other people haven't even tried. that seems to tie into your feeling on things. that's all I meant, I think you're right based on what I've seen but also based on that 'evidence'
