Thread: About when do you think SCII Beta will start?

    It's so pointless to speculate. By now we all pretty much know what the situation is. The game is ready for beta, the devs WANT the game to be in beta, but the infrastructure with B.NET 2.0 needs more work before the game is ready for public eye and any sort of stress test. Anybody that's worked in programming knows that complicated tasks like this could be an uncertainty. I'm sure they're working as fast as they can, but right now they very likely have no idea when the beta will be ready as its completely contingent on them finishing up the B.NET work.

    I think they said theyll be showing battle.net in mid July, and probably at that time theyll announce the beta date, so Im guessing late July (like July 2-).

    If not, then no SC2 this year.

    Well, they also said that before beta, they will play internally with all Blizzard employees. How long would that phase be?
    That phase is over I think.

    Do they need "B.Net 2.0" finished and working, though? Isn't that mostly the social stuff? From my understanding, they just need it processing and able to support games, not necessarily having ALL the extra features working.

    Mid-Late July by the way they're talking in the interviews, possibly (and more optimally) August 1st would be likely.

    They never said that all Blizzard employees are testing the game. Right now, only the SC team gets to play it.

    Right now I think it will start somewhere between July aaaaaaaand 2011.

    This isn't exactly something they're going to be reporting on...

    ...even though they did.

    Bnet shouldn’t take too long... after all they did say it only felt like Bnet 1.9 instead of Bnet 2.0.


    Back with all gun's blazing.

    That phase will be over when the beta comes out. This doesn't mean that they had a planned date for said phase to end that has already come to pass, just that they're still currently in that phase.

    Sure, we could all play on the current BNet, but more than likely the game will require play on (and is probably coded to interface directly with) BNet 2.0. It's hard to say, being that I don't work on the team and i'm not a serious programmer, but I imagine that it's not as easy as just playing on a different server with different software interfaces.
    I'm so bad at SC, but I love it so much!
