Dec 15, 2012 Forum Guidelines - Please Read! Welcome to the StarCraft II discussion forums! This forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss all aspects of StarCraft II with your fellow players. Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you take the time to read through the Forum Code of Conduct before posting. Search The new search function at the top of the StarCraft II community site is extremely robust. Please be sure to use it to look for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer before creating your forum topic. Making a new thread on an existing subject will likely result in your thread being deleted. If you continue to repost it you're likely to have your posting privileges suspended for spamming. Worst of all, you'll be making the other forum goers upset that you didn't take a minute to search before posting. Rating The new rating system can be used to promote positive discussion, and demote unhelpful posts, or even report posts that violate the forum code of conduct. By hovering over a post you'll be presented with a thumbs up, and a thumbs down icon. Clicking the 'thumbs down' icon you can choose from a few options. Dislike will rate the comment down. If enough people dislike a post it will be darkened, or with a lot of dislikes it will be hidden. You can also quickly report a post as trolling or spam, or use the report function to fill out a more comprehensive description of the violation. You can only rate each post once. Use it wisely to help foster a positive and helpful forum community. Guidelines In addition to the Forum Code of Conduct, here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow. While these do technically fall within the bounds of the Code of Conduct, these cover more specific examples of common errors that will lead to thread deletions or posting privileges being revoked. The StarCraft II forums are for discussion of topics directly related to StarCraft II The forums here are specifically to discuss the game and related topics. Any topics not related to StarCraft II, Battle.net or Blizzard are subject to deletion. Don't post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, non-standard symbols, etc. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask you to refrain from using these types of tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Using the words Blizzard, Blue, or any community team members name in a thread topic is frowned upon Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that. However, use of such words in the topic does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Posting "First" or IBTL constitutes as spamming You will be suspended if you create a post that is intended to call out that you achieved a specific reply number in a thread. This is considered spamming. Posting IBTL (in before the lock) is not helpful and if you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so. Do not bump posts The act of posting simply to bump a thread is considered spamming. This also includes bumping very old threads for no reason (called 'necro bumping' or 'necroing'). Petition posts are frowned upon These are discussion forums, and as such we ask that you hold discussions. Creating a thread to ask for replies as votes is not a discussion. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Do not post about locked or deleted threads Posts that are moderated have a reason behind the moderation. It's up to you to read the forum code of conduct and these guidelines to determine what you did wrong, learn from your mistake, and attempt to post again without breaking any rules.Cloaken0 Dec 15, 2012
1d Announcing the Antioch Chronicles: Remastered The Antioch Chronicles: Remastered Installation Instructions: Download the zip file containing maps and the mod at http://www.sc2mapster.com/maps/antioch-chronicles-remastered/files// . Place the Antioch Remastered directory in your StarCraft 2/Maps folder. Place AntiochRemastered.SC2Mod in your mods directory. Download the StarCraft: Mass Recall mod (http://www.sc2mapster.com/maps/starcraft-mass-recall/files/61-scmrmod-v5-4) and place it in your mods folder. Note: Pressing cancel on the briefing screen will attempt to load the StarCraft Mass Recall map loader. We're working on a loader of our own, but for now please...don't click that button. To play: Open Antioch1-1.SC2Map in the editor. Press the Test Document button. If you are interested in helping with this project, please see the bottom of this post. What is this? This is the alpha release of a StarCraft 2 remake of the seminal StarCraft custom campaign known as the Antioch Chronicles. This project is a high-fidelity reproduction of the original campaign with few enhancements taking advantage of the StarCraft 2 editor. This version contains only Episode 1 of the campaign. It uses the StarCraft: Mass Recall mod, which the creators were generous enough to allow us to use. What is the Antioch Chronicles? In 1998, not long after StarCraft was released, a mapmaker calling himself Auspex Turmalis (Ruben Moreno) released episode 1 of a custom campaign that he called The Antioch Chronicles. The campaign featured custom audio, perhaps most notable for how well Auspex reproduced the Protoss audio effects. Also impressive was the fact that Auspex recorded all of the character voices himself. Episode 2 was released in 1999. For the second campaign, creative duties were split between Auspex and Zeus Legion (Eric Dieter), with additional voice support acting by Ytse-Jam (Juan Mantilla) and Macbeth (Eric Ladd). By the release of Episode 2, the Antioch Chronicles had gathered a large and active fan base. Unfortunately, a promised Episode 3 never came to fruition. Still, the