StarCraft 2 Community Event Rewrites History (VIDEO)
Have you ever wished there was some context to your StarCraft 2 matches? That your victory or defeat had a greater impact than simply affecting your ladder rating?
Well, now your SC2 matches can help determine the fate of the StarCraft universe — if you participate in the Ghosts of Tarsonis community event.
Spotted on TeamLiquid, Ghosts of Tarsonis is “a persistent-world metagame in which individual 1v1 StarCraft 2 matches influence an ongoing battle of conquest between two rival factions,” which sounds like some custom-made game of Risk, with SC2 matches replacing dice rolls.
The action is set during the time of the original StarCraft, when the Sons of Korhal clashed with the Confederacy, and posits an alternate history in which Mengsk was assassinated and Kerrigan never became the Queen of Blades.
Anyone with a North American StarCraft 2 account, regardless of league placement, can play in the Ghosts of Tarsonis campaign, and you can even earn custom-made achievements.
The campaign began January 20th and is expected to run for roughly 10 weeks, but players may join at any time. So head on over to sign-up now!
