Heart of the Swarm- Upcoming SCII expansion.

What is Starcraft?
Quote:
StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is a military science fiction real-time strategy video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment as a sequel to the award-winning 1998 video game StarCraft. The game was developed for concurrent release on Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. StarCraft II is split into three installments: the base game with the subtitle Wings of Liberty, and two expansion packs, Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void. On May 3, 2010, publisher Activision Blizzard announced that Wings of Liberty would be released worldwide on July 27, 2010.

Set in the 26th century in a distant part of the Milky Way galaxy, the game is built around three species: the Terrans, human exiles from Earth; the Zerg, a race of insectoid genetic assimilators; and the Protoss, a species with vast psionic power. Wings of Liberty will focus on the Terrans specifically, while the expansions Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void will focus on the Zerg and Protoss, respectively. The game is expected to be set four years after the events of StarCraft: Brood War, and follow the exploits of Jim Raynor as he leads an insurgent group against the autocratic Terran Dominion. The game will include old characters from the original game, as well as introduce new characters and locations to the franchise.
Sounds cool, where can I learn more?
Quote:
Blizzard's own Battle.net forums are a good place to start--a solid mix of newbies and veterans hang out there to ask and answer questions. If you're looking for people with a stronger competitive streak (and plenty of free time), however, drop by the Team Liquid home page and forums for a chance to chat with bona fide professional players, or read their Liquipedia II wiki for plenty of information on competitive StarCraft.

Visual learners, on the other hand, would do well to subscribe to HuskyStarCraft and HDStarCraft on YouTube. Not only do they regularly broadcast (and provide commentary for) matches between professional StarCraft II players, but they occasionally produce tutorial videos, as well.

If you're looking for a StarCraft II coach, Sean "Day[9]" Plott is about as close as you can get; in his Day[9] Daily online series, he systematically dissects and explains StarCraft II replays with the patience and detail of your favorite college professor. He doesn't focus exclusively on the pros, either--check the archive for episodes devoted to debugging lower-level play as well.
Thanks! Now that I have all the info, where can I test out my uber 1337 skills?

Starcraft is one of the most competitive games the world has ever seen. Its perfect gameplay and wonderful balance have earned it a spot in the hearts of many gamers, especially the South Koreans who have their own proleague circuit and three television channels dedicated to showing starcraft matches. Unfortunately, most foreigners have no chance at playing there. However, you should always be on the lookout for open tournaments and weekly leagues. TL's tournament forum is a great place for a rising player to find the opportunity he/she needs to be known.

How come I'm not moving up a league after winning 10 games in a row?
Quote:
Leagues and placement are based off of MMR (Match Making Ratio) So you need to get your percentage up to move up a league
What are some good sites for Starcraft II information?
Quote:
Well here of course but some great sites are as follows

I want to watch people play! What are some good channels that I can watch and learn?
I want to upload videos to youtube!
Quote:
First you must save the replay, then use a recording program (Fraps is very popular) and record the replay, then save it and upload in proper format.

Looking for people to play with?
Please PM me your identifier in the format of NAME.### and I will add you to the list.

holy poop, I actually beat somebody who went for that forge opening with mass cannon into mass void.

He didn't play as well though, he went for mass colossi instead of just a standard deathball so my hydra/bl/corrupter raped the **** outta him.

Down in wood league I've been winning a lot of my PvZs recently, at least on forge FE maps, with 7 gate timings. If I don't kill them outright I at least kill their 3rd/prevent them from taking a 3rd while taking my own, then tech to colossus or high templar.

I almost never do stargate play.

I go through weird swings; right now my TvZ is legit as ****; Hellion to Banshee harrass to tech switch to marine+tank+medivac is legit as ****.

Taking advantage of the fact that zergs have to choose between making units, or drones, but not both, at the same time while terran have that huge advantage of mining off one base with mules. Makes for a good day.

Now my TvP is literal garbage; I mostly turtle, try to harass now and again, and hopefully get him to commit to fight against my bunkers and siege; Toss sucks against that Terran D.
