Which Race Should I Play?
The topic appears again and again in StarCraft community forums: “Which race should I play?” It’s a fair question. Each of StarCraft’s three unique races bring different units, buildings, core mechanics, and personalities to the battlefield. That doesn’t mean you can only play one—in fact, the best way to determine the race that suits you best is to play a bunch of games with all three—but it does make “Which race should I play?” a question worthy of careful consideration.

From StarCraft Pro Gamer to a Seat at Blizzard: TheBOy Interview
With StarCraft: Remastered launching on August 14, it’s never been a more appropriate time to look back on almost two decades of StarCraft history. This week we shine a spotlight on Kook ‘TheBOy’ Kibong, who was 18 years old when StarCraft came out. He soon became one of the best players in Korea, placing highly in numerous tournaments. Years later, he found himself at Blizzard Korea, where he currently helps manage StarCraft and StarCraft II esports.
Unit Spotlight: Protoss
Sophisticated psionic biology. Gilded technology that defies the laws of space and time. If the Protoss are arrogant, as their detractors claim, can you blame them? They were cruising the galaxy in golden superships when humans were still digging in the dirt for grubs.
Unit Spotlight: Terran
Terrans are the scrappy improvisers of StarCraft, relying on cobbled-together technology and a resilient spirit...
Unit Spotlight: Zerg
The Zerg are innumerable, merciless, and free of fear. A tide of teeth and spines, they pour across the universe, devouring everything in their path. In StarCraft: Remastered, view the galaxy’s most ferocious creatures in spitting, slavering HD.
Feature Preview: Chat
Chat Channels have been a core part of the StarCraft experience since 1998, and starting this summer, we’re making them even better!

Feature Preview: Leaderboard
It’s not just StarCraft’s graphics that are receiving an overhaul this summer—StarCraft: Remastered will also add modern matchmaking and ladder functionality, including a shiny new Leaderboard! At launch, StarCraft: Remastered will include leaderboards for Friends and IGRs.
