Either this is sarcasm or you don't play BA? Few games link economy, resources and Intel so intrinsically to victory: try playing comet from your starting 3 mass points while letting your opponent have map control.smoth wrote: biggest threat because they have the most metal? that seems silly.
There is an undeniable correlation between metal and victory, checking my last 20 replays in 17 of them the winning team "coincidentally" spent the most metal, and the two which didn’t were small fast-paced 1v1s where flash tanks decided the outcome before t2 could even come into play.
In addition there is no such thing as an “arbitrary score,” unless the scoreboard simply shows numbers at random. Tactical information is being forfeited for free and personally all I can see this doing is subtracting from the gameplay (regardless how insignificantly).
