...ugh. This is what nerd rage does to you. It makes you type utter gibberish.
Basically, it's the whole "gameplay vs. story" debate. Sparing a rant, it's a debate I don't think needs to exist, because I think the two can co-exist quite easily. It's just that EA seems to be taking the franchise squarely into the realm of gameplay, after promising at announcement of Generals 2
that there'd be more of a focus on story this time. At least with Tiberium Alliances
(another MMORTS) it was established from the start that there'd be no story.
