Call of Duty is Trying to be the Next Starcraft

GenGAME writes: "“Call of Duty eSports. Get used to saying it. I have.” That’s what Mike “Hastr0″ Rufail tweeted to his followers earlier this month. Rufail, like hundreds of Call of Duty shout casters, are excited to see where Call of Duty is going with the latest release: Black Ops 2.

"The cliche of “doubling down” could be applied non-sarcastically this time around as Black Ops 2 brings to the table some of the most innovative and game changing features to a mass market shorter to date. Read along as I pull apart the inner workings to see how Activision is attempting to establish yet another uber-competitive property and bring eSports to the next level–mainstream." (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Starcraft II, Wii U, Xbox 360)

To be the next Starcraft CoD would have to launch every 10 years with quality, instead of every year with none...

theres a reason Games as big as Starcraft, CS, League of Legends are so popular.

They focus on longevity and not yearly gameplay changes. Who seriously wants to relearn maps, fixed/broken/changed game mechanics every year

StarCraft has the advantage of being able to be constantly added to through user-made maps, massive balance patches, and so on. For console games, updated releases every year with new multiplayer content are the closest thing you're going to get.

Far from it

SC2 is THE definitive e-sport atm. Some mobas are better than COD
