I am so happy! It's about time! Saw the news on shoutwire, and had to investigate. been watching all the videos, and it looks totally awesome. Needless to say, I'll be getting this. Anyone else? Lol, maybe we'll actually start a romnation guild this time.

i just hope its not gonna be like STARCRAFT 1 where its basically the attack styles were pretty much like "revolutionary war" where one guy attacks then the other attcks... and basically the only thing that counts is rate of fire and damage... and who ever has the biggest army of the biggest creatures.... cos i remember playing it and i went with PROTOSS against another PROTOSS... we both fully upgraded our ZEALOTS and went at it and it pretty much panned out... i hope they get the C&C style where u actually can COUNTER units.. like Rifle troops can take out infantry no-prob.. Bazooka troops take out tanks.. and so on..

They pretty much did have it like that though. I mean, Corsairs and Valkyries could take out other units no problem. Firebats could take out other early ground units no problem. In all honesty, I entirely hope its like the first one, because I think they did an excellent job of balancing out all the races.

Anyone seen the new game play trailers and everything? Man, I think using the protoss is gonna rock even more than it did. With the new drop ships being able to act as pylons and with these new Colossus units. Also the new terran units with jet packs look awesome. They're able to jump up and down ledges. Say 'No!' to going around!

well ok yes htere was that... BUT im talking about something like this: you have 10 MARINES and i have 10 MARINES both fully upgraded or even just starting out.. basically my 10 will shoot first then yours will shoot... basically what im getting at is its who ever get the first shot in wil win a fight... unless you have bigger/heavier units to either support or engage enemy forces...

Well even in command and conquer if you have two opposing forces with exactly the same units, and same number, of course the only variable is going to be who shoots first. Of course, in starcraft they have the ability to stim-pack, and you can always throw in a medic to throw the tide in one direction.

yes that too... but at the same time it always did constantly the same damage in STAR CRAFT wth each unit, basically lets just say that 3 TANKS equaled 10 MARINES and if they fough it'd be even...

where as lets say C&C i have 10 RIFLE's against 10 BAZOOKA troops... now the RIFLE's have a better chance of winning because they are designed to take out infantry... and BAZOOKA's are inaccurate against infantry... do u see where im going with this?

i liked C&C style games because there were character classes that forced u to actually counter other units... where as STARCRAFT was basically: who ever shot first with the biggest unit, heaviest gun and largest army, was going to win...

Im going to use a little C&C:GENERALS unit types in here: if you got a HUMMER and loaded it up with 3 BAZOOKA troops and 2 SNIPERS that lil hting can take on a larger tank as well as infantry... its only problem is maybe its armour not being up to snuff... where as in STARCRAFT its just upgrade-upgrade-upgrade... bigger badder units etc...

Basically all im trying to say is make STARCRAFT alittle more like C&C where u can counter more effectively with different units as opposed to having a "CIVIL WAR" style of battle, and yes i know some units in STARCRAFT had an added "SPLASH DAMAGE" happen but so did several C&C games.

heh bad example logan C&C Generals is completely unbalanced hell its one of the most unbalanced games i've ever played and boy did me an my friends play multiplayer alot Laser General my friends cousin always picked that didn't matter what u threw at him or any strategies u employed was damn near impossible to breach his defenses the lasers wiped everything out in a matter of seconds

Starcraft has always had the Rpg element to it take that away and its not starcraft anymore sure they expanded on that idea in Warcraft 3 but i didn't like it The gameplay trailer is fantastic stuff like I said to my mate the other day is it just me? or do Blizzard make the best cinematic scenes ever!!! he replied with a HELL YEAH! Smile

Gunner that would be cool if we could have a rn guild I lost my original starcraft cd ages ago


You know something funny a few days before starcraft 2 was announced I noticed Blizzard released a patch for starcraft and began to watch the site like a hawk hehe I knew they were up to something

It's obvious from your comments that your knowledge of starcraft's gameplay is too shallow. if not, you would have known that in starcraft unit counter is an essential element.

You would have known that marines are best countered by Zealots and that zealots have a hard time against goons, that siege tanks own goons, and zealots eat tanks, etc....

Moreso, there is a thing called micromanegement in starcraft where even with equal and identical unit encounters, the one who "pulls the trigger first" doesn't necessarily come out as the victor.

With proper micro and unit counters, your forces can take out an opposing force twice your size.

I've been playing Starcraft LAN games since it came out and had participated on 3 local tournaments. An average game for me would be 10 to 15 mins, so massing units till 200/200 supply is definitely not the best way to go. Only noobs play the massing strategy in Starcraft.

I agree that CC was super unbalanced. I even have the CC for XBox360 and that one is super unbalanced also. You can never play a multiplayer game and have a good fight with it. Starcraft 3 will rock if it's coming because blizzard has always been great at balancing games.
