    Looks like it's time to take a break from skyrim and get schooled by everyone in sc2 again.

    I have only seen you on customs lately :shadedshu

    The best way to get to diamond (and anyone can do it) is the 3-rax marine rush.

    It is an all-in, and can even punish masters/GM players if they make a single mistake in scouting.

    You dirty cheeser! IdrA always has some nice roach rushes, any form of rush tends to work in bronze, and for the few years i played, you could steamroll into gold without much effort! Just practice your bumrushing on an insane zerg AI.
    I dont intend to return to the SC2 scene myself though xD i always preferred the custom games anyway

    You will get stuck there. I like marine rushes but the 3rax is pretty easy to blind counter if you are at diamond level since quite a few people do it.

    I can verify that it will bring you to diamond. I verified that to prove how broken marines were (and still are, in certain scenarios if you let it happen).

    Made it from silver to diamond just doing that in my first 40 Terran games. By the time I got to diamond, I was winning atleast 50 percent of my games. this was about a year and a half ago.

    Before I quit I was playing against half masters and half diamond players, but not breaking into masters. The account was FTSz.

    join us for team monobattles one day. its quite educational as to unique strats for the units, while also avoiding the whole 'rush RUSH RUUUUSSSSHHHHH' mentality on ladder.

    Anyone liking the new 1v1 maps? Think they're great so far. Just wish they would remove condemned ridge already.

    Loving it so far. Playing on NA atm and waiting for patch to be out for EU. Definitely a breath of fresh air for WoL. Should of been released earlier in my opinion, but better late than never.

    And you know what's great? If people end up hating HoTs, they can always come back to WoL. Practically the same now without the new units and campaign.

    Also glad to report that I'm not getting any lag like how a lot of people are reporting.

    new UI is good. seems to be designed to help out new players more than the pros, but even im finding out i never have the right amount of workers.


    also not getting any of the lag i saw reported on battle.net.

    new AI is a lot smarter, you cant trick them so easily. 10 mutas vs 5 marines turned into a loss for me with the AI precisely uses stims on some marines at a time, and a point defense drone from a raven that wasnt in the initial fight. and thats just a hard AI.

    just destroyed one of the new elite AI's. (with some random dude. he was ok, but i basically won it 2v1 while he defended the base)

    its amazing how good me and JC have gotten in the last year or so, playing monobattles :/

    Anyone preorder Heart of the Swarm? I'm not sure I want to order it unless the Multiplayer scene on Wing of Liberty just drops off the map.

    i've preordered HotS collectors edition, and going to the launch event here in melbourne.

    i get to pick the game up from there, and get it signed by as yet unknown starcraft/blizzard 'celebrities'
