The battle report was good, there are still things to do or to improve(death animations, building animations like the hatchery), but they showed some interesting things...like nighthawk design(and that imba missile), I can wait to see another one :oex:

I don't know if the missile was imba... the Zerg clearly screwed up by not teching while it had the advantage...

and there's always something that can be improved... the game still looked more finished then a lot of ones that come out from other companies...

my only problem is with the Spine Crawlers attack animation... looks too puny.

Well more chances the better. Try a different name, and perhaps when you get 2 beta keys, you give one to me, we got a deal? The I can give you some keys from Blizzard games you need ;)... this feels like selling my soul to the devil :P

Battle Report III is out!! See it Here
Zerg vs Prottoss(obvious), wasn't bad, but as always there were lot of units missing...
Btw, they released it only 1 week after announcing it on the forums, unlike the 4 months of last one....
The beta is near :-D

Don't worry, many koreans will kick him in the first week :D

And now sth reeeaaally important, Many fansites has come to Blizzard to interview the developers, probably play and test the current build of the game, and seeing Battlenet 2.0. And there is a NDA(Non-Discolsure Agreement) applied for the Blizzard HQ visit, so any information from there will be available next Monday.

And it can be beta, since if you own a battle.net account and log in either on http://kr.battle.net/ or http://us.battle.net/ you will see a scII beta icon just beside the beta profile configuration. However, on http://eu.battle.net/ I can't see it.

Anyway, is summer :-D

Starcraft 2 is a game me and pal waits eagerly for. Its interesting that the first of the trilogy are only based around the Terrans with mini missions for the other, a new, fresh way of bonding backstories and Starcraft history together. Wonder what the Xel Naga will do about the humans though...
Also the more open gameplay and choice of missions, equipment like units, buildings and upg are really welcome IMO.

I know people that are angry about the lack of LAN play in it. I'm not sure if I'd pick it up either if I have to wind up buying 3 copies of it.

Well this is totally unsurprising: http://forums.battle.net/thread.html?to ... 6&sid=3000

Over the past couple of weeks, it has become clear that it will take longer than expected to prepare the new Battle.net for the launch of the game. The upgraded Battle.net is an integral part of the StarCraft II experience and will be an essential part of all of our games moving forward. This extra development time will be critical to help us realize our vision for the service.

Our mission is to develop games that deliver an epic entertainment experience. As part of that commitment, we will always take as much time as needed to ensure that our games and services meet the expectations of our players and the standard for quality that we set for ourselves as developers. As we work to make Battle.net the premier online gaming destination, we’ll also continue to polish and refine StarCraft II, and we look forward to delivering a real-time strategy gaming experience worthy of the series’ legacy in the first half of 2010.

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 http://www.starcraft2.com for updates, and as always, thank you for your continued enthusiasm and support for StarCraft II and all of Blizzard Entertainment’s games.



Oh well, maybe i'll get the chance to study for my exams now...
