Lua is highly underrated!

"This is a question and answer site. Not a "complex question, insightful answer that grows you as a person site." People should be able to ask simple questions with simple answers, that just may so happen to be spoon-fed. A lot of people just want to write code that works. Not be empowered. – Owen Sep 19 '08 at 21:23"

comment What is the most extravagant building material in Minecraft?
@Kurley: Not neccessarily -- you can't directly place blocks on chests or workbenches (possibly jukeboxes and note blocks as well), so that's quite a bit of time spent just getting those in place.

comment What is the genre of HoN/DotA/LoL?
@hexa: That reminds me of a comment I read somewhere saying something like "LoL/HoN/etc are NOT MOBAs, they're dota clones". So all FPS games are doom clones? :P

comment What does backdoor mean in strategy games like DotA or LoL?
I'd like to point out that every hero you listed has high mobility in some way, so I'd assume that that would be a good characteristic for a backdooring hero to have :)

comment What is an effective counter to late-game Protoss balls in TvP?
This is kinda old i know, but I've recently noticed high-level Terran players going for heavy siege tank play starting with blueflame hellions first.

comment How do I improve the performance of StarCraft II?
Part of it is that SCII isn't really designed for A: high/wide angle camera shots that render a lot of terrain at once, and B: simulating/rendering mass amounts of units; projectiles are resource-intensive for one and the rendering tech is a lot fancier than something that is really built for large scale (see SupCom series).

So Zerg's answer to... anything is "buy a couple unit types, micro really good, oh and spam infestors"? :P

comment What is the real duration of the Viking's transformation?
@Oak: I think it rounds up to the next whole number for time, so yeah that makes sense (2.84 rounds up to 3).

comment What is the real duration of the Viking's transformation?
@Oak: To find it, open the editor, then click the middle button in the group one left of the far right set of buttons below the toolbar. This opens the data editor. Now under the Data Type dropdown, pick Abilities, then search for Viking (search bar in the same pane as said dropdown). Pick one, then double click on the first item in the Ability Commands - Morph Info page. You'll get a dialog with more info and the duration is, i'm pretty sure, the the largest Duration value in Info - Sections - Durations. The random delay is at the bottom of the same window.
