Trivia

Stellar Forces was Micro Star's second unauthorized add-on for a Blizzard game. The first was Diablo: Unearthed Arsenal. Blizzard felt that the low quality of Unearthed Arsenal reflected poorly on their product and reputation (rightfully so) and filed suit to block the release and sale of Stellar Forces. Their press release read (in part):

"Today, in an effort to protect our brand and to ensure the quality of products purchased by our customers, Blizzard filed a lawsuit against Micro Star Software in connection with the sale and distribution of Stellar Forces, an unauthorized Starcraft add-on product. Blizzard believes that by using Starcraft's campaign editor for commercial purposes, Micro Star has violated the end user license agreement and is in breach of contract.

We believe that we must aggressively combat the sale and distribution of unauthorized add-ons associated with our properties. In our opinion, Stellar Forces meets neither Blizzard's standards nor our customers' expectations. As gamers ourselves, we feel obligated to prevent the sale of unauthorized add-on products that do not add value to the Starcraft experience."


Stellar Forces was recalled shortly thereafter proving once again that the only thing more terrifying than a Zerg Rush is a lawyer.
