G4TV interviewed the Starcraft II Team in celebration to the release of Starcraft II Closed Beta which started today. The first video has Greg Canessa (Battle.net Project Director) talks about support for map and mod-makers, eSports plans, and a Leagues & Ladders system. He mentions pro-league for the best players to compete which offers special privileges.
Dustin Browder goes on about the current gameplay balance and Chris Sigaty & Rob Pardo discuss the future of Battle.net and Starcraft II closed beta.
