Blizzard has taken the words "community" and "connectivity" very serious in StarCraft II, and the sole fact we did not get a beta last year is Battle.net. Does it live up to such big expectations?
Shame about the region divide...
This is the one thing I dislike the most.
I have so many American friends IN THE BETA I can't play with... Unfair!
............yeah not going to be too happy about that one either
Wow. That's awful. Seriously awful.
I really don't understand the regional divide from their development pillair perspective. Connecting everyone was one of the goals right? I know connecting iceland with australia is a major round trip time disaster, but I do really dislike the fact that it is just being made impossible.
Huge potential, hope the wait has been worth it
I'm just surprised they did not start sooner is all...
Yeah, why did they not start the Battle.net programming about say when SC2 was announced?
who knows, might have been some bugs somewhere that gave them some headaches when they tried to make the first version of bnet 2.0 /shrug
I hate some of Battle.net and god, why seperate me from my american friends!?
Channels will return, in some form, probably once clans are added.
Like recruitment channels and such? Yeah, I'm surprised they are gone completely.
well one thing i hope for if they give us the clans feature again. dont freaking make it time out when certain amounts of members don't log in. I lost my guild's data and channel due to that in warcraft 3.
I agree the chat system should be not restricted to region. if they want this to be a good alternative. Id like to se how it plays out firsthand. id say no to a poorer or equliant version of Steam. if it is in truth inovative and fully functional then this is some awsome news
