StarCraft Heroes – Egon Stettman
When Egon Stetmann began his career at the Terran League research facility on Tyrador III, he found himself surrounded by like-minded, equally young and idealistic colleagues, most of whom shared his belief that their generation could hope for a brighter future for the Whole Koprulu sector worked.
Planets StarCraft – Kaldir
A moon of the gas giant Midr IV, Kaldir is among the coldest terrestrial locations in the Koprulu Sector. Its upper atmosphere rejects heat and allows almost no sunlight to reach the surface. For this reason, only two native life forms have been discovered on Kaldir to date. One of these, a species of extremophile bacteria, serves as the power source for the others: a group of brutal Ursadons.
StarCraft Units – Point Defense Drone
The Point Defense Drone was a light-air Terran unit removed in the 4.0.0 patch, it is deployed by a Raven at the cost of 100 energy. The Drone is immobile and cannot attack, but will negate specific enemy projectiles near itself, protecting allied units. The Drone spawns with 200 energy, which allows for up to 20 attacks to be negated.
StarCraft Missions – When Two Quarrel
Description: The Moebius boys think there is another artifact on a planet called Monlyth. It is said to be guarded by Protoss – fanatics who call themselves Tal’darim. Now don’t get sentimental because you think they’re your old Protoss buddies, because they’re not.
StarCraft Buildings – Stargate
The Stargate is a unit producing structure for the Protoss, responsible for producing most of the Protoss air units. It requires a Cybernetics Core before it can be warped in. The Stargate produces the Phoenix, Oracle and the Void Ray, and after the Fleet Beacon is completed, the Stargate can also warp in the Carrier and the Tempest.

blizzards only decent current game.
edit: overwatch is pretty dank too
Why even bother since the game is riddled with map hackers that pay $30.00 per month to stay UN detected. Don't believe me you tube it and google it.
Still one of the best RTS
StarCraft 2 Foreverrr
Starcraft 2, best game ever!!!!
buy this game, buy the campaigns, buy the co-op heroes, hours of immersive fun!!!!!
This guy sounds like he should be narrating upcoming programming blocks on Nickelodeon or advertising super soakers or something.
Only game in blizzard inventory that is worth spending you time, word
Anyone wants to play casual co-op? havent done that, looks fun.
BEST GAME OF ALL TIME!
Need it on the Switch.
Problem is – no ultrawide support.
Fun fact: one girl just sitting in bikini on twitch has more viewers than all sc2 streamers combined.
blizzard being funny acting like they are gonna give stuff away, for people who already bought the game.
SC2 has way to many units and abilities. For new players, its overwhelming and not usually worth the time investment to "get good."
"no 2 games will ever be the same"
*gets zergling rushed 3 games in a row
I like how they used SC1 music in the video. HAH!
And oh wow this was 3 years ago never heard it happen.
It's an intra galactic campaign, really.
I buy but I lost access to my account and I can't go ranked and now it's preventing to login and have to paid ranked match rm 4
Blizzard Games are the only i buy, Worth it totaly.
YAAAAAHh realy nice for those who paid for every expansion ans stuff
Thank you so much
"There is no better time for new players to pick up the game!"
You mean, right when Blizz decided to stop making new content for it?
The game is dead.
I have all 3 and still play them.
this didnt age well
campagin was an insult to sc1
Congratulations for your game, now its time to stop with this and make somethimg better than entretainment of your company, imagine all this intelligence for strategy for managing real life resourses, help people in real life.
And they talk nothing about Arcade which in reality is the true lifeblood of SC2 just like it was for UMS in SC:BW
I have no idea why this video is showing up in the launcher, but today Rhykker reported that "new" content is no longer being produced, so bye bye to Co-Op commander / warchests and new content, balance patches from now on i guess. R.I.P StarCraft 2 content
WHy is this on the launcher again?
Are there a "new chapter tho", feels like StarCraft have been in matinance mode for years, 1-2 co-op commander(s) a year, 1-2 WarChests a year and a few balance patches, havent been any new story since the first Nove dlc pack after Legacy of the Void, so would be intresting if there is gonna be a "new" chapter because StarCraft II deserves some extra love >w<
Hm why does this video show up on the BattleNet launcher like 3 years later?
ah yes the most important part of playing protoss : building pylons
Chris Sigaty is a complete racist, prejudice and discriminant hacker who hacks and discriminant's on disabled persons. He is very good at racism, prejudice, discrimination, and 100% absolute hacking. Activision Blizzard HOTS is 100% a rigged fixed hoaxed hacked esport gimmick scam as posted on the Blizzard forums 2015. Blizzard HOTS has always been a game where the parameters/servers can be altered for third party rank boosters. These third part rank boosters claim they can place my account to diamond one for just under $1000.00 dollars. Yea sure ok, Blizzard HOTS is 100% a rigged fixed hoaxed hacked esport gimmick and always was. Now Blizzard no longer titles the game as a esport for reasons listed above due to no pro esport games being played. We are not the pro leagues therefore we do not fall under the title esport. Activision Blizzard is operated by racist, prejudice and discriminating hackers. Their customer service are called game masters and they are the absolute worst customer service I have experienced my entire life. If your account is hacked by their racist prejudice and discriminating operation of hackers then its designed for failure and no success. That is my true experience with their hacking operation of racist, prejudice and discriminating low life hackers. That's my honest experience with Activision Blizzard!!!!
