I don't care about the multi-player, I want to see how Jim Raynor saves the galaxy.

Not to mention the story behind the game, one of the best stories ever (you are somehow free of accusations on this point since it's only a multiplayer beta).
To sum it up - you're obviously not a RTS player therefore this article has no value whatsoever.

To wait 10 years for a sequel is just plain dumb, for Blizzard to wait 10 years to come back to an old game and give it the no. 2 moniker only says to me that they must be out of any really original ideas.

And playing the first game doesn't suddenly qualify or validate someone's opinion. You might not have played all the Hitman games, for example, but I'd still give consideration to your point of view if you said that Hitman: Contracts was rubbish.
You're obviously a hardcore SC fan and I'm obviously not - but that doesn't mean my opinion is wholly and objectively meritless. That's just moronic.

Incorrect. SupCom shows this up as the ancient rehash it is.
It's not even finished or out yet....
