Chris Metzen has probably ruined another Blizzard franchise with his awful story direction. He's already destroyed the D3 story line and has really demolished WarCraft as well, might as well kill another.

Well StarCraft II was very good, so there's a bit of hope for this one. Still, after getting burned with Diablo III, i'm not going to fall again for the hype anymore. I will wait until reviews come.

I think it is a better idea to have a larger beta.

You want ALL users to be able to look for bugs not those who are buying the game one way or the other.

They may just be looking for an early access as opposed to a bug hunt.

steam sales + other sales are going on now, I doubt people would bother paying full price on a expansion game that is not masterpiece. For that kind of money u could probably buy the entire pack of some franchise in steam now lol

@Vorador2
It's just an expansion, not to be mistaken for say... Starcraft III. It's still Starcraft II. Blizz has just added some new units to the online ladder, done a few other tweeks/polishing and will release the Zerg campaign.

In about 2 years there will a 3rd expansion, Legacy of the Void(Protoss).

Yeah, Starcraft II are three parts, HotS is more like Starcraft II Revision 2.0, there is a lot of rebalancing between the three races that really change the game, also there are new units and spells

Not sure where you got your information about Amazon, but I pre-ordered from them about three weeks ago and got a beta key.

I've been playing Blizzard games since Warcraft 2 days and I have yet to encounter issues with customer service. Yes, at times they aren't responding overly quick, but they sure as hell do everything you ask of them that's within TOS. I had my B.net account hacked and e-mail changed about 2,5 years ago and all I had to do to get my WoW account back on my newly made B.net account was sending them a scan of my ID. They even restored my gold and professions which were changed from engineering/enchanting to mining/herbalism. Also, I recently requested secret answer change and they've done it with no hesitation. If you have problems with their customer service, you're most probably asking something unreasonable and outside of TOS. Also, they patch their games for years, just look at Diablo 2 for instance. Only other company who does this is Valve.

[citation][nom]DXRick[/nom]Isn't 2.6 years a bit long in the PC gaming universe for an expansion?[/citation]
Not when it's an e-sport, and way more successful than Brood War was which has been played for over 10 years professionally to top it off. There are 40+ major tournaments each year on top of the dozen of seasons of various leagues along with it. Changing game on a more rapid pace would destroy the e-sport component of the game.

After what they did with D3 I am not holding anymore hope for there games. Making D3 single player online only did it for me. I will see what others have to say after it is out but I killed my pre-order awhile back.
