SC2 rant. - Page 2  

post #11 of 68
probably because of balancing reasons. they added more new units to make the game more fun, but i guess if they left all the old units , the balance of the game would be gone. this game is highly competitive so balance is important.

I payed SC back in the day and no, your straight wack if you think SC2 is just one updated. SC2 is an amazing game that has alot of diversity. The people who tend to get stomped are the ones who say it aint good. I personally never made it out of the bronze league once I got put there from gold, but I still think its amazing. I dont care if I get stomped a million times ITS A GAME. Enjoy it whether your good or bad.

Dont hate on a game just because "u mad bro?"

No they weren't. They were cool, but to impractical to be of much use. They worked defensively, if you were some kind of genius, but had little other use.

Good. Scourge were way to OP. Have carrier? See some scourge? Too late.

All three races have an AA only unit. All three have special abilties that make them more versatile. Exactly the same as it was with Brood War. All three races also have 2+ ground units that hit air. Every race has an AA building. Where's the lack of AA?

Story reasons. The colossi were created at a time when the Protoss did not use air vehicles for fighting.

Because that's what Starcraft is. If you add or remove races, it's not Starcraft anymore. If you Don't want Terrans v Protoss v Zerg, then play something that isn't Starcraft.

So Duke Nukem Forever should be Duke Nukem 2011? Portal 2 should be rebadged Portal 2011?Half Life Episode 3 should be Half Life whatever year it comes out?

There's a reason it's called Starcraft 2. Because it comes after Starcraft 1.

I hate on a game cuz its sucks. ADD some new ****. Can you imagine If D3 just had all the same chars and skills from d2, just thrown in to D3. THERE WOULD BE RIOTS, people would be killed over such a terrible thing.

I didnt pay a dime for this game, and I never will
Like I said, the game was made with e-sports in mind, not realism. Balance is key to e-sports.

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.
Starcraft 2 looks like it's doing fine to me. Is there any other strategy game with hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash prizes and tournament games streamed online several times a week to tens of thousands of people?

And yet Supreme Commander 2 flopped... even Supreme Commander 1 didn't get a huge competitive scene.

I feel bad for you wasting $60 on this recycled game, I didnt pay a dime I feel ripped off from it wasting my time. Those three races have been beaten to death. End of story, make new stuff.

Dunno, Why can't the nanosuit in Crysis also let me fly?

Colossus rapes so hard its not even funny, if they could shoot air it would be similar to letting siege tanks shoot air rofl.

Actually, if they re-launched Diablo 2 LoD with DX11 and updated graphics they can take all of my money.
