Just look at the original Starcraft ZF. I mean people were still playing that like crazy right up until Starcraft 2 came out.

I would agree. Back in college my friends and I did the LAN for original SC all the time.

Looking forward to actually being able to play this with out it tanking. New rig needs to hurry and get here. Liked what I've played of the SP so far though, as much as I hate the idea of having to pay full price for all 3 races. I do have to give them credit the single player portion seems to be fairly lengthy and well fleshed out. Haven't touched MP yet but I'd imagine most prolly still use the same ol rush tactics anyway. SC1 and BW for me was always more fun when a group of us teamed up against hard AI's.

Nope. That is one big controversy about the game.
