Roughly 20,000 people attended World of Warcraft and Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty creator Blizzard Entertainment’s Blizzcon 2010 convention in Anaheim, Calif. A good number of them pulled out all stops to dress up as their favorite Blizzard game characters.

Blizzard cut content and corners to make Starcraft II good for professional gaming

Blizzard Entertainment, the creator of real-time strategy games like Warcraft and Starcraft, sacrificed a lot of potential improvements to Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty — including content and graphics — in order to make it viable as a “sport” for online gamers in the U.S. and globally, said Dustin Browder, Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty’s lead designer. Browder made the comments at the Blizzcon 2010 convention in Anaheim, Calif. today.
