    Good thing I never bothered even to touch the campaign :)

    You can check my stats, I think the only achievement I got from campaign is my friend fooling around.

    Don't worry, LotV is going to address that issue.

    Going to laugh if they bring the scourge back, which was essentially a flying baneling. Not like it matters, regular banes would kill your air units anyway.

    Problem is that is not going to be effective vs Terran or Protoss, but only in ZvZ matches, assuming they do only bio / light damage or whatnot.

    I remember them tearing my battlecruisers up in the original. Since they are taking away Terrans best muta weapon with only 1 thor allow, I want my splash damage Valkyries back DAMN IT!!!.

    Marines are nice, but it's so much easier to park a Thor in each mineral line. We will see on the Warhound.

    TBH marines are a better option. Mech is kinda immobile, and in higher level games the marines actually work better. You can stim and actually take out mutas while they fly away. Thors just kinda duck waddle.

    Not at all. If the muta player is any good. they just magic box and the thor is dead.

    Ye when you attack move with mutas, they clumb up resulting the Thor doing massive splash damage. The magic box is when you press "H" hold position when attacking so your mutas spread out, reducing the splash from thors.

    I am talking about in the later game where they have 15+. 4 missile turrets on the line and a thor pretty much make it muta proof. On top of that, the thor is mobile enough to defend the stuff outside of missile turrets range. They are also useful to park with your siege tanks to defend against mutas while the marines are out front.

    In open map combat, sure the marines are better, but when they are constantly harassing the mineral line, they are pretty worthless.

    Missile turrets, missile turrets! Get the armour upgrade and ~5 missile turrets your min line will be safe from any form of muta harrass ever, unless they made such a stupid amount that you can just 1aclick into their base.

    Broke top 8 1v1 Silver in my division last night. Went from ~80th place to 8th in a week.
    It's weird. I was having more trouble in the bronze leagues past two seasons than I am having in Silver.
    I am not any better, but my opponents seem easier. Maybe I lucked out and got put in a 'special' division. LOL.
    I'm on the SC2 Shortbus!! :D

    You will have to practice siege tank chess to be any good with it. I used to play bio vs T exclusively because I couldn't play siege tank chess properly, but right now my go to chart is : make more siege tanks than they do, if you cannot make some banshees and vikings for air control, but make sure you have enough siege tanks so that they cannot force their way through. Also, if there are more than 4 tanks sieged, DO NOT force your way in, nuke/banshee/things like that instead.

    Hey all Nvidia gamers, friendly reminder to update your drivers. Newer drivers are pulling better framerates in SC2. :)

    I ran into some asian assasin 2 or 3 times in a few hours. Dude had some sick mutalisk spam. Couldn't get anything going. Little fucker appeared everywhere my forces weren't.
    I guess that's the difference between a Gold player and a Bronze who lucked his way into Silver.
