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.

  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    Lmao thats somethin right there.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    How far back were you looking at?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    But yes, that was me.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Do you think I am looking back in the forums for this stuff? LOL, no, I find these posts in the Members Online section or the stats - all these old posts I am bumping and moving around are what people are actually looking at on the website
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Interesting.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    hey Tom your Burrito news is going viral by TheHelper.net standards LOL
  • The Helper The Helper:
    looks like The Burrito has been shared to facebook lol I am getting the facebook bots in now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am going to do one more News Forum like the Weird News but this one is Science News for all the cool science and technology articles in the Archive
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hmm, do I need to start posting some of the Science and Technology news to this new section in the future?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Or do we need to move the news to their respective sections once the threads are old enough, read to be put into the News Archive?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The 2nd thing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have been moving stuff from the current Headline news like a year old and stuff over when I see it in the logs or members online but mostly I have been moving stuff from the Archives
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is possible to automate it so that instead of moving to Archive if it has the Science, technology or sci tech tag that it gets archived there instead. I am considering a new Weird News Tag
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Please do. I'll try to tag the news appropriately when I get the chance.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The new Discourse forum software we are moving to next does alot with the tags and also hashtags
  • The Helper The Helper:
    OK I found the source of your burrito post stuff it is from Reddit and possibly a facebook post too but definitely reddit
