Mu’s note, 3/20/2009:  The Por Corps was a loose group of Starcraft players formed around a core of us who used to play a lot of 8 hour marathons at Shadwolf’s house, and never ever even thought of playing online until Kel_Riever, our weakest player, single-handedly beat a team of 4 idiots on his first game on Battle.net.  The Por Corps competed in the Deathlands Starcraft League run by Abaddon around early 1999ish, with a very good record until everyone got bored and pretty much quit, leaving [PC]Tigger to form a new Por Corps consisting of weak players, whose sole job it was to annoy everyone else in the league by playing really strangely all the time.  Sadly, there are no records from this halcyon period, but you can imagine what those games were like by reading [PC]Tigger’s endgame treatise.


This is the home of the Por Corps, a team drummed up by Musashi for the Deathlands Starcraft League at the behest of Azrael.  This site is utterly useless right now, as I haven’t had time to even train the team, let alone work on some ridiculous website, but I’m publishing it now in its unfinished state, since every harebrained online gaming group needs a website to feel validated.

The point of the Por Corps is mainly to try and play StarCraft better, in a manner which is interesting and tactically sound, as well as trying dumbass tricks once in a while.
