StarCraft 2 Fansite Beta Key Contests Started

Blizzard promised fansites to be able to give away beta keys as early as 2007. A few days ago it seemed the giveaways would start very soon, and this promise is now finally realised as the first sites giving away keys have now started their contests and raffles.

So far, it's only European sites that give away keys, and most are not English, but the American sites are expected to receive the green light as well any day now. (PC, Starcraft II)

just wish they had open beta.
King Klear  +   2028d ago
They might, but not anytime soon, I guess.
DJDarkstar  +   2028d ago
Well, I understand the need to limit it and open it slowly, but Blizz usually don't do an open beta even towards the end :( Still, they might change for SC2 hehe.

Great! I've been waiting for this for such a long t... wait, I already have a key! Still, the more people in, the better.

I'm wondering how long it will be before they reach their 10 000 concurrent players goal...
DJDarkstar  +   2028d ago
Well, with different timezones and such, could be a little while, but then again they have been letting more and more in hehe.
