Niss. SC2 is a ridiculous learning curve. It use to be pretty easy to familiarize yourself with it, and there was a very linear curve in skill, nowadays with so many youtube casts and live streams your average player is way more skilled than your average player from back in SC1/BW...You pretty much have to devote your time to watching casts or playing with better people to even get anywhere, otherwise it's the equivalent of handing a person a 15,000 piece lego set with no instructions and telling them to get to it!

All I can say is, after getting "good" at SC2, and that's an over statement probably, I can really respect the Asian gamers, and the other americans/eu players out there that play this at GSL level, I thought learning chess was tough, SC2 is a whole nother ball game. Makes chess look like a dumbed down version of checkers.

I'm down to play CS:GO with you glory (acdc102), MW3 too, or Black ops. I've even got some friends you can tag a long with us in CS:GO, lots of fun ensues.

Edit:

Also, my rigs are as follows

KNIGHT aka dust collector/ohshitlaptopdied - Some ranodm XBLADEZ case, ordered wrong one off newegg 8 years ago, didn't care enough to return, it's awfully gawdy but w/e. Currently has a Asus P5QE Mobo, Quad Core clocked at 3.2Ghz, Radeon 4850, 200G HDD, 4 Gig Ram

ORION - G73JW I ordered through Xoticpc.com, First gen i7 clocked at 1.78Ghz, Nvidia 460M, 128G SSD 500 HDD, 10 Gig Ram - Was instantly sold that it was styled after an F117 Stealth Bomber, lol. Bit of an impulse buy at the time (2 years ago) but I don't regret it, it still runs everything that I play at better than acceptable frames.


UNKNOWN - New Laptop comes in tomorrow, pulled the trigger with Razer and got the refreshed, or R2 version or the Razer Blade laptop. Trades off pure power for sleek/sexy/portability and on paper sounds like the perfect machine for me. Benchmarks at about 3-4 times my current laptop, which I said plays everything at high rates already...sooooo I'm basically becoming future proofed (for me) and getting a light, sexier looking beast.

G73 is up for sale though if anyone is interested - Putting the money towards updating the Wife's computer. Hers is just about the lines as my Desktop except a 64 gig SSD I think, with a 500 HDD external and a Radeon 6750. Looking to get her a new, bigger SSD, new Mobo, i7 or i5, maybe a new video card if there's anything left over

Anyone think 1,000 is too pricey for what the G73 has? After putting all the extras I put on it, the total price tag was around 2500 new, so I think that price is fair :/

Nah it was Protoss. Actually uninstalled it waiting on the expansions that were supposed to provide a Protoss and Zerg campaign...

Yep, precisely what the ram is for. I make music on my free time and those high quality samples take a ton of room if you don't want to continually be rendering. I used to have 8gb in my old rig and it would max out in about 30 mins. Biggest offender is session drummer, basically a midi plugin using high quality samples.

I was pretty into StarCraft years ago but only for fun with friends and custom maps. Does anyone play SC2 that way or is it all a bunch of competitive people? I've been meaning to buy it but have zero interest in super hardcore competition. I prefer to have a few drinks while playing

Also, downloaded Planetside 2 beta last night to try out this weekend. Never got a chance to try the original but it seemed like the best way for me to actually enjoy an FPS game so I'm glad they made another one. Hopefully it will be good.

I enjoy playing old games mostly. HOMM3, diablo 2, fallout 1/2(every year or so), serious sam series(coop with gf), Q3A, torchlight 2. Recently played baldur's gate 2 and sacred(german diablo clone). Vanilla WoW was nice.
