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

    Uh huh. I just got the impression that Blizzard was making things up as they went along without a care in the world. The SC1 manual's version of events where the Overmind is the big bad evil guy...

    They told me that they know it doesn't make sense and they don't care. They like arguing over trivial minutiae.

    Did you even read the part where I said it makes about as much sense as a tangent on the history of Vitamin C and scurvy?

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

    Indeed? I had a similar idea for all of questionable plot points in canon starting from SC1 onward. I asked around on the SCLore discord, and they told me to give up.

    It's a technobabble explanation for things that the writer used in a throwaway line. There's zero reason to explore its metaphysical relevance, entire history of discovery, or whatever. That's like...

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

    If we're going to think about this reasonably, then there's no compelling reason why Cerberus zerg couldn't have existed during or even prior to the first war.

    Heck, I can't think of any reason...
  8. Opened a discord for discussing alternate continuities

    The current Starcraft discords didn't have dedicated channels for these sorts of topics, so I opened one. By popular request, it has dedicated channels for discussing alternate sequels to Brood War,...

    Enslaved, lobotomized and cyborg zerg have been around for years in the lore before Annihilation was written.

    Unlikely. Blizzard probably forgot about it like they did all the other stuff they forgot about. There is no shortage of lore bits that appear once and never get referenced again despite having...

    I never said I minded the Cerberus skins, nor the idea of enslavement with technology. Indeed, I think they are appropriate for campaigns set during the first war.

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    It's an exotic space drug with mutagenic effects on living things, and isn't the first such drug to appear in the lore (jorium is another). We don't need to know more than that.

    Metzen destroyed their agency very early on when he decided to rewrite them from a gestalt consciousness managing logistics to an easily subverted master/slave dynamic with plot device powers.

    You are deflecting criticism. Rationality is a key foundation of meaningful conflict. The conflict in SC does not stand up to scrutiny because it operates on Metzen's author fiat rather than an...

    The situation is contrived from the start because Metzen arbitrarily wrote the zerg as a plot device, arbitrarily gave Kerry control over the zerg, and ignored that any free-willed people existed in...

    Recycling all the factions, like Confederacy, Dominion, UED, Ihanrii, Protoss Empire, etc to coexist is hardly smashing everything. Sometimes a reboot can be a good thing for an IP, particularly if...

    The messiness of the canon lore is the reason why I prefer to devise an alternate universe where I may clean things up to make a modicum of sense and remain consistent.

    Now that you mention it, the flame color in SC2 depends on the playerís team color. In the fluff, that seemingly correlates with the characterís eye color. Khalai burst into blue flames, Taldarim...
