On July 27th, 2010, StarCraft II Launched.

Marine divisions from all over the Dominion are already on the ground, holding back the ravenous Zerg and thwarting the machinations of the inscrutable Protoss all across the Sector.

Now it's your turn.

    Gonna try and play some of this tonight! I don't know what my ID is yet - I suppose I should probably start up the game to find that out at some point. Would've played at lunch, but ended up grabbing lunch elsewhere.

    its how they do unique identifiers

    you give it the name you want and it auto generates a three digit code suffix

    when you make your profile name, you get a number assigned to you that people have to use for adding you to their friend's list

    you actually don't see it unless two people in the same game have the same name

    it's basically a system so everyone can get the name they want without making it like XXX__sephiroth__XXX

    instead for most of the time it would be sephiroth, and if people wanted to add you to their friend's list, you would just tell them your name is sephiroth.420

    Well this is the internet, I never expected exaggeration.

    If you are on the defensive, your going to need about a 2-1 ratio on lings to marines. If you have room for a surround, not so much.

    I couldn't put out more lings really, just didn't even have enough fucking larva.

    as soon as your spawning pool is done, hopefully (unless you are all in rushing with lings or something)

    the faster it comes, the better your economy will be

    There are already too many Protoss around here.

    We need more Zerg. When we did PA games in Phase 1 and 2 of the beta we only had 2 or 3 Zerg players.

    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?

    edit: I think I miss tier 1 hydras the most, that used to be the backbone of how I played zerg in SC1, early hydras.

    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"
    I mean, it's not super original but it's very well executed and loads of fun

    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.

    That makes sense, I guess I was over-thinking it since I'm used to hot keying production buildings for Terrans/Protoss.
