Exclamation StarCraft 2 Discussion - FAQ & Guidelines

FAQ (Read if you're new to this forum)

Welcome to the StarCraft 2 FAQ! Here we try to answer all of the commonly asked questions of the StarCraft 2 Forums. Please read through them if you are new to the forums. That will save us all a lot of time and unnecessary efforts. If you think of something that should be in here or something that should be changed, please send me or one of the SC Moderators a PM.

General StarCraft 2 Information:

First of all, there is no official information about the release or production of StarCraft 2. All we know is that Blizzard does plan on returning to the StarCraft Universe some time in the future, as stated in the Official Starcraft FAQ.

StarCraft 2 Rumors:

Any Starcraft 2 rumors or development information you’ve heard is false. There have been several mods of other games that have been mistaken as StarCraft 2. These include a mod for C&C: Generals, Xel’Naga’s Vengeance (though this has been shutdown by Blizzard), and a mod for Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, otherwise known as Project Revolution.

(Certain sections have been put in bold, for extra emphasis on those gullible enough to think that random websites can tell us more about a game than its developers.)

http://video.google.com/videosearch?q=starcraft+2 - This is not a SC2 movie.

[new faq under construction]

- Petitions
- The SC2 Video on Google (With the Generals Mod)
- Threads asking "Why isn't Starcraft 2 here?"
- Warcraft vs. Starcraft threads.
- Thread copies.

To bring some of you up to speed, here is the following information that extends beyond the singleplayer campaigns in Starcraft and Starcraft: Brood War.

Dark Origin:
By beating BW Zerg mission #9 with more than 5 minutes left on the timer (without using the instant-win cheat), you will activate the secret mission, Dark Origin. In this mission, you play as Zeratul, and discover that Duran is not Kerrigan's pawn, but is a servant of an unnamed race. Duran's mission is to create Hybrids of Protoss and Zerg. Duran claimed that he had seeded the Hybrids on many worlds, and that Zeratul would not be able to find them all before they were complete. Who Duran works for is a mystery. It may be the Xel'Naga, and it may not be. There is no proof.

Deception:
Deception is a bonus mission downloadable from Blizzard's map archives. This mission takes place shortly after Brood War. It follows three space pirates who infiltrate a Confederate Science Facility, and what they discover there. In this mission, you see Infested Stukov, resurrected and infested into the swarm. Also, at the end of mission, you are informed of the titles of "secret files" that you pick up throughout the map. The list of these secret files are contained in the text script.

Resurrection IV:
Resurrection IV takes place shortly after Deception. Raynor and an ancient Protoss warrior, Taldarin, are sent to Braxis by Artanis to deinfest Stukov using a new nanotech serum. Raynor and Taldarin succeed, and escape. After their escape, the Protoss bombard the surface of Braxis. Zeratul's location is currently unknown.

Proof of canonicity (Search for 64)

Starcraft: Ghost:
Although there was a considerable amount of information released about the storyline of Starcraft: Ghost, the game's production has been "suspended indefinitely". As such, the information we learned about the game and its storyline can only be used as a speculation, and not as fact.


Books:
As of now, there are several Starcraft books written by Blizzard, as well as independent authors. Any books written by independent authors should not be considered canon. Regardless, information from any of the Starcraft books should not be held as fact if used in discussions or debates.

Starcraft 2 Unknowns:
This is the section about the things in Starcraft 2 that we don't know now.

"Duran is a servant...", but who does he work for?
It is unknown as to who Duran really works for. Some say it is the Xel'Naga, others say that he works for another race. Only the future will reveal this.



Any questions that you feel should be included should be PMed to me, and we can discuss it. But the questions should be general, not too specific. We don't know that much.

Starcraft 2 Misconceptions:

Infested Protoss = Hybrids
Not true. Hybrids will be creatures born as a genetic fusion of Protoss and Zerg DNA. However, as Kerrigan has evolved from a mere infested Terran into a Terran/Zerg hybrid, infested Protoss could become genetic hybrids over time. Regardless, they would still not be the same creatures as Hybrids, since their genetic makeups will be different. This is, of course, assuming that the Zerg will gain the ability to successfully infest Protoss.
Note: Raszagal's mind was under the control of Kerrigan, she was not infested.

Infestation = Assimilation
Nope. A creature being infested by the Zerg does not guarantee their assimilation into the Zerg Swarm, although it does mark the possibility that that species could be assimilated soon. The original Overmind had the goal of assimilating the Terrans because of their growing psionic potential. Although Terrans are very easily infested, they clearly haven't been assimilated yet. When a species is assimilated, one or more of the following three things happen.
1. The entire Zerg Swarm gains an evolutionary advantage.
(Example: carapaces allowing them to survive in the vacuum of space)
2. A new Zerg strain is created.
3. An existing strain is improved upon.
(Example: the addition of lurkers to the hydralisk strain)

Xel'Naga = Hybrids
WTF. There is no possible way for this to be true, using simple logic. How could the Xel'Naga be trying to create the perfect race if they were already a perfect race?

Water Units in Starcraft 2!
There are several reasons why water units will not be appearing in SC2. Some people still argue, but the overwhelming majority agree, for these reasons and more.
1. In SC, water is used as nothing more than a barrier for ground units.
2. On every type of terrain, water is no different than magma, tar, and empty space.
3. Although there is a surprisingly large number of planets with water in the Koprulu Sector, only half of the current terrains even have water.
4. Why float, when you can fly?