first two episodes did much to shape the early StarCraft modding community and remain in the popular conscious fifteen years later. For more information about the Antioch Chronicles, visit http://antioch.snow-fall.com/wiki.pl?The_Antioch_Chronicles . Why are you doing this? The project founders are longstanding members of the Antioch Chronicles fan community, which never really died out, despite the campaign's cancellation. Last month, an idle forum thread about wanting the replay the Antioch Chronicles drew a surprising amount of attention for our tiny forum and within days we'd launched the project. What's next? Episode 2 is approximately 80% done, so we hope to have that in alpha in the next couple of weeks. Once we have both episodes released, we'll gather community feedback and polish the maps accordingly. Once we're satisfied with the state of the maps, we plan to plan to begin phase 2, where we'll bring the campaign up to 2015 standards. This includes but is not limited to giving the heroes special powers, tightening up and combining maps, and creating actual cutscenes. Can I help? We could definitely use some help. The easiest thing you can do is to download the campaign and play through it, giving us as much feedback as you'd like. Balance feedback is especially welcome, as these maps haven't really been play tested in that way. If you run into trouble, typing "power overwhelming" in the chat will enable god mode for your current units and "show me the money" will give you 10,000 credits and gas. If a map is just totally broken, please just move onto the next one. We'll try to get any critical bugs patched ASAP. If you'd like to join the team, we'd be happy to have you as long as you can make a honest time commitment to the project—it doesn't need to be a lot of time, we just need to know what we can count on you for. Here's what we could use help with: Polishing the terrain on the existing maps. Adding special effects to the maps (specifically, some explosions). Advanced trigger editing to spice up the maps. AI work to make the enemies more interesting (it's mostly just attack waves now). Creating new maps for phase 2 (where necessary). Creating cutscenes. Getting talking portraits set up. Adding powers to hero units. Creating artwork for the logo, loading screens, map loader, and more. Anything else you want to offer. Please contact me by email (adrian@op74.net) if you're interested in helping. Who are you? Team Antioch has four founding members: Alevice, DarkTZeratul, dine, and Lucid Iguana. We've known each other for about a decade. Prior to this project, only Alevice had any experience in the editor, but we've proven to be quick studies. We've also recently been joined by ace terrainer wargirl, whose work on Airstrike was featured on the arcade.LucidIguana7 1d
1d [Extension Mod] Allied Commanders Melee Just making a post to announce the release of my first (real) public extension mod, Allied Commanders Melee. As the name implies, this mod enables the full allied commanders from COOP mode for use with any melee map. (Or any map you can load an extension mod on, I guess, if you don't care about bugs.) In addition to traditional vs. AI melee gameplay, the AI can also spawn COOP style attack waves. These waves can be configured or disabled in the lobby settings (including enabling or disabling Hybrid spawning). There's a little weirdness as one might expect, but from my testing everything works pretty close to how it should, and the AI seems to function well. Please feel free to mess around with it and let me know what you think, or if you find any serious bugs. Mod is currently published on Americas region. Screenshots: http://imgur.com/a/l6Gew Known Bugs ------------------ - Some abilities cast from the command bar at the top of the screen will not properly affect an AI ally even if they are player 2 (see PvP mode, below). - Some units have incorrect values in build times, armor levels, and other areas. May be an issue with melee data conflict, will be worked on soon hopefully. - Stukov's command centers do not spread creep across the entire map. Will be working on a fix when possible. PvP Mode ------------------ Many abilities cast from the command bar at the top of the screen will affect/be affected by both players even if they are not allies. This is because they are coded to function this way by Blizzard since the players are always allies in traditional coop gameplay. Fixing this will take a great deal of time and effort as it involves some fairly significant re-working of the triggers. No ETA, not even sure I am going to do it. We'll see. For now, just accept that if you want to play PvP there will be weirdness.Kishkuma99 1d
2d [Extension Mod] ReCraft Exactly 1 year passed since I started working on this mod, now available at all servers. Just look for ReCraft when selecting an extension mod. Plenty of balance mods out there that nobody plays, so I don't really expect much activity here (if any). I'll be still updating it, though (I expect to having to update with each SC2 patch to fix mismatches caused by multiplayer data updates). Have fun if you decide to play. General changes... Terran... Zerg... Protoss...WorldFrgttn5 2d
3d PARASITE TEST Part 6 "This thread is for the arcade game PARASITE TEST. Part 5 of the on-going thread chain. In case you don't know what PARASITE TEST is, it's a deception game, where one player starts off as the alien, with other players being humans. For the alien to win, he must infest/kill all humans, and for the human to win, he must kill all aliens. It's similar to Warcraft 3's Metastasis and Parasite 2, and StarCraft 2's The Thing, Xeno Crisis, and Malum Ruina in concept of alien deception type gameplay."

