thank you for whoever accepted this debate
in order to debate, you must know how to play both games.

Starcraft is a much better game than warcraft because it is more fun

That is all I can say for now.
I will post more arguments when my opponent accepts this challenge

Fun is not something that you can use as proof for one game being better than another. Fun is subjective so I'm not really sure how I could convince you warcraft is better.

For this debate I assume you mean the original Warcraft: Orcs & Humans and not Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos?

Reasons why Warcraft is better than Starcraft.

-Warcraft came first so it is more original than Starcraft. Developers took elements of Warcraft to create Starcraft.
"In April 1998 Blizzard released StarCraft, an RTS with the concepts and mechanisms of Warcraft"
http://en.wikipedia.org...

-Without Warcraft your game wouldn't have been created. If the game had done poorly the company would not have made another RTS, it would have been foolish for them to create a similar product if Warcraft had failed.
"Warcraft: Orcs & Humans became by far the company's greatest success to that date, and for the first time made the company's finances secure."
http://en.wikipedia.org...

Starcraft may have sold more copies but sales aren't the determining factor of a games greatness.

If you meant to say starcraft was better than the whole warcraft RTS series then please state it in the next round. I believe I should be allowed to use Warcraft 2 as well since it was created before Starcraft.

I actually meant Warcraft riegn of chaos and frozen throne because other warcrafts cannot be compared to starcraft
I wouldn't call the unit control simplified in Warcraft III. If anything,
it's a lot more complicated. Lots of spells and abilities for lots of
units,
so much that it's quite easy to totally forget a vital power of a certain
unit type. Making decisions on what units you want is also harder,
because you have a very limited foodcap, so you really have to
keep a good mix of units because you can't replace them quickly
like you could in Starcraft. Keeping your units alive is way more
important in Warcraft III.

In other words, Warcraft is a lot more complicated and harder to play

Apologies for missing two rounds.

I argue the contrary to my opponent and propose that Warcraft 3 is a better game than Starcraft because it is more challenging and takes more skill. My proof lies in the fact that in round two my opponent said himself that "Warcraft is a lot more complicated and harder to play."

Warcraft 3 is also better because it has lots of spells and abilities for lots of different units. It is not the game's fault if the player cannot keep track of his units or make good use of said spells and abilities. Because of this, the fact that it's easy to forget a vital power of a certain unit type only reflects poorly on the player and not the game.

Warcraft 3 had better custom games than Starcraft as well. DotA, Line Tower Wars, Wintermaul, Footies, Element TD. All of them classic.
