What makes SC2 so special?

Ok, we all know it's a great game, no doubt! It demands a lot of skill to be really good and you can't beat a pro with just pure luck. SC2 fits for everyone, young and old and you don't even have to play it by yourself to enjoy it. Just spectating the games can be very entertaining. These things make the game good, but what makes it special? I like how Jeffrey Alejos said it on the SonsOfStarcraft: "It is a top down game that spawned a bottom up society, where the stars are the fans and the fans are the stars." The stars are truly the biggest fans. They spent most of the time with the game and in the game. But the real stars are the true fans, that follow and support their favourite players. Mimic their plays, spectate and cheer, support and live through their idols. But still, it's not the pros and fans who makes this so special - it's you!

Since the SC2 community is so huge there are bigger variety of people and persons. The two sides of the coin can be easely seen. If we put all the all-knowing insecure brats that are still searhing themselves, all the trolls and E-penis boosters aside there are so many great people who are working to make this community even better. Ofcourse community this big have bigger stars, those great nerdballers, who bravely guides us and spreads the word of Esports. Thank you day9 for your great shows and castings. Thank you Artosis and Tasteless for making spectating so entertaining. But you don't have to be huge nerdballer to make SC2 so special! It's even more important what happens on the lower levels of the community. How to get more and more new players to be interested about the game. How players treat each others. Ofcourse there are competition and large emotions involved but still, you can always try to give something back. So far SC2 community have exceeded all my expectations.
