    They really should have remastered the terran music like this guy did instead of using the Heroes of the Storm tracks...

    While I like the orignal better than the remaster soundtrack for Terran, there's still hope, that its actually something we havent heard yet, since its the same as for Heroes of the Storm, but we'll see. It has good part, and bad parts.

    I listened to the soundtrack last night, and the nostalgia hit hard. I still remember getting the box (I think it had a Protoss zealot on the front) as a kid and playing the missions/battlenet for hours. It is so hard to find the same level of enjoyment from anything nowadays (or perhaps I just have not looked hard enough).

    Even if the remaster falls short, it is a good reason to look back on simpler days of playing RTS games all day as a kid.

    The unit portraits look incongruous (most of them look TOO good for the game while still being at low FPS which feels weird) and the unit wireframes didn't really need to be changed. Protoss UI looks a bit too bright and harsh on the eyes. Gameplay looks good. I'll have to get used to how the Dragoon looks, but the Dragoon was such a weird unit to begin with that I don't think its their fault. I have to say I really like the look of the bases.

    Also HOLY SHIT MASSIVE NERF TO ZERG WITH HOW EASY IT IS TO SEE THINGS UNDER DARK SWARM NOW WTF BLIZZARD STOP FAVORING FUCKING TERRAN AND PROTOSS.

    terran portraits look wrong
    aside from that it's as good as one can hope for
    the 'hovering over ground' look isn't as apparent in motion
    still not buying this shit though

    Doesn't look too bad! Where's the catch (come on, there's always one with those HD remasters)?

    Release date when?

    Looks good, widescreen + matchmaking might make it a fun game for less competitive players like me as well.

    The catch is that beyond the graphics and ability to change key bindings everything stays the same. Bad pathfinding, limited unit selection, not being able to select more than one building and the rest. For some that is how it should be, for others it is not. The market will tell the real truth.

    Here's the catch
    Show Spoiler
    [​IMG]

    They add special looking skins for each race if you preorder the game. That means some in-game cosmetic shop could be a thing let's hope it will not happen tho.
    Oh and btw matchmaking will be not avaliable in free version of the game.
    Oh the realse date is august 14.

    This was never mentioned before.. link to proof please.

    EDIT: OK it seems on blizzard webpages on one place it says classic SC:BW will get matchmaking and on another place that it will not.
    I will wait for this to clear up until I tell Blizzard they are greedy fuckers that said you will not need SC:R to get matchmaking.
