Please, unlimited resolution, FOV, etc. All the Blizzard RTS suffer from binoculars narrow view which is terrible for strategy games.
post #4 of 140
I wonder if it's going to include UI changes such as being able to select infinite amounts of units. Because that was a major balance point in the original Starcraft/Brood War. Without that limitation a lot of the spellcasters will be disturbingly overpowered.

If it's just SC/BW on the sc2 engine without UI improvements then why even bother?

This brings up a lot of questions surrounding their approach. I just hope they choose better people to lead the project as some changes may be needed to balance the game if unlimited unit selection/spells are able to be used without tabbing to the next unit - because the people they had working on Starcraft 2 were far too indecisive and backwards to make essential changes...and that's why sc2 is basically dead on every level but co-op and pro tourneys.

They won't support 21:9 resolutions because it gives unfair advantage in the competitive scene - and they seem unwilling to support it for other game modes if we go off of all their recent offerings as examples.

Sounds like they want to re-capture the competitive scene they had in the early 2000's.

Personally I'm just going to love playing the remastered campaign.
As an RTS Noob the original Starcraft was a nightmare to play due to AI pathfinding.

It made them memory games where you had to quickly scan areas to keep up with what was going on. That was kinda the intent.

Blizzard isn't CaveDog. One survived the other did not.

That would be nice. I would enjoy it a lot if it is done right. Although the old Starcraft does have some sort of nostalgia hanging around the controls, I would prefer modern controls (the ones used in SC2)

It will be retextured units in SC2, like Diablo 1 was in Diablo 3.
