TerribleTerribleDamage SC2 VDevGame1

Use during commentaries.

"Terrible, terrible damage" is a phrase coined by Dustin Browder, and became well known due to his frequent use of the phrase while describing the action in his commentating of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty demonstration matches during the game's development. It went on to become another of Blizzard's in-jokes, and the phrase is the cheat code for god mode and to one shot everything in StarCraft II.

Uses by Browder[]

Browder used the term several times in the Sonkie vs Yellow match at BlizzCon 2008[1] and used it again during Battle Report 2[2] and at the BlizzCon 2009 exhibition match.[3] It was used as Browder's nickname at BlizzCon 2009.[3]

The term was used so often that it was proposed as a cheat code. Browder acknowledged the mockery.[4]

  4. With all these advanced techniques you mentioned, such as focus fire (http://www.1up.com/do/previewPage?pager.offset=0&cId=3172090&p=1), Will the Stalker still do Terrible, Terrible damage even without focus fire?

    Also, I think Terrible Terrible damage should be a cheat in StarCraft II that makes all your units kill everything in one shot.
