Haha, I'm in the same boat. One of my friends from college gave me a beta key about 2 weeks before our exams.. he must really want me to fail. :P

Haha. A friend of mine quitted WoW after a lot of time playing. Blizzard sent him the SCII beta. Twice.

Playing a bit is okay, as long as you don't also obsessively watch commentaries when you're not playing.

It probably doesn't make you feel any better, but the beta ends tomorrow I think. Personally I got it and have only played three games so far because I've been really busy.

I'm pretty sure it doesn't, there's nothing on the Team Liquid or Blizzard forums about it. There is a database wipe coming up soon, but you can still play as normal after that, you just have to remake your character.

The Email I got from Amazon wrote:This code will give you access to the StarCraft II beta. This beta will be available through May 17th.

So...? Maybe it's just me? That sucks.

That's weird. I really don't see why they'd give out beta keys that only lasted a certain amount of time. How did you get the key?

If true it would imply that blizzard doesn't care much for people getting beta by pre-ordering for some reason. Only if they get invited will they let them play longer.

It's possible that the email said through May 17th because they weren't sure how long the beta would last, but knew it would be until at least then. It might just be a normal beta key that works like all the rest. Try playing tomorrow and see if it works.

My friend got both Starcraft II and Halo Reach betas a couple of weeks or so before the end of the semester. His marks weren't a(e?)ffected at all. Fucking visual arts.

The May 17th date means that beta keys will no longer be handed out along with pre-orders after that day, not that the beta is ending for anyone.

I believe the beta ends at the end of may.
As for me, I denied a beta key because I knew that it'd fuck me over during exams. Though I have played it.
Besides, the real game comes out in July, so it's not that long of a wait.

Two of my friends, on the other hand, apparently didn't care about exams. One of them has played close to 200 games of SCII beta.
