Check this post on another forum: Link.

I somewhat agree with him. Even though SC2 is "TEH CH33Z3!!!," I think either they should bloody hurry up with it, or make it even more uberpwnage. Like, this whole "no new races" thing, that's pathetically lazy, even if they're going to jab it in in an Xpack or Ypack or Zpack--seriously, why did the first one have that many packs anyway? Oh right...

Uhm. No.

3 races is fucking hard to balance as it is.

Suit yourself...

Age of Empires III had eight. And while they weren't as distinctly different as the SC2 ones, they're still all different to play. I could list other examples, too, but I can't be bothered. Just... 4 or 5 races = mofun.

8 races that are the same with different numbers and a few special units.
vs.
3 races that posess many unique qualities and play radically different.


and Dustin Browder said they considered adding a 4th race, but the developers said they would rather put all the possible great ideas of a fourth race and invest them in the 3 initial ones.

Fair enough... but a fourth would be extremely cool.

Yes, four races would be very cool.

But they're kinda limited in their options.

Lorewise all that's left is the Xel'Naga, who are essentially demi-gods, and wouldn't work for many of the reasons bringing the burning legion into war3.

Unless they pulled a C&C and were like "be-tee-dubs there's a new races guys!"

In Age of Mythology you can build walls.

Why are there no walls in Starcraft?

This and many other extremely important questions plague my mind each day.

I do not know why there are no walls in starcraft, as I was not on the development team.

However it is worth noting:
-Walls are possible with certain buildings (eg. pylons/supply depots)
- Walls make for turtle-gameplay, which isn't really fun for anyone
- Starcraft doesn't have wide-open spaces that would accommodate walls

I find that turtle gameplay is quite enjoyable. As far as AoM is concerned, it means I don't have to worry about leaving troops at my bases and can simply Zerg Rush them.

EDIT:

Examples.

The zerg have invaded the past as well!?
All hope is lost.

Please excuse my generalization. I should have recognized that others might enjoy it.

edit*
ahh, classic pics

None of them are rushes though =p
too many "lings"

Good players don't need walls, and good players can destroy walls as if they were paper-mache.

Also: lol @ your C&C3 reference. Though I think that at least they did it as oppose to not doing it... and in a science fiction universe, there's absolutely no reason not to introduce more aliens.

What!? Nick is agreeing with me!?

Very Happy

I'm glad you enjoyed my C&C reference, especially because I"ve never played it.

It seems to me that you have an unfortunate form of cerebral palsy that causes your fingers to spasm over the keyboard while you type. Are you seeking treatment?

I think he probably has Parkinson's.

And autism.

I believe his malady is much more simple:

he is a troll.

that hides behind the mask of Colbert no less!

blasphemy!
