Not sure how viable it is yet, but opening reactor marines cyclone rush is pretty damn fun, in all match ups!

Vs Zerg you can actually transition into mass cyclone hellion since they are the same speed. You need really great and lots of babying your army to make it work, but its extremely fun.

Patch 3.0 is SO FREAKING LAGGY!!!!!!

I even had a graphics issue once and had to restart.

It is just stutter stutter stutter.. Can't micro at all in team games.

Everything is set to Medium on 1680x1050 and 3v3s still lag ballz

Having fast CPUs is not an excuse for not optimizing a game, not at all. You have to optimize the game in order to make use of the additional power of the CPU. You have a moderately fast car which drives on the highway which has a limit of 120 kmh, when you buy a new race car you are not going to be able to drive faster than120 despite the fact that your race car is capable of doing so. You have to rebuild the road into a race circuit. Same applies to games, especially to SC2 which is pretty much a highway full of racing cars.

I dont see how you would have experience with any of this at all either.

Sorry for the extremely late reply, uni had me busy.

Of course it's not an excuse, but devs still use the amazingly fast CPUs that we have today to hide the fact that their code is amazingly inefficient.
Because if you forget one break in a while loop on a 3Ghz Haswell core, the user will never see the difference, FPS won't drop, however you'll still be using 70%+ more CPU time than you need. And when that builds up, people are left with the impression that a Core i3 or a quad-core Athlon are too slow to play games. That is false beyond measure. These CPUs are blazingly fast.
And I'm not saying that's how it should be, I'm just saying that's how it is. And I have experience, because I've written software for 7Mhz single-core CPUs and am currently writing corporate software for Windows and know how to optimize, and therefore can recognize when something is unoptimized smile.gif

You need to start the 32 bit client until blizzard has a fix ready.

Did the game automatically start using the 64 bit client after the patch? I was under the impression I was using the 32 bit client all along. If so, do I just find the exe in the x86 folder or do I do something else?
