SC2 was fun if you liked RTS games and has a large online community.

I've played, and loved, RTS games since Dune 2.

SC2 could have been pumped out in less than 2 years by a competent studio, given how much of the game was redundant. It's an average RTS, bringing absolutely nothing new to the table, and not even refining what it *did* bring to the table beyond a moderate graphics overhaul.

Considering that the "expansion" will hit 2 years of dev time next month, to add new SP missions and like 6 units. In reality, I suspect a holiday 2012 release, if not a 2013 release, because Blizzard has no idea how to work with alacrity any more.

And finally, "polishing and balancing" the game is bullshit. We all know in the first week or two everything will be nerfed/overhauled/changed anyway. Open up a public beta on a few different maps for a week and record everything about those games and then use that to balance shit. Spending more than a few months in private testing for "balance" purposes is bullshit and idiotic these days. It's fine for bugging, terrible for balancing.
