StarCraft® II

Nuclear Blast Zone Indicator.

On the ghost's nuclear blast zone indicator there's three sets of numbers, one to each end of the nuclear alert symbol:

007.U2.1701A

AD-73.10.10X

Chi.BRz.54.23

Now you Star Tweak fans will imediately recognize the first as containing the Enterprise's ship number. Along with it is the band U2 and James Bond's MI6 number.

The second is October 10th, 73 AD. I'm guessing that's the fall of Jerusalem by the Romans, though why October tenth is possibly an AVP movie reference.

But does anyone know what the third set of numbers is about...?

Awesome find! I've never even looked at the nuke indicator long enough to notice numbers, let alone decode them.

See, that's the problem. Sports bores me to tears [until seven figure earning players lose their $#!+ and start beating on each other]. I wonder which programmer decided to put that in.

My roommate and I both run SC2 on ultra settings and neither of us sees the red dot when someone else nukes. Anyone else run into that issue?

No idea what your problem is. I still see the dot and I run the ultra settings too.

Doesn't sound far fetched

I like to think that there was a group of people and they all got to pick something to put in the code.

--And that everyone made fun of the guy who picked U2.

Hey bud, I love starcraft, but it is in NO way a real sport. Sports require athleticism, SCII requires brains and quick reflexes. That's like saying chess is a real sport. It's also the reason they are called e-sports, and not just sports. No one who doesn't play (except maybe in Korea), or is closely affiliated with someone who plays, even remotely would consider this a sport.

You realize chess, poker, and fishing are all considered sports, right? Chess actually the most out of the three I mentioned seeing as it's recognized as a sport by the International Olympic Committee.

I make retarded assumptions about things I know nothing about in an attempt at sounding smart to my peers online.

It doesn't show the big indicator, only the small red dot. If your opponents are skilled nukers, they may have a targeting trick. I know that with I nuke vs. terran, there's a sweet spot on the side of the cc that hides the dot perfectly.


Ultra also has a lot of background detail that will wash out important things like the nuke dot and cloaked unit shimmers.

That writhing Zerg creep makes it almost impossible to see such shenanigans =\.
