Starcraft 1 players I need your advice
« on: August 29, 2017, 09:06:37 AM »
How similar are Starcraft 1 and Warcraft 2? Micro- and macrowise?

I'm thinking of buying Starcraft 1 remastered. If the 2 games are similar, I'm going to buy Starcraft 1 and practice for Warcraft 2 in there.

Isn't SC1 a free download now?

I dled SC2 for free from Blizzard site. Played once, never again, it was awful.

They remastered sc1. Remastered version costs 15 dollars. The remastered version has better graphics (irrelevant), ladder system and an anti-hack system.

And yes, sc2 is very bad. Only thing that I like about sc2 is the ladder system - competition is at your level and you can spam a lot of games throughout the day.

sc1 is the most "war2like" rts out there really, since theres not caps on your expansion and army size. similar balance in terms of micro and macro too, pro tier players will micro the shit out of shuttle drops and probe scout harassment, but more basic players can probably overwhelm opponents with superior macro
