How to get better at StarCraft II without playing


Since StarCraft II’s multiplayer beta started, HDStarCraft has been posting amazing replay videos on YouTube in 1080p. You’ll sometimes hear the humble fan say that he’s not very good at the game and that his commentary skills need work. We’re going to have to disagree. HDStarCraft is an excellent player and his commentaries are brilliant.

He has many pearls of wisdom to share in each of his videos, which are full of helpful tips, strategies, and useful explanations on how the sequel has changed since the original StarCraft. Most importantly, his commentaries manage to make each match he posts truly exciting to watch. For StarCraft junkies, they’re almost as much fun to watch as playing the actual game. Seriously, check out his videos by visiting his YouTube channel or website. If you like what you see, you can support his ongoing project by sending him a donation.

    @TheHolyHandGrenade Thanks! I consulted the Book of Armaments, counted to three, and made the change.

    funny how on most sc2 articles i keep poiting to my HoN experiences, this one is not an exception. Watching replays to say: "oh, so that's how you rape properly" helps out a lot... but when you have a brit spelling things out for ya... it's far more entertaining.
