Thats nothing.
If you are really brave you write that into a comment on youtube and you can see how the flame-wars start.
Starcraft 2 became serious business lately.

Starcraft 2 isnt serious business because its umm... Starcraft 2... and thats the exact reason i dont post anything other than league and minecraft stuff on youtube right now, because im prow with league, or use to be when i still played every day, and minecraft is less flame-centered and more of a community game

but generally most of the posters on youtube are little kids who just flame all day long after they ditch school, slowing causing their brains to litterally deteriorate, i assume by the time they are 20 they will be paste eaters

So... if StarCraft 2 isn't srs bsns, then I suppose MLG isn't srs bsns. We can just throw out the five/six digit payouts so many tournaments give out and the multitude of business they generate. Or their massive fan bases. Or... you know... The fact that professional gaming is becoming a bigger business than a ton of other things. Or even that it's South Korea's National Sport.

what %age of the beginning players actually hope and dream to be massive tournament winners?
when that goes from the 1-5% it is to 50%+ like actual sports id take it more seriously, and even then more developed forms of entertainment are still not taken seriously all over the place, the super bowl is watched equally for the sport and for the hilarious commercials... nothing is serious enough to be anal retentive about it 100% of the time, and im not a serious player i dont plan on joining any tournaments and 6 digit payouts from the biggest tournies isnt that much, thats saying the biggest, average are probably in the 3s/4s (max) and are over-spammed with unskilled players that are pro cheesers

this is probably getting out of hand a bit but are if there are 50% pro players then it really isnt pro anymore is it...
you do realize that in any sports the pay from winning tournaments doesn't matter? Its the sponsors that gives them the money.
The point to take away here is just make more accurate claims next time and everything will be alright.

Whatever you think how "serious" or not this game is, you have clearly witnessed, that saying "i can pump out 150 marines in the first 5 minutes" will pretty much result in spam and flames or at least a larger discussion.
I would think thats an indicator for "serious".
However, i like strategy games and talking about tactics. If somebody comes up with a tactic which is obviously fake my nerd chills are forcing me to state the obvious.

Guys. I have a great strategy for Terran. It's really easy. Since we all know Terran is op, we just have to mass Marines.

Here's my BO:

6 Supply Depot
6 Barracks
6 Barracks

Then we pump marines and add on Supply Depots when we run low on minerals.

Using this method, I can get 200/200 in the first 3 minutes.

Ok guys, probably time to end this part of the discussion and get back on topic, otherwise this thread will keep spiralling downhill and then be locked.

This.


And here are a few things just for the records:

If SCII is serious or not it depends on the place, in Korea it is like a relligion, in my country few people know it exists.

There is no way you can max with any race under any conditions in the early game. The fastest possible max out is the zerg macro roach all in cheese, which hits ~13th minute.

I did that once too ;P I did basically a 14 hatch 15 hatch 16 hatch 17 hatch pool when I had the money drone up until all bases are saturated then mass zerglings with 3/3 upgrades.

I lost because they went Helions :(

i wonder if mass spamming the swarm hosts and tempests will be viable in HotS
