I am starting to think what someone told me years ago about the first one is going to end up being the case with the second one. It sucks that really good players would stick around and play against new players or players that are not that good just for a win loss record. But what can you do.
I'm still up in the air with this but that is because I really want the single player part of the game. It does seem to be fun for me but I suck at it when it comes to the multiplayer.
I dont play 2v2 very often, but for me, I cant win unless I rush or do an early timing push. I cant play as fast late into the game as most because I play on a laptop. Need both hands to move around and click fast because I dont have a normal mouse + cant use hotkeys = cant keep up after 10+ minutes or so.
I can beat some pretty good people with just normal rushing and timing strategies. This being my first RTS that I have actually played more than a few games in I think I am doing pretty good. Started in Copper cause I didnt know what I was doing, moved up to Bronze, then just moved up to Silver yesterday. I am beating Golds/Plats on a consistent basis, and I don't even scout. I can win probably ~70% of my games just using Terran and doing a timing push with "The Ball". Proxy Zealot rushing works a high percentage of the time as well.
