Re: Beta, release, and general timeline updates from Dustin "Cavez" Browder.

I recommend to those who have put their lives on hold for SC2 to find a girl and get a room.

You'll be too busy to worry about SC2's development.

Re: Blizzcon 09 announced sc2 beta?

One can only hope that it is true. However, I doubt we will see any MMO announcement at this year's Blizzcon.

What we will see is probably a new class for Diablo 3 and announcement of Starcraft 2...

Re: Beta, release, and general timeline updates from Dustin "Cavez" Browder.

Re: Mr Jack has been busy

I thought the square cannon made it a rail gun (two rails of either side) that can launch very big non-cylindrical projectiles.

Zerg is the biggest disappointment of SC2. They could've completely redid the Zerg race. Evolve everything into the *next* version.
