Getting Buff

by

We’ve been testing that special unit buff for a week now, and will be meeting sometime today or Monday to give it a thumbs up or down. Big thanks to our testers for providing your feedback on the beta boards. We don’t always have time to reply directly, but we do read through and consider everything. Keep an eye on your email, because we’ll be needing your help again very soon for something a bit more interesting.

King of the Unit Shuffle

Congratulations are in order for TheGreatErenan, who has conquered probably the craziest tournament idea you guys have come up with. In the Micro Strategic Starting Unit Tournament (TM), competitors dueled using starting units only. That’s right: perma-death for everyone involved. As you can see from watching a replay: this means LOTS of hopping around and fog of war manipulation.

TheGreatErenan mastered the art of the unit shuffle and came out on top, and for that we salute him.

“The top 5 got their choice of prizes. I came 6th. Fml.”
- Jo5hman, the Almost Not Quite the Best Tilt to Live Player on Earth*

Ladies & gentlemen, it has just come to our attention that we’ve left one of our winners unrecognized! We awarded prizes to the Best Tilt to Live Player on Earth* and Not Quite the Best Tilt to Live Players on Earth*, but in some wild lapse of judgment we failed to recognize the Almost Not Quite the Best Tilt to Live Player on Earth*. Congratulations, Jo5hman, for this impressive feat! You win a blog post in our Hall of Champions, commemorating your impressive title. You were mighty close to almost the top, and we salute you. Prize over.

In other news, I’m pleased to report that Becca’s faith in humanity remains intact! Jo5hman, you owe her a thank you for this post. In fact, if you don’t thank her WE’LL LOSE OUR FAITH IN HUMANITY. How do you like them apples?

The Best Tilt to Live Player on Earth*

And on this, the 27th day of August in the year of our Lord, 2011, a champion arose from the rabble of common men*. A hero forged from concentrated greatness*, his perfect* tilting wrists chiseled of some unbreakable mineral not heretofore cataloged by science. Wielding the maddest skills on the face of planet Earth*, he accepted our Game Center friend request and rode into iOS history. Let us never forget his name:
