Starcraft II Beta Second Wave Starts Early March 2010

Were you one of the BlizzCon 2008 attendees who didn’t get a beta invite these past days? Fret not. Blizzard couldn’t accommodate the sheer number of fans into the first wave, but there are plans to launch the second wave of beta invites in two weeks — first week of March approximately. There will be many waves thereafter, so keep your hopes up. I haven’t heard anything about Blizzard fansites contests, but I will inform you when they do.

Blizzard Quote:
Avarius: I wanted to provide an update for players that attended BlizzCon and redeemed their codes, but have yet to receive a beta key invite email. The first wave of invites have already been sent out and a majority of the invites were sent out to BlizzCon attendees. Unfortunately, due to the sheer number of BlizzCon attendees, we could not get everyone in with the first wave. Rest assured that if you did not get into the first wave, you will be included in a future wave, possibly within the next two weeks.

The timing of the next wave will be dependent upon the amount of players that are playing and the load capacity of the servers. Thank you for your understanding and patience through this process.
