If you run the editor before logging into Battle.net in-game, it will give you a verification prompt. If you log in to Battle.net prior to opening the editor, you won't get that prompt because the game is already validated. If you validated your copy of the game/editor before the beta was closed, you should be able to use the editor indefinitely.
Well once again I miss the boat on an early start with a blizzard editor. Im not going to preorder this game now with this knowledge in hand.
This was what I was planning but I am considering leaving this dream I had of making a map in first 24 hours of release behind unless someone wants to share a CD key so I can download that'd be awesome. Please help my dream come true
That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
