Eh. It's just average in terms of strategy. Of course, in terms of modern RTS games it's fairly good, but it's still nothing special.

It just isn't though. It requires literally no strategy. If I can win by spamming Thors and pressing a and clicking the other side of the map, then there's literally no strategy involved.

Then you are not facing good opponents. A good opponent will see that and make cattlebruisers or carriers or brood lords and bet you. The game does require strategy but mechanics do play to big a role.

I wasn't being literal. I'm saying that if all it takes to be successful at modern day RTS is just spamming strong units and steam rolling the map, it utilizes as much strategical thinking as it takes people to figure out how to tie their shoe laces.

If you would want to debate this formally, I'd love to take you up on it.

Resolved: Starcraft 2 is a strategy-intensive computer game. You'd be pro and I'd be con.

but i agree with the op.

This thread isn't over until I've agreed with this statement.

Agreed.

Also, Zarandi, I'll debate that. Just define strategy-intensive.

Requiring a lot of strategical thinking? I mean, I would think it's a fairly obvious definition.

K, set it up. I'd prefer less than 5 rounds and less than 8,000 characters per, but whatever is fine with me.

I like the flexibility of 8k characters, though. but I will compromise here by making it three rounds, the first being acceptance. Is that good?

You know better than anyone that butt sex is for winners. Talk to me after the voting.

pfft. That's if you manage to build up that many thors. Furthermore, thors are expensive and require a lot of tech, chances are you'll get wrecked before.

Unless if you're playing noobs.

High-level Starcraft play is drastically different than, say, bronze league.
#UnbanTheMadman

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."
