      Any other Starcraft 2 Players on DV?

      I've been Playing Starcraft 2 since release, I'm a big fan of Real time Strategy games, any other SC2 players?

      What's your Main Race?

      What league are you?

      Do you have a favorite tournament series to watch/favorite professional player?

      Personally I play Zerg, I was just a wee little bronze leaguer at the start, but after a lot of time watching tournaments and hours of practice I was able to fight my way up to Platinum league. It is still a personal life goal of mine to make it into Master league someday. Unfortunately it's unrealistic to strive for Grandmaster unless you are incredibly talented or are Korean .

      I was diamond zerg/protoss a while back, but don't play much SC2 anymore. LoL is more fun.

      I played LoL when it was released then quickly quit when HoN came out, then promptly quit then when Dota2 was released.

      Do you plan on taking another shot at SC2 next month when Heart of the Swarm expansion comes out?

      Anyone notice how the zerg sound like a really fat ugly lady having sex?

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      Haha I had never considered that exact sound. But the zerg sounds can be pretty disturbing if you pay a lot of attention to them :p

      Btw, I love the picture in your signature. It's awesome. Is it from anything?

      I played SC2 for a few days, but due my anxiety problems, I didn't go too far. Bronze league ended up with day scores of 9-2, but I just get so nervous I can't even queue for the next game. I heard other people have this problem, but for me it's just a nightmare and I ended up uninstalling the game.

      I played zerg btw, very big fan of mass roaches and baneling busts builds (although you don't really need specific builds to win at bronze levels ). And my fav player is probably Stephano, he's amazing

      I had this REALLY bad at first too. I felt so silly. I would sweat profusely and my heart beat really hard.

      I bet you watched a lot of pro matches didnt you? That was my problem. I wanted so hard to play like Dong Rae Gu, NesTea, Nerchio, and Stephano SO badly that I forgot that I never even played broodwar and couldnt expect to be anything but the worst

      After i stopped putting so much pressure on myself I had A LOT more fun. Once i had fun I relaxed, and once I relaxed I got so much better. I would recommend giving it a second try if you have the time. Most of getting good at startcraft is learning how to do multiple things at the same time, without forgetting. period. Thats why the best are the best. I never got THAT good, but I noticed my mental dexterity certainly increased after practicing for hours.

      I played a few matches last night and lost miserably on the first few, but to my surprise I actually beat a Diamond Terran.

      Starcraft MMO would be interesting. They were making a Starcraft First-person shooter that unfortunately got scrapped.

      I am definitely buying Heart of the Swarm, but I don't know if I'm going to climb the ladder again. I enjoyed SC2, but eventually it got sort of boring just doing the same thing over and over again. League has a lot more variation, and I generally like the teamwork.

      For me, I just played endlessly from day one, starting in silver. I pretty much skipped gold (played one match) and got thrown right into platinum. Then some weeks later I got into diamond. Being good at SC2 is certainly something you can brag about though, while being good at LoL is kind of uninteresting.

      Getting good at SC2 is VERY hard and takes a lot of dedication.

      MOBAs have a pretty steep learning curve, but once you get it down.. I duno, I just dont find the same amount of excitement in it.

      I'm looking forward to the new campaign especially since I play zerg (For the Swarm!). I'll definitely take a crack at the ladder, but I don't know if I will put the time and effort into it that I did with Wings of Liberty.

      It didn't take that much effort for me actually, somehow I am just naturally good at handling macro, and I have a fairly good game sense. If I put more effort into it, I'm pretty sure I could compete in tournaments, possibly even win some. There aren't that many good Danish players. I think when I start back up in university, I'm going to switch back to StarCraft II, since it generally consumes less time than League does.

      Starcraft and Broodwar consumed probably more than a healthy amount of my college years and I pre-ordered SC2. For that matter, SC2 was my main excuse for building a gaming rig, though my machine was ready more than a year before the game was. I was more a fan of the campaigns than multiplayer on SC/BW, and the Wings of Liberty campaign was pretty weak. The originals had a great sense of humor and a lot more personality, whereas WoL was just trying for epic everything and coming off kind of cheesy as a result. Still, they nailed matchmaking, which makes ladder a lot more accessible if you're willing to pick up at least a basic level of strategy (I'm not sure I ever accomplished even that much in Broodwar multiplayer).

      I've been on a little Civ V kick the last week or so and playing pinball on my tablet, but I've put in 64 SC2 ladder games this season, which is pretty active for me. At least 2 or 3 seasons I've skipped entirely. I'll usually go on a two or three week jag and then wander off doing other things, but I keep going back to it. It used to be I'd feel really rusty if I stopped playing for even a few days, but the last couple times I got right back into it. My first 50 matches were Random, but since then it's been Zerg all the way.
      If you have a sense of caring for others, you will manifest a kind of inner strength in spite of your own difficulties and problems. With this strength, your own problems will seem less significant and bothersome to you. By going beyond your own problems and taking care of others, you gain inner strength, self-confidence, courage, and a greater sense of calm.Dalai Lama

      I just patched to 2.0.x, and the new b-net UI is... quite good The 1.5 "arcade" redesign kind of blew IMO, but this one is much cleaner with more actual info and fewer clicks for most things.

      btw, scII lags like a nightmare on my computer even if I'm just up against 1 AI. But I can play WoW just fine. Is this an internet issue or a computer issue?

      Probably your computer. WoW will use some bandwidth, but it's an almost 10-year-old game that even then was designed to keep up a decent frame rate on any machine more powerful than a toaster oven. You could try turning the SC2 graphics settings way down, but even then if your CPU can't handle it, you're going to see some lag.

      Framerate issue. Not lag.

      World of Warcraft swallows up a lot more bandwidth than SC2.

      I played WOW on dialup up until around Wrath of the Lich King. Only problems I had were pvp greater than 15man, and 40 man raids.
