So basically, f2p players won't get access to the ranked matches? Sounds like a good idea to hype the game to me; SC2 needs a bigger scene and this would be a welcome addition.

Woah wait, you have to pay to play multiplayer for Starcraft?

Wow. That is really stupid.

You have to purchase the game, yes, but there is no monthly fee. What they're talking about here is making some aspects of the multiplayer free, meaning you don't have to purchase the game.

Oh okay.

I'm glad to know Blizzard hasn't yet found a way to try to get the most money out of people.

Eh... World Of Warcraft?

I also found this news confusing. What's wrong with the multiplayer the way it is now?
