Starcraft 2

Hello fellow star craft players,

Just wondering how many of you are out there and if anyone else is excited for Heart of the Swarm? What is your favorite race? Any special strategies you guys have found that work particularly well?

Me and Pandamonium play SC2.
I'm not a hardcore guy and I only like to play with others lol...

Cheesing seems amusing enough

I have it but haven't played it for ages (months) too many other games to play and a new tank. Not bothered by the expansion as I don't play the game enough to warrant buying the DLC. When I do play I play as Protos.

I play random. I'm only a top 5 gold. I don't play that much in a day but I've been playing since SC 1!

After my son poured juice all over my old gaming PC and fried it, I lost touch with SC2 or any PC gaming for that matter. Just so happens I reinstalled SC2 last week on my current PC and noticed Heart of the Swarm ads all over battlenet. Checked out the trailer and told myself if I get money back from my taxes this year, I'm buying it!

I have a platinum ranking but being away for so long I might as well be bronze all over again.

Haha, yea I figured you'd be in the mix with your avatar and all Nick. Oh Tychus. I haven't really gotten into competitive gaming yet, I just dabble around in the non-ladder games. I would like to play in a more competitive setting, but I also play a lot of TF2 so the one or so hour every two days that I have free time, I divide up between both games, not equally though.

I mainly played the campaign and played with friends.

I was a VERY hardcore (top 50 world guild..top 10 a couple times) WoW player since classic and was #1 ranked mage dps/damage wise on WoL a couple times. I played way to much WoW to get heavy into SC2.

.....then I met my wife and got married...now I don't play video games much at all

Team Fortress.... I dabbled in that game a tiny bit when it first came out. I use to play Half-Life back in the day so I know how addicting those kind of games can be lol. Kids tend to change your perspective in life though so I haven't touched any PC games in years, other than SC2.

Anyone play Clash of Clans on their iDevices? Now that game is like CRACK!! lol Can't seem to put down my iPhone for like 3 months now.

Yea, mass marines (med-evacs) with tanks and vikings is a hell of a combo.

I play too. Hit me up if you wanna play some games. So few people now...LoL's fault

HotS I really dont care that much tbh since im not particularly happy by the new units for terran (I am terran). I also was not happy with the direction of the game and balance in general since DKim has no clue how to balance and game and when he does, he just scraps a salvageable unit. I know I will buy it, play it, it will get much better but so far in beta, blizz has not won my preorder. I am ok paying an extra $10, i just want Blizz to earn my purchase. Also, Hots terran is virtually the same so far as in WOL terran. Slight differences but mech still suffers from immobility. Widow mines are great for some area control but more than 10 means ur army is 20 food smaller. Hellbats were super good for raiding and killing lings so that really helps the ling heavy style, but i mean cmon, firebat and spider mines? I already played BW.

Hows about a trade I'll send you SC2:HotS and you send me some shrimp

I loved Blizzard games, but F@#$ Activision. I'm glad they dropped the release price for SC2:HotS from 60 to 40. Still not sure if I'm going to get it, after the D3 debacle. I'm not bitter or anything
