Why?

I used to be Gold ranked... Even then that's not very good.

This game is a massive disappointment. I've lost all hope for Blizzard...

I played the crap out of this last summer. It was really fun for me. The campaign sucked a **** tho, but that's not why I bought it.

To the OP, if you learn ur auto-keys, it'll be a lot more fun because the faster you can work, the better the player you'll be.

P.S: I was gold ranked, Platinum in teams :)

Ok,

So what are auto-keys?

Apparently, compared to everyone else on this board I suck. I get my ass handed to me on a regular basis and am rated brown for poop.

Please post some advice everyone

BTW I thought the campain was fun

I was top 10 diamond, narrowly missing the highest division.
Watch videos on pros, learn some build orders, and work on your APM.

I got to the point of practicing against the AI and ended up uninstalling it. Despite being terrible at SC1 it drew me in in a way the sequel couldn't.

I'm top 25 bronze for 1v1 and top 25 silver for 3v3 with a couple of my real life friends.

Used to play a lot of CNC and Red Alert back in the day and got used to using the keyboard to the highest extent possible... I might be missing a few of the hot keys yet, but they'll come to me.

If anyone wants to play, pm me your gamertag.

Was gold last year.Every single game was cheese or rush which is fun for a little while but I like longer games , getting maxed out and top tier units but that just didnt happen often enuff so I got bored and gave it up. I still enjoy watching pro games with commentary tho.

Yea the 200 max supply is kinda dumb.

I've lost a few games because of it but I guess it's another factor to be used for your own advantage

How can you lose because of the supply cap? Both players play with the same rules. It's just part of StarCraft in the same way that castling is a part of chess or icing is a part of hockey. Sure, you could play without all of those rules, but it wouldn't be the same game.

Well I'm reinstalling the game (downloading from Blizzard again. . . taking a very long time). I have no idea what race I'll play so I'll most likely just assign each a number from 1-3 and then use a number generator to make my selection for me.

This will probably all bite me in the rear. I should probably just play Tribes.

Blizzard just sent me an Email saying it's been discounted down to 40 bucks.

Still seems on the high side to me.

That isn't high at all. The Diablo 2 battle chest was still costing full price a year or two ago.

$40 for a video game is too high? Even one that's indisputably the best of its genre?

Of course. As a new player, I've lost due to that factor.

I'm learning.

Thanks for the advice.

Well despite having the game reinstalled I've only managed to work on build timing against the AI.

I still have no idea which race I'll main.

Back to watching Day[9] videos I guess.

It's 2 years old already.

40 is my maximum but I usually get older games for 20-30 bucks.


BTW, Do you get a hard copy or just a DDL?

Pretty sure you can order a physical copy from the Blizzard site, but it is a whole lot easier to just buy the digital version (the key will be tied to your account).

I always played random. Learning how to play each race well helps a lot with learning how to counter each race well. But I still like Toss best. Dunno why, I just do.

You can usually download it again from your account (not sure if it's through Steam), and you can access the game via your account so nothing would be lost.
