View Full Version : Tomorrow is the big day - your hopes

So what do you think we will see tomorrow, what kind of news SC:L is preparing?
I hope that they will start the servers and release the beta version, but my rational thinking tells me that we will see the announcement that the SC2 beta will start on some other date and that they will be releasing beta keys by now (monday 29)

There was a secret "news" conference last Monday, but the info cannot be revealed until this Monday (tomorrow). Speculations that it concerns StarCraft II's beta are high.

Yeah, cuz we cant imagine anything else that Blizzard is hiding for SC2 except Beta.

StarCraft II fans should be used to that by now :)

Hammy
06-28-2009, 09:49 AM
No, SC2 fans should stop saying that the beta is upon us everytime they refresh the bnet website and it takes a second too long to load... :p
Of course it's fun to speculate though. And I'm not saying this thread is worthless^^ I guess I just disagree with the title.

I understand I maybe asking for a lot, but is there the chance of a midnight post letting us know a bit of the info?

Wankey

Hey Zero,

Can you give us a definite ETA of when the info will be posted? If it is definitely not midnight EST when i won't stay up refreshing this page.

Gradius
06-28-2009, 10:00 AM

My guess: Battle.net 2.0
Nothing more, nothing less. Plus, some info about the latest build.

In the meantime Q&A batches, maybe a battlereport.

Then Blizzcon(huge Singleplayer coverage), one week later start of beta(Sep 1st)

That won't happen...

August at the latest is when the beta will hit.



Seriously :x who ever said it would be the "big day"? Sure we're all hoping for awesome news but you're might just be setting yourself up for a huge disapointement.

It's A big day anyway.

They didn't call them to Blizzard HQ just to say 'hey how's it going?' at the very least we'll get some new screenshots, new videos and/or new information.

A beta date is at least possible, but unlikely. Though I'm kinda wondering what the heck they're waiting for... haven't they had a beta date internally since like... january?

Bisso
06-28-2009, 10:43 AM
beta for september is not a good news. Since Blizz will want at least 4-5 months for beta testing. This means if they release it in September, they will ship the game in late January, mid february which is a very bad date for marketing pupose.

And also, 1 week ago i think, in the Gamehack or something, blizz dev told that they were aiming for 2009 release. Of course that proves nothing, but they wouldn't say this if they knew the beta was going to be released in september.

I really think it's near us guys. Monday will have the fansite having their news. And we just might see Blizzard giving the first batch of beta keys later this week.

StarCraft: Legacy and other websites are the one launching the information, not Blizzard.

The NDA runs out on Monday, so they're releasing it as soon as they possibly can. Which would be 12:01 am PST.

But yeah I'm honestly not expecting a lot. Probably some b.net 2.0 crap and that's it. And that's crap because everything they could add in this new service as already been done somewhere else (xbox live anyone?). I'm not saying that this is bad news or anything of the sort but just pointing out that there's probably not much to be excited about the new b.net.

However, she manages to escape with the help of Connor. Lorne used this ball under a cloth as a "mystic mojo".

I would like to think they said ok the beta is coming June 29 or 30th, but then these sites would have blabbed it all before Blizzard could announce it. So hopefully that is the case and we will see emails going out tomorrow. Thoughts?

Question: Is Zero (SC:L) and Leord (SCW) are some known SC major players?

What? o_O

Also this thread has ended up relatively spammy, 90% due to my boredom. Shall we lock it once the post is made and discussion of the actual information can be made there? It'll give you all a minute between me locking it and posting the other one to get all excited and stuff.

I just want to see a modern screenshot. I'm sick of watching months old screenshots.

I mean, even the latest ones we got are about 3-4 months old (It's in PC Gamer, and thus means it's many months old because they always write their magazines months in advance)

Just really want to see the CURRENT state of the game.

Wondering if Zero a SC forum leader SC fansites who also a player and does anything related to multi things that notice by blizzard to have him SC:L representative. I don't know anything about the old SC:L or what you guys did then.

Same thing whoever went to the meeting like Leord of SCW.

... are you trying to say something like "Since Zero is a reasonably well known forum moderator working at a reasonably well known fansite then whoever else went to the meeting will also be reasonably well known individuals"?

Zero and however went else have some skills SC multiplying. (Minus the Koreans players.) Zero and other forum leaders talked to them on subjects the fans want, Blizzard wants know what their fans want from Blizzard. Draw in more future players and increase SC2 popularity/success once its finally released.

I'm thinking the whole meeting was to have known SC sites have the representative gather up fan questions to test out SC2 personally where it be multi, editor, beta, and developer chat and to see that SC2 meets their fans expectations etc. Add more last minute to the beta they got waiting for us. Things that wouldn't work, playing issues, colors, balance, disappointments etc.

See, to me it seems like these media people just got exactly what people at Blizzcon got, a chance a play a shit ton of starcraft 2, and as far I know we were all allowed to write about our experiences and impressions of Blizzcon, so I don't know what the purpose of an NDA would be unless their was a much larger secret looming in the dark corner. And NDA on unit stats? screenshots? I doubt anyone bothered taking notes of all that, or were allowed screenshots so it can't be anything like that. SPEAK, THE POWER OF CHRIST COMPELS YOU

Ahh good someone who likes to snipe as well, this could be fun.

Edit: perhaps we could actually steal a copy of sc2 if it comes around to having to be CWAL part duex instead of only writing about it.

You guys are worse than the Mass Effect fanboys asking for relationships with Tali n Garrus (which, for the uninformed, is impossible on a cellular level).

Ugh. A relationship with Tali would be gross. She's like 15...

It's like Snake and Meryl... except... worse.

So like, I'm expecting the usual screenshots, information, state of the game.

MAYBE stuff on Battle.net 2.0.

MAYBE a beta date, or more information about the beta.

But I'm not expecting either at all. Just so I'm not disappointed.

Like I said, it's probably information about BNet 2.0 (since practically nothing is already known about it). There was also a screenshot from TL (I think) that showed the BNet 2.0 interface, i'm pretty sure that adds some weight to the argument. Also, one of the mods said they hadn't been told any dates. If blizz was planning on starting the beta today, it's not something they told the press about.

Well really. Why would they tell websites...? They don't need to. But if they wanted a lot of information about the game out on the same day they announce a beta date... well... that'd be the way to go about it.

But I'm so fishing. Don't believe anything I say. I'm a total beta zombie.

I expect to see BNet 2.0 information. It is the one thing Blizzard has not talked about since the announcement of the game (reason for NDA). The other reason I think it might be about BNet 2 is because TL posted a screenshot of them showing at minimum a picture of part of the BNet 2.0 interface.

I am very excited for this information, it has always been the most intriguing to me since they announced there was a new battle.net. Beta info? Maybe, but we probably wouldnt get that kind of information from fansites. They generally just throw beta out randomly and then you find out that it was released, but this is SC2 so you cant be 100% sure.

You're correct in that they probably wouldn't tell the websites anything, but why would the website be spoiling beta information? That's right, they wouldn't!

Whatever blizzard gathered the press for isn't the beta. I still go with BNet 2.0. I'd much rather see a beta tomorrow, but we can't all have our dreams come true!
