Does anybody here play this amazing game?

I'm looking for a 1v1 practice partner and/or a league 2v2 partner.

BTW, if you like RTS games or have played SC1 then you will be in love with SC2. Trust me give it a shot, I'm seriously addicted.

Tag is: MurderedOut
code: 847

Add me if anyone plays, i'm on daily and always down for some matches.

Disappointed in CB, to say the least. I really expected some people to be playing SC2 here. You all seem to have decent taste in games. How sad, ya'll are missing out on the best game ever made. :P

What are you talking about? I play plenty of Minecraft...

QBPit Spawn [Abyssal Specters] January 4 2011 3:36 PM EST

I was disappointed in SC2, don't play it much any more.

Kefeck [BlackSmith] January 4 2011 4:07 PM EST

Need more info..

Is it a free to play?

Also what are the minimum system specs? My machine is a little bit older :(..

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] January 4 2011 4:09 PM EST

Its too pricey still in my opinion and I didn't think it was that good. Got bored with it pretty quickly.

QBPit Spawn [Abyssal Specters] January 4 2011 4:10 PM EST

Yea, I'm having a lot more fun with my recently acquired Supreme Commander 2.

BHT - I play somewhat frequently but as I'm on winter break I'm away from my computer that has it.

I'll get back to it around the 9th, and we can play at that point :) How good are you? What tier do you typically play?

AdminTitan January 4 2011 5:34 PM EST

I'll add you here in a little bit, I'm Titan on there too. I play Monday and Tuesday nights a lot, also Friday in the afternoon/early night and Late Saturday night. (These are the times when my gf works) I'll be busy this week though, so maybe more next week.

I would play but my laptop is well below minimum specifications for the graphics card so it don't work properly. Good game till it became more unplayable than it already was. (my units went from normal, poor graphics to shadows)

Card Master-
You can buy it on Amazon for $50 with free shipping. After that it's completely free. However, it is the 1st game in a 3 game series. Each game's campaign will revolve around a single race instead of having them all into one game, I do expect the other 2 games to be a little cheaper though, hopefully. The Multiplayer side is most likely not going to change much from the first game, which is a good thing.

considering the fact that blizzard charged full price for each expansion of WoW, i dont see why they would change their money ways.

BHT January 5 2011 8:30 PM EST

Yeah they most likely will charge full price, it's blizzard, but we can only hope they dont :P

Won my first tourney today:

If anybody that plays is looking to get more competative, check out teamliquid.net they have a tournament tracker and host many themselves. Most of them are free to join (if you qualify) and usually include a cash prize/game goodies/coaching for the winners.

Demigod January 7 2011 1:18 AM EST

Good job... did'ja win anything?

BHT January 7 2011 1:27 AM EST

Nope I didnt make the prize which was only $25 for the one I entered. I There were 4 divisions, I won my division (silver). The prize money was only for the people in the top division (platinum) I believe.

Aww I pirated it.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 7 2011 8:02 AM EST

BHT I suck and I haven't played in forever but when I get around to it I'll add you. My nick is Xenogard so you'll know me when I add you.

Canibus January 7 2011 9:58 AM EST

Diamond is the top division btw. I doubt there are many here that play on the european server though. Ive played very little 1on1 since I just cant stand losing when its solely my own effort.

But I agree that its shameful that people don't play this game more intensely, its continuation of the blessed years of 1997-2000 :)
