The HotS makes the transition from campaign to online play very seamless.

To get prepared, you can opt to go thru a tutorial, do exercises, or play vs a much improved progressive AI that adjusts to your level of skill.

I have done the tutorials in the past and i just am not very good against real people. I do rather well against AI just Humans think more erratically than the computer will.

No, no. Unfortunately i don't have money for collector's edition. I'm buying standard edition HOTS - and among rewards there is a couple of collector's so I hope I'll win ;)

Regardless which race you play, there's a certain loop than needs to be always happening in your game:

zerg - build drones, inject larvae, build overlords
terran - build SCV, drop mules, build depos
protoss - build probes, chronoboost, build pylons

Once you've become accustomed to always doing this no matter what is happening, your game will improve.

Of course, you also need to be building your production facilities and units and looking at the minimap at all times.

If I get it the reason will be fore the campaign as the Wings of Liberty was actually really good as far that went. The online play is tear your hair out frustrating if you don't make a full time job of it to bother with though.

Same here! not interested in multiplayer at all. I've played RTS games online before and got my arse kicked every time. Human players are brutal, even the toughest AI is a cake walk against a human player :/ This is turning into a very expensive month! gonna have to let this one slide till my finances recover! (already got/preordered Tomb Raider and BioShock: Infinite) but will definitetly pick this up when I can. Really enjoyed WoL (Y) :happy:

I'm in the same boat as the rest of you saying "I suck at online SC2!" Maybe we should form a Neowin Crap SC2 Player league. At the end we could have a tournament and whoever wins gets kicked out of the league.

Multiplayer SC2 is just WAY to competitive for me to enjoy. I can't think that fast anymore :p.

WoL single player campaign was quite good, so I may get HotS for just the single player. My only complaint about WoL is I wish it were a bit longer.
