Poor form, Goodjer-dude.

Cool, thanks.

Also, if more people are going to play, we should probably start a new clan because I don't think that anyone that frequently plays, or even reads this topic, can add people to the GWJ clan.

I'm an officer in that clan. I can invite people, as well as promote folks to an officership position. I think.

Cool, if you could send me an invite, I'd appreciate it! And, add me as a friend while you're at it!!

We need to be friends first before I can send a clan invite, looks like. Friend invite sent, will invite to clan once that clears.

Excellent, thanks! I'll accept once my kid is done opening her Christmas presents and I can get back to killing things online. Happy Holidays!

EDIT: Done!

Awesome. Apparently we both need to be online for me to invite you to the clan (I'm beginning to see why this is kind of a pain!) so PM me or something next time you're on, and I'll hop on to invite you. I'm also on WoW a fair bit, so you should see me there, also.

EDIT: Also doesn't look like you can idle. The invite just timed out.

Well, we got it worked out, so that's cool. Maybe when the clan patch comes out, we can get some events going. That could be fun.

I played some Protoss tonight. It feels like easy mode compared to zerg.

Then you realize you can't just a-move your ultra cheap units and every single unit is expensive and precious.

Well, I played Zerg for a year and only beat the very Hard AI 2-3 times. I've played Protoss for 2 days and I just went 2 for 2 against very hard. Maybe I should have been playing Protoss all along.

Nice. Always looking for new Brotosses to join the ranks.

Look, good against remotes is one thing. Good against the living? That's something else.

(But seriously, grats.)

Yeah, I could probably use some tutoring, but I feel like I'm off to a good start.

I laddered a bit yesterday and went 2 and 2. I got a former gold zerg raging at me with a 4 gate, so that was fun.

Summons Accepted! The guy that had it turned it over to me. I am usually in there, but I think everyone is an officer so all invites can be done via a peer. If not, let me know and I will invite whoever. I got a bunch of friend's request a few days ago, accepted them all. Let me know if anyone needs help. We haven't had much activity in the chat room. I don't think there are that many goodjers that play regularly. I haven't seen anyone but pikey in a while.

Yeah I only occasionally play 2v2 on a semi-regular basis. Whenever I go a week or so without playing, I got an old friend that bugs me about playing.

I would love to play some stress-free 1s. I made a point of completely skipping ladder play this season so that my MMR resets.

Add meeee. It's in my sig.

Great StarCraft overlords, I need some help!

I have an account on the American region but I have friends playing on the Oceania region. So I had to create a new id or something when I logged into the Oceania region. How do I find out what my number is?

If I go to my account control, all it shows is my American details which is BlackSabre#6274. How do I find out what the number is on the Oceania server? Is it displayed anywhere?

I haven't looked in a while. I think if you click "add a friend" and then choose character friend from within the game itself, the window will show your character number.

4 gating works really well in Bronze league. After going on a losing streak while learning to play solid macro games, it's nice to break out a few 4 gates for some easy wins.

Yep, that worked. But it didn't matter anyway, they used my original us one and it worked on the new server as well for some reason.

I'm going to have to work on my strategy. I could fend off two of my mates, but the other one just destroyed me with the biggest damn army of Zerg Muralisks and queens etc. It was just this massive zerg ball of doom. Just couldn't stop it. Need to work on the counters.

Has anybody else tried the Starbow mod? It's been in production for a couple of years now I think and seems to be an incredibly well thought out blend between SC2 and Brood War. Some of the pro players and other personalities in the SC2 scene have been streaming it and it's gained enough popularity that Razer is running a $500 tournament for it.

I've tried to poke around for someone to try it out with on Twitter but that seems to be going nowhere

I can't link it from my tablet because I can't get the url, but Totalbiscuit has a cast of a game between Ax.Ryung and Ax.Impact that shows a good number of the differences for Terran and Zerg, and there's other games up on YouTube from both TB and Husky with Protoss.

The most exciting change in the entire game: NO SENTRY. It's just gone. No forcefields, no free scouting from hallucinations, etc. It's a big enough redesign for Protoss that at least at this early stage I like watching Protoss games.

Also, the game discourages the deathball army at every opportunity. Armies are larger, units live longer, battles last longer and are more interesting, it seems right now like it's just a better game.

I want it to get popular enough to affect Blizzard's decisions for Legacy of the Void.

Hopefully, they'll publish it as an extension mod so that you can play it on any map.

I haven't tried it yet, but I'll give it a whirl. I'll have to find some documentation so I can figure out what the new units/abilities are.

Uhm, starcraft is virtually free now?

What exactly are you paying for? Ladder/Campaign?

Only the arcade is free and you can't even use chat channels unless you upgrade. It pretty much defeats the purpose of going free, imo. You can also play custom games with all three races instead of just terran, but I think you still have a very limited amount of 1v1 map pool in customs.

I don't think that you can play any multiplayer by yourself without paying. Just arcade, like liquid said.

Innovation vs MC 5 game series. Most insane down to the wire series of games I've watching in a while. 9 of 9 Squees recommend.

You heard what I said! (doubled...)

If you have customs and Arcade though, isn't that pretty much all you need?

IMO, they should make ladder passes after a year or so after Void comes out.

one of the reasons Starcraft 1 blew up at all in Korea, especially in PC bangs, is more or less because it was one of the earliest 'free to play' games.

I would say no because all I play is ladder and you can't do that for free...yet.

I think I just played 2 vs AI with Idra....

Was he flaming you the whole time and being a general dickhead? If not, it wasn't Idra.

Parting vs Classic in the GSL Code S. Absolutely stunning PvP. Stunning.
