Thank you for the new season though is hard to understand how each season is now a year lasting when last seasons where 4 or 5 months long. Is this going to be the new standard?,

Time to Veto FS.

Please BLIZZARD we need transparence about this promised topics and some other i believe are important:

  1. Where is Team Match Making? (It was promised over OFFICIAL Blizzard Starcraft channel by Grant Davis). We are still waiting for it and its almost 3 years with no response. Also Pete Stillwel mentioned Team Match making to be a thing to come prior to the Remastered release of SCRM. We are still waiting.

  2. Please fix and improve RANK, do something about smurf account. Make the Losing/Win MMR points to be based on logic, is not fair that people with higher MMR create a new account and they are taking points of lower Rank players as if they would have no central higher rank account,

  3. Please implement BWAPI and other AI frameworks, this was also promised by Grant Davis.

  4. Expand the universe of players by allowing the people with the free version to join both the 1v1 and upcoming Team Match Making official ladder. they wont get official points but let them play aka “quick game button”. The player pool is too small, it would be a smart idea to allow player that own the free version to join said games.

  5. Please provide new skins, portraits an other purchasable items, we want things to purchase for the game.

Please don’t let Classic SC die… this is one of the oldest Intellectual Properties of BLIZZARD, a beloved game that deserves praise and respect. Please we want new things and at least the things that where promised before by official Blizzard staff members.

@Cydra just tell your bosses in Activision Corporate that you want to make Ladder into a paid annual service. The prospect of shi-shing $$$ should at least get you a few minutes of their time as that is all Activision cares about.

Thank you for the support of the game!!! I hope Activision-Blizzard doesn’t shut down Starcraft completely. :pensive:

I think that there may be people with weak graphics cards even in 2021. So therefore it is good that they can play games from the late 1990’s still, to be more manly in an evil world.

So happy that this game is still receiving support! It’s my favorite game and I hope to play it for many more years to come.

Exactly, community on 1.16 was better than this because now it still divided between them. Let SCR be mod friendly as old version.
Its complicated find a equlity in Ranked, each account should have only one profile per server. Also taking in account other aspects of performance, APM is a good start. number of units per time frame, resources spent… than just MMR based on win lose. Tha would give a better profile of player level. and If so smurfing wont be so encouraging.

Como consigo fazer o download desses mapas ?

Hi! How can I report this bug: the SCV doesn’t do anything if I set a rally point at the command center. It just stands near a mineral.

Haha, that’s not a bug, it’s a feature! It’s been like this since 1998, and probably the way it should stay imo. All the professional players are used to the game behaving like this.

This isn’t a bug in the game. Remember that starcraft came out in 1998 it was an early rts with rally points along side westwoods red alert 2 and Microsofts Age of Empires 2

So the original team either hadn’t thought to add this as a quality of life feature or didn’t have time to during development. So it is it was never added and the remaster won’t add any features that will affect the classic gameplay. it is something that will take a little getting used to at first but I find it helps to rally the workers to a nearby spot (especially when the mineral line is below your main structure) so you can quickly spot idle ones you have not sent to work yet.

you meat heads broke this game, fix it

If you had to install additional tools, map editor hacks and etc. It wasn’t “mod friendly” mod friendly is something like WC3/SC2 map editor or Steam Workshop.

Did Blizzard make the computers harder in the recent patch?
