http://www.pcworld.com/article/189104/starcraft_2_closed_beta_kicks_off_this_month.html read that, maybe it could convince youBeware of scam. I posted in Blizzard forums a possible Beta Keys Giveaway, but I got a response from Xordiah who said it is fake. The website was claiming that a Blizzard employe is giving away his job while taking hundreds of beta keys, you had to type your email but when you proceed to step 2 - it told me it is not for my area. Is it fake or this is a real employee I'm not sure. As Xordiah said, maybe there will be many fake sites around the coming game.
Wat, is it any good?
Im constantly checking the Blizzard General and Beta forums. Since Blizzard mention specs as their primary criteria, it's hard to say how they choose - they chose people who have like 6 GB, 4 GHz desktops, some with same specs, others with near to minimum. When 2 persons have the same specs I'm starting to think they choose the one with more purchased games even though they claim that numner of games doesn't increase the chances.
Beta testers are chosen according to their system specs and other factors, including luck. Our goal is to have a good variety of system types to best test compatibility.
I know where to download this client (not a torrent) but can't say here, not sure if it is legit and I'm not the uploader or linker of it. Though Magos opens the MPQ of the installer and as you can see the info above.
Im stuck at the main menu, I can see the cool main menu screen _ Main Menu music, the options ofr log in settings such as graphics, sound and music but I cant enter further as I have no key. Dont you just love that below:
I just hope that you can play the game as Single player, offline
The above screen that I posted with LogIn Info is offline? It has 'connect' button and why does it look like you need to connect thru internet in order to have single player?
..possibility of somewhat off a "lan-play"?
From what I understand from Blizzard they're planning on making LAN available on Battle.net 2.0. When you want to play with your friends you simply log on the internet and if you're all in the same network you'll have the network speed of LAN.
That's how I understood things.
Well, If the LAN system would be like in Diablo II, it would be awesome. Access to Battle.net via LAN. How was that in Diablo II?
There was just an IP Log in for the wanted player, because of that, you could even join hes Battle.net game. This was an Multi Access for a lot of players, maybe it could be done for Starcraft II also?
Sorry if you don't understand what I just sayd, But you possibly could undestand, if you had played Diablo II.
And yes, Now I failed in english.
Hmmz... All I can say is that I love thepiratebay cuz now i can watch replays in the beta... It's not much, but it's a lot more than nuttin'... And I got a massive database of replays now...
You probably shouldn't discuss a torrenting site on The Hive, I believe it's against one of the rules.
It isn't like he posted a link to it, but yeah...
oh, and... Multiplayer isn't that much better way, I prefer singleplayer.
