Let’s watch that instant reply one more time

I’d like to address all these people that get all puffed up and what not over the “strategy” of rushing that people usually complain about.  A lot of people think this is a viable strategy, and I’m not going to say it isn’t.  But, I AM going to say it makes the game REALLY boring and irritating.  What’s the point of having all these units when all you do is create 2 barracks and a bunch of farms then send out a group of the first attacking units you can make 3-4 minutes into the game to end it?  How is this fun?  I can appreciate the fun in being a dick, BELIEVE ME, but even I give it a rest sometimes.

The “Save Replay” option in Warcraft has really given me insight AND PROOF into just how boring and annoying most of you are.  We played 3 games last night.  Only one of those games actually paired us up against people of the same skill level.  And that was a good game!  Not just because we won, but because it gave us a chance to attempt working together and trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t.  The other games just consisted of “higher level” people using the 2 barracks 5 farms strategy to end the game in 5 minutes.  Sure, it works, and you end up winning, but seriously, what the hell is the point?  How is that fun?

What I’d like to see are some replays of two teams of rushers going against each other.  I’m curious to see what it is when you play each other.  Maybe it’s a totally different game from what I’ve been seeing.  And maybe you just wipe out each others farms and then look confused when you’re standing in each others bases on opposite sides of the map.  I’m not a completely close-minded prick you see.  I’m willing to give you the benefit of the doubt that you’re all actually AMAZING DESKTOP GENERALS, and not just redundant idiots using a tried-and-true tired tactic from 2 sequels ago.
