I haven't played SC in ages, but I was addicted to it for a long time. These days I can't bring myself to play any Blizzard game online, I think it has something to do with me wishing everybody on Battle.net a slow, horrible, painful and embarrassing death.

I used to play it, but haven't in many years...

Zerg was probably the first class I played, but meh... Creepy if you ask me, sorta like em creatures in the "Aliens" movie :eek:

In the end, I think I ended up playing Protoss most...

Yep, the carriers are very potent.

I had to give my copies of SC and BW away because I just couldn't play anymore. I almost failed out of high school because of that game. To this day, it is STILL the greatest game ever made.

I liked the zerg the best. My favored tactic used to be hydra rush with dark swarm. They would trash any mass carrier or battlecruiser attack in very short order as well. In fact I think I still have a saved replay of a multiplayer game where I trashed two terrans and another zerg like that all by myself (It was a 3v3 game, one teammate was disconnected and the other one just kinda sat on his ass, and I even managed to keep him alive.)

Heh, guardians with hydralisks would pwn that setup :D

Bleh...WC3 engine just makes SC look too shiny and cartoony. Course, I never really liked WC3 though.

Terran of course ;D

I played the WC3 mod last night and it was fun, but the AI doesn't know what to do, so that kinda sucked. You definitely have to play against other people.

Yeh I tested it out lastnight and was a little dissapointed that you cant verse pc.

But other than that, awesome conversion.

What I love about Starcraft is that there is no one and only strategy. A carrier could be easily taken out by a bunch of scourge (zerg kamakazi birds) or neutered completly by a ghost using lockdown.

Also Archons could be made real vulnerable with the emp missiles from the science vessels.

My favourite side in Star Craft Brood Wars Would have to be the Protoss.
Dark Templar + mind control = win!

In normal Star Craft it would probably have to be Terran. They are the most versaitle units and the number of strategies possible with them are a lot more then with the Protoss or the Zerg.

I used to play a ton when I didn't have school and work in the way lol. I like the terran for a long time but finally got into the Protoss. I just like the high techiness so to speak. I bought SC for my iBook but I have yet to really play it. It's hard to play with a trackpad . . . especially during class.

I was fairly proficient with all three races but I was probably best with the Terrans. I used the Protoss for quite some time though.

You know, I have such an urge for playing this game again ever since sticking my nose into this thread.

I never actually answered the question, I realized...

I was a master with the Protoss. I always made an enormous army of Archons and leveled everyone. I was always a late game player, though, so I'd have to play with at least one other person who was an early game player so that they could protect me while I was building up the brute force that would eventually win later on.

Yes. :D

BTW you can buy the starcraft battle chest for like $10 now, which includes the original, the expansion, and a few guides.

I did a similar thing with the zerg only I would use lots of zerglings at first until I get a bunch of vespene gas and like 10 hatcheries, which would allow me to spawn 30 hydralisks per attack wave. Nobody would ever be able to keep up. My hydras would take out all of your archons in two waves, and then you wouldn't be able to rebuild fast enough for the third and fourth waves :D

Yeah just not a lot of time for games lately. I might have time later tonight tho.

BTW, I just happened to be looking in my closet for something else, and noticed I still have the box for this game :D

It has a coupon in it for $10 off of "Warcraft: Lord of the Clans" :D

Back when SC first came out, Archon mania was all the rage. Untill some one discovered that 3 science vessels with the EMP missile upgrade and 2 groups of marines could easily take out 12 odd archons in a few seconds.

An archon without a shield only has 10 HP. :p

Oh God, the geek in me got out...

Can't say much for the AI in this game. I can take them out by spawning nothing but zerglings :D

What's is that file for, AW? Is it a WC3 mod or is it a stand alone mini-game of some sort?

It's a replay for SC. What version about did you stop playing SC? They added an option to save your multiplayer or single player custom games as a replay after you finish it, and you can watch the whole game from start to finish. I think they implimented this somewhere around version 1.11 or so.

Here's another one with all zerglings against all protoss :D

When I kill them off, they still have a bunch of cloaked units and fliers left over that are attacking the zerglings on the ground one at a time, but it is hopeless because there are simply way too many of them.
