    Yeah, PvT is this bizarre flipflop from how it used to be. It used to be T's goal was to come out the gate swinging and try to constantly trade to keep the game in a low tech state. Now the P has strong pressure options and easy greed with pylon cannon, while T has the superior late game tech.

    Just finished the 3 lead-in missions to the actual campaign. Man, I really hope they introduce a "fun" Protoss character, because if it's 20+ missions of "For Honor!" and "We're so single-minded and boring!" then things will get dull quick. That's why the Terran are so much fun. Will screw each other over for a buck. Plus they had a jukebox playing awesome music. :)

    There's Alarak, aka Darth Protoss. I know some people found him tropey, but I liked that he was so unapologetically selfish.

    Even his motive for killing Amon isn't "this dude is a problem for everyone including me", it's "this guy misled me indirectly and I'm going to make him pay".

    ultras :(

    the worst part, just above them being so hard to kill, is that the scrappy way the lategame used to go sometimes is totally dead. there used to be a bunch of little pockets of MMM microing against things all over the map but you really can't against ultras. or you can you just never actually kill them unless your force was already overwhelming.

    bleeeeeh. I know there are tech options and I'm working at finding the right way to balance the necessary units, which work better for me, etc. they are just really hard to kill still!

    edit - I also get that it was super annoying to have mmm killing ultras. if you're a disgusting zerg I mean.

    @Variable

    I am slowly learning the new units and shaking off my rust.

    Placed into Gold, then got some build practice the other night while @Invictus handled the micro in archon games.

    I noticed a little while ago that you were playing a ladder game, which inspired me to hop out of HotS and into SC2.

    Had an action-packed macro ZvP. Eventually wore the guy down with lots of ravagers.

    Turns out he's Diamond, which makes me feel better about how tiring and difficult that game was.

    Yeah sad as it is to say, as she's one of my favourite players, Scarlett hasn't been close to being a top tier player in the last ~12 months. She's simply found better or more important things to do than grind sc2 for 10 hours a day I guess, and I wish her the best with those.

    Not quite. They did not acquire the personnel; just the literal things. But as I understand it, that includes things like the Columbus Arena.

    I've finally gotten back into the campaign! :) I gave up on it, 8-10 missions in, since I'm so goddamn shit with protoss, but I've finally gotten the void rays and, hell, let the A-moving commence! I giggled a little when this tooltip showed up during a map load:
    The most powerful army is made from a variety of units that can cover each other's weaknesses.
    NOEP

    All ray, erry day!

    yeah, I've run with the aoe voidrays up until now but on the last mission I notice that the aoe-beams doesn't even make a dent in ling hp bars. :/
    Probably better to go with the templar rays, no?

    The old campaigns you could replay archive missions using all your "current" unlocks, but I've heard something about replaying LotV missions resets your solar upgrades to the point where you're at after the mission in question?
    Edit: Ok, you don't have shit for solarite in the master archives, that's nice...
    Edit2: Wait, what the fuck? You unlock solarite in mission archives by doing sidequests while replaying mission accessed from the archives, but you start at the basic solarite you'd have from just copmleting missions up to that point? That's not clunky at all...

    It's a bug, per the Blizzard forums.

    In other excellent Blizzard game handling news, coop maps can't be completed right now. When the last objective's been cleared the "victory" screen never pops up, game just keeps going. ^^
    Edit: Restarting the game seems to have cleared that up for us but we played two matches before that with just the same result. :/ And since all blizzard games are centralized server-only nowadays...

    Having it on only twice a week is a much better schedule than the daily barrage we used to get back in the early days.

    And WAY better than the intermittent weekend tournaments where you get INUNDATED with Starcraft for a weekend and then nothing for months.

    Motherfucking Dark, infestors and ultras (aside from the ubiquitous roaches and ravagers) out at 9 minutes. Who'd imagine that a year ago?
    Those early infestors actually seem like quite the ace up the sleeve with those ravagers?
