I was just wondering wether or not people we're going to buy the Standard Edition, the Digital Deluxe edition, or the Collectors Edition of HotS.

I pre-ordered the Collectors edition on Amazon, and am going to get it day of! Had to pay a bit extra shipping and handling though. :(

Collectors. Pre-ordered from EB.

Standard. Could care less about cosmetic changes, and the stuff in the CE always gets leaked. Blizzard doesn't need any more money from me either.

Standard. Blizzard no longer deserves more than that.

Collector's. I'm sort of a completionist, and I got the CE of WoL. Once LotV comes around, it'll be my first series that I've gotten all three CE's.

Plus, the boxes are cool.

Um, no?

I can't speak for either of you, but I can certainly sympathize with the notion. The only thing that interests me in the CE is the artbook. Won't deny that I wouldn't mind having the mousepad though.:)

I think you missed the "I kid" part in TheE's reply, Hawki.

Besides, the real translation is that I'm just a stingy bastard. :D

Collector's Edition here. I'll pre-order it on Amazon closer to March.

CE. I made the mistake of not buying it for WoL (though I still got the art book for my birthday this year). I will not miss out on the segment of the game I have been most looking forward to.

Plus the first art book was great. Plus the first soundtrack had hard-to-find bonus tracks if you bought the CE. Good enough incentive for me.

I will buy standard. I will probably buy it together with WoL, since I don't have it(playing on friend's account whole time). I would buy CE, but it really depends on the price, and I am not really that rich to pay ~100 Euro for the game(including WoL and HotS CE).

CE. Collector's edition.

I didn't decide yet, because the content of the collector's edition isn't as nice as the one from WoL, which I've missed. Maybe I'll go for the standard...

The content for the CE is fine, however, even Mr. Moneybanks still has to admit that 80$ for it is ridiculous.

I'm getting the Standard edition, and possibly get the art book when it's sold separately. The digital deluxe offers stuff for games I don't play and a special skin for a unit I don't often use, so not really worth the extra $20 for me. The Collectors I'd only want for the art book and doesn't really justify a $40+ cost just to have.

I'll get the collector's edition because I still have faith in Blizz and I still love Starcraft ^^

I didn't get collectors for WoL, so feels kind of strange to get it for HotS also. I'm also not enough interest in the extra bonus for the price.

Ehh, I'm thinking standard because it feels like they're including less this time, plus I'm not crazy about teh zergs. I'd only get the CE for the sake of ... well, completing the collection.

Stay on topic

I made my mind on buying the WoL collector's edition mainly because I had started a collection. I'd see someone with a similar viewpoint doing so as well. It's called "Collector's edition" for a reason :D

The deluxe edition, on the other hand, is a joke. Unlike other over-rated microtransactions, there's a physical reference of a better item. You can buy the collector's edition for 15 dollars more...

I preordered the Collector's Edition some time ago (EB takes preorders for the CE before it was even announced :P).

That said, I too am giving serious thought to cancelling my preorder and just going with the standard edition. I find myself very disappointed with a lot of the things going on in Heart of the Swarm. The competitive aspect just isn't so exciting to me anymore. We all know that a roughly 50% winrate for all races as an indicator of balance isn't that accurate because a large portion of those just come down to feast-or-famine strategies like all-in builds. Or as Zerg having X amount of Infestors by Y amount of time or not.

What's keeping me here is the first thing that got me into StarCraft way back in '98 in the first place: the story and the setting. I'm still very excited for HotS' singleplayer. And while the lack of previews leading up to the announcement of the game's release date is surprising, it's also appreciated in its own way, since I'll be in for plenty of nice surprises come March 12.

Translation: I have no money. I kid.

Spot on :D

I totally want a CE. But I have to work two days to make that money - I mean, if I bought it in the US. It is not going to be that cheap here. And I got to buy Tche Junior's rice and beans.

I could afford the Deluxe Edition but they really screwed it up. The portraits are silly... a purple Banshee, a purple Diablo and an angry Panda. I'm actually OK with Diablo and the Panda but they are not "infested".

The decals also could use a little more work... but the Kerrigan wings for Diablo, gosh, that must be good to play with :D If the DE was a little better I'd buy it.

The CE is also a little underwhelming... It is 40$ more expensive than the game, just like WoL's CE. But you don't have the book, nor the comics, and intead of a thematic pendrive with SCBW in it, you got a... mouse pad? Well, someone droped their standards. Would be a sucker and buy it if I had the money though.

EDIT: did I mention the Omegalisk skin is lame? It is lame.
