Re: DE ranked team lobbies (1v1 aswell?)

I think the best solution would be if DE could fix everyone's current grievances through the quicksearch system. Whether they would be commited to do that is rather doubtful in which case ranked team lobbys > crappy QS.

In theory though I do believe this is possible. Fixing the elo matchmaking is .....

Re: A Focus on 1v1 is why RTS struggles

Nice post @Mitoe ! I very much agree with your core point that for RTS to suceed, or continue to survive in future, team support needs significant attention given.

It's interesting to look at the people in general that are attracted to types of games. RTS games are known to be hard genre and require .....

Re: Cycling through TCs

While cycling through tc's and spamming vils feels cool to do it's nearly always inferior to selecting all tcs. Can be useful for adjusting around multiple tc's when aging up but otherwise is a waste of apm and time. Would suggest using the mechanics the game offers to your advantage instead of goin .....

I'm surprised there was never a proper apology on this, ban would have been over at 1 year mark imo if so.
