I am pretty sure that move time indeed is very determining for one's level of skill.
When I play 70 games in an hour I tend up losing the majority of those over the last few weeks.
While actually regardless of the opposition I haven't lost a single realtime game 1vs1,2vs2 and/or 3vs3 yet. This being a total of 20 games.
skill as a function of time >>> you asked about a time being good. i ask: are you good?
bad players tend to think less (when they should think more) and/or think more (when they should think less) and/or make fewer orders and/or communicate less in team games (when they should talk more) and/or communicate more (when they shouldn't)...so how does that influence your speed?
From my experience, I think [WM] Dead Piggy simply don't know how to create multi-day game, and use only real-time games to play on the multi-day pace. Silly [WM] Dead Piggy.
So I'm surprised it's below 3 min.
we all do that. maybe gnuff does it less often? piggy being slow as molasses was based on my games with him and enduring long tortuous waits again and again. i can imagine a gnuff vs piggy game: gnuff plays 6 games at once while piggy plays 1.
so this is the question: is gnuff better bc he can think about more factors in less time? or is piggy better because he can think about more factors in more time?
Regardless of whether Gnuffone or Piggy is the better player in 1vs1 strat because of time, overall Gnuffone is the better player because not only does he know how to play multiple kinds of maps but he's also a great team player.
Actually Gnuff has been DESTROYING me in real time 1v1s this week. Meanwhile on his home turf (europe NC 3v3) with 3 alts per side I have a higher win rate. It seems like I am better at europe than 1v1.
I am very slow, I am also very good, myhand is very slow, he is also very good.
Maybe you guys should try taking your time, and see what happens?
gnuff plays the opponent more than the map sometimes. and you can be rather predictable with your deployments and moves. so he should do better at 1v1 me over time. with 3v3 eu he is like a homerun hitter whose batting average is a bit low bc he has a hole in his swing. you are more efficient with your orders. so i'm not surprised by that either: add more variables to the mix and gnuff will give you openings.
Yes, he has gotten good at guessing me over the past 50 games, but it is more complicated than that. He plays the middle game very well, by making turns that counter all my best options (but are bad against my average options). In my mind he is similar to timi, but better. I would be very interested to see him play against someone good anonymously. In predicting me he has become predictable though, and so we have started playing cat and mouse.
What would you say the hole is? I think it is not always being able to see the best positional move.
