    Re: Anybody still here?

    I imagine that the combination of ending support and the various controversies contributed to that. Iíve never been interested in MP tho

    Re: Anybody still here?

    Blizzís mismanagement neatly destroyed everything that I saw was good. Just like every other franchise I ever bothered to invest in. Star Wars, Star Trek, Alien, He-Man, Starship Troopers, Lord of...

    Tell me how you feel after Blizz writes new lore that retroactively ruins what you liked about SC2. If the SC IP isnít already dead, then thatís what theyíre inevitably going to do with it. Just as...

    To be honest, I donít think that anything Blizz crapped out could have lived up to the stories we imagined in our heads.

    Re: How are you handling quarantine?

    I have been stuck in my house since Feb 2020. Thankfully I can work from home so Iím not unemployed. Iíve gotten used to it, I guess. I didnít really leave the house except to commute to work anyway.

    Re: 3D version of the unit reference pictures

    You should get into contact with the Amber, Immortal, Liquidation, Edge of Chaos, etc devs. Iím sure they could use another modeler.

    Re: SC2 now officially on life support

    Looking back with hindsight, the Starcraft campaigns are... repetitive.

    Ep1: Raynor rebels, gets betrayed
    Ep2: Kerry hunts down her enemies
    Ep3: Artanis fights extinction
    Ep4: Artanis fights...

    Tura, the reason I like the zerg is because they tried to make the devouring swarm trope somewhat more interesting to read about by anthropomorphizing them enough to make them vaguely sympathetic and...

    Has anybody here played Sid Meierís Alpha Centauri?

    The ideologies in that still set standards for today.

    Re: SC2 now officially on life support

    I know franchises are prone to bad writing.

    The new She-Ra show is terrible.

    The key difference is that people actually criticize She-Ra.

    Horde Prime is an even more shallow and poorly...

    The problem is exactly that Starcraft was not intended to be a franchise. The sides didnít get any foundation or ideology, but instead the charactersí personal desires and vendettas carried the...

    Yep.

    The manual included short bios for six factions for each race. (Modeled after the Alliance nation and Horde clan bios in WC2 manual.) Did this ever play a role in the games? Nope!

    I agree to an extent. I donít like the way Mengsk was centered in the terran lore and prefer an actual confederation like they described on the 1996 website.

    Why should that make a difference? Nothing short of a reboot is going to fix the problems with the writing. Any SC3 or FPS spin-off will be a soft reboot anyway given Blizzardís disregard for...
