6 "poll" rush
« on: November 17, 2011, 11:47:20 pm »
For some reasons, zerglings rushed into the forum poll system a few days ago, causing it to break and preventing anyone from being able to create anymore new surveys in new or existing topics. Basically, when creating a new survey, it would simply give an error. Thanks to Netham45, this has now been fixed.

For some reasons, the forums are running extremely slow at times right now, though, so Netham45 will have to look into that.

Also, on a less calculator nor community-related note, Omnimaga has revived the old Starcraft tournaments that we attempted to start in 2006, but failed to continue them because I lost internet access at home afterward. This is not a show-your-skills-style tournament, but rather something between Omnimaga users to have fun. Since it started over a week ago and is on a trial run, no more participants are being accepted, but you'll be able to see the results of all games played between 4 Omnimaga members in this thread, as the tournament heads towards the December 1st deadline. We do hope that the remaining 5 games won't all be 6 pool rushes. :P

UPDATE (Nov 18th): Our Facebook page has now reached 100 likes!

A 6 pool rush is when you start mining minerals until you reach 200, then immediately start building a spawning pool (to produce zerglings) before even building a single drone. This lets you get a small army of zerglings to attack the enemy around 3 minutes into the game, but if it fails, then your economy is crippled. In Starcraft 1, you started with 4 drones, so there the strategy was called 4 pool rush.

* epic7 lost

If your post was related to the game, then you must have lost too! Unless your reference to The Game was purely coincidental.

Actually Starcraft was like the most known/popular strategy game of all time back in the days. Even in 2008, 10 years after it came out, it was still one of the most popular online multiplayer game around. It's basically a real-time strategy game.
