Starcraft 2, more like Starcraft POO

So, like everyone else in this world, I've been playing Starcraft 2 like a crack fiend smoking crack, since its release and I've been managing to get by on old school SC:BW strats, so uh, gg?

Whenever I play games after a long hiatus, I find it amusing to see how many people are still bad at a game. Sometimes, people are even worse than I remember.

Since this post is about Starcraft 2, we'll use it as our example. Back in SC:BW, we had Koreans EVERYWHERE, dominating the ladder and regular UMS melee maps. And they were scary. Now, since people are unable to select which server to log in on, my lovely North American server is filled with just that, North Americans, and that my friends, isn't as scary. It is however, very annoying. Everyone and their mother cheeses, it's like a daily trip to the dairy farm. Reaper rushes, mass marines, 8 pools, 2gate zealot pushes, dear God the madness!

Don't get me wrong, I don't LOSE to these cheeses, but it's just annoying to have to deal with. Why can't we bring back the good ole days of maxing out supply then going to all-out war? Good times.

Also Reapers, dear God are they stupid. Back in Beta, when the upgrades were 100/100, it wasn't as bad, but now the upgrade is 50/50 and you can get them sub-5 minutes? Simply ridiculous. One reaper 2-3 shots a worker, and they get bonus damage to buildings? Sure the 1.1 patch made the delay 5 seconds longer, but they're still vexing. Lately, I've been playing a few games where people go mass reapers, I don't understand people sometimes.

Bring back dragoons. GG nore.
