Starcraft 2 and RTS design

As much as I hate Starcraft 2, I do have to give Blizzard props for their alternate mana mechanics, such as the Terrans Orbital Command’s spells, Chronoboost and Queen’s spells.

These mechanics don’t just help make the races different, but also give the players options in their macro, rather than just doing standard builds like a robot.

With this post, I’m going to explore other alternative resource mechanics, but that’ll come later.
