I've been playing the beta, and all I have to say is this is a sick sick game. Perfectly balanced. No matter what strategy your enemy throws at you, there is a counter if you scout it soon enough. It's all about strategy and intelligence, and outmaneuvering your enemy. I'm sure the SP will be good, but multiplayer is the reason to buy the game.

Please tell me it isn't true about no Lan option for this. I have been waiting for this game for years, this would totally suck if it is true. Please say it isn't so.

I'll buy it on day 1, not the collector's edition though, that's too expensive for me. I'll play the campaign, complete it, maybe two times (on different difficulty levels if there are any) and then move on to the multi-player and get my ass handed back to me on a silver plate since I've always sucked at on-line RTS games, although I'm "good" against the A.I I guess... so I might end up sticking myself to off-line skirmishes (and I hope that off-line skirmishes against A.I opponents is present in SCII).

I only play campaign in RTS, multi is way out of my league, but I look forward to it.

Had the collector's edition preordered on amazon since day one, but I might keep it sealed and sell it someday, buying a normal version to actually play. We shall see.

There's no LAN in the beta, but I have no idea if they'll have it in the final release. Either way it isn't really necessary, as Battle.Net 2.0 essentially provides the same service. It's blazing fast. Never really experienced any lag in games. And you have a friend list, so just keep all your LAN buddies on your friends list and you can play games against each other.

Right now I'm just playing 2s with my little brother. Since then we have been face rolling our way through the gold league. If they start putting up 3v3 and 4v4 games though, for sure I'll play with some of you guys.

in the Q&A on twitter they said 3v3 and 4v4 would be coming mid may! I hope there is still plenty of life left in the beta :]

also some zerg and terran buffs coming!

bleh...

Zerg and Terran don't need buffs. But if they do buff them, I hope they buff protoss in the AA department.

"We are looking at changes to the Corruptor. We are looking at the balance on Ultralisk and Infestor."
" We did find a few units this week that we felt were less responsive than we wanted (Hellion for example) and we will be making some changes to make them more responsive in a future patch.

If anything the corrupter is going to get a nerf as it's superior to anything air to air.

Why does it take so dang long to download a patch for the beta? I've been updating ALL DAY!!!! WTF???!?!?!?!?

They're using torrent as the updater, so sometimes it is slow. Somebody made an FTP with all the updates though, you'll just have to look for it.

Pretty excited about the buffs they plan to do for zerg. Ultralisk and corruptor hopefully will become a standard unit in the zerg army...instead of just never being built and just transform to broodlords.

corruptors are extremely weak anti air units.

and i am so glad they are taking a look at the dam force fields.

and yes there is no LAN function in sc2. Its all done through b.net 2.0

Finally launched the game real fast and now my screen is flickering on and off at the main title screen. I'm going to download some new drivers over at NVIDIA and try it out.

There is no need to buff corrupters. If they give it a buff I hope they reduce build time. Once they evolve them to brood lords it's game over. Brood lords absolutly lay waste to any ground forces. And there is no need to nerf force field. Proper use of FF is what makes or breaks a toss player.

It's a collection of about 10 patches. One of which contains the map editor.

brood lord is a different unit. corrupter is another unit.

takes bloody for eva to get brood lords out.

Ah. Well I finally got to play a quick match against a "noob" but I got my butt handed to me. Apparently he was extremely good at SC1 and . . . . yeah . . .

I've got to add you guys to my friends list. I'm just "sixstorm". Let's play!
