I've been trying some new strats today with humans, I modify and change it each time...
I dunno if you guys are doing something wrong or not, but there are plenty of ways to win with humans.
And for the guy who says the only way to win is knights and gryphons, the number of times Ive been beaten by knigths and gryphons alone is 0. There are plenty of different winning strategies that use every unit the humans have (except maybe the riflemen, riflemen are underpowered and overpriced)
You can use siege tanks in combo with your main army to kill expansions when your main is fighting theirs. Priests and sorceresses are extremely valuable backup for any force, and in some situations footmen are more valuable than knights. not to mention mortars for seige situations and gyrocoptors for harrassment and any combination of those, and thats not even considering all the plays you can make with heros involved with the army.
Thats just human, the race with the least variety in wc3.
I think maybe you're just suffering from lack of imagination or you should wait till you get better at the game before you judge it on how limited the strategies are.
Ok, so maybe there might be more than 2 ways to win with Human, but Starcraft, there were countless ways to win with each race.
In my opinion, Warcraft 3 is about your hero with backup units against your opponents hero with backup units. Nuff said.
Warcraft 3 is about your hero and backup units against the enemy hero and backup units...
Starcraft 3 is about your units against the enemy units...
Thats kinda the point of RTS :\
There werent countless ways to win in starcraft either, it just seems like more
because you've played it longer and know more strategies.
I'd rather spend hours cutting a giant sewer rat in the sewers in Neocron than play warcraft 3.
BORING GAME. Thank God I didn't buy it. Now that I think of it, I thought both warcraft 1 and 2 were both boring as well.
I do all of those, I take ideas from opponents/teammates. Sometimes i will back my forces with a priest or 5, or other times I will lay down some hindering effects using a Sorceress. i vary my strategy each time i play.
Makes you work harder than Counter Strike doesn't it?
I actually bought that game dirt cheap with my PC. I love the gun selection. Came across a few hackers already but nothing serious. I purchased it because partly because I had never played it and partly because I enjoy studying guns. I enjoy stats on things, Warcraft 3 or just things like cars, planes or guns but I hate guns used against real people.
I like the HK USP .45 pistol best. Pistols against autos is fun.
They gave me a free copy of No One Lives Forever with my GeForce4. Enjoying it immensely, though WC3 being a game of stats I enjoy it more.
I haven't played cs in quite a while. I don't really like the game.
CS gets old fast.
actually, it's playable with my 333 iMac w/256MB RAM. all video settings are at low, but it runs at a decent speed
They are only equal if I am playing StarCraft BroodWar
brood War was so much more fun than regular StarCraft...
Speaking of sewer rats, that reminds me of the MUDs I used to play. I used to run around and kill rats to level up as a newbie character .
Did anyone used to play MUDs or am I too old?
I don't know if I can pay $10 a month for a game. I assume MUDs are still free somewhere, heh.
