StarCraft® II

You already have Heart of the Swarm™

Posts: 9
I'm getting a green popup on my account management page when I attempt to update my version of Starcraft II for the Heart of the Swarm pre-sale. It says the following:

You already have Heart of the Swarm™ in North America.
You don’t need to upgrade any other Wings of Liberty® accounts, because Heart of the Swarm™ will be eligible for Global Play (you will be able to play it in any game region). However, you can still upgrade your existing Heart of the Swarm™ account to the Digital Deluxe edition. Learn more about Global Play for StarCraft® II.

As far as I know I do not have beta access. This really plays with my emotions, As I've wanted HOTS beta access since I found out it was becoming available.

I fear that I'm going to have to wait or purchase a copy from Amazon/Gamestop to catch up to all my peers who have access to the game's multiplayer version far before I do.

However, I have no desire to purchase the digital deluxe edition - just the standard upgrade.

Blizzard, if you're reading this, that hurts. A LOT, as there's likely no chance I'll get into the beta, and you're basically saying I already am. Thanks for that. :-(

I'm not the only one! Kinda glad to hear that someone else has this "issue". Hopefully Blizz will see this and take proper action.

Yeah that was kind of disappointing. I saw that and was all like "WHOA THEY DECIDED TO MAKE THE EXPANSION FREE?" but no, no they did not.

I'm afraid I don't quite understand.

I know I haven't purchased the game so it's unlikely that I have it. But why is it asking me to upgrade my copy of HOTS?!?

Fair enough, but it prevents us from pre-purchasing the standard upgrade as well.
