Answer as honestly as you can. If you havent thought about it before, now is a good time to think about how you feel about Starcraft.

Also, no matter how you answer, how many people own Starcraft or at least have the game somewhere in a form in which it could be played?

This is just a census. Im curious.

Haven't voted cause my answer isn't there :P

I've played, don't really like it, but it's alright. Haven't played it in years.

I used to have it but I gave it away to someone because I got sick of it (well the multiplayer at least).

Battle.net is composed almost totally of noobs who want to play these stupid maps where you have a spawnfest of units coming out of a bunker and you're supposed to 'win'. Basically a rush fest, you don't even get to enjoy the game.

Or the maps where you aren't actually limited by ore, because there are hundreds of Minerals on top of each other. Then it gets boring.

The single player isn't too bad however. If I were to play it again I'd probably only play it for the singleplayer. (Or multiplayer with people who actually wanted to make the game fun). And only certain missions at that. A lot of the missions are quite generic (escort <VIP> to a base and take over the base and then kill the AI with that base).

However, to me multiplayer is the most important aspect of a game, so I rate starcraft 0 out of 5 stars. It's a generic RTS that can get really boring after a while.

:op2: > Starcrap :D

Yea, SC Battle.net is incredibly gay.  I just don't play it because single is too easy against AI, and multi is just gay with all the noobs.   No strategy.   Just button mashers.

I remember those maps... they are alright the first few times.

Kinda reminds me of what's happening on BNet (I go through US West) with WC3... DotA (Defense of the Ancients) games galore. Now while I like DotA, it's a pretty amazing custom map, I hate it how there is almost no other games being played, custom or otherwise.

EotA (Eve of the Apocalypse) is a pretty awesome map too (better than DotA I think)

Anywayz.... :heh:

I thought Battle.net doesn't work for half the people who actually have WC3?

I did play WarCraft 2 a LOT!
But i never got around to playing Starcraft. My pc at that time wasn't fast enough. But absolutely loved Warcraft.. Zwobu !

As for starcraft now.. i do play some older games still (like OP2) but not this game. I've seen it played by someone else showing me what it was (just a minute or so, and i tried mission 1 but didn't like it all that much and it don't have it, nor did i ever try to get it).

So i voted < seen it, never played it >

I like it a lot. It was even better with the Brood War add on. It's AI might seem sucky now, but at the time it was pretty darn good. Quite a big step up from WC2 even.

And if all you ever did was play against the computer on Big Game, it did get predictable because certain AI triggers were never met on that map.

Anyhow, I really enjoyed WC 1, WC 2, and SC. Played hours and hours of WC2 and SC with my friends at school...

have starcraft, loved starcraft, but hated the butchering it recieved at the hands of multiplayer etiquette. Battle.net is full of young, immature players that care only about inflating their own ego, i'm one of those old school gamers that likes playing a game becuase it is just that, a game

when i played with freinds, it was fun because we didnt do any mainstream tactics, we came up with our own that worked the best

like when i played zerg= lots of managed hydralisks

then when i switched over to terran=  lots of manages goliaths in dropships  :)
i would love to play again sometime with people who play for fun

LOL they take it a bit to far Sirbomber.  Winning is every thing to them.  Not having fun just how many people they have owned compared to how many times they been owned.  Its there life essence.

And you should know by now I am rarely a optimist.

Winning is fun?  ;)

I like strange tactics, but I usually go with what I think will work the best. Nothing wrong with practicing a small set of effective attacks, as long as you can mix things up a bit from time to time. Particularly once you've lulled them into a false sense of security about what your next move will be.
