StarCraft® II

Choose My Fate.

So I did all the custom challenges, Beat brutal, beat brutal with marines only (Starting units and buildings allowed) Casual without making a single unit, Hurry Up It's Raid Night via Brutal.

So I came up with a new challenge. You Choose what upgrades and research I get. Keep in mind, I want to use all the money I get. So no "No upgrades and no mercs" or whatever. I will play it on Hard difficulty cuz Brutal is damn near impossible without the necessary upgrades.

So choose my tech path, my mercs, upgrades and mission paths. Hell..Even go so far as to what missions you want me to do if you want.

Choose my fate!

Hmmm....

It' hard for me to come up with something... I'm so used to my favorites. As far as Research Upgrades go...

I could only start to make suggestions about favoring specific units...

For instance, I rarely, if ever use Vultures & Hellions & Wraiths (save for "their" missions). I never get any of the Medivac or Thor upgrades either...

Maybe that's a place to start? Find what we don't usually use and go from there... You know if you try it, others may want too as well. Hahaha

Ok. I decided to try and make a list of the things you can select for me. Just copy and past and put an X near what you want me to do.

Protoss Research

Attack Speed [] Health Upgrade []

Micro Filtering [] Orbital Supply Depot []

Command Center Reactor [] Auto Refinery []

Science Vessel [] Raven []

Orbital Infantry [] Tech Reactor []
_______________________________________________

Zerg Research

Bunker Health [] Bunker Turret []

Planetary Fortress [] Flame Turrets []

Hercules [] Predator []

Cellular Reactor [] Bio Steel []

Psi Disrupter [] Hive Mind Emulator []
_____________________________________

Mercs
Devil Dogs []
Hammer Security[]
Hel's Angels []
Siege Breakers []
Dusk Wings []
Spartan Company []
Jacksons Revenge[]
_________________
Misc.

Ghost [] Specter []

Safe Haven [] Haven's Fall []

Belly of the Beast [] Shatter the Sky []

Also..You can pick the upgrades. I will be trying to spend all the money possible and if there is any left over, I will spend it how I see fit. If there is not enough money to get the upgrades, I will choose the ones in alphabetical order. Lol

Lol On Hard? Should be easy no matter the situation. I noticed this earlier today when I was doing Zerg Hour how much I improved since I first started.

I had trouble beating it on hard. Then there was the achievement of "Destroy 4 hatches on hard" and I was fuming going "WHO THE HELL CAN DO THIS?!" When I did it today...I took out 6 of the 8 hatches, Had my base defended with just 4 bunkers and had my main force of 70 marines with 10 medics attacking while I had another 30-40 with a few medics in my base. If I had more time, I could have taken out all the zerg bases with ease.

How'd you do brutal all-in with marines only? Did you do the air version or something?


Lots and lots of bunkers and repairs. Remember, I ALSO used the units I started out with so I did have 2 tanks, 2 battle cruisers and 3 banshees as well with some marauders and medics.

Hard/Brutal with mercs and starting units only (all buildings allowed)
Hard/Brutal with uncloaked wraiths only (you can cheat to get the tech earlier right?)
Hard/Brutal with hellions only

Or a really retarded one:
Brutal with scvs and buildings only. Starting units only allowed for defence.


(all buildings and upgrades allowed with all challenges, mercs only when said theyre allowed)

So I did the Azire challenge. That was pretty hard to do. Lol. I am not used to All In Air. I had a pretty tough time trying to figure out which units to use and the brood lords that kept attacking my mineral line plus the leviathan. ~spasms~ As for my noob friend who has never played SCII. Wow. I never expected to use ravens ever. They are pretty decent but not over the science vessel. Orbital drops are cool in theory but do not get the job done as well as needed compared to the tech reactor.
