Making a micro guide[edit]

In example, results from the TL discussion on focus fire can be made in to an article http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=146177 but where would it go? --Ubershmekel 07:34, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

I just watched the vid and there's a huge flaw in it. The marines on the left lose because there's one Marine running around behind the Rine line. This has nothing to do with focus fire, it has to do with having one less Rine. If you create a situation in which all Marines are able to fire then focus-fire will make a huge difference. You mention "I dont have the apm to do this" - how about lowering the gamespeed? I dunno, I love e-science but it needs to be sound. Can you improve your experiment and get back to us?

I believe the marine was running around because of the focus fire (all the marines clumped to hit one front marine and blocked the path). I did run that experiment a few times and the results were predictable. If the battle starts out where all the marines can hit all the other marines, then focus fire would be good indeed - but this usually isn't the case in-game. --Ubershmekel 07:08, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
