The World Of Professional Starcraft
All of this is testament to Starcraft’s status as the finest spectator video game ever created. Even for cosmically unskilled viewers, watching Lee Jae-Dong execute a Zerg rush is exhilarating. Spend more than a few minutes in the company a rabid fan or glued to a well-commentated game and you’ll soon understand how a single video game was powerful enough to enrapture an entire nation.
Disconnect at the Global StarCraft League Finals Has Fans Shouting "We Want LAN!"
That Team Prime's MarineKing won the Global StarCraft II League finals held during the Starcraft II IPL 4 tournament in Las Vegas earlier this month comes as no surprise to fans of competitive gaming. The fact that he might have lost if not for a last-minute dropped connection, on the other hand...
StarTale player Won "PartinG" Lee Sak had Lee "MarineKing" Jung Hoon on the ropes. MarineKing's resources were tapped, he had barely any units left to defend himself. It looked as if the man many consider to be one of the world's greatest players was about to go down.
And then the internet connection went down.
Luckily for photographer Carlton Beener, StarCraft II lead designer Dustin Browder was in the audience. His reaction is priceless.
You’ll Be Able To Recover Crashed Games In The Next StarCraft II Expansion
Say your StarCraft II match ends prematurely, either by crash or lightning strike or murder or whatever. Right now, your only option is to suck it up and start a new game. But when Blizzard releases the expansion pack Heart of the Swarm, you'll be able to recover a crashed match by loading up the replay and jumping back in.
Starcraft II: Where’s Me Warhound?
As we’ll see, the removal of the Warhound was probably the right decision – but also lost is the concept that went with it. The Warhound was the poster-boy for Terran vs Protoss in Heart of the Swarm, the unit that would make a manly Mech build against those uppity aliens have a bit more punch. At the moment almost every Terran plays out this matchup with a bio force, and if it reaches lategame said bio force dies to the AoE of the famous deathball. Generalisation much? Sure: but over two years of playing and watching Wings of Liberty, Terran bio vs Protoss is overwhelmingly how this matchup seems to pan out.
