Its a step in the right direction, but i would prefer something different.

My idea of what they should try to do is "friendship" accounts.
lets say i have a starcraft 2 account but i want to play with a friend of mine, or maybe my brother. but they dont want to buy another copy of the game just for one or two games with me.

so how would it be if i could buy a friendship account and add it to my current account, it would be like 6$ or 10$ and my friend or brother would only be able to play games with me.
they could only play online if i am online and they could only join games in which i joined. i would like this.
what would you guys say? maybe i could write an e-mail to blizzard and ask them to implement this.

@Accname that sounds like a great idea. I know some of my friends who would be interested in getting into SC2 with something like that.
 

D.V.D

My internet was down today and I couldn't play offline, it told me you can't play offline or as a guest on sc2 starter edition but I bought a actual copy of the game o_O

I have a similar problem with offline playing, on my PC it works most of the time, but when i try to play offline on my laptop it always tells me i have to log in with the account at least 1 time before i can play offline Oo.

DRM? Before a few months ago I was able to play offline or as a guest. Didn't think blizzard would want a constant connection.
I think they allow you to play offline only on the computer that most recently connected to B.net

either way, it is a DRM

I would also like a way of playing with/vs a guest like with most console games

If its working correctly, you only need to log on every 30 days to use offline play.

There as been an error circulating recently were your game will be falsely marked as a starter edition, which can prevent you from using the editor, offline mode, or Battle.net - though usually not all three. In some cases its if your system clock is off, in other cases you need to run the game as in administrator\use the repair tool, or it just plain never gets fixed or goes away by itself. >_<

This sounds very professional, exactly how i imagine blizzard to work.

To be honest the offline version has worked flawless for me every time I used it. I was suspecting the starter edition a bit, but blizzard have taken care of it. yay Blizzard !

    Hm, it is now harder to type anything on an Android phone. Pressing Backspace or Enter keys will dismiss the Android keyboard for some reasons.
