I wish someone would make campaign mods for Wings of liberty and Heart of the Swarm. Add more levels, add all the units to choose from. Hell Blizzard should add in all the units and expand all campaigns and have way more levels and more missions. I may be the only person who cares more about the story than mulitplayer but I cannot be the only one who wouldn't want more units, missions and choices in the campaigns