[Development] Special Forces Elite 5 is still undergoing heavy development. The current priority in development is implementing the planned additions to end Beta once and for all. Before Beta ends, each starting and purchasable hero will be equipped with brand new abilities that fit the class, there will be more enemy bosses and player profiles will be fully functional with achievements and rewards. Development will not stop after beta is ended. [Game-play] Each player starts in a corner of the map alongside a base with one hero of their choice. The base is to be protected, or else players will lose. By clicking the base, you can navigate through a list of upgrades for Terran, Protoss, and Zerg, purchase units, purchase elite units, and purchase upgrades variety of other upgrades. Purchase units and upgrades of the race that your hero belongs to, otherwise your units will not receive the benefits from upgrades. Players can also give their units, heroes and structures special buffs with their starting hero. The goal of the game is to destroy all enemy units and structures while defending the base. Some starting heroes specialize in defense, others in offense; achieving victory requires just the right amount of each type of hero. Work closely with your allies to push back the waves of enemies that will come from structures, and then battle the bosses that spawn from those structures when destroyed. Focus all available firepower on harder bosses that spawn from late-game structures, and bosses that attack the base at certain times in the game; cooperation from all players is the key to success.

4d Primal Zerg in an extension mod I am currently working on an extension mod that aims to add the Primal Zerg to multiplayer, and I was wondering about people's opinions on the best way to implement them. Given what little we've seen of the Dehaka commander, what mechanics of his do you think would work best in a multiplayer setting? (Example mechanics: essence-collecting Dehaka hero, pack leaders, primal worms, units fighting each other to level up, etc.)Nedia2 4d

Sep 10 Eras Zombie Invasion [Official Thread] Eras Zombie Invasion has just been released onto Battle.net. It is the remake to the classic Warcraft 3 map. I am creating this thread to assemble any and all suggestions or any bugs/glitches one might report into one location. Check out the map now and if you have feedback to give I would be glad to hear it. As far as what one can expect from the game: I have basically brought all the features from the original over. I have a water/boat system that works quite nicely and one can still expect the dreaded water zombies. I’ve added additional events as well as a new random event feature that will make the game feel different every time, more dynamic. I plan on adding loads more and expanding on what’s already a great game. As this is newly released it may contain some bugs or glitches, even issues of balance, if you encounter them, report them, as I’d greatly appreciate any input on these matters. Smith600 Sep 10

Sep 3 [Extension mod] Campaign and coop units If anyone is interested, i made an extension mod that allows playing multiplayer but using campaign and coop units and as well as campaign upgrades. It can be found on all servers, just search for "Campaign and Coop units" on Extension mods. Note that balance should not be taken too seriously as most units function as they do in the campaigns and co-op mode, however some upgrades and abilities are disabled to prevent excessive imbalance (such as Protoss Guardian Shell). Features: - Game modes (Infested waves, Hybrid waves, Void Rifts, etc) - AI build orders and counters make full use of all campaign and co-op units, as well as their exclusive abilities. - Ability to choose starting resources, resources per base and supply limit. - Heroic units, which can be toggled on or off. - Ability to toggle Tal'darim, Purifier and Covert Ops skins from campaign and co-op modes. Future updates: - Add Primal Zerg and Infested Terran units and structures to the Zerg race - Improved hero mode, as well as adding missing heroes. - Ability to customise Kerrigan and Nova abilities.MrGW8 Sep 3
Sep 2 Operation: Vast Expanse (ARPG Beta) Operation: Vast Expanse is a multiplayer Starcraft II ARPG where you play the role of one of the few surviving military personnel of the Vast Expanse research facility. (Overview) A catastrophic security incident has left the better portion of the research facility heavily compromised. As the majority of your team has been killed in battle and headquarters has gone dark, your new mission is to survive until help arrives. (Controls) As an ARPG, you control a single character where the controls are similar to a game like Diablo. Left click will fire your weapon, right click will cause your character to move, and moving the mouse while attacking or moving will cause your character to follow accordingly. In addition, in-game upgrades and calldowns allow you to increase your capabilities to match the increasing difficulty of the game. (Goal) The goal is to survive ever-harder hordes of enemies split across 50 waves. As you kill things and successfully defeat new enemies, you gain resources which you can spend on upgrades or calldowns. It is your job to decide what to spend and when, and this will determine your success or failure in the later stages of the game.

