StarCraft is possibly the only game in existence which can make me stress like a madman. Micro? Macro? APM? You need to know how to manage all of these and more, all at the same time, if you ever want to be any good on a competitive level. There are gods among men players who are capable of such feats, and South Africa is home to some of them. Want to see them in action? Some of our best players will be taking on the best New Zealand has to offer this weekend.

Starcraft II is probably the only game I have ever played that makes me stress a little bit too much. Why you ask? Oh, no reason… I just have to expand my base, make sure my resource income is up to speed, build units, attack the enemy, make sure the enemy doesn’t destroy me, tech up my units, expand some more, restock my army numbers, and… GAH TOO MUCH!

Blizzard have always monitored unusual activity, but they detail exactly how they manage cheating in their latest blog post.

The much anticipated Startcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm invitational is currently underway and if you are in the Fourways area I recommend heading on down to experience it first hand. There is food and drink (cash bar) aplenty and the setup is amazing.
