Patch 1.1 Preview:
http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/blog/692221

for those who TL;DR.

-Chatrooms
-Protoss warpgate/zealot time increase
-Terran siege tank damage nerf, reaper nerf


Kinda bummed about the warpgate time increase but it's all good, just won't be able to 4 gate as hard now but thats better for zerg I guess. I don't mind the zealot time increase since I lost to a 2 gate proxy twice PvP.

Where's the marauder nerf man? They're way too good early game.

Marauder nerf came in beta upgrading the shells instead of it coming standard out the barracks. The Siege Tank nerf was definitely needed, 5-6 on the field was a huge mess for any ground army. You were lucky to kill their front line and still have something left for tanks.

I imagine this is also just a preliminary thing they're looking at and there will be some mineral/gas adjustments too. I am wondering if theyre looking at void rays and perhaps a hydra speed upgrade.

Anything is really easy to "transition" to if you're willing to put in the effort to become better and understand mechanics, strategy and your specific races greatness/weakness.

the very reason why i have been playing my worst race exclusively, terran. found a strat i like and it works fine. the 1-1-1 is so flexible but i usually go 2-1-1 to start then add as necessary

Been playing SC2 on my cousin's computer lately, but they need to release the other 2/3 of the game! I enjoy playing multiplayer as much as campaign so can't wait til they have a release date for the other two games.

GSL matches are insane.

SKSS(tester) vs JSL match was alone worth the 20 dollars.

Starcraft runs so slow on my computer.
What's a good video card that lets it run smoothly on low or medium settings under $150?

Starcraft ll HB Tournament
I'm pretty sure there are enough avid players to throw one. Any of you guys down? We can construct the brackets according to league and rank. The prize would be free rep from the loser.>smhsmokeyfacesmokeyface

Yeah, I don't even get their ranking system. I think its based off how many wins you have since losses don't really effect your ranking that much. I'm platinum too and it seems like most of the diamond players I've played have played a shitload of games like 100-200+.

1-1-1 build has many variations nowadays. The most common and popular one is

9 depot
11 barrack
13 gas
15 orbital

You're pumping marines as the gas for factory is coming up, building a factory while pumping marines.
At this point a 5 roach rush can occur, so you can build one tank, no siege mode + pumping marines.

Once you have the gas again to build a starport, make sure youre building a tech lab on your factory and just lift up and switch it with the starport and begin making banshee/viking depending on your hard counter/race.

This all depends on what you scout, if youre just doing a blind 1-1-1 it'll most likely fail unless you scout void rays or any rushes. After the scout just counter accordingly.

The weakest part of this build is factory to starport as protoss (4-gates) and zerg (baneling bust+more than 5 roaches) will do a lot of damage causing you to be on the defensive or lose.

1-1-1 you can do whatever you want, just remember if youre cutting SCVs youre playing an all-in game and probably dont plan to expand, but if youre forseeing a longer game continue to make scvs so you have enough to transfer to your natural.

Good luck and play around with different units for the 1-1-1 as what I have said is the most common build, you can even forgo the tank and get a hellion to harass and get banshee to follow up.

Scout, counter, win.

haha, i suck at harassing. most i've ever done was basically just build a refinery at my enemies natural (protoss).

any tips against zerg? i've been talkin so much shit to my friend for like months (zerg). i usually do 1 rack fe, 3m. but i heard that zerg is weaker against mech and fast expanding against zerg is bad.

best strat as Terran vs Toss is to go Goliath.... I usually start with the normal 1-1-1 build except instead of making the tank, i build the armory and pump out a helion. also build a second rax. once the armory is done, i then build the starport and since u have the gas, i build my first goliath. then i drop the goliath in the mineral field of the toss, kill as many before any attacking units come, then go to their exp and do the same. its not a hard strat to do.
