DarthCaedus (no spaces) is my name, my code is 187.

I play WoL only.

Beware, my computer lags (it is several years old), and I am probably going to be in the bottom league once I do three more games.

Tons of good UMS games are what made me keep playing it for years.

Do you ever play HLD, or LotR hero wars?

What is HLD?

The games I mostly play (if/when I ever get on sc1, since I got a new comp that can play sc2 without lag that's what I've been doing) are RPs, RPGs, or just defense games like Ling D.

Heaven's Last Defense

it is a battle between hell and heaven, 5 vs 3 (heaven vs hell), hell has units spawn every so often, while heaven is restricted. Hell wins by destroying God's Throne (a nexus), heaven wins by killing Satan (mutalisk)

Heaven's Last Defense

I used to play it a long time ago, when it first came out.

I don't know about current versions, but Satan can't win if the person playing God is any good. That area in the mid left just gets packed with tanks and the mass dragoons/gols barricade the other entrances. Then the heroes doubly make that sure.

Games I used to play a lot that I no longer due (mostly due to the versions people want to play being bad)

-Desert Strike
-Custom Hero Wars
-Impossible Scenarios
-Undead (various versions)
-Spawn D

Sc1 is dying fast though. Constant games list hacks, less than 10,000 people on at any given time, bad games hosted, 90% of the players have hacks and just drop you on a whim, mass spam in channels and all the serious players went to sc2.

You don't like impossible scenarios, that is one of my favorites. But I agree about Desert Strike.

I haven't heard about the rest.

Anyway, if you are platinum, how come you only have a zealot portrait?

I don't like the current maps people play, or I've grown bored of what good ones there are.

But I agree about Desert Strike.

Desert Strike on sc1 is just a sc2 wannabe game.

It was the first league season and I have something like 23 or 24 wins and 4 or 5 losses. Not enough to unlock further portraits. Even if I had the others unlocked, I don't like how many of them look.

You mean you don't want a hybrid?

What do you mean, Desert Strike has been around longer than SC2

I don't like the current maps people play, or I've grown bored of what good ones there are.

Maybe the reason I am still interested is because I rarely find a game, so I get excited when I do find one. (there are a few games that don't apply)

Not in particular. I like how a few of the Protoss ones look, but not enough to play 1000 league matches or whatever.

Desert Strike vNight (the only one people play anymore and self proclaimed best version) was made when the SC2 beta came out. It has a bunch of units named with things from sc2 and tries to make their abilities through triggers or changing of hp/damage.

Last time I was on (a couple months ago), I saw mostly Silver or 2010.

Anyway, what time are you usually on?

Last time I was on (about a month and a half ago) I only saw the same few games being hosted over and over.

I have never seen any version of Desert Strike called Silver or 2010...what server do you play on?

Starcraft BW, I don't play much anymore. Starcraft 2 I get on randomly.
