    Or in a channel lobby, or in the score screen.

    If you want to chat to someone and you aren't in one of those situations, the question becomes "why do you want to chat with them again?"

    No, other people can suggest people who are on their friends lists. If you want to play a few games with an acquaintance, you can just temporarily add them--I don't see the problem.

    I do know the restrictions, as was implied in the "you can only sit five at once" sentence right above what you quoted.

    --

    About "game mods", I meant "game modes" (yay misspelling).

    @DrPepper

    The majority of Starcraft 2 players, especially the ones that have played WC3 or SC1, dislike the same things that Mesk dislikes. They aren't really a minority. The minority is the people that think Mesk is wrong about everything, and are rather vocal about it.

    He was successful in terms of starcraft modding, as in, over 500 people downloaded his mod of a 12 year old game. Not successful like footman frenzy.

    Can you back that up, Jack? The majority of players don't seem to care enough to complain if they actually do dislike all those things like you would have us believe.

    And you can justify that it's laziness and not disagreement that is leading them to not comment?

    People hardly seem "lazy" to me given how much they are willing to whine.

    It was in an interview somewhere, I don't feel like looking for it.

    A Blue said that they like the small divisions, because it makes people feel more than just a number.

    The argument is that you don't wanna be #14,679 in a division. You would feel like crap.

    Brings up another point. Why the heck did they remove copper and add diamond? Isn't that the same as just renaming the previous four tiers?

    Especially bad because Platinum actually sounds cool, like an actual elite league.

    Diamond sounds retarded.

    @Purple while not every single person playing SC2 has voiced their opinion, there are numerous polls and topics like this where, overall, people have a negative view of the new bnet. This is like having a sampling of the SC2 population and running a survey on them. I don't know much about running correct statistical surveys but as far as I know, those who voice an opinion are representative of the majority, and compose a large part of the majority.

    Admittedly the players voicing their opinions that I've seen are mappers, modders, and skilled melee-ers, but I consider them to be the people whose opinion counts. Also, people at the bnet forums, who are often NOT skilled melee-ers, mappers, or modders, also have a negative view of bnet2.

    Not dumb at all.
    Many guys were actually confused whether copper or bronze is the higher league as these metals look quite similar.
    So it got changed. Not of a big deal, so what's your problem?

    Chat for clans and groups really sounds good enough for me.

    On a side note, I would bet you any amount of money that the vast majority of people complaining are all talk, no action. I'm betting that the vast majority of these people complaining will buy Starcraft 2, thus supporting Blizzard and its "cash cows". Kinda hard to put your money where your mouth is when you spend your free time whining on blogs expecting other people to fix your problems, eh?

    yes they would buy it but it's very silly to not add chat channels, you can talk, whisper, see other profiles etc.. I prefer to argue in beta where blizzard can directly see but such like Frank may prevent it frm happening

    But do you really want chat rooms?

    Gotta love new memes. There's 54 pages on bnet forums AT LEAST saying they want chat rooms.

    The problem with this is that a real poll goes out and asks random people, while these polls ask like-minded people on a forum where they would probably not be if they didn't hold that opinion (TL is a site designed to hate on everything that isn't Starcraft--their April Fools joke, while being a joke, is a parody of this (http://www.sc2promod.com/).

    Do you really want chat rooms?

    To be honest, if they add in group chat and clan chat ALONG with party chat I think that would effectively fulfill the same person. You could have a group called "My frendz!!1!" and then add people you meet in custom games to it so that you can chat or some shit. I'm just going to wait till release to see how well they do it. If you want to whine about the lack of features in a beta pre-release game, suit yourself.

    As for the other non-chat related features of b.net 2.0, it generally seems better, imo people are just making too big a deal out of it.

    Ok I just wanna say - Im done with this topic. I posted in THW, TeamLiquid, SC2 General Discussion, SC2 Beta Forums, SCIncgamers.. these issues, the whole yesterday passed in posting why bnet 2.0 needs these etc etc. A whole day wasted, I did post more than enough and I have exams..

    From here there are enough ppl to BASH Blizzard if you think only TL do it.. (check bnet forums and beta forums). Im done, no more wasting even 1 hr on such topic. Maybe an organized 'I won't buy SC2 with such bnet' with thousands of people will be an issue for the money they plan to earn. The message TO Blizzard is clear, give us chat channels, clans and proper ladder or enjoy another 1000 threads how Bnet 2.0 sux and also enoy people going back to Broodwar and war3 Bnet playing there..
