    For those of you who can read French:
    http://www.team-aaa.com/news-16590-0-1-la_beta_reprend_le_premier_juillet.html

    For all of the others, it basically says that some dude saw a poster in a PCBANG cyber cafe in Korea on which it was written that the SC2 beta will resume on June 27th exclusively in those cyber cafes, and for the rest of the world on July 1st.

    This doesn't seem to be confirmed by Blizzard yet.

    Hope it gets. It's not official. So don't trust it.

    Well, i certainly hope so, so I can play all the awesome maps people have been tinkering with!


    Edit :
    OT : Does anyone remember the name of the map where "bad to the bone" was playing, in midi, and you were a bunch of reapers being chased by zerglings?

    Let's think of something.

    Starcraft II gets released on the 27th of july.
    Blizzard needs 2 weeks to run a 2nd beta test.
    remove 7 from 27, since they won't release it RIGHT after the beta.
    Remove 14 more, due to the 2 week beta.
    So, we end up that the beta is gonna launch one of these 6 days. My vote is for the 1st, since they will have to do a lot of stuff in order to get a functioning retail Starcraft 2.

    The first makes total sense for a resumed beta.
    They have friday to fix technical problems. And allow a weekend for any unseen problems to be detected and fixed early nextweek.

    As you should know already, stuff generally never gets released on a monday.

    High Chances for Starcraft 2 beta to come online TODAY!

    I am sure that all of you WoW fans have noticed the extended maintainance that started today.

    If you aren't a wow fan, just keep in mind that there is a maintainance every wednesday. Today, there was an extend to it, due to the Battle.net Real ID feature.

    So, here's my thought on this.

    Since Starcraft II uses the same login server as wow, both of the games have to be up. Thus, allowing the games to connect properly, and no bugs caused by WoW client trying to connect while the Sc2 server is up, and vice versa.

    So, my beliefs is that they're delaying the maintainance to start up the beta!

    It certainly fills in with their time schedule. Today is the last day of June, and the beta has to start up on the first week of July.

    um, my point stands?

    There's extended maintenance because of the patch. You keep talking about them needing to test real ID cross-game, but that's obviously not the case since you could not use real ID between WoW's PTR and Sc2 Beta.

    By your logic, US beta should already be live.

    ^That screen is when you're about to update a new patch and always appears before patches.

    Dont you think there would be a message about upcoming patch and stuff in the log on screen if it would be 'today'? Currently it is staying with the 'We're closing on June 7th' have a nice day'.

    Major patches - Patch 9, 13, were done Friday evening to Saturday EU time, so it may actually start on July 3rd and because it is the end of the week and beta ended on Monday, it may start on July 5th.

    Ive been getting that for some time now. You can cancel it by going to Task Manager and ending the process. At least, that's how I get rid of it on Vista.
