In my experience, following the meta watching the replays preforming the same t1 t1 t1 t1 t1 = uber (top tier) trying t2, trying com pushes,trying expanding, trying variety = silver/gold. This is from the exact same player, with way more games played in lower leagues. It seems, climbing to greater unit diversity = impossible. It seems, expanding = impossible. It seems though the potential for greater variety in games played we are limited by balance. I dont value micro, I dont value macro. What I do value is entertainment in thousand upon thousands of games played. I thought I could avoid the repetition of starcraft 2 by coming to pa, but it seems pa is limiting it self in entertainment and not using its unit base, and cool technologies, and epic game enders based off balance. 1v1's should have t2, orbitals, astroids, and annhilasors! Yet all you can use to make even high gold is t1 t1 t1! What a wasted potential.
