comment What do I do when an opponent builds a refinery in my base?
+1 for mentioning the fast stalker against terran, which is pretty much required anywhere above mid-level play.

To add to my comment because it can't be edited, the reason behind getting (and possibly chrono-boosting) your first stalker ASAP is because 1 stalker can defend against several reapers. If you have only zealots you won't be able to prevent the economy hit you'll take from even only 1 or 2 reapers harassing your probes as the reapers will simply kite you.

Although the general idea of this post is correct, building only zealots against a terran player is suicidal. Not only will you be kited mercilessly by marines and marauders, but you probably won't even be able to get into his base at all because it will be blocked off. I upvoted Doug's answer down below because it's generally considered essential to get your first stalker as fast as possible which means building an Assimilator at around 14 supply right after your gateway. From what it sounds like, you should have been able to do this before your enemy stole your 2nd gas.

comment What is the difference between the digital download and the boxed version of Starcraft II?
It's actually a "Feat of Strength" which is worth no achievement points. Blizzard has done this kind of stuff tons of times before, like in WoW you can retain feats of strength for completing raids, quests, or obtaining items that are no longer available.

I bought the boxed collector's edition and I didn't get Starcraft 1 with it.

comment What's the best counter strategy against battlecruisers?
@Oak I'm aware about the cost difference, but my phoenixes could only do 2 bars of damage to one battlecruiser before dying (about 10% of it's total health). There's some crazy damage reduction of light air vs. battlecruisers going on. Either that or there's some game mechanic that I'm unaware of.

Interesting, I would never use a control group past 6. It actually hurts to press Ctrl + 0 with the left hand.

comment How do I build and fight simultaneously?
I guess it depends which race you play. For zerg, you are definitely correct, but an unprepared protoss army may be as good as dead if your force fields/guardian shields are not up or your templars get sniped before you can psi storm. Or if your siege tanks aren't set up yet. Upvoted your post. The only 'base' thing that cannot be entirely remote controlled is the actual placement of buildings and possibly telling certain workers to go on gas, everything else can be done through hotkeys in the heat of battle.

comment What's the best counter strategy against battlecruisers?
I have to vote this down for the first sentence. Battlecruisers have very heavy armor so phoenixes do virtually no damage to them. I had a squadron of about 10 phoenixes vs. 4 or 5 battlecruisers and I couldn't even kill one battlecruiser with focus fire. I'm not sure about vikings or corruptors however as I don't play terran or zerg much. You're going to need void rays.

I have to disagree with the first one. Your base should be managed mainly by hotkeys but you have to keep the focus on your army. If you make one little mistake with unit positioning, or your enemy gets the jump on you, the game could be over for you assuming your economies are roughly equal.

Does the upgrade just make the shield take less damage? Does it affect shield regeneration at all?

So does armor give any additional damage reduction while the shields are still up?

To add to this, you get more experience the higher the game difficulty level.

comment Starcraft 2 AI Mods
The Galaxy editor really doesn't have the AI Editor? That was one of the standard features with the Warcraft III map editor 6 years ago. I'm very disappointed and surprised if so.

comment WoW Healadin lvl 60-70: Gear, spec, glyphs and suggestions?
You should be using Glyph of Seal of Wisdom as it reduces the mana cost of your spells by 5%, and Glyph of Flash of Light to increase your critical chance (which also yields higher heal-per-second and more mana back). In my experience, the glyph of Seal of Wisdom gives far more mana efficiency than not having to refresh Beacon of Light for an extra 30 seconds.
