There is a huge amount of overlap between people who don't like TE and don't like any map besides gow, and this probably applies to 50% or more players that do play GOW.

Not saying that you are necessarily being dishonest or incorrect about your own motivations personally, but at least for the vast majority of people, it clearly has nothing to do with TE having "less options" or being "less interesting". If that was what they truley cared about, you'd see a lot more people playing other classic maps with far greater regularity.

Good and interesting point.

I shared my initial thoughts regarding the general opinion, but I agree with you. Regarding honesty and personal motivation, I would choose to play TE, because I believe a score of a long series on it gives an overall more accurate measurement of skill, micro/macro mechanics, and strategical thinking. This is due to luck being a significantly smaller factor regardless of what styles match up. Thinking about it more, it is does not necessarily have less options. I believe TE would see more longer games and the later stages of the game would play out differently.

Again, I personally would very much like to learn/play TE, but nobody plays it. U8 and Sg both stated they prefer not to play it, and there is no one else to play against on the (currently) highest level.

Perhaps VIruz/Swift will be around sometime soon.

Regarding Sg, our last series went 9-3. Like a moron, I threw one game in which I was far ahead. I didn't try to win one game as 6, but due to his opening strategy I could have gotten a free win. The last game I lost was as s9 vs 11 with a blind dual. I'm not sure if that game was winnable or if that situation is at all winnable in a close to even match up, but could have done a lot better if I don't start tilting/losing focus, like I almost always do in bad spots. I hope to see Sg unrust after some more sets.

So anyway, U8! When would you like to play? I'd be happy to play you as much as possible, you're fun! Also I'm curious what happens if you play your best and I get a bit better in the near future.

Because it has less options therefore it is less interesting in the long run. Moreover, it is a lot less fun in team games. Lastly, some people like to get in cheap wins, and everyone likes to win from a disadvantage on classic gow.

We can play other maps, but I'll play for fun and learning a bit, as I am not comfortable with most maps. I am okay on forest trails and hsc but on the rest I am either bad or/and I just don't enjoy it.

If you don't like TE, we can do the challenge on classic instead. The first to get 10 wins goal will likely eliminate the luck factor. Although I'd try TE cause I never played on it. Maybe not even a single time.

I can stick around for about 2 more weeks if U8 likes Swift's proposal. I think Gow TE would be interesting for a change.

It's an alright temporary solution given that only one player wants it.

I believe Claw (maybe 2pac) had a solution for auto-squelching. Ask them?

The channels are logged, is there no way to do a simple search specifically for whispers between two players? Alternatively Bs can make a few screen shots and share them here. Without proof this just cannot be taken seriously whatsoever. Seems a lot simpler than writing all these novels or making fun of one's self in front of the police.

Also, making a new ID and only telling about it to certain people should solve the problem...

Besides, Bs herself has a put a significant amount of effort into publicly talking trash (to Tk for example). "Alcoholic husband of a whore" imo is worse than Van's meaningless spam of curse words so... If you're addicted to drama, then learn to handle it!

If anyone is going as far as Bs states, then there must be a reason for it (certainly with Van). Care to share?

Regarding the reference to LoL and Riot games, wc2 players have always all behaved like angels compared to that "community". This easily includes Van (I'm aware he's had terrible behavior tho). I know this from experience.

There were female players (for example from Croatia, xSarax). I don't remember them having had such problems so I highly doubt "I'm female therefore I am subject to regular harassment"  is a valid argument. The problem is your attitude.

Anyway... simple:
New ID / Auto-squelch from Claw / Gather screen-shots instead of talking shit and send them to the admins / visit a therapist and learn to ignore what is meaningless, and care for what is important.

Sounds good!

This is my first actual ID:
http://ladder.war2.ru/player.php?player=LoneKnight
I believe Yamon started teaching me on this ID. Or maybe FaT~Loneknight lol

Before that I think still in 2010 or maybe late 2009 I had this
http://ladder.war2.ru/player.php?offset=10&player=$z3pk0
and another ID "micokaa" together totaling about 200-300 games most of which I was trying to share bases with my allies and make towers everywhere on the map. ;p

I started playing in 2010. In the years 2013 2015 2016 I didn't play at all (I checked my accounts on ladder). Also the last time I have been active was a year ago. I only got serious about 1s in 2014 and maybe a few weeks in 2012.

I am not the one saying that not playing when there were far more people competing is irrelevant. I've been saying past top players would consistently get stomped starting from the Swift/Viruz era until 2017 (this also implies khb and his old competition is ridiculously far below Swift's level in his prime). I am not sure about the present competiton as I only got some games with Sg. Playing the oldies would not benefit either of us much. What would benefit us in terms of becoming more skilled at wasting our time here is active competition. Therefore we should play sometimes and I can stream the games if you really are genuienly worried about me cheating, instead of gruding for a reason I am not even aware of.

I am wondering how do you keep up your speed. I need a couple of series' every week to average at 260. Consistently staying in the 330-380 range I need to non-stop tryhard for weeks which is not gonna happen again.

@Shotgun medivh is good right?
Regardless of whoever you ask the answer will be the same. Medivh is faster than the average of top players but more predictable and one dimensional than a tier 3 player.

List of semi-active players who can 10-0 KHB without a warm up.
Alf, u8, Kyle, Viruz, Shotgun, Braviet, Lone

Judging by your current level of play I'm certain you do not even have the understanding of the game which you may have had a decade ago. Hence you cannot compare the past to the present.

Besides when you are looking for the differences in what people do, stop counting peons. It's so not about that. ;)

I like players with ego, but I honestly have no idea where yours is coming from. Anyway I hope you'll play more and become remotely challenging until around July so we can have some fun!
