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.

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.

My Starcraft 2 folder does not have any *.app files.

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.

Why would it change? (X * Y * Z) = (((X) * Y) * Z)

+1 for your help, but I posted an answer myself.

comment What is the optimal Marine stutter step frequency and timing?
Still not the correct answer. I looked into it and there seems to be a random delay between attacks (Random Delay Maximum 0.125 Random Delay Minimum - 0.0625) see teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=127158. Furthermore you forgot to factor in the game speed (1.4 X). I tried to set a metronome to 60/0.8608 = 69 speed and it was all wrong. But you are right that its easier to stutter step with stop or hold.

comment How can I test my SC2 Maps without a Battle.NET connection
It still works but: You can play only alone and you have no lag/delay. Microing marines is way easier this way :)
