SC2 at least a year before D3. I don't expect to see D3 until late 2011, at the earliest. SC2 is suppose to be released mid this year, my guess is July-August. That may be optimistic.

That download was painful!

First the good news, I am in and it's as fun as ever, sort of.

Now the bad news. Where fu(K have my reflexes gone to? Not that I was ever world champ, hell even champ on my own street, but I am getting pwnd, ALOT. I never used to get hammered like this. There have been some wins, don't get me wrong, but DAMN.

I don't even want to put my name up I am so embarrassed at this point. I need more practice.

Protoss Void Rays are over powered and over used.

I can't wait until I can play the AI so I can actually tech up and see some other units, and get my build order skills back! I have gotten Battlecruisers with Terrans, but it would be nice to just mess around a bit and actually learn other units some.

Only two glitches so far. I have to manually adjust my monitor to 1024 x 768 before launch or the games' display moves up leaving about the top 1/3 off. And there is a graphics glitch when I drop siege tanks, it only lasts a second or two.

Hopefully the others can chime in here, but my thoughts:

I hate to bring up rank/league, but I hardly see Void Rays in 1v1 Gold and above. I know you just started playing, so maybe identifying buildings and build orders is difficult at this point, but scout often, even sending a sacrificial unit in every so often. The Void Rays are slow moving, and can be destroyed relatively quickly.

Put your name up anyway (add us too!), a couple of the players on this forum are Bronze/Copper in 1v1 anyway. No one gives anyone a hard time, and we all AT with each other from time to time, or custom 2v2/1v1 for FUN. I haven't seen anyone from this forum talking 'ish on anyone else, and it's a good learning experience for all involved (I think).

I haven't experienced either of these glitches, make sure your video card drivers are up to date. I know one thing you can do to drastically increase FPS is disable shadows. You can put everything else on Ultra but leave shadows off to get over 60 FPS.

You can play with the AI on Very Easy (only). Make a custom game, and add AI. It's perfect for what you're asking; try things out and just mess around. Get your build orders, explore maps, get the timing of buildings down. It sounds like you're playing terran so learn to "wall-in," especially on smaller maps.

Anyway, glad to see you got your beta, hope to see you on soon!

why do you believe void rays are OP? yes, theyre strong and they can snipe your CC, hatch, or nexus.. but once you start to learn timing with your build orders/pushes, you'll find that if theyre rushing void rays you can most likely kill them before they can even attack you. scouting and countering builds with hard counters will nearly always win with correct scouting unless theyre just all around a better player than you..

I said the other players were better! I wasn't making excuses, just observations.

Voids are easy to kill but their weapons are OP imo, I can have my opinion right? For their cost, time to build, armor and speed (slowish) the are out of balance in comparison most other units. Blizzard games are the epitome of balance and imo those need a tweak or two.

Zerglings seem a bit strong too. Zerg rushes have always been a cheap method, but iirc they seemed weaker in SC1. What I mean here is that it seemed to take a couple/few more Zerglings in SC1 to pull off the same/similar result.

My build order is getting stronger, and I (we 2 x 2) have had some really awesome come from behind wins. A couple dominating victories too! Or the other guys just sucked LOL.

I (we) did get absolutely destroyed in a game yesterday. We had both massed a pretty impressive force, or so we thought! We massed up in the center, getting ready to go in an OMG. This f'g protoss guy had a mothership thing (and mass units) and literally wiped us off the map. We died SO f'g quick, it was actually entertaining. His terran partner didn't even need to show up. The beat down was so complete we didn't even have time to type "retreat". It literally took 2-3 seconds and ALL our units were gone. We made the obvious newb error of being massed up like that. We should have split up, at least somewhat, but the Proto alone had us beat. It wouldn't have mattered anyway.

Mega- I updated my drivers immediately before install, so that's not specifically it. They may not be 100% compatable, but they are up to date. I will be sending in a thorough description to Blizzard in a few more games.

iirc, they've already been nerfed at least once.

on the contrary, the general consensus is that zerglings are weaker in sc2.

Zerglings are indeed weaker in this one, as your worker units can stop non-upgraded Zerglings.

The funny thing is, is here on the US Servers, Protoss are considered OP, but on the Korean Servers, Zerg are considered OP and majority of the players there are using them.

It'd be interesting to see an intermingling of the two play styles...
