comment Why do Terran players use the Marine blob micro move?
Alternately, instead of pressing attack move you can simply press "stop" and the units will attack the closest enemies. Not only does this eliminate the extra finger action, it also reduces the likelihood you'll accidentally A+click on one of your own units and kill it with friendly fire, which happens to beginners more often than you'd expect.

comment Does a 64-bit OS improve the performance of World of Warcraft?
I'm not so well versed in computer hardware, but is it possible that the bottleneck could also be the hard drive? WoW has a huge amount of data it needs to load, and despite having an extremely powerful computer it usually takes me 2 or 3 minutes of loading screen to actually get into the game. After the first load, it's very quick however. Would it be worth getting an SSD just to install WoW on?

comment How do I properly spec as a Balance druid?
Just to add although that the Balance Druid "rotation" (it's actually more like a priority list) is quite simple and easy to be good at, the Balance spec is actually one of the hardest to reach absolutely tip-top, World of Logs-busting performance, especially since some of the mechanics are subtle and not obvious and you need to know the raid encounters ahead of time to time your eclipses and cooldowns, or if a lot of mobility or AoE is required and you must remain in Solar eclipse.

comment Warcraft series: Where to start?
Agreed that Warcraft III is still an excellent place to start. It gives you a great amount of the storyline and fills you in on a few details you might have missed from the earlier Warcraft games. Plus, Warcraft III is much more accessible as it can actually be installed and run on a modern computer without compatibility issues.

comment Why did Stones of Jordan (“SoJ's”) become the “currency” at one point in Diablo 2?
Very interesting. I was wondering what that "x stones of jordan sold to merchants" message was that kept popping up!

comment What prevents users from cheating from outside a game?
In Starcraft II you can whisper the players who are playing even if you are an observer. Requires no outside IM service. Although there's nothing stopping the player from being on Skype or on the phone with an observer. I really don't see why anyone would go to such lengths to cheat at unranked games anyway.

comment Will my upgrades be available when I replay missions?
Yes, the easiest way to get all the armory and mercenary achievements are to play through quickly on casual and don't spend any of your credits until you're ready to farm the achievements.

comment What does the StarCraft 2 client download when entering the league queue?
There's no way that it's downloading maps each time because I've already played games on every single map. That really seems like speculation.

comment How do I earn SC2's “Hurry up, it's raid night” achievement?
Does it take into account best times of any difficulty (above normal)?

comment Rare/Epic Gear World of Warcraft
You'd have to be level 80 for anyone to take you to a Sartharion or Naxxramas raid. Not sure if you can even enter the instances below that. Tier 9 gear and heroics also require level 80.

comment What's the correct number of workers to put on gathering vespene and minerals in StarCraft 2?
I've heard that 4 workers are required for full saturation of a far diagonal vespene geyser. Is this true? Whenever I've tried it, it always seems like one of them is just sitting outside the assimilator.

comment Getting Better — Playing other races
@Brian Genisio Just a word of personal advice, if you want to learn all the races, DO NOT 'practice' going random in 3v3 or 4v4. I've learned so many horrible habits because I thought I could get away with 'learning' while my allies cover for me.
