So what would you say qualifies to be: a) Noob, b) Rookie, c) Intermediate Player
In my head Noob, someone really new to the game doesnt know build orders how to lure boars eat sheep one at a time, no hotkeys that kind of thing.
Rook, someone who understands how the mechanics of the game works. Again knows how to Boar lure, eat sheep one at a time, do few build orders basic counters. Game play is not polished but is getting there.
Intermediate: People who can pull off various strategies like Trush, Drush, FC etc. Have a good set of skills can hot key around everywhere numbers units and has a good grasp of the game. Can manage to build economy at the same time as commanding an attack on the enemy reasonable well.
The Pro: Basically a Robot in the flesh. Can do everything from the above, fight multiple battles and still boom and micro manage units, balance his economy for what they are producing and still have time to chat to their significant other without getting flustered!
( I think all Pros have sold their soul to the Devil! )
Do these sound about right? Im amazed at the amount of Noobs joining inter games. Do they not understand the skill levels or do they have inflated egos?
