This started to pop up on SC2 forums this morning.

https://kr.battle.net/account/_images/icons/sc2beta.gif

If it's removed, here is a link that has a picture of the original icon and discussion on team liquid.

This only appears for a few people, sometimes with constant reloading.

If it wasn't for the latter, I'd think it only appeared on people who have been chosen for the beta.

It's been isolated to people who have signed up for b.net via the korean portion. (note the fact that the icon is on kr.battle.net and not us.battle.net

I found steps to recreate the icon.

1. Log into battle.net
2. Goto beta preferences and hit the back button (This doesn't seem required for everyone. Was needed on my wife's computer however)
3. Goto the address bar and change the letters from (us.battle.net -> kr.battle.net) while leaving the rest normal) This should be done on the main battle.net screen

NOTE/EDIT: Ensure that IE8 is in compatibility mode. Suggested in a later post.

Cant get it to appear for me. :(

EDIT:
Nevermind, I got it to appear when I turned compatibility mode on IE8. I should really start using Firefox.

I tried several times with the huge adress bar I had lke us.battle.net/?432342?LOG%T3"R/JP:/OJRP"JRP"JRP"OJ etc...
but I couldn't load the page to the KR version.

Then I just wrote :
https://kr.battle.net/account/management/

And it appeared.

IMO, this is completly random and have nothing to do with any kind of selection or beta approaching. It was probably there 3 weeks ago when korea recieved their opt-in.

Shows up for me with out doing anything. I do not have a beta key from blizzcon or a fan site contest. This probably just means that you have opt'ed in for the sc2 beta... either that or I am really really really lucky and I will be checking my email every 5 minutes for the next week.

I think *everyone* on Battle.Net can see the new logo so I doubt that it is any evidence that we are actually invited, just that the option is now being added.

In summary, it means nothing but we are desperate for news. :)

I don't have that "download" button. It looks kinda fake.
Though I do get the "SC2 Beta" icon now! I wonder what happened to make it suddenly appear...

Just updating the site I guess, it was rumored that the beta would launch around this time period.

on Gosugamers.net, it is "confirming" that the Green logo is NOT consistant with everyone who opted-in, and it is NOT on everyone's account in the US or KR. Anyone able to confirm or deny with actual evidence?

The SC2 beta logo shows up even if you create a new account right now and don't have any games registered. Basically, as many of you have deduced, it just doesn't mean anything regarding who's in and who isn't.

So, this thing suddenly appears a few days after a large fansite gathering at Blizzard HQ... and the gag order for the fansites ends Monday... maybe we'll hear more then?

But do you know that for sure? have you yourself created a new account and did it or are you just going from the "hearsay" of TL. I dont know where GG.net would say they confirmed this then.

Right - most of the stuff for bnet KR is a bit diff - I wouldn't say this means a whole lot.
