I play as random, but I use this strategy when I play zerg. I get Jaws Roaches and burrow under and pop up right under the enemy army.. Then I proceed to flank with speed lings.

This way, if you do decide to change races, and you suck at said race, you'll start out in the right league.
Hahahaha, this is definitely a good idea but I really really want to play as the zerg and protoss anyway. I was kind disappointed we are only getting the Terran campaign for now. So I won't have a problem switching it up in multiplayer. I really can't wait now. Maaaaaaan 4:30 can not come soon enough.

Well units in the campaing aren't all used in multiplayer.... Multiplayer is more classic and you can't upgrades the units..

I won't play too much campaign, cause I want to be good online

Is game length entirely determined by the strategy or is there a time limit of sorts on MP?

What is the average game length for non hardcore players?

Complete by strategy, I'd say half an hour on average.

Anyone else realise how brutal this game is on systems? My Q9550 is overclocked to 4.0GHz and starts buckling when there's a 4v4 fight on screen and firebats start spraying everywhere.
post #130 of 25319
I did not like the first one, not even brood war but this one .... it is pure win!!! Epic game, Blizzard, once again, managed to create a blockbuster. Probably game of the year. I've done some reading about the Star Craft series and know all about Kerrigan . Graphics on this one are amazing, the level of interaction and humour is spot on. I love the scroll zoom option and the attention to detail. Funny how the medic units are chicks. Their voices crack me up every time . I don't like how CrossFire X works tho. On my sig rig, I am hitting 150 FPS in most areas but there are sudden dips into the high fifties and when I enabled V-SYNC, it dropped to 30 when the Yamamoto fighter, or whaterver it is called, came to the rescue. Guess we need better drivers from ATI!!!! Also, WTH is wrong with Afterburner??? It keeps on moving on my screen. It does not stay in the top left corner like in my other games.


P.S.: Is that a random chick on Tycus or something significant?





I love the reporter and the propaganda




This is where my frames halved due to poor drivers . Probably when you have V-SYNC on. You dip under due to micro-stutter, you automatically get half the FPS in that instant .
