A big thanks to all the hosts, players, and casters of NA-10 for a smooth and fun tournament. Ho Lee Fuk Eclipsis took first place with an undefeated cruiser through the winner’s bracket. Cyberdyne Systems finished second, defeating third place 7th Fleet in the Loser’s Bracket Finals in some gruelingly long games. 21Z took a solid 4th place. This was the last tournament of Star Battle 2.0.
Star Battle 3.0 Release:
Star Battle 3.0 comes out Monday at 3pm Eastern Daylight Savings time. The map features a new ship type (a Protoss shield tank called the Colossus, based on the Shuttle model from the Heart of the Swarm campaign), free-roaming on-board fighter control, stronger divisions between ship roles (and different roles than you might be used to for existing ships), new abilities, new achievements, new creeps, new terrain, and best of all, the code has be re-engineered from the ground up with performance in mind.
In concert with the new release the Star Battle community teams will be pushing to update the wiki, raise awareness of various sites, and in general get more people involved in making Star Battle a rich and engaging experience. If you’re one of the people interested in doing this, investigate the Community section of the Play Starbattle forums, or contact WildFire on teamspeak. There’s always more to be done!
