Here's a video for a basic protoss opener:

[u2b]<object width="640" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/ah69S-TsQa8&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/ah69S-TsQa8&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="385"></embed></object>[/u2b]

This guy and HDStarcraft make commentaries on starcraft battles between higher level gamers. After watching a bit of the higher level players you get a sense of how to counter certain moves.

GL

P.S. Reinstalling SC now to remake my profile and add all of you, but I won't play for too long.

Could you guys give me your names again?
So far I have: chengysogood.chengysogood
shinigami.okanami (did I spell that right?)
extra.mac (does he exist?)

Who else?

OK...this is pretty scary...how did this happen?



Actually, I blame the influx of people who pre-ordered the game to get the beta key. They're now in the mix with everyone who's been playing for months.

  3. Downgrade to Patch 8
  4. Obtain SC2ALLin1_setup773Beta
  5. Download maps with AI support.
  6. Play

this is a very general step by step but it worked great for offline play vs AI. I have not played Starcraft in years but it seems not much has changed. I am stickler for Protoss and my old strategy still works (photo cannon defense spam early game --> carriers mid to end game). It's not the most exciting/clever strategy but hey I'm not a competitive player and it's fun for me

I tried changing the resolutions, but the screen size didn't change. I assume this is for competitive reasons?

I tried that before I got the beta invite. It's really completely different when you have multiplayer. BTW your cannon defense is so easy to break :P

Gratz on the plat shini, not exactly bronze like you wanted LOL

That strategy (or any strategy) will work against the AI as it is in the Beta. My friend who works for Blizzard says they have harder AI, and it's what they play with, but it's not available to us beta testers.

That's all that matters...is that you're having fun. I'm not very competitive either, and prefer to do different things (you can tell by my posts). Competitive means the same broken strats, and who can do it better.

I'm looking forward to playing with the AI in massive-comp-stomps.

I've read somewhere that people with widescreen monitors will benefit somehow in this game. Not sure though.

I play wit ha 23" widescreen and when I increase the resolution I see more of the map. Like the difference between 800x600 res and 1920x1280 is 2-3 times the view of the map.

Ah! Ladder reset again! I mean...it's nice to win all the placement matches, but it's not fun playing people who are seriously just starting out all the time.

Only thing different today was that I logged in and I was a different user. But a relog fixed that.

my game started going crazy yesterday and it made me lag/crash/disc out of 3-4 games yesterday. my ladder got bugged and i lost my 1v1 as well as some 2v2 ladder rankings.. pretty lame but hey its only beta so far. i played about 20 games yesterday.. rank 1 in my 2v2 gold division with 1 of my brothers. unfortunately my division sucks.. i think rank 2 doesn't even have 1100 points. good thing u get matched up w/ ppl outside of your div too
