Just a few month more baby. I haven't played a good RTS since World in Conflict.

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.
