Presentation:My Favorite PC Game

英语课的presentation, 一样写了不如一并贴在这里吧.

Hello everyone. First of all, I should say sorry to some of you , especially the ladies. Because you may not be very interested in what I am going to say next. My topic toady is  “my favorite PC game” named starcraft.  I’ll try to make this topic as easy as possible and I promise it won’t be too many terms. Near the end I’ll answer the questions but if you don’t understand something I am talking about, you can just shout.

OK, let’s get started.

If you are a boy and you are generation 80’s, you probably play this game before or at least heard its name, right? And if not? I have to say that you are such a good boy,but your life is miserable.

Starcraft presented by Blizzard Entertainment Company, a very famous one. It also presented many other classic games, such as diablo, warcraft and world of warcraft. If you heard none of these, i still have an idea to impress you, just imagine how great impact Microsoft had done on the software industry,and Blizzard just do the same in the field of PC game.

Nowadays this game has almost been abandoned in China. But it still very popular in Korea. you can hardly imagine how crazy the Korean like this game.Beacause the government supported the game industry, they have their own game stars, game leagues, when the final matches come, people rushed into in the stadium, even spectacular than the football game. These players earn a living on it, they have been called pro gamers. One of the famous one named ‘Slayer’_Boxer, his annual income is around 220,000rmb,exclude his advertisement incomes. When the e-sport wasn’t so strictly forbidden before, CCTV 5 has once made an interview to a korea game agent and asked:”what do your people regard of Boxer?” He answered: “Though it cannot be compared in such a simple way, Boxer is warmly welcomed in Korea  just like Yao in your country.

And do you know Berkeley University? It has set starcraft as their elective course. They suppose that will do good for the students, training them to think logical and reasonable in limited time.

Let’s switch back to the game itself.

Blizzard made all its games with a major priciple: easy to learn, hard to master. Starcraft is an excellent example. It has only three races, you just pick one and start playing. Each race have serval units and buidings, the number of these units and buidings isn’t large, about ten to twenty, all very unique and you won’t have any difficulties to remember them after playing serveral rounds. But even as it prevailed for more than ten years, people still argued which race is the best, no one can be considered as the strongest. That’s called hard to master.

To play starcaft well you need focus on three major factors : macro, micro, mind.

Macro. When the game started, first you should gather resource, or we can simply call it money, use these money you can either build up your army or develop your economy, you shouldn’t emphasis too much on either side. How to keep the balance between your economy and military force is called macro.

Micro. Something about your controlling skill. Use your unit to do more harm to your enemy. (Draw a map and explain). There is another term to measure your micro, apm , means actions per minute, the pro gamers’ average level is 240-300, that  indicates they hit the keyboard and click the mouse  4 time per second!  It is said the human’s limitation is 600apm, is that really a human?10 times per second, you can have a try.

Mind. Too complicated,I don’t want expand this part, just give you a very simple example. Zealot, a very powerful unit. Weakness? Cannot attack against the air and walks a little bit slow. How to eliminate him?Use your air force and do hit and run? Do you know hit and run? Pick a fast speed unit, attack you enemy and run away, since you flee faster, your enemy cannot catch you. Then you go back and do it again.

Why I choose starcraft as my topic, not only because it’s my favorite game but also because it has improved my English. I’ll share a story.

Starcraft has a subtitle–“brood war”, it means 母巢之战, but because of the carelessness, we all take it for granted that the subtitle is blood war , since brood and blood are vey similar. Then its meaning changed into 血战, which seems more suitable for this war game. When I finally realize it, I laughed at myself how could such a apparent mistake not been found for so long.

This game has consumed my life, but I still think it worth it. There are two very popular saying in the starcraft forum and I’d like to combine them as my ending. Beyond the game, we cannot play starcraft forever, but we could be friends forever.

ok, I am done, any questions will be welcomed, though I prefer none.

