I feel like I will get my butt kicked if I even try playing online, since I can't beat Hard AI.
I can last a while. The AI usually attacks me about twice, and I wipe out their entire fleet each time. Then when I go in, they completely obliterate my army.
I think I'm just playing too slowly. I'm not sure how to play faster... I'm assigning groups and scouting and stuff. It's just, somehow even though I have 15 more workers than the AI has, the AI is gathering hundreds more resources than I am. And, the AI somehow has like 8 ships and 4 of those giant dreadnaught things (sorry, WH40k nerd; whatever it is the Terran have) in the time it takes me to build about 2 of Battlecruiser and Dreadnaught.
you'd play it for maybe a week or so then put it in the closet and never look at it again. just like my childhood. why didn't you love me dad? why? superblah750
I was the same way since this is my first SC game. I did two practice rounds with AI then went online. I'm 4 and 4 so far. just get into a game and have fun with it. The game is too fun not to jump into MP.
