My life for hire

Well, I'm sure you guys know where I am in game now thanks to today's subject. I beat the last Zerg mission yesterday (or the day before maybe) not too long after I did I my blog post for the day. I'm already four or five missions in and I must say that the Protoss aren't as strong as I remember them being. Maybe it's just because I haven't gotten all of the awesome units yet or the upgrade tree is too sparse at this point to be very powerful I don't know. All I do know is that I could swear they kicked a lot more ass than this.

One thing hasn't changed though. The Protoss are still STUPID expensive to play. I nearly ran out of money in one of the missions because I kept buying scarabs for the reavers which then just went and fired three at a whack at zerglings instead of at the sunken colonies I was aiming at in the first place. If I click on the sunken colonies you KILL THE FUCKING SUNKEN COLONIES alright? I guess not actually, but I wish that was the case. Well, thanks for wasting 45 minerals per zergling killed you stupid reavers. And then there was that other thing I remember about the Protoss. Needing so damned much space to build your base because nearly every single upgrade for a unit requires another building.


This picture prettymuch sums up my feeling on pylons and the amount of additional ones required to do ANYTHING.

Since you're here and still reading this. Wait, are you still reading this? I sure hope so, anyhow... I'd like to make an informal poll of sorts here. For those of you who have AdSense, how high is your Page eCPM and where in your page do you put ads? I noticed that my eCPM dropped like crazy recently so I did some digging around to find out what might've caused that and I think it was the fact that I changed my ad layout recently. I thought adding the links at the top would have done something good, but apparently not so I went to a banner instead. Hopefully that'll help. I left most of the rest of the page the same though. So, just drop that in the reply box if you'd be so kind. Thanks.

  1. Protoss in SC1 was the most OP race you could play. Yeah, they're slow and expensive, but they have photon cannons and carriers. Best defense at the start and near unstoppable offense at the end.

  2. you can do it mate! ecpm is a projection that represents your estimated earnings for every 1000 impressions you receive. Effective CPM doesn't represent how much you have actually earned,
    it's calculated by dividing your estimated earnings by the number of page impressions, then multiplying by 1000, Huh!
    I like to have an ad at the top and side (you can only have 3 ads max on a page) hope this helps

  6. I keep ads on the top, middle, and bottom and get about 5% ctr.

  7. I only used Dragoons for the most part, on the Protoss missions.

  8. Mine is very sporadic. Check your channels in your reports and add channels that get high eCPM.