星际赛事推荐:UpMagiC(T) vs EffOrt(Z)


up上手家中8bb,飘出后造兵,大大缩短进攻的路线。赞,我就从来没想到过。effort的农民侦查也很到位,一看up家里什么也没有,马上晃一圈,正好看到飘出去的bb,于是拉农民协防。up再放招,在一个很妖娆的位置野vf。这次effort就太假了,农民往那里直走,连野vf的农民都差点喷掉,我仿佛依稀看到了当年的马本。up的vf造好补了一辆雷车,骚扰;vf飞起到高地,又补一雷车,骚扰;vf再飞起到低地,还是补雷车,骚扰。看得人真无语,骚成这样实在不容易啊。effort更不容易,三辆雷车一一化解,只损失一些狗和两三个农民。换成其他zerg选手,这一连招吃下来,家里应该就不剩什么了。up在干吗呢?继续大招,一边出第二辆雷车的时候一边就在家里vs出隐飞,但还是被effort及时出现的刺蛇挡住,损失一农民一宿主。up家里开出内双矿,补了两bb,开始正常打。effort这里牺牲一个宿主,侦查一遍up老家后也开始正常发展。一会蓄出一波飞龙,up家中防空塔林立,防守很到位,飞龙无所斩获。up继续寻找战机,运输机空投,兵刚放下,运输机 就被自杀盯梢,成功撞掉,今天一定是马本附体了。effort的开矿和兵种转换也很及时,up枪兵压在effort三矿处时,地堡刚刚好,这个timing令人无语。然后lucker hold住,几乎吃掉up整队枪兵。中场僵持时,up终于出现重大失误,不知道是在双线操作,还是在家中运营,又是一个整队的枪兵护士,在面对小狗,lucker包夹时,不扎针不撤退,lucker的排刺后,尸横遍野。这时effoer还抽空表演了一下作弊般的开图操作,两个自杀在up家里随便晃晃就晃到机场旁边,又非常随意的把up宝贵的科技球撞掉了,这不是作弊是什么。。。?至此effort占据主动,扎爆up后门中立建筑,up的侦查也很及时,发现了effort在后门处蠢蠢欲动的兵力,马上调兵防守。然后,最精彩的一幕出现了,effort调虎离山后,一队lucker,两队狗,排着整齐的队形,正面强突!up的防守阵线瞬间崩溃。家中救火,自顾不暇时,effort再续一队多狗后门进攻,废掉up的内双矿。up无力回天,gg。


  • 农民侦查发现飘兵营8bb战术
  • 农民逛街发现野vf战术
  • 挡下三辆雷车。第一辆,建筑学加及时补出的地堡挡其在家门外;第二辆,小狗逼入高地死角围死;第三辆,意图识破,刺蛇加小狗打死
  • 以一农民一宿主代价挡下隐飞的突袭
  • 三矿处防御体系以极强的timing完成
  • lucker诈骗
  • 阻击运输机
  • 撞死科技球(这个很假,运气肯定也是有一点的)
  • 最后一波进攻,调虎离山,以排山倒海之势攻破人族防线,几乎是瞬间的,z v t中这样的场景太少了。



Game 3: UpMagiC(T) < Neo Medusa > EffOrt(Z)

up 的大招不断,家里8BB飘出去,野VF雷车,VF飘三矿雷车,又飘到主矿雷车,VS蕾丝,少芬的侦查很到位,全部侦查到,而且拉农民,造狗,补地堡,出口 水防的很精彩。up家里转双矿sk,bt码的很好,少芬飞龙没占到便宜,四矿转出lurker。up的空投被少芬防下,正面的枪兵不是中了lurker的 陷阱就是被lurker+狗包掉,刚出的科学球被少芬两个自杀精彩的抓timing爆掉。少芬暴大量lurker+狗,开5 6矿。up侦查到少芬打爆自己家后方的中立建筑,却不料少芬正面突然强冲,同时两队狗从后门杀入,up难以抵挡,gg。(强烈推荐!)


Holy World, z v p自爆人战术!

小零今天太牛X了,又或者说运气太好,在Holy World这张特殊的地图上(有中立的人族基地)使出了惊天地、泣鬼神,天地为之变色,日月为之失辉的z v p自爆人战术。我看下来,感觉kal的暴兵,运营,兵力衔接一如既往的强,可是自爆人往那一站,任你千军万马也不敢动。。。xx真是比浮云还浮云,炮台简直贱的无以复加。正如小零赛后所言, z v p自爆人战术即使他不用早晚有人会用,这个战术还不完善,而p的应对就更不完善了,所以我觉得现在远不是谈论地图是否平衡的问题,这个新战术现在看来是有奇效的。
