Kinda like age of empires online... you do get decent content for free, not mutch, but it is free ^_^ click
 
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.
 
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 !

    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...

    I'm not so sure, there's still a lot of Thursday left for it to become unhappy.