Sep 2 Kerrigan Survival 2 [Official Thread] Hello I'm one of two people working on Kerrigan Survival 2 a cat an original cat and mouse game on the arcade. 10 players are required for a full lobby. 8 players are builders/support and 2 players are zerg. 1 zerg player is responsible for chasing and killing the bases the other's job is to defend and fortify the central zerg base. Mechanics There must always be a Zagara on the Zerg team. Only one player can be Kerrigan or Dehaka Only 3 players can be supports per game. If a support is alive but all the builders die, the 'survivors' which is the collective whole of supports and builders lose. ie: If a support is alive but the builders are dead the game is over and zerg win. VisionZerglings are spawned every 3 seconds and automatically path around the map to help locate builders. Zerglings cannot see invisible units and by default have a vision radius of 0 unless upgraded. If they run into a building/builder they will attack it and it will show up on the minimap. Basic fog of war mechanics apply. Most builder's units have 0 vision radius without upgrades making vision extremely valuable Credits As you play more games you earn credits that you can spend on rewards in game. By default several of the builder's are locked and must be unlocked with credits. The best way to earn a lot of credits is by playing zerg and playing well. You get 1 credit per survivor kill and an extra 5 credits for winning as zerg. BountyFor builders/support you receive gas when you kill zerg units. and vice versa for the zerg. The Zerg players share gas bounty. If Zagara gets 5 gas killing a unit so does Kerrigan and vice versa. The Zerg players share upgrades. If Kerrigan upgrades her unit's armor then so does Zagara. IncomeMinerals are always generated passively from income sources. Either buildings or units. There is no way to earn gas except from killing the opposing team's units or structures. This game has the potential for a great deal of depth based on what builders you choose. Their individual play styles vary immensely. For example, Spirit earns the majority of his income by playing an RNG stock market. the other part of his income is a bank that increments the minerals inside by a fixed percentage every few seconds. Spirit is only able to attack by building fixed towers that are upgraded throughout the match. Builders Scientist Ares Ascendant Spirit Engineer Nomad ArtanisSupport Prophet Dark Templar Stukov Team NovaZerg Kerrigan Dehaka ZagaraThe lings that Automatically spawn are Zagara's by default. She moves very slowly off the creep and has a ranged attack. She can also teleport to anywhere on the map that creep has spread. She spreads creep, which give vision, by laying tumors. If you have any bug reports please post them in this thread.Tor8 Sep 2
Aug 28 Stank or Apocalisk for infested race? I am in the process of creating an extension mod that adds the infested as a playable race, and I am trying to decide whether to include the Stank or the Apocalisk as a buildable unit. My infested race is designed to touch upon all aspects of the infested in the Starcraft universe. This means that both the Left 2 Die special infested and the Stukov commander units should be included. The problem is that both the Stank and the Apocalisk fill roughly the same role. (In my mod, the Apocalisk would not be a heroic calldown, but rather a slower version of the Ultralisk with anti-air capabilities.) I can't see any way to include one without getting rid of the other. If I choose the Apocalisk, I have to give up the coolest of the special infested (and also wind up giving people an incomplete set of Left 2 Die units). If I choose the Stank, I end up sacrificing one of the most epic units in the entire game for what is basically just a stronger Ultralisk. The planned unit lineup is as follows. There are a couple of units on the end whose inclusion I am not sure of: Infested SCV Overlord --> Spotter Infested Civilian Infested Marine Volatile Infested Hunterling Kaboomer Aberration Infested Diamondback Choker Infested Siege Tank Stank / Apocalisk Infested Liberator Infested Banshee Brood Queen Infested Battlecruiser?

Aug 22 PARASITE TEST Part 4 This thread is for the arcade game PARASITE TEST. Part 4 of the on-going thread chain. In case you don't know what PARASITE TEST is, it's a deception game, where one player starts off as the alien, with other players being humans. For the alien to win, he must infest/kill all humans, and for the human to win, he must kill all aliens. It's similar to Warcraft 3's Metastasis and Parasite 2, and StarCraft 2's The Thing, Xeno Crisis, and Malum Ruina in concept of alien deception type gameplay.

