Unless they put a super AI into the cracked version, that's just sad. The AI currently only knows how to put its thumb up its ass and it can only figure that much out after about 10 minutes into the game.

I will exchange said replay (which is Protoss vs. Zerg and features one of my awesome strategies) only in exchange for glory on the SC2 ladder.

By the way, we're square on Bleach.

Square as in I watched the required number of episodes.

Though I guess there's Akikan.

How many was that? Checking over the Xfire log, you had a total of 8 to watch, 110-117.

Oops, I went over then (last episode watched was 122)

Any comment reserved until after glory on the SC2 copper ladder is attained (or at least attempted to be attained).

I'd actually forgotten that you were up to eight so I thought maybe you'd only watched six. But the full eight, after checking the episodes in questions, I would have been surprised if you could stop at 117.

Though I still look forward to your Akikan reaction. I'll have to get you to watch a second episode of that just because of This One thing, assuming you don't enjoy the tsundere antics enough to do it on your own.

I watched it last night because I was bored and because I was unable to climb to glory on the Copper League due to the absence of my compatriot.

Right now he's going to get control the Hollow lessons or something, which strikes me as tiresome. Dropped again until I have reason to change that.

What subber for Akikan?

It is, kinda! There's a bunch of filler/filler except for one brief plot point episodes.. although I think that's after where you are. I hated it and each week (This was when I was still watching the dub) I wanted to die. YMMV.

I used a combination of CoalGuys and CommieSubs, former for the first half latter for the second. I think maybe because CoalGuys was being slow, so go for them first.

If you want me to watch more, how about telling me when the damn training ends and when Ichigo starts making out with Rukia (who is the only good thing about this show)? And also coming forth to do battle against the forces of darkness once again.

I hate Orihime by the way. "Bloohoohooo, Rukia has an actual personality and Ichigo is paying attention to her, I'm so jealous." Fuck, even by Bleach standards...

Akikan tomorrow.

Edit:
Here's the replay. Had to go through 3-4 of the things. I've fought Zerg on the same map with the same start location using the exact same tactic (successfully) about 8 times. It really works, as they all go for Roaches. This is actually a poor example of the tactic, as I didn't sweep for Overlords well enough. Most of the time I can completely starve the guy if he's unprepared for it.

And yes, as you can see, I don't trash talk. It's not really my way believe it or not.

Wait, didn't you mess with that one guy in DoW2 who said you were being cheap against the poor Orks?

I didn't say anything to him until he started crying like a little girl. That's the kind of thing I will respond to. But generally speaking I regard my opponents in RTSes as abstract personalities telling the enemy units what to do. There being actual human beings behind there is just a theory that has never been proven.

Hey guys, let's not turn this into ANOTHER Bleach thread. This thread is about how I actually made it to Roaches this time before the Terrans stomped my base.

I think the AI's cheating. It always seems to know exactly where I am...

We don't want to hear about how you can't set up a basic defense in your base before the computer (which only has one AI setting - 'Very Easy' ) sends 2 marines to shoot at your hatchery at which point you immediately surrender like some sort of greasy Frenchman. Seriously, what the hell? How do you lose to that? You suck at SC. Go play Dora the Explorer or whatever instead.

Me and Frad are the Copper Kings of BNet, riding high on an 8 game win streak that has turned us from zeros to heroes. We can talk about whatever shit we want to in here, including Bleach (which is shit).

You're lucky I didn't choose this thread to talk about Elona. In fact, the Elona conversation is now moved here.

Frad, how do I set it so that I don't have to pay taxes ever?

Edit (Not for Sam, fuck that guy)

Quote:
PROTOSS
Cybernetics Core
Warp Gate research time increased from 60 seconds to 140 seconds.

ZERG
Hatchery/Lair/Hive
Burrow research time increased from 50 seconds to 100 seconds.
Burrow research cost increased from 50 Minerals and 50 Vespene Gas to 100 Minerals and 100 Vespene Gas.
Nydus Network
Nydus Worm build time increased from 10 seconds to 20 seconds.
Hydralisk
The delay between attacks has been increased from 0.75 seconds to 0.83 seconds.
Infestor
Neural Parasite has been redesigned:
The limited duration of 10 seconds has been removed.
Can no longer target air units.
Cast range decreased from 9 to 7.
Burrowed Infestor move speed decreased from 1.5 to 1.
Infestor life decreased from 120 to 90.
Infestors that are burrowed now have the same threat level as above-ground units for the purposes of automatically acquiring targets.


I thought Warp Gate was a bit quick, right now there's no reason to ever want a normal gateway if you want any amount of ground units. As a Protoss dude, I agree with that one.

All Zerg nerfs are welcome, of course.

Sam are you serious about the AI, I mean I guess I did have some trouble when I first started but I still won.

Yay nerfs, go Terrans.. is how I'd feel if so many opponents weren't Terrans. Man, that's MY race, you play as something else! :terran:

Also c'mon you two, we're all friends here.



Hey is anyone else they didn't add Space Orks? May as well complete the ripoff.
Terrans also need Commissars. Image

I wouldn't mind if they just put a button into the game that made Zerg players automatically lose every game they join. Screw the Zerg. Lousy bastards.

Terrans do seem to be the most popular race, but I think that's because they're the most versatile right now. With Protoss if you go ground forces and they get air you don't really have much room to react. With Terrans your Marines can shoot anything, your main anti-air flyer can turn into a mech, your command center has a scanner and you generally just are never in a position where you have to think 'well, didn't prepare for that, guess it's over'.

Commissars are lame, keep IG shit out of here.

The AI is pretty bad ;(

The last time I played the AI, I set it to 1v2 and killed them both in like eight minutes.

It turns out it was that one map that was making my video card cry, Desert something. Not replays and not because I hadn't rebooted. I don't know what it was about that particular map, but it must have been requesting something that my video card didn't like. Switching to Windowed (Fullscreen) seems to have fixed it. That's going to be annoying though, having to manually switch Desktop resolution every time I play if I want to play in 16:10 instead of 4:3. Fuck, where are my video card recommendationsssssss

I don't think any 2v2 maps use that tileset so we're good. So hurry up and join me in Holy Battle.
