Regarding the game changes , I find it disappointing that Blizzard decided to leave out the promotion of it's old game and only decide to hype up sc2 for thousand numerous times compared to Valve Dota 2 which the developer were much more considerate in leaving the game mechanics intact and only giving the game graphics a mere cosmetic changes .
Sc2 on the other hand is a total different game , the feel is so different , Macro mechanics and micro mechanics have been simplified with smart casting and mbs . No longer must players go back to their individual buildings to macro and with that comes a question . Shouldn't starcraft 2 be a game with much more faster pace action going around ? After all macro is out of the question micro should play a vital role right ?
Yes micro in sc2 is much more valued , when i first look at sc2 reapers were interesting units , almost made me remembered it as a unit type of vulture like in broodwar . Except that these harassing unit was short live and was killed from reaching the potential it has . Because Casual users can't stand the thought that a four of these units can wipe out the mineral line in a matter of a second and just run away when you are about to react to it .
You can't just develop a game and paste the label esport on it and draw the masses , You can't just ignored pro players feed back like Sen and respond like Dustin Bowder don't like sc2 play broodwar instead .I find it insulting that they have a developer like that who doesn't consider at all pro players feed back to the game . Sure you may have the game in popularity about few years . However I feel dota 2 right now is in a much more better direction than sc2 is taking right now . Not only does it appeal the casual fan base . At least the developer that is valve takes more consideration to players feed back compared to blizzaard.
It just saddens me that no matter how much I give sc2 a try , My mind refuses to acknowledge to me that these game is sc2 , Units voice in sc2 is not that clear like the one I had in broodwar. No longer do I have units that is able to defend a choke point till I have my reinforcement units to arrive at the location . I can't find my self turning me in to a sc2 fan even though proleague decides to switch sc2 .
Constant patching to the game doesn't give the game the chance to grow like it did in broodwar and that to me is already a nail to the coffin . With that I am finally able to lessen the burden I have in my heart on the matter of these topic . It's probably a one sided view from a bw fan and I may be criticised but it's the truth . Flashy games will be replaced by another flashy games and by another hype . The process goes full circle and it not really impressive to me .
