seems like this type of game wouldnt take as many years to make as others like crysis or metal gear solid 4 theyve been working on it for years...

Are you kidding me? Heroes are whack. They ruin the game. That's why Starcraft > Warcraft.

Warcraft is such a slow paced game compared to SC. Gameplay-wise SC is so much better and its insanely balanced. WC is always about leveling up your heroes, the average WC match lasts like 30+ minutes but you can end a SC match in 2. In SC its about builds, speed, control(micro), strategy, map control, scouting, placement, expansions, economy(macro), etc. Nowadays in competitive SC, the games been broken down so much that everyone has the timing down for everything. The game's constantly evolving and new strategies and builds are still being discovered to this day.

The only complaints I ever hear about SC are that its too hard, they can't control so many units, they can't multitask, etc. But, I can't blame people because the game IS hard once you start to play at a higher level.

That being said I don't care how long blizzard takes to make this game, its been 11 years since the release of SC. They just better not ruin it. SC is the pinnacle of RTS games and no other game has come close. No ones ever seen a RTS game taken this far before.

lol DotA. I was comparing SC to WC in general melee play. You realize DotA was based off a Starcraft UMS right? If it wasn't for SC, DotA wouldn't even be around, it was people making their own custom maps in SC editor that spawned those types of games. I don't even really consider DotA to be an RTS game. It feels like a SC UMS game to me, I can't believe people even play that competitively. I mean I like playing games like that sometimes too but I also like the playing the game the way it was originally meant to be played.

Pimpest plays in 2004 (the games been taken to another level since then):

^lol back then that shit was revolutionary. No ones really done that stuff before.


UC Berkeley gets a SC class. Taught by {SG}Yosh lol. I remember I used to watch replays of that dude vs Korean pros back in the early 2000s. Probably one of the best foreign Terran players and by foreign I mean non-Korean because Koreans dominate this game of course.

QFT!

This makes me want to go back and find my SC discs and BW. I'm pretty sure theres a strong fanbase still playing on Bnet.

I feel like none of you watched the mapmaker video I posted smh.

Anyway...fightlikehell, b.net is still going strong but only problem is that its MAD gimp since blizzcon. You'd get a message saying you've been disconnected from battle net every so often which pisses me off.
As for starcraft: ghost...if you DID watch the video I posted, sc2 will have a 3rd person shooting mode and guess what, you'll be controlling Nova. Even if it is scrapped I'm pretty sure the community will make some sort of starcraft:ghost map/game map crap, but nonetheless it looks amazing.

Ghost was scrapped altogether. They might include something similar in the game as a single player game.

My god you guys don't read previous posts do you? So much ignorance on this thread. Someone already said ghost was a scrapped project. /facepalm
Like I said in a previous post, they will include a 3rd person shooter with you controlling Nova, which will be a ums game. Though I don't know why I'm even re-typing this because I'm pretty sure nobody will read this.
