    Could the Titan's be the Xel'Naga?

    Yes, probably isn't, but Warhammer Fantasy Battle and Warhammer 40k are essentially in the same universe, just in different time periods, and Warcraft (and Starcraft) were heavily inspired by Warhammer. It would make since that the Draenei were the first descendants of the protoss, and that the humans of Azeroth used something like the Dark Portal to colonize Earth, and that Sageras was not defeated by ancient heroes but was frozen in time. Scourge could also have been the first 'Zerg'. Since the Titan's created both the Draenei and the Scourge, it could make sense that they are the Xel'Naga. Then again, assuming something like that is saying that Diablo and Sageras are the same, just that Sanctuary is some world in the Twisting Nether.

    Your thoughts?

    P.S.: Ok well, what about Project Titan? You know, Blizzard ultra secert and supposedly awesome world changing MMO. Perhaps there is a connection?

    Starcraft and Warcraft's universe has nothing to do with each other. They are not the same.

    Maybe yes, maybe no : Who knows ?

    Do you have any proof about this ?
    No you don't, in fact you have no idea about it, like everyone here.

    It's a neat thought, but the humans of Azeroth are confirmed to be the cursed, weakened descendents of the Vrykul. And I'm not sure what you mean by "Titans created the Scourge," as the plague responsible for that was a concoction from Kil'Jaden/proto-Lich King - I think.

    Anyway, yea. neat thought, but I'm pretty sure Blizz has said they aren't connected Universes. Though I wouldn't mind the Zerg getting their fangs on some demon essence.

    There is absolutely 0 evidence to suggest that the two stories are linked together. They have completely different mythologies. Look a the xel naga and titan lore. Their MOs are very different. The ONLY connection between the two is they both have 'craft' in the title, and they're made by the same company. The only thing you could try to fall back on is the occasional easteregg, but if you go that far you have to say that these two AND DIABLO all share a universe too!

    Its more than possible if they wished for it, starcraft was originally a warhammer 40k game but during its production warhammer decided they didnt want to do it anymore

    then theres warcraft that was directly inspired by warhammer also (space orcs etc)

    Nope, I don't think that they are the same thing.
    I feel like they would have to change too many things to make the stories fit in the same world.

    No. No connection whatsoever.

    Starcraft is set in the "real world" in the 2500s. The Terrans are originally from Earth.

    The universe, mythology, cosmology, and physics of the two settings are completely different.

    As there is absolutely 0 evidence to suggest that the two stories aren't linked together.
    In the real universe (where we are living), imagine, there is a totally different planet, otherwhere in space, otherwhere in time, ruled by a race of Super-intelligent cats. How could we know it ?
    We can't say that this planet do not exist, but we can't affirm that it does.
    Same thing here.

    And ?
    Maybe Azeroth is in the "real" world too, localised at thousands of light-years from Earth : who knows ?
    Btw, i'm not sure that the physics are the same as Earth's one on other REAL planets.
    Same for mythology.

    You're reacting way too strongly to the story. If Blizzard wanted it to be set in our universe, they'd say it. You're overthinking Pebrock's and Kathranis' comments way too much.

    Not obviously, as i said, we know nothing about it, we can't verify anything, also, in my opinion, blizzard didn't even thinked about that.
    BUT maybe they did, i can't know.

    This guy is right! Harry Potter and Blade Runner are the same universe! All creative works are just different aspects of the same linked universe! It all makes sense!

    (Yes, this was the plot of The Never Ending Story)

    If there is no evidence for it, why would you assume its possibility?

    ..I..my brain hurts now.

    You're confusing me with the different assumptions and which ways you're going with each post.

    I'm going to go have tea and get back to you.

    Cause i can't say that it's wrong, and cause i also can't say that it's true.
    Maybe it's wrong, maybe it's true, we can't prove anything about the subject.

    Exactly, so why discuss it?

    Then why start the subject to start with? There's nothing to discus other than what ifs and maybes. No proof.

    Blizzard has stated that it's not the same universe. Cant remember which Blizzcon Greg said it, though.
