SC2 is good. But remember it's still in Beta. There are still bugs, balance issues, ladder issues and resets, and changes to come with teh final release of the game.

But, it's good. I'm loving it so far!

I registered for the Beta and got accepted 4 days later, when some mates have been waiting MONTHS! hahaha! Maybe it was my old PC that did it. I upgraded a week later though :P

Wow! Imagine working for blizzard. Would be the ultimate dream for me. I asked blizzard once if I could be a GM for WoW. Yea i know i was pushing it but i would love to be a GameMaster in WoW would prefer that than playing the game like i do atm. Anyways to my surprise i got an email back with them telling me just keep trying as we place ads on our site for GM every now and then, they even told me where to look for it - if one comes up apply for it and we will consider your application. I was stunned to tell the truth as i didn't expect a reply back. I check WoW's site every so often to see if a GM is up for grabs.

OMG I <3 Blizzard Entertainment so much, I'd love to work there or find an environment like that in NZ. (Fingers crossed I win lotto and get to create my 3D animation)
