I think you missed my point. I bought SC1 and had three races worth of single player content. SC2 came out with just one: Terran. And they have told us that we will be buying 2 more expansions just to get the story for the remaining two races.
SC1 had an expansion and it included story lines for all three races. Do you see why I don't like the way they are doing things now? Both SC1 AND its expansion both had all three races from the start.
And now they've set themselves up on a slippery slope with the battlechest options. Do players jump and buy at full price or just wait it out for the battlechest for a largely discounted price to get all three races campaigns? Guess which one I will be doing in the future? They will get a lot of people that have to have it at release. I, by choice, no longer fall into that category. Hell, I had SC1 the day it released - April 1st, 1998. I remember the release date because I had pre-ordered and I thought the guy was trying to pull one over on me when he called. I had the expansion for it the weekend it came out at the end if 98.
I don't understand where you think I inferred that add-ons were offensive. I have all the expansions for WC2, SC1, D2, WoW, etc. Perhaps my expectations for Blizzard are high based on how they've operated in the past?
