I really miss the way developers could whip up a game in three months back then. Especially a copy that could win more awards and sell over twice as many units as the game it “copied”.
Blizzard does nothing innovative, they just copy other devs, take longer to develop than most making the same game, and polish it. If it took a team 5 years to copy another RTS you would hope there'd be some polish. Blizzard and Valve imo are the two most overrated devs in the industry. If not the most they're both damn close.

I hope the rumors are true that Blizzard is either remastering Warcraft III or finally working on a sequel. I can't imagine they would leave that money on the table. Starcraft II does well for them, but obviously not good enough for them to put much time into it.

They put most of their effort into Diablo III, Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm while kinda limping along with new WoW expansions for the die-hard leftovers.

They are bringing Diablo 3 over to the Switch, apparently.

I can't argue with that. That IS their strategy. But what's wrong with that? I mean, I'm not really a blizzard fan outside of appreciating their level of quality. But I think there is something to be said for being the guys who take an already established ideas and craft it better than anyone. Dyson didn't invent vacuums or hand driers, but man are theirs cool.

Half-Life is one of the most overrated series of all time. And don't get me started on the retarded platforming sections in a shooter. Screw that noise...
