I was never into RTS until i play the sc2 beta. I was mostly into FPS and RPG, but I'm definitely buying this

I am guessing he campaign will be really good.

The multiplayer got boring and stale after 2 months of beta.

The multiplayer will sort itself out once the official release happens. Right now the tiers are all composed of the beta players, so the results are skewed.

I'm looking forward to them having a crapload of campaigns and excellent AI as well.

Protoss here, but thinking of making a switch to Terran.

Before you can even pump out your colossus terran can have a pretty big MMGhost ball and the emp = half ur army's shields gone. :\

My macro with Terran is awful though, I'll randomly look up and have like 8,000 minerals. At least with toss I got good micro/macro

I haven't played the beta, but I was addicted to starcraft back in the 90s and early 2000s, before WCIII. Haven't seen a whole lot of information on units or how the game plays differently than SC1. Can't wait for the game to come out!

I usually use 2 strats as protoss (I only play random anymore).

I 3 gateway zealot rush. This is really effective against all races because it is the strongest rush in the game, especially if they try and tech fast.

If my opponent gets smart with early marauders/cannon choke/9 spawning pool, I just turtle and I tech to collusi if I am fighting zerg/terran or void rays if I am fighting protoss.

Went on a tear doing only these strats.

Block off chokepoint. 1 gateway, pump out a couple of stalkers for def. tech fast. then keep em coming.

this. if you just want to be able to play a game, not caring too much about detail settings to high etc, you can find a suitable card. i think i posted in one of your other threads suggesting a card. the 9800gt for $69.99 after mail-in rebate. it is a power hog so make sure you got good airflow and 400+w psu with decent amps.

i seen your video card spec in one of your threads. its honestly 100% the reason why it doesn't run. it's pretty much onboard.

$69.99 after $20 mail in rebate

http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards.php?card1=575&card2=32

comparison between it and the min requirement vid card.

only issue is this is a power hog and can make alot of heat, so make sure you have a proper psu unit and good case airflow.

It's like normal is way too easy and hard is like normal at first then it gets really tough. Got to have some good microing skills and army switching by the time you hit mission 10 on hard.

ARGH. Just when I get ready to start playing this game, my computer goes bonkers. My operating system has just stopped working. Ah well, I've been meaning to upgrade my comp, since it still has stuff on it from 2006 or 2007 when I played WOW, so it's probably pretty outdated.

My thoughts:

Single player missions are varied and a lot more fun than the original. None of that running around to checkpoints nonsense. The achievements (there are over 300 I think) are a nice touch, secondary goals for replay value. Getting achievements on Hard gets hard FAST. Nice original touches, it seems like each mission has it's own unique style.

You can really see that Blizz is trying to make the single player game multifaceted and have a ton of time/replay value. Also they have some units and specialties that are available to use not available in multiplayer.
At 26 unique missions just for terran with TONS of secondary goals, this is more than a complete game. I'm no longer upset about them splitting off the Zerg / 'Toss packages, if they are anything like this they will essentially be 2 complete games in and of themselves.

Sorta bummed at all the SC threads in S/T, guess this one didn't take off well, even COALMAN made his own, haha!

One thing I really feel bad for is the people who have bought this game who have never played SCI and playing multiplayer and having to learn Zerg or 'Toss with no kind of help or tutorial at all....

That's sort of a steep learning curve, geez!
