the game is growing all the time, players are getting better, you can not compare the players from 2000 and from 2010, if any of you played in SC:BW knew that in Match up PVZ protoss never played FE, then they start doing fast expand(12 probes 1 forge 2 cannons) in 2018 now they are doing 1 cannon 1 getway and rush zerg with fe
I watched few replays "top players" and they made MANY mistakes, now players tier3 are not doing basic mistakes, they were good few years ago, ofc they could be now also but we will never know this
For example braviet, he is playing all the time,and he still dont know how to make hall for best mining gold from mine
this questionnaire is bad
P.S. alf is nup
Players may be getting better relative to how good they were, but you're right, you cannot compare to the past. The players and games in war2 from 98-2003 were far superior to the games of today.
I compare my experience in playing in those eras with watching numerous replays from your tournaments in the last year, and playing in the last month.
No one is doing anything new or special that wasn't done before. I've been trying very hard to find any improvements in tactics from anyone's game, but I haven't seen any.
Until I do I will keep my opinion as is.
The popular strategy among many of you, this 14-16 peon hold... that gets lust with 6 or 7 ogres. You know what we called this shit 15 years ago? Archy lust. Cuz Arch would get rekt right after his 6 ogre lust attack failed.
The starcraft strategy you're talking about.. tactics come and go, that's all the meta game. Once zerg starts modifying their opening, that opening won't be as good, it adds nothing to your point because it proves nothing.
The War2 metagame in 1s and team games has always been changing, and back and forth to old ones. That's just a reflection of the players creativity, or lack thereof.
And when referencing the current crop of players that I've played with, except for maybe braviet and paperboy, lack there of.
