When researching information for the Beta Link Repository, I found this information. I don't want the comments to fly there and keep it purely informative. But I Do want to talk about this potential rumor.

Beta Link Repository: http://sclegacy.com/forums/showthread.php?t=463

Links in Question:
News: Top Foriegners get beta emails on June 10th (http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=95098) <-- Confirmed Rumor
News: OCRegister mentions a Blizzard Press Event- er.. sorry! Had to delete that post! (http://gaming.freedomblogging.com/2009/06/15/getting-in-the-bunker-with-starcraft-ii/2473/)
News: Blizzplanet recognizes OCRegister speaking about a Press Event on June 22nd. (http://www.blizzplanet.com/blog/comments/starcraft_ii_beta_is_nigh_gaming_media_gets_blizza rds_alert_call/)

This has NOT been confirmed by Blizzard and should be considered as Rumor (as the emails are) but it does line up rather interestingly with the other rumors released.

I read on the SC2GDF that the OCRegister link originally said next week would bring a demo of single player. Shortly afterwards it was retracted.

Good catch. Interesting none-the-less. I'll update the title to not be misleading. I'd hate to be part of a reason that a good handful of people get hopeful over nothing.

EDIT: Bugger, I can't update the public note, can an admin change the title please?

if there happens to be a press conference and/or demo of single player will SCLegacy be there to cover it and/or having it up on your youtube account?

Oh come on, a single player demo before the multiplayer beta? If Karune had $1 for everything we go wrong...

What? singleplayer? No way...the date is possible but included demo of SC2 ... thats after beta not during the beta...

Edit: one thing I don't understand is the fact that those fansites don't do any screnshoots of those emails... I mean if I had something like that, I would give some proofs...

Think about it if you were a blog, you'd put up something Starcraft and not worry about people arguing the validity of the post. That's my thoughts on it... these are gaming websites, not starcraft websites. Each one has 5-7 comments on them on average, no one questioning it. No need to show an internal email.

SC:L will be at every press event held by Blizzard regarding SCII. Also - regarding the first link you posted (not the repository) - I have spoken to Blizz personally about that and it is most definitely not what it seems. Top players were in fact not invited by Blizzard as reported by TL.

WTF?!? So either the claims were a lie or they were all hoaxed?

Neither - it was a special situation.

What they mean is a LIVE demonstration of singleplayer gameplay, like we've had for the last 2 BlizzCons.
