The only people still eating that lie are the retarded fanboys that only started playing SC a year or two ago and have no idea what the truth is. Just ignore the 12 year old kids.

Maggot ridden corpses.
Mountains of skulls.
These are some of my favorite things.

I don't think I've ever heard anyone claim GW stole ideas from Blizzard.

It's pretty clear where GW got its inspiration from, I reckon.

oh people love Blizzard is all, I just ignore them. They made the same accusations when Warhammer Online was released just saying they stole the game from wow. As if WoW somehow invented MMOs and the fantasy genre. Not to mention the warhammer universe was started well before Blizzard's warcraft. Just a bunch of fanboys that don't know what they are talking about.

According to gamer myth, Warcraft was originally supposed to be a commission by GW for Blizzard to make a game about Empire vs. Orcs. For some reason, this didn't work out, so Blizz ran with their game and thus Warcraft was born.

If you believe the myth, anyway.

Starcrafts units have always made themselves on ripping off other things. Repeat click on a majority of the Terran units and guess the film line.

Starcraft is the rip off of Warhammer 40k + schi-fi movies galore, just like the warcraft universe was a rip off of warhammer.

Note: that 40k has been out for over 10 years, starcraft, has not. 40k's inpsiration is a baseline futuristic verwsion of WHFB built with a bit of change to backgrounds and the race models being built in unique ways.

can you deny that the battleship isnt from BFG? or that the terran marine isnt a space marine? hell they are still doing it with SC2, look at one of the new models, it looks like a jump pack marine even more!

Dont get me wrong, I do like how blizzard made starcraft, it is, to date, still one of the better RTS's I enjoy. But I have never thought of blizzard as having any sort of imagination.

the key to every good DE army makeup. Always have a backup plan, try to take everything in multiples, and use everything you can to your advantage, being a sneaky bastard within the rules, as it were.

Warhammer and Warhammer 40K have been out for around 20+ years brother.

You can't shake the Devil's hand and say you were only kidding!!!
