Only 200,000 O_O
The Koreans must be very sad for only 200,000 of them may be able to beta test. I'm American and I think it' wasted on us because we're not even that good at games =/
But I guess this way, it'll become more beginner friendly since Blizzard is focusing on sales and not competition. . ,.

Speak for yourself, my friend.

I don't take the time to master most games; but i can safely say, in my prime, i could have held my own again the koreans in SC.

The total number surprised me. I honestly don't know if Warcraft 3 really had that many testers. Does anyone remember a rough number?

hmmm i wonder if starcraft 2 will sell well, considering only 200,000 people will be testing it, the f-ed up thing is that there will be way more than 40,000 signing up for the beta in each region

Of course it'll sell well. It's StarCraft 2.
