Legacy of the Confederation Tribute

A forum member, Arkane, created an awesome tribute to Legacy of the Confederation, check it out below:

Legacy of the Confederation Logo

Legacy of the Confederation (LotC) was an amazing set of (fan-made) campaigns for StarCraft/Brood War that spanned dozens of maps and included custom music, units, etc... Around the time that StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty launched, we learned that LotC was going to be completely remade for SC2 which included tons of voice acting. However it seems the project has stalled, as there's not been any news posted for quite awhile.

Check out LotC for StarCraft/Brood War over at CampaignCreations: Past Prologue (Episode I), Dawn of Darkness, (Episode II), and Fallen Angel (Episode III)

Galaxy of Fire is the StarCraft II LotC, although the last news posted was back in 2009. Still the teaser is pretty awesome!

All you ever wanted to know about StarCraft

Starcraft.orgWhile waiting patiently for Heart of the Swarm's release (except for those lucky enough to be in areas where it launched Monday), we've been filling out Starcraft.org's Game Information section. The plan was to wait until all of StarCraft/BroodWar was finished, release that; and then work on StarCraft II and release that however it there is simply so much information that waiting until every small detail was finished would likely mean putting it off for weeks, if not months.

For those of you who still visit, Starcraft.org is currently being run on minimal staff (read: two people, one of whom lives in the shadows), thus updates of this scale will take awhile. If you'd like to help, please consider sending links, screenshots, or other useful material to be included in our info sections. For instance a screenshot showing off a Psionic Storm (for either version of the game), the goal is to really live up to our old motto "#1 source for all things StarCraft!". Though we can't pretend like there aren't any other resources out there, so we'd also like to include links to sites like Liquipedia for more strategy-centric information.

For anyone wondering: Commenting is currently disabled due to forum upgrades, and will be down for the foreseeable future. I have considered implementing something like Disqus, Livefyre, or IntenseDebate but I'm wary about things ending up too complicated.

Also: If you're interested in helping us out and have past experience using WordPress/forums with WYSIWYG editors (or even better HTML), I could really use some awesome news posters. In the mean time you can contribute news stories directly by using our handy new form.
