It's funny as my opinion of Starcraft 2 is quite different from Frogboys.
All that money and they could'nt even include basic chat rooms ?
Starcraft 2 multiplayer is a lonley place , because of that I never play.
The old bnet (think warcraft 3 style), I would login, hang out , chat with strangers make new friends. Somtimes not even play. and somtimes I would play for hours.
It's this wanna be like xbox live and and/or facebook friends crap that I ca'nt stand.
The only way to meet new players is to do it in game and when I'm playing , I'm not chatting.
It would have been almost efforless to put basic chat in ( at least tech wise).
Ahh well...at least they are planning on putting it in now. Waiting till then to play.
