Aye, I'm actually really scared that they will. D2 was amazing and I have such high hopes for D3

3 games = badly split community. They did it with SC and diablo classic and expansion communities. 3 separate campaign games = 3 separate online communities. SC2 on battle.net is going to suck.

Would you say the same for L4D and all the other games that have had expansions? I dunno. I think it's worked out pretty well so far. As long as the expansion is cheaper than the original, I'm all for it. Bonus content FTW.

I thought L4D2 was going to be a rip off, as you can see in the L4D2 thread, but now that they've showed some of the content involved, I think that it's fully justifiable to release as a new game than an expansion.

i am pretty sure blizzard has all their games on different design teams now. Gone is the day of the whole team going from one game to another. This shouldnt affect D3 release. That being said, if they pull people from the d3 team to get SC2 done......forget the above :P

Look at the CS, DoD and CS:S/ DOD:S communities. They are split. L4D and L4D2 will be the same. I don't plan on buying L4D2.

I'm also much more interested in D3 than SC2. RTS games are too stressful to play cause you're battling other humans and your record is at stake. Diablo is much more forgiving and I can enjoy it more as entertainment than competition.
