...In case you lot haven't been paying attention to Blizzard, StarCraft II is now free. Like, totally. Well, sort of... You actually get, by my understanding:

-The entire Wings Of Liberty campaign. That is, the original SCII campaign at launch.

-All multiplayer content. That is, free play, competitive ladder, arcade, all co-up campaigns (I think).

So if you want anything you had to buy before, or Heart of the Swarm, or Legacy of the Void - the two expansions/other campaigns - then you'll have to buy them, but if you want to get in on the RTS fun, there should be more than enough content.

Oh, and for the Windows users in the crowd, the original Starcraft and its expansion, Brood War, have been free for a while now and work fine on modern PCs. Blizzard doesn't advertise it very loudly - they're trying to sell you the remastered version, after all - but it's available in the downloads on your account if you dig a bit. So, if you want to party like it's 1998, go right ahead.

Discussion? Requests for multiplayer partners? Talking about RTS? Fun map suggestions?
