The strange downtime at Battle.net/WoW forums the other week seems to have resulted in a "StarCraft II Beta - English (EU)" forum opening soon.
Sounds promising enough. I´m guessing the beta will drop next month, it´s the only reason why we´d have so much news going on about the beta at the moment. We´ll see.
There has been a few of these "leaks" in the past few weeks. Not a proper leak, just *signs something is cooking* inside Blizzard. I mean, for every one of these mistakes, they must do a hundred completely covert changes on the inside.
This is a big company, and even though they are very good at keeping secrets, once in a while one leaks out. These are not really secrets as such. Perhaps they don't care, or perhaps it's intentional, to start beta hype. However, considering last year, I don;t think they would be intentionally fuelling the fire like they have unless it's actually starting soon. And by "soon" I mean the definition normal people would have, like "next few weeks, or a month".
Well there you have it, predictions for beta kick off anyone?
Considering Blizzard had no warning for their last beta (WotLK) I have no clue. Could be tonight (when US office opens) or by the end of the month. Doesn't feel like it's far off, regardless...
Definately, I would say its looking very close :D
Less than a month?
Near future? Most likely. Less than a month? I doubt it. Blizzard will keep us on our toes but I doubt a beta will be dropped within a month.
Wow, closer and closer it seems till beta release :D
Sweet :D Lookin quite promising hehe
One more of those beta rumors and i may have a heart attack.
You should probably turn off your internet for a week or so if you have that type of problem. They don't seem to stop any time soon...
more news about something might happening with Starcraft!! arrg!!!
Oh, now I really start to long for this Beta.. even if I don't get to play it :) Release it now, not soon* ;) (*=Blizzard TM)
I might have mentioned this, but the "final stretch" they mentioned, was actually almost exactly a year ago!
Really? I thought it was at LEAST around May-June 2009!
Sounds like we might actually see it this year, then ;/
That is really exciting, if the forum is opening up, then it's very clear the Beta has got to be starting soon, I just can not wait :D!!!!
how do i get into the beta
go to to battle.net sign into your blizzard account (create one if you don't have one) click on SC2 beta settings button on right side of screen Follow directions to get a snapshot of your computer system specs You're done
..Then, if you're picked you've got your access. There is confusion that the beta is open to everyone, this has been proven to be untrue. In fact it's open to everyone who opts in via b.net, provided you're selected. http://forums.battle.net/th... 7th post down, first page.
