StarCraft II fans will have to upload their PC specs in order to be eligible for the upcoimng beta opt-in.
thats weird, i guess they dont want to give the beta to ppl who cant play it
You might be correct. However I also believe they are trying to get a broad range of systems for testing purposes.
I think it's likely more for getting a feel of what types of systems people have rather than pigeon holding ppl. Could also be a DRM-thing...
It's unfortunately not unlikely that it could be a sort of DRM for people, so they can only play it on one machine. This brings up the question if there will be an NDA or not...
Finally, we are officially one step closer to the Starcraft 2 beta! How big of a step it is remains to be seen of course, but I am happy nonetheless
"That's one small step for man; one giant leap for StarCraft II"
I wonder if you'll be able to play the beta on more than one machine...
Yes, I'm a bit apprehensive about this, actually.
I sure hope Blizzard will allow that, on the other hand, it's a closed beta. So I'm pretty sure you can activate it only once. Too bad.
cool. It's coming baby. It's Coming !!!
Where getting closer and closer :D
I better do that sharpish!
Oh dear lord O.O It approaches! :D
That's... odd. I guess they don't want a bunch of people getting keys who can't play the game properly.
What is so strange about them wanting to have testers with a viable system?
upload a snapshot? you mean enter a cdkey?
oh....IC...PC spec. that make sense. I guess blizzard don't want to give out keys to someone with pc that can't run the game at all.
This program uploads a small selection of your systemspecs and binds them to your battle.net account. Do keep in mind that you have to have at least 1 game registered in your account to be able to opt-in at all!
Starting in the months ahead? That doesnt sound cool. That sounds like August-ish after Blizzcon. I don't want it on August. I want it NOW !!!
I assume they will "opt in" people through the entire beta, which will be several months. COULD also mean a very delayed beta, we'll see...
man....people will start to be suspicious again.....hope Blizzard won't leave us in the dark for too long after this...
Don't be silly, Blizzard always leaves people in the dark for long periods ;)
Good news. There's no point testing the game if you can't run it.
What's the point. That's why you should all get macs...!
Ouch, this is not good news for people who want the beta, but don't yet have a good PC, including myself. I'm upgrading in June, what if they release the beta before then? O.O I'll be screwed!
I'm wondering if perhaps I have a better chance at getting into the Beta if I use my Mac versus my PC... :)
