if you baneling rush properly there is no way he can have a thor out in time.

honestly though, best counter is literally fast tech to lair with double gas and a 14pool 15 hatch, get infestor den AND hydra den as soon as lair finishes, then mind control thor and snipe the medivac. Played a top platinum player who tried the thor drop today, and completely raped him with this.


yea i really should scout better though. so dont expand until way later?

Make sure you go to 'add game' rather 'item code redemption'. I thought my key was too long too but it turned out i was entering it on the wrong screen. Oh boy you're going to feel silly if this is what you did icon_razz.gif

Nope, I tried both. It's about 15 characters too long for the item code redemption and 1 too long for the "add or upgrade a game".

I finally got a beta key from Amazon, but now the stupid blizzard downloader isn't downloading SC2. It's just stuck on 0% for as long as I wait. WTF?

After some googling I found out the downloader uses a peer-to-peer connection. My university blocks that sort of traffic. Lame that Blizzard doesn't (apparently?) offer any sort of direct download.

For the blizzard updated you can't change P2P settings on that, in fact I don't think it even uses P2P because the patches are hosted on their server or something, where as when you actually download the game you can choose P2P or not, I choose not to use P2P because I get 1mb/s whereas if I use P2P i get like 200 kb/s.

I'm running the updater and it's not downloading anything either. So I manually downloaded all the patches, and ran the updater, and it installed a bunch of them. It apparently stopped at version 14133, and now it won't install any more of them. I guess I should reinstall and then do the manual download AND manual installation of each patch? Such a hassle...

Yes, such a hassle because only asshole schools block peer to peer downloads.

I have the beta installed on my PC, but I don't know how to play, and I'm pretty bad at RTS (I don't play very often).
I'm nervous, I don't just wanna login and waste someone elses time, because they aren't gonna have any fun kicking my ass.

What do I do.

You play the game online against opponents of higher level skill than you, analyse your own and others replays, and get better at the game.

You could have a few goes against the CPU, its set to very easy so they will rarely attack you so you can practice with units and try out things etc.
