The second phase of the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty beta test is now underway. We're delighted to invite you back to the battlefield and hope that you will join us through July 19 for more terran, protoss, and zerg action.
As stated previously, all data from beta phase one has been reset. This includes characters, match history, ladder rankings, and achievements. Beta participants will therefore need to recreate their characters and, if joining matchmaking games, complete a new series of placement matches.
We thank you for all the feedback you provided during phase one and are excited to hear about more of your experiences in phase two. Welcome back to beta, and we'll see you on Battle.net!
[From Another Post] StarCraft II Beta – Patch 16 (version 0.19.0.15976)
Rally points now behave as a move command, instead of an attack move command.

Battle.net Achievements & Rewards have been updated.
All Quick Match modes are now available: 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4, and Free For All.
All A.I. difficulties are now available for play.
Cooperative matchmaking versus A.I. players is now available as a play mode.
Enabled cross-game social features between World of Warcraft and StarCraft II.
IGN: To close, we got a little superficial and delved into graphics. Those who've played the beta (or just watched the videos) know that it looks great, even on a mid-range machine, but will we be able to anti-alias the boxed game when it's released?
Chris S:"No; but we will be releasing 3D in the first few months, for those Nvidia cards and screens that support it," Chris states, before we quickly pursue Nvidia's presence at the event, and ask about those players running ATI cards. We receive a stock but believable response: "we're optimising for all systems."

In fact, I often attempt to deter that act myself - the Blizzhacker 'axiom' is free information and anti-monetiziation the exploitation of the work of others. I, Dark_Mage-, am simply acting well within my legal rights as a blogger (or "journalist" if you will) and if you so choose to engage me, a member or affiliate of the Electronic Frontier Foundation will contact you on my behalf as soon as possible.

Occasionally, interesting files discovered uploaded are sometimes enumerated and discussed. I am simply a "discovery agent" in the 'hacking scene' and have even been long retired from that interest as well as PC gaming all together. This blog is just that: a blog. If you attempt to impede upon my rights to freely discuss criteria loosely based around my interests with threats, or pursue to censor me with stifling, baseless obstruction, there will be consequence and blowback. If I may have journeyed a bit out of the bounds of reason, I will gladly amend my oversight. I have no desire to harm your business model nor am I trying to. If you feel I have stepped over a line at some point, please contact me and we can settle it in a civil manner. I will *never* receive a (DMCA/BayTSP/C&D) letter targeting any files hosted on any sites as I am not the successor to any. Attacking a blogger is not nearly a plausible solution to deterring the act of hacking/cheating, nor is it an effective substitute for fallible anti-cheating mechanisms. Be better than Sony. Be better than EA. And for God's sake, be better than Activisi-- oh, yeah. Well, shit, bros, at least you USED to be Blizzard Entertainment -- that name used to carry respect ya know?
