I fuckin hate superspeedmetal

Post by js_leitch »

I have an idea. This might suck, but I want to try it: what if we play maps like superspeedmetal with a really really low max unit count? Like 20?

Yeah, it kind of defeats the purpose of SSM. But it could be interesting, tactically... since you can only build units when old ones die, you need to build your lab as close as possible to the action; you self-d your old lab when you tech, etc.

Maybe this is a terrible idea. But maybe it'll be fun. If someone wants to try, let me know...

SSM is a map for people with no interest in RTS gaming

I know... am I trying to salvage an unsalvageable thing?

If you don't like it, don't play it. And yes, it is unsalvageable.

And tbh this thread is ready to be locked. No one cares about your hate for speedmetal, just keep your hate inside your own head. ;>

Out of idle curiosity, how is it different from vanilla speedmetal? Special buidlings or something?

OK, I tried it a few times, it didn't work at all. Bad idea. SSM is truly and irreversibly the domain of people who don't have time to think about such silly things as "strategy". Somebody make this thread go away now...

Someone should try making a superspeedmetalx2 with twice the metal as regular superspeedmetal so you can build stuff faster. The game would play really fast and you can have big battles.

YES! Now that's the kind of forward-thinking we need! Oh, woe that I did not think of this myself...

Lol ... I never played on any map of this kind and don't intend to, so I wonder what's all the fuss about :mrgreen:

SSM is plenty of fun and also shows you how to have efficient nano/factory combinations.

It is only fun when your strategical abilities are impaired, such as when you are drunk.
