Starcraft 2

One of the games I've been playing for the past while, and I have to say, I'm liking it so far. To bad I'm possibly the worst player on the North American ladder. But Gameplay wise, it's simple. I do believe it's one of those games that is easy to learn, but near impossible to master. Yeah, I've still got to learn lots, like more then one build order. ( Cause you know Marines Marauders and Medivacs wins you every game you play)

I got Starcraft 2 a little over 4 months ago,but only recently beat the Campaign. Yeah it isn't the first thing I did, I was more interested in playing multiplayer, which of course, when i managed to cheesed my way into Gold, i straight up stop playing ladder. Why? because these guys destroyed me in every sense of the word. I cheesed my way into Gold, when I had never played a actual game of Starcraft. EVER. I do own the first one, but i just played custom maps on it, didn't play the campaign. Now that being last season, I figure I could go down to maybe worse then bronze, play the placement match, just make scvs, loss horribly like planed. BUT NOOOOO, Blizzard amazing placement device of no fun and lolz, stuck me back in Gold, well I'm like 100th on the Ladder and still haven't moved down. Guess I haven't lost enough games yet.


Anyways enough about how shitty I am at Starcraft. Heart of the Swarm is coming out soon, and after the campaign of Wings of Liberty, I'm actually kind of excited for the new campaign. I really enjoyed the twist at the end of the campaign. Although Tycus was my favorite character throughout the story. He was properly portrayed as a genuine badass. And he did what he had to do.I should stop rambling. So old news is old, and I'm almost certain that Blizzard won't release any more information on Heart of the Swarm till Blizzcon. This time the story is about Kerrigan is out and about trying to reunite the swarm. Sounds good and bad. On one hand, if she really is back to human, she could use the swarm against this impending doom of the Hybrid, talked about in the first campaign. Or she could just royally screw over everyone that had a part in here Humanization, via gaining everyone's trust and exploiting it. I really don't think the latter will happen, but you never know, could make for a very interesting plot twist.

Custom Maps. Oh man there are a lot of them. and DotA is back in the form of SotIS or something like that. I was never a big fan of DotA, could never seem to get my mind around playing, so i could never pick up games like League of Legends or Heroes of Newerth. Probably won't play DotA 2 either. A few games I did quite enjoy, one of them being Squadron Tower Defense and Mineralz.   Squadron is unique, in the tower defense as, your towers are not really towers. After you build/upgrade them they sit there like regular towers, but when the round starts, they act like units, and they can't be controlled so you gotta place your "towers" strategically so that your tanking tower can tank and your weak ass damage towers can kill everything in site. Even though I've found early on, get the tank towers, they suck less. The other custom game is Mineralz, a base survival custom map. You got your little probe guy who can destroy rocks that you destroy to make a base. PRO TIP, if you ever play, you want the smallest entrance and dig out rocks to make a base. You mine different minerals that are used to build various structures, such as, walls to keep the bad dudes out, cannons to blast the shit out of the bad dudes, Healers to heal that wall so it doesn't die on you, Generators, to power those cannons and healers, cause the game would be to easy if they didn't need to be powered and there are a few combo towers, a cannon wall, generator wall, and a generator cannon. Yup thats pretty music the basics of that custom map.
     NO PICTURE THIS TIME TEEHEE

  8. I really like the game, but the plot in the single player is kinda dumb. Still a good game tho.

  15. StarCraft 2 is really fun. Don't be discouraged, if you are progressing slow take a look at your build orders and mechanics. Practicing what the pros do makes you very competitive.

    BTW Flux Pavilion is really really really awesome.

  16. Starcraft II is awesome, but the original will always be better in my mind.
