Challenge games? (Ship changing ideas)
« on: April 06, 2005, 11:23:19 pm »

Hi all. I've been lurking these forums for a while, and playing SC2 for a long while too.

Though I love SC2, I find that it gets a little easy after you've learned a few of the basics, like rainbow world locations. In fact, I'd go so far as to say it's stupidly easy if you ever use spathi eluders / a powered up vindicator. As such I'm asking this question:

Do you have any 'challenge game' rules that you can set up for yourself to make the game harder?

Thanks,
~Ad
ps. I tried 'no eluders, no vindicator' and had a good time beating the game. Now I'm trying 'don't ever land at the starbase' by FalconMWC's suggestion, but so far have had a *lot* of difficulty beating those space probes.

For my next SC hit I'm thinking of toying around with which ship is which, in order to both remove my ability to use spathi discriminators (which I'm sick to DEATH of using now.), and to make the enemy use some ships with speed.

I've figured:

Discriminator - Broodhome
Cruiser - Penetrator
Torch - Guardian
Jugger - Terminator
Terminator - Fury
Fury - Avenger
Blade - Torch
Skiff - Blade
Avenger - X-form
Drone - Scout (god only knows how many crew I'll lose fighting 10 of those)
Intruder - Discriminator

Anyone got any other ideas?

Hm. You never used the Nemesis much, did you? I've put "Don't use X Ship" rules on myself, but usually that just forces me into depending on one of the other crazy powerfuls.

Let's see... How about using the Pkunk Fury to fight all your battles? Wait. Umgah, VUX limpets, Ilwrath, Yehat. Uh, nevermind.
