The truth about turtles
I am writing new takeaways for our gamerDNA RTS quiz. Here is what I have so far for turtle:

You could rush if you wanted to, but that playstyle style is just not fun for you. You like to get the lay of the land and your defenses up and running before engaging the enemy. You actually enjoy the building aspect as much as moving units around and attacking. You play for fun and are not that interested in being known for "ubermicro" For this reason it's best to look for other turtles to play with.


I am a turtle, but when I answered the questions in the quiz, I did not give turtle answers. That's because I know how to win, I just don't want to do it. I answered the questions with what I know, not what I do, so I came up commander. Did anyone else have similar experiences?

So what do you think if you are a turtle? Is this good?

I ended up coming out turtle, but I'm a special case of turtle - I'm a tech tree addict. It's a side effect of being brought up on the Civilization series.

I tried to answer all the quiz answers as honestly as possible.
Being (or at least feeling like) a newbie, I did answer I wanted to learn from my sessions.
I suppose once I'm getting more used to playing more RTS games my results will shift.
Anyway, I ended up as such:



And yes, I feel comfortable with your turtle description.
I like going the SimCity route and building a nice-looking base at least as much as causing destruction.

I also like your turtle description. I love the building aspect, watching my empire grow is alot more fun than destroying my opponent's. I guess it depends on the game though, being a turtle in some games is just not possible, in games where you have to rush the resource points or where the base defenses are not very strong.

As much as I wish I had uber micro, I'm comfortable knowing I don't have it, nor will I probably ever have it. *practices his air micro*
