Cannot wait for the finished product coming later this year. It's going to change the game completely though, meh. Going to have to experiment tons again.

Been watching some of the HotS streams on twitch.tv and I gotta say pretty much everything being added atm is super overpowered xP
I think it was the same way in WoL beta - most of the units were overpowered and then Blizzard nerfed them as beta went on.

Now we are cosmic friends forever, ok?

Balancing a RTS with different factions is probably as hard is it gets. Generally, Blizzard does a good job. Games below GM and high masters are pretty balanced. It's only in those top tiers where the tiniest things matter.

Season 4 of 2012 has finally started. Man, the past season was a month longer than season 2. Somehow, I still played fewer games this past season than I did during my first season..

Hope placements go well!

Got placed back into 1v1 Diamond again even though I lost my placement. Pretty happy about it, since my friend who was in Diamond last season got demoted to plat even after winning his placement xP

What's insane about this forum thread is that 95% of the posts in it are from two people, so what we're essentially reading here is an extended conversation between two guys lasting over three months with the occasional nosy douche poking in and offering their unwanted two cents.

Finally got to Diamond today. It's been a long journey since Silver two seasons back. Maybe I'll make it to Masters next season xP. Stoked.
