Brag: Went to Universal Studios
Beat: Had more fun at a LAN center than Universal Studios
Beat: 1-7 on ladder at said LAN center (partly due to it not being my own setup)
Variance: Washington DC next, hopefully hotel has better internet (though I still can't play SC2 again until Tuesday cause lol-3-yr-old-laptop)
kk i havent complained about the new maps at all but...
antiga shipyard is nice v nice vs protoss i love it
vs terran it is B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-BRRRRRUTAL WOW HOLY ****ING SIEGE TANKS
esp when you pull the spawn position and your 3rd has to expand TOWARDS him and his expands AWAY from you. why would blizz design a map like this? and this has nothign to do with race. a T who has to expand towards me is at a big disadvantage too... why are some positions just inherently better than others?
hitting a bit of a wall at the level where everyone was 1700-1800 last season (yes i check) :-(. going like .500 vs these guys altho i played very badly tonight and was trying out new styles.
however the 1800 level terrans arent as kind/awful as the lower level ones. there's an obv huge difference. but that could just me being results oriented pulling close position antiga and close pos shattered a few times. im fairly certain an 8yo terran could figure out how to take advantage of the terrain on antiga. there's practically signs saying "PUT TANKS HERE AND LOL!!!"
mostly my fault, tho, for not properly preparing for such things!
but it's a v nice map vs toss (at least no toss has overly abused it against me yet) so i cant bitch too much.
