As is often the case when one pre-orders games, I got my hands on Starcraft a little early.
Unfortunately, Blizzard would have none of it:
On the plus side, at midnight when the game does go live, I’ll be playing Starcraft II instead of waiting in line at Gamestop.
Curiously, SCII comes with two “guest passes” for the game. Interested to find out the logistics of how those work.
Edit: or, I could just read the back of the card, duh. The “Guest Pass” is valid for 7 hours or 14 days, whichever comes first. This seems less useful than the “spawn” installations available with SCI, but since everyone I know has a copy of SCI, we never needed it anyway.
