Hello everyone and welcome to the official starcraft II strategy class! Here at official starcraft II strategy, we will be holding classes and coaching sessions of all levels all throughout the week to make sure there is something for everyone to learn; even the higher league folks.
Introduction: If you have never played Starcraft before, we would like to introduce to you the world of Starcraft! The game can be very intimidating and overwhelming at first, but anyone who has played the game consistently can tell you that you will get better with time and winning ladder games can be extremely satisfying.
Basics (Bronze and Silver): Everyone starts somewhere and personally when I first started I was placed in silver. With tips from forums and my own individual practice, I was able to reach Masters league fairly quickly. The most important part we can focus here are mechanics and macro. Once we have that down, the fun strategy portion begins! (You can't start playing Jimi Hendricks without learning a couple of basic chords!)
Fundamental Strategy (Gold-Platinum): After mechanics are strengthened, players will need to able to react and read their opponents. This portion will show the basics of how to scout effectively, how to react once you have figured out what your opponent is doing, and executing your game plan.
Fundamental Strategies II (Diamond League) Anyone who is in Diamond league can tell the leap to Masters league is a tough one. You may have the mechanics, you may have the correct strategies in your head, but you might not know how to pinpoint exactly what you are doing wrong or how your opponent is taking advantage of the situation. This is the area to tighten up your basics and fundamental strategies.
Advanced Strategy: (Masters and Grandmaster's) Your mechanics are good, your strategies are good, but like everything else in life, there is always something new to learn. In advanced strategies, we will break down professional play, learn to set up your strategies, and focus on specific ways on how you can improve your play (eg: Focus on better creep spread, harassing as protoss, etc.)
This is a large project and I am willing to organize all of this but I cannot do this on my own. I need a community to help me develop this into something special. Please let me know if you are interested and I can get started on scheduling, staffing, and getting this whole thing rolling!
Cryptic crosswords are an extension of standard ('quick') crosswords in which each clue consists of both a definition of the answer word and an indication of how to stitch other words together to get to it, kind of like lexical papercraft. See the Wikipedia page for a good example and analysis of a typical cryptic clue. If you enjoy wordplay, quick crosswords or word puzzles in general, chances are you'll love cryptic crosswords!
This course is for anyone who is baffled and bemused by cryptic crosswords but wishes not to be. Classes will focus on the different types of cryptic clue and solution techniques, with additional information for those interested in solving advanced crosswords or setting their own.
By the end of the course, you should have a firm grasp of the fundamental ideas behind cryptic crosswords, and be able to solve most of them with nothing more than some brainpower and a little tenacity.
