Starcraft 2 Beta – Jame needs your help

author image by Jame | Blog | 6 Comments | 18 Feb 2010

Hey everyone,

I’m posting this news as an urgent plea for help.

The Starcraft 2 Beta started yesterday, and I still don’t have access, despite all my attempts. I’m getting a little desperate here. I really thought that after so many years writing guides and running a useful fansite for a blizzard game, it wouldn’t be so complicated to get beta access to one of their games. But apparently, everything isn’t always fair, even in the wonderful world of blizzard.

My new Starcraft 2 Fansite is about to go live, but there’s not much I will be able to do there at this rate. How can I write guides, reviews and news there if I can’t play the game myself?

That’s why I’m turning to you, my community. If you have a spare beta key you’re willing to share with me, it would be a tremendous help.

How you can contact me:

1. e-mail me: jame (@) or (@)
2. Private message me here on wow-pro. Go to Jame’s profile and click on “Write private message”

Thank you guys in advance for your help.

    Hopefully you are ready to be writingThe day is here and the release is tonight at Midnight. Hopefully you preordered your copy of Starcraft 2 so that you’ll get it tomorrow like me or you are camping out at one of the stores to pick it up tonight. Either way I’m stoked for one of the most anticipated titles in gaming software for the last decade. Keep up the good work Jame and I look forward to your review and/or posts on Starcraft 2.

    I’m very sorry to hear thatI’m very sorry to hear that Jame, but surely there is some nice guy out there who is willing to give you his or her key 😉

    I didn’t get one either, but I still have good reasons to hope, because I’m running MacOS X and as far as I know the current beta phase is windows-only.
