I would really appreciate a Terran overview next! Thanks Lore! These vids are awesome, especially for someone not in the Beta, but looking forward to the release.

I would have said Terran but Zerg look amazing art-wise in this video, so I'd like to see more of them.

Zerg do look amazing, just never really liked them myself. Just a opinion thing. :)

I may have to pick this game up when its available. I really like the look of it. Seems like the UI may be a little to large. Is there a way to alter that so you have more battle field view? or is that hard coded?

I originally started PC gaming with the original command and conquer. I played it through several expansions up to Yuri's Revenge, at which point the PvP online play was dominated by hacks which made it unplayable.

I'm assuming there are anit-hack checks implemented for this though?

Anyway thanks for sharing Lore.

The donor link points to the wrong video.

I believe in SC2 that the max amount of Interceptors was 8, so if you said that the maximum was reduced to 8... :confused:

I was playing around with zerg over the weekend, and I do have to say that they look excellent. Havent had a chance to play with terran or protoss yet (will soon), but zerg definately have the organic thing down. This is especially true for their new building animations and the queen.

Zerg, just because they had gotten the least coverage for so long on the StarCraft site.

They look nice if you can see them, makes it hard to play when I have to go on a treasure hunt to find some specific unit amongs the big brown mass, especially when they're standing on creep and amongst zerg buildings.

Lore, what's your take on Warpgate vs. Gateway.

I've only recently started upgrading to warpgates, and although i like the "instant" warping of units, I find not being able to queue up units a big problem to me. I guess maybe when micro'ing turn on warpgates and being on the offensive to port in units faster, but when macro'ing switch back to gateways?>

I haven't found it very difficult to micro the warpgates. You can press W to select all of them if you hadn't noticed.

Besides, the speed they warp in units (it's 10 seconds faster) means that even if you spend like 20 seconds not warping anything in, you're still saving time over the 2 units you could have queued (and spent 60+ seconds waiting on).

true, i guess warp gates are the key and i need to just keep watch over them

and W? wtf i've been binding all my gates to 5 =P

Could we see Zerg next? im new to Starcraft and planning on picking those up. Or perhaps you could cover protoss buildings/upgrades?

Lack of queue'ing with Warp Gates can be a good reminder of how to efficiently spend resources. Even if there are 5 slots for a queue, if you are using 3 or more of those slots, that usually means you should have another production building instead.

I've always been a Terran fan in Starcraft so I'm going to have to say I want to see some ghosts nuking someone!!!!

Kazeyonoma

ghost nukes are awesome, they're fun, and they're a lot cheaper than before, but they also aren't as devastating =T

I'm sort of leaning towards Zerg myself. I know roaches are OP right now, and it overshadows the awesomeness of later tier units. What's really strange is that Zerg don't need many hatcheries - the Queen can bounce between the main and expansion and chain spawn larva almost continuously. Only drawback is that with all unit production centralized, losing a hatchery is devastating. Also wanted to point out Ultralisks - 600HP and 75 upgraded damage vs buildings. Wow.

Roaches are not OP.

Massed Roaches will kill any T1 units fairly easily. That doesn't make them OP though.

Lore

Yeah the "problem" with Roaches is just that most players haven't figured out:

1) Early/constant scouting
2) The counter for their chosen race (Protoss in particular has a few options)

I suspect we'll see a Roach nerf at some point just so lower-tier games don't become "Whoever picks Zerg and builds lots of Roaches first wins" as those players aren't likely to pick up on things. It could be that their introductory "challenge mode" will teach players to scout though, which makes Roaches pretty tame.

Warp Gates also prevent you from getting into the bad habit of queueing up units and therefore giving you the illusion of good macro. (High money = wasted money, queueing up units = extra gateway/warpgates generally)

Hi Lore,

I am also on the SC2 beta as Caenn.Caenn if you want to add me to your friends list lol it can get boring only playing 1v1. I too am primarily a toss player. Roaches are really only super effective against toss as most terran players tend to wall. However immortals, sentries with zlots, or speed dark templars are all easy counters for these units, as well as placing a few cannons near your choke. Either way i enjoy watching your series and would actually prefer to see terran over zerg.

As for warpgate over gateway unless you are using the build 2 gateways in the center zlot rush strat for toss on toss a good toss player should always go warpgate. You can use your chrono boost to speed up the cool down on the warp in for an fyi.

Hope to see you on bnet,

Caenn

For some reason every time I go random I draw zerg. I still don't know that much about optimal unit comps, so I just tend to build a mix of ground units, with the occasional mass mutas. I found corruptors a little weak, but brood lords are very powerul. And I'm always limited by gas and have extra minerals lying around almost all the time. I also try not to build too many roaches and get stuck in lower tiers for too long. They do a lot of damage, but I still <3 hydras.

My handle is Odin.kaminari if you wanna meet up or something.

He says in the first 15 seconds of the video that his Starcraft videos are biweekly.

I'd like to see Zerg next personally the units look cooler. Yes also including the building changes would be wonderful.
