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 do you control both teams in a StarCraft 2 unit tester map?
This map is hosted on EU. I am quite sure that the US servers have the same map, but the name might differ.

comment Do you need to have a Diablo 3 account and character to post on Blizzard forums?
@Koviko: The mere fact that they list it on their official security site under "Web Browsing Safety" shows that they cannot completely prevent it and the site is is not secure. I agree that they have very high security standards though.

comment Where do players get these 'trophy' items
In the end it is just time invested into this game. Please look at the total hours played for the characters with the good items. Subtract about 20 hours for leveling to level 60.

@Ramhound: This is not quite true. It is possible to hijack your account by some nasty JavaScript exploits. If you have a tab open where you are currently logged into the forum and visit some dubious warez site (through a fake link), then someone might hijack your current session and change your account information. It is not very likely, but it is possible.

I think he is talking about crosssite scripting and similar problems. Just open the forum in another Browser and you are fine. (e.g. use Chrome for normal browsing and Firefox for Bnet forum)

comment Do you need Magic Find to drop the new “Legendary” quality “Plan: Staff of Herding”?
@MBraedley: The significance depends on the number of tries and on the drop chance. If the drop chance is very low (e.g. 2% and not your 10%), few "positive" tries are necessary to prove the significance (say I make 30 runs and the first 3 are positive its still 10% and 10 >> 2). But be my guest and prove me wrong with your 30 runs each. I claim that the answers presented here have absolutely no data to back them up. As you seem so willing to claim otherwise do it yourself, I have provided my answer with some data I have gathered and I will not change it until proven false :).

comment Do you need Magic Find to drop the new “Legendary” quality “Plan: Staff of Herding”?
Well its easy to proof for whomever wants to invest the time. Do 10-20 Izual runs with 0 MF, and compare the drop rate to the equal amount of runs with 300+ MF. As already stated I tested it 3 times and I am quite certain it does affect it. Please do not argue with "I think..." or "Seems dubious..." as this is QA not a forum. This criticism is directed towards the current answers.

Do you have any proof whatsoever?

It does affect it, otherwise I would not have gotten it 3 times in a row with 350 MF. The drop chance is not that high otherwise.

comment How is the suggested price determine for commodity auctions?
I guess Blizzard uses trends: Take the "current average price" and look at the trend. If it is falling then suggest a slightly lower price than the "current average price" etc.

comment Half Life 1 Local Game Server fail
Can you actually somehow play the game? Like Single Player, Local Multiplayer or Online Multiplayer? Because in the requirements Windows XP is suggested.

comment What is the drop rate for the Plan: Staff of Herding?
@Alok: You are right. It is affected by MF and this has increased the drop chances considerably.

I will test if it is affected by MF.

comment Why do enemies prefer to go after me instead of my Templar?
You deal much much more damage than he does, thus you are the greater threat. Just do not attack the opponent he is fighting against atm. He is no real tank.

comment What is the standard procedure for getting stuff crafted by other players?
So I give them my materials and the gold first? Then they craft and give me my item back?

comment What is a good (non legendary) crafting item to invest in?
I cannot understand your concern as this question is very specific and it already has a very good and accepted answer.

comment Is it possible to determine a legendary item by the graphics?
You can at least limit the possibilities by ilvl. This works very good with weapons.

Just enter some throwaway email address for the guide. This is not a scam they just want contacts to sell their other stuff.
