@ftxcommando said in I cri everytim:
SC2 is one of the most stressful games out there with 100x FAF’s playerbase and an extremely large percentage focused around the 1v1 mode.
I wouldn't say SC2 is much more stressful than FAF, just much faster paced. Yeah, sure it's more stressful if you're trying to win tournaments for actual money, but that's just because of the money, which is because of the game's popularity, not that it's inherently stressful.
I don’t see it having much to do with FAF requiring a mega brain because you don’t need a mega brain to beat bad players, you can perfectly play ladder or dual gap casually with a beer in one hand.
Yeah, it's universally true of every game ever that it doesn't require a mega brain to beat bad players. Obviously, you just need to be better than your opponent. Good to know you ladder "perfectly" with just one hand. I'm sure that's not trolling at all!
This comes down to player expectation, cultural traditions, and player onboarding on FAF
It comes down to the tiny player base, and RTS style games not being very popular, particularly right now, and even if they were, there are a lot of things about other games that people prefer to FAF. Hell, even IF we assume SC2 is more stressful, you don't have to queue for an hour for a game, or deal with horrible simspeed and pathfinding. I don't think we can claim that FAF is less stressful and easier than SC2 and expect to convert many of those players.
I can't find the quote but long ago I read somewhere that TLO (SC2 pro gamer) said that forged alliance was more complicated and/or harder for most people to grasp than SC2, at least implying that it at least has a significantly steeper learning curve, but I cannot find that right now.
EDIT: QUOTE FOUND:
"When casting [FA] it's hard, because it's such a complex game compared to SC2...any idiot can understand SC2."
