    Explanations aren’t needed, folks. Anders has been nothing but a positive force in the community while InFront has been nothing but a negative one.

    All posts like this deserve in response is a middle finger.

    I think I still have replays of me beating you and Arkhan 1v2, and you and Tony 1v2, sitting around on some hard drive.

    I mean, I don’t think I have any replays of me winning vs LeBron & somebody 1v2. Food for thought.

    You’re better than I usually give you credit for, but in my eyes you’re basically just some new pub on the scene that plays…[Read more]

    Glad to see me and the terrorist get some love. Once he’s out of prison in 10 yrs or so we’ll go back to being the best BA duo ever.

    Having Myth)I( attached to your name actually doesn’t mean you’re cool or old school – there have been fifty different INCA clans.

    The bases with raiders are, overall, on the weak end of the spectrum. Raiders themselves are fairly weak units. If you’re losing to a guy using raiders (who doesn’t already have a huge advantage over you), you’re probably doing something very wrong in how you approach the fight.

  • Shal replied to the topic Things that are just unbalanced or should be changed. in the forum Map Development 3 months ago

    If you’re losing a fight to a mass of raiders, you’re doing something else wrong. If you’re losing a fight to a guy with only a few raiders, you’re going to get your ass kicked anyway.

    Fight the guy with raiders, retreat and make him net units to chase you, then fight and support those units while you start the teleport process… then run away…[Read more]

    He wasn’t talking about the Warcraft lore… and you don’t need to know Warcraft lore to get what a theme is.

    Undead bases with blight terrain makes a bit more sense than having Nachloch in the middle of a bunch of blight, or having Dal Morte in a bright area with shiny towers and elven buildings.

    The way the map was set up with original base…[Read more]

    Mammoth.

    Don’t fight raiders if you can’t win and just run away. Don’t be that guy who sits in front of somebody’s base then runs away 5 minutes later, or tries to steal a burn but can’t actually fight the other person.

    Block your entrances, scout better, get more teleporters, don’t burn with your entire army – the same solutions to laming…[Read more]

    SoXu: cons:
    – using groups is probably the reason why he is so sloppy and does everything so slowly

    EVERY time I’ve ever allied somebody who doesn’t group units, I end up seeing an army’s worth of units scattered throughout the map, forgotten, by mid-game.

    The strength/weakness thing is an interesting idea. What makes a particular player good is always an interesting topic. I won’t make a list since I’m not even active, but… relying on feeding fast/early and being ahead, getting discouraged and throwing the game when you’re behind but not defeated, being unable to develop strategies to win during…[Read more]

  • Shal replied to the topic If you could have one thing changed about ba what would it be? in the forum Map Development 4 months, 2 weeks ago

    LeBron: Rework the bounty system completely. Less basic bounty, bounty gets increased with unit upgrades = less feeding by noobs and less snowballing. But it would change the game a lot and require a lot of time which i dont wanna commit right now, so…

    This change actually sounds pretty nice, if you ever get a large chunk of time and want to m…[Read more]

  • Shal replied to the topic ban request for a1sok in the forum Bot Discussions 5 months, 1 week ago

    The rule is quite clearly designed to prevent coordination with your enemies. Asking why somebody is attacking him is not coordinating with his enemies. A1sok pretty clearly is just expressing bafflement at losing to what he thinks is a bad decision by whoever’s attacking him.

  • Shal replied to the topic Top 5 best bases in game!!!! in the forum Bot Discussions 5 months, 1 week ago

    Corrupted Forest is definitely one of my favorite bases. It’s not always amazing at the end of a game, but it makes life pretty easy early on.

  • Shal replied to the topic Top 5 best bases in game!!!! in the forum Bot Discussions 5 months, 1 week ago

    You need to consider not only a base’s potential but also how likely that base is to fulfill that potential. For example, nerubs are potentially super strong but can get shit on pretty easily at the start, so I wouldn’t throw them on a “top bases” list. On the other hand, Corrupted Forest isn’t an amazing late-game base, but it’s very solid at the…[Read more]

    #2 is the only option that would actually take a step towards fixing the issue. The others just make it so that people dodge via looking at the virtual lobby before they join or they’d make bad players like Skillz take a little longer to reach GM without really changing anything.
