sockfolder from Teamliquid.net has found a nice trick that you can use with your drones/scvs/probes to gain a little extra income. Basically, when your worker finishes gathering minerals, they stand for half a second before turning around to bring it back to your base. sockfolder discovered that if you press the Return Cargo button on the worker, it will immediately turn around, thus giving you minerals faster. So to make this trick work well, you need to queue up the commands for each worker.

Select a worker that is holding minerals and follow below:

  1. Hold Shift
  2. Press C (Return Cargo)
  3. Right click the mineral patch it was gathering from
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 quickly
  5. Be sure the last command queued up is the right click
  6. Repeat the whole process for the other workers

According to sockfolder, after 5 minutes of normal mining, a worker would gather 495 minerals. A worker with boosted mining, would gather 530 minerals, which is 7% more! Check out the video created by Trebis below to see this trick in action.

UPDATE: Patch 1.1.1 removes mineral boosting!

For those people who are in a college and love to play StarCraft 2, now is the time to join the Collegiate StarLeague. The CSL is where your school team will play against other schools. There are already over 130 teams registered, and if you don’t see your school listed, you can create it and tell your classmates to join! “Five 1-on-1 games of pure competitive StarCraft every week; live audience, commentators, and internet stream optional” is the formula that makes the CSL so awesome.

Registration ends on September 25th and you have to get 4-5 players in your team by October 3rd to play this season which starts on the weekend of October 16-17. Visit the CSL website to get more information: http://www.cstarleague.com

This is the most EPIC game I’ve seen yet on StarCraft 2. It is between 2 pros, TT1 (Protoss) vs MasterAsia (Zerg). If you have not seen this yet, you should watch it immediately. It is a bit long, but well worth it. I have embedded the 4 part series below, commentated by HD. Enjoy!
