Re: Weather System

I always thought it would be cool to be playing on a jungle word, and then rain slowly starts falling over the battlefield. I don't think it should affect gameplay in multiplayer though, it would add...

Re: BE HEARD! Sept Discussion Topic: The Mothership

I'll attempt to answer as many of those questions as I can in this post. One issue with the Mothership is that it seems to typical for an alien race to have a mothership-type unit. It does have some...

Re: Hiveship?

Apart from saying a Zerg capital ship would be ripping something else off, I'm against it simply because it would reduce the distinction between the races. I thought it was better that the Terran and...

Re: Dark Templar: The Final Judgment (with screenshots)

Taken a little too far, but worth a chuckle. I liked the "Bees Inc." especially.

Re: IMO SC2 doesn't screecap well..

SC2 doesn't screencap as horribly as you guys make it out, I think it's screenshots look pretty damn good. However, they take on a whole new dimension seeing them in motion.

Re: What's wrong with Starcraft 2 (a Video!)

Re: I Like the New Ghost

The Nuke is different from the Marine pods because once the Nuke lands, the damage is done. Ghosts are a high end unit, so by that time the enemy is going to have enough forces that are going to tear...
