[Official] Starcraft 2 Strategy & Discussion Thread - Page 31

post #301 of 25319
Well since this is a Discussion and Screenshot Thread and there are very few screenshots I guess I'll add some.

*SPOILER* *LAST MISSION IN CAMPAIGN*

99.7%

99.8%

This mission took me like a ton of tries because I spent all my credits on fun stuff like thors/ghosts/bcs and I didn't have stuff like viking aoe and bunker/turret upgrades. I chose to eliminate nydus worms in the mission before this. Yeah, it's on brutal.

I've heard the air attack on the last mission is insane. I just finished the ground campaign and it's really easy. Just wall with CCs and plant Tanks behind them and go Nydus hunting with a pack of banshees. EZPZ. Good luck on it, though, if you haven't already beaten it.

nrgx - were you playing evolves? j/k. dam that must have been some game. mothership is a pretty badass unit imo. couple with a good army, its a very good support unit. i sometimes build one if i have an insane surplus for the fun of it.

like ajax, i dont find the mmm build all that hard to beat. templars/colossi arent insignificant like coma says. the fact is they are your support units. you dont just mass them so only a couple is great. if you get emp, just walk your army back, dont engage. shields recharge fast. flanking is good but splitting your amry is always risky.

i prefer the templars over the colossi vs terran in general. colossi get snipe too fast when you first get them but back up with a huge army, they are devasting in the later game. templars on the other hand arent that easy to snipe and they form archon which i found pretty handy. the fact they arent light/armored and dont take addition damage plus 300 shields make them great meat shields for the army.

@ajax, have you found a good build against mech? i been doing a split between 4gate or immortal pushes.

Go to My Documents, find StarCraft II, open the Variables.txt file. There's entries for "height" and "width" you can change. Should work.

I either go for a quick Void Ray to force vikings or marines on a T that I think is meching and then transition to chargelots and immortals off two base or I do a straight 2 immortal push into expand.

Both builds stand to do a lot of damage early if your timing is right and both can set up a heavy immortal/chargelot mid-game, which I think is the key to PvT mech.

what worked for me is changing the res in the variables file, then in the game switching to windowed mode.
