Aug 28, 2013 Beta portraits There are a bunch of people asking if other people got their portraits already. I've seen a couple of people already having their portraits. So, I'm guessing that the system is updating for now, eh? Since there are still a group of people who don't have their portraits yet. Can anyone confirm this?NoVice6 Aug 28, 2013
Aug 26, 2013 New Clan - Control Assault Delete Hi guys, Looking to start a clan with a focus on community and fun. I am posting in this section as I live in Melbourne, Australia and ideally would be looking initially to get some people who play around the same time as I do on. If I get a few people interested, I will look into getting a site going and setting up a RaidCall group. Like I said the clan would be about gaming in a group and helping each other with strategies and improving. Leave a message if you're interested :)Xenophage5 Aug 26, 2013

Jul 27, 2013 A few questions from a Returning Player Hi Everyone, I'm Returning to SC2 after a year long hiatus. A few questions have arised immediately. I used to play under the name Lycan, but it seems that my account details have been wiped completely, can anyone explain this? It's not really a problem but I'm curious. Secondly, I never really got into multiplayer, but I'm hoping that after completing the campaign again I'll be able to get into that scene. As a complete noob to competative RTS, should I expect a gradual learning curve, or will I be destroyed repeatedly until I quit? Basically is it worth playing? I'm hoping to play people of my own skill level. Finally, I have not bought HOTS yet, so will there still be opponents and games to join on Wings, or is HOTS a requirement? Thanks in Advance. P.S. I'm from Ballarat VIC, anyone else in the region?Scythyn2 Jul 27, 2013
Jul 25, 2013 The Official Noobschool Team league THIS IS FOR SEA PLAYERS ONLY, ALL GAMES PLAYED ON SEA SERVER That's right ladies and gentlemen! from now on instead of a 1v1 tournament we will have a team league! Two teams will compete every friday in a best of 7. FORMAT: Your team does NOT have to be all in the same clan! (although that would be fine!) Single elimination format, meaning if a team loses one match they are eliminated from the league until next season! each set is to be played best of 7, maps will be predetermined. Players play maps in order of their league. ONE player from each team plays each map against ONE player of the opposing team if there are players of equal league the team may choose the order. no player may appear more than once, except in the 7th match both teams can choose any player, immediately before the match, who has already played in that set. Each team may only have a certain distribution of league amongst their players; Bronze players = 2 points Silver players = 4 points Gold players = 7 points Platinum players = 9 points Diamond players =14 points Master's players = 18 points Grandmaster players = 21 points The 6 players selected for a set may not exceed 65 points total. Note: The player in the ace (7th) match counts again towards this total, as stated earlier the ace is not required to be chosen beforehand, but enough points must be left for at least one of the players to be the ace it is not necessary to use all 65 points.

Jul 7, 2013 Issue in selecting different folder Hi Guys, I just purchase sc 2 standard edition no problem installing them, but issue occurs when updating the patch i think. It prompt a pop-up dialogue says "Your installation of Starcraft II must be optimized before you can play. This process takes 15-60 minutes and should not be canceled once it begins. Do you wish to proceed?" this problem starts right after click "Begin" and it says "The folder you selected cannot be used. Please select a different folder" gahh so I click "OK" and it doesn't do anything and I can't even do anything to locate different folder or search folder. Can any of you guys help me, would be appreciate thanks!Phoenix2 Jul 7, 2013

Jun 17, 2013 Ping/response better on NA then SEA for optus Been playing on SEA since launch, but since the 2.0.4 patch have had some very laggy games (not caused by background downloading, mine finished).

Apr 25, 2013 New Balance test map coming shortly Hi all, One of our devs has posted what we are looking to focus on regarding balance. Let them know your feedback here or on the orginal thread - http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/topic/8704740456 "Hello everyone~We're currently thinking of trying out a couple changes just on a balance test map in a couple weeks or so. We're not looking to do any major changes because the game is in a fairly solid state but just wanted to give a heads up on our current thinking in order to get your feedback. Main thing we're hoping to address soon is the ling/muta strategy in ZvZ. We heard your feedback on changes such as Hydralisk AA damage increase, but we'd like to go smaller in changes if possible. For example, if we increase the +bio damage on Spore Crawlers, it would only affect the ZvZ matchup which is a very small change even if we go big on the +bio damage value. The hope here is to have more Infestors come into play in the mass Muta on Muta battles and/or bring the fight more so to the ground because it'll be more easily possible to stay on the ground due to less resources on defense needed to fend off Mutalisk attacks. Of course ZvZ or any other matchup can change completely in the next weeks, but as of now we think this is the biggest issue in HotS. A few other things we're thinking on but are really not even close to final on are: 1. Oracle movement speed increase To really reward high skilled usage of Oracles. Even when air units are in play, it could be possible for the highest end players to perfectly use Oracles without losing them. 2. Burrow cost and/or research time downTowards the beginning of HotS, early burrow attacks showed some decent potential but we never see it anymore. We thought this variety in opening especially on the Zerg that usually play a defensive early game was cool. So we're wondering how early game Zerg can evolve if we made early game attacks using burrow more effective. As always, nothing is final at this point, but just wanted to give an update on our current thoughts. Please let us know what you think and as always in a live game, we will definitely take our time to evaluate everything before making any moves."Arcagnion3 Apr 25, 2013
Apr 24, 2013 Newest SC2 player to date Could possibly be me. Bought the game last Wednesday. I have a missus and 2 kids (1.5yrs and 3.5years old) so my play time is limited or have 1 on my lap smashing buttons... A bit of history - sega master system -> mega drive -> playstation - played some wc2 then gave wc3 a thrashing, including frozen throne - age of mythology - played WOW for like 8 years - diablo 3 since release - SC2 I have some RTS experience and hoping this will help me learn quick. I chose Terran, no particular reason but it was a toss up between them and Protoss. Been playing against ai on medium and having some success. Watched a few videos on youTube, and just trying to work it all out. I must say I am excited and love the strategies involved. Any advice on when I should tackle PVP rather than ai? Like when I have ai 'hard' on farm? Any other advice is always welcome for this Newb! <3 SlabocansSlabocans6 Apr 24, 2013

Apr 15, 2013 WHY A LANGUAGE LIMITATION IS NEEDED?? I'm using a star craft account which has paid in Taiwanese region, when I tried to log in with English I was told that it's an unavailable language to my account!! Why u have to limit the language to be chosen while allowing us to log in to another region?? That's pretty ridiculous!! I've paid a lot to get HotS, why can't I enjoy all of the game? It's unfairNexargos1 Apr 15, 2013

Apr 14, 2013 Philippines - Skybroadband sucks? Jumped ship from globe broadband to sky a year ago reason being that we have 4 internet users in the house and the measly 1mbps is not enough anymore. I stopped playing WoL during the time because I had other games to play and work. Now that HoTS is out I started playing again and wow the lag is unbearable. I've had issues with them before but to think that it would be like this? I don't even bother playing matchmaking games because I'd just be disconnected 10-15 seconds in the game. Anyone else having this issue? Any skybroadband users here?KingKalvin8 Apr 14, 2013
