believe me man, i know all about blizzard and their desire to do anything (including the destruction of e-sports) for money.

Yeah pretty much this. It's over man, it's over. Honestly if you don't see the beauty in SCII than we aren't missing you anyway.

SCII is so much better . Glad most people are moving on, even if korea is slowly moving on.

SCII, the future of E-sports!

sc2 popularity in korea is getting lower and lower. its not even one of the top10 played games in pc cafes anymore. sc2 doesnt even have a teamleague ffs

if sc2 is the future of e-sports, then e-sports is moving backwards :X

it really isnt sc2's time, blizzard is just trying to push sc2 as an e-sport because they know it wouldnt develop as one on its own with brood war around. competition is fierce and without a doubt the players in the brood war scene are more skilled.

yeah, maybe sc2 will surpass brood war in popularity. it hasnt in korea, i dont know about the foreign scene because the korean scene is the one im interested in. but popularity is not what im talking about. im talking about junk like mbs, enormous control groups, armies that automatically arc + all the other junk that blizzard has implemented to make sc2 as noob friendly as possible

i really cant watch sc2 streams/vods, its just so incredibly boring compared to brood war. blobs running into eachother, english commentators, iron and zergbong winning gsls lol

im not bitter at sc2, its more like im bitter at blizzard for *certain* things theyve done. as a long time brood war fan, blizzard is dead to me (not because of sc2 - well not from the game anyway.)
Sorry but I disagree big time with that statement. BW had its time, we're talking about over 12 years now. It's like going back to doom or the original UT and saying that their time isn't up. Given they weren't e-sports, etc.... but my point is, BW stood the test of time and now its time for a change. I tried playing BW after playing SCII, I didn't mind the 12 groups, etc.... and tbh, it probably suits my style more because I don't use control groups much so I would get a big advantage, but, SCII has better gameplays aspects that make the game more fun and less about who can click faster, etc....

I dunno about korea, but, with more and more SCII tournaments around the world(NASL, GSL, TAWL, that IGN one, etc....) SCII will only grow more and most BW progamers will eventually leave BW and make the switch. Boxer did and so did a large handful already, I'm sure we'll see more once the time comes

Actually, I think patch 1.07 which was the main patch that fixed a lot of issues was released in 2002 or so, but, I agree, BW has had a lot of time. SCII has only been around < 1 year and its constantly changing. Once they fix a couple more imba units and all exps come out, watch this game blossom

^^Don't play against any Ts and don't run your banes into his thors XD

You seem to think the future of e-sports is in Korea... this is where you are going wrong ( which is apparent if you look where all the money is forming now ).

You can't live in the past forever.

Wonder what he meant by inferior. Inferior in what way? Skills required to play? fun? graphics? engine? unit?

I can say that when I was much more involved in SC1 back in middle school than I am with SC2 now. But I would never play SC1 over SC2 now. The graphics, engine, pathing is just unbearable once youve played II.
