Battlecruiser Defensive Matrix

May 20th, 2010 · No Comments · Uncategorized

I’ve played Terran a lot, but admittedly I don’t do Battlecruisers too much.

I will have to look for a Defensive Matrix shield upgrade next time […]

StarCraft TV – The fifth episode of GosuTV

May 10th, 2010 · No Comments · Uncategorized

The fifth episode of GosuTV League and Tournament Updates The best part is the little strategies blurbs where they show things like rushing with a tank, and dropping Thors behand enemy lines with medivac’s. http://www.own3d.tv/video/26337/GosuTV_-_Episode_5 It’s about 35 minutes, but much more engrossing than another Sarah Silverman show if you’re a StarCraft player

May 9th, 2010 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Netahera: The range has been increased from 5 to 6. This is not an actual change to the area effect of the weapon. The weapon was always range 6, but it would only acquire targets at range 5 so it would get a little bit of splash that would hit enemies behind its initial target. […]
