Add a reigon switcher tool

General Discussion
^
After-all why not? Broodwar had it. Simply add a tool at the login screen that let's you choose between your region, and the 4 other most popular ones.

This way you can still play when the local server is down! This way you wont have to buy an extra account! This way you can gain access to all the styles & strategies all over the world!
My SC2 has it.

I'm from SEA i have a region icon at log in and i can choose which server i log in.
...is everyone here joking or did i travel back in time? Switching among regions have been implemented for weeks.
AT the log in screen. Log into the wanted region directly.

Lol, your name is forward, you must be from the future, get it, Hahahaaaaa...
I though it was funny......
I have a region switcher at the log in screen.
It probably is because I did the manual allowance of global play back when it was first figured out.
In the meantime, you can use the same region switcher as the SEA client by adding a file into your SC2 directory.

<regions>
<region displayname="AUTHENTICATION_SG_REGION" hostname="sg"
allowedProductLocales="all" localesThatDefaultToThisRegion="enSG"/>
<region displayname="AUTHENTICATION_US_REGION" hostname="us"
allowedProductLocales="all" localesThatDefaultToThisRegion="enUS"/>
<region displayname="AUTHENTICATION_EU_REGION" hostname="eu"
allowedProductLocales="all" localesThatDefaultToThisRegion="enGB"/>
<region displayname="AUTHENTICATION_KR_REGION" hostname="kr"
allowedProductLocales="all" localesThatDefaultToThisRegion="koKR"/>
</regions>

This will cause the Region button which SEA has had for the longest time to appear (it fades in after a while), but the strings for AUTHENTICATION_EU_REGION and AUTHENTICATION_KR_REGION were only added in 1.5.4.
That's cool.

We can probably expect something akin to the D3 region change option.
Patch notes state, that global play is released within the next weeks.

Also, you can publish your maps and mods to other servers, too.
I'm a bit confused, don't we already have global play?

Or we can change a region within a server(EU for example)?

Any clarification would be great. :)
