I can literally hear them saying that out loud as I read it lol
Does someone have the actual clip?

i cant imagine a silver ranked player doing multi pronged anything.
PANIC PANIC PANIC PANIC!!!!!!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
didnt know that protoss can make creep in silver
The image on the left looks familiar.
"But I clicked my mouse really fast and hit a bunch of keyboard keys and felt like I was Maru! I should've won!"
Also: TIL that TvP involves a spawning pool and creep.
the multi pronged attack wins, because of scan.
Man I've lost to this shit in Diamond.
Little dude really killed it at WESG.
A literal mother of god, tasteless.
The Saviour of Terran
It would've been a St. Patrick's Day comic, but WESG was on.
More Zerg shenanigans
Never skip tongue day.
i actually didnt know vipers abducted with their tongue. TIL
I love it
You found Starcraft too I see
I miss your Warframe comics and followed your tumblr for a while until life got too busy.
Vipers are gigantic scale wise.
This deserves more attention. Truly sucks having to play 1/4 games on opponent's Singapore/Australia/Brazil even though location and preferences are USWest....
its annoying for us aussies to get matched on eastern as well instead of western. i get eastern more western sadly
How did you get the stats?
I'm just amazed at the fact there are Aus/Nz pros at all anymore given the lack of decent ping the higher you go on ladder (NA + KR)
Regardless, that's not an issue that's screwing over NA players:
If the menu ping issue (where the client reads an incorrect, sometimes low or high ping to each server upon logging in) was fixed, then 1/10 games would be Aus/SG for NA players. If that.
It matches me to Singapore when I just try to play a custom melee vs ai to practice a build order. how does that make Fucking sense? I'm by myself lagging my balls off.
There should be more match making veto options with a warning about how much it will increase wait times.
E.g. I'd rather wait another 2 minutes than play the same person again, especially relavent in team games.
Would break the ranking system for people who live in Australia/Singapore/Brazil. They would have to work either more or less to get the same rank as people from North America, due to difference in gaming population.
This is what happened when SEA (South-east Asia) had their own server. Because gaming is still a bit of a niche in SEA, in the mid-leagues the players on SEA were more serious and it was harder to rank up. However once you got to Masters+, the player pool rapidly diminished due to the small player-base, which is where the meme of "GM on SEA" came from (people posting disproportionately many GM promotions from the SEA server). So your rank was pretty heavily skewed by the player's region. But since they were on their own server there was no like-for-like comparison possible. Now that SEA has merged with NA, a SEA player's rank can be compared directly to an NA person's rank, so it would be unfair for them to compete against a different player base.
There is NO POINT playing a match with 300 ping. It's so far off from a real game you can't really learn of have fun. Matching people in NA to Brazil, Aus, or Singapore makes zero sense to me.
Merging SEA with Americas was a great idea, what are you talking about? /s
AUSTRALIAN PING ABUSERS RUINING THE GAME
I live in Australia. Shouldn't I be able to play on my own server, and not on fucking North America?
Just set it to NA then
most people on those servers need to play against US residents that have great ping while having 200ms+ at minimum to maintain a high level of play, since playing only agaisnt an isolated server would probably lead to a skill decrease in that region (SEA back in the day). I know it sucks to get used to decent ping then getting faced with a delay your not used to, and 300ms is just way too much, but I'd say 250ms is playable if you get used to it. I know semi-pros from my country who have gotten GM in EU (similar MMR) despite having that bad of a ping.. it's a matter of getting used to, really. In the end, it's a necessary evil, mostly, but probably some ajustments can be made.
edit: out of curiosity, how bad is the ping from US playing on Brazil server?
First world problem
this is part of why i dont play this game anymore. really unpleasant to suddenly get matched into a 300 ping game. and i felt like it would only get worse as i got better.
Yeah totally agree with you on this, I get that there is not that many people to justify Blizzard making a server for each continent.
But can't we have a veto system like maps where you can veto servers that you don't want to play on?
Need server vetos.
wasted race spot, if he was any decent he would have declined the invite
As /u/TopherDoll pointed out, Geoff was participating in the anniversary FFA event so he could only start the achievement hunt super late.
Not a fan of CreepyOrlando I see.
Blizzard finally find a way to make destiny and others play Starcraft again
>blizzard used money
>it's very effective
> too effective...
