Re: First! Now let's talk spoilers (SC2)!

Okay okay, fair enough. Tell me this then. Do you think it's completely outside the realm of possibility that with many other similarities as well as the Oracle similarity, that somewhere in Blizz, the term 'Roach' was latched onto as a result of someone playing LotC? After all, Zerg are called 'Ro...

Re: First! Now let's talk spoilers (SC2)!

@Xelxiuz: I saw that panel and looked it up. I cannot find anything in the etymology of the word cockroach or just 'roach' by itself that has anything to do with resilience, armor, or toughness. Please see here: Cockroach Etymology folk etymology, influenced by cock and roach, from Spanish cucarach...

Re: First Impressions (spoilers obv)

The game is quickly becoming irrelevant outside of melee and campaign, which doesn't have nearly enough lasting power. Wc3/TFT had a much better pool of people to play on the ranges of melee whereas SC2 starts slowing down the more people you queue up.

You could always just float a gigantic air force over the areas where the hybrids can't reach you and bone the hell out of whatever comes your way.

Re: First Impressions (spoilers obv)

Is this new? I'm off line and I went to power up the editor and it said I had to log in to Battle.net "to authenticate the account." I clicked no on logging in to Battle.net and it closed the program. HAHAHAHAHA WTF! Yes, Blizzard enforce that you log on B.net at least once to able to fid...

Re: First! Now let's talk spoilers (SC2)!

The roach was named such because of it's ability to tank, coming from the word cockroach. It was explained in full in one of the interviews detailing on how they create new units starting from the art and ideas into gameplay with fine tuning playing a huge part into whether or not it would make it p...

Re: SC2 Campaign: How do you get all the upgrades and missio

You got it even using the Char menu? Cause it doesn't work for me and apparently only works on the Hyperion/Lab.

They seem to have fixed it actually with the new patch.

Re: First Impressions (spoilers obv)

Wow. All of the protoss voice acting/editing is terrible . You say this as if it was a surprise. I'm pretty sure by the time Legacy of the Void comes out no one will give a !@$% about Artanis and friends because with the treatment they were given they might as well be fodder. I mean hell they could...

Re: First! Now let's talk spoilers (SC2)!

You are comparing 3 prime evils that actually use their diabolic brain cells versus a bunch of infested dragons that like to sleep a lot and an army of hobos with steroid enhanced aids that prefer to only have one dragon lead them than I don't know, all of them at once? Doesn't help that the dragons...

Re: Anyone beat Last Map on Brutal yet?

I never tried it myself like I said so I wasn't sure T_T either way psionic lash is a better nuke in terms of spike damage, while it's a toss up for bonus damage against light/armored. I personally only used thors/tanks and pretty much didn't touch infantry which was a bad move actually since they c...

Re: Anyone beat Last Map on Brutal yet?

I don't mean multiple snipes coming from multiple ghosts, I meant one ghost rapid fire sniping like a machine gun like in beta where you can bring a full energy ghost down to around zero in less than 3-5 seconds or something. I recall it was possible with multiple ghosts as well so you can begin to ...

What? do you mean MC'ing Infestors with the Hive Mind building?


Yeah, though I don't think it ever worked on Leviathan but maybe that's cause he never got in range. I could never tell with that stupid building.
