Starcraft 2 Beta Going on Hiatus

 Battle.net forums has stated the close of the Starcraft 2 Beta.. for now.

We’d like to let all of our StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty beta test participants know that the first phase of the beta test will be coming to an end in all regions on Monday, May 31. The beta test will be unavailable for several weeks while we make some hardware and software configuration changes in preparation for the final phase of the beta test and the release of the game. We plan to bring the beta test back online for a couple of weeks prior to the game’s launch to complete our testing. We’ll have more details to share about when this final beta-testing phase will begin at a later date.

We’d like to thank all of our beta-test participants for your enthusiasm, dedication, and valuable feedback during the beta test, and we look forward to hearing more of your thoughts on the StarCraft II beta test as the game’s July 27 launch approaches.”

I’ve been having loads of fun in the Starcraft II Beta. I’m comfortable with a few builds and strats as my main race and steadily climbed my noobie self out of copper and through bronze into the teen rankings of silver. I’m very excited for release, and ergo, heartily crushed by this news.

I expect were looking at a 6 week drought before we can get going with the final two weeks of Beta followed closely by release.

It was mentioned they were looking to put 3v3 and 4v4 matches into the beta mid-May. This gives me some hope that well be able to try that out before Beta goes down in two weeks. Another highlight is the fact that we will have a 3 day weekend to really see the Beta out with a bang.

If all else fails I can keep sneaking impatient peaks at my preorder receipt hiding under my keyboard. No one will ever find it there… no one.
