Love this game. Still the best competitive FPS which can be played casually (not arguing that some of its basis and game play may have been lifted from elsewhere).

Blizzard just needs to speed up the amount of time it takes to get in game.. it's ridiculous that you spend half your game time budget sitting in menus and loading screens, and the other half in either skirmish or real game. And it's not my PC contributing to the slowdown..
