A beginners guide to Starcraft.

I *could* be on right now but i tend to play UMS more often now until i find someone to practise with. I'd like to practise with coRt because he's rusty too and we haven't melee'd in a long long time.

I haven't played a melee since late November/early December last year, so i doubt my probe strats would be any sort of challenge for you.

Tonight of yours is almost dawn for me (if you're american), so, I'm afraid not :-/

To get the MAXIMUM use of your peons, you want 3 per min patch and 3-4 (it varies) per gas. So, if you are *only* mining at main and nat w/ gas, you should have about 55 peons. Normally you will then take another expansion (min only) and you'll need more. All said and told, if you create about 70ish total peons throughout the game, you'll be fine.

At least, that is what I've heard. Keep in mind, if your min line gets dropped and you lose 20, you'll need to make more - so you cannot put an EXACT number of workers to make each game. But 3 per patch is a good rule.

55 is way too many for main base only.
So, if what you're saying is true(assuming 99% maps have 8 minerals, 1 gas to start w/)
8 x 3 = 24 + 3 (gas) = it comes out as 27, which doesn't equal to 55.

He said main and nat[ural expansion]. So his numbers are correct. I never get 3 per patch, though. More like 2,2567 (an estimative).

Oh, if so, then yes. I must've misread.

No, I don't play tournaments. I'm into it for the fun of playing with friends.

I was, in my time. 3 to 5 years ago. Not anymore, really :-/

We can play, but it won't be that hard for you.

Neat. Any notable accomplishments (clans, tournaments, ladder ratings)?

Yeah, I founded a clan (named Battle Order, BO) and won a couple tournaments of my country. Non-official ones, because, as I said, I'm not into it.

Portugal owned us :( Thanks a lot Tronga.

I'd play you, but you're still good enough to beat me :D

I think you even said Cort was good? Maybe it was somebody else. I remember renzokuken was also said by that someone to be really good.

No one would ever say Cort is good at SC. I could play blindfolded with my hands cut off and tied to a chair.. and I'd still own him :p

Yeah, you're probably right...

TrongaMonga, coRt, Renzokuken, and some others in the SC Forums. Lwek is probably very good too, but those I mentioned I know are very good (Especially Renzo, damn psi storm abusing aussie. :p) But in the majority, we have a lot of good players, just not a whole bunch of ''OMFG LEET'' players. But I think this forums SC Players just love to have fun, and not to win and kill everything. :)

DM said it.. and as I stated.. "no one" :D

I actually don't know. Let's put it this way.. if cort is as good at SC as he is at maintaining these forums, he'd be on me like a beggar on a dropped hotdog within the first five minutes, savagely ripping me apart. You know you love that analogy :p

Meh, coRt is the kind of guys that in an analogy only likes the first four letters.

Though, in SC, he's also good. I'll take it he's also quite rusty by now, since the last time we played melee was months ago.
