Being that my goal is to learn to be efficient with each civ, thus helping me to better learn each civs strenghts/weaknesses and also countering.

I think what I'll do is play each civ for 20 games then go through each civ again with another 20 games. With 40 games played total with each civ this should help..

HHhhmmm .. :roll: and when the Patch comes out .. Back to the drawing board :oops:

Ugh I'm annoyed right now! I just beat a Chinese Captain (beat him so badly after the game he said "you aren't a 1st lieutenant, are you?") and atm my PR is exactly 24.97!!!!

I'm so close to Captain but not! And I just KNOW that after this I'll probably lose like 2 games and suddenly be back at 24.something. ><

It'll take you awhile to get your PR up significantly with team games, especially 3v3s...the more people in a game the fewer PR points you get for a win.

I'd be glad to be your 2v2 partner. I probably need to get my PR up a little for you to take me...

I wouldn't worry too much KK your a very good player ... Just watch out for your opponets win %
I found that this seems to be a greater factor in being able to predict your opponets playing ability, though I believe there is no sure way to predict an outcome because there are too many variables.

KK, I'm sure you can reach major level if you stop worrying about PR/elo/UP/OP/broken/lame/.... Try to enjoy the game a bit more and you will succeed.

Yea I'm sure you're right and I've known this for a while, but it's easier said than done.

The problem is I know that the key to getting a better rating is to stop caring enough about my rating to just go and play rated without worrying about ruining my current rating. But if I stop caring about my rating then I don't care enough to play rated. But If I care enough to really want to play rated, there's more risk involved in playing rated.

:P

Get the dilemma? Hahah.

I'm really not that crazy but it is kind of an interesting paradox.

Take your best civ (the one you know best, not the one you lame best) and go qs. Learn from your losses, view some recs once in a while for hard matchups, pr goes up.
