A Year of Starcraft II
One More Down. Plus, A Request.
Yesterday, when I went back to play another mission of the campaign, I finished the medivac mission where you have to beat the queen of blades to the towers. It was actually annoying, having to drop everything and even eventually move my entire base when the minerals ran out. I got the point of it, but it feels like the campaign is going to just introduce arbitrary obstacles to make things harder from now on. This was extra obvious when I tried the next mission, where you have to constantly move because of the fire. Maybe it’s just me being tired of the campaign, but I got annoyed and quit out of it. That makes it 17 missions down, 8 more (I guess) to go.
Tonight I couldn’t go back to that mission. I watched another Day9, #312, about improving and working on little bits of the game. Incremental adjustments, etc. It was perhaps jumping the gun a bit, but I once again came away knowing a lot more than when I went in. After that, I went back to the first Zerg challenge (still no silver or gold), and then played a few games vs. the AI. I know, I said I wasn’t going to do that anymore (as a few of you have told me not to), but I needed to finish out my two hours for today. So, as Zerg, I beat Terran. As Protoss, I lost against Zerg. I have fun as Zerg now, after the help I received. I make shitloads of lings, maybe morph a group into the banelings, and then attack. If it doesn’t work, however, I would have no idea where to go from there.
I should mention that last night, after I had already played for about five hours, I went over to warpprism.com and was watching Destiny’s stream. It was very interesting to listen to him and his friends discuss the build and what was going on as he played. Also pretty funny since the guy sounds like Steve Buscemi, and I then pictured him sitting there playing Starcraft II in a spacesuit ala Armageddon.
The request I have is for a few people to play some 1v1 Saturday after 1130pm (Central US) and late afternoon on Sunday. I want to get a little experience before I do the placement matches sometime in the coming week. Also, I want to have some fun and take a little break from the campaign. Either get with me in game (LeTemps 975), here or on reddit (le_temps). I am up for pretty much anything.
