More StarCraft II Sales Figures

With StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty sitting atop the UK multi-format sales charts, the first PC-only title to top that list so far this year, MCV points out that Blizzard's real-time strategy sequel has sold more copies in the UK in five days that the original StarCraft has sold over its 12-year lifespan. This is all the more impressive when knowing this is purely based on physical copies, and does not account for digital distribution.

This is offensively stupid and incorrect, CoH isn't dumbed down in the slightest. Territory control rewards strategic thought with tangible benefits while punishing the unthinking player. If anything CoH isn't as accessible as Starcraft in some respects. Both games are great examples of deceptively "simple" play with a sky limit on actual strategy on a per battle basis and that's the way it should be. If you want to talk about dumbed down RTS then there are a dozen better examples like Dawn of War II or even another Blizzard creation - Warcraft III.

If you want to defend your favorite RTS title then fine but don't attack the only decent RTS made in the better part of a decade to make your point. In the end both CoH and SC2 reward aggressive scouting and playstyle more than actual high level strategy in the first place.

Lowering the unit cap and clustering units into groups alone is an act designed to simply the gameplay. In no way am I insinuating that COH is easy to play, or a bad game, and I definitely agree with you there are better examples to use. So forgive me for not explaining myself. It was addressed to an idiot, using idiotic logic in reflection. Not much thought was put into it, and it wasn't meant to be taken seriously.
