I like what they're doing for the zerg race. The new Viper seems insanely useful; the speed upgrade for hydralisks should make them less horrible at everything; and I can't wait to see the new "artillery" unit that shoots Locusts. Zergs got their own Siege Tanks now!

The viper is definitely scary. As a Protoss player, I'd be really angry if my colossus was pulled down a cliff or our of my ball of gateway units. The off-creep speed upgrade for hydralisks is also something to fear. Any good Protoss or Zerg player knows that they're quite effective against gateway units. The new Protoss units are good but as always, they're expensive.

I like the new Nexus abilities: Arc Shield and Mass Recall.

The first ability adds additional shields and armour to any targeted building as well as a weapon similar to the photon cannon. I read that it can only target light units but I don't know if that is confirmed. Also, it has huge potential for cheese tactics (e.g. arc shield on stolen vespene geyser/in-base pylon). The second ability allows the player to teleport units home.

For those that aren't in the loop with the new MP details for Heart of the Swarm, you can read about it here.

Someones a viewer of lagtv... :laugh:

I'm not sure how I feel about the new units though. The multiplayer in SC2 is way to infuriating for me so I'll hold off on buying this game until it's on sale.

Here's a trailer for Blizzard DOTA. It looks like it could be a lot of fun.

I was at BlizzCon again this year, and Blizzard DOTA is seriously amazing. I can't wait for it to be released.

I also came in here to share a link that I think may be useful to other SC noobs like myself: http://day9.tv/archives/?search=Newbie. Scroll to the bottom and just start watching them one by one. It's so great to have various aspects of the game or strategies explained completely. I've got some friends who are pretty skilled (one in Masters), but they just can't seem to explain as well as Day[9] does. And even though these are called "Newbie Tuesday," they're for players up to Gold.

Hope this helps ;)

Ok Season 4 is better than I thought. Despite originally saying that the map pool would remain untouched, they still removed Searing Crater (********* map ever made) and replaced it with Metalopolis (best Blizzard-made map). So that's one very nice touch.

Among other news, I finally got placed in Master league. :cool:

Very nice, Dr_Asik. (Y) I mostly play 2v2 with my friend and we're hoping to get placed into diamond league.

My friend and I want to make plat but idk if that is going to happen. The highest I have placed is silver 1v1 but we do play well together, just played our first 2v2 placement matches in previous season when i was just starting.
