Is there no way to install anything on the client side that will detect a previously unknown hack in the works? Like displaying through fog of war which obviously shouldn't happen and then auto-banning... or is that too imprecise or invasive?
I remember Party used to scan HDDs and even take screenshots of user end clients to make sure you weren't using banned software or hacks. At least they allegedly did.
I don't see any reason why they couldn't do this (taking screenshots of the game), although for a video game I think scanning other processes running on your computer is a little intrusive.
so it seems as if jaedong managed to suffer the most ridiculous build order disadvantage known to man, three hatch before pool vs canata's BBS
fortunately, canata is terrible so jaedong wins anyway
And so the story continues:
Ace match of T8 vs Stars. Rematch between Soulkey and JD (with Soulkey having beaten JD earlier in the SC2 set). Soulkey goes 10pool with drone pull + 2 spines vs JD's hatch first. JD once again wins the game anyway.
I ****ed up once by accidentally pressing escape on my Nexus canceling a probe a few seconds in, so I panic-cb'd it since I'd only done one probe cb so far. I got the warp-in at 6:00. Look generally good?
Meh, you should really just do the version with two CBs on probes, tougher to scout and they don't have much deviation in the end. Here's the problems with your 4 gate execution:
0) Your first pylon: Get in the habit of getting your probe off the mineral line to make a structure a little before you have the money (You did this pretty well with the gateway). You ordered your probe to make a pylon from the mineral line, so he had to move a bit to make it. That's lost time.
1) You made a third pylon in your base at 18/26. You're nowhere near being supply blocked, and you're supposed to cap yourself at 26/26 before your warp in anyways. This extra pylon at home also makes it difficult to get your gates up in time. This also caused your zealot to get in the way of production of your stalker, which delays it getting across the map.
2) You need to scout, if for nothing else than good simulation of the build. Scouting after gateway is pretty standard with this build in all matchups.
3) From ~4:45-5:10, your gate was not getting chrono'd. That's a whole missed chrono if you were going my build (I don't advise it for you actually. You actually need perfect chronoing to do it since it makes warpgate take 110 in game seconds and 100 seconds of it is chrono'd. Just do the two chronos on probes build).
Overall, it wasn't bad. You could have had 3 of your warp ins at 5:50 and the other at 5:55 if you managed it a little better (Warped in right when they finished transforming), which is pretty good. I don't mind that you didn't get the second stalker because it doesn't seem to get across most maps fast enough with this build.
As an aside: If you want to warp in a bunch of a unit super fast, you can hold shift, press the hotkey for the unit, and left click a bunch.
The SC2 community is so articulate. I posted a complaint/suggestion about reducing the downtime in NASL on Reddit. It wasn't flamey or anything... just noting the issue with prolonged downtime and offering the example of MLB/NFL as to why people try to avoid filler.
I received the below well-written reply. Please note the quote he leads off with is not something I said.
"I don't have all day to sit here for 2 minute commercials that support the tournament but I'll watch the stream for six hours but i really don't have any time"
if you don't have any time why are you playing games? are you ****ing stupid? did you quit watching television because you "didn't have time" for the 8 minutes out of every thirty for commercials? no because you not having any time means you're SITTING ON YOUR ASS in the first place watching something that has no real progressive benefit for your life. get over yourself.
and when you're older than 20, we'll see how your perceptions have changed.
Ah, yes. I can't wait to turn 20 and become a big boy! Gain some world experience and perspective! Since he arbitrarily picked 20, I'm going to assume he's 20 at the oldest. That is being generous, considering his grammar and excellent emotional control.
