If your name is Marisse stop reading here.
When I got Starcraft 2 I wanted it to be a challenge. I figured playing it on hard mode would be difficult… so I went with Brutal. Holy fuck… it has been brutal (who didn’t see that one coming?!)
I had been trying strategy after strategy and took a week off from it because I was sick of dying. It took forever just to get past 40% (on the timer) and then I was stuck around 95 – 98%. I refined the strat and at 2 am…
I had expected to get the Sarah Kerrigan (human) portrait unlocked only to find out that beating the final mission put me at 28 / 29 completed missions. I checked the achievement and found a mission called “Piercing The Shroud”.
It’s a SECRET FUCKING MISSION!
After a certain point in the game you can’t go back and pick up new missions (unless you have some old saves). I don’t have some old saves. My only saving grace is that you can choose the difficulty on each mission. I’ll just start over on casual and play to the part where I get the secret mission activation or whatever and do it on brutal. It really is a hassle though /le sigh.
I’ll probably take this opportunity to complete a bunch of the achievements in the single player. See if I can get ’em all knocked out but replaying the same missions over and over is the suck.
My 1v1 is at 65% win ratio though! That’s pretty good for as sparring as I play. I’m in the platinum league and I think I can hit Diamond if I put a little more effort into it.
