All he can do is push buttons. He's no different than the schmuck who works the DPS machine at the Post Office and it good at pressing buttons. He has no skills in the real world and when he gets a little older and can't press buttons as fast, he'll be on welfare.

That's basically the same as every athlete who ever existed ever.

Essentially, yes. What is the REAL purpose of any sport besides entertainment? We could survive without it.

I don't care that I lost either. The fact I was able to go against Firebathero is like a dream come true.

HOLY **** I JUST PLAYED AGAINST FIREBATHERO...TALKED TO HIM...AND FOUGHT AGAINST HIM.

I lasted a total of 8 minutes before he obliterated my base with 30+ vultures.

Nice.

I've been playing SC in my free time along with browser games since I really don't have the time for consoles any more. Too bad it doesn't seem like anyone here shares that enthusiasm.

Have you been watching any SC lately? The cheating and drama in the foreign league makes for some extreme lulz.

Also who is Dhampy and where did he buy his soapbox of pretentiousness? I need one.

It's a video game.

Star Craft may be a video game, but it is also one of the most challenging video games on the market. Mind you this is still after 11 years on the market.

Yes. Video games are just exactly what they are called. Games. But Star Craft is more than just a video game. It requires so much freaking skill and talent to even kill an average player. I know I couldn't stand up to Neo and I've been playing for over a month now. I wouldn't even last as long up to Neo as he did to the programmer.

Play the game for a while and you will see.

CH should have a place where we can get games going. I'm always looking for new people to lose to horribly. I mean, I'm bad enough that I lose to cheez plays most of the time even when I scout them well in advance.

However, getting ones body into the physical shape to play a sport and achieving the mental acuity to grasp extremely complex systems of sport is vastly more challenging in the first place than memorizing combination of buttons to press and programming macros into your keyboard. It takes a lifetime commitment to entertain us in sport. Whereas there are small children who are good enough at games to be pros. There isn't any kid who can play with the pros at anything else.

A few years ago, PC Gamer analyzed Starcraft freaks and came to a conclusion--there are set systems of play that lead to you winning--it's not victory, it's a piddly game that wasn't all that great when it was new--if you follow one of these set system of play you will win against certain opponents who use other set systems of play. Learn it and you will beat Neo.

Just like chess or a rubix cube or fencing or even football--it's all about a system. If you don't have a working one, you won't win.

I'd believe that. Some time last year I was at my cousins house and he showed me a way to play online on Starcraft. I'd never played it online and using what he showed me I won both games I played. That was the only time I had ever played any RTS online.
