Maybe you remember me, maybe you do not, but as an update as to where I am at in my forum writings I am about to drive the nail home on completing a solid case against sexism with this company, particularly with it’s root classic Diablo 2 as I have identified a severely strong and undeniable implication that an absolutely progressively sexist seed has always been part of that game’s structure due to both what that structure implies alone and also by the implication of its incompleteness which begs an honest concern to question what kind of influence to our lives and communities has occurred all the way up to this day.
With that said, most of what is going to be talked about is how Blizzard has been totally neglecting the best interest for the Consumer even from just a decent business stand point with the Classics and Modern day games, but when and how it’s also been a moral/ethical catastrophe that’s slowly and strongly being uncovered, it really is starting to show what the aim of this company has been all along… Down the Toilet.
I was showing just how possible an expansion to Diablo 2 really was, but even with the modern day revisions of the classics such as with Diablo 3 we received a game that was from my perception more bland(or more simplistic), but where the interest of the consumer was neglected was in the (remember this)“benefit of the bloat”. That’s right, we didn’t receive the amount of content that we rightfully could and should have in both the classic and modern Starcraft and Diablo titles. The changed design philosophy in to a simpler one for both titles should have opened up ground for more Diablo characters and yes a 4th race in Starcraft and I am itching to tell you about how the 4th Starcraft race is very possible and perhaps most particularly, maybe even unfortunately, in Starcraft 2 which I as many others continue assert that falls short with out a real and legitimate swarm.
Just look at how pitiful the overall situation really is here. Both the classic and modern games are inexcusably falling short on content and when it starts to unfold that the classic games have even fallen short it truly becomes both insulting and disgusting for the loyal fans to this Company, but that’s just it… It’s like the message in both the actions and inactions of this company over the years SCREAMS “we do not want loyal fans”. I truly wonder what the business advantage is in that. Enlighten me on what’s wrong with the people and their minds here exactly…
So let’s just get right in to an honest attempt to consider a 4th race in the Starcraft Universe. In order to properly wrap one’s mind around a legitimate consideration you have to first position where the extremes stand. The extremes are Protoss and Zerg. Protoss represents the tank, and Zerg represents the cannon. If you have any understanding about the positional trinity, the role of the Flanker is next and that it’s very possible to consider 2 opposing Flankers in terms of their differential. And because the races are as different as they are, this means that Terran will take its own corner of a triangle rather then being placed on a line between Protoss and Zerg. And as Terran takes that corner it fully implies the potential for the opposing flanker in a square shape.
This is where the concept of say “The Dark Terran” is born and as proper as that concept is, it’s definitely is not implied that that is what the race should specifically be by any means. It just self evidently shows us how real of a start we have to spark some interest and excitement. At this point though, the archetype of the Borg enters the consideration hard but you have to be careful with how easy it is to enter in to Zerg territory on this note. In past universes such as in Startrek, the Borg submitted to a Hive Mind and one considers how easy it would be for insect structures to enter in to the picture. We would need a re-envisioning of the borg and being a structure that is opposingly inverse to terran is legitimate.
How about Anatomechs? Anatomy = the study of living structures, Mech = Machines. When you think of Borg and a half human half machine infantry type of unit immediately enters your mind you are right on target. The issue is that you don’t want an infantry unit to be on tier 1 comparable to Terran, otherwise you start entering in to Warcraft territory such as with footman and grunts for example. No if there is Borg Infantry like Structure then it ought to be tier 2. Unit sizes must differentiate but that would be up for debate. Aside from a line being drawn down the middle of the race in terms of infantry and anatomech “animal inspired machines”(stark difference from machine inspired animals) another line also should be considered which makes the race lean more towards tools and devices as part of its very nature, perhaps even opposed to the nature of its basic attacks. To me that just screams interesting but even the necessary blending of the tools and devices with animal/creature like machines screams character too. Imagine an ostrich like machine running around laying detonatable bombs and in the manner inspired from this egg layer. I suppose a good question would be, would the Borgs be able to ride these mechs?
But there you have it… the self evident proof of the possibility of a 4th race and that possibility should have been much more looked into considering the simpler direction that Starcraft went in to, but it wasn’t. Why does this all seem to tell me that this is a superiority complex with the people of this company? Or even a vengeful/hateful endeavor? There’s only one word that ultimately comes to mind here every time. Shame.
