    For those of you who enjoy watching e-sports occasionally but have not kept updated, the MLG Winter Championship is here. Without further detours, here is the MLG live page, from which you can watch great StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty action given to you by many of the best players on the world!


    Patch 1.5 is being prepared for StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty.

    Read everything here.



    EDIT: And yes I know I'm late and this isn't too complete, but Archian had posted the Diablo III news and I didn't want to trample over it. Also, I'm in a hurry right now. :goblin_jawdrop:

    So is the lack of art tools what prevented someone from making some equivalent of war3 model editor?

    I don't know everything that could be done with Magos, but wasn't it mostly animation transference and simple model edits? To accomplish the dream of many of making an universal WarCraft medieval mod, we're going to need more than just simple model edits.

    DRG(Z) vs Marineking(T) coming up on MLG!

    yeah but remember that after they release art tools most programers will start making programs like the art tools but more complex since they already got the basics.

    fixed.

    With magos you could do special effects, apply the correct texture if the model doesn't recognize that there should be a texture with it, but cannot do the whole mapping.

    What is mostly lacking is ANY tool of ANY language that can export a model to M3 and again making sure its texture/s are with it. If the 3ds max M3 export/import plugin that currently can do a lot of things - attachments, set the textures, set team color - if that were done on a separate tool that would've had a point. So far I use 3ds max only in case I ever decide to export smth to sc2 and that is rare, for anyone who doesn't do all entirely on 3ds max, such tool is needed. What is really the problem is you cannot use anything since you can't export to M3, exporting is the main issue of all, I personally do things related to it almost never.

    Season 7 has started and:

    Match-making to experience changes in Season 7

    This is awesome! Instead of having the fixed win-loss ratio which so far was, example:
    BEFORE:
    make e.g 15 wins more, start matching next leaguers; lose some games, sorry no next leaguers until you reach exactly 15 wins again or even more if you delay too much. Yes - lose because some lamer did some all in and you're back to <15 wins. 13 or 14 wins more won't help you, should be the same difference of wins losses.

    NOW:
    you lose from some lamer and instead of having to win X amount even after losing you match the higher leaguer, beat him, beat some other HIGHERS, the game ignores that you lost some lame game, you will still get promoted faster than the fixed '15 wins more' example.

    Fck QQ whiners 'I'll lose more - play more not to lose...' this is a LADDER! Hope it stays.

    Btw HotS multiplayer changes

    Some release date for the patch would be good. Many people are starting to grow impatient.

    Please, do not quote this image any more, it's horrible :( Also I do not see how it will change anything. In dem few years people may start doing stuff more, when the enlightenment hits them to realize they can do a lot more stuff than in older games, until then nothing.
