Pro

Before I begin...

• The debate will not follow a particular format of debate (i.e. Lincoln-Douglas, Policy, etc.) Instead, it will be as following:

Round 1:
Aff - Offer rules & definitions for this debate.
Neg - Simply accept the challenge, and say something along the lines of, "I accept this debate."

Round 2:
Aff - Arguments/Case presented.
Neg - Arguments/Case presented, then Rebuttal of Aff's case (the order is interchangeable)

Round 3:
Aff - Rebuttal/Summary/Voting Issues
Neg - Rebuttal/Summary/Voting Issues

• I implore the Neg. to NOT incite a battle of semantics! :)

DEFINITIONS:

• StarCraft - A RTS computer game developed by Blizzard based on military science fiction; first released in 1998. In this debate, "StarCraft" will denote the FIRST installment of the anthology, NOT StarCraft II.
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org...

• Best - Surpassing all others in [...] quality; most excellent
Source: http://www.thefreedictionary.com...

• RTS - Abbreviation for real-time strategy, where the participants position and maneuver units and structures under their control to secure areas of the map and/or destroy their opponents' assets. This excludes all FPS (first-person shooters) games.
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org...

• Computer game - Any game that can be played on the computer.

• Available as of now - Available to the public as of November, 2010.

In advance, I wish luck to my opponent. Let us engage ourselves in a fun and enlightening debate!

Con

Since my opponent forfeited, I cannot refute any arguments of his, but I will make some of my own.
Warcraft III is the best RTS game.

Warcraft III won the Game of the Year in 2003.

Warcraft III has DoTa, which many Chinese, Filipino, and many other Asian players play in Battle.net

I don't know that I could argue SC2 very well, but I like it more because it has better graphics, units, and it continues the story.

Sorry for the confusion:

I, the PRO, will be arguing that Starcraft I: Brood War is the best RTS game available as of now. The CON just has to show one (or more, if you wish) RTS game that is superior to StarCraft I: Brood War.

So are we just debating the StarCraft series or just StarCraft I period?

At least change it to SC1: Broodwar. :P

@Zealotical: Remember that World of Warcraft is a MMORPG, not a RTS. Warcraft I, II, and III are RTS games.

@Zealotical:
Sure. You can use one or multiple examples to prove your point. Your call :)

If I were to accept this debate, could I argue that more than 1 game is better than StarCraft 1? Like for example StarCraft 2 and World of Warcrap I mean Warcraft is better than StarCraft 1?

I am not yet familiar enough with SC2 to argue for it. Although, you are more than welcome to argue that SC2 is a better RTS game than SC1 if you accept the challenge.

Why'd you pick SC instead of SC2?
