Go play some KR ladder. You'll quickly learn what does and doesn't work. (that's my plan after I'm done with campaign)

Lost a match because I thought corruptors were removed from HOTS tongue.gif so I made mutas + hydras, then at the end I was like oh wait there they are (not removed) doh.gif was an insanely close match but my mutas didn't do so well vs battlecruisers and widow mines owned a lot of my ground forces.

Hi guys, I made a separate thread for this as well, but figured I'll post this inside here too.



We are researchers at the Cognitive Science Lab at SFU conducting a large-scale study on the development of expertise in SC2. This is done by taking replay files and measuring key variables such as Perception Action Cycles.

See here for a more detailed overview of our research objectives. Please also view our interview on the Daily Planet.

Thanks to the online community, we received over 4400 replay files from players during our first data collection period. During this first collection period, we asked players to submit a single replay file along with his or her respective in-game ranking. Here are some interesting findings from the data so far!

For the data collection period on now, we are aiming for a more accurate picture of skill development by measuring skill development at a more individual level. To achieve this we are looking for players who have kept a large collection of personal replay files (300+)!

We need your help in collecting these replays. Please spread the word and encourage players to submit replay files to http://skillcraft.ca/.

Follow our Twitter SkillCraftCa for more updates. If you use Twitter, the easiest way to help is by re-tweeting our posts!

Thanks for your support!
Please direct any questions to our either our Facebook page or our Reddit thread.

I'm Protoss and the vikings are cause I hold best I can and get a colo or 2 asap while constanly being pressured. Its almost impossible to hold without AoE
post #20947 of 25319
is it just mine or when you install SC2 from the disc, it stops around 0.5% then starts to download around 6-7GB of files or does it resume to disc install later? This is frustrating. :|

So... today my account was supposedly compromised. I have up-to-date ESET antivirus, don't visit unknown websites, use Thunderbird for email (maybe not too much help, but doesn't load anything besides text when looking at mail, I also don't click links anyways) so I feel pretty secure. My battle.net password is unique (meaning I don't use it for other sites or games). Anyways, I go to log in to HotS (this is around maybe 5pm-ish, maybe even 6) and am given an incorrect password warning. This happens a few times, so I go to check the forums, and they are having some NA logon issues. I chalk it up to those, and go do other stuff for a while. Come back, the forums say the problem should be fixed, so I try again. Incorrect password still. I go to login to the site so I can request support, and it is incorrect. So I login to my email, and it says that at 6:40 I had changed my password. This is well over an hour after the first time it told me my password was wrong. I re-change my password to a new one (takes them less than 2 minutes to send me an email, so assuming the 'fake' one from 6:40 was also on-time), file a live chat ticket. Nothing. No one has been on my account. Diablo 3 wasn't logged into within 2 weeks and StarCraft 2 hadn't been logged into for the past day. I log into Diablo 3 just to check, and all my gear is there. I just don't know what to make of this lol. Hacked account with nothing used/stolen, or just some technical messup that makes it look like my account was compromised?

That sucks man! mad.gif I had a similar issues a couple of months ago. My Battle.net account was hacked by someone but I was lucky enough to get an email shortly after the guy hacked it informing me of my changed password and associated email address. Tried everything on the FAQ page with nothing working and had to resort to calling Blizzard tech support directly (Nothing worked on the FAQ site because most of it is assuming you can still log in and since the email for my account was changed I couldn't do jack). I was lucky in that I had a physical disc of WoL that I could read off the serial code to verify I was the owner. Tech guy said they had been having a string of hacks at the time and reset everything for me no problems. When I finally got back in and changed all my info back I did some digging and found (I think) that the guy who hacked me was based out of China. He didn't change or mess with anything else that I was able to find...just hacked and changed password and email. If nothing else works try calling Blizz, they were really helpful and pretty quick with my problem. Also, try getting one of the mobile authenticators (even if it turns out it was just a bug and not hacked). Soon as I changed my stuff back I got one of the free ones for my phone ASAP. I will never again go without having an authenticator on my account. Good luck getting everything sorted out!

Is it true with the reset of MMR it's impossible to get placed higher than plat at the moment with placement matches in HOTS? I got placed in gold rolleyes.gif but I have a little comfort that not even GMs/Masters are being thrown into Masters right away... +I figure with the recent changes to gold league (more silver and bronze players in it) should be pretty easy to work my way out...
