Actually, it *is* a Facebook game to be technical.

That RealID system is more than likely the fruit of a massive deal between Blizzard and Facebook penned a while ago.

No, it's really not. Unless they snuck in playing ranked SC2 matches in your browser on facebook, it's not a facebook game. There may be connectivity features that you and I actively dislike, but there is nothing wrong or compromised about it's gameplay.

I fully expect to hear about some irritating achievement pushing to facebook feeds soon after release, but going as far as calling it a facebook game is a little much, imo.

I don't get the negativity towards SC2 either, to be honest. B.Net 2.0? Absolutely, it's really shabby right now. But SC2? Not liking the genre (base-building micro heavy RTS) is no reason to wish a dedicated PC game from one of the few dedicated PC devs left to fail, that's just asinine and short-sited.

They could have dumbed it down to the point of being a disgrace like Supreme Commander 2, and half the people trashing SC2 for being "more of the same" would be griping how Blizzard sold out to the casual WoW crowd instead of giving the hardcore fans what they want...
