Thread: New "Story" Forum on SC2 Battle.net

  1. #1

    Default New "Story" Forum on SC2 Battle.net

    http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/1324400/

    Quote from Blizzard - http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/topic/1204770715#7

    "The Story forum is new and is meant to be a great way for everyone to discuss the story surrounding the StarCraft universe. The Creative Development department has been hands on (with providing content for discussions and answering questions via posts we provide) within the World of Warcraft forums and also has a few things up their sleeves here too off and on.

    They will be reading to see what sorts of things are most interesting to you or just to find out what you have questions about. But, this forum is more for all of you to discuss these ideas and concepts with each other."

    I wonder whether the writers will take the time to respond more on this forum than they have (or have not) on the WOL Story forum...

    Oooh, sounds awesome. Feedback from writers themselves?

    Wow, a forum dedicated entirely to bitching about a hollow shell of a plot. Never thought I'd see the day.

    It remains to be seen how much actual writers' feedback will be there, but at least the claim of intention is there...better than nothing, I think.

    Speaking of the writers, does anyone have any information (old interviews, etc) as to whether they played any of the famous Campaign Creations campaigns and what they feel about them? -

    Why am I asking this? Well, CC guys wrote great plots for their campaigns and it would be nice to know that the writers have taken note - if not for their own inspiration, then just out of the alleged passion for the game/lore (and not just for paycheck so to speak).

    I don't think the level of discusion will ever reach actual serious themes though.

    Edit: Yea its full of trolls...

    The SC2 story has no themes, its just a jumbled mess of nerd mayo.

    Agreed Demo.

    It's also a cheap (and exploitative) way to have the fans write a decent plot/story for the next games, and at the same time, supplement the lack of writing talent and foresight of the Blizzard SC2 plot team.

    I agree with you guys, but for once this forum is quite new, and Blizzard might be watching over it. It's just an opportunity to run some sence into the head of the writters.
