This subforum is severely underused, but I just realize... I might as well post here. Is anyone interested in SC2? Two years ago at Blizzcon I watched the D3 stuff with my virtual ticket, but was (as everyone else) super disappointed, but then stumbled across the SC2 tournament... and got back into the game that I had been playing on and off for the past 18 years. Since then I've been following it closely, a lot more than Diablo even this year. Since SC2 went free 2 play in November, the player base has exploded and is at its peak; the game has so many different modes (campaign, ladder, co-op, arcade), and the e-sports scene is arguably the best in the world. And I'm still shocked by what happened last weekend (for those who don't know: StarCraft has always been insanely big in Korea and is almost a "national sport" over there, thus Korea has always dominated the scene - but since Sunday for the first time in history there is a valid argument to make that the best player might actually not be from Korea right now).
Anyways, just curious if anyone is playing and/or following SC2 - any streamers you like, any players you follow, any tournaments you've recently watched, and if you play yourself do you prefer ranked, unranked, achievement hunting in campaign, or co-op? I'm working on 100% campaign achievement (mid-HotS right now) but also absolutely love co-op (Stukov and Abathur are my go-to commanders, especially the latter I want to practice a lot). I'd love to break into ladder but anxiety hits to hard, it might just not be for me, at least not 1v1. What about you?
