I play only a few games competitively.

  • Starcraft 2
  • Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition

Once in a while I play other games, but I do not spend much time on them. I like to delve into a game until I understand all concepts and strategies that make it work.

Some of my favorite games are:

  • Warcraft III
  • Half Life
  • Phantasy Star IV
  • Fallout 1, 2 & 3

I hate MMORPGs and think they are a waste of time, especially WOW.

comment Why do Terrans drop MULEs in battles?
How bad mannered is this considered? Is this more impolite than saying gg instead of the opponent?

comment Changing FIFA 12 firewall status from Moderate to Open on PC?
You need to forward the ports from your router to your pc AND you need to open the ports in your firewall. Could you have some kind of active firewall (for example the Windows firewall)? Just for testing purposes deactivate / close all your Firewalls with redirected ports from your router and open FIFA. Later harden your system.

comment How does the game decide which building to center on when double-tapping a hotkey bound to multiple separate buildings?
This looks really redundant. Just click approximately where your nexus is at your minimap and doubletap your hotkey. This way you might be lucky and be instantly where you want to be, otherwise you just click 3 times.

comment How do I counter double-terran in 2v2 with zerg?
Zerg units are generally faster than Terran units. Especially Speedlings and Mutas, even Roaches with speed upgrade are a faster than MMM without Stim. I suggest you make about 10-16 Speedlings if Terran expands too fast, otherwise go with 8-10 Mutas. A good tactic is to harass the main with Mutas and when he pulls his MMM ball back just attack the natural with Speedlings. As soon as you see his MMM pull back. This works agains most Terran up to Diamond, as many do not know how to split their army properly.

comment How long does it take for an expansion to become an advantage?
This might be a correct calculation for resources, but it does not address unit production. Because creating production facilities, upgrades and units costs time, thus even if you have all your money back in about 4 minutes you have fewer units and/or less tech compared to investing in an army from the start. I would add at least 30 to 60 seconds when it comes to comparing armies.

comment How long is StarCraft 2's typical input delay compared to other competitive games?
This is BS. Play a solo game, you have no latency. And if your queue is dynamically adjusted to the latency, then there should be none!!!!! Please think before arguing.

@BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft: Do you even understand my reasoning? I do not argue that there is a client/server architecture. I just state there must be some communication with the server, as a pure P2P with 2 players and 1 observer in the same subnet should have NO delay, but there is. Please provide either REAL proof that SC2 does not communicate with the Blizzard servers or at least try to reason. :) Because what you do now is just BS. You can even test your claim: Get 2 PCs in the same network, initiate a SC2 game, kill the internet connection. You should still be able to play.

Create a question for this and I will answer it :) There are pros and cons for every method.

comment How do attacks work in Diablo III?
I do not know what they use, but what you propose is wrong math, as Instead of 100% there would be 110% which would cause every percent value to be wrong. I believe Blizzard has accounted for this, even if they use a single roll table, thus the effect should be the same either way. Still, if you want to know how the system works your question is legit :)

As you do not know the sequence and cannot calculate the results they can be treated as equal. I do not understand how this can change your gearing strategy.
