So I got an achievement in sc2 called a "feat of strength." You have to kill all the zerg structures in the level "devil's playground". These are hidden achievements, most of you guys got one for buying the collectors edition.

This is an explanation on feats of strength from another forum.
"The idea of Feats of Strength is from WoW, where Blizzard first made achievements. They are achievements worth no points that are generally restricted to a certain time period. They may be from a special holiday event or maybe a tournament you participated in. So they form a history of what you have done in the past, since most of them cannot be obtained after the special event is over. They aren't achievements that you can say "I want this achievement, here's what I am going to do to get it." Instead, you just have to be in right place at the right time. I am pretty sure the existing Feats of Strength are just placeholders to test the system. One example I could see is "Ladder Season 1: First Place". If they have a Halloween event, maybe "Played a game during Halloween Weekend 2010."

Anyway, lets post our findings on that here. I assume there are plenty of "destroy all the enemy buildings in a campaign level even if you didn't have to" feats of strength.

Well, maybe they're harder to find than that, or less prevalent than that. The level with the stone zealots has a real "you're not supposed to kill the zerg force" feeling to it, but I did anyway (on normal mode). Didn't get anything. Then I killed all the Protoss. Nothing.

No. But if you want, I can list all the Feats of Strength for you. There aren't very many.

Nice. You have to start a new campaign to play those levels on brutal mode. You can't just go back on your hard campaign and play them anyway you want. It's got to be a brutal campaign. Bit of a bummer. But that's only with "Brutal 25". You've got 4 freebies, so if you glitched the game a bit (which I did) on your hard campaign to get all the upgrades for the final battle, you can still use that win as part of your "list" achievement.

The glitch works like this. When you get all the research upgrades, keep playing levels, and the guy keeps buying your last sale of research. You can get infinite money this way.

There's a bug in the game so you can't get 100% of the campaign achievements. Or there's one that hasn't been discovered yet or something. Odd they haven't patched it yet. So I have 99% campaign achievements and exploration. hooray.

Finished the 6 first brutal missions yesterday. It is brutal. =D

Although everything might take a little longer there's only one that's close to "hard" and that's the last level. I tried it twice on brutal. The easier time was when I used the psi emitter brood lord strategy.

Get the zerg mind control device, mind control lots of brood lords/mutalisks/whatever you want, and own kerrigan when she attacks with brood lords. Her attacks own just about anything human, but her super strong attacks are wasted against broodlings. win.

I also tried psi disruptor to slow down land units in order to line them up for my walls of tanks. It worked pretty well, but Kerrigan's a bitch.

When I played the last mission I just had a bunch of BCs Yamato Kerrigan in the face until she ran out of hp. Does that not work on Brutal?

Yeah. But she one shots your battlecruisers and then you're out of a shit ton of money. Her armor really cuts high damage units, so it's good to use small units like squads of marines.

as anyone tried EMPing her? Or using spectre abilities?

I never lost many BCs to her since she was usually busy attacking my small stuff while my BCs flew over and charged their yamatos. Again, not on Brutal, but it's a thought.

I haven't used Spectres at all--I went for Ghosts. Snipe spam seemed to work ok on her with only a few of em, so I presume more might continue to work.

I struggled with a few of the missions, but then you "figure the missions out" and then it's ok.

SO what do you prefer. Going against air or ground on the last lvl? Is it possible to redo? Anyone tried nuking her?

Nuking would be hard. I prefer fighting the air units. It's just easier. The nydus worms get progressively harder the more you leave out there. And the air units are pretty effectively taken down by vikings. But you've got to have a shit ton ready for the Leviathan attack, or get some nukes ready on that.

I heard spectres are really cheap. You can stun her and it works.
