StarCraft II continues the epic saga of the Protoss, Terran, and Zerg. These three distinct and powerful races will clash once again in the fast-paced real-time strategy sequel to the legendary original, StarCraft. Legions of veteran, upgraded, and brand-new unit types will do battle across the galaxy, as each faction struggles for survival. Featuring a unique single-player campaign that picks up where StarCraft: Brood War left off, StarCraft II will present a cast of new heroes and familiar faces in an edgy sci-fi story filled with adventure and intrigue. In addition, Blizzard will again offer unparalleled online play through Battle.net, the company's world-renowned gaming service, with several enhancements and new features to make StarCraft II the ultimate competitive real-time strategy game.

About Hive Keeper with 0 comments by Bibendus on Jun 4th, 2014

This patch contains improvements for performance, AI and possession.

Possession now allows the player to directly attack and use abilities while controlling a creature. Use left mouse click to use the basic attack, 1 or 2 for special abilities (when present) and right click to dig with drones.

NOTE: due to re-publishing limitations of the Rock the Cabinet contest, the map released on NA servers has the "attack while using possession" feature disabled. Until the contest is over, a second version of the map has been published with a different name.


To encourage map exploration I added one of the first upcoming changes: boosts.
Boosts are small items, scattered around the map, that can be activated for special bonuses. At these moments there are in game and more will be added in the future:
- Increase level of all your creatures by 1
- Heal all your creatures
- Temporarily increase efficiency for all your creatures
- Temporarily increase happinessfor all your creatures
- Spawn 4 additional drones
- Increase vespene gas
- Increase minerals
- Bonus global research (500 to each research tree)
- Bonus for a single research tree (1000)

Boosts Boosts

Last but not least, voice alerts made by Yushatak were added in game!

Full Changelog:

BALANCE
o First waves starting time slightly increased in normal and easy maps

CHANGES
o Optimized how dig selection works, that should improve performance in multiplayer game
o Drones dig and conquer AI greatly improved
o Drones now run away in fear when encountering enemies
o Creatures won't die anymore from hunger, however happiness of extremely hungry or tired creatures will decrease faster 
o Modified creatures drop stun duration depending on creature type, agile creatures will be stunned for less time compared to clumsy ones
o Added boost items in all maps 
o Improved alert system with new icons and voice messages
o Possession greatly improved and attacks during possession are now enabled (use left mouse for basic attack, right mouse for digging with drones and 1-2 for special abilities)

BUG FIX
o Fixed a bug that could cause a stop in the tutorial after building a level 2 spore cannon
o Drones won't attack anymore while carrying an unconscious creature
o Fixed defeat screen UI

this game suxs for custom maps now, if you didn't get your map up there when the game first come out, no one will play it cos of the popularity thing, that was a bad idea and its death to custom maps, unless they fix it soon,

bnet 2.0 is not as good as they said it would be, i mean wtf you can't pick your servers any more, like if you are in SEA u can't join a usa server, i know they said they will fix this in 60days but way but that in no bnet game had that before.

and they said you can make FPS in galaxy editor and you can but they lag like **** on bnet 2.0 so whats the point

thats my random

Fine gent, I can tell by reading this message of yours that your ***** size is indeed that of a baby monkey. I therefore hope you have a terrible life and die a slow, painful death, preferably at a young age.

Excellent game with immense modding future. The single player is great and original(although the story is not.) The Multiplayer is also great as the game has achievements, a massive esports community, and great custom game features.
