I truely sorry to hear that, LP.

Can you at least honor its ultimate sacrifice by rolling and smoking it?

I thought you were German, not Dutch.

Sorry, I just had to refer to the Toking-est Capital of the world, Amsterdam.  Is it just me or is legalizing marijuana a bad idea?  Hehe, all I know is that tourism has gone up in the Netherlands...  correlation?  I think so.

All I have to say is, my girlfriend is not only a gamer chick, but she's almost a bigger gaming geek than I am. we're putting in DSL next week, and she squealed with joy when the hardware showed up today.

Also, she keeps saying how nice it'll be to have a connection worth playing online games with. Jedi Knight 2, modified, in particular.

And, unlike most girls I've known, her only question when I told her I had preordered a dreamcast was "When can i play it?", and it's *her* fault I spent money I shouldn't have on a Gamecube.

Gamer chicks are the absolute BEST. Cherish them. Nuture them. And if some non-gamer chick wants to try out some game you've been playing, by all means, patiently teach her. Smiley You might be able to convert her.

I know we've just got a couple people making noises of disbelief that a girl'd be at all interested in games, and SC2 in particular, but I have to put in my 2 cents on the topic of girls and their ability to be sexily geeky on principle. I'm a man with a mission to promote equality of the sexes in the gaming world. Wink

Cause let's face it, when girls play games with us, we all win. Cheesy

Anyway, getting abck to the original topic, that's one of my favorite SC2 amusements-- Ship-throwing. i don't really do it to win, though. Just out of amusement. Another fun trick is to practice aiming with a Chmmr Whiplash, so you can throw small ships at planets.

the trick, of course, comes if your opponent is smart, and wipes out your zapsats in one of a few ways. The tactic fails *miserably* against a Thraddash Torch if the Chmmr is moving, for instance, and an Umgah Drone's primary will do a lot of damage if they're good, too. Plus the secondary, if I recall correctly, will stop a tractor whip cold.

Azzizi - spoken like a true Jedi - uh, Warrior, - no, GAMER!

I wish there were more than just a few girls interested in computer gaming. Usually it's very frustrating to even bring up the topic 'cause all THEY wanna do with a computer is check out the net or write eMails or whatever, if even!

Usually they just treat one like the geek one tries not to become (maybe too late?) - They just don't understand that gaming is a lot of fun. Okay, there's always interesting board-games and other stuff you can do with a woman, but...

Oh, Omni-Sama, I am a German, living about 2hrs away from the Netherlands, but I've only been there once during 10th grade (and that was a time when I didn't know yet what was good  Grin

I want to go to Amsterdam!

Gamer chicks are few and far between.  Let me tell you, I've met some butch gamer chicks who I thought were men and who probably could have kicked my ass.  So, I'm just saying the female gaming crowd is more... varied than the geeky, nerdy Star Control II-obssessive geek males.  (i.e. me.  Embarrassed )

What? I'm a 3 metre tall weightlifting champion with a black belt in Karate! How dare you call me a neerdy geek! I will break both your legs!! You shall be cleansed!!  Grin

One a more serious note, don't assume all gamers are nerdy. One can combine  aperfectly "normal" life with endless hours of SC2 (and this forum apparently) without ever giving away ones shameful secret....

Yes, you can torture me, erase my harddisk, but I will NEVER tell (nor surrender).

As for the original topic - I've always sucked in melee and little tricks like this are really helpful. Although I prefer the straightforward attack, guns blazing. If I die, so be it!
I'll be back  Cool

Indeed, the whiplash maneuver is a very good way of evening out some of the battles. As long as you don't whip yourself staright into a comet, and lose all that precious speed...

You're telling me.  Not that I'm trying to boast or anything, but I certainly don't spend the majority of my time wearing pens in my shirt or arranging my anime action figure collection.  I leave that to the amateurs.

Using the Mauler and the whip is the best tactic, but firing the wrong way can often kill all your speed.

Hot tip, don't ask them if they have any fresh Supox, or Mycon in butter. It tends to confuse ppl...

They might get the Mycon in Butter, actually. An order for Supox is just wrong -- and, fortunately, unlikely to go filled.
