WotLK Beta Keys Usable for StarCraft II

Blizzard's RTS Community Manager Stefanie Gwinner has just confirmed that WWI keys from 2008 that were not used for Wrath of the Lich King can be used for a StarCraft II beta key. This is interesting, since it's the exact opposite of what Blizzard said before, that it was NOT possible to save it for next beta.

well....then beta key holder is more than 15,000...

Cogo3141d ago

It was already more than 15000, I assume they will add a few more thousands with the opt-ins.

Leord3141d ago

I think they are going to have a beta comparable to the WoW one, with thousands and thousands of players.

kuangtu3141d ago

I mean there are 15,000 peole in BlizzCon 08. I haven't count fans who will get their keys from opt-in, comic contest, fansites, or any other source yet.

SCFreelancer3141d ago

This is quite a surprise! I am quite sure they previously stated these where WotLK exclusive? Oh well, I guess some people got lucky :)

Cogo3141d ago

Yeah, and the question is: Will BlizzCon 2008 keys then be usable on Diablo 3 next year?!

Leord3141d ago

This is almost insulting, considering that lots of people might have wanted to use SC2 beta or Diablo 3 beta rather than WotLK!

JonahNL3141d ago

I can imagine some people feeling screwed over, because I'm pretty sure a lot used their keys just so it was put to use. Then again, if Blizzard had already told about this, do you know how many people would've held back on activating it?

sh8kes3141d ago

Oh wow, i wasnt expecting that

Dorjan3141d ago

That can't be right, are you sure?

Cogo3141d ago

Not really much to be unsure about. The Blizzard representative said it.

Dorjan3141d ago

Dosn't mean I blindly believe!

They [blizzard] have cross wires before!

Leord3141d ago

Straight from the horses mouth, or whatever English people say :)

kuangtu3141d ago

I'm wondering how many people didn't use their keys for WotLK.

it's kind interesting that base on what Chris says in the interview, this time people can write, ss, record everything in Beta test. This beta is going to be very open and big.

SCFreelancer3141d ago

Nice and all, but we still don't know when it is finally going to start :/
