Default Starcraft II Discussion and a Rant by Yours Truly

I believe this forum has taken a turn for the worse. Back when I joined in 2005 this place was much better. Despite the fact that we had no idea Starcraft II was coming out. If anything it made this forum more interesting. To use our imaginations to design whole worlds within the Starcraft universe. Now the only thing anyone ever talks about here is a slight change in design of one of the units. Oh how the mighty hath fallen. It's why I don't bother posting here anymore. Do you agree with me fellow people who have been here to long?

I've been here since before the crash but just lurked for a while after that before signing up again.

I see your points but you have to realize that before nobody had any idea of what sc2 would be. Imagination were running wild without restraint. Now that we have a solid understanding about what blizzard is trying to do with starcraft 2 we can't really talk about any far-fetched ideas anymore since they obviously aren't going to be implemented.

I agree with you though, but the changes to this forum can be directly pinned on this forum going from being a forum for a game that doesn't exist to one for a game that is nearing completion. Trust me when I say this though, it will explode when the game is released. All of the new story info and strategies to be discussed and debated will really liven this place up.

I agree... The real problem is that before SC2 became what we thought, our imaginations went wild.

But once Blizzard made it clear that it wants to make SC1.5 rather than a whole new genre of RTS, we became more critical of the smaller aspects to make it much tighter than SC1.

Except for me. :P

When the game comes out I'll be in here discussing strategy with you guys, but until then, these long-winded gameplay discussions of things that might/might not change bore the hell out of me.

I joined in '05 as well, and in some ways I agree, although in some I don't. I think many of the forum's older members have just become too busy to continue with speculation.

I have often wondered if I and others would continue with this forum once SC2 is released. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

I don't know. I'm for of a big lore discussion fan, and with the announcement of SC2, my imagination can still go wild =p

The inherent difference is that a fan community is going to react differently to a game that has yet to be announced and a game that has been announced and worked on for several years. The nature of our discussions on this forum are indicative of the stage of the game.

Back when the game had just been announced and new units were being added in and old ones were being hacked out, everyone made their own unit threads to showcase their ideas. Those have died out since the rosters have become more permanent.

Most of Blizzard's work now (that we know of anyway) is balancing macro-micro, and the ubiquitous graphical upgrades, so naturally that will be the bulk of our discussion topics.

When the game is released, everyone will be discussing strategy and balance. In a way our discussions mimic those of a dysfunctional design team. We're out of the concepting phase and into the nuts and bolts. The forum changes with the game.

Fully agreed. It is just natural that this forum has changed as the game is developed and it will continue to change as the game nears/hits beta. Believe me, when the beta testing begins, a whole new round of discussion will start up.

Joined in '05 I think (well before the crash anyway), rejoined July '06. Yes, discussions have gone downhill a bit, but that's because there's practically nothing to speculate about anymore.

Recent posts about game mechanics arent worth reading/responding to because it wont make a difference in the end. I will enjoy this forum MUCH more when SC2 is playable and we actually have something of worth to talk about

The question is "from starvation and freezing" or "old age". Tsktsk...
