sc2's success has only brood war legacy to thank, the only reason west has exploded with sc2 is the fact that you had these mythical players in korea, being gods among men and everyone caught on to that and waited for the next iteration of sc to come and make it happen everywhere else.
and do you not understand that 90% people that bought starcraft2 DO NOT CARE ABOUT ASPECT OF MACRO, MICRO, BUILD ORDERS, ETC?
sorry I am not so much into rts and fighting games, so I don't really know the titles
man since street fighter ii back in 1993 or something nothing changed, there is just some graphical draw over and that's it ...
so you wanna tell me that since 10 years plus the other companies are not able to suceed their game design? This is just beyond ridiculous, sorry
I don't really know about community features though,
tdm is terrible for pubs.
