At first I was going to point out that the website is up and running just fine, then I read the date. Yeah, that just sucks. I wonder if the new owners of the website would pick it up.

If anything, SC2 will make it easier for the foreign scene (non-koreans) to get into progaming. It's a whole new game, and also there's a lot of politics involved -- Blizzard is trying hard to wrestle control away from Korea.

That said, I'm not sure if SC2 will hold the same allure. Yeah, SC1 needed a long time to fix balance and work out all the kinks...but for the current generation of gamers, who hop from game to game, it could be too long a wait.

Beta is out now. I haven't been selected, maybe in the next wave of invites. Or perhaps I'll have to wait until the game is actually released...

A large sum of money says Blizzard fucks up SC2 in a similar fashion to the way they fucked up WoW.

Here are the streams I was switching between yesterday:

http://www.livestream.com/starcraftmethod
http://www.livestream.com/tlchill
http://www.livestream.com/huskystarcraft

There are also some listed here:
http://www.teamliquid.net/beta/

So far it looks very similar to SC1 in terms of gameplay and mechanics. I'd like to know what you meant by "the RTS equivalent of TF2", Bridget.

There are quite a few differences between sc1 and sc2 mechanically, it's more similar to wc3 in terms of mechanics but closer to sc1 in gameplay.

People say it's much faster than starcraft - which says a lot.

btw the next wave of invites will be 'possibly within the next two weeks'.

Doesn't look cartoony nor slow. Bridget is only commenting to make people rage.

I've downloaded the client ahead of time but I need to wait for a beta invite to be able to log in to bnet. Unfortunately that's a bit farther away than I had hoped.

From watching live play, I'm not sure I'll buy it. I wish they'd make a public beta like HoN so I could at least try it a couple times.
