I can't help but think this would go faster if I dug out my SC2 DVD and installed from there, but that would require not being lazy.

I should have all this re-installed and updated tonight.

The DVD wouldn't help you at all for HOTS. It's an entirely separate client download, so you're doing it the only way possible already :P

Yeah, I just found this out when starting the beta client installer. Oh well, can't hurt to have WoL installed again, plus I got to swap my portrait to that awesome Witch Doctor Zerg.

Now downloading the beta client.

EDIT: Done. Ahrezmendi.997

I was very gently coerced into Wings of Liberty by Pikey.

While I don't post much anymore I still play WoL alot, in fact I am about to go in and play some now. SodaGremlin.520 hit me up! I am in plat this season but just barely hanging on there. I finished 1st this last season in gold! Woot! Best finish for me yet!

Also playing HotS thanks to a beta key from Thin_J... +1 internet friendship points

If you are no good at it like me, hit me up lol

I'm definitely no good at Heart of the Swarm. Don't know what that means in Wings of Liberty right now.

Don't let Thin_J fool you. He's VERY good.

Methinks you haven't played any HOTS yet.

I played Thin_J a bit after he hit me up with the beta key. His mechanics are a little rusty, but for the most part he's right. It's a different game! However, as he pointed out... Protoss death ball still works

Wooo more people!! Yess syess come play hots.

I can make void rays. apparently that means i win.

ps. I am sure Skytoss will be nerfed soon.

I haven't even been playing skytoss. As soon as I saw White-Ra play it I knew it was going to get nerfed...

ive made the switch back... I cant believe how balanced this game feels.

Yeah tbh, I almost never make oracles or tempests anymore (Phoenixes baby phoenixes!).

But the mothership core, I really like that thing. Planetary Fortress on queue is just soooo nice to have.

And zerg looove making hydras in HOTS for some reason, which I loooove... well most of the time, unless they do a funky timing attack, instead of making infestors to counter my phoenixes like a smart person should.

My name is Rebif.226. I am a SC2 addict. I need help. It is my drug. 3500+ games played...highest finish is top 20 platinum, but I am currently in gold.

I have had the beta for a long time now. Blizz sent me a message to redeem a key months ago and I play it once in a while, but I love laddering on WOL. I just wish there were other addicts I could play on a team with. Trying to play 2v2 or higher with pugs makes me want to weep.

I still only play WoL. Havent touched HoS beta for months. I'm down to play whenever anyone else is.

Dunno where else to put this, but TotalBiscuit plans to hosts a Luchadore-style invitational tournament, where all players play under aliases and masked.

Sounds kind of cool. Am sure the Protoss and Terran players are easy to guess at times..but still

Got a buddy hooked on SC2 tonight. We played about 10 2v2 games against the AI. I'm sure this will be good for my game as it is motivating me to play more.

I've also been playing with the HotS beta. Good times.

In preparation for HotS, I've been playing a fair amount of WoL. If anyone is up for some hard core, Bronze level, action, let me know. I could also use a lot of help/tips/tutoring from some of the better goojers to get out of Bronze league. I'm currently ranked 7th, so I'm almost there.

I'm always down to help out in some SC2. Add me on steam and Bnet and message me if you want to play.

My Terran is very definitely bronze league, if you want. I'm probably still high silver or low gold(ish) with Zerg though.

Although most of my Terran experimenting has been in the HOTS beta and not in WOL.

I can probably play tonight or tomorrow night if anyone wants to do some WoL. Still haven't touched HotS since last year. Watching pro games makes me want to play even less... Might just do the campaign for that one until they get it straightened out.

Cool. I'll definitely jump on tomorrow night.

Yeah, you'll still probably cream me because my mechanics, in general, are still very much Bronze quality. My micro is really bad. I have a particularly tough time with the casters like Infestors. I can never seem to get them into the right position...and, when I do, I miss the fungals anyway.

Hrm. It would seem I let WoL get pretty massively out of date since I started spending a lot of time in HOTS. It's got like 6GB to download before I can play

I doesn't look like I'll be able to get on tonight on account of stupid Valentine's day. Hopefully, I'll be putting in some quality time over the weekend.

The 6GB patch is just the most recent one, nothing much changed - mostly preparation for things to come (hots i believe).

I forgot I had completely uninstalled WoL just recently and my DVD has gone missing. The game client takes a long time to download...

The HotS / 2.0 patch I think is what they're allowing you to download in the background if you leave the client open. It's not required, but it sounds like the actual 2.0.4 patch is going to take a while to download and install which is why they're offering the pre-download right now. This isn't just for HotS support, but also adding a large number of new features to the multiplayer experience.

Interesting. I didn't know that these features were coming to WoL.

I added you on my smurf account, PWAlessi. Been on a lot tonight. Might be on over the weekend.

Cool, thanks. I think that's have your Donovan/388 account on my friends list but not your your smurf account. I'll be sure to accept the friend request when I log in.
