A lesson

When I was just starting my warcraft 3 career (btw it didn't last too long), I would occasionally hear or read about some super powerful tactic that is imba and a no-brainer and lets you win everything. So when I actually tried such a tactic and got brutally owned, I was very surprised.


W3 taught me that most of the time even a great advantage does not mean you can defeat another player simply by somehow using it. It means that if you are exactly the same skill as your opponent, you have a slightly bigger chance of winning.

Any hard-tought lessons like mine?

  13. I tried playing Dragon Age 2 but don't have the patience to mess about crafting runes and whatnot. RPG's are time consuming and overly complicated for my taste.

  14. All I remember learning from Warcraft III is to always protect your peons. I'd get wrecked by people who rushed to air units and flew behind my base before I had towers/bunkers ready.
