PostSubject: Starcraft 2   Thu May 20, 2010 12:27 am

Anyone going to be playing it? I've been playing the beta some. Really cool game but fuck me if you can't win with just zealots and stuff like that any more. Starcraft 1 is a ton of fun because of the overwhelming number of ways to newb stomp people. Starcraft 2 it's not so simple to newb stomp or at least I haven't learned good newb stomp strategies yet. The 4 warpgate seems to win quite often if it's played well. I play Protoss but I'm going to learn Zerg and Terran also eventually here (every player has to if they want to understand the strategies). I'm 9 plat on the ladder right now.

I've always wanted to try starcraft, what with all of the mega hype and all. Maybe I'll start with Starcraft 2 when it comes out because so many starcraft one players are fantastic at it.

Yeah hopefully Starcraft 2 doesn't start off so high level. It might though because I'm pretty sure a ton of Starcraft 1 players are going to be flooding it (like me lol).

Well look at it this way...for beta there are a bunch of division, and each one is its own ladder. There are 5 sections. You play 5 placement matches and if you win none or one you go to the copper section. Two, bronze. Three, silver, Four, gold. Five, platinum. And each section has ~100 people. It shouldn't be so bad. And there are always those UMS maps which are like a whole bunch of games in and of themselves, usually really addictive and fun to learn.

Man I was looking for more Starcraft 2 games to feed my strategy knowledge and I ran into the Korean starcraft 2 vids.

Just T_T. Not that Koreans on battle.net or whatever scare me. Just the progamer ones are insane.

Oh yeah whether you like it is basically up to how much you like RTS games. I can easily imagine it just being like the most boring painful thing ever. It depends on the person. Like I'm not into FPS. And mmorpgs are pretty cool but draining.

My computer isn't very good and I'm able to run it. I set the process to high priority and turn all the settings to the lowest possible. My computer is made for multi-media and has some generic graphics card, but it's a new computer. Maybe like a year old.

Beta isn't so bad because it pits you against people around your skill level. I've only played the platinum ladder so I'm not sure how difficult the other ladders are. I'm sure copper is pretty easy and fun. Bronze too. Silver is probably okay, and Gold a little tough. Platinum is where you need to know what you're doing kind of...but top of the platinum ladder is hard. That's where all the people who are good in platinum are.

There is a 2v2 ladder so we could do 2v2.

My computer's like 3 years old though. The most modern game it can run is Dawn Of War. LOL

Nooooooooooo
I just had to play five Starcraft 1 games. I'm fighting a two-front war. I got the clan a good player though. He was in our rival team and he said if I beat him he would join sooo...now he joined lol. We had a couple public 2v2 games. Definitely would go like 50-0 against non-competitive players. He knows his 2v2 well.

Noooooo I lost to a clan rival. I'll get him later or something. I didn't feel out matched just fell behind and the locations were ugly. Also first game against someone who did his kind of strategy.
