    We all have gripes with the game, but it performs pretty flawlessly as a competitive RTS, and the campaign (although lacking in my opinion) was pretty damned polished.

    Yes I agree, the campaign is awesome and I didnt like the complaints about it. Bnet is the one needing more polish.

    I didnt have any complaints against the Campaign except it seemed kinda cliche in some areas.

    The Zeratul vs Kerrigan dialogue was extremely cliche, tbh. I wanna know how suddenly Kerrigan knows everything about the Xel'Naga, in SC1 I remember it was mainly the Protoss who knew about the Xel'Naga..

    There were some SC novels that took place between Brood War and WoL, I'm sure those would explain away some of the inconsistancies one would see having only played the games, you can probably attribute it to those.

    Im disapointed with many things, none of them about gameplay.

    1 - Whining about Terran being OP
    2 - Whining about Protoss being most played race
    3 - Whining about zerg being completely unplayable (yes, they are people like this)
    4 - People yelling "MAPHACK!" in every game when i spot reapers/stalkers/nydus worm/etc. getting in my base and dying before they can do any damage.
    5 - People who says this game sucks and command and conquer 3 is better 100x times.
    6 - People who thinks they know everything and keeps talking in my tactics
    7 - Allies that leave due to sync
    8 - Allies that leave due to being absolutely retarded
    9 - People who join games just because they want to know how to counter zerglings
    10 - People who are whining because Galaxy editor is harder then world editor and they cannot spamm fail maps now
    11 - People on SC II forum that are creating spam topics about how to make their pen0r not look like a mini sousage
    12 - People who keeps masturbating with picture of Kerrigan in their other hand
    13 - People that actually create threads like this


    Here you go, 13 problems (on page 13)

    In spite of being said that way, I agree. =P Warcraft III had so many and they were so varied.

    I'm currently very annoyed by the map browsing system. I keep seeing the same maps at the top. They don't change. Less played maps are not been given a chance to climb up and it takes ages for maps below the list to fill. It's a very bad system, in my opinion. Maps that are popular don't need to be brought to the top of the list because they're already popular and people will naturally search for them. At the very least, the list should not be organized by popularity by default.

    Relating the Narud discussion, did Dr.Narud ever shake hands and meet face to face with Raynor? I didn't know Duran had the ability to change his appearance, so I just assumed that the doctor speaking is not Narud, but someone else posing as him.

    As for Kerrigan's hair, it really depends on what the hair is. In humans, hair is a protein, not a cell, and as such, is the result of the expression of genetic code. Given that, there are three possibilities:
    • The hair is the result of Zerg cell genome expression, and with those cells destroyed, her regular hair might grow again and we'll have a beautiful Kerrigan in Heart of the Swarm (=D).
    • Her hair is a bizarre combination of human and Zerg cells which did not get destroyed by the relic's power.
    • The hair is a protein resultant from the expression of a human and Zerg hybrid cell immune to the artifact's power. If these cells did not suffer any damage, they'll continue to produce hair.
    It is not likely that her hair is made of Zerg cells, else it should have been destroyed by the artifact (a bald Kerrigan would have been extremely hilarious :xxd:).
    Either way, if it does not fall off, I want to see a scene of Kerrigan trying to brush her hair in Heart of the Swarm. :xxd:

    At the time, I was extremely frustrated. I've been working on model selection for creeps (this one wasn't so bad) and towers (this one took a long time). I probably posted that right after staring at available models for several hours.

    - The legacy map converter doesn't convert cliffs and water
    - Impossible to create custom campaigns
    - The whole custom models/textures thing is much more hard than WC3 to put in custom scenarios
    - Artanis voice sucks, it seems a young boy (at least in my language version, italian, much better in Brood War)

    Not sure if I posted my disappointment of the game - I have absolutely no complaint about the game but about the service operating with the game. It's this f***ing retarded battle net. And the newest retardness is:

    There where you see the bars:

    ||||||||||||||||||| Games (334)
    ||||||||||||| Wins (165)

    Couldnt they just type a player's Wins:Losses than having to calculate 334 - 165 and similar calculations... why cant they make a NORMAL bnet - click profile, you see Win, Losses % like old bnet, it's like they purposely made it less comfortable.

    I really dont understand what BlizzTarD are doing with this battle net. This battle net needs so much to be done and NO im not gonna reveal myself to the trolls at SC2 battle net forums just to raise these issues. If anyone wants to you're welcome.

    The bars help if you want to know your rough win percentage, and if you want to know your losses you can go check your ladder (as easy as clicking on the icon).

    But I want Battle Net non-idiot version 1.0 style, you type a /profile Name command, you see a player profile, no matter if you just played vs him or you never matched, you double click a name in a chat channel, you see his profile, you /stats, you see his wins/losses his profile must have wins/losses not some bar.

    I think seeing numbers like 60% gives a much better idea than seeing 2 bars and checking if the Wins bar is in the middle or a little past it,

    Plus I dont need to see my stats when they appear
    here
    [​IMG]

    but that of others.

    No, someone should tell Blizzard to stop doing nonsense and actually start doing a normal battle net. Now you can enter the forums only by using your main account, which im soo not gonna do. If I post in TL some of their staff would close it for thinking it's just an opinion. Blizzard look at TL. Im gonna do it.
