Topic Blizzard u used to be
Can't be so hard to change from settings pinging?
Apart from the game itself requireing almost half a Gig more RAM than before the patch(i only used the absolute lowest settings, i reconfigured to low again after the patch changed it), then it still feature following bugs:
Huge FPS drops.
Larvae will now crawl higher up and actually BLOCK you from making a new hatch in the same spot.
League illusion. Some people are portrayed as a higher or lower league than they actually are. And no, i'm not talking about the "highest league achived" crap.
Games lost illusion. It will look like you have lost the record of your previous games(not lost as in losing the match to another player, but lost info of the game).
It also feature this very annoying thing:
WHY!! WHY did i lose my stats?! I can understand low league players not having it, even tho that is STUPID AS !@#$, but f*cking master players?
WHAT THE F*CK IS WRONG WITH YOU BLIZZARD???
Wait a minute Sir!
Citing business week article
Skoda's global presence has been propelled by an unrelenting focus on building better cars that can be sold at bargain-basement prices. The brand has been a leader in quality surveys across Europe in recent years, and ranked No. 2 in Britain (tied with Honda (HMC), and just a hair below Lexus)
Just for fun check Jeremy Clarkson Skoda Yeti test:
And by the way Skoda (Octavia model) ranks 59 in 2012 German TUV report which is above X3 (72), Z4 (76), BMW 5 (88) and X5 (112).
As a matter of fact I going to jump into my 20 years old Favorit and take a night ride because despite age it still runs.
Can you say the same about 1 year old Starcraft 2?
Sorry for off-topic and cheers from Czech Rep.
As much as I hate to admit it, I have to agree. Blizzard's touch with their clientele has withered substantially in the last few years. It started with ridiculous limitations of their products (B.net1 > Bnet 2) and went to customer support.
I am not buying a single product after HotS (and even that is in doubt).
Im not really sure why people are complaining about frame drops I have a weedy little 630m running in my laptop and I can run it on ultra most of the time if AA is off as for the UI its just gonna take some getting used to however the player info system is a total mess as its become a lot clunkier to navigate since you have to go though a bunch of tabs to find a few stats for different matchups
@ Ursman its likely just a bug in the update which blizz should fix soon because a 555m or a 6970m should be able to run SC2 on ultra without breaking a sweat

the BMW of the gaming industry but now your becoming the Skoda of the industry :-(
they still are the bmw of gaming. People just have waaay higher expectations
You are wrong man, the problem is that casual gamers and "console users" have no expectations, they just play every !@#$ that games developers give them.
I see a lot of people that just defends sc2 because is made by blizzard, but actually this product is not good enough. 2 years are gone and this new "awesome big patch" has not a feature asked by the community, we are still waiting for clan support, moderated and private chat channels, a better custom games system (the problem was not with the mods, but actually with standard game where i cannot find someone of my level to practise) and some other small things that we are waiting since the wol release. We are tired of see a game that could have been "one of the best games ever" that it's just a "good game if u like that kind of game" because the blizzard (at this point we can say it) has forgotten how to do its job.
Well yes, D3 made Blizzard shoot their own foot. This game is not just horrible, it's an offence to every HDD/SSD its saved on!
In matters of SCII well the new UI isnt as bad as I initially thougt, there could be a change here or there but still the old UI was way better.
The fog of war issue I dont get. Just came home after chilling 4 weeks in greece and had to try the fog everybody was qqing about. Well, the animation sertenly looks fancier, but surely will consume more power off your GPU and may drop your fps some.
Well for 1000£ you can set up a decent tower. Buying laptops isn't worth the money. And Alienware is like Apple: 60% of the price is the name. Also the FPS drop might be due to the alienwares heatthrottle. My brother is using a MX17 which is the biggest pile of crap ever and has nothing but issues for like 3000£ -.-
