But no other RTS seem to need that amount of micro AND macro AND mechanically perfect build orders AND timed scouting AND counterbuilding AND multitasking, and I could go on with the list but you get the idea. =/
Edit: Another thing is, neglecting any
of the listed, and unlisted areas means you lose, no way around it, simple as that, up to platinum league you can get away with doing them decently but diamond and above? You need to be as perfect as a machine in every area at the same time.
THIS IS MADNESS
