    I was waiting till midnight on the 19th to see their website for the announcement. :)

    I'm a little dissapointed. Honestly, I was expecting a persistant Starcraft, an MMORTS. Same overhead view, but you level up your units over long periods of time and gain items in a never-ending giant game with millions of others.

    Either that or an MMOFPS... Did anyone play 10Six? A 3d first person game where you run around a persistant world, building, defending, and attacking your camps and bases. Set that in the Starcraft universe and you'd have had a great game.

    um. yeah. july 27th, anyone? i'm preordered from amazon with overnight shipping.

    first look, SCB2 patch v11 -

    i've only played one round, but it was fucking stellar. I got a torrented version using SCallin1 and v7 starcrack AI which is very tough! i lasted 7 minutes before getting zinged by a protoss rush.

    im playing on an hp probook 4710s, 2.53ghz 4gb ram ATI 512mb video card. 7200rpm hdd, windows 7e.

    the game runs nearly full speed during the rush on "ultra" graphics settings, 1280x1024? resolution i believe. so computers that are lacking will probably be able to keep up at a lower setting once the RTM version ships. the graphics by the way, are amazing compared to the old starcraft. everything moves, and fluidly. everything you do produces a sprite of animation.

    in this patch of the beta they are still adjusting the strength of units, but EVERYTHING that is included in release (except the missions of course, beta is just 3v1 maps (unless hack) and multiplayer) such as music, sound effects, and of course unit animations.

    i didnt bother with any of the older versions, i wanted to make sure all of the elements of the game were included before downloading.

    when i get more time to play, i'll add to my review.

    whine, babies whine.

    so anyways i got into another battle, this time it was much easier for me since i had a mouse instead of using my touchpad.

    LOVE this game. lots more strategy involved. you gotta be quick. so cant wait for the 29th when i receive my copy :)
