You guys should try Starcraft, because if you suck in most strategy games you can play UMS maps (User map settings)!
starcraft>god himself.
um, Julmurl, I <3 SC ;D
*awesome strategy as Terran, use science vessles to shield dropships full of medics and marines, send the shilded ships into middle of base, and unleash hell.  Use stimpack and medics heal. works 9/10 times.

I finally picked up Guild Wars again. Looks like they fixed it up a bit since I last played. I might even get Factions if the game remains fun for a while. I don't know, thought... Last time, when I got towards the end of the game and it forced me to start grouping with real people, it started to become a hassle. GW seemed to have the absolute worst player base in any game I've ever played. As in, worse than Counter-Strike and Starcraft put together. Also, a lot of the people I met were hyper-competitive. Lots of people would give out bad advice on purpose, hoping to give themselves a small advantage over everyone else. It just seemed like there was way too much competition and no cooperation.

But who knows. I'll give it another shot and see how it goes. Anyone else currently active? I have a 20 W/Mo that's ready for PvP, and I'm just starting a Mo/Me that's in pre-searing right now.

i used to play brood war, but the disk got wtfpwnt by a paper clip(please don't ask) so now i play regular. :P
UGHHHH, i hate ling rushes.  Especially because i always use terran.  I always start off poorly as terran cuz i let my minerals build up, so i'd have 4 marines and 800 minerals :(.  But if a survived long enough, i smoosh them :D.  I used to team up with a clan buddy(clan MM, i was like the third person to join ;D)his name was lorddrj2003 or something and he'd make battle cruisers and i'd spam seige tanks and we'd attack one guy at a time.  It was fun.

Anyone remember those little rectangle shaped discs?


Yeah, I put one of those in an iMac once. Paperclips didn't help there either.
It was a school computer though, so who cares :P

Just a warning, factions is a waste of money if you aren't in a large and active guild as all the new content is basically aimed at the large guilds and new alliance thing. On the topic of GW, they annouced a new expansion today.

First time I played starcraft at my friends house like 5 years ago, then last year I brought it from my friend, but now I like playing UMS map more than 5 years ago.
