With the hope of a StarCraft II beta renewed in the RTS community, StarCraft: IncGamers has released a guide on how to best prepare your StarCraft II skills ahead of time
Sounds awesome, time to dust off my old Starcraft and Broodwar :D
Wait a minute... you dared un-install that gem? :p
So Recka, Want to brush up on some Broodwar? hehehe
Which one? I have like 3 boxes I have bought on different occasions!
I sense another tournament inbound!... troglodyte will go down sometime! *shakes fist* Sc2 - *drooooooool*
NOOOO I formatted and maybe one day we can play again lol :P
my old CD's were damaged but thanks to the new battlenet system i can d/l them instead, glad i had like 3 of each game's CD keys still around!
They're all around here somewhere :)
Two words in terms of preparation until release day, freeze self
Must - study - skills.... Must get my own apm above 12.5! .... gimme! :D
you have less than 12.5 actions per minute? :P
no no, i have more than 12! :D 12.5... atleast that's what the RUSE beta said... xD But yeah... uh.. not good xD
Here's hoping that SC2 supports an APM toggle display of some kind to be used in game - or even during the end game summary.
Awesome :) We can all use a brush up I'm sure hehe
It's close, I can feel it... :)
How do u feel it? :P cause im still a bit pessimistic, but holy hell, something is gonna happen soon! :D
Hopefully, third time is the charm. They didn;t deliver on the previous 2, but now the Battle.net should surely be a lot closer to done!
Hopefully :D Things are looking that way
I want to prepare myself, for the beta which may or may not arrive soon!
It will arrive soon. Let's remain optimistic ok. :)
Haha, covering all bases :)
Course it will arrive soon! :D "soon" being the keyword... xD
Can't wait for the beta honestly, and i know many people have been waiting as well.
sounds like im going to need to brush up on my old SC and BW skills after 10 years. Man i'm rusty. All i have to say is Protoss Cannon Barriers, and completely surrounding the base in them. I use to fend off air invasions with those things. Ahh the good old days!
This reminded me of some really old strats I used to do back with SC. Many of which would probably not work these days. It's going to be great getting back into the mindset.
yeah i blame the old () clutter maps and mass mineral mine maps for that strat. I've even made an old map that had an island off the side somewhere that had enough minerals to own everything X10. So fun though hehe!
:lol: thanks for that!
I'd almost forgotten they were making SC2. After all the push last year, it's been silent for 6 months, due to the b.net delays. ON the bright side, the sc2 team should have just about finished the first expansion by now, with 6 months of time to kill. Right? heh heh heh
Indeed, there was a bit of a dry spell there during the end of last year (and start of this one) but the latest beta rumors could suggest that something big is coming. :)
Yeah bit of a dry spell while B.net was being redone but hey more time for better Singleplayer :D
Hah. I think I'm going to need this. Been waiting for the beta for so long!
Bye bye social life when this hits the shelves...
My SC2 preparation guide: * 1 month of sick leave from work * 4 24-packs of red bull * few metric tons of beef jerky, easy to eat while you play with other hand. =)
incgamers also has a pretty noob friendly starcraft tournament as well so this is the best place if you're noob or semi noob
