Global Play is coming to StarCraft II in an upcoming patch, allowing players to change regions at will. Players will be able to change their region at the login screen, also being able to play on a different region when their preferred region's servers are down for maintenance.

Each region will have separate profile data, meaning one player's ladder ranking will differ from region to region. Below are Blizzard's points about Global Play:

More about Global Play:

  • Players will be able to freely switch between regions via the StarCraft II login screen.
  • When your region’s game servers are undergoing maintenance, you may be able to play in a different region that is not down for maintenance.
  • Your game language and user interface will not change when you change regions.
  • Players using Global Play will be subject to the in-game policies of their selected play region.


The patch that introduces Global Play will be in the coming months. Read the full Blizzard post here.
