    Not much to say other w00t and they better not mess it up (luckily Blizzard is good about releasing quality). ^^

    I have been contacting some inverters, and some shop owners, a realistic date for it would be one year from now.
    I regret everything :P

    They have the money to sit on this until they are certain it's Robot Jeebus Good. Which is exactly what they will do. Starcraft is still played like crazy sauce in Asia in major competitive environments. Blizzard will sit on Starcraft 2 until it's not just good enough to release, but also good enough to replace it's predecessor as a tournament game.

    Which is good news. Better games are win!

    I still play 'ole Crafty from time to time. Lots of fun. My favorite faction was always the Terran. There's just something so satisfying about dropping a nuke on your enemy's base or deploying the Yamato Cannon.

    protoss all the way. templar storm to soften them up, then have them all merge to archons to distract them while the carriers and scouts fly in. if it's brood wars, take over one of their builder units, and then kill them with their own races forces. ^^

    I am a terran guy, but the mind control of the dark archons is really cool, specially if you capture a SCV or its zerg equivalent.

    I'm a Protoss fan. In competition or multi-player I typically play terran to stay on the low end of resource usage, though.

    My favorite tactic: Endless waves of marines. Nothing but marines. The genocide is hilarious.



    In other news: They are releasing SCII in a three-pack format. One for each race. Very lame.

    It is only the story mode that is the 3 part release. All races will be playable for multiplayer from either and all boxes.

    As one who only plays SC for the storymode (multiplayer an exercise in frustration & inevitable doom)...not so great news.

    Any details on how that 3 part release will work?

    Quite possibly my very favorite unit. Ranged ground-to-ground and ground-to-air in one, cheap unit. Combine with stimpaks and Medics and you've got a good time ahead of you.

    Lurkers were also a lot of fun, but useless against air units.

    I also liked Siege Tanks, but again...no ground-to-air capability.

    While this is true, some people fear that if you do not have the second two boxes you will not be able to play the "special units" released with each box.

    I hope that Blizzard is wise enough to realize people don't want to pay 150 for a game they're only going to play online. I hope that they allow multiplayer to work no matter what you have.

    They will release one, wait a few months, release another, etc. Think of it as an expansion pack. I believe it goes Human, Toss, Zerg. Don't quote me on that though. Check their site. Also, the first one is slated for Feb and is on bestbuy's website, so you can easily see which is first.

    It has been confirmed that SCII will have hero units. However, hero units will only be available in UMS (user map settings). Because of this, they will not enter the story-mode and will not be in any Blizzard-released map unless clearly stated. Expect to see them heavily in UMS, though.

    If you want to see what gameplay is like, go check out the SCII Battle Report. It shows a skirmish between two devs in Alpha stage and has two reporters from Blizzard talking through the whole thing. It's great. I know that there is destructible terrain, many new units, high yeild minerals (either high yeild in that they have a lot of minerals or that they supply minerals faster, I haven't figured that out yet), and some other cool things.

    Lurkers were my sworn enemy. They took out legions of my marines at a time. Also, the templar wrecked me. No good. Seige tanks are nice but I prefer the Goliath. Much more manueverable and easier to take care of. I almost never used stimpaks and the majority of my fun came from Original, so no medics for me.
