Fantastic! Thanks for sharing the video, photos and replay with us, it was really exciting. For me this was the most rewarding thread on teamliquid for years (I dont mean because you used my map but what an honour that you did). Its fascinating seeing new players learn brood war, seeing things click in their minds as they work things out (with a few pointers from their teacher Im sure).
Im very impressed by their play. You can see over the course of the game, they suddenly grasp key concepts and jump up in skill level rapidly, or think of a cool plan and go put into action.
Some of the play was scarily like modern day macro monsters, I was shocked. In before one of your students wins ASL 15. There were so many funny moments, I enjoyed it way more than I probably should have lol.
Did you play a 1v7 in the end?
Everyone was Protoss, if you were to do it all again, would you have everyone as terran instead?
Maybe could change the start location minerals to be 5000 per patch.
Watching new players discover brood war, particularly those that havent played video games before is really awesome, and this thread has reignited my passion. Makes me think Im on the right path with making public domain games etc too.
Nice one Golgotha (and photographer), good stuff.
Lol yup. They got better as the game went on and were not satisfied with dragoons. I taught one kid basic carrier micro and he started wrecking everything.
We played 1v7 at the start, I was zerg and they were all protoss. that was fun but they don't like playing against me. They want me on their team or to not play. They hate facing me. =)
I taught them protoss because protoss units are beefy and it's an easy race to understand. Terran requires unsieiging, laying mines, medics, etc. Zerg concept of using larvae was a bit confusing for them as well. But I bet that after a couple of games where they are allowed to free roam the tech tree, they will be able to play zerg and terran without my help. The basic idea of gathering minerals and gas, and then building stuff to unlock units is pretty straight forward.
Glad it has helped you Jukado, thanks again.

Is that Stork on the slide Introduction to StarCraft? xD
Sorry to Stork fans, I did not include him =)
I also said some things that might be be blasphemous around these parts. Things like: "Jaedong is the best Zerg in the world and the 2nd greatest player in Starcraft history." hahaha

Be sure to teach them proper bm so that when they get on the ladder, they can start building turrets that spell the words "get out"
In Thai, the number 5 sounds like 'ha'. So if you ever see '55555555', those are my students.

Will you be able to stay in contact with the students? If I make a video cast of the replay, will you be able to forward it to them? I'll try to use simple English? Any recommendations for what I should include in the cast or not?
Haha, if you could make it funny and poke fun at them, they would love that. It's a bit hard to reach them since school is out for summer, but my school can help stay in contact with most of them. Thanks man.
By the way, I will contact you if I need help with something. Because something might happen and I might be able to do something BW related with the students again.
