    And the mighty candle has spoken again. Oh that candle is one imba candle. I didn't see that coming..

    TT

    No tournaments, no nothing. More galaxy editor and learning things there I guess.. cant believe it. When they said 'few weeks before release beta will be over' I expected to be over in the end of June since that would be 3 weeks from the release - 27 July but no...

    Also IMBA disconnections!

    We can all still use the editor and such even if B.net doesn't let us sign in though, I am hoping!


    And places like iccup might get tons of people playing for the time that there is no beta...

    Blizzard won't allow virtual LANs like Garena/iccup happen for SC2. Yes we can still use the sc2 editor as it loads a game offline and I will be back to wc3 for the time beta is down.

    i dont think we should trust in that, i mean, if that really was an official announcement of blizz there would have been some people overlooking it and a spelling mistake like "know" in the first sentence wouldnt have happened...
    i mean, it really doesnt make much sense NOW.. you get what i mean? :p

    Won't allow?

    Go check how many there are for Wc3, and Starcraft 1, and Diablo 2, Oh, not to mention all the WoW servers.

    They can't stop it.

    They are using a completely new system for verification and account and considering how strictly they made it, I doubt they will leave someone to simulate LAN like that. Plus it looks like blizzard are now taking real action against those trying to make sc2 playable else-like i.e Emulators/LANs.

    Blizzard Sues 'StarCrack' Hackers, Promptly Dismisses Suit

    Anyway don't worry, there will be beta maybe for at least 2 or 3 weeks. The scenario I can think of is:

    June - no beta, they are working on it. The SC2 Editor will be available all the time ofc that's just the server.
    July - first 2-3 weeks will be the final phase (until 14th-21st) then from 14th/21st July no beta anymore and weeks waiting until the game is on the shelves.

    Who knows, they may bring the option to publish a map on the final phase.

    Um, you are aware you have been playing SC2 for free before its release...

    Only after it is released, will stuff start to get interesting.

    Then why evem comment if the beta is comming to an end as it is of no concern to you.

    Mid July you will have the full product (or atleast if you buy it), better than any beta. It will have a lot more content than the beta and custom maps will be playable multiplayer.

    Yes, the SC2 editor will be usable all the time and they may give us 2 or 3 weeks in July for the 'final phase'. Since patch 12 it drops often and my whole connection even to websites is lost after sc2 drop.. It rly needs fixing. No fun giving so many free wins.

    Does anyone know if the maps we develop now will be compatible with the future versions of the editor?
