I like how the unit they talked about "Reaper" isn't even a Zerg unit. So glad Blizzard is focusing on Terran units for the Zerg expansion. Will help fix the game.

HotS will have a separate ladder. (http://games.on.net/article/11645/Stratagems_Dustin_Browder_on_StarCraft_II?page=2) This implies the new units that come with HotS will be separate from WoL.


Heh, imagine if they were on the same ladder. Then HotS people would have extra units to fight the WoL people!

I have a question:

When the game comes out and i get it, how will it install on my computer? will it:

1: Be a small sort of thing that just alters the Wings of Liberty game already on the computer?
2: Be an entirely new game with a new... program or whatever, not sure how to word it.

In the case of #2, will i be able to uninstall Wings of Liberty in order to create space for Heart of the Swarm?

This will definetly not fit both...

Sir, this probally my favorite thread i have found on this forum, because most of the other ones are people complaining about how unbalanced this game is, (at least the ones i found) but thank you very much! <3 this!!!

Just one thing, when the Protoss expansion comes out, will there be 4 leagues then? because that will be extraordinarily lame. (4 because 1. with only WoL, 2. with HotS & WoL, 3. with WoL and the Protoss one, and 4. with all 3)

As best as I know, there will only be three:
WoL
WoL & HotS
WoL, HotS, LotV

Since the FAQ sates that HotS will require WoL, I presume LotV will require both.


Thanks for the sticky! =D


P.S: Is there any way to get a character limit increase? I hit the limit already, and I didn't reserve a post, either. =( EDIT: Never mind, found a temporary work around. Still might need it some time, though.

How about some tweaks to the carrier? If you leave it with a 120 second build time then at least up the interceptor count. Make it something to be feared, since they can't run from battlecruisers anymore and are toe-tagged with two yamato shots.

Another thing I heard about is that they are thinking of getting rid of the overseer and replacing it with a better unit.

There will definitely be some people hanging desperately on to their WoL ladder like level 70 WoW twinks or the British monarchy.


The British monarchy joke is hilarious!

Thank you! I actually meant that since you have to buy HotS you would have to buy "Legacy of the Void," (i think that is what it is called) and if some one hasn't bought HotS yet and they buy LotV, so there would be another league for people with only LotV (and Wol of course).

It isn't really important though, we will probally find out when it comes :)
Thanks for the info tho.

Yes, but what I meant is that LotV would require HotS. (as well as WoL)

This is wading deep into the well of speculation though, so don't take my word for it. :P
