For those of you who don't know, here are some good resources to step up your game.

Day9's Commentary:
Pretty much the best in the business, an A+ player in ICCUP and very solid random player, he has the most interesting and amusing commentaries out there, aswell as some tutorials and such.

TL: Speaks for itself. The hub of North-American Starcraft E-Sports. Like, 90% of the members are Diamond. You can find plenty of tournaments to sign up for and such.

If you're a beginner, Husky's or HDstarcraft's channels are good, but remember what they do is mostly for entrainment, and once you start getting into Platinum+, it's time to move on.

I don't mean to be rude, but this thread is plagued by misinformation and theory-crafting. I'd refer to the above.

He does it to help the viewers. His commentaries are also for helping the viewers learn strategy, not just entertainment [although they are entertaining too]. He pauses often to show people what went wrong, ect.

How do I take screenshots in game?
post #455 of 25318
I use FRAPS and I assign the screenshot / record keys to my numpad. If I don't I have some issues because most of the F- keys are allocated in SC II.

Epic nailbiter end of this mission, I was surprised how much pressure the Hard difficulty could put on me. . .



It's not easy but I really really like the photo finish feeling. . .

I use Print Screen (this will save jpg screens to the Documents/Starcraft II folder) since every key seems to be bound to something and you can't change the binds.

wait, you finished the campain on hard?
I cant seem to get past 75% on the final mission.

END GAME SPOILER BE CAREFULL BELOW!
I chose to take out the nydus worms in the mission right before and i always got my ground forces pwned by air units. Maybe i shoulda done the other way. Ill try it when i get the chance.

Kerrigan pisses me off at the end though. 1 shot kill on ANY unit I have sucks. I can irradiate her from far but she just takes out my vessels and continues on..

No I haven't beaten it on hard yet. . . I just started this campaign. I was just showing that screen and how close I came to failing.

I just did Red stone and that was long and drawn out. .

I did beat this on normal yesterday, and I know Kerrigan always took out my larger units. . .

If you have Ghosts though 4 of them with snipe will take her out pretty easy or so I've been told.
