SC2 rant.  

post #1 of 68
Thread Starter 
It shouldnt even be named starcraft 2 I think it should be named Star craft 2010. Because that's what it is. Its starcraft one, remade with 2010 tech, thats really it. They didnt really add anything, they changed units, but nothing really added, without something being removed. Im talking about multilayer only I dont have the time to play single player in this game. They took out some of the best units, lurkers are gone??? Why?? They were so good. Also the zerg suicide air bombers are gone, and changed to anti ground. Every unit is anti ground. There is almost no anti air in SC2. Where as SC1 had a better balance of air and ground. WHY CANT COLOSSUS'S SHOOT AIR???? I mean the most advanced race, and the thing is as tall as air units, so why cant they shoot air?? wouldnt the most advance race, think that maybe they should have anti air, on a unit that can be shot by air?? I think thats really stupid. The only race I didnt get bored of is zerg, but why do you have to click the queen every time to make more larva?? shouldnt there be a setting to put it on auto. Why make me click that 100 times per game. I really dont think this game lives up to the name of star craft two. I mean 3 races?? really?? Thats like if Diablo 2, only had three races. And the same races as the first one. Diablo 2 would be hated for doing that, cuz its stupid. Why recycle everything?? why not one new race?? Until there is some new stuff I'm calling it star craft 2010.

I completely agree - I was absolutely flamed last time I made this comparison. I have been hiding in my starcraft 2 'hate' corner ever since

The game was made with e-sports in mind.

Blizzard really made no effort with this game. They were too scared to ruin the 'winning' formula. But the thing is, the 'winning' formula is over 10 years old. Not only is it time to adpot it into modern gaming, but it could do with a new spark to breathe new life into it, and bring more players into the game. A developer that is too scared to go a new direction is the first signs of its demise.

Although I got flamed for this as well, the RTS I give as an examply is Supreme Commander 2 Multiplayer (forget SP it's a joke). The game is over year old, yet it has some of the best animations + interface I have seen in an RTS. Real pleasure playing it.

People really expected a fourth race. Introduction to Xel Naga would of been nice. Looks like we won't see Xel Naga units until Starcraft 3, if at all. By SC3, I mean another decade and a half or so.

Very few concept units were introduced. Only unique ones are few and far between like roach/reaper. Everything else is just units shuffled inbetween races. New Dark Archon is Infestor, guardian = brood lord, vulture + firebat = hellion, MoShip = Arbiter. etc.
