...That's even worse and proves what a shameless money grab it is. Now I'm being forced to buy all 3 versions to avoid the power creep! Awesome!
As noted, you apparently think that every single game that Blizzard has ever produced is a horrific money grab. As well as a large amount of PC games produced by other companies. PEOPLE LIKE EXPANSIONS. It, well, expands
the game experience, and when you already enjoy the game, that's a good thing. I mean, seriously, if you think expansions are just shitty money grabs, then why the fuck are you in this thread? Why the fuck are you playing Blizzard games? You admit to playing WC, and probably play SC (maybe D1/D2 as well). Seriously, what the fuck?
By the way, who in the world actually plays blizzard single player? I haven't since WC 1 and that's because I didn't have internet.
And you wonder why you don't know anyone who plays single player... When your entire sample group is people who are already playing online. I don't play online. Never have. It'll be a long time before I will. I have similar experiences as ST and Jebobek, where the few times I've actually tried, it's been an absolutely shitty experience with shitty people who act shitty. I play single player, and I play multi with friends. That's it. And people like me represent a very large fraction of the player base.
I do understand Blizzard's perspective though - why make money when you can make more money? Most people who would've bought the complete version will still buy all three.
Again, you show a complete lack of understanding. If Blizz had released a single game with 10 or so missions for each race, I would have bought it. I would also have then bought the one or two expansions with a similar amount of content. We would have ended up with roughly 30 missions per race, total, but spread out over several games. Instead, they're doing the exact same thing, except one race at a time. Instead of a whole game being 30 missions split between 3 races, you'll have 30 missions for a single race. At the end, you have 90 missions either way.
