Easy to play badly.
Hard to play well.

Whereas in WoW

Its easy to pick an OP class and do well even if you're shit.

You dont get into Diamond first 30 games ever without dropping when you just started playing rts games.

na he was diamond in s1

I doubt it was his first RTS though, when even RTS "gods" like Grubby find it hard to get into sc2 I doubt a random player who has never played a RTS game can do it with ease

sc2 definitely isn't that hard... if you practice consistently enough and you're not totally shit at rts games to begin with you can make it to masters in a few months

I mean, you can be a pro with 100 apm so yeah

why do people seem to think "easy to get into" and "easy to be good in a high league" are the same thing?

sc2 is a very easy game to start learning and enjoy, you dont have to be the best player in the world to get into the game.

that's because the sc2 ui is infinitely better than the sc1 ui so you don't have to get 300 apm carpal tunnel to do well

its not that hard to get into if you have ever played an rts before. but sc2 is a very economy based rts. at least in the higher levels where cheese isnt as prevalent. its also pretty entertaining to spectate sc2. i watch streams on teamliquid quite a bit and it helps me learn strategies. if you are sick of WoW then i would recommend sc2. but not all people catch on quickly so be prepared to practice many games.

Maybe its just me but I think if you're constantly having issues dealing with or losing to cheesy plays, then the issue is with you not preparing / scouting / just being good enough in general to deal with it. You can literally eliminate 99% of any cheesy plays by just scouting properly and not doing greedy builds, if you're not doing either of those things and you lose to a cheese its entirely your fault.

I never lost to a cheese and thought "wow theres nothing I can do about that", theres ALWAYS something you could've done to prevent it.
