    No. I don't care much for that sort of thing.

    I would be interested to know how to record videos, though.

    i found a typo at one point where you wrote "different" instead of difference

    also:
    For all other spellcasters, it is. The SC1 Queen is our best example of this. Spawn Broodling is a spell that is worthy of research due to its power. It instantly kills one unit. It's 150 energy cost compared with the utility of this power is what makes it unworkable. Thinning out the number of Siege Tanks would be valuable, but 8 Mutalisks have more general utility than 4 Queens with Broodling. So as useful as it potentially is to kill even quite a few of a Terran's tank force or even just Medics for their M&M ball, it simply isn't worth the cost.
    we all get your point, but queens cost 100/100 in the latter patches of sc/bw ... so that would be 8 queens compared to 8 mutas. which would in theory be worthwhile vs tanks, if it wasnt for the extreme micro-intensity to cast.

    nice blog-post otehrwsie.. its been too long sicne the last update. keep it up!

    peace.

    There is another.
    Very good advice - I do feel people are far too caught up with the whole 'rank' thing. I fully agree. Not just for the sake of the player's own improvement in the long run - (as you point out) but I feel that its also keeping the testers from taking chances with the game itself; I feel a lot of beta players (present company excepted, of course) are relying on the "tried-and-true" builds to maintain winning streaks as opposed to what they really should be doing, and thats ensuring SC is as balanced a possible - to do that, one needs to be more concerned about breaking the new game than they should about making sure that the old game still works...While I'm not expecting any 255 worker rushes, there are many units, spells and combos I've been expecting to see more of, that have barely seen use.

    What Blizz should really do is make a promise to blank out the rankings before the day of release. - Knowing that the slate will eventually be cleaned, players will be less focused on those rankings, and hopefully concentrate on more creative builds and strats.
