Just died to a baneling bust. I opened with a wall off of 2 supply depots and a barracks, threw down a reactor, factory, and a second barracks. I was planning on going cloak banshees pretty early and scouting with a reaper. I saw a super early baneling nest in his main with the reaper and he didn't have a natural yet. I knew I didn't have enough marines at home to deal with it and my second barracks and factory weren't finished yet. No back up marines and no widow mines to help the few marines I had.
I tried to find his little stash of banelings to snipe with my reaper but they were already a second or two away from my base. Probably the fastest loss I've had so far.

I haven't picked up HOTS yet, I played the single player campaign a while ago and enjoyed it. Haven't played online much, got completely schooled the first couple times. I think I'm just too slow and like the long game haha.

Yeah I'm pretty sure that would work. I think only thing would be you wouldn't unlock any portraits etc.
My computer has been broken for a month or so, so no playing for me either

I would be into it if my damn house could get internet!
Do you guys know if I can install HOTS with an internet connection and then just play single player offline?

I've finally gotten back into it after a half year or so off. (Once HOTS came out I kinda remembered the game!)
Also finally started doing 1v1's a little bit, i'm currently Gold but I just beat a Masters who tried to cannon rush me, he actually got a cannon up and killed half my probes before I beat it off, and then proceeded to go mass voids. :/
Makes me sad that he's a Master.

The campaign is easier than WoL but the missions are fun (27 of them, no mini-campaign, no secret missions). Unique upgrades for units can be chosen every level, so you can adapt, one of the flaws from WoL campaign was that you couldn't switch upgrades after buying them. If you liked WoL's story, you'll probably still like this, but they clearly took the story in a whole different direction from Brood War. I believe Chris Metzen is the only writer who has worked on both the original and sequel. It shows.
For $40, it's worth it from a gameplay perspective. The new units change up multiplayer and the campaign has replay value. They pretty much added a type of "new game plus" where you get the best possible units and Kerrigan abilities for whatever missions you choose.
Void Rays and Widow Mines are OP at the moment. Zerg still dominating high levels though.
I do like some of the new multiplayer units though, I'm getting frustrated with running/flying over a bunch of the new mines and losing half my army instantly for no cost, but it's cool, just gotta learn to keep obs/raven etc closer.
So, basically, Terran is still the OP race? Or at least the race that gets the most versatile and mighty units.
