ok here is the story, about 4 hours ago (7pm est) i started my final placement match. I'm playing as protoss and my oponent "Frag" is playing as terran. we both do an early rush and eventually trade bases within 5-10 minutes, my zealot force decimates everything on the map except for 1 factory that lifted off after taking a beating. 
 
i have 9 zealots left and 2 gates standing, he has the floating factory...he refuses to gg and surrender, and i sure as hell am not going to, so we have been locked into a standoff for over 4 hours now. i should just surrender and take the loss and the lower placement that comes with it, but now im in it for spite.  
 
went and had dinner, watched some tv, read some boards, watched some starcraft vids and im prepared to let this go all night, here is a screenshot of the epic starcraft 2 standoff of 2010

I would stand off too if my opponent did that. Good luck.

... I'm guessing you don't have any drones or the resources to build a stargate?

Ha ha. That's awesome, Starcraft 2 endurance match for the win.

GO FOR THE LONG HAUL! Or keep typing to him and try to get him to give up. Let him know hes lost.

Thats lame :(, but you really should have more stalkers :)

nope all i have left are 2 gates and 9 zealots, i tried to hide a drone as it was all going down but his last marine took it out and then i finished off everything he had on the ground except for the floating fortress of douchebagery

Just  hope your power does not go out.

I always wondered if a game of StarCraft could end in a draw...

#12 Posted by Jeffsekai (7052 posts) -
@evildeadron: Bliz should punch the other guy in the face for this.

This is like Dragon Ball Z! 
4 hours of just staring at each other!  
Exciting! 
 
Just be careful, if he goes "I have the high ground!" since, you know, he's in the air. You lose! :o

Hmm, someone's internet will fail at some point.

#16 Posted by evildeadron (830 posts) -

anyone else ever have something like this happen to them? my only comfort at this point is a) im laughing my ass off at how ridiculous this is (but im still holding my ground for spite), and b) i have kept him from playing more starcraft 2 for the past 4+ hours lol

You should blog about the entire story when it ends! It will be EPIC!  
 
Something between EPIC AWESOMENESS and EPIC FAILURE. ^^

#21 Posted by Levio (1786 posts) -

#22 Posted by evildeadron (830 posts) -

 

just checked in on my terran comrade, the standoff nears 5 hours, updated screenshot of his factory of never ending fuel 
 
#23 Edited by The_Laughing_Man (13629 posts) -

Post on the blizzard forums and let others know of his assness.  
 
 
Also. I plan to get the game soon. Care to teach me the Ins and outs of the multiplayer?  
 
Edit 
 
I can not get to battlenet!  
 
 
Also. Careful. He might be waiting till you leave long enough. Lands it and makes some guys. 

#24 Posted by Juvenfly (125 posts) -

I hope you're posting this on some official forums as well to let everybody know what a douchebag this guy is.  What was his name again?  And what league is he in?  I wanna know what the odds are I'll come across him.

Jeff has Spoken, you must win. 
 
Also make a real time forum post on the Bliz forums as well.
#35 Posted by ToadRunner (277 posts) -

this is retarded, just leave and keep playing.
 
it will be more fun to play a bunch of sc2 than to watch this screen just to get a win (which means nothing.)

#36 Posted by Mesklinite (814 posts) -

Haha, I beleive in you!

Jeff said not to give up. You cant give up now. Call him out on the blizzard forums! 
#41 Posted by evildeadron (830 posts) -

   @ evildeadron You should turn on voice chat and start sending him some "classic" hip-hop hits.
