    I'll say yes, I don't have time to play much these days. I play Terran but plan on playing Protoss and Zerg as well.

    Unranked ATM.

    I suck balls at this game but want to play more. Pointers? Do you get better in MP by playing through the SP campaign?

    You sorta get better playing single player, but not really. You learn more doing the challenges. You will learn counters for certain units, etc. What really helped me become a good player was playing against the AI on 2v2 on medium difficulty. Teaches the basics. After 20 games of that, I was able to take on any gold player in 2v2.

    Well, if you want to improve your game, you should look at replays and see how the pros play. Usually, the opening few minutes is quite similar for all races: Terran will start with 1rack,1fac,1star or 3rack, building to 3rack,1fac,2star for bio build, Protoss will go for 2gate,1robo or 4gate, maybe a starport for lolvoidrays. Zerg is a bit more diverse, they can go for fast expo at 14drone or roach warren for timing pushes, or baneling bust, etc.

    Learn to use your hoytkeys, they are so important when playing SC2. Practice using them to build everything in SP. I recommend choosing the Grid layout in options to make the hotkeys the same across all 3 races.

    Is that the Bieber parody? That was actually pretty good.


    I went to buy it last night but could't pay via paypal. :( I'll pick up a box locally for $50 and just activate the key.

    Indeed it is! Starcraft 2 will be popular for the next 5 years, so Blizzard is milking every single dollar out of us :mad: Shame I will not be able to play with you Americans, because they region lock the copies too :mad::mad:

    I really need to update this more often, but there are few strategy gamers in this forum as it is and this is not encouraging me to update this as often as I wish.

    Go to www.teamliquid.net

    I consider that to be the best source for your SC related needs. Otherwise play through the single player, the challenges, and then watch replays and commentaries online. Pay attention to the strategy and the thought that goes behind them, read up on the game mechanics and unit counters/unit composition, etc.

    Day9 runs a SCII commentary thing online, you should check it out.


    Btw Op, add me please.

    Add me in. I was a 1v1 bronze because this was my first RTS game ever, but since then I've gotten a TON better playing 2's and I'm in 2v2 platinum with a diamond player. I would estimate myself as a Gold/Platinum 1v1 player at this point, but just don't play many 1's any more. I play random most of the time.

    Also,I would highly recommend watching these 5 videos (Grand finals of the recent Dreamhack SC2 tournament in Sweden. Winner received over $14,000 USD).

    Game 1: http://day9tv.blip.tv/file/4444676/
    Game 2: http://day9tv.blip.tv/file/4444662/
    Game 3: http://day9tv.blip.tv/file/4444658/
    Game 4: http://day9tv.blip.tv/file/4444652/
    Game 5: http://day9tv.blip.tv/file/4444650/
