Video Description:
Hey folks,

Welcome back to brownbear's Summer of StarCraft! Today's episode two - tankivac, gimmicks, team games, and regionalization.

Apologies for a shorter video this week. I realized thirty minute videos maybe tough to watch for some folks, so I'm going to try weekly fifteen minute videos instead.

If you enjoyed this video, I'd love it if you followed me here and on Twitter and Facebook to receive regular content updates. The relevant links are below. Thank you and see you next time!

-- Regionalization (2:40)
-- Gimmicks (4:31)
-- Mine Drop Deep Dive (5:55)

-- Mechanics That Become More Gimmicky (10:35)
-- Tankivac (11:02)
-- Unintended Design in Brood War (13:36)
-- Mechanics That Become Less Gimmicky (14:05)

Recommended Readings (by others):
-- (Legacy’s impact on early game aggression)

Recommend Readings (by me):
-- (mechanics critical to strategic diversity in competitive rts)
-- (racial balance in competitive rts)
-- (protoss design)
-- (StarCraft II and Brood War belong to different genres)
-- (map design)
-- (matchmaking)
-- (starcraft broadcasting and the excellence of nation wars)

References: The list of references is too lengthy for YouTube. As a result, I hosted it on my website:

Effects, starcraft, sound effects, comparison, terran, marine, fail

I think Starcraft II is a step back in alot of things when compared to the good old brood war.

One of many things affecting the audience are the sound effects as i try to illustrate here. SCII sounds poor and uninteresting in comparison.

The original purpose of this video was just to practise Vegas :P

One thought I had while video editing: I wonder whether the barrier to entry for new players is intentionally high, in order to dissuade them from playing the ladder unless they really want to. I've noted before that StarCraft II incentivizes the ladder too much, and that new players would be better off spending a lot of time in the...

Hey folks,

I've been working on a large comparative analysis between my favorite RTS series, Age of Empires, and a game I've been playing a ton lately, StarCraft II. This is the first of (probably) two parts.

Production notes:
-- ELO ratings cited for launch of Age of Empires 3 based on community ladder which used the same ELO formula as Age of Empires 2 and sourced win / loss data from an Ensemble-provided API.

-- (interview with Ian Fischer)
-- (Age of Empires Scenario Design Toolkit)

A look at tank splash percentages prior to patch 1.1. Another video coming after patch to describe significance of the nerf.

Tank Splash Radius

Distance from Target
0 - 0.4687 distance from target = 100% damage
0.4687 - 0.7812 distance from target = 50% damage
0.7812 - 1.25 distance from target = 25% damage

Announcer Easter Eggs from StarCraft: Brood War (classic Starcraft or StarCraft Remastered). The original was released free by Blizzard and a Remastered (HD) version at a later date. When you click on any unit from your race, the unit announces a statement of acknowledgement with a few words. However, if you keep clicking on the unit, you can unlock Easter egg announcements from it. This applies to all units of the Protoss and Terran units. Zerg also has some, but not as interesting. Video shows all Easter eggs from the classic StarCraft: Brood War (recently released free). It should also be the same for the StarCraft: Remastered version.
