Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Hell, it's about time!

    There used to be videos on youtude showing hotkey tricks for hatcheries, but I can't seem to find them anymore.

    I miss wireframe spawn larvae.

    I put all my hatcheries into one hotkey, usually 6, but I should probably switch to a way that lets me get to each hatch quickly for spawning larva. having them all on one key makes it really easy to make a shitload of units quick though

    so I was able to get out of work early because my throat's getting pretty raw (no, really! I know what it looks like but I really do have a sore throat!) from being sore and working on the phones

    so I'm playing the campaign and so far this is pretty aces
    normal difficulty is pretty easy, but I figure I'll play on normal to see how everything plays out and then replay on hard for achievements

    but top notch game, and I don't get the people that are complaining the campaign is too "cliche"

    Teir 2 isn't bad.

    You can usually get away with making about 3-4 sets of lings and 2-3 spine crawlers as defense while you tech up to hydras.

    This is, of course, if the other team isn't going all in off of 2 gate pressure or fast marauder/reaper play.

    But Protoss are so fun

    I honestly feel intimidated playing Zerg. Is there a trick or a standard on how you should hotkey your hatcheries & queens?


    My system is generally to hotkey only my queens.

    Each hatchery gets a queen. Whenever I want to look at my hatchery, I double-click the hotkey for the queen associated with that hatchery. This makes it a lot easier to remember to Spawn Larvae; the first thing I do if the Hatchery doesn't have eggs already on it is spawn larvae. Then I click-select the hatchery and go from there.

    How in the eff do you macro during battle?

    I do hatches 6, queens 7 and spawn larvae on the minimap. I want to work on making my newest hatch 5 as well to focus on making drones there, and then hitting 6 shhhhhhhhhhhhhh (I basically only mass hydras at this point, haha)

    I originally wasn't going to play tomorrow, but I broke down and got 3 of my placements in, that is all I'll do before tomorrow though.


    Oh my god that two week break from the beta was torture on my game. My first game I lost to a strat that I probably should've been able to beat with my eyes closed. Luckily, after that first one my macro still felt atrocious, but since I lost against a bronze(!) player, it put me against more bronze players, so I basically could just toy with them 'till I won.

    Fucccck.

    I might break down and buy it tonight instead of waiting until the weekend or next week or whatever.

    Obviously I had a clear plan on when I was going to buy it.
