Here is the Blue post from a day or two ago. It was translated on TL by orgolove.


We know that all of you are very curious about the development of the Beta with the release of many Starcraft 2 Beta Testing related news across various news portals.

아직은 베타 테스트 시작일 등 자세한 내용들까지는 확정되지 않았으며 아쉽게도 이 글을 통해 확답을 해드리긴 어려울 것 같습니다.

Unfortunately, the specifics of beta testing have not been finalized yet and I cannot give you a definite answer through this thread.

그렇지만 조금이라도 빨리 스타크래프트Ⅱ를 만나보실 수 있게 여러 가지 준비를 하나 하나 진행해 나가고 있다는 것과 베타 테스트가 매체 및 업계 관계자 등 일부 대상에 한해서만 별도로 진행되는 것이 아닌, 팬 여러분들도 함께 참여해 시작하게 될 것이라는 이야기는 드릴 수 있을 것 같습니다.

But we are trying our best to make the necessary preparations ready and introduce Starcraft 2 as fast as we can. I can definitely say that the Beta test will not just involve industry experts and other VIPs but rather will involve all fans of the franchise.


그 동안의 기다림이 얼마나 길었고 힘들었는지 그리고 지금 어떤 것을 가장 원하시는지 잘 알고 있습니다.

We understand how long and excruciating the wait was, and we also understand what you want the most right now as well.

베타 테스트에 대한 구체적인 내용은 확정되는 대로 여러분들께 전해드리겠습니다.

We will tell you about any specifics that become finalized as soon as we can.

모두 주말 잘 보내세요.


Have a nice weekend

Orgolove pointed out a A few things he missed the first time.


the second to last sentence, the "specifics" refers to the beta testing, i.e.

"We will tell you about any specifics about beta testing that become finalized as soon as we can."

And the part about what beta testing involves:

"I can definitely say that the Beta test will not just involve industry experts and other VIPs but rather will start out involving all fans of the franchise."

So basically, fans will be able to beta test from the very beginning. I assume by fans, they mean people with a beta key.

Those are the ones I posted at the top of this thread. They need proper translations.

The statement above suggests preparation for beta testing. From that statement it seems that the Beta is ready, and that only the necessary preparations are standing in the way.

This seems to be a nice thought, but yes, a more proper translation is required.

lol hope springs eternal :p I think if they came out with a statement like "BETA is not till at least 2012" and people would still be saying "oh its probably next tuesday!"


Lets face the facts, Beta is not ready until they say it is ready. Anything else is just a rumour.

Thanks for being willing to link/help Archer. I will have to say that it's actually in the queue before you posted it (which makes me kinda happy) but it's nice to know that if we would have missed it, it would be here.

Amen Brother.

I really hope they give many thousands of beta keys to the Starcraft fan sites before they randomly give them out to the 12 million WoW players who clicked the "include me in future betas" button when they created their mandatory Battle.Net accounts.

Fail.

Blizzard wants the input of these people too.

He didn't say anything about whether or not Blizzard wants their input, he merely pointed out that many people who are not big
fans of SC1 received beta keys because they attended Blizzcon, while many die-hard SC1 fans will not.

Of course, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that because Blizzard definitely does need input from people who are not
die-hard fans; however, I don't think that was Sandwich_Bird's point

I wouldn't be surprised if most of those WoW guys either forgot about or even threw away those keys. And then of course, there are the enterprising few who would collect as many as possible and sell them to pay off their bills.

Sorry for being off topic, but I don't believe this warrants a new thread...

Has SC:Legacy received any of the beta keys they were supposed to get from Blizzard? As part of the fansite program + and to give away to the faithful aprils fools respondees?

Alas, that was so long ago...and so was may 2007....damn beta...actually no...DAMN GAME JUST GO RETAIL!!! :(

I just read the SCL news staff. However I think you guys missed the two korean posts at the begining of this thread. You got the third one.

SCbeta keys could start appearing on Ebay/Craigslist when the beta is announced and keys are handed out. Diehard fans without the means have an option there, if they're really diehard.

And of course, there will be alternatives. There always are.

Oops.
Will get working on those once exams are over (so Wednesday at the latest).
Just to let you know, those two posts do talk about beta, but nothing groundbreaking. It doesn't even talk about release dates, actually.
