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 How can I run the original Diablo 1 on OS X Lion (10.7)?
I think this person thought the 'natively' part is mandatory. I interpreted it as a suggested option, which my solution does address.

comment Is it considered a loss if you logout or close the game during the countdown?
Sorean has posted the correct answer. I want to archive my answer. That is why.

comment Does every Blizzard add-on require one game account?
Yeah I know that. But do I have to fulfill the prerequisites multiple times (getting multiple WoL) on one account in order to get multiple HotS?

comment How can I measure the effectiveness of my Macro?
Well BWCoach seems to coach you throughout the game, but I do not necessarily need that. I would also accept only a simple text output of the state of the game after an optimal execution. It would be nice though.

I do not know this tool, but if it does what I specified: Yes.

comment How can I download and install Uranium for mine craft?
Well you need the actual setup files for the mod to work. If you have only instructions without files they are worthless.

I would not do it as: 1. They might change 2. They are worthless if the provided link does not work.

comment Does every enemy type have the possibility of being elite?
I do not think so. Especially immobile enemies like the spitting things on the wall in some caves cannot be elite.

comment What can SCVs Repair?
Could you extend that question to structures like Protoss and Zerg buildings.

@BBz: Why should he post a source? I mean if he tried it and it works that is proof enough.

comment Can Terran Medivacs heal allied units?
You should add that they can only heal Protoss bio units hit points, not their shields. And they cannot heal flying units, like Mutas and Broodlords.

comment Can Terran Medivacs heal allied units?
Why the down votes? This is a reasonable question. Easy to figure out, but still a good question.

comment Keyboard Multiple key press problem
This is correct. Either get a "gaming" keyboard, they tend to have a n-key rollover where n >= 5, or a gamepad.

comment What is the most economical Zerg opening?
As mentioned, you can go even more economy, but at some point you get too vulnerable to timing pushes. You have no units to prevent your enemy from scouting. If he sees you do not have any gas (at 17) he will push as soon as he has higher tech units. (Speedlings, cloaked Banshee, 4 Gate etc.) Later gas means later speed and later Lair tech.

comment Why does the 'favored' rating change from start of game to end of game in Starcraft 2?
This still is not fixed. It seems they will either leave it as is or it has very low priority.

comment Why can't I give items to friend in my party in Diablo 3?
If you have the "full" version and your friend has the "starter set" then you cannot trade or otherwise interact with each other. This is mainly to prevent some kind of abuses. For example you could make a dozen starter set accounts and put all your items on them. You would have unlimited storage space.

comment What are the biggest gameplay differences between Lips and Singstar?
You might want to take a look at UltraStar, which is a freeware PC clone of Singstar.

comment Xbox 360 with 3 red lights
You can always take your unit to a store and ask if they could try to attach it to another power supply. But why bother if you have warranty anyways, just send it back.

comment How to defend against a Roach-ling all-in with Forge FE
This will delay his timing attack, although it will be a bit stronger. Once your first Stalker pops out scout with it aggressively. Only Speedlings can kill it by that time and if he has like 6-8 of them he cripples his push. So even if it dies you have an advantage. If you see the Roaches set up more defenses and kite them until they reach your base. I am not saying this is easy, but your chances of survival should be around 50%.
