If you don't care about visuals or animation in anime. You're doing it wrong.
So you only watch movies with $200+ million budgets for the awesome special effects then? Is Transformers your favourite film of all time or do you prefer to watch movies with good characters and plots? Why the hell should anime be any different?

|Yeah, the game has a pretty steep learning curve. You'll fail a lot before you figure it out. It's nothing to do you with you sucking; it's just a hard game to learn.|

|Um... lol? You start by arguing that things are too easy, then sarcastically imply that I think things are too easy? What?|
I'm sorry. In your first post, I thought you were replying to me and arguing in favour of complicated/harder mechanics. We're actually on the same side here. I agree with you.
That's what I get for not reading things carefully.

Yeah, that sounds about right. I'm high diamond and I can usually hold it off unless I'm in one my "play like an idiot" phases. Still irritating as hell though.

|Banshee play can be fun. I know as a Protoss I ****ing hate dealing with those things. It's not all that effective, but I imagine it can work well at the lower levels if you have the micro for it.|

|If you did actually agree with that statement, then you would realize how ridiculous the concept of being "too easy" is. Clearly you don't really agree with the statement.|
Yes, I suppose you're right. During Chess tournaments they should release a bunch of angry bees on the players. I mean, just grabbing your pieces and moving them to another square on the board is way too easy; gotta make it challenging.

|Mechanics should never be difficult to use, only to use effectively. "Balance" is not achieved by making things harder than they need to be.|
The game should be as easy as possible to play, with the skill and strategy coming from how you use the mechanics available to you.

|Best way to handle Terran mobility in PvT? High diamond. (4) | Posted on May 4, 2012, 3:34 p.m.|

|Best way to handle Terran mobility in PvT? High diamond. (1) | Posted on May 4, 2012, 10:14 a.m.|
|A drop in the main, a drop in expansion #1 or #2, and the main army waiting right outside for me to split my forces. It's infuriating. I've tried leaving 3-5 stalkers at each base to snipe incoming medivacs, but unless you know the exact angle they're coming in from you're not going to be able to stop them before they unload. I still win a fair number of my PvTs even with the drops, but my god are they annoying as all hell.|
I know that Blizzard is giving Nexuses the Mass Recall ability to deal with this because it's a real problem, but there has to be a decent way to deal with this before the expansion comes out.
1.) Split up my forces the best I can?
2.) Engage the weakened main Terran army for a few seconds before taking care of the drops?
3.) Keep a ton of blink stalkers in each base to handle drops?
4.) Have like 4-5 observers to watch all angles for incoming drops?
5.) HTs to feedback medivacs?
6.) DTs at each base to snipe a few units and force a scan?
7.) Cannons? Awesome in PvZ, but they seem to melt fast in PvT.

|That means even the person is last place of Platinum is better than 60% of players. That's not bad, no matter you look at it. Worst case scenario is that they are slightly above average, which is still not bad. That also means that anyone in Diamond is better than 4 out of 5 players.|
Good thing you didn't post this on Team Liquid. They consider high masters to be poor over there.
There's this weird obsession with only calling players that are pros good. Can't go 1v1 against Nestea? Well, then you just suck. It's a pretty messed up way of thinking and it can't be too good for your morale.

|Macross and Gundam questions (10) | Posted on April 12, 2012, 12:05 p.m.|
|Woah ****. Like barely any responses make any sense in this thread.|
Glad to know it's not just me. I couldn't tell if people were suggesting that I keep watching or bang my head into my desk until I lose all memory of Gundam/Macross. All I could gather is that I messed up the name for Mobile Suit Gundam by calling it Gundam Wing by mistake.
The 0079 movie trilogy sounds perfect for me. The pacing was a big issue I had with Mobile Suit Gundam. I'll check that out and give the new series a shot too. If I don't like either one I'll simply cut my losses and assume that the franchise isn't for me. Thanks.
|Macross and Gundam questions (1) | Posted on April 11, 2012, 8:59 a.m.|
|Okay, so a while back I tried watching SDF Macross and Gundam Wing. I hated both of them with the fiery passion of a thousand suns. Should I check out any future series?|
I watched all of Macross, but, although I had no problem with a love story as the primary plot in theory, the execution was horrible. The whole thing was so unbelievably cheesy. Max and Milla getting married? The Power of Song (a crappy song too) ending a war? Max convincing the fleet not to fire on the enemy because it would make his luvvy-duvvy sad? I felt like I was drowning in a bowl of sugar.
I have a much more positive opinion of Gundam Wing, but I really hate Amuro, and, to a lesser extent, those annoying tag-along kids. I only watched about 10 episodes, but Amuro just pisses me off. I've never hated a main character more in my life. He survives every battle despite being incompetent against superior foes (poor Char) because he's playing in God Mode.
I thought both series started off great with Lynn Minmay and Hikaru lost in the SDF and Amuro finding the Gundam in the first episode and I was interested in see what happened next. Both shows also had some great moments at times, but unfortunately I felt that the writers really dropped the ball. So, back to the original question, should I check out any of the future series? Would they be more to my liking?
