Anyone want a free StarCraft 2 standee?

    I got this Standee from GameStop way back at the StarCraft 2 launch. Since I got a cat, Jim here has been hanging out in my closet and I just don't have room for him anymore. I'd hate to throw this Standee away since I don't think there are very many out there that didn't get partially destroyed by store staff.

    It's in pretty good shape, just a bit dusty. The logo has also succumbed to gravity over the years and popped off. Should be easy to stick it back on with some glue though.

    If anyone in the metro Detroit area is looking for something like this please reach out. Shipping is too much of a hassle so if you want it you gotta come get it.

Charted players' success in starleagues (more info inside)

    Bizarre decisions for this graph to be honest. What was your reasoning for putting points on the x axis and attempts on the y axis? I think the opposite would be more intuitive for the reader; the number of attempts is closer to the "independent" variable, while the number of points is closer to the "dependent" value.

    I'd also be more interested in seeing a log scale so that the cluster at the bottom left gets stretched out and the space at the top right doesn't get so wasted.

    Lastly, I'd be more interested in seeing "points per attempt" graphed against attempts, rather than seeing total points graphed against attempts.

    Still, there's some nice data here. We can see that the top left edge of the data clustered around the regression line seems to be the "gatekeepers", people who often make it to the ro32 but don't often make it further, like Keen. On the other hand, the bottom right edge of the cluster tends to be the players with very high peaks but shorter careers, like Life, Rain, and Mvp. And then the middle of the line reaching out to the top right are players with both longevity and a lot of wins, like Innovation, Stats, Classic, Maru, and Dark.

    This is kinda unreadable and the points system you made is arbitrary.

  • lpaperfriend
    7 points Nov 09,2019, 10:00am

    So if I'm understanding right, Maru has played in/tried to qualify for ~45 starleagues and scored ~300 points

    Whereas Innovation has tried for 29 and scored 230 points?

    It would be nice to have an average score/starleague. Just by eyeballing the data, I imagine that Inno must have the highest average score among those who played a lot of starleagues. Mvp and Dark look highly impressive too (no surprises there)

  • Eye_of_Anubis
    9 points Nov 09,2019, 9:50am

    On the y-axis you can see how many starleagues (GSL, OSL, SSL) a player played in or tried to qualify for (may be some small errors there).

    On the x-axis you can see how many points they gathered in their starleague appearances.

    1st place = 30 points, 2nd place = 15 points, 3-4 place = 10 points, 5-8 place = 7 points, 9-12 place = 4 points, 13-16 place = 3 points, 17-24 place = 2 points, 25-32 place = 1 point

    Fewer attempts should be more impressive. They even have the royal roader award for that.

    Curious how it would look then, Life/Rain/SK on top?

TIL the adept was present in the WOL collectors edition artbook

    Yup, the adept was them returning to that unit design.

    At the start of SCII they tested the idea of changing up the base tier 1 unit for each race. While we don't know the zerg one, the adept design we see here was the idea they had for protoss. Terran was going to get a lightly armored cybernetic infantry named the PIG (prison infantry guard) which were going to be massed criminals sent out to war:

    https://starcraft.fandom.com/wiki/Prison_infantry_guard

    The idea was mostly scrapped for versus though and they went with the iconic SC1 units for T1.

Flashback to the state of SC2 meme culture from 9 years ago

  • wssrfsh

    the cold is the void stalker meme is the best meme starcraft has ever seen but this one is a classic too :D

  • TannerMS
    142 points Nov 03,2019, 9:07am

    "Foxer" was one of many fan nicknames (I preferred Fauxer) for MarineKing in his first professional SC2 tournament (GSL Open 2) in October 2010.

    He was playing under the ID BoxeR as a tribute to https://liquipedia.net/starcraft2/BoxeR who confusingly made the top 4 of the same tournament.

    At a time when ZvT balance was finally becoming reasonable, 'Foxer' became the first micro king of SC2 by delivering tournament champion, Nestea, his only game losses in the tournament.

    MarineKing's matches against Kirix and Nestea left many young zergs (like me) super upset and angry about how overpowered marines seemed to be. MarineKing's proxy rax in this finals is imo the progenitor for all modern proxy rax cheese. I got to hold a real life party for this finals and translator John's speech at the end has always been very special to me.

    I used to love watching Foxer. I forget the name of the map but there was one match where he was just parade pushing with marines non stop against the Zerg. Just a straight up conga line across the map. Though then again, that was probably most of his matches.

  • etofok
    14 points Nov 03,2019, 10:26am

    Because bio Terran IS Marines. All the other units and their upgrades are supports for Marine mobility. Or mobility deniers for that matter.

    As you tech up as Terran you don't necessarily get stronger in raw power - you get more mobility tools, unlocking additional tools to prevent mobility from your opponent. And as the game progresses your (and your opponent's) domain gets more and more stretched out so you can actually leverage that mobility.

    Terran is brilliantly designed imo.

    At a time when ZvT balance was finally becoming reasonable, 'Foxer' became the first micro king of SC2 by delivering tournament champion, Nestea, his only game losses in the tournament.

    MarineKing's matches against Kirix and Nestea left many young zergs (like me) super upset and angry about how overpowered marines seemed to be. MarineKing's proxy rax in this finals is imo the progenitor for all modern proxy rax cheese. I got to hold a real life party for this finals and translator John's speech at the end has always been very special to me.

    MarineKing and IdrA are my all time favorite players, simply because they were a treat to watch for vastly different reasons.

    I used to love watching Foxer. I forget the name of the map but there was one match where he was just parade pushing with marines non stop against the Zerg. Just a straight up conga line across the map. Though then again, that was probably most of his matches.

    Does anyone have the GIF that is essentially this? I don't remember exactly but it has a handheld blackboard and takes place in a tent I think?

    4 marines walk into a bar and asks the bartender for the counter.

    Bartender says no counter.

    This but unironically

    Like seriously, everyone of those situations, I'm going marine heavy bio

  • etofok
    14 points Nov 03,2019, 10:26am

    Because bio Terran IS Marines. All the other units and their upgrades are supports for Marine mobility. Or mobility deniers for that matter.

    As you tech up as Terran you don't necessarily get stronger in raw power - you get more mobility tools, unlocking additional tools to prevent mobility from your opponent. And as the game progresses your (and your opponent's) domain gets more and more stretched out so you can actually leverage that mobility.

    Terran is brilliantly designed imo.

    Marines and Mines were one of the worst things to happen to the TvZ matchup. For a while, there was so much less variety just because Marines and Mines were so cheap, yet denied so much.

    There was one where someone tells Foxer that there is a resource called gas. He asks what is it for and they answer "making units that aren't marines" to which he says "interesting" or something like that. I laughed at this a lot.

    Those marine vs baneling splits were great. Haven't seen that for a while.

    I actually love the way he played those games, his micro during those times were unparallel. I still remember his games vs NaDa back then, it always ends up being base trades.

What is this white triangle mark on top of some units?

    Those triangles, as you amusingly put it, display that something is affected by the Oracle's revelation spell. Each affected unit, building (and rock) gives the caster of the spell (usually your opponent) vision of a small area around said affected entities.

  • Rusophycus

    They’re from the Oracle. The ability reveals your units to your opponent.

    Edit: Also reveals burrowed units.

  • -ArchitectOfThought-

    It means a flying pervey-boi has revelated them so the Protoss can resist getting sent to dick-town.

  • U-Hrair

    They've been revealed by an oracle. The protoss can see them through fog of war, and it also detects hidden units

  • tacitus42

    its worth noting also that the player who has been 'revelated' can also see the mark and is aware that they're being watched.
