    In short, you'll get a Feat of Strength and bonus portraits in live HotS if you level all three races to 30 on the beta.

    I wouldn't agree with that. It's more like a pyramid and your own skill and ability to learn determines what step of the pyramid you can reach. You can play terribly and still have fun with the game, or you can macro/micro like a god and have fun.

    However, HotS will be fixing the general learning of how to play competitively, with the addition of inductive tutorials and walkthroughs of how the game operates in player vs player/AI.

    If you try to improve the stupid way ( try to win by using pro build orders), it's extremly frustrating. If you improve by learning the basics and improving your macro and later on micro, decision making, and so on, the game becomes more fun

    Like others have said just work on macro and you'll get better. If you have more stuff than your opponent 9 times out of ten you'll win. You can also do silly strategies like nukes, or nydus worms, etc and have fun P:

    This. So much this.

    But I still agree on that the learning curve is steep, at least for starters.

    The campaign looks really good. And damn, Hellbats damage needs to be nerfed, at least a little. Four of them +a medivac healing them shouldn't be so hard to deal with. x_X

    Just need some roaches or stalkers, should be pretty much obligatory in HotS with the amount of early harassment you can do.
