    the game will most likely support 8 players. game reactor said that. though that would be excluding observers i believe. insults doesnt work on me.

    Game reactor is wrong..... It is outdated information...
    They are probably talking about melee maps.. Dont you get it?
    To be honest, i actually start to feel sorry for you, becouse you do not seem to understand a shit about what wer are trying to tell you.
    Dustin Browder is the game leader designer (If you have any freaking idea what that is), And he said that it will contain atleast 12 players when people asked how many players it will support.
    This is not something new, it was confirmed in january.
    If you do not agree with us, just email the blizzard support about it and ask them, they will probably give you an answer.
    12 Players is possible.
    16 Slots is avaible.
    It is probably 12 players and 4 observers, this is confirmed already, but it is not confirmed if all slots will be avaible for players.
    But it IS possible to make them all avaible for computers with hacking, so the game does support 16 players already, they just havent confirmed that it will officially be supported in the actual game without hacks.

    So.... Believe Blizzard (They created starcraft 2, they know what they are talking about), and not Game Reactor (They just gather information they find and write some stuff about it, maybe it is just outdated!).

    Your barely even giving info of why your right. Your really just messing with us. We don't care if insults don't work and you are just assuming what will be in the game. Why don't you post a link to were you found this info cause I bet it was edited or game reactor themselves said it has changed. Blizzard would never make sc2 worse than wc3 in players. Its either the same or more. And gamereactor takes info from blizzard and blizzard has updated their info(like they have with LTGH's proof), changing what the max amount of players will be.

    i dont believe that a single person decides how many players the game will support. blizzard decide a lot of things through testing.

    So the only way for you to believe the GAME CREATOR is if all of blizzard says its true? REALLY? Every time bill gates announces a new version of Windows, does ALL OF WINDOWS say its new features just to prove it right? Yea no shit they go through a lot of testing so if someone says what the max amount of players will be, do you really think he just felt like it? Obviously they went through testing. Think logically.

    my thoughts are based on logic. it is logical to believe game reactor.

    It is stupidity to believe outdated info, its is stupidity to ignore 90 percent of everyones comments in arguing, it is stupidity to not look at other people's prospectives, it is stupidity to not believe the game creator, it is stupidity to pick out random words from someones comments and comment as if that was there entire answer, and it is stupidity to not give proof of why you are right.

    starcraft 2 is created by multiple people. therefore there isnt a single sole creator.

    Actual logic requies a syllogism, deductive derivation, or at the least induction statistical evidence.

    Several posts have supplied expert testimony, as well as deductive derivation in support of prooving you wrong. You have repeated the same thing over and over citing very poor sources, such as gamereactor and wikipedia.

    The majority of the people posting in this thread should generally just ignore everything you've said, and continue with the discussion about the possibility of 16 players, because that's all I'm interested in.

    i just try to prepare you for the fact that the game may only support 8 players.

    And you are wrong due to maybe the last 2 pages of this thread filled with proof that it won't be max 8. Max 8 for melee. 12 for custom.

    You are blinded by your own logic man.

    12 players at the Least.

    The MAIN GUY in charge of SC2 said it!

    You should be happy about this instead of trying to look at the glass half empty and expect the worse.

    Blizzard has stated 16-18 team colors is what they plan on and that they plan on 12 players at the least. I believe there will be 16 players tops for custom games when its all said and done.

    I don't understand why you would think there would only be 6 players for melee games( 8 for custom) when the first SC1 had 8 for melee games. So, with that logic you must think that SC2 will be worse than SC1?

    Lol, geesh! Either your stubborn and don't like to admit your wrong or you just like to argue with people for the fun of it. Lol, later.

    I wouldn't get your hopes up for 16. Seems kinda too much. The game itself is a bit laggy on 4 players. 16 seems a bit over board so I believe that the max amount of players will range between 12 and 14.

    You realize that all of Blizzard isn't going to announce the player cap, right? It just doesn't work like that.

    I'm not, but I wouldn't be surprised if there are 16 players for custom games when its all said and done. Doesn't matter much to me though. I'd be happy if it was the same as WC3. I usually only play about 8-10 anyway at the max.

    I was quite aware he was a troll. Was pretty easy to detect. Just to make sure I linked him to some facts and since he petty much avoided them it was confirmed.

    my posts arent meant as trolling. they are meant as a warning.(that the game may support less players than you think.) i got my information from a reliable source.(game reactor.)
