Thanks grant :D Starcraft's og campaigns are really easy deathless btw haha. Didn't realize how inefficient I was being by just letting my poor men die though

    I've done it, I'm really good, but I could only do it with Terran bc I M so immersed in the game that I pretend it's a real person. It teaches you alternate strategies also, immense patience, and really stays with you when you look back on the game experience. Makes you feel like you're there hanging out with your troops and Raynor. And yes, on Brutal.

    I've watched this around a half-dozen times and there's something that's always bothered me. I finally bothered to check it as well. Auto-turrets from Ravens are tagged as structures AND do not count towards the Units Lost statistic. I just verified both. I'm curious if there would have been any change in strategy with autoturrets allowed. They last 3 minutes and are just energy, so a mass Raven comp may have been of use some places. Seeker missiles also dealt 100 damage back in WoL... and that ignores how silly 3 minute PDDs were, though as structures, they do not benefit from the energy research. It might just still be better to get science vessels as medics for mechanical units. I really am curious how GGG would have handled this challenge with ravens fully allowed. By that same token, I also wonder how this would be changed if structures had to be protected. We can't forget the man in the turret you can see when zoomed in! (PDDs are Light/Mechanical/Structure/Summoned, Auto-Turrets are Armored/Mechanical/Structure/Summoned for their tags.)

    Damn GiantGrant that's pretty friggin' epic. Been a StarCraft player for years. Waaaaay back in 1998 when SC1 first came out (when we were actually still young lol) my friends, cousins, and I played ever living hell out of both Starcraft and C&C. I've played SC1 and 2 for years and... I can't even imagine the difficulty of that. After this video it's obvious to me that, no matter how good you are at particular video game (or how good you THINK you are), there has to be someone out there who is better at it than you, even if you have more than 3000+ hours in a game. I've beaten Wings Of Liberty on Brutal, gotten all the bonus mission objectives, beaten every challenge in the campaign except the two goofy ones based of off the arcade game in the Hyperion's lounge that's kinda a weird hybrid between Space Invaders, Major Stryker, and Galactica (to be fair though that game isn't really part of the actual campaign, more of a mini-game). We've played SOOO many games of SC over the years, yet I could not imagine trying to beat ALL of SC1 or 2 without taking a single casualty. Hats off to you friend, true skill, hot damn, I would probably just... get frustrated when I took one little casualty on one of the later missions and chuck my nice Corsair K55 across the room and smash it into a million pieces out of frustration. How much iteration did it take to figure out HOW to beat each mission without suffering a single casualty?

      Zaxton Hong

      Planetary fortresses are really bulky, and scvs can repair from behind them pretty safely. Perdition turrets (especially on all in) have a nasty habit of making repairing scvs run in front and die

    Wait, Raven's autoturret is a structure and thus its death does not count, right? (Also, Nuke is a unit too)

      ​@Zaxton Hong, nuke is a spell indeed, but a nuclear missile itself is a unit - it is even displayed on the units tab while observing.

    2. Zaxton Hong
      Zaxton Hong
      2 hónapja

      Auto turret has the structure tag, so I could see this argument. Nuke is not a unit. It's a spell. There's a "units lost" counter which does not go up when he uses nukes. Therefore, using nukes does not count as losing a unit.

    You can rly easily beat Kerrigan using mass Battlecruisers. 6 or so Yamato cannon shots should put her out before she can mess you up. As long as you stay out of range and let the planetaries tank for you, ur honestly golden

    May I just say that When I've played SC2 (WoL only) I was shitting my pants every time I had to deal with Kerrigan, she's the boss of the campaign and I had no intention of dealing with her. Warning: rant about Starcraft 2. About SC2: while I do watch a lot of SC2 videos lately, I do remember my main gripe with it, it feels like I'm playing Tiberian Sun (haven't played SC1). Maybe Red Alert 2 spoiled me, but the entire game feels like it's mechanically stuck in 1998 and brings nothing new to the table. Don't get me wrong, the game is beautiful with very high production values and support from the developer (something I wished C&C and BFME could enjoy of too) but it's basically a late nineties RTS game with very good 3D engine which utilizes none of the advantages that such an engine can bring, from building rotation to how air units behave (Starcraft 2 implementation is treating them as ground units on another plane, but that's coming from someone who thinks that Generals implemented them the best so...). It basically feels like a 2D game ported into a 3D engine, it can't be excused by "Early 3D RTS" because it's not, it's a game released in 2010 and its main competition moved into the 3D space years before (7 years before actually) and did it rather well (and was brutally murdered by the publisher which shall not be named). It's a mechanically regressive game, which is a shame because it could be so much more than what it is if the developers actually allowed themself to innovate. *enters a bunker*

      @Zaxton Hong it's 2001... Still, that's after Red Alert 2, and 9 years is a really long development cycle...

      The biggest suggestion for campaign in general is keep track of where you lose a lot. Things really spiral out of control when you lose units, so making sure you steadily increase your army supply should be a high priority. When you reach 200 supply, build tons of production so you can replace your army as fast as possible. As for all in, It depends on which version. Vs nydus, you either go 3-4 tanks on both sides and 5-6 banshees to snipe nydus, or go full on mass tank and let artifact deal with nyduses. (Obviously you want both siege tank upgrades). Psi emitters and marauders with concussive shell are fantastic. Use artifact during the overlord wave. Vs flyers, you probably want mass Viking flying over bunkers +perdition turrets or planetary fortress. Obviously you want missile turret and Viking upgrades. As long as you have enough scvs, it shouldn't be too complicated. Use some tanks and marines to deal with Kerrigan
