Expansion?

Do you need to have WoL to play this, or is it stand alone?

According to GameStop.com it's an expansion and requires Wings of Liberty.

Strange considering I remember Blizzard saying each game will be standalone.

I guess they decided they will make more money this way by forcing people who haven't already to purchase WoL.

Yeah, back when they announced WoL, i'm positive they said they would all be stand alone. But hey, they also said each game would only come out about 7-8 months apart, so yeah...

they never said it was standalone. They said from the beginning it was an expansion. You are wrong.

I think what is muddying the waters here is that, at the time of the trilogy's announcement, Blizzard was quoted as saying HotS and LotV were expansions, but they wanted them to 'feel like' standalone titles.

Well if that's the case, people need to learn to up their reading comprehension. I'm not the brightesy bulb in the box and I still fully understood there was a core game+ 2 expos.

From what i remember all three was supposed to be in one purchase but blizzard being lazy and greedy they wanted to do it in three installments aka expansions and charging full price of a game 60 bucks instead of original 40.
And the fans were okay with it because theyre sheep like the cod people.
