    A few people at my school organized a RTS tournament, with Starcraft: Broodwars, Warcraft III, Age of Empires II, and possibly a Red Alert game (pending more copies of the game). The SC games will be 1vs1 on a random 2 or 4 person map. I used to be decent at melee games, but I started only playing UMS maps, and my "skills" went away..plus I haven't played in 6 months.

    So, if anyone has the time, could you please teach me some good tactics for SC? I'd like to win this section of the tournament.

    I'm pretty good at Starcraft stratogem, and I've read up a lot.

    First, pick a race, then I'll bust out. It's easier to start off learning with one race.

    We can play some games together too.

    I guess I'll go with Terran, since I think they're my weakest.


    Oh, and whenever I try to log on to US West, it says that I'm not recieving UDP Packets through Port 6112 or something like that, so all I can do is enter chats. East is fine, though. How do I get on West?

    Do you have a firewall? If so, allow 6112.

    Manage to do this into their supply line, you win.

    Have it shot down after spending all your time and resources teching to it; you lose.

    Fixed for you

    Nope, no firewall. Is it some preventative measure so that East-Siders (represent! :fistpump:) can't go on West?

    If it's a West-only thing then it's a Blizzard-side problem. I can play on East anyway though.

    Reaver drops never work any more, especially since he's going into a tournament with (presumably) experienced players.

    Starcraft uses UDP ports 6112-6119 for all battle.net-based games, they're not realm-specific.

    For going Terran, you want to be good at micro-management since they're the most demanding of the three races in this respect (spells like Lockdown and Irradiate can mean the difference between victory and defeat). Tell me when you wanna meet online.

    //edit: does anyone else in your house play Starcraft? that can be why you're having connection issues, trying to connect to the same realm at the same time through the same port, happens with my brother and I a lot

    I'll be on East for a while tonight, then. If you get a chance to come on that'd be great.

    What, no Total Annihilation? That's not RTS tournament.

    The way I played SC was build up a strong defense and harvest all resources fast, then build a strong airforce to fly over the strong defense set up and roast all the bases in one round of the map, entering the bases by the weak points.

    But then again, I sucked at SC.

    Sigh...I was playing a game with Haite, but it's been paused for half an hour or so. He had to "clean up"..at least he didn't have to go do his laundry.

    it seems like more people here play starcraft than warcraft 3. do we need a starcraft division in place of the warcraft 3 division?

    You could combine the two; the "*craft" division...although some people might interpret * as a star.

    we would need a starcraft division leader though... some one to organize stuff and recruit people. if anyone wants to head the starcraft division let me know, otherwise i don't think it's a good idea to start another division.
