People love to show off portraits that they have earned but I had an ally that had a Firebat portrait. Thinking nothing of it. We end up losing 2v2 because of Reaper proxy (I was Zerg so I couldn't help him) he was Terran and that was that. For gigs I usually check profiles of random allies and I see that he had 1398 wins. He had unlocked ALL 1v1 Protoss portraits. I was just wondering why he wasn't using the awesome Tassadar portrait.
What's the most deceitful portrait you guys have seen? I see people that have Kachinsky or whatever still but don't care. Do you think it gives an advantage to yourself by your opponents taking you too lightly?
I use katchinsky (or however its spelled), partly for the mind game, partly cause I dislike all the ones I have. The mind game isn't that they think I don't have any wins and I'm a total scrub, but more so they don't know how many I have, since its obvious at my level play I would have SOMETHING else...
Once I get my queen portrait back, I'll use her. But I remember playing against somebody who had a pretty high level protoss pic (forget what one) but was playing Terran. It defiantly changed my mindset going into the game, for good and bad.
Not even that, remember how like half a month ago there were topics and stuff about DLing save files to get the Kerrigan portrait? One side was like LOLGETMYPORTRAITZ and the other was like EARNITYOURSELFNOOBZ. So, it means little to see a portrait you can essentialy cheat to get.
One time, a couple weeks after the game was out, I played a guy with the uninfested Kerrigan portrait. I proceeded to faceroll him, and after the game, I saw he had completed every campaign achievement.
