For those of you into your videogame design, chances are you'll  have come across the excellent video series Extra Credits, hosted on Penny Arcade. Well, in today's episode, WoT got an honourable mention for it's good use of 'counter-play' in the game. Put shortly, good 'counter-play' is considering the impact game mechanics have on not just the using player, but on the target player as well. Extra Credits picks up on how the arty 'sniper' mechanic does this by posing as a unique in-game threat  but also gives the opponents a wide number of options to 'counter' said mechanic (Do they take out the scouts? Do they goad the scouts in? etc.)

For those of you interested in watching the full video (heck, the full series is worth watching), then the link is given below.
