starcraft 2 gamers?

been playing a bit this year (bronze), was wondering if anyone else here plays? like the tf2 thread, we could do free for all or team matches and 1v1 if you're up for it.

i use terran for now and have low apm 30, just strategy so no worries about me being like the pro's.

not sure what you need from me to add, but my account says ragdollbeast#1574. i'm playing around 6pm and up, est. come play!

Hey,

I play quite some SC2. I dont do much 1V1, i prefer the chaos and action of 4V4.
In 4V4 im ranked 1st in my plat division (hopefully ill get to diamond soon).

In 1V1 im just bronze, but only played about 3 1V1 games (when the game just came out). Maybe i need to try it again.


Btw, im absolutely loving the 2.04 patch!! Cant wait for heart of the swarm!

yea the update looks great! the auto harvest thing threw me off as well...not sure if i have to adjust my strategy when hots comes out, i guess we'll have to see. so far, the one i use is pretty good. something i learned from playing chess with the old guy in my neighborhood.

IMHO the higher ranked 1v1's usually win by cheesing you, or they've had more matches than you. they can't play a straight up strategy game when the odds are even. if you eliminate the cheese, you can win. some of them win by saying GG, and then wait for you to leave because they think you're a noob and don't realize you get points to whoever taps out first. which i learned a few games in myself.

it's not that scary once you get the hang of it. at the end, it's just a game really. add me up!

Wondered if anyone for cgtalk played this game. Personally it is the only game i play. Since the game is now global would love to play people in the US too. Sorry if you are on the Korean server, the ping from EU is too high :(.

I have to admit speaking from someone in masters, this made me chuckle

Haha, about my thoughts too. I'm low-diamond/high-plat in 1v1 (in diamond at the moment). I use the ID JtheNinja #313 on NA. I'm usually on in the later-evening pdt (9-11pm ish, usually) Not sure if I ever powered up my EU server ID yet (does it use the same character code on all regions?). I think my ping is decent enough if we're all going to be over there.

Should we get a CGTalk group started up in game?

I play very often but I'm not very good (I just haven't really tried) mostly I just play games in the arcade.

i only meant it with my league, which is bronze. no doubt higher ranks would kick my ass. i had to stop playing soon after i started. too addictive. i'll come back...someday.

I remember my days in bronze. Just play it straight, make workers, work on not getting supply blocked, dont cut corners, don't play greedy. You will roll everyone and get out of there pretty fast bar a few losses to some quirky play.

I spent a month in bronze when SC came out but only a day in silver and a week in gold. Solid play is the fastest way to progress i feel.

Btw your character code doesn't work also I have added Daniel and Jason.