Personally, for me, I'm swearing off all league of legends for 3 days...
his face when he finally gets to sleep
FRIEND RAYNOR saved the day at the end there, I wonder if he is ever going to go back and even see how he got that achievement.
EDIT: Here's the clip, looks like I was a bit sleepy too since it was mostly Artanis helping https://clips.twitch.tv/CovertFreezingAsteriskMVGame
Starcraft 2 got destroyed in that debate
I had 2 full sleeps all the while Destiny was slogging away getting 100% in HOTS and LOTV in 1 go.
Earlier in the week, Destiny said something like "Winning this will double my lifetime eSports winnings".
reposting from other thread:
It REALLY is quite remarkable and fascinating, actually. I realize some folks, especially in r/starcraft, have not been very fond of Destiny for quite a while possibly due to him "abandoning" the game we love but let's give him credit where it's due:
Almost 48 hours of non-stop game play. And at brutal difficulty level, at that. It's not like he is cruising through the missions. Even after 2 days he is still methodical and focused.
His mechanics have always been top notch. OK maybe not GSL level but still you can see how much it helps him to complete these missions.
He is still interacting with his fans. I appreciate that. And his community has been nothing but on full-support-mode. Small donations, encouraging (voice) messages. I enjoy watching him still interacting with his chats (he has 2, one Twitch and one his own website) and his chat helping him, guiding him and all.
He loves Starcraft, period. Very knowledgeable about the lore ranging from Broodwar story to LotV. It's quite enjoyable to hear him sharing his insight and opinions about the characters and scenarios.
Overall, this has has been great. I hope he wins, just for the pure dedication and competitive spirit he showcased last couple days.
His one shoutout after the win:https://clips.twitch.tv/HelpfulIncredulousSnoodOneHandHis twitter account got mass reported by fans of the alt-right people he debated.
Destiny at the top of /r/starcraft
Why be a king when you can be a GODSTINY
SLEEPSTINY Now boys
Gotta drive to pick up his son in 2 hours monkaS
I've never played StarCraft and I don't know who this is but I'm here from the front page to say nice headphones! 👌
When I went to sleep yesterday, he was over 30 hours in already. At that point he was far ahead, but if he went to sleep he would almost definitely lose. I can't believe he hung in for another 18 hours. This was an incredible feat of endurance.Congrats! Very deserved win.
DESTINY SAVING ESPORTS ONCE AGAIN
Got to give it the Blizzard the idea was brilliant and this is a fantastic way to get more viewers like myself back watching Starcraft and launching the game once again! I am sure it didn't exactly go as plan from supposedly lasting until the end of the month to being won 3 days later!
I hope they continue to put up little fun events like this!
Spoiler tag on winner thread, Destiny victory speech thread right below it.
lmao wonder who won...
I would love it if he'd play some more Starcraft after that.
I don't know how he can handle Starcraft on that little sleep. Holy crap.
The second coming of Jesus Christ
Yet another win in the marketplace of GODSTINY
OOTL who is destiny and why is he important?
what a god, this guy has a INSANE WILL POWER! Congrats DESTINY.
sorry but i cant resist post this https://img-9gag-fun.9cache.com/photo/3628686_460s.jpg
What was this sc20 thing you speak of?
I pretty sure Blizzard didn't expect anyone to use the "no life no sleep" strat. He really wanted that 10k
The chosen one
Crazy to think that 6 hours later we still don't have a 2nd.
Probably an unpopular opinion, but Blizzard should have limited the hours per day contestants could use for this contest. This is just unhealthy behaviour and sets a bad example.
what is SC20 achievement? what hunt? i saw few streamers with that text in title.
I wonder how long it would've taken without the liquipedia guide to missions open
Wonder who returned for that QUICK CASH GRAB /s
I am a bot. FAQ // code
Whats in the gif? It looks like a maggot wriggling.
Wow it must have been really exciting to watch. /s
So dumb. Lets give a guy who left the scene a shitton of money for grinding it out in 3 days. Bet he doesn't even stay around after a week

Oh god this is going to be the best kind of hell
I know that ffa maps arent supposed to be super serious but I like to think that the maps would be better if there were more open ground to punish airplay in ffa.
1 base carrier here I come!
I know some formless bearsloths who would like this map for ffas
I fucking love you
Fast drop LOL
Air distance to closest main is too short
Gold base in middle is impossible to take, therefore useless
Island bases. I like.
