It's the slave labor mentality, keep em in line, pay them poverty level
wages, and fire them if they step outta line. That’s why big companies
have great tech support, high turn over means they can treat em like
shit and still get top level results. It’s sad.

$50 bucks flat? Damn my customers pay me $150/hr for me to yell at them
(IT). I think you're getting a deal if it's just $50/flat to play a game
as much as you want and post your messed up opinions, annonymously.

It kindda is, the only reason EA/Blizzard do it so well is because they
have the money and the time and the resources. Gas Powered Games, last I
checked wasn't running a game where people pay $15/month with upwards of
10mil subscribers. If I had that kindda cash coming in, of course my
network would be the shit. GPG is probably of the mindset that if game
(works) then quit, else patch and quit.

NEVER! I hate RTSs, but I love anything Chris does, great guy.
Boycott, yeah good luck with that. Why not start an "Online petition" or
cross post on Usenet. That's really teaching the hard working guys at
GPG a lesson, right? Go back to your brooding Mr. Emo, or whatever they
call you kids now a days.
How can a game be considered [Milked] when it’s only been around a year
or so? Starcraft’s been going strong for decades now. You don’t think
that universe is a little played out? Damn I got the comic books and
stuffed Zergling in my office, that to me screams of lactation.

Only to you, buddy. And this is probably why.

Til when what? More suck? Joy, another RTS based on a 10 year old theme
with NOTHING new. (Because if they change anything Korea will Nuke all
the Blizzard offices)
*God has nothing to do with online gaming, or Blizzard for that matter.
*Everyone in online gaming is full of themselves, get used to it.
*Everyone has their own opinions, get used to it.
*People who monitor online gaming are not PAID ENOUGH, or in some cases
not PAID AT ALL to give a shit what you think, or to hold your hand with
some 20 year old “egotistical dickhead” kicks your ass from one side of
the planet to another.
So shut up, play your dumb ass game, or go out and get 3 friends and
beat them up in a LAN game!
egotistical, Mr. Kettle, I’d like you to meet Mr. Pot... (he’s black)
