This is a place where you can share all the small things about you and SCII (both melee and mapping) which are not big enough for a thread.




For example: Has anyone else noticed that on EU most players are fucking pissed about something ? I mean, literally 9/10 wins of mine, my opponent bm's me and then rage quits. Fun times xD still, too bad we can't get along, I mean, both of us like SCII...

Everybody finds their race underpowered.
Except T. Nobody can deny how ridiculous mules are. :p

Protoss and Terran are OP. That's what I'm pissed about.

I'm just kidding of course, we all know the critters are the most underpowered race. God, I hate when I play random and the game gives me 6 ursadaks.

Also, Cruiser command test today. It went good and we found a lots of bugs. Thanks to Bloodcount and Monsterous for helping us test now I have to fix bugs :(

all the more reason to play random - that way my opponent's cant complain too much, although even so, they can always switch their race if they want to.. or look at the % win stats of each race vs race and see that they are mostly balanced..

You say that, but I have a friend who broacast his hate of random: "Random should be removed from ladder!" I think were his exact words :p

Thanks to the way that all ins work in SCII and the way that 90% of the players think, when you see random in ladder 90% of the time it is an all in : D

That's an awesome idea. I think we should definitely try this.

I didnt slap you, i high 5'd your face.
is it just me or is it impossible to make it out of bronze/silver league? last season i maintained rank 4 in bronze frequently beating silver league players (sometimes gold in custom) and i did my placement match, beat a top 8 silver league in < 15 mins, and got 46 in bronze...
the eff?

It's not impossible at all, I did it. I always got promoted during a season and not in placement though, apart from in 2s with my friend (Plat -> Diamond). I was also always rank 1 when I got promoted with a good win loss ratio, but if it placed you against top silver it will mean that your MMR is almost high enough for promotion and if you just keep winning you will get it very soon. The "46th in the league" doesn't mean anything with placement.

I'm pretty sure that placement matches just work like a normal match and it just decides on your league placement based on the MMR which you have gained over the lock period.

Changing the subject to mapping.

I've been testing cruiser command a lot recently with other people. We found a lot of bugs. A LOT of bugs. I guess that was to be expected though. However, I feel I don't have time to keep updating with new features if I have to fix the bugs as well. Oh well, some of them aren't that important yet.

There's a lot of bugs that I have know idea how/why they happen so the only thing I can do is add some good debug messages and wait for people to reproduce the bug(since almost none of the bugs are reproducible in single player.

For example, Bloodcount completely broke my hangar system somehow and it hasn't happened again in like 5 games. The WithdrawItem trigger sometimes gives an error, complaining that it got "0" as a parameter as to which unit to create. However, all units are still created. This might be due to spam though.

have you ever played a game where your 2v2 partner (random ones) complained that you being a terran not moving because you have to defend both his and your base and starts attacking your units... people these days.

i had someone kill 3 of my expos because they "want them" when they already had 2 expos and i had run out of farm in my original expo :/

There are some pretty bad people in SCII... the main reason why I stopped playing team games.

Some of the Data Editor limitations are starting to give me the shits. Did you know that upgrades can't affect every property? For example it can't modify the Search Filters for a damage effect. Now I have to come up with some complicated work around just to get it working correctly. So irritating...

oh god you must have never tried to make usefull upgrades in wc3... limited to actual unit stats and ability levels/availablility

This is different though, the functionality is there to do it via a simple method, it just won't allow you to do it for some unknown reason.

    My grandmother just passed away, she was 95. I might be going to Florida for a week.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have a buddy in Florida who has an extra office space for me with a computer so I can do anything so likely I will be going up there wednesday or thursday
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    thank you Ghan
  • jonas jonas:
    Sorry for your loss

  • Varine Varine:
    I'm sorry to hear that bro
  • Varine Varine:
    Not to distract but is anyone aware of any software to help visually impaired people interact with their PC?
  • Varine Varine:
    Also what's the best way to ship a PC? Should I just wrap the fuck out of it in the case or put the components in static bags and wrapped up individually?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The GPU is the biggest danger typically.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Some of the pre-built vendors use expanding foam to fill in the case and secure the GPU. Otherwise it might be best to remove it and ship it separately.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Similar if the machine has a large tower CPU cooler installed. Those can experience huge forces and destroy the socket during shipment if they are heavy.
  • Varine Varine:
    So mainly just the heavier things that jut out? I'm planning on pulling out the SSD's too and anything that I don't have well secured. I'll probably be good leaving the motherboard and PSU screwed in there though if I bundle it up?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah, I'd expect those to be fine. It's mainly the heavy stuff that is also long/tall where dropping the case would cause it to exert a ton of force on the mount. The motherboard will be fine screwed into the board unless the case itself is somehow severely damaged.
  • Varine Varine:
    I have the original packaging for it, so I was going to just put it back in there
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I have the boxes for the components though and so I don't want to have a bunch of loose shit bouncing around
  • The Helper The Helper:
    damn I just read that lol
  • The Helper The Helper:
    when i read up and saw spray in foam I was like oh shit
  • The Helper The Helper:
    going to do the last controller giveaway in the NUON Dome forum because I just cannot sell them since I got them for free from a deceased NUON Legend. It is my last one from that.
