starcraft is past its use-by date
There is no neccecity to play at the level of a korean pro gamer, that guy was earning several hundred thousand a year for playing a video game.
As for supcom2 being better than sc2 now I know your trolling. I've played both I even enjoyed supcom2 but, there really is no where near as much strategy involved in it as starcraft, Macro, micro, counters, positioning have a far bigger effect in sc2 than they do in supcom. Frankly to me you sound a little like you tried it and got completely destroyed because you were too slow and have decided to hate on it while knowing nothing about it.
@op buy it, If you like strategy games you are unlikely to find any better, Its great fun to play at any level just don't be too put off playing on the ladder to start with people will wipe the floor with you until you have a bit of practice.
single player is pretty good as such things I even finished it which is something very rare as I mostly only play multi player in games these days
