Kung wala kang alam sa Starcraft, malamang hindi mo maiintindihan ito.
Nananaginip ako kanina, medyo intense. Isang Protoss Stalker daw ako at may kalaban akong apat na Terran Marines. Binibigyan ko daw sila ng dance moves para matira ng laser beam habang sila ay hirap na hirap tumakbo papalapit sa akin.
At take note, apat sila.
Kaya naman nang maalimpungatang ako, ni-research ko ang stats ng Stalker at kinumpara ko sa isang Marine.
Ang Stalker ay may; attack range na 6, move speed na 2.953 at vision na 10.
Ang Marine naman; attack range na 5, move speed na 2.25 at vision na 9.
Lumalabas na kahit apat na Marines pa ang makatapat ng isang Stalker na kagaya ko, sasayawan ko lang talaga sila dahil mas lamang ako sa kanila sa kahit na anong aspeto, unless na ma-catch nila ako by surprise o magkamali ako ng stutter steps.
Which reminds me, ganun ang nangyari sa akin last year.
Kung avid fan ka ng blog ko, malamang alam mo na sumalo ako ng bala galing sa isang holdaper last year. Sinayawan ko siya, kaya yung unang bala ay naiwasan ko. Hindi ko lang alam talaga kung paanong hindi ko naiwasan yung pangalawa.
Actually, apat din yung holdaper last year pero isa lang ang may tapang na barilin ako. Pag naka-engkwentro ako ng holdaper at any point moving forward, itutumba ko silang lahat kahit ilan pa sila.
Kaya nga this time, nakikipag-barilan ulit ako… sa loob ng Starcraft 2 world. Parati akong Protoss dahil yun ang pina-practice ko na race. Sa totoo lang, medyo nahihirapan pa rin ako umangat sa ladder. Nasa Silver league ako ngayon.
Paki-add na lang ako sa Starcraft 2 kung ikaw ay nasa South East Asia server. Ang IGN ko at PROMKING.
Online na naman kami kagabi ng mga tropa ko. StarCraft 2 ang aming libangan at stress reliever matapos ang araw ng trabaho. Dito kami nakakapagkwentuhan ng kaunti, nakakapagkumustahan at nakakapagplano ng kung ano ang gagawin namin sa mga buhay namin.
Ito ang naging decision ng aming conclave noong huling KnP Meeting. Gamit ang medium na StarCraft2, panandalian kaming nakakawala sa aming mga problema sa buhay at nakakapaglibang. Hindi ito kasing gastos ng ibang hobby dahil 1-time payment lang na 3.5k pesos ang pagkuha ng Battle.Net Key.Araw-araw pa kaming makakapaglaro sa kanya-kanyang bahay.
Mga isa hanggang dalawang oras din kada gabi ang ginugugol namin dito.
Galing ang team namin sa Silver league at unti-unting umaangat sa division rankings. Kagabi lang, nakatalo kami ng rank diamond na players. Nabigyan kami ng bagong ranking na GOLD Rank 1 sa Division Khala Upsilon.
Ito ang pinagkakaabalahan ko ngayon. Nagbukas pa nga ako ng all english blog para sa aking experiences sa loob ng StarCraft2 World. Titignan natin kung maganda ito sa search engines.
Let’s roll out!
My friend Clifford intoduced me back to the game of StarCraft. 2 weeks after the release, he has already installed StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty to his home computer. It is the latest game from Blizzard Entertainment, and considered a game which was a decade in the making. The last time I played StarCraft was when I was still in High School; about 10 years ago.
He would not let me play his account at first. Well, becuase he is still under placement matches and could not afford to lose. Good thing the StarCraft kit would come with 2 Guest Accounts that you can activate using your Battle.net logins. A guest account would allow you to play the game for 7 hours or within 14 days – whichever comes first.
Unlike other Downloadable Games; Starcraft 2 can not be played offline. You need to login to your Battle.net account before entering the SC2 panel. Campaigns, Custom Games, Quick Matches and Challenges can only be launched if you are inside the SC2 panel. Blizzard has made it impossible to play without purchasing an account with them.
Good thing I already have a Battle.net account. I remember creating it when I tried out World of Warcraft. Sitting in front of Clifford’s PC, I visited Battle.net. I added a game and thoroughly entered the guest account Game Key. The system automatically added a new game to my list, which then allowed me to enter the SC2 panel.
I only have 7 hours of game time.
I did not waste my limited game time on playing stupid campaigns and challenges. I quickly added buddies with the help of the SC2 panel’s facebook buddy lookup and got a list of about 6 buddies. Shuren, was online and we were able to play the game.
Shuren then invited me to his party and tried to lookup for a match. I chose Protoss as my race because i know for a fact that I am good at this race. I want to see Zealots, Dragoons, Carriers and Interceptors again.
The game started.
Although I felt High School all over again, I still see myself as a stranger to this whole new world of StarCraft 2. The Nexus has a strange ability which needs about 25 energy to boost the training speed of buildings. As the game goes, I could hear Clifford at the back of my seat coaching me what I would do next.
The game ended quickly with my teammate Shuren doing all the job. All I ever built was 4 Pylons, 1 Gateway, a dozen of Zealots and 3 dozens of Probes. My first game would be a pea as compared to Shuren’s. I felt useless.
This has to stop. I need to practice and play more.
SC2XP would be about my StarCraft 2 Gaming Experience. Here I will discus what I think about the game. I hope I can help all SC2 players with my stories of success and failures.
