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:

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.

World of Starcraft

by on Jan.19, 2011, under StarCraft 2 Mods

Usually I’m not that much into custom maps or playing games on them, but this one made me smile so it seems worth mentioning to me 😉 (keep in mind that it’s in pre-release state). Behold World of Starcraft:
Video removed by ActiBlizzard

P.S.: The developers are still looking for people that participate in the creation of this modification. Visit if you’re interested.

Edit: The mod is not going to be called “World of Starcraft” because of copyright issues with ActiBlizzard concerning that name in particular. From what I’ve read so far it may still happen though ;).

Zergling Rush #1

by on Jan.09, 2011, under NoobCraft 2, RushCraft 2

I’m sure this is not going to be the last one I’ll show :D.

Now with great audio commentary by Xhinde and me :). If it sounds choppy or out-of-sync it’s because TS³ doesn’t record silence :-(.

I think I’m not going to write much about it other than this:

  • If you’re going for a rush, finish off both players quickly!
  • Hence: don’t let the remaining player tech!
  • keep an eye on your economy!
  • use the units you’ve got on the field!
