OP  10/08/13 8:12:30 PM#1

Starcraft Universe began as a fan mod using the Starcraft 2 builder tools. After a successful KickStarter campaign, however, SCU aspires to be something more. More like an MORPG answering to the number 7. Want to know the reason behind that cryptic answer? Read our Russian Correspondent Shelassa's exclusive interview and then head to the comments.

MMORPG.com: Are the events in SCU a 'dream' that can lead to anything happening or is it an alternative universe with ties to the original game, timeline and character?

Ryan Winzen: Answering this question could give away our entire story! The answer is seven.

 I backed this project since I am a fan of the SC Universe. It is nice to play games where devs are honestly passionate about the game that they make. Now if Blizzard can actually make a World of Starcraft now.... :)

"Blizzard gave him their blessing" 

 

What's going on here? My prevailing thought throughout this article and video, is that Blizzard is covertly crowd funding a new game.

 

I'm not saying I'm right, or even know what I'm talking about. Idk I'm just not use to billion dollar companies giving blessing to use IP. 

 

Of course I love the idea of a SC mmorpg or even a morpg. This did look kinda strange, but I'm always open for good new ideas. I will be watching for more details.

 

edit- whoever feel free to correct my assumption.

Who did wrong? The advertiser hired to sell the game or the consumer who put faith in advertising?

Does that make this less attractive somehow?

Sounds great and the non existing " massive " part doesn't bother me at all.

I think the "blessing" came in the form of Blizzard acknowledging that it was OK to use the tools to fundamentally change the game from an RTS to an RPG and to run a KickStarter to be paid for it. After all, you still have to have the core SC2 game to play the "mod".

Look what happened with DOTA though. They gave their blessing for that, then lost the rights to make part II.  So I have to wonder if there's more too this blessing this time or are they just ok with this happening again ?

Now this is a TC if i ever saw one. =)

 

Good to see that it is doing well and that Blizzard still understand the market well enough to not shut it down.

I only hope they blessing is in a print, if for some reason this game pick like to be huge blizzard will start to sue for part of profits or closure.

FOR HONOR, FOR FREEDOM.... and for some money.

7?   42 is a far more satisfying answer.

Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.

No, you don't need to own Starcraft 2 to have this, from the Kickstarter page:

 

"If you don't own StarCraft II, you will need to download a FREE copy of the StarCraft II: Starter Edition here. Since the file size is very big, downloading may be paused and resumed at your own discretion."

.....

"We must emphasize that all acts and expansions of SCU will be completely FREE to play through the StarCraft II: Starter Edition. You don't need to buy StarCraft II to play!"

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

Yea it is.  While I didn't back it but that is because I don't back anything, I am hopeful for their continued success.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

It does make it less attractive because of one very important reason: Should this game gain traction, that "blessing" will evaporate, and that's the end of the game. Either that, or Blizzard will hijack it and ruin it, putting in "space pandas" and improbable storyline twists and turns. I do like the look of it though. Let's just hope the "blessing" doesn't go the way of the dinosaur when this thing turns out to be awesome.

Why are we all assuming Blizzard will do this? the back lash and bad PR would be massive, just wouldn't make sense for Blizzard to ban or take control of this MOD in the future, they're too busy with the SC2 xpac, Titan, Hearthstone, Blizzard all-stars and the D3 xpac. 

I was wrong about needing the full version of SC2 but players will still need to install the Bnet launcher and ultimately be sucked into the Bnet Ecosystem and the world of Blizzard games.

This is exactly the reason why they shut one eye and let it happen.

In the end it´s good for their bottom line, as it means more SC2 Box sales. Win Win.
