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.

    that sucks
  • jonas jonas:
    @midnight8 how is it looking
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    meh, me, wife and her friend thaty traveled with us all have covid, seems to be winding down some for me at least. Felt like complete shit, been sleeping a lot, just bieng lazy as hell. I feel like that today has probably been like 11 or 12 days since exposure. Have not had any fever today, and have not taken any meds, so hopefully by monday or tuesday I will be good to go, sadly have passed it on to our teen son, I guess that was pretty much unavoidable
  • The Helper The Helper:
    hope you get to feeling better and get vaccinated my friend
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    I will at some point, but so many vaccinated people still getting it. One of the bands we watch in vegas, all 4 had been vaccinated and are now positive.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Symptoms?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think the symptoms are typically less severe if previously vaccinated.
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    I have had all of the symptoms, taste is slightly starting to come back, but smell, no. Honestly, just been a little miserable, have never felt in any danger from it. Being trapped at home sucks. lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    meh, got a little fever again this morning, guess gonna be a few more days
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I went to Comicon this last weekend I hope I dont get it I feel fine and I am not vaccinated and did not wear a mask
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Comicon really was not packed though like it was in the past. I am not really worried though it was the most people I have been around in a year.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Still, getting vaccinated is a good idea. We're getting Delta variant spikes here in Boston.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not against vaccination at all I just have a serious procrastination problem I plan on getting vaccinated soon
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    was kinda same with me, I was gonna do it, and life got in the way.
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    we wore mask in some places, but at 118 degrees outside, little rough. :)
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah i had another friend in Vegas talking about that heat damn
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Well I do not think I got Covid from the Comicon

  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Pushed out a new Pokemon Walking algorithm build. With a new system in place, I'll probably start tackling triggers and NPCs,
    +1
  • Varine Varine:
    Is it fucking hot everywhere?
  • Varine Varine:
    What's a pokemon walking algorithm?
  • jonas jonas:
    it's an engine for pokemon games that closely emulates the walking behavior of pokemon red/blue/yellow
  • jonas jonas:
    basically if you wanted to implement pokemon yellow from scratch, and you'd want it to feel as close as possible to the real thing, you'd start with that
  • Varine Varine:
    Like from the Gameboy games? I'm not at all familiar with Pokemon.
  • jonas jonas:
    yeah
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I only played the Pokemon games on the Gamecube and Wii and such not on the portables my kids had all those games but I never really played on the portables. Now that I think about maybe once sooooo long ago.
