Well. To start with, a little basic information:

I am a female, sixteen years old, and I live in this little (Not so little, really,) country called Argentina, which is located at the southern tip of South America. I play StarCraft BroodWar, and I have a tiny knowledge of mapping (tiny with most people as a reference, in actuality, I never made a regular-working map, but this is simply because the triggers and conditions didn't satisfy my expectations, of course, when I found out about EUD, this changed,) I started to play when I was about ten years old, and I used to always lose against the computer, I didn't even have an internet connection at the time. I stopped playing when I was 11, for I moved away from my father, and his computer, which I used.. I began playing again four months ago, so some noobishness is to be expected, yet, I know what I am doing, I can macro, rush and stuff like that.

My name is xKanade (Internetwise, including Battle.net) and Danielle, in reality, also known as the real world.

My only project is to "revive" Phantom maps, which seem to have lost popularity. I found out about them a few weeks ago, and I was fascinated with the concept, and puzzled about the little amount of people that actually play it. I normally host games on the US West gateway, normally at night (here,) let's say.. From 9 pm (GMT) to 11 pm (GMT, too) and then from 3 am to 4 am. It's a long time, I know, I can only manage it because I'm a nocturnal person xD. I'll try to spend as much time as I can, here in the forum, but that will vary, for I do a lot of things with my time (Mostly sleeping. xD)

My hobbies are:
Chatting around all day like a lazy.. Like a lazy person.
Sleeping.
Playing Chess.
(I'm sure you don't really care about this. I don't know why I'm writing it.)
Playing StarCraft.
Mapping like a noob. o:
Photoshopping stuff.

Well, to keep this brief, I bid you farewell~

If you revive Phantom, props to you. Some of the guys here have a bad history with the game as it used to be played multiple times a night at our (currently dormant) Map Night sessions.

Welcome to SEN.

Welcome to SEN.

Very much thank you, good sir, and I just like the concept because it reminds me of a card game I used to play, one called the Mafia. But now you've made curious. I mean, what a ghost appeared to them or something? Or were they just annoyed because everyone was playing the game and they didn't like it? :S

Oh and Phantom sucks. I will join any phantom games hosted and personally ban the host.

NOT PHANTOM

Quote from KrayZee
Phantom is hosted at least once every Friday night then it's map night is over. If Phantom turned out to be a disaster through Centreri's eyes, he immediately hosts for Uberana that also turned into a disaster depending what went on.

Phantom is just played way too much, not only others enjoy it everyday but dragging it onto map night certainly killed the purpose of map night.

Quote from Centreri
Phantom rocks your (and my) socks.


Good times.

Welcome! The UMS community is pretty dead on US West, you're better off trying US East. If you're learning melee 1v1 then add me on ICCup, sB.Birdie. I'm also learning to melee.

Show them your butt, and when you do, slap it so it creates a sound akin to a chorus of screaming spider monkeys flogging a chime with cacti. Only then can you find your destiny at the tip of the shaft.

There is actually a map called mafia that I believe is a derivative work of the card game/forum game. Maybe. If I'm thinking of the right card game. The forum game came from the irl game I THINK.

Oh, and welcome to SEN.

Welcome!
Reviving old maps is the first step in learning how to map, really. You look at what people have done and you try to improve on it.
It is rare to see newcomers still mapping for SC1. If you need any help, just ask in the mapmaking assistance thread.
Also, you photoshop, :D that's good.

I come back from my deep REM sleep to find all this! Well, first of all, thank you all, even if only for caring enough to post.

To be honest, I'd rather not 1v1 anyone, until I polish my rushing skills, for most people use them, and while I don't find it fun, it'd be worse than boring if I don't do it. I'll try US East, then, it doesn't really make a difference respecting to latency, really, since I'm so far away.

It is, since I learn a lot by simply reading and understanding people's triggers. Thanks, and thanks again. xD

@Melee: Rushes will only get you so far; they can be countered, and then... Then you're in trouble... (Of course, you can't wait too long, either... >.> That's... Why Jack keeps beating me... I time my attacks wrong and he either has many Zealots and Dragoons and stuff, or I'm already dead. >.> ) I mean, rushes are sometimes important, but there are other things you'll need to learn that are probably more important... Uhm... I think? I'm not good at melee... But... This is what I've observed from my own games... ...If that counts for anything...

Also, uhm... Hi...

EDIT: Also... My literature teacher has... An unusual running joke about Argentinian midget wrestlers... It involves a tea set and a battleship but I can't quite recall it. Just... You mentioned Argentina...

Yeah that's why I suck at melee. x..x .. I don't know about.. Midget wrestlers.. But if it makes you happy.. xD Hello anyways.

May 22 2012, 5:52 pm Biophysicist Post #19



I suck at melee too. :P The only person I can reliably beat is my friend Aaron who, among other things, finds Siege Tanks boring, considers having more than eight SCVs per base "too many" (because there are typically eight mineral patches, iirc), uses Firebats instead of Marines because they're "cooler", and thinks that lifting everything in case of attack is a viable strategy if he has a bunker. ...His P play is even worse, and the one time he tried Zerg he, well... Didn't build any extra Hatcheries for the entire (short) game. ...But I haven't managed to beat anyone else, ever, iirc. :P

...The midget wrestlers thing is just... Odd. But most people I know are. >.> ...Including, well... Me.

More importantly than anything these people have to say, DO YOU KNOW HOW TO TANGO!?!?! If you're from Argentina and don't know how to tango I might explode.
