Play Supreme Commander 2 at an elite level - and then play starcraft 2 at any decent level, and you will clearly see which one makes more sense.
unnecessary macroing? you think economic management and production management is 'unnecessary macroing?' in a strategy game? come on, admit it, you're just lazy. starcraft's stategy is much, much more developed and fleshed compared to some upstart game. people have been playing this game professionally FOR YEARS. people get paid to solely analyse strategies and tactics in this game, and you are telling me about the 'elite' level of supreme commander? rofl
a brief introduction
starcraft is a complete game. to play it well, you need to be fast and you need to be smart. thats the bottom line, thats why its so competitive, thats why people that play one handed hate it
