    Anyone looking forward to StarCraft II ?

    It looks like they're trying to get everyone that showed interest in it hooked :D
    I just got a Beta Key for the final week of Beta Testing :D

    I was always a WarCraft player. Got bummed in 3 when they removed ships though. :(

    It should arrive for me tomorrow. I was playing in the beta for awhile last month before they took it down to upgrade Battle.net. I am pretty bad at it, but... Zerg all the way!

    Saw the ads for it, can't afford the $60 to $100 for it right now :sigh:
    So I'll just keep playing with the Map Editor & playing with different ideas on building up bases & layouts for now.

    I bought a copy and have messed around with the campaign. So far it is much like the original with better graphics. It is a fun game, but will probably not inspire me to play for hours as the first one did.

    I'm SO BAD at playing this game online! Anyone know any good youtube tutorials for good online strategy? I know where were a lot for WarCraft 3, some good, some bad.

    Nice, I think I'm holding out a while for the price to drop, after playing the demo, and no Local Network play, I can't see spending the $60 for it right now.

    Yeah, probably not worth it if you can't get multiplayer seeing as there's only the one campaign.

    Should arrange a game though once everyone has a copy if people are up for it, as long as people promise not to rush :p

    I've been playing SC2 since the very first round of beta invites, and I like to think I'm doing pretty well having never really played the first SC all that much. Silver league in 1v1 and 3v3, gold league in 4v4. Haven't done any 2v2 yet because I'm waiting for a good teammate. My info is in my sig so anyone here can add me if they want to play a game against me (all my friends seem to be scared for some reason).

    Check out HDStarcraft and HuskyStarcraft for some high level play and great commentary explaining exactly what is happening. It has actually improved my understanding of the game immensly.

    I'm terran. They're just so flexible to meet any situation. That and they have guns.

    To be honest, I haven't really decided which side I'm going to play as most.

    I think I'm most familiar with Terran, but I'm basing that on my Starcraft 1 experience.

    Incidentally, it really seems like the new Starcraft 2 Protoss were somewhat inspired by the Scrin from C&C3 if the colossal mothership and tripod walkers are anything to go by :p

    Mothership is kind of a waste in my opinion. 10 valkyries and it's toast. The valkyries can take care of the collosis too (it can't target air)

    Seems to me that the real advantage lies in....I forget their name, the little flying dudes that can turn into pylons. Build tons of warpgates and :D
