  1. Re: What if SC1/BW was remade as DLC for SC2?

    I don't like the story of SC1 all that much, either. It feels extremely rushed and squanders its potential, IMO.

    I would've preferred something like the Fall of Tarsonis happening at the start,...

    Re: Yet another reboot thread

    I'm not invested in it either. My other ideas included the UED being involved from the start, using the Heroes of the Storm version of their history where they invaded to put down Koprulu's...

    Re: Starcraft reboot ideas discussion thread

    A critique I got of my proposal is that it isnít detailed enough and that this vagueness will lead to retcons down the line. The problem is that this is an intentional choice. I was told elsewhere...

    Re: Starcraft reboot ideas discussion thread

    If I want to be specific, then I would guesstimate that Koprulu sector is a cube with dimensions of 200 ly each. That gives an average of 32k stars within the sector.

    The Orion Arm sector(s) is...

    Re: Starcraft reboot ideas discussion thread

    The google doc I plugged addresses points like these.

    See, Kopulu system and Koprulu sector are now two different things (to resolve the contradictions between SC1 and SC2). The SC1 Tarsonis...

    Re: Starcraft reboot ideas discussion thread

    The idea I was going for was that the devastation of capital worlds like Tarsonis, the twist of episode 1 in canon, is what kicked off the status quo instead. Not all of the worlds, but sufficient to...

    Totally agree. Not just dark and gritty, but deep and analytical. There is literary value in that.

    The official story has a huge problem when it comes to giving proper respect to the ridiculously...

    Re: Brood War wasn't great, here's why, we deserve better, here's how

    There's no single way to answer that. There are countless different stories that one could tell to serve as an introduction to the setting.

    StarCraft: Insurrection is one example. It touches upon...

    Re: Brood War wasn't great, here's why, we deserve better, here's how

    I think there was a misunderstanding somewhere. I don't envision there being a main story campaign. Stories about individual planets, sure, but not about the entire sector. That's too huge to ever do...

    I'm not surprised at all. I expected that Blizz would want to branch into other genres at some point. I expected that any continuation would not resolve the story problems in the last installments....

    Re: How dead actually is Starcraft?

    It shouldn't happen at all. As I said, the zerg are not the formics or the rachni. Their whole shtick is that they eat everyone else in order to fuel their metamorphosis. It makes no sense for them...

    Re: Brood War wasn't great, here's why, we deserve better, here's how

    We both agree on this. Hell must have frozen over.

    Amon was added during a rewrite. Originally all the xel'naga were evil and created the zerg to destroy the protoss as revenge, or something along...

    Re: Brood War wasn't great, here's why, we deserve better, here's how

    The short answer is that there are two possible endings. A good ending where the terrans and protoss destroy all the zerg forever, and a bad ending where the zerg eat everyone then go on to eat other...

    The rip-off did start from scratch. It was a completely original universe. Remember?

    This thread we are discussing in right now is the one that recycled existing lore.

    Re: How dead actually is Starcraft?

    The only reason I was interested in the zerg was because they were villainous protagonists. Blizzard systematically ruined them. You donít seem to realize how damaging that is to my enjoyment.

    The Zerg are monstrous space bugs. Only a complete idiot, like Blizzard obviously, would want to turn them into bloody space hippies. That bloody ruins them. It would be like treating the Cthulhu...

    Blizzard is still making skins and co-op commanders. Fiction is still being licensed. SC does not currently seem to be dead, but it definitely is not their current focus.

    I am glad that we can agree the zerg are supposed to be monsters.

    Re: Brood War wasn't great, here's why, we deserve better, here's how

    Problems like these are the reason why I prefer to reboot the lore rather than rationalize it.

    Hence my preference to reboot the zerg as a swarm intelligence rather than a slave race. It is...
