Default Starcraft II delayed again.

Saw the news in NCIX forums...

SCII delayed to 2010, due to battle.net.

Also stated that "StarCraft II beta could last from four to six months". I want my beta!

Gaah. I've been waiting for this ever since it was announced. I'm worried about them not supporting LAN, has there been any developments on this?

I'm not really surprised they delayed it again. Hopefully they are delaying it for a good reason (please god let it be LAN..).

Well, I guess they can't blame it on LAN problems.

StarCraft II is overhyped. Nothing new on the table really except for graphics and eye candy. I guess "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" comes into play.

New graphics is more than enough for me, SC:BW graphics give me headaches! And make my video card cry for not requiring her power.

Not to mention the problems with have low, low resolution on our modern high-res displays. SC2 with higher res will making micro management much easier. That being said... blizzard for delaying it again. They were stupid to split it into three games and stupid for nerfing the local lan play. Grrrr....
