Default the thing that would turn me off SC2

well i know SC2 should be a good game but there is a few thing could turn me away easy, and thats if it uses advanced 3d graphics so we need top of the line computers just to play the dam thing with no lag, or it turns out like warcraft 3 (sorry to people who like) sure the graphics were good but the food limit was only 100 and some units take up 7, so we couldnt really make a army as we could in starcraft where the food limit was 200

anyone got some predictons on how the graphics would be and how a good a computer people will need?

If you can play WoW fine you should be able to play Starcraft 2 fine.

Default Re: the thing that would turn me off SC2

Yeah Im concerned about this-not for myself but for my friends. I recently just got a nice high end gaming comp so I dont really have anything to worry about but I have a chain of friends that I ALWAYS used to play SC with (and get my butt kicked by), but I'm fearful that some of them will be deterred by high system requirements...

Heh, at the same time I would love to see an amazing looking high-end 3d graphics engine used to take advantage of high end comps, but really thats not whats important.

I wouldn't worry about it, Im sure it'll run fine on mid-range PCs. Blizzard usually doesn't go overboard on system requirements.

Now that you mention it, I hope that I don't have to buy a new computer for SC2, because I probably won't buy it then!

But I haven't worried about that for a second yet... Usually Blizzard games run fine on many different specifications.

Yeah, Blizz has always made it so that you don't need uber comps to play their games without lag/slowdown. So we really don't have to worry, SC2 will run fine on mid-level comps.

Default Re: the thing that would turn me off SC2

Usually I don't care about system reqs for the games. My comp is 3 years old now and it can still run C&C3 and SupCom demo fine. And it seems I'm getting a new comp as a birthday present next october so bring it on! Make it as nifty looking as you want Blizz!

But having settings that could be varied from absolute minimum (even the worst [in nowaday terms] comps can run it) to the highest possible level would be nice. Then you can run it smoooothly with any comp and still have the extreme eye candy if you have a comp good enough.

When no one was looking, Lex Luthor took FORTY cakes! He took 40 cakes. That's as many as four tens. And that's terrible.

Just imagine, did you know that SC could run on a 486 PC with 4Mb of RAM?

Hehe, I really am not worried about SC2 running on very high system requirements.
Our P3's should be able to handle it

I ran Sc on a 8mb 1995 comp when I first bout it. I am not worried in the least even Medieval total war 2 only needs a 5200 graphics card to run. I'm sure SC2 will be fine.

hmm fair points, now that i think of it they made WoW so that it dosnt need a top of the line computer which is good cause i like playing that (i was very surprised how few WoW players had played warcraft 3 or knew anything of the history)

I highly doubt your P3 will be able to run it... you guys have to realize WoW came out 3 years ago... if you can run wow decently you'll probably only be able to run SC2 on low settings. Trust me... its not going to be a super advanced engine that requires the latest hardware to run... but its also not going to run on the same computer you use to run WC3 / WoW on medium to low settings.

But for all we know, it could. Blizz has been very nice when it comes to system requirements in the past, and hopefully they will keep that in mind for SC2...

I'm sure they will but the game isn't going to run on the same computer you used to play starcraft when it came out.

I agree. However, I feel that if Blizz is smart, they will have it so that older comps(3-4+ years old) can run SC2 fine. Newer ones, will of course, be able to have high-res graphics.