Aug 19 Viridian Shrine [1v1 | Melee] Hello forums, For the past week or so I've been trying to create a well polished, balanced melee map. The best way to achieve that is through playtesting and observing winrate trends over numerous games. If anyone is so inclined the map is named Viridian Shrine (battlenet:://starcraft/map/1/289572). Viridian Shrine is a 1v1 melee map following the style of ladder maps in the current pool and previous pools. Special care has been taken to detail the map in such a way that it provides a close-to-even play experience for all the races. (From the perspective of my limited play-test group) The map features jungle-style terrain with a "Lost Temple" theme. It also features 12 bases, and 3 gold bases, one of which is rich in vespene but dangeous to take. I look forward to your comments and suggestions, and aspire to have this map one day make the ladder pool. The map is currently available on the US server, and if you take the time to play it I would appreciate it if you rated the map and left a comment. Thank you for your interest, -Moon (Jordan)MoonStone1 Aug 19

Most of his combat gear was thrown out of his ship upon ground impact. The commanders must help the mercenary to find his missing gear, while protecting him from Amon's forces which are on the planet to salvage the Xel'Naga relics inside the ruins. This map requires you to be constantly on the move. While Christopher does have a weapon at his disposal, he's still just one man and requires the help of the commanders' troops. The enemy will not just attack the player bases, but Christopher's ship as well. The missing gear is being protected by old Xel'Naga constructs, so you have to defeat them in order to retrieve it. You must be quick, as the constructs will attack Christopher if no other unit is closeby - and if he dies, it's game over.

Aug 17 Single Player RTS Map Contest (SC2|SC1|WC3) Single Player Map Contest (IN PLANNING) Greetings map-making community! Two other community members, Jayborino and Pr0nogo, and I are looking to bring the Blizzard RTS communities together around our love for some good, ol' fashioned single player content. We are really just looking to gauge interest and participation here at first with something more official coming later if we think enough folks will join in. These are all early ideas as we're looking for feedback at this point and we'll add more of the semantics later. If you are interested in participating, have any suggestions, questions, and/or feedback, please let us know here in the thread. Thank you!! Contest Rules and Conditions Submissions must be playable in StarCraft 1, StarCraft 2, OR Warcraft 3. Submissions must be single player only. Mission 1 of a possible campaign, a stand alone scenario map, or Arcade-y type maps which could include virtually any style of gameplay. Submissions must be new maps, started at the time of the contest. Submissions must include instructions for how to play, whether it be in offline mode for StarCraft 2, on Battle.net, through the custom campaign interface of WC3, etc. One submission per person/team. This is still in brainstorming phases, we're looking for any feedback that could make this appeal to more contributors. We want the barrier of entry to be fairly low. See judging section below for answers to inevitable questions of imbalanced cross-game judging. Prizes Depending on # of submissions per game, we may have a winner per game, then an overall winner of those three. Prizes may depend on which game the winning map is for or perhaps just winner's choice. Please leave feedback on what below may incentivize you to participate. Bragging rights; the thrill of winning; good exposure to Jayborino's and Deltron's viewerbase; SC: Remastered key/s, SC2 co-op and/or collectibles DLC, announcer packs; WoW expansion or time card; StarCraft Risk Board Game, etc. Judges Jayborino DeltronLive Pr0nogo (unless maybe he submits) YouTube viewer polls Judging/Voting Criteria Jayborino and I have extensive content on our channels and our experience hopefully instills some level of trust when we say that fun factor really is #1 in terms of possible judging. We play each of these games and do not really prefer one over the other. We understand that, for example, the SC2 Galaxy Editor opens the door for many more possibilities, but can also be much more time consuming, so there are many balancing factors that we're very aware of. We'll nail the judging criteria down in stone if this becomes official and are looking for feedback to again make this as appealing to creators as possible to participate.

