AH, Starcraft 2. It’s been months (years?) since I last played Heart of the Swarm, and I wasn’t sure if I would end up getting the new Legacy of the Void protoss expansion~ but it’s Christmas time, and my bro is awesome so… NOW I’VE GOT THE GAME 8D
Oh these note pads :’D. This is gonna sound silly but I’m slightly disappointed by the fact this notepad design is not Protoss/Starcraft exclusive. Where’s the consistency? I don’t want a generic Blizzard image, XP.
I spent some time checking out the new features, game modes (archon mode, CO-OP, vs AI) and had a glimpse of the new units. Most of the game feels about the same, except I’ll probably have to learn new build order/openings since the timing is all crazy off with additional starting workers, and less mineral patches. Interesting to see how I can incorporate the new Terran units too. They’re kinda weird at the moment, haha.
Yesterday along with cBsM, I attended the ‘ASRock’s M8 Sydney Showdown’ a free StarCraft 2 event held at the UNSW Roundhouse organised by Oceanic eSports. It was my first SC2 event and I was super excited for the day since my Terran hero IMMvp, a 4 time GSL Code S Champion will be there for the day :D :D Yaaaayy
The event was supposed to start at 12.15pm, but due to technical difficulties, we end up sitting in the audience seat for about 2 hours waiting for something to happen. Mvp was probably getting restless, as he started queuing up ladder games and playing placement matches XD (He end up in Silver league)

Last night my Starcraft 2 clan finally hit masters league in 4v4! This is the first time we’ve achieved this as a group so we’re pretty happy about it :D Now that we’ve reached the highest league on SEA, we’ve migrated to the Korean/Taiwanese server for more challenges. Surprisingly, there’s a lot less lag playing over there than on AUS/NZ @_@. Not that I’m complaining XD
Look what I received today!! Jacky made me a model of the Terran Battlecruiser. Doesn’t it look so AWESOMELY EPIC? :D It’s just like the real thing…except it’s made out of paper! Yes..paper! When I first saw it I wasn’t even sure what it was made of until I touched it, eheheee.
Today is the official launch of Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm~ and I can barely contain my excitement!! I dropped by JB during my lunch break and grabbed it for $44 :) Now it’s just sitting here on my desk, waiting to be taken home :3 It’s funny how things feel different when it actually happens :D I wasn’t even that excited about it 2 weeks ago XD
I still haven’t completed the “Wings of Liberty” Campaign, but I don’t mind going back to that at a later date. For now, I just want to check out all the new features in “Heart of the Swarm”, play some ladder and gain some EXP!
I don’t have many friends who are into Starcraft 2.. let alone ones who read this blog, but whatever~ it’s going on this blog! :D :D
“StarCrafts” is an adorable series of short Starcraft 2 themed animations created by the awesome folks at CarbotAnimations (I believe it’s run by 1 person) A new episode is released every Saturday and it always brings me a smile when I check on Mondays during work :)
This is the latest episode that’s been released at the time of writing. Gosh I love that Queen >.< I hope these never stop being made!
I wonder if people feel the same way about MoonSticks, as I feel about StarCrafts?
As some of you may know, I love Starcraft 2, a military science fiction real-time strategy video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment. I’ve previously posted several blog entries related to my experiences on the ladder. I don’t consider myself a “gamer”, as I don’t play video games all that much. However, Starcraft 2 is a bit of an exception. I know, that sounds weird considering it’s one of the most difficult and competitive video games out there. Many players feel frustrated and their fear of losing deters them from the game entirely. If you lose, you have no one to blame but yourself. It can make you feel pretty bad, and why play a stressful game that makes you feel horrible when games are supposed to be fun? The match-making system also pits you against other players of similar skill level, so you will lose about 50% of the games. It is inevitable.
Jacky got me this amazing Razor BlackWidow Ultimate mechanical gaming keyboard for my birthday :D yaaaay. It’s such a beauty and I love the sound of the clicks ^^ It will take some time to adjust though since there are extra macro keys on the side. Hopefully it won’t be a problem :) I also got a Razer Goliathus gaming mouse pad. Now with these new gear along with my Razer Carcharias headset and Razer Abyssus gaming mouse – I am all set for masters league ;D
