It'll probably be like brawl. MASSIVE hype coupled with the fact that its predecessor is old and noobs think newer = better will kill the original.

Making the game easier doesn't put more emphasis on strategy and competitive play, it just makes for another dose of eye candy with a side of shitty game mechanics.

Starcraft came out in '98... so yeah, I imagine a lot of people think its inferior and Starcraft II is automatically gonna kick its ass in every aspect lol.


We'll see.

Im fine with it...some just dont understand that it takes time and a lot of hard work to make a good game :/.

Blizzard is the type where they rather delay 10 times than release a game with a major problem, because god knows if they did people would complain about that too

Haha, Hellgate London sucks now, their creators are bankrupt so there's no point in playing because there's no content anymore lol.

Uhh guys? Blizzard does NOT delay. They don't even announce release dates until they're sure the game is done. You're thinking of Nintendo.

And no, this will not be another Brawl. Blizzard knows better than to **** up their long awaited sequel. Nintendo apparently does not, because what we wound up with was their greatest disappointment to date.

From what I see from screenshots and gameplay, the overall apm required to play this game is low compared to the original. You're pretty much given multicommand and automine as a gift with the promise that there will be tons more for you to control. What made starcraft great was the balance of micro/macro and the strategy and technique that went with it.

I certainly respect Blizzard as a company more than Nintendo when it comes to these things, but as far as I can see the skill involved in macro is being tossed to the wind and this will be another "micro intensive game" like warcraft. *shudders*

The skill gap between "pro" and "noob" will be diminished greatly which is never good for a long term competitive game. I only hope I'm proven wrong so the original starcraft I grew to love will be allowed to rest in peace.
