Gaming News of the Day: Astronomers Study StarCraft Strategies
Earlier this week, Royal Observatory of Edinburgh research astronomers Dr. Thomas Targett and Dr. Duncan Forgan released an academic paper investigating which StarCraft II race has the most viable game strategies. The team observed 500 professional StarCraft II matches in order to gather their data, taking notes on when players made choices that would affect their long-term success or if they were playing to make the battle end swiftly. After running 100 simulations through the Monte Carlo method, they determined the members of the Terran Dominion had the best chance of permanently defeating the Zerg and Protoss races for control over the Milky Way.
