Thats what I said. The only people he think it is a fail are people who do not know what SC is about. They kept it true to the series and didn't make any flamboyant changes that would ruin it as an e-sport. The reason it was hyped so much is because there are tons of fans of the series that had been waiting over 10 years for a sequel. Just like Diablo 3

I never found SC2 to be a fail whatsoever. The campaign was done rather well and the multiplayer was pretty good as well (though I spent my time mainly on the campaign and doing comp stopping with friends in multiplayer). I'm fairly certain it was deem a critical success.

TO tell you the truth none of blizzards games have ever been a failure. Even WOW was fun and something new when it first came out. It just became tiresome and repetitive over time. As much as I dislike WOW now, I love it for that it gives blizzard crazy econ like 4-5 base econ. So now they have plenty of money to sink into all their other titles.

To call SC2 a failure is a joke. It's the only game where there is a monthly tournament wielding a 1st prize of 80,000 USD.

And there is no way D3 is going to be a failure either. The game is great. Super fun. They did an excellent job with all the systems, however I feel that I would have preferred a drop rune system to the current. Other then that everything is awesome, I can't wait to get past the SK and mash my mouse button.

A side note, being a sc2 junkie and playing several hours a day every day I cannot wait for d3's release. Starcraft 2 requires so much focus and brainpower mashing that mouse button in d3 and using only about 5 keyboard keys is a nice change of pace. No brainpower required there.

I also told enab this when arguing if SC2 was a fail or not!! Even if you don't like one or all of their games due to your preferences, none of them have ever been fail - either in quality of the game, or sales.
