War2 and Math
« on: August 10, 2018, 11:27:21 PM »
anyone here study math/physics/engineering? I realize after getting an engineering degree that Warcraft is full of differential equations, calculus and physics. specifically rates of change and exponential growth. curious if anyone else thinks the same? sorry for nerd talk

yea you can for example use arithmetic sum for the resources you get from your peons.

You can count your raxes to know how many raxes you have.

Lol. Ill take that as a NO. That really surprises me. After studying math, it turns out that the underlying principles of  War2 are governed by math. It may seem obvious, but some of the ideas that you take for granted are concepts you don't see until Calculus 2 and Diff Eq. Anyway, I guess nobody else had this experience. Keep counting your raxes. haha

i think probably the whole world can be expressed in math? and one just doesn't realize it until one has the vocabulary to understand that language

Actually, this is really old school but there was a Heat player named Gokun that was a mathematician/engineer.  And he allegedly was checking the efficiency of his strategies mathematically.  He had some absolutely ruthless cookbook powers.

I think I said that wrong. The surprising part is that the people here never discovered how truly good they are at mathematics naturally. My theory is that the people that are good at this would be instinctively good at upper level math, and thus should have successful careers in those fields.

You do not understand what I am saying about arithmetic sum I suppose.

its pretty stupid to ask about math and physics while you yourself do not contribute any value whatsoever. I am not going to contribute value until some value is contributed to me. Joke thread.

War2 is pure math i You can see it. Jist think about it: 7 peons p stop, 9p stop, 17 hold, 20 hold , dual, cn tush, 1 rax, 2 rax..... Etc. All this ar epute math. Around 1250 lumber when you start chopng and put mill. Just think of it as math, time/result/ economy/made dmg vs losses bla bla bla bla bla

Pure math
