Starcraft 2 diamond guide

Posted in Blizzard, Humor, Starcraft 2, Starcraft 2 News, Starcraft 2 Protoss, Starcraft 2 Terran, Starcraft 2 Units, Starcraft 2 Zerg, Starcraft 2 strategy on December 23rd, 2010

Now, you can view videos on Youtube all day long but you won’t get better at Starcraft 2. Why? Mostly because the pros practice every day but more importantly, there are different map and unit strategies that they utilize depending on their opponent.

Best piece of advice? Look out for the LittleOne – amazing player with all three races:

Zealot Charge

Posted in Blizzard, Humor, Starcraft 2, Starcraft 2 News, Starcraft 2 Protoss, Starcraft 2 Units, Starcraft 2 beta, Starcraft 2 video on May 21st, 2010

I’ve played 100+ games as Protoss in the Starcraft 2 beta. There’s one upgrade that you need to do (apart form the must-have Warp Gate tech)… the Zealot Charge.

Especially if you’re facing another Protoss who is blinking his Stalkers all over the place, or a Terrain with Marauder ball.

Here’s a little song that I sing that reminds me to get Charge ASAP: God will cut you down!

So research charge and God will cut them down for you. Starcraft 2 has that level of amazing depth.

Starcraft 2 out on 27 July

Posted in Blizzard, Starcraft 2, Starcraft 2 News, Starcraft 2 Protoss, Starcraft 2 Terran, Starcraft 2 Units, Starcraft 2 Zerg, Starcraft 2 beta, Starcraft 2 strategy on May 21st, 2010

starcraft 2 releasedSomehow I reported this news on my Diablo 3 site but not here.

Well, if you’re living on the Moon
, yes, Starcraft 2 has it’s official release date set at 27 July 2010.

Now, this will only include the Terran campaign (as far as I know). You’ll have to pay separate for the Zerg and Protoss campaigns and I bet they’ll make it so that you have to buy them in order to have a NORMAL multiplayer experience.

The good news is I’ve played the Starcraft 2 beta and it looks like an amazing game. It improves greatly on Starcraft, it’s a lot more dynamic and diverse.

One of the more interesting features is the new Battle.net. The rankings, the leagues, and different rewards stimulate a “one more game” mentality.

I would write more
but really the beta ends this month so boy oh boy, I need to return to play more games as random. This is really excellent practice.

The really sad part
is that I’ve played over 100 games as Protoss but when I play as random, I only lose big time if I play Protoss. Go figure!

Starcraft 2 beta Platinum league

Posted in Blizzard, Humor, Starcraft 2, Starcraft 2 News, Starcraft 2 Protoss, Starcraft 2 Units, Starcraft 2 beta, Starcraft 2 strategy on May 20th, 2010

Yours truly has been unable to post recently due to a total obsession with the Starcraft 2 beta.

starcraft 2 platinum league

I qualified for Platinum league and this is where my troubles started. No sooner than I become #3 in the league, I decided I’ll play all through Saturday night.

Well, you know it will end up badly.
First, all the good player play on weekends. Second, being tired and playing Starcraft 2 do not go hand in hand. Long story short… I ended up 2 leagues down.

OK, I’m #1 in Bronze but what the heck – it’s very easy to go down and impossible to go UP in the league system!

Starcraft 2 beta emails out

Posted in Blizzard, Starcraft 2, Starcraft 2 News, Starcraft 2 beta, Starcraft 2 screenshots on February 19th, 2010

If you have signed up for the Starcraft 2 beta, you should be getting an email in the coming days.

I’m still waiting for mine but I’m not desperate yet. Yet, if you can offer me a Starcraft 2 beta key, send me a tell!

While we’re on this note, beware of scammers who are sending fake beta invites and request passwords, bank info, and what not. Remember that Blizzard doesn’t need your password or bank info to send you a beta key. They have your email and that’s ALL they need.

So keep you fingers crossed you get into the beta!

Starcraft 2 maps for sale

Posted in Blizzard, Starcraft 2, Starcraft 2 News on August 22nd, 2009

According to Kotaku (and Rob Pardo specifically) you can design your own map and SELL it.

Blizzard wants to foster the best mod community in existence, and to that ends they’ve unveiled plans to single out premium custom-created maps for sales on a StarCraft 2 marketplace. Maps will be split into two categories – normal and premium – with the former free and the latter for sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to the map’s creators. Blizzard hopes this will lead to more choice for StarCraft 2 players, and more innovative and creative custom maps fueled by the potential financial rewards.

I guess Blizzcon is a bit shy on Starcraft news, Diablo 3 got a new class – the Monk!

Starcraft 2 beta test signup

Posted in Blizzard, Starcraft 2, Starcraft 2 News on July 25th, 2009

Patience is such a stupid virtue! Blizzard have finally announced the Starcraft 2 beta test sign up.

The instructions are very simple:

  1. Sign up for a battle.net account
  2. If you have a Battle.net account, login here.
  3. You’ll see a link “SC2 Beta Profile Settings
  4. Download an app that will upload your system specs
  5. You’re done

My guess is Starcraft 2 release date could be near too. The word is Activision-Blizzard are under pressure to release a major game in 2009 as their earnings don’t look too rosy. Of course, Blizzard are known for their motto: we release when the game is ready.

Starcraft out in 2009

Posted in Blizzard, Starcraft 2, Starcraft 2 News, Starcraft 2 Protoss, Starcraft 2 video on June 23rd, 2009

There’s been quite a bit of speculation about Starcraft 2 release date – as with all Blizzard games. Blizzard’s motto – it’s out when it’s ready – means that exact dates are now known before about a month before.

So it’s good news that Mike Morhaime said at E3 that Starcraft will be out in 2009. Of course, he put it in a conditional sentence!

Blizzard’s Mike Morhaime has said that Starcraft II will be released this year as long as it “meets our standards and the expectations of our players”.

The latest gameplay video I saw, there have been some new Protoss units, so I guess Blizzard never tire of adding/subtracting units.

Terra-tron

Posted in Blizzard, Humor, Starcraft 2, Starcraft 2 News, Starcraft 2 Terran on April 3rd, 2009

Stand back for the mighty Terra-tron. In Starcraft 2, the whole Terran base comes together at the hour of need in order to create the uber unit – Terra-tron.

See Blizzard’s April Fool’s joke for 2008 – Tauren Marine.

Starcraft 2: Zerg vs Protoss
