Hey, guess what. My opinions are facts now too because i say so.

Some funny stuff here though, especially about the invisible units. God damn banshees are so annoying!


Some true points, some pretty generalized ones. Atm there's enough bitching going on about Sc2 balance with P > T > Z > P or something.


It's not an opinion, I saw them from a website.

For facts I meant "chuck norris" type ones


A lot of true points, at least from my experience.


fact: war3 is better game overall and more fun and more spirit and better progaming scene

The only thing that War3 > SC in progaming is diversity given that Korean / European / Chinese players are equally skilled to make the tournaments dynamic, whilst koreans dominate most tournaments.

It's because war3 is easier to learn and starcraft is harder to learn. Stronger esports community -> better SC players.


Nice facts :)
