TheTias does a good job making the argument in another thread:
02/09/2014 07:04 PMPosted by TheTiasThis kind of baffles me. Those that download the starter edition of SC2 cannot access the TS fora if they have problems. Likewise, as a TS MVP I can't access the TS fora because I do not have an active full edition license. None of the other two games' fora have this limitation still in place.
You'd think that getting help to those looking into SC2 for the first time would be the best way to give a good impression. Is there a reason why these help areas have this lockout in place?
