in the last tournament at MLG the stream was populated with hundreds and hundreds of viewer, if sc2 died to u thats ok, but dont say it is already dead.
SC2 has lost a huge amount of players and won;t be gaining much or any new players at all with the HOTS release.....they screwed up SC2 the game is not balanced and boring as hell like I said haha. Games like LoL and DOTA 2 are balanced because most of everything is OP and the heros balance themselves out plus they are much more exciting to play and watch and actually require teamwork.
I was master league in SC2 for a long time and actually have beaten GM players on ladder but Blizzard broke the game with its balance patches and only having two guys balance a game is retarded I'm sorry but its true.

SC2 might not be dead but its continuing to lose players each and every day vs gaining them......lot's of pros have dropped out of the scene and the pro scene is now stagnant as it rewards brain dead mechanical gameplay vs strategy which games such as LoL and DOTA strive on. I have the BETA for HOTS but I haven't even played the BETA and don;t plan on playing it either.
With the small number of units in SC2, the imbalances in it, the low player base, it's rewarding of mechanics vs strategy, etc, I'd hardly call SC2 one of the best RTS games of all time.......WC3 was better in each and every way.
SC2 was at it's best when it rewarded creative strategic game play which was within the first 1-2 years after it's release now its all about having carpel tunnel and seeing who's a faster player.Edited by Mwarren - 11/8/12 at 7:42pm
