But you get people like you who button mash and then when the person just spams grapples you call them "cheap" because you don't know how to beat grapples. You can only button mash. You think you should have the same chance of winning as everyone else with no effort. Instead of crying, learn to win.
Alex

You can still have fun if you aren't good. I'm bronze league and I suck. You just have to accept the fact that people better than you will beat you. A worse player should never beat a better player. Button mashing in SF or W+M1 should never win a game. Harder things should be better than easy things

I smell insane amounts of blizzard fanboyism. Fun is not measured by any one person, but its obvious that this game is not intended for people who aren't willing to become elitist themselves. And personally, I don't find excess trial and error losing sprees to be fun. No matter how experienced I get

I mean, there's at least a hundred damn nice maps that comes with Starcraft, but try to get anyone to play even once on a map that's not Temple or Hunters and it's like pulling teeth. Exploring unknown lands, trying new things, playing around, none of that matters as much as breaking 1000 APM.

I've always said the biggest problem with Blizzard's games is the players. Every single one I've ever met or talked to is a hypercompetitive jerk, no one wants to have fun.

How did you people find elitists and addicts in bnet lol. You guys probably played hackers with self-esteem issues =/

But yea, rts is one of those games where you need to learn and think more about the basics before getting to have "fun." (and I loled at how the post button says Troll NOW!!)

Plus SC2 will have divisions just like it does in beta so the players that just want to make up build orders will be playing against other players that do the same thing. Supposedly there will also be a limit of one user name also to prevent a skilled player from smurfing on lower divisions for fun.
BlackMagister

I understand the "noob" comments, hated melee and just played UMS, but really just making a build up and expecting it to work should not work. It is a strategy game your half ass attempt should not be equal to an optimal build order.

What's with all the arguing? If you're going to argue, argue about a game/genre that doesn't suck.

Also, there is nothing wrong with playing RTS casually; if you fail to survive the map, you learn through trial and error, effectively making you a better player, casual or not.

Derek

@Explain NOW!!: Two good, evenly matched, players play a game. Each chooses to either rush, or defend against an expected rush. Neither player gets a decisive advantage immediately, so the game goes on. Between good players, it is EXTREMELY rare for a game to end with the first rush.

If others can't beat it either, then its overpowered and will be patched (because Blizzard has awesome support).

So you go and try it, and then you find that you are still getting beat. So you watch the replay, and bam, you've found your counter. This shouldn't take you four days. (continued)

However, I consider myself a lot more competent at beatemups and stuff like Metal Slug and Contra. I prefer cooperative gameplay, not competitive gameplay that turns people into jerks with a superiority complex. That aside, I've done some pretty "hardcore" shit to overpower stuff on RPGs!
Robert Weizer
over 12 years ago
After years of observation, I think the casual/hardcore division is bunk bullshit. I don't play many fighting games, so when I do, I get trounced. Usually I don't mind (unless it's SF3, I don't care for SF3) and just keep playing. Especially if it's KoF. Starcraft was unfun last time I tried it.
Moonj

[url=#user_comment_27718]@Lol[/url]: You assume that a game can only have one level of play. In tf2 for example there are "pro" servers and there are servers for casual players. The game doesn't necessarily need to be changed but how the players connect to opponents at their skill level may need changed instead.

Seriously, I don't understand why casual players want to drop all games with high skill ceilings to their level. I'm all for making games accessible, but to expect that a casual can play on even footing with an experienced hardcore professional is absurd. Play against a chessmaster, and you lose.

Rushing in an RTS is the same as spawn camping in TF2: A legitimate strategy that only works if you're opponent is completely outclassed.

If you suck at Starcraft, but want to play it casually, just do your automatches. You'll be put in either the copper, silver, gold or platinum skill brackets, and you'll be consistently automatched with people of your own level. You can climb to a higher bracket if you do well.

It sounds like a perfect solution to this problem (this problem being having more advanced players destroying opponents before said opponents can even get a viable defense up) is to have some game mode in the way of a Tower Defense game (one player defending, one attacking).

On the flip-side, should of shown the ADD children that played the first SC. If they hadn't beat me in 20 minutes they'd generally quit the game. Because, you know a player that can defend against the 3-year old tactic of Zerg rush and drag the fight was just too challenging for their ego.

Result: casual gamers leave. The developers mostly just hear from those who stick around and swear the matches are balanced. High level play gets balanced. Low level play gets a very limited tutorial, and no way for newbs to learn how to play at even mid level (aside from finding a willing mentor).
Winged Cat
over 12 years ago
Casual gamers tend to get driven away from such games, leaving only the experts to say how the game should evolve. League of Legends is an example of this in the making: people who aren't good at it are matched against those who are (despite efforts to prevent that, it happens all the time).

I agree and disagree with the baww. Either I get my defenses up (4-5 photon cannons or equivalent) in time to avoid a rush, or I am dead. After that, either I manage to sneak around the map (that other players memorized pre-game) and find the 1 uncontested resource cluster, or I am dead. Etc.

The beta (not demo) is being used as a tool to test the balance of SC2.

Until then I'll enjoy watching my biological units burn to death.

I think some people have the wrong perception of Blizzard RTS games. "Waahhhhh it's too hard" No it's not. I haven't taken RTS games seriously until I got invited into the Starcraft 2 beta, and I placed in the Gold League 2v2 (after the ladders were reset, I placed copper the first time XP)

Anyway, getting rolled over by veterans with vast knowledge of build strategies is one of the reasons for the popularity of RTS games with less complicated gameplay, like World in Conflict. Call these games "noobified", but that's what biased "APM" meatheads say.

No defense? That's hilarious, the standard of Boom(Full econ/tech)/Turtle(Play the D)/Rush(ZERGGG!!!) still exists. And the exertion of map control by maneuver, it's just that you don't get the effective(balanced counter strategy) play until everyone is high Platinum in the ladder.

I've never been a fan of the RTS genre. I've never liked having to refer to other people's strategies and videos to play a game. In any case, when I used to play SC, and the reason I look forward to SC2, is for the scenario maps. Those fun little maps like Tug of War and Day at School if you know em

This reminds me how I can never really "get good" at RTS games. I recently played SCII, and got flattened before even building one marine. Granted, I haven't played any RTS other than AW in years, so...


Also, that's a male Zergling in a dress.
What.

Yeah, RTSs are dead these days. There's no such thing as defense anymore, just counter spamming units and "time buying buildings." I had hope that at least Supreme Commander would be the series to stand against the ADD infected RTS genre... Then Square Enix bought them. RIP RTS... RIP.

I've tried SC2, and the game itself is a lot more user-friendly than its predecessor, especially in terms of macromanagement. Still, games with other 'casual-level' friends are definitely fun.

I'd fall within the category of uninitialized players.... rarely played RTS, and believed in something called "defense"... how naive was I..
