Another round of questions answered about StarCraft II

General Frida “Vilda” Hultman

Blizzard have been gathering questions from the StarCraft community and posted them with answers on Battle.Net for us to read. The fourth round of questions which are out since a couple of days, are answered by Karune from RTS Community Manager at Blizzard Entertainment. Enjoy!

1)Are the yellow minerals shown in the trailers harvestable?
Yes, they will be a harvestable high yield resource, meaning each harvest rotation will result in greater mineral quantities than the standard blue minerals. This gives players more strategic choices when trying to evaluate where they wish to expand. Expand to the high yield but risk easier discovery? Or expand to a safer area but earn fewer resources?

2)Will resource sharing be allowed between allies?
Yes, it is our plan to have this in the game, though there is still much testing and balancing revolving around this ability.

3)Will allied chat be enabled by default for pre-set teams?

4)Is the Zealot charge ability an upgrade as well?
Yes, this ability is upgraded through the Protoss War Shrine.

5)What types of future community updates will there be? will be updated with regular unit and building profiles. Furthermore, there are several projects in the works planned for the Blizzards RTS Community as a whole, which we will share at a later time.
