So you may have heard by now... StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty launched! As players sink their teeth into the single-player campaign and work to climb up the multiplayer ladder, let us take a look back at all of the information that’s circulated this week.
It Feels Like Old Times Already
Whether you have limited StarCraft experience or you were sitting comfortably atop the Diamond league in beta, you need to read about and check out our all-new game guide. There you’ll find pages of helpful tips and tricks for navigating through Battle.net, StarCraft II gameplay, and the systems of the Koprulu Sector. We’ll regularly be expanding on these guides too, as was noted when we introduced a new section this week: What is StarCraft II?
If you fancy yourself a competitor, be sure to swing by our Leagues and Ladders FAQ for clarification on some common questions. If you have additional concerns, head to our Multiplayer and eSports forum so that we can address them in upcoming blogs. We’ve even put together an overview of character profiles so you know how your successes on the battlefield can be tracked, as well as some information on how to get the most out of Battle.net and Real ID.
Nuclear Launch Detected
We’re overjoyed by the turnout at our global midnight launch events. If you didn’t catch the size and scope of the release parties, check out all the spicy images we’ve gathered from folks the world over. Hey, there’s a nice little video too! While you’re at it, you can read all about the celebration we had at our North American midnight launch event in Orange County, as we covered it live (part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5).
If you have yet to listen to BlizzCast #14, where Production Director Chris Sigaty and Game Director Dustin Browder summarize their thoughts and feelings on the beta test process and the subsequent release of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, we highly recommend it.
It’s been mere days since the official launch, and we’re only beginning to get our feet wet sharing new information and topics of discussion with the community. Stay tuned for much more to come!
