    I pre ordered it! I can't wait to get my dirty hands on it! Too bad I have to wait for UPS to deliver it (which is usually around 5-7 pm)

    If you pre-ordered, did you get access to the Beta?

    Me too, though I am going to wait for all three games to be released into one nice big box set and save a load of money.

    no, i only just pre ordered it.


    the games are best bought as they're discounted - IIRC SC2 is only $20 in the USA atm, straight from blizzard. lot of gameplay for such a cheap price.

    You realize that might not be for another 2-3 years?

    HotS took 2.5 and it's likely the Protoss based will take another.

    Where will you be in 5 years? Playing a game from 2010?


    Your right, it's a ton of gameplay. Sadly, some people just dont like this particular type.

    I grew up with side-scrollers, action adventure and Quest based, but mostly fps. For me it took some time to really enjoy SC2. I tried a couple other RTS's and absolutely didn't like them as much as I do SC2.

    HELL YES I WILL, the best games were made in before 2003 anyway. :p

    Will get HotS when I have a computer that can play it properly. So it'll be a while. It doesn't matter much though.

    I love the C&C series for a few hours at a time and I like the old Star Craft also. Its just after a while when it becomes to hard they make me feel stupid so I stop playing. :laugh:

    its worth noting that blizzard just removed the region restrictions to SCII, so now anyone can swap region to region. Eu players can move to NA, and so on. you get seperate stats/accounts and so on, but no more need to buy multiple accounts.


    mailman: SCII is designed to scale difficulty automatically to match you. ladder and coop vs AI both do that now. if you suck at the SP, just youtube how to do it, or lower the difficulty (if you lose a mission, you get the option to replay at an easier setting)

    Just ordered a copy of Heart of the swarm, should be here in a few days with a few more goodies.
    Might only play the campaign, when I am in the mood for strategy games I've been playing DOTA 2 lately.

    i've made a TPU 'group' in SCII/HotS.


    anyone from TPU can join, just search for it. will help coordinate games.


    Im not sure if its regional, if it is, its on NA.

    I have the Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos Collectors' Edition scattered all over the place. It's cool but I can save the room and money by not getting collectors' editions. I'm perfectly happy with the regular Heart of the Swarm. Once again finished the campaign in 2 days though. I liked it but it felt short, like the campaign before it.

    I guess It's time for me to join! I have had the game since launch but I am so horrible I got discouraged and stopped playing. However I have been good at strategy games before so I know if I just spend some time I will get it.

    I don't do much multiplayer yet ... as i said i'm horrible ;) but as i get practice in I will definitely be joining you guys :) Any tips or tricks would be appreciated though I know google is plentiful, there is honestly too much information to sit down and absorb in one go. that's what makes it fun right ;)

    play with us, get in the teamspeak (i'll give details only to people who actually play with us to prevent trolls), and we'll abuse you with tips and tricks.

    campaign wont teach you how to play MP, but it WILL teach you controls and such.

    do the challenges and do some vs AI fights.

    we usually play from the time of this post, back about 2 hours til now.
