StarCraft 2 Open Beta In Korea Only

Blizzard has been pretty clear on the fact there will not be an open beta test period like it has done with World of WarCraft in the past. The only beta is the closed one where you can opt in to, or get a key from a fansite contest.

However, Koreans who have a completely different gaming culture (and are of course the world's biggest StarCraft fanatics) will be able to play the StarCraft II beta via their normal PC Baangs. A PC Baang literally means "PC room", and is a lot like an internet cafe.

technically an open beta, but only in this cybercafe-like place.

Would be nice if some local US/Europe places could have access too.

It's very culture-specific. I doubt all 26.000 PC Baangs out there have access.

Blizzard has a special room in their hart for Korea.

Well, Koreans as a people have one for SC1 as well! :P

Much better to have a key tbh.

those koreans must be going crazy; now to wait for realm-crossing

Cogo3835d ago

Transatlantic realm crossing = Yes Please

TransAsian realm crossing = No thanks :P

I don't want to be permanently confined to Copper league :P

Leord3835d ago

I have SO many American friends I want to play with...

OTOH, there are millions of Koreans I don't want to play with :P

JsonHenry3835d ago

I refuse to play with any Korean. Not because I don't like them, it is just like a mortal trying to play catch the lightening bolt with the gods of Olympus. Not gonna happen.
