Starcraft 2 Experience Points

Heart of the Swarm has introduced experience points in Starcraft 2. This allows you to level up each race to level 30 by earning experience while playing that race. To earn experience you can play ranked and unranked games along with custom games on Blizzard maps. You will earn Starcraft 2 experience for each unit and building you destroy and the experience will be granted at the end of each match. The more you play with a certain race the more experience you will earn, the best option is don’t try to level all 3 races up at once because if you are still learning Starcraft 2 you will want to stick with one race.

As you level up you will earn rewards for each level. Each level has it’s own set of rewards that it will unlock for that race. The rewards consist of race decals, portraits and new skins for that race. Right now the max level is level 30 although Blizzard may raise the leveling cap in future patches and with the next expansion Legacy of the Void.

 How to earn Experience points in Starcraft 2

I’ve had a lot of people ask me how they could earn experience points in Starcraft 2 to level up, with Heart of the Swarm being so new I’ll share a few things I’ve learned so far that grants the most experience and will expand on the list as new experience guides are learned.

Most efficient way I found was a 4v4 with insane AI on your side, and 50% very easy on theirs. Megaton is a good map for it because they’re all bunched together. Basic strategy is as follows:

- Order the AI to only defend the base
- Go with as macro a build as possible until 5 minute mark
- Borrow as many resources from allies as humanly possible
- At least as zerg, max out before the 10 minute mark and spam ovies/overseers from there. I have like 10-15 hatches with plenty of queens, all fed by AI money.
- Around 12 minute mark is teh happy point where you can maximize experience/time ratio (any longer and you lose the % speed bonus and further unit construction hits diminishing returns, any earlier and you won’t have build up enough resources both on your and your enemie’s side to make it worth it)
- You can get 1/1/1 upgrades if you want but you shouldn’t go much higher. Reason is anything that doesn’t finish when the game ends doesn’t count, so be careful with timing, especially if you’re spamming down something like spires/greater spires at the end.
- Attack all four enemy command centers with mass muta. That’s one of the most efficient units to mass not only becauase it’s an easy gas sink, but also because they can most quicly take out the CC’s which is enough to force the very easy comps to surrender.
