[Blizzard] Starcraft 2 Battle Report: Terran vs Protoss - Page 3

post #21 of 57
SCII is not SC with a few more units and better graphics. New engine, new units, new B.Net, new campaign, new maps etc etc. Balancing alone takes what feels like ages. Not to mention there are going to be three different releases of SCII, one for each race. No they won't be all released at the same time.

Yeah. You should get back into it.

Yes unfortunately I am all too familiar with that motto. Theirs are the only games I have waited for on release dates because I know I will enjot them. I wish someone of their calibre would give me something concrete to hold onto. I hope to be playing this one for years to come so I am patiently waiting, but deep down inside I wish I could get my hands on it right now.

Yeah. You should get back into it.
Looks exactly the same as the original to me. Just with a "WHOLE NEW ENGINE!" as you guys so eloquently put it.

My point is, they were supposed to release it...now, then they cut content, and pushed it back another year. Whereas Dawn of War 2 has been in the works for less time, has 4 races to balance, and is coming out sooner. And yes it has a "WHOLE NEW ENGINE!".

It's cool that you guys defend Blizzard like this "oh they make great games etc". But they also do this bait and switch crap to keep you interested for far longer than you should be.

"COMING MARCH STARCRAFT 2!" "Nevermind DECEMBER!" "Nevermind NEXT YEAR!!...late" "Now we're going to SPLIT THE GAME UP AND MAKE YOU PAY $100 FOR EXTRA CAMPAIGNS!"

Remember Wrath of the Lich king? They were going to keep it in beta forever until Warhammer gave them something to fear, and then they sped up production and got the expansion out in a timely manner. They're just Lazy imo, cause they think they have nothing to fear in the RTS world.

Even if thats the case, they really haven't had anything to fear. C&C (even Dune), Age of Empires, they were great, but not as successfull. Supreme commander, or DoW were great, and more innovative, but in the end they did not keep my interest very long. I am hoping DoW2 kicks it up a notch and maybe it will be something I can see myself playing long term.

I am getting rather annoyed with the game they play also, but I think until Blizzard bites the dust with a flagship title they will continue to have nothing to fear.

Dawn of War isn't in the same conversation as Starcraft. Sorry. I played that game for a while, actually, and really liked it.

But over time, you realize that it doesn't have the staying power and subtleties of Blizzard games. If you don't like 'em, of course that's your prerogative. Blizzard's delays are annoying for everyone, but frankly, they can do whatever they want. A lot of us are still going to fork over our money until another developer can do it better. So far, no one comes close (in this genre).

Let Blizzard release it when they damn please. Every game they make is game of the year for a reason! You have to keep in mind that SC1 was sooo well balanced for a reason.. now with new units and such they're going to need lots of people to play this over and over until they decide that players of equal skill have no advantage with one race over another.

But Blizzard hurry up please! I can't wait to play this
