i just think it's dumb. i mean it's entertaining to see other people do stupid things, but i'd never want to do it.

Well, it kind of challenges you to play differently than you usually do.

also:


how can you hate that guy

it's usually less about challenging yourself to learn new things and more about handicapping yourself from being able to play the game properly.

just smashed some faggit who prematurely GG'd in a 4v4

parked 15 thors and a fuckload of SCVs and hellions in his base

that's what you get for trying to bunker rush 20 minutes into the game

only if you can kill stuff

it's a big problem with most of my allies

they out down a plan, make the preparations, have their expos up

and they just for the life of them can't kill anything (i already killed everything or we're dead)

it's usually less about challenging yourself to learn new things and more about handicapping yourself from being able to play the game properly.

It's usually about finding new game strategies. Like the mass-queen thing, attack every 5 minutes, expand every 5 minutes or only expand to the opponent's side of the map (that was some great fun cause expanding to your opponent's natural as quickly as possible seemed like a pretty legit strategy, contrary to what you might think). Of course there are some really silly ones that he just does so people will have fun watching it, like attack on creep only and BC/Carrier rush, but still for the most part I think it forces you to play the game differently and from time to time you find some new game mechanics that may or may not help you with your overall gameplay.

What I consider to be my signature strategy is something I learned in / was inspired by an episode of funday monday...

spanishiwa wasn't the first to do mass queen, it wasn't his signature strategy (his no gas expansion was), and it never caught on either. plus.. he didn't get it from day9. day9, from what i understand, barely even plays sc2, much less zerg. he comes up with some of the WORST zerg openers for sc2 i've ever heard, especially his infamous roach mineral block gap defense that killed your econ.
