I just picked up the game yesterday (I know, super late to the party), but was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to get started at becoming competent in mp. I have watched a bunch of streams, and know the basics in theory, but haven't executed them myself. Just working through the campaign right now, but was hoping someone could give me some tips, or even be kind enough to chat with me so I could ask questions if I ever have them come up. Thanks a lot!

Feel free to add me on Steam-Swarley27, Skype-Duogmegost, or In game-VeiledAiel, if you're willing to chat. Thanks again.

Which server r u in mate?

Since u have been watching streams, chances r that u are aware of basic strategies and unit compositions. So, my advice is practise ur mechanics. Also, try as random first, find a race that u enjoy macroing.

First thing first, hang out in overclock.net when you are on. Jediwin, myself, and others would be more than willing to help.

Sangers,
I'm on NA server (that's all I know, is there a way to see more specifically?), just registered for the practice league, haven't actually played a mp game yet, and figure I'll still be placed in bronze anyways, but if I can practice enough to get into silver before I play, then it's worth it imo . I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to games, so am trying to prepare myself as much as possible before i do anything that counts. Thanks a lot for the random tip, I had been worried about what race to go, but figured I would play terran at first since I have campaign experience.

Edit: And thanks Doom, I just hopped on the channel.

For BSG easiest race to hardest: T, P, Z
but terran skill curve is far higher than toss

I picked zerg cause it's a COMMI race. True Story

I might join u guys later, with my main or my smurf

I'm in school atm O_o
