Is there a legit way to zoom out more?

Any legit way to zoom out more in Starcraft 2? I feel like I could handle much more information on the screen. If I could zoom out a little further, it’d be awesome.

What is the infamous “Archon Toilet”?

What is a ladder reset?

What is it? Why is it needed? (What is it purpose?) At what time intervals is it performed?

What's the quickest way to get all of the achievements in StarCraft 2?

As the title says, are there any shortcuts to getting all of the achievements in the game (preferably without cheesing through games, etc.)?

Anyone know the tools/process used by Starcraft 2 commentators to create the screen recordings of games?

What are all the special hotkeys in starcraft 2?

What are all the special hotkeys in starcraft 2 (English version) for every race? By special I mean not the ones used for […]

How does Starcraft 2's matchmaking system work?

How advanced is the matchmaking system in Starcraft 2? Does the server attempt to match you up with people who are as good as you, or does it just randomly pair you up with another player? And if it’s the former, how well does it work?
