Best Real Time Strategy Games 2017
"Hell, it's about time"

13. Starcraft 2

StarCraft 2 has had a rough year in the pro-circuits but doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon.

What is it? StarCraft 2 is the Juggernaut RTS by acclaimed developer Blizzard entertainment. An unofficial national sport in Korea, StarCraft 2 has been top dog in E-sports for a long time. 2016 was not a stellar year, professionally, for StarCraft 2 however. Two major teams in Korea shut down, one of the longest running pro leagues in that country ended its run and a high profile match fixing scandal left a large stain on the Pro scene. That being said, Blizzard doesn’t look too deterred by this chain of events. With the successful launch of the conclusion to the StarCraft 2 Trilogy at the tail end of 2015, Blizzard introduced more ways to play including a co-op multiplayer mode where players take on the role of “Commanders” like Nova and Stukov of Brood War fame. Despite some E-sport setbacks, 2017 is looking to be another stellar year for the massively popular micro/macro base builder.

When can I play it? Right now. Even though the trilogy is now complete, Blizzard has released an episodic campaign following Nova, the Ghost who would have been the main character of the canceled 3rd person Stealth-action game. Blizzard also maintains constant balance updates for the multiplayer side of the game.
