I don't agree.

I don't think SC was balanced, not until there were a few patches and some revisions out of the way, and then only truly balanced after Broodwars came out.

Blizzard managed to balance WC3 very well too after the first few patches and I have faith that they will be able to do so again.

Whether the game is fresh and/or interesting willbe the challenge. It would seem like they are going to do something to differentiate the mechanics from the WC franchise - for example no heroes/far less micromanagement/more automated abilities/more emphasis on resources.

At the end of the day, as playable as SC still is, it was released a decade ago. By the time SC2 comes out, well, it could be another couple of years down the line.
