Positive Playtesting.

Posted August 30th, 2010 at 01:41 PM by Chardar
It's no secret. The custom section is my home. Like any good custom maker I make customs because I want to play them. It's a waste of my time to create units that will never get played, it's a waste of the community's time to critique units that will never get played, and it's a waste of the site's limited space to post units that will never get played. So it's important to limit this waste.

Usually it's pretty easy to distingiush between a custom that has been well thought throught and tested and those that have... not. Most of the time if a unit is not well thought through, it won't get much attention from the general community. This isn't that they don't care. This means that your custom has an inherent flaw, and they are being polite by not pointing it out. Usually if you have waited a few days and have recieved no feedback on your unit it's time to revise your unit, repost it after you think it has been improved, and try again. Don't keep creating new, untested customs...

After realizing this I went back and reread some of my first posts. To be honest I was shocked. The question "did I really write that?" came up more times than I care to admit. I realize that this is normal, and every scaper has those moments at some point or another, but I can't help thinking that I could have done better. If I had known then what I know now I might have avoided those moments.

Of course there was also some excitement. The fact that I do know better and can avoid making those mistakes again. Maybe that's why there is a newb stage. Every post and response in that stage helps to...
