    so, why does almost no one use hydras anymore? Are they just like, not all that good or something?

    They've never been that popular except ages ago in ZvP. They are just not very good against Terran, too easily countered by Colossi and storm, and often end up being too expensive to get early on in ZvZ (though they do show up for anti-muta builds or to compliment roach/infestor). It's just that they cost 50 gas which is way better spent on pretty much any other unit, especially infestors.

    the problem with hydras is that while they do a lot of dps, they have low health and are real slow off creep, meaning aoe just destroys em

    in zvp they can have some use against gateway/immortal compositions, but as soon as the opponent gets collosus hydras just become irrelevant, and orach/hydra/corruptor has been almost entirely given up on as a viable composition

    in zvz they can be added in to roach based compositions, as their extra dps + increased range (compared to a roach) means you can have a line of roaches firing, and then a line of hydras behind, and as the roaches are absorbing the damage the low health of hydralisks isn't a problem

    however, hydras are expensive, and as such a player with a pure roach based composition can often have a timing where he can just overwhelm with sheer numbers

    in hots you can upgrade hydra speed at hive tech, whether this actually affects anything is yet to be seen really, but i doubt it

    Viper hydra seems like it could be pretty strong against toss.

    Pretty good. Game 1 was awesome, if a bit anticlimactic. The other 2 games were solid, fairly even TvZ, which is the most entertaining thing in SC2.

    yeah but even though stephano got a #2 seed, he's up against nightend with a #1 seed, which probably doesn't make nightend all that excited about tomorrow. :(
    And then poor Bly is up against Taeja. I've never heard of him, but he's cute, so I'm sad.

    I have work in the AM so I'm really hoping day2 of dreamhack lasts more than 8 hours or I'm gonna miss the finals.

    on the plus side, if taeja and stephano meet it will be the finals, so as long as it lasts long enough I'll get to see them. it certainly could last that long, lots of games to get through... and day1 was about 12 hours.

    I'll catch a couple of games throughout the day too

    I don't have experience with this kind of thing, but my best guess would be... maybe? Can't imagine it would make things nicer for the guy though.

    DH has a quarter finals that is all 1 Korean vs 1 foreigner. I'm gonna say after this round, it'll be 2 of each left. That's my guess.

    I'm not the first to say it, nor I'm sure will I be the last -

    But the fact that I can't fire up SC2 and get a link on the splash page to commentated spectator-view or commentated replays of huge tournaments like DH is killing eSports™.

    Okay guys so I bought an EU version of SC2 last night, but nowhere is it letting me switch the region when I log in. What exactly do I need to be doing to get into the EU account I just bought?

    you need to either use a relocalizer

    http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=357860

    or download the eu version of sc2, which you can do on b.net from whatever account you have an eu license on
