Is it only me or has anyone else noticed that as you play games, everyone adopts the same strategy for a while? Then someone better comes along and whoops their asses with a new strategy, and then they all take that one up ...

WHY CAN'T PLAYERS USE THEIR OWN GOSHDARN STRATEGIES?

But then it's like going through a wall of players who do the /exact. same. thing./ :( It's annoying. :P

True, but what can you do? Maybe get the developers to implement a thing where you "register" your strategies, then other people cannot use it? Lol

It is bound to happen in a game like this. It happened in Star Craft and Star Craft 2 as well as in Stick War and SW2. What do you expect?

Yeah, the strategies we used being copied from all the newbies to get better, I hope they will copy my strategy that don't mass giants. :P

Its going to be who can execute the same strategy better and ultiametly who has better Micro :). Basically, you're both playing the same game and seeing who can play it better :P

stop looking down on giant massing, it hurts my heart that I went thru so much to type all that and you guys still don't get it. Crazy Jay even agreed that the post was very good and that I nailed it :(

Don't think repeating your strategies can win all the game, it is not stupid action games, shooting games or etc
try to switch different strategies

That is the way to play in a STRATEGY game

The metagame will be ever-evolving. Don't think of it as players copying everyone else, but they're witnessing what's been effective on them and are willing to use it. For short maps, archer-swordwrath is arguably the best start. This is making use of something that's effective, and will remain effective until someone else figures a different counter.


WHY CAN'T PLAYERS USE THEIR OWN GOSHDARN STRATEGIES?

But that's what separates ranked players now isn't?

In order to order, right? Because 2-3 crawlers SHOULD be able to beat that start, and with a better economy, too.

I was assuming he was using order. Either way, from the start game, anything can happen.