Aug 7 Desert Strike Azure [Development] Desert Strike Azure - Tug of War Map: two fortresses stand in a vast battlefield - To Win: overrun the enemy fortress with created units - To Play: create units, create Gas Exchangers for income Desert Strike version Azure is based on the original desert strike maps: Desert Strike version Queen (DSvQ: Broodwar) and Desert Strike version Square (DSvS: SC2 port of DSvQ) Desert Strike Azure plays most similarly to DSvQ while using mechanics found in DSvS. Instead of using unit upgrades, Desert Strike Azure has evolved to expand on the strategic use of unit movement speeds and unit counters. In summary: Desert Strike Azure contains a deep multi-wavebuild metagame -a metagame of unit choices & casual timing. Gamelink battlenet:://starcraft/map/1/276093 To use link: close SC2, click windows icon (bottom left), type 'run' in search, press enter, paste link, click 'ok' Videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eeJ1yn5VQhg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lN8wD8rBIQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKIRG5u1jGs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGGR965zxD8 How is it different from Desert Strike version Queen/Square? 1. Adaptation for Victory: Desert Strike version Azure demands that the player adapt their wave build per each game or be defeated. Every unit is intended to be used when needed per varying battlefield conditions. 2. Multiple Wave Build Options: There are no weak units, there are no overpowered units. However, if you build every unit, your wave will be weak. *for those coming from DSvS: all air units are now powerful and usable (instead of being near useless) ie: Mutas, Void Rays, Carriers and Battlecruisers are quite powerful. Building an attack wave is cooking -and you are the chef, the Iron Chef of Victory! - In analogy, don't use every ingredient in the kitchen -you'll just make a mess 3. Casual Timing? Its a very big battlefield. Your wave must traverse the terrain to reach the enemy fortress. Each unit type within the wave moves at a different speed. Move speed determines 'when' it arrives in battle, which affects the performance of your 'push' toward the enemy fortress. *Many units can now speed shift (change move speeds). In example: Using slow primal roaches within a Zerg wave will create a secondary 'front tanky line' to protect hydralisks. Using sets of fast and slow spellcasters (Infestor, Ghost, High Templar) will allow you to control when they arrive in battle to cast AOE spells. 4. New Units: Custom made units with highly advanced AI were used to macro balance (convert) a RTS game into a truly balanced Tug of War game. In design, an RTS game cannot be used in this specific tug without adapting for 'lack of micro' -like creating a new board game using Chess pieces & Japanese Shogi pieces, it does not work without filling in needed roles via true adaptation and new custom creations. 5. Gambling and Betting: I prefer that this aspect of the map be experienced and found by the players via gamplay. Technical Development Information Desert Strike Azure is not an augmentation or add-on to SC2 or to the original Desert Strike. It is coded from the ground up, from scratch, designed and created with the purpose of having macro-balance, depth of meta and to have near zero lag. - 1+ year(s) of development - 120+ Custom made units There are no campaign units used -there are no melee units used either. Every unit is created from scratch (independently from blizzard units) and designed for effect tree efficiency. This is the primary method of lag elimination. - there are no hidden stats, all information is available by directly clicking on the battlefield units and hovering over the equipment icons - 100+ Custom Buildings - detailed custom models, animations, textures, tooltips - extremely detailed tooltips designed to inform players of their unit choices Join us at our discord channel for bug reports, suggestions and to hang out: https://discord.gg/8TJNPTn battlenet:://starcraft/map/1/276093 To use link: close SC2, click windows icon (bottom left), type 'run' in search, press enter, paste link, click 'ok'TerraAzure47 Aug 7

Jul 27 Mass Recall Unable to Load Save Hey all, Not sure if this is the right board for this but hopefully someone can chime in. A few days ago I installed StarCraft: Mass Recall and it's great and I'm having lots of nostalgic fun with it. The only bug I've encountered so far is that on certain missions, it won't load my save games; I get the error that says something like "Failed to open save." That's not the exact wording but close. Note this is not a failure to load the map (did a Google search for this bug and that's all that came up), thus far all maps are loading fine it's specifically not loading certain mission's saves. These missions are Terran 5 and Terran 7 from Episode 1 (I'm presently on Terran 7). I'm curious to see if it'll occur on Terran 9 as one, as one common element in this missions is that you get the Sarah Kerrigan unit. Has anyone else experienced this bug? Any solutions? Thanks!Juxtapose2 Jul 27
Jul 22 Game of Thrones [A Song of Ice and Fire] This is a continuation thread since our last thread is almost maxed out. All conversation towards the map that was created by JTaylor goes here! I'll update this post later tonight with more information about the game. What is Game of Thrones? GoT is based off of the fictional story and world created by George RR Martin. The game itself takes place during the height of the War of the Five Kings in a period after Robert died and Eddard Stark was executed for treason. The game itself involves every major house and faction during the war as they attempt to place themselves onto the Iron Throne or better themselves off prior to the conflict. How does the game play work? GoT uses the turn based system similar to the War of the Ring and Silmarillion Maps from the Warcraft 3 days. Every minute and 50 seconds you spawn a set of units at every spawn. Spawns can be upgrade with vespene gas (every faction starts with 100 gas you can only upgrade 2 at a time) As spawns become upgraded they produce higher tier units that are stronger. Upgrading spawns takes 300 seconds. In addition, the game puts emphasis on Heroes. Utilize, Micro, and keep your heroes safe! They represent the bulk of your power. In addition, diplomacy is also crucial because some factions while being in the game may not need to hold the Iron Throne to win adding twists to the game. All this talk about spawns, what are they? Every faction owns a capital city thats worth a large amount of supply, can be upgraded five times, and produces the best units for a faction. Factions also own a variety of towns that can be upgraded three or for times , and keeps that can be upgraded once to spawn extra of the lowest variety of unit. Are my favorite heroes from the series in the game? You bet! Every faction has between 3-6 heroes ranging from the Five Kings, Great Jon Umber, the Stark Dire Wolves, Melisandre, Brienne, Oberyn, and many more! Edit: More Info to come!Waffen400 Jul 22

