Default Starcraft II

I'm rather surprised that there wasn't a thread on this game yet.

I have to say I've been looking forward to this game for awhile, but due to the long wait and not many updates as of late, the hype is starting to die off.

The big news right now is that Blizzcon will have so much information about Starcraft II and it may be the day that Blizzard releases the public beta of the game.
I do hope so, because it's been forever.

The current news on the games progress is that the game itself is prepared to play, it's perfect already. (as of two months ago)
However the Battle.net 2.0 servers are not configured to handle the load of 30,000 potential beta players.

Since they have been working on the servers for two months now, it has to be configured. Which is why many speculate that they are holding back until Blizzcon.

How have you guys been doing with the wait? Still hyped as before?

I've so far watched the battle reports. And I gotta say that I really feel like I'll suck if I decide to play this online. >_>

A friend wants me to get it so we can play while he's off at college.

Micromanagement makes me sad. :|

Play the custom maps then, that's where a majority of the replay value is!

And what, the game's already done but Battle.Net 2.0 isn't? That's......odd. But if that's true, then a 2009 release should be easy. How the hell can you take more than half a year to finish up an online network system? Unless they just developed SC2 without testing it...at all, or something.

It's true, that's what Dustin Browder said.

As for beta, it is expected to last 4~6 months, and in intervals of each country.
North America for so long, then Europe, then Korea.
If they intend to release it before Christmas, then they have to drop the beta time, and that could lead to an unbalanced or buggy game in the conclusion, as they want it perfect for the final release.

Yeah SC is still on my waiting list, though not one of the top few.

There were little updates on SCII, so I'd figured nothing much to post about it.

I feel Blizzard is sorta "trolling" by splitting SCII into 3 parts.

Still waiting, but I truthfully dont care that much right now. The less I care, the less anxious I am for them to hurry up and release lol.

Yeah its for the campaigns only.

But that means having to spend 3 times just to get everything.

Money-sucking tactics. And worse, no LAN. Big turnoff.

Think of the 3 games as Starcraft II and two expansion packs.
Also, having each story put on seperate disks, allows for more room for additional features.

For that reason, the 3 disks aren't a big deal, since they will take time to create the next expansion, and by that time you should be able to afford it.. heh

Also update from Blizzard today! (Finally)

We will share more details about the beta, Battle.net, and StarCraft II’s launch in the future. Keep an eye on the official website at StarCraft II for updates, and as always, thank you for your continued enthusiasm and support for StarCraft II and all of Blizzard Entertainment’s games.

I've been waiting for this game for such a long time. Admittedly, I'm not too great at micro-managing, so I'll probably die extremely fast if I ever play online >o>;; Game's looking good, though. I'm excited to explore new terrains!

Oh, and Kerrigan's hot ;o

A lot of macro has been improved, and many fear that it's going to be more macro heavy then micro.
But we will see in beta.

Those who haven't kept up with the news of Starcraft, should know that the Beta is this month, with the beta forums up and running, waiting to go.

What day it begins still isn't clear, but at least Blizzard gave us a confirmed date of this month.

The battle.net feature which is required to play the beta has had it's info released a week or so ago.
StarCraft II

Looks promising.

Blizzard has also made it clear that everyone around the globe will have the chance to play, and it won't be done as a country to country cycle as planned before.

Although I'm relying on pure luck to get me in, I don't mind watching vids.
Rather not spend 100$ on a key.

Protoss Music is great
Zerg music is good
Terran music is wtf?

It's country music of the terrans, doesn't seem fitting at all.

The announcer for each race sounds great, the Zerg announcer is excellent.
