T.T if anyone has pre-ordered SC2 but already had the beta.. hook me up lol. can't get to a store till friday and they'll be out by then.
i convinced my friend to let me use his account while he's grounded for a few days though, so if anyone wants to practice with me i think his thing is lucky.wassabi
when/if i get a beta key (>.<) my name will be tehPyro.ppga (or whatever else for identifier.. if i use something else i'll just edit this)

I just got the beta from gamestop and I was wondering if anyone had any tips for a beginner at starcraft. I have played a couple rts games before like starcraft 1, cnc3, and warcraft 3 but i can not move up from copper league. This game is awesome and i want to get better so i can beat my friend.

Just understand that the "real" game being played is of economy. Pretty much, never ever stop making drones/scvs/probes. When you build an expansion, transfer some of the workers to the new base so you get the extra money asap. You never want to have money saved up, because it does no good. You want that money spent as soon as you get it. If you find yourself ever having more than 500 minerals/gas, build another barracks/factory/gateway/hatchery/whatever so you can get more units quicker.

You also want to get away with everything you can if you can help it. If you hold off an attack with 1 unit, that is perfect, because all that money you didn't spend on extra units went to something more worthwhile. You never want to make turrets/cannons until you absolutely have to. Never build too many, because a large army accomplishes the same thing as defensive structures, except armies can move and attack.

I just fucking realized tonight that they're doing this pre-order in exchange for beta key. Thank god I live in a pc-gaming challenged city and there might actually be some keys left. If there isn't any left, by the power of Thor I'll be an angry nerd.

At least it makes sense now why they won't give me a damn key...

Just wondering how many people are using the HP bars?

Personally I use it becuase it makes microing a little easier knowing their hp all the time, but I know that people that played sc:bw don't use it since I don't think that it had the technology at the time or the patch was late and people just got used to not using the hp bars or something.


So do you guys use it or not?


Also up until awile ago i thought that there were only 4 leagues those being platinum, gold, silver, bronze. Then I read here that there was copper icon_surprised.gif And that there are subdivisions under it icon_surprised.gif Anyone got more specific info?

5 leagues, each split into divisions of around 100.

that is stupid, ive spent over £200 on wow shit and im not able to opt in for beta because i realized how shit wow is? lol ok


nono dude, you need 1 game that you activated via cd key. So you dont need to be active in wow. My one game is starcraft 1. I think if you register your wow then you can use it if you purchased it retail

Are you playing one army in particular?

with toss, how many probes should i build before i start building my first pylon? my current start is to build 9, build pylon, mine some more, keep building probes, build pylon, gateway, 3 zealots, attack, build cybernetics core, (keep building probes this WHOLE time), build stalkers, expand, build pylon at exp, build star gate at exp, start making void rays, and around this point i start expanding more. i mostly just use void rays and stalkers with a hint of zealots.

I think 9 is generally considered sensible.

Success! A friend of mine who works at EB got an extra key, and is going to send me it tomorrow! I'll finally be rocking this Beta! Apparently posting 'cry me a river' facebook status' can get you somewhere in life.

Edit: If I do still end up pre-ordering this game and getting a key I'll give my key to a schmuck on this forum.
