Maybe Blizzard tried to be too old-school with SC2. I didn't really like what they did with WC3 initially, but in retrospective, it was a pretty damn good idea of forcing you to make the best out of each of your units.

Given the Raiders' precarious situation in WoL, the RTS/RPG approach could have worked for the most part.

Diablo III's release should delay it. The developers are still working on getting the PvP arena in Diablo III

Hopefully they do come out with HoTS soon simplay because they spit on us by makeing us concentrait on the terrans the most boreing race in the game. i was excited for the game till i had to play terrans then i was pissed when i found out no zerg missions. and only a couple of protoss. at least the multiplayer allowed zerg even if there was no story mode or other kick !@# things we could do. i will admit breaking the game down was a bad $%^ idea. allows for detailed story telling. I only wish that they would have hit zerg first lol i would have ignored the rest of the games. =)

People would go NUTZ, honestly I kinda think it would be worth it just to see how pissed people got. Then again I am broke as hell this month, so I would be one of the truly pissed. :p

Yeah, from that update it sounds like they aren't even sure what units they want in multiplayer.

Once they choose the units, they have to balance them, which will take FOREVER (good news for the game when it does come out, bad news for those that want it now).

My guess (this guess is unsubstanciated by anything except my personal experience with following video game releaces, which doesn't include much), is that we won't see the beta for annother 6 months (at least), and the game won't be out 'till a few months after that. By that logic, I wouldn't look for a HotS releace date until December of 2012, at the earliest. Hopefully I'm completely wrong, and they're much further along than I think. ;)

Dang, was hopeing that HotS would come out for my B-day (late May), but with the D3 releace only a couple weeks before, the MoP beta, and the update relaeced last week, it would be pretty much impossible for that to come true...

I just hope they put out annother update in the near future (as in, once a month; or sooner).

It would be great if we got updated once a month on HOTS until the beta came out but I doubt we'll get another update for another couple of months.

Also as much as I want HOTS I doubt we'll be seeing it until around february 2013 just because Blizzard is cruel like that lol they'll just hold it in front of us for as long as they can and when we're at our most wanting for the game that's when it'll come out because that's when they'll make the most money.

The bad thing about it is they could totally hold off until 2013 just for the fact SC2 is an e-sport, so people won't stop playing it. Even if they did it wouldn't matter since there is no sub.

But still Blizz, come on.

HA! For all those who thought HOTS was coming out in april, I'm sorry to say, you are sadly mistaken. its not happening. its already the 19th, and no news is around. Diablo III isnt even out yet. I would say HotS is coming out sometime in August or september at the earliest.
