    Pretty much everyone is playing protoss from all the streams I keep joining, kind of boring now

    Protoss were the easiest for me to get a handle on back when I played, so it's not too surprising to see them played the most. Zerg felt the most foreign, with Terran somewhere in between.

    For the record, Zerg was my race in SC1.

    for those wanting a nice hq stream

    edit: fixed

    Good stream but that website makes me angry: http://www.starcraftmethod.com/about
    Really? A 'premium' strategy site with pay-to-register before the game is even out? The fact that Husky (who I'm pretty sure is a well known commentator) is part of that is what makes it worse, other wise I wouldn't really take notice.

    Okay. So if I had the beta, and I'm not saying that I do... Am I allowed to talk about it? I don't see anything about a NDA or anything like that.

    So I can talk about this game right, if I'm in the beta? (Not that I am...)

    Alright then.

    Yeah so I'm in the beta, just got the e-mail.

    Holy shit why is Blizzard making me torrent to download the game? My internet is not set up to be great at uploading (we don't torrent). I'm downloading at a miserable 89 kbs... =/

    Is there a, you know, REAL SERVER that I can download from?

    Edit: Whoops. Okay, you can disable P2P downloading (thank heavens) in the downloader itself. Now it's downloading at a speedier pace.

    Really though

    How the fuck do you defend against that many banelings

    I guess you keep the pressure up so they can't throw that many at you at once, but still, Christ

    I still haven't gotten in the beta, but I can confirm that emails are still going out. One of my best buddies sent me a message on msn about 20 minutes ago and he was screaming with joy (in text) cause he got in. I'll be paying him a visit this weekend to check it out :P

    Nothing yet, and I had signed up for it the day it went live.

    Probably due to signing up for the Mac client, and it's not out yet.

    Banelings <3

    Also loving Brood Lords, way better than guardians. They shoot broodlings from distance which tie up ground units, they can still just manually target you, but they gotta get around all the broodlings first.

    Also you can group I think 120 units into the same group. Maybe 150.

    Yeah, it sucks. I've been a member of Blizzard Insider since its inception. I own every game of theirs, and I have an active WoW account that has been active for 100% of the time since launch. I kinda feel like at this point I should get access to all Blizzard betas based on my dedication.

    Oh snap. Literally as I was moping to my friend, who has the beta key guarantee of an invite, I got the email and began downloading. He hasn't, yet. God that felt good.

    Oh, and I saw that David Kim baneling manuever live on the stream, that was fucking ridiculous.

    watching the streams and contemplating it...

    i feel banelings are going to get balanced but as I'm seeing it they seem on the face a really powerful unit and if they needed balancing they would have already gotten it

    i dunno

    Its funny. Back when Warcraft 3 was coming out, I got a beta key but none of my friends did. We found an unofficial faux b.net that was hosted by a server that was titled "masturbatesfrequently.com." It was good times.

    I did good initially. When they announced it I was like "it's Blizzard so it'll be a million years so I'll just put it out of my mind."

    Then I made the mistake of watching a battle report about a week ago and sweet goddamn, I'm roped back in to the hype machine. :(

    Watching the 1up live stream recap, it feels like I'm looking at a parody. Everything is so ridiculously similar to the first game and dated, I keep expecting Blizzard to suddenly pull out a completely different SC2 and be like "Hah, you didn't think that was the real Starcraft 2, did you?".
