Starcraft 2

Recommended Posts

Forgive me if there's another topic on this, I did a search but couldn't find one about this specifically.

 

So, who's looking forward to Starcraft 2? I got a beta invite a little while ago and it looks good, but kinda feeling annoyed with not having a better computer, so I'm stuck using all the low settings. Does anyone else here have a beta invite? If so, how did you find it? For those who didn't, the beta isn't exactly all too great, it only has multiplayer and the lag isn't exactly non-existent, if you catch my drift.

 

Mods feel free to update.

I've been playing the beta for a week or so now, very fun game. Played SC1 and BW when they came out 10ish years ago. Loved the series ever since. Looking forward to SC2 cant wait until its actually retail; looks pretty good on ultra settings especially for an RTS. Signed up for the beta when the opt-in first started a few years ago. I'm usually playing SC2 when I'm not playing HoN and recently picked up RS again after several long brakes. So much has changed... Sooooo much.

Yeah I have an invite but I just let a friend play it.

 

*Shrug* no interest what-so-ever about SC2.

What not nadril?!

 

Never really liked or "got" starcraft. I've never been a big RTS fan in general (Do love Dawn of War and AoE though) but Starcraft never appealed to me. The beta was no different.

I'm really looking forward to SC2 :thumbsup: Got into the beta and am playing it as Zerg right now. I just started today so I'm doing my 10 matchup games first, and I've noticed there are quite a lot of people who don't know what the hell they're doing. I suspect these are the players who got the beta invite by signing up for it when the WoW accounts were tied to battlenet accounts :mrgreen:

Yes, that sig was annoying.

On one hand I see people playing the game and I envy them, on the other I am quite aware that if I got the beta key my education would go down the drain. So yeah, I'm waiting until it's refined and on store shelves before I get too into it.

I'm really looking forward to the release of SC2 for macs. Most of my excitement comes from the fun and joy that the first game brought me growing up. It was so much fun, I how this new installment will live up to the first. I still can't believe that you never played the original SC Nadril.. I just can't.

Why? I've never exactly shown myself as an RTS fan after all.

Uploading that replay for a friend, so yeah, shameless advertising.

 

Tbh, fastortoise, the game is pretty polished. I can't see this beta lasting longer than a month or two.

It really is just one of those games I would have expected everyone, around our age, to have played despite its genre.

I played Starcraft when I was younger, liked the campaign, but couldn't get online... And whenever I tried to fight the computer, they all ganged up on me and had like... 50 units when I finally got a barracks up. That was also another turn-off for me, everything went so slow. You couldn't upgrade units very quickly, building took a while... Just wasn't fun after I played games like AoE and AoM. Maybe if I had tried online I'd have another feel towards it... but meh.

StarCraft 2 is anything but slow :P

 

BTW, anyone know any good Zerg build against a standard marine + marauder rush that doesn't involve roaches? I tried some variations of baneling builds, but I'm not so great at micro'ing them (they seem quite intent at suiciding directly).

Infestors/Lings/BLings works well. If you can get to Brood Lords, Brood Lords/Lings works well, get hydras if it looks like they're going to have Vikings too.

Hydras do pretty well against MMM but oftenly it takes tad to long to get them out. What I recommend is going roaches w/ an evo chamber for +1 attack that should finish a little while after you get your hydra den up.

 

I don't have an betakey so I've been playing with an custom AI that cheats, although the pushes tend to come out at about the same time as in several VODS I've , a bit stronger though. Considering it's updated quite frequently after the builds that are actually going on in the beta I think it's quite accurate in the start but with some faults in mid-end game.

 

Build would be Pool > Queen > 2xGas > Roach> Lair > Evo > Hydra > Hatch @ Nat. I think those are the gas timings I've used and I do move my workers off gas when it's not needed. Might want try Pool > Queen > 2xGas > Lair > Evo > Hydra @ Nat aswell on maps with long rushdistances. Ofcourse you might have to switch it up after what you've seen in his base etc.

 

Btw, I think I deserve a key since I have Korean blood in me :<.

 

I always found it boring.

Okay, I figured I'd have to use roaches somewhere. But I just wanted to check my options, since I think roaches are a little bit bland right now :P Thanks for the tips :)

 

By the way, now everyone in the beta got a friend invite each to give out :) I'm sending one to my close friend so we can do 2v2's.
