    I'm gonna have to say that there is no way Blizzard will allow this.



    They've already allowed it [MOD EDIT]. Understand the difference between a project like this and illegal projects which blatantly steal an IP.

    Blizzard is pretty annoying for a number of reasons at times, but defending themselves from theft of their IPs isn't one of them.
    Its a mod.  Completely different then what you are thinking.  Which is why Blizzard allows it because they allow mods.  Now they will never be able to sell or make any money off it.  Blizzard holds that key alone.
    That was my point.

    WOW! I really like it "so far"....
    I only played about 30 minutes, but liked what I saw.
    I now need to read more about the game.
    Although, I have never played ANY SC2 MODS, at least so far this game is filling a much needed NICHE.
    Why cannot Blizzard just make a Starcraft MMORPG instead of the silly Overwatch (shooter)?
    Regardless, maybe if enough people play this game Blizzard will get the hint.
    So far the game IMHO is like a combination of WoW, WS, and OW.
    I'm sure if it becomes popular enough they will start charging monthly for it and take it over.
    Are you onto something or just on something?

    Of course Blizzard doesn't mind this as you have to buy Starcraft2 before you can run this mod.


    Anything that increased their sales is A-OK

    IMO this is a mod not a game because it can't run without the base SC2 game



    Mods and Player made maps haven't needed you to buy Starcraft II for years. It was one of their big announcements a couple Blizzcons ago to support the modding community.

    Additionally (in response to another post), Blizzard almost always supports mods of their games. I believe there was one that comes to mind where the legal team got trigger happy, but Blizzard itself apologized and said it was okay.

    They even gave Armies of Azeroth a spotlight on their website as well as their facebook and twitter feed. Though when it comes to the Diablo community, they pretty much destroyed the mod scene there by making it be always connected to the internet.

    Also looking forward to the Diablo II remake; watched a few streams of that guy making it and it looks amazing.
    Due to frequent travel in my youth, English isn't something I consider my primary language (and thus I obtained quirky ways of writing).  German and French were always easier for me despite my family being U.S. citizens for over a century.  Spanish I learned as a requirement in school, Japanese and Korean I acquired for my youthful desire of anime and gaming (and also work now).  I only debate in English to help me work with it (and limit things).  In addition, I'm not smart enough to remain fluent in everything and typically need exposure to get in the groove of things again if I haven't heard it in a while.  If you understand Mandarin, I know a little, but it has actually been a challenge and could use some help.

    Also, I thoroughly enjoy debates and have accounts on over a dozen sites for this.  If you wish to engage in such, please put effort in a post and provide sources -- I will then do the same with what I already wrote (if I didn't) as well as with my responses to your own.  Expanding my information on a subject makes my stance either change or strengthen the next time I speak of it or write a thesis.  Allow me to thank you sincerely for your time.
