From US to New Zealand

General Discussion
Will I be able to play on B.net?
I read that the US version was one of the few version that doesn't let you play on other international servers. Any truth to that?

EDIT: Isn't about gameplay...my bad.
Yeah, you got it right.

I moved from NZ to here, and I got to start a brand new NA extension of my NZ account.

But... going the other way won't work.

Damn. So theoretically if I wanted to play online I would have to buy another copy of SC?

I'm not moving, just going down for a month, my family moved there though (but they do'n't play SC :P )

Nope. Just keep using your US account while in NZ. Infact you'll get better ping than if you have a SEA account!

(that's why SEA customers got a free NA account, because the ping in some countries - NZ and Australia - is better to NA than to Singapore)
i om Argentina south America, can play the US version without lag, dunno across continents but im pretty far from servers

Wicked. Hope that proves the case for me too.
Cheers for the help guys!
