I logged in to battle net early this evening and I was surprised that Starcraft 2 Season 6 was already activated. With some few automatic updates everything is set. Like the previous season you need to play 1 game for placement of your division. Again I went to Bronze division meaning I’m not that good in playing the game. It doesn’t matter as my goal this season is to climb to top 10 in this division.
StarCraft II is a sequel to the real-time strategy game StarCraft. It was released back in July 27, 2010. I got my copy a week after and since then Im hooked to this strategy game.
Back in College I used to play Starcraft over at Battle.net. Mostly, I played with koreans. But when MMO games starting to come out I moved to that kind of game and eventually hooked like there is no tomorrow.
With the announcement of two heavyweights games coming out from Blizzard which are Starcraft II and Diablo 3 players were asking if these two games will be playable on Battle.Net? Blizzard eventually confirmed that its playable on Battle.net and newer version which is called Battle.net 2.0 is currently being constructed and its structures being developed. Initial features of Battle.Net2.0 includes :
* Excellent Ping
* Channels and Chat in-game
* Ladders and Rankings, secured against cheating.
* Extended stats, with possibility to see who D/C etc (source)
* AMM-type Matchmaking
* Avatars, Images and Icons to represent yourself
* Diablo III Hardcore mode
* Friends/Ignore Lists with advanced management (see accounts below)
* Clan Support
* Automated Tournaments
Let’s make sure that we will be there when its ready.
I’ve been searching for the starcraft 2 release date earlier but did not find any official statement about the release date. Some game sites were posting that the release date would be on December 2008 or January 2009.
There is an article over at http://pc.ign.com/articles/900/900934p1.html that starcraft 2 is already on the Alpha stage testing. This is a good news since most of us are eager to get our hands on the game.
