Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm is quickly approaching release so I want to take some time and preview the differences I’ve noticed after playing a lot of the Beta.  Please note this is a beta so things I write about may no longer be valid in the build your playing or the final shipped version.

My Starcraft 2 History

I have played Starcraft 2 WOL since release mainly as Terran.  I do have an account for each race though.  I have roughly 4000 games of 1v1 played in Wings of Liberty.  I have reached Masters 2 seasons as Terran, while Diamond is my highest ranking for Protoss and Zerg.