Jul 21 Neostar RPG, a bw-like hero roamer Hello! Neostar RPG is a harsh bw-like hero roamer, inspired by the days of old when common design wisdoms were not yet discovered and maps held no expectations for features/polish. <2016 EDIT> or so I'd want to say but after release I kept on working on rough edges the map had until it did acquire some of the benefits of moder designs. Best of two worlds, woooo! I think the map got better for it.<2016 EDIT END> The objective of the map is locate and destroy Dragon’s den before Dragon awakens and erases the expedition forces (which you are a part of) off the face of the planet. Every now and then planets wildlife will overpopulate and attack expeditionary outpost. At first outpost can shrug off such waves, but later on, ignoring them can cost a game. Moving on, player can chose one of 4 classes to play the game. Each class/hero starts with only 1 ability, but unlocks additional skill and strength each time he levels up (up to 5 levels max <2016 EDIT> now 6 levels, but lvl 6 is just big passive bonus <2016 EDIT END>), with level 5 being almost unreachable in regular game, but on the flipside offering game-winning abilities in one way or another if achieved. Beware of perma death, if you die you can chose one of remaining heroes, but never the class that you’ve already lost. There are also some other things, like gathering flowers and making potions out of them, hunting scattered frozen enemies for exp/mineral freebies, searching for vaults that once found will increase array of tools for players to win the game and various interactions and tactics to learn. Feel free to ask any question, except for the following one: Q: Will you make the map to resemble more WC3/SC2 maps with lots of different upgrades, maybe persistent progress, and maybe computer pushing by himself? A: This project for me is all about the bw-feelings, some pieces are thrown for nostalgia (crazy kerrigans, queens), some cause they made sense and were needed to fulfill some functions (highground advantage). In a sense, bw maps all shared this elegant simplicity. Simple universal upgrades, simple mercs, you just kinda knew what you were getting from the looks of things. Many upgrades/skill trees is more of a WC3 era thing. I’d rather make a new map featuring those as a core concept rather than add them to something that was made with different thought in mind. Oh, and also: Q: Add town portal! A: Use potion of haste and run really really fast. Q: Lurkers at w3 kill the base, too strong! A: There is a cheap potion that grants detection, or you can build a sensor tower for insane field coverage. Q: Game too hard! A: Use your abilities, pick winnable engagements, be aware of surrounding. Make potions! glfh, dd kaDuckyTheDuck46 Jul 21

Jul 10 Lottery Defence Question I had an issue today with my progress in the game that I am sure isn't correctable, but I will see if anyone else has seen the issue. I had a power outage at my house while I was in the middle of a Lottery Defense Game and when I logged back on I noticed that I had lost all of my progress in the Arcade Game except for my Rune. So I went from level 30 to level 1 and all the SP that had been built up which is a little frustrating. Any help is appreciated, I'm leaning towards a to bad scenario right now though. Thanks All.Vairosean2 Jul 10
Jul 9 Starcraft Universe (caution: much trolling) Update: Sorry for the title chance, but this thread got pretty low pretty fast by the time it hit three pages of posts. As for continuing the conversation properly, please go to the Upheaval Arts website forums: http://upheavalarts.com/starcraftuniverse/forum/ Know that I will be quick to ban users that troll on there (I'm a moderator on the Upheaval website, so I can do that over there). There's a new thread now, so this post probably won't be updated ever again. Here's the new thread: http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/topic/10014611452 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Anyone like Starcraft Universe? Now is the absolutely perfect time show your support, because we finally have concrete evidence that it will be out VERY soon (or at least an open beta will). The Starcraft Universe developers have started a Kickstarter fund raiser to support the development of their game. Their kickstarter page tells you just about everything, even what the money you donate will be used for. All you have to do to know more about the kickstarter is go here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/747939120/starcraft-universe?ref=card You can see what Blizzard had to say about the currently available demo, 'SC Universe: Chronicles of Fate,' right here: http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/blog/8996231/arcade-highlight-starcraft-universe-3-8-2013#best You can even visit the Upheaval Arts website and make an account on there if you want to tell them your appreciation. I've recently been given Moderator status for the website, so I'll be there to help maintain it, and I'll be on there a lot for the rest of the month at the least, so ask away either here or over there if you have any questions. http://upheavalarts.com/starcraftuniverse/ To be specific, you can ask questions (and possibly learn a few more things about Starcraft Universe) right here: http://upheavalarts.com/starcraftuniverse/forum/thread/2762/info-where-to-find-and-play-scu-more/page_1/#post3715 If anyone has any questions at all, I'll be here to answer them. P.S. Starcraft Universe is NOT an actual MMO, its more like Diablo. That's a rumor the devs have been trying to kill for some time. Update: I recently realized that the developers may not be 100% certain about how SCU will be 100% free to play 100% of the time... Fingers crossed that at least the smaller maps, Chronicles and the coming open alpha, will stay featured.Setho89 Jul 9
Jul 8 PARASITE TEST Part 5 "This thread is for the arcade game PARASITE TEST. Part 5 of the on-going thread chain. In case you don't know what PARASITE TEST is, it's a deception game, where one player starts off as the alien, with other players being humans. For the alien to win, he must infest/kill all humans, and for the human to win, he must kill all aliens. It's similar to Warcraft 3's Metastasis and Parasite 2, and StarCraft 2's The Thing, Xeno Crisis, and Malum Ruina in concept of alien deception type gameplay."

