StarCraft 2 Patch 1.2.1 Live

by on Feb.16, 2011, under Software

Along with some battle.net downtime, Patch 1.2.1 went live last night. No changelog on the EU site as of the time of writing this. Feel free to view the patch-notes here: http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/blog/2298959#blog

BTW no posts on this blog in between the announcement of the patch and the patch itself. Poor me. Have to divert more time to this toy project of mine.

StarCraft 2 Patch 1.2.1 Development Information

by on Feb.05, 2011, under Software

Looks like five new 1v1 ladder maps are coming up soon, as well as some overall patching.

Matchmaking has been updated to better match players queuing with pre-made teams in 2v2, 3v3, and 4v4 brackets.

Whatever that means, it sounds interesting :D.

Aiur Chef, StarJeweled and Left2Die

by on Jan.28, 2011, under Software, StarCraft 2 Mods

… those official custom maps are now in beta testing, fire up a custom game and test the shit out of them NAOW!

More info and screenshots: http://eu.battle.net/sc2/en/blog/1735509#blog

I’m particularly interested in StarJeweled. I don’t know what it is about those darn “match three” puzzle games but they keep sucking me in ;).

The Kachinsky Tactic

by on Jan.27, 2011, under NoobCraft 2

While hanging out on Teamspeak yesterday one of our fellows that shall remain unnamed mentioned:

Every noob terran (who can be easily recognized by using the Kachinsky avatar) will lift off his main and take the island expansion.

That caused some laughter. Well, eXodus and I did change our avatars (OK – honestly I forgot) and tried. See for yourself :D:

Many thanks again to Reckless and JudasPriest for bearing with us :).

Tactical Nuke

by on Jan.25, 2011, under Noob Vs Noob, NoobCraft 2

I love the smell of Napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn’t find one of ’em, not one stinkin’ dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like … victory. Someday this war’s gonna end…

– Lieutenant Colonel Kilgore

There’s probably only one thing I prefer over that: the sight of nuclear explosions.

A little off topic, but I highly recommend the book “100 suns” by Michael Light. It’s a bit pricey. Nevertheless – if you’re into pictures of mind-boggling explosions you won’t be disappointed.

We Love Banelings

by on Jan.24, 2011, under Noob Vs Noob, NoobCraft 2

And here’s why :):

Baneling destruction + marine-marauder drop into base = win (I guess it could have been a win even if the teammate of Nitro would’ve been still there, but then again: who knows…).

Player Of The Month January 2011

by on Jan.22, 2011, under Noob Vs Noob, NoobCraft 2

Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve got a winner!

A very nice match between Daven(t) rduke(z) and mijai(p) hellas(t).

One thing to add to the commentary: mijai tried a 5-pool zergling rush in the game following up to this one. I guess that’s why he earned his medal, too. Besides that I’ve got nothing to add to what I’ve said in the video itself. Enjoy.
