    Perhaps it would be better if you wrote an e-mail to their support, claiming it was supposed to be "NugBeater" or "BigBeater" but you made a typo and would like to change it.

    I seem to recall that they were taking a really harsh stance against offensive handles during the beta so you'd better investigate your options.

    It's 802. Although I don't know if that will stay the same if I get my name changed. Oh, and North America.

    Yeah, it looks like you can't make additional characters - you're stuck with what you have. I read their offensive name policy and it looks like if they detect an offensive name they will change it to something random and then allow you to pick a new one at a later date. So maybe I'll just wait for that to happen.

    And I also read that you can't add friends across different regions?

    Yeah, at the moment the different regions have different servers working independently.

    They promised to change it along the way, but it's probably bullshit and they'll never actually do anything about it.

    It's worth playing against the AI mainly to get a feel for your units, timings, and tech, but not really for viable strategies.

    If you're worried about your ladder ranking, custom games or FFA doesn't count against it (but you'll have to finish or skip your practice - not placement - matches before you can access it). Although, it's a lot more variable who you're up against and with a FFA you have three other opponents to worry about... but still lets you get a glimpse of what you might generally go up against.

    FFA is kinda lame as Terran. Turtle then build a crap load of Thors. Press "I Win" button.

    Kind of true in general though. What are the counters to Thors? Because they seem massively overpowered at the moment.

    I play zerg, but I find that mutas and lings counter thors really well. Thors severely lack mobility, so while thors "hard counter" mutas, mutas can be everywhere at once and force the terran to fuck around and build tons of thors while zerg can make something that will do well vs thors, and expand, too.

    So, I added every EUfag and with me there's 7 of us. I linked this thread to my sc2 butt buddy so he'll probably add you to.
    One more and we can rage all day long at 4v4.

    No ones ever on on the NA server anymore. Even when the game first came out, there were only 3 people at most playing at a time. And when they are on they don't talk, even the host of this thread doesn't know how to PM properly...

    You should carry a monocle and when you hear that, you slowly take that out, wear it, and then do this

    Protoss can counter Thors with immortals. It's not cheap, but they're still more cost effective than thors. A good protoss, who can micro his ships, can devestate thors with void rays. He'll have to find somethign to charge their lazors on before enganging, and make sure his void rays are spread out though.

    2 immortals (250 minerals, 100 gas, 4 supply each) will take out a thor (300 minerals, 200 gas, 6 supply) without losses. 3 immortals will take out 2 thors with one immortal surviving. Possibly 2 if properly microed.

    Depending on the environment, a zerg player can try to get the Thor with broodlords. They do a surprising amount of damage and they outrange the thor. Thors anti-air is kind of weak, but splashes. The main reason thors rape mutalisks is because they clump up.

    If you build a dozen zerglings (300 minerals, 6 supply) and get a surround on an undefended thor, they can kill it as well.
