Well I just hope so. I know 'ActiBLIZZion' has been hard at work trying to digitize and cut out the middle men (production, shipping/distribution, & resellers) to maximize profit margin.

Well that's what I'm hoping for.

At least I assume that is what he meant, Delphin please feel free to correct me.
Sorta, I really meant that I like to be able to buy my games in person & have something to put on the shelf. I also try to avoid having my cc info & personal details stored 'for my convenience' by any company.

I own 2 SC2 accounts and I've and will spend more time playing it than any other game. Why do people hate? Because haters are gonna hate. That and people are idiots.

If you tell em you will take a 3 part game and break it into 1s they'll cry. If you tell them you will take a 1 part game and add 2 more parts they will cheer. People.... Meh. Don't like, don't care? Don't whine, don't buy,

I don't really think the physical drawbacks are that big of a deal, since you can always just download it again. I didn't have any issues with this system until now, when I'm unable to even connect to battle.net, which means that my copy won't work because it hasn't been authorized in the past 3 days or whatever. It should be a 1 time offline authorization, plus LAN play. Hopefully they reinstate the business with HotS.

Hah! You may not be a WoW player, but there was a point in the beta where Blizzard made it more difficult to level. People whined. Blizz subsequently added rest mode but upped the required XP to level, which did nothing except add the perception that it was once again easier to level. People cheered.

People are going to laugh at me for this but rather than playing the multiplayer, I really enjoyed the campaign. I can't wait till Heart of the Swarm just to see if Kerrigan is good or bad. So excited

That's nothing to be ashamed of... SC has an epic single player too.

i am so excited about this game....that im currently wetting myself...because of how epic this is going to be. I love the zerg, have since the original SC1 and honestly, i thought the ending to SC2 was fantastic! i cannot wait to play the second and finish up with the last. Blizzard is doing a great job with SC2 and i will shell out another 100 dollars (collectors edition only) for this game, simply because i have atleast 500 hours of play time in SC2 because i replay the campaign so many times and just sit online and que over and over again...even if i lose, i love the game....

The only thing i dont like hearing is the "RPG Mechanic" stuff....i dont want to hear that...keep it an RTS....stay away from RPG stuff, please. WC3 did an ok job with RPG style hero units, but SC is great how it is, no need for that....please....and keep it away from multiplayer.....god i hated that in WC3.....dislike hero units....no fun

otherwise, i look forward to the day i can preorder this, as i have 200 dollars set off to the side for both this version and the next....i must have the collectors editions....MUST HAS

From what I hear, the RPG mechanic is for the Campaign only, and it's because the story of the campaign is something like Kerrigan regaining her power and control over the Zerg broods.
