    Pvper's ( a hat tip to you)

    Been playing wow for about 4 years now and have never touched pvp. I started to pvp about a month now and I have to say I give you good pvper's out there a hat tip. Such quick thinking responding etc. Nuff said

    In SC you don't have to deal with a 1sec GCD. Here you need to constantly react to what the other player/team is doing, while in starcraft you focus a lot on getting your shit build and from time to time you check what your opponent is doing and adapt to it.

    2 different type of games, you can't really compare it.

    Bold is true for every competitive thing in the universe.

    Italic is why you're in Bronze league.

    Just saying, I don't play starcraft... But I'm fairly sure that in SC you can only react to what you have vision on. When you get your vision denied on an opponents base, you have no idea what he's building and you can't build counters for it until it's to late.

    So much this. PvP forced me to become not only a competent player, but one who uses efficient methods to control his character as well.

    Any RTS game isn't just based on scouting the enemy and adapting. The multi-tasking, macro, micro and APM is what makes those outstanding koreans or any pro for that matter insane at what they do.

    Some of the top notch PvPer's in WoW are pretty intense as well.

    Don't forget too, whatever you are doing that you are calling pvp probably isn't even in competitive form - like arena or RGBs, you are probably just doing regular BGs which most people don't even try that hard in (hence easy). But like everything in life, and wow - this is just a 'you get better with time' thing. Learning what needs to be interrupted and what is a fake cast - who the most important targets are.. stuff like that comes with time.

    A good SC player is checking on what his opponent is doing and is reacting to it while building and managing 3-4 bases at the same time, they often have a APM going well above 100-120, with the real pro's going closer to 200-300.

    Liez! Tanks backpedal all the time! But other than that, pvp did that to me too lol.
    Why is there no "Demonhunter" hero class yet? He was only the coolest hero in WC3. Get busy Blizzard.

    Been playing my hunter so long I don't even think about it. It's just a reaction, like a 2nd nature or something. I f'ing love it.
    "Druid must be boss, Hunter is just Drain-monkey.

    Hunter scatter this rogue.
    Hunter drain that priest.
    Hunter where is frost trap. Bad Hunter! No banana!
    Hunter where is flare? No flare, you get replaced by retarded warrior!"
