    What region are all you guys.

    I'm pretty sure there was already a discussion in a thread somewhere on this but i couldn't find it so... i am asking here.

    I just want to know so i can play some friendlies. Mostly i want to play through the campaign since i started it on trial, but my experience of online play is that it's pretty goddamn boring. I don't mind the competitiveness because i placed diamond in beta (IE i can handle myself and play some good games) but generally it's uncoordinated and unfriendly, especially in more than 1vs1.

    From what i remember there were only like 2 EU guys and 9 US. But i also don't wanna get a US region game only then to have to put up with laggy pub games anyway.

    I have it EU, beatz has, muffin has, owl has, jakkarra has,... And me and beatz are playing it quite often (every 1-2 days) so you can play with us if you want. :p

    US, not played for months though. losing 55% of the time is damn lame.

    There is no lag to the US from the UK, usually it's the US players that lag out too.

    Sounds like i'll go with EU after all then. I have local buddies as well, but they're atrociously bad so i'm weighing up my options :p.

    Anyone know if you can disguise region detection through doing a LAN game via Hamachi? If you can even do LAN at all?

    You can't do LAN in SC2.

    Now i'm starting to remember why i didn't buy SC2 in the first place. Region restrictions, no local networking...

    Saw this on a blog and it made me laugh:

    It's really annoying actually, i was gonna purchase this online because i'm a bit bored and half way through the campaign, but it's £44.49 on battlenet and £37.49 in Game. I guess £7 is worth a night of boredom, I'll probably watch Harry Potter and pretend i'm getting my money back from when i saw it at the cinema.

    I just purchased EU retail at £35.99. Saved myself ~£9. Pretty happy about that.

    I'm EU, but i probably wont be playing it online. It's cool, but not enough so for me to shell out more than £15 or so.

    I just did something retarded: I had to do a re-install of the client just because my original (trial) client was NA and my activation key is EU (So i couldn't play the game despite the fact the game was already installed on my system). So i downloaded the EU client to reinstall it which took about 3 hours... Even though i had the disc in the goddamn box.

    That (embarrasing) hassle out of the way, my battle.net account is grazzer88@hotmail.com for any EU players who wanna add me to their buddies list.
