I still have hope.  They still have to release the mac beta, and as there are fewer mac players there will be fewer applicants to pull from.  They may also have fewer mac beta testers, but they will still require a pretty large pool, so my chances are probably better than the average PC user.

They would need fewer Mac testers because they are drawing from only a handful of prepackaged systems.

The article mentions they have about 9000 of their goal of 10000 testers, I wonder if the remaining 1000 will be mac testers.

I have been watching a lot of beta VoDs/Shoutcasts and two units that I have almost never seen are Banelings and Carriers, any thoughts on why this is?

I think you don't see banelings because it's just too easy to rush roaches and mass hydralisks.

As for carriers, I don't see what their role is. Seriously, in what situation would you want to use them?

Some decent baneling use in this replay, however it is completely overshadowed by the ravens hunterkiller missles.

Edit: Beta keys selling for 100-300$ on ebay.  Funny stuff: http://cgi.ebay.ca/STARCRAFT-2-BETA-KEY-INVITATION-PLAY-NOW-/110499461714

I feel kinda sorry for the zerg player for being stuck with a turtler, heh.

Those sentry force fields are awesome for messing with an opponents gameplan though :D And the nydus network! Oh man the shenanigans you can pull with that :D I wish I had one in supcom :(


Definitely gonna have to buy this game. I hope my laptop can run it.
YARR!

Yeah one big problem with the game in its current state is Terran's inability to quickly come to the aid of their allies.  Zerg can nydus in, if they have a proxy pylon protoss can warp in, or recall with a mothership.

they actually came out with a cracked version of sc2 for those of you interested, and if you mod it up the computer AI is enough of a challenge to make playing the game worth it. Nonetheless cannot wait for release =D

We are all aware of the third-party software developments related to StarCraft II.
