Hi, my name is Garry and in this post, I have embedded the first two missions of StarCraft II – Wings of Liberty campaign. The names of these missions are Liberation Day and Outlaws. The first mission should have been easy but it has been a while since I have played. I got it right first go, but when I went to record it I kept blowing it.

Because I put 2 missions on the same video there was no way to start again on Outlaws. I needed 2 attempts and had to leave the first attempt on the recording. I still haven’t mastered my video editor yet.

You may have wondered in the past what the difference is between Hard and Brutal difficulty is. Well, I can assure you there is a significant difference. For example; on Hard difficulty, the enemy forces don’t go for the Medics first, and in “Outlaws” there isn’t an enemy siege tank waiting at the end, as there is on Brutal.

In Outlaws, I use the stutter-step attack technique, probably not very well. My way of executing this move is to use the curser and the stop button (the s key).

Remember; your marines cannot fire on the move; especially when they are running around like headless chooks. ( which they do a lot if you let them: Hit that S key!!!)

One of the keys to success in StarCraft 2 is; always have your buildings on a control group.

Doing this saves you having to go back to them to queue up new units.

Always have your rally point on one of the units in your attack force. Also, keep checking that the unit you chose is still alive. There were 2 or 3 occasions in the second mission where I had to nominate a new unit. The original one had become a duck, the dead kind.

I have seen other strategies used in Outlaws, but they didn’t work for me. My New Zealand favorite, for example at Rip It Up Gaming. (G’day mate!) The one that said “Death is a part of life” in All In ( really cheerful)

I had to formulate my own strategy.

Developing your own strategy is very important because you don’t want to be trying to remember how the other guy did it when you’re under pressure.

The first mission isn’t so tricky, but the second one can be. It’s the ten-minute time constraint that is the problem. I hope you find my strategy interesting. It’s the “Run Like Hell!” strategy.

I did pick up tips from watching other people, like “Rip It Up”

One last thing; there is a comment section below where you can ask me questions: I would encourage you to do so.

A few comments on affiliate marketing


One way of making money on the internet is allowing YouTube to place ads before your StarCraft 2 videos, but I can assure you that you are up against a ton of opposition. Zillions!

Most of them can’t speak English though, because they come from Korea. I should know, I am a veteran English language teacher.

An alternative would be to do what I am doing with Wealthy Affiliate. Apart from posting gameplay, you could promote computer and electronic equipment as an affiliate marketer.

  1. Thanks, Garry for writing this post on StarCraft 2 gameplay: Missions 1 & 2 on Brutal. This looks like a really intense game. Is there a huge learning curve for this game?

    I watched a part of your video. I liked what I saw, but was a bit perturbed at the games continual repeat for the same phrases all the time. Except for that, it was great. I’ll have to give it a try.
    Thanks for giving us this information.

    1. Thanks for the feedback, Lynne.
      Yes, there is a steep learning curve, but that is when it is the most fun.
      I’m not sure what you meant by repeat phrases. Did you mean how I had to start again?
      All the best.