Jun 27 Training Map for Terran Original Post https://www.reddit.com/r/starcraft/comments/6jrwqt/train_multitasking_and_apm_skills_as_fast_as/ Arcade map is called Ultimate Multitasker DuskTowers In my search to improve my skills, I made a training map to simulate hardcore multitasking. This is for players looking to improve their APM/multitasking skills quickly. I added variance and scoring parameters to encourage you play more aggressively than you might in a typical multiplayer game. Check it out and let me know what you think Thanks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9I4ngHsdJ1I&feature=youtu.beGrowin0 Jun 27

Jun 27 Rock the Cabinet: Tech Wars 2 Game Name: Tech Wars 2 Creators: Snazzman & Overdrive Game Type: Tug of War Typical Game Time: 30 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes Game Link: Americas: starcraft://map/1/226363 Europe: starcraft://map/2/138407 Modes: Standard (3v3), 2v2, 1v1, Cross (2v2) Player Requirements: 1 to 6 (Working AI on all modes. If a player leaves, the AI will take control) Youtube Playlist: I made a playlist on my youtube account of other people’s videos. Most of the videos are old versions, but mostly still relevant. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLdm0xtCcwexw8FxwPsVdPQGz3_Wz2aUwJ Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Official-Tech-Wars-2/248393088650498 Description: Tech Wars 2 was inspired by the Warcraft 3 map, Tech Wars. The objective of the game is to destroy all three enemy Planetary Fortresses, while keeping at least one of your team’s Fortresses intact. Achieving this goal requires long term strategy and teamwork, countering enemy units in each lane and controlling technology pylons that allow your team to utilise a wider range of units. This map mostly started out as our own editor playground where we could create interesting custom units and game dynamics in the context of a playable map. However, it’s developed into something much more now; we have a thriving community (mostly in the Europe server but growing in Americas) that supplies us with constant feedback that we genuinely listen to and often act on. The design aesthetic of the map still leans somewhat towards the creative side, but the gameplay definitely allows for competitive play and we try to keep things balanced. There are currently 91 buildable units in the map, many of which are custom, and we’re always dreaming up more. There are far too many gameplay nuances to cover in a single post, but I’ll just outline the basics of how to play: Each player has a Planetary Fortress, and if it is destroyed, you lose all of your buildings. You know, standard tug of war stuff. Build and upgrade structures such as Barracks and Factories to spawn units that will automatically make their way towards your closest opponent’s Fortress to attack. Many unit upgrades require special technology that isn’t attained by research, but instead requires the corresponding Pylon in the centre of the map to be controlled by your team. You don’t have to do anything special to control the tech, they just go to whichever team has the most units near it. You can build anywhere on your team’s side of the map and units spawned will always head towards the nearest technology Pylon before attacking the enemy base. We intentionally left the map quite open tactically, but standard practice is to build most of your buildings behind your own base, along with a few at the top or bottom of the map to capture Protoss and Zerg tech, respectively, and a few buildings behind allied bases if they’re in trouble. Resources take the form of Minerals and Vespene Gas, as usual. Minerals are gathered by Harvesters built in your Command Centre, while Vespene is earned by killing enemy units. In addition, any of your units killed by enemy Fortresses or turrets will earn you Vespene, and you receive 1 Vespene every time a Harvester returns in Standard Mode. In the tragic event that you do lose your Planetary Fortress, you will be presented with a Shade that has a number of spells useful for helping your allies. Although it is very possible to win a game after one of your teammates has become a Shade, note that you are definitely at a disadvantage. We hope you enjoy our map, and if you have any questions or feedback or anything, feel free to contact us at techwars2@gmail.com Snazzman and OverdriveOverdrive6 Jun 27
