Do you have any doubt that they will sunset the SC5 servers when the user threshold drops too low to effectively monetize the base through downloadable content?

None, it will shut down. To date I have personally not been effected one time by server shutdown, so I don't get worked up over something that hasn't hit me. But you might, so you have to do what you have to do. In a perfect world, they would run forever.

That's sort of how I feel. I don't like the concept of a game just becoming unplayable indefinitely, but in practice, aside from some MMOs they've never shut down a game I've been playing, nor have I fired up a game only to find the servers are no longer there.

I'm sure I own plenty of games with now-crippled functionality, but EA has chosen which ones to shut down pretty smartly because they haven't affected me yet.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.
