I'm not going to address any of your "points", but you just strike me as a rage filled gamer with excuses. I couldn't tell you how many times I've played people that talk shit after I beat them "terran is OP, too easy, you suck".BINGO! This is what I think is *really* funny about the people who play this game all the time. They act as though it's really, really difficult when it's not. Any little kid can 4 gate and any little kid can 3-4 rax proxy rush to pump out marines and marauders with stim and concussives. How is that skill?
I'd say that the only race that doesn't have the option to cheese is Zerg, and guess what: no one plays them. Why? Because they are the most underpowered race in the game and because they don't have any really good cheese tactics (6 pool is always lost since any Protoss or Terran playing a Zerg will wall-in).
So, acting like this game is developed for some "higher mind" and someone who wants an "easier" game shouldn't play it is absurd. I've played about 150 ladder games total and have a 60% win ratio when I get to actually play more than a 6 minute all-in game. In the past few weeks that I started casually playing again, I've had 3 regular games and probably 20 all-in rushes from Protoss or Terran opponents.
Like I said, if that's what this game has come to, then it's done...and it's time to play something that actually requires higher thought and talent to play.
Thanks for helping prove my point though, I appreciate it!
It's a balanced and skilled game, and huge for e-sports. period.
