The Starcraft Thread

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Alex, Dec 26, 2005.

  1. Finally, a thread dedicated to the best PC game of all time. Share strategies and what not if you wish. I would like to organize a bassist only SC tournament. Anyone want in? Tell me what you think the format should be (2v2. FFA, etc...)

    btw my SC name is Heezy_Fo_Sheezy. Anyone ever played with me on b.net?
  2. Dude... 1998 called... it wants it's RTS back.

    It's a great game, but so dated that I doubt it even runs on my PC or Mac.

    Warcraft 3 on the other hand...

    Why even stop with Starcraft? Let's go back some more and play Total Annihilation.

    Total Annihilation is without a doubt the best RTS I have ever played.

    Something about it, but I have never had RTS matches that have come anywhere near the intensity and epic of a typical TA match. Starcraft is childs play comparatively.

    Shoot, I thought this thread was about campers
  8. RTS = ?

    Starcraft is old, but still very popular. There are like 5,000 people on b.net at all times.

    I used to love RTS's back in the C&C: Red Alert days but now I just don't have the patience for them. I remember some really long matches with my friends that were alot of fun.

    I also remember that losing at an RTS pissed me off more than any other genre of game. :mad:

    Tekken is really the only game that interests me anymore.
  10. RTS = Real-Time Strategy

    I used to be a big SC player years back. Got to the point where I could beat 7 computers all against me. You figure out their AI after a while. :)

    Had some really great games on Bnet, too. I love that game. I still play it every once and a while on a network.

    Me too :hyper:

    But havent played much since I lost my cd... :meh:
    Maybe I should buy it again :D

    That was a great game.
    Blizzard should hurry up and continue making SC2 :rolleyes:
  13. SC2 for PC? I thought that was gonna be for like PS2.

    Anyone interested in the tournament? I'm not like good or anything, so don't be intimidated.

    How can you guys resist an all bassist SC tournament?!?!?

    SC is still a great game. It's incredibly well balanced and fun. I think my favorite RTS is C&C Generals, but the simplicity of SC makes it a classic. I live for Aiur.
  15. Now thats an idea... TA is down right amazing... i still like to play that.
  16. I loved Starcraft. Firebats owned.

    TA, was kinda cool too, but the sequal? TA, Kingdoms or whatever? Yeah that sucked ass.

    I cant get battle.net working, im getting that error with the 'unable to connect to modem,' etcetc/ My router and cable is fine, its nothing with my internet. Any ideas?
  18. Diablo 2 mofo's.

    There are too many Korean starcraft players now. And if you play Korean's in Starcraft, you loose.
