no it won't have heroes.

slight possibility of heroes in campaign (like original starcraft)but they will definately not be part of skirmish and online modes. That said, blizz maycode heroes and make them availableforcustom maps as dota style maps are so popular

It will have single player heroes (stronger, faster or special pew pew stuff). However you can't use them in a multiplayer game (unless its a player made map)

Blizzard reps have already stated that there will be no rpg element heros in StarCraft 2. Thank goodness.

A good thing that they do,because I wouldn´t want a Warcraft 3 aproach on Starcraft 2.

I hope not, heros ruined wc3 imo. Made the game entirely base around what heros/abilities were used and not actually strat/micro like SC had.

Probably because that's what they didn't go for. Sad they ruined WC 3, only around 30K players play the actual game at the same time and another 160K + play mods like DOTA, Vampire, etc, that are based around the same feature that ruined this superb RPG/RTS hybrid, the RPG elements,heroes.

You didn't get the "there are no heroes" part.

They will be available for use in the editor, just not in the "normal" melees.

Only in the single player campaign, thank God. I kind of hated how much of an impact heroes had in Warcraft III multiplayer. They did give Warcraft III a unique feel, but I felt like too many matches came down to who had the higher level heroes, which to me was really stupid. I didn't really like the creep hunting aspect of Warcraft III and it also felt to me like some of the maps favored the Night Elves in that regard.

Maybe because I said nothing about SC? I somehow see only WC 3 in my post and WC3 mods. I know SC will not have heroes, why would it? it's not that type of RTS, actually it's a pure RTS not an RPG/RTS hybrid.

And no doubt, the Starcraft 2 editor will create some awesome mods, I mean, making a TPS from an RTS engine? hell yeah :D.

I mean that if the heroes system "ruined" WC3, there's no telling it will not do the same to SC2. I thought that you describing what the hero system did to WC3 implied hoping that it wouldn't do the same to SC2.

A hero system similar to WC3 will be available, just not used in the official melees.

And heck, if the editor works properly it will be even more friggin awesome than how awesome it already is.

Especially if it turns out you can make FPSs too. I'd love to make a SC-styled Unreal Tournament and post it on Epic's forums with a "In your face, Cliffy" signature :D

Meh, heroes are still gonna be OP. Who can forget Edmund Duke and his infamous Siege Tank. Can kill any ground Zerg with one shot easy and maybe two or three shots to down a ultralisk. Then there was Duran and his OP Ghost form. My goodness.

Matt Horner has a face that makes him likely to betray the good guys and turn to the dark side.

This. Heroes ruined my interest for the WC III mp. DoW did a lot better job with the heroesimplemantation. As long as I known, heroes will not be available in the Starcraft II multiplayer, which is cool.
