StarCraft Alphas or Betas

Post by Frozenport »

Any of you guys got some StarCraft alphas or betas? Maybe even StarCraft 2?

The only one I know of is the late beta that was leaked one or two years ago...

Anybody got any download links to the really old stuff... Although anything would be nice.

I dont think anyone even have them, it's 10 years ago.
Maybe blizzard still has them on their 10 year old collection.

SC2 is not going to leak for a while. It's under VERY heavy security.

Not to mention Blizzard is made of only 12 developers. I doubt such a small team would leak anything.

Blizzard never leak anything peroid, even if they do, it would be a minor leak. Unlike microsoft, having employee stealing code everyday.

To my understanding there was a leak and I remember back on OSBA that people were talking about how their torrent download was stuck @ ~60%...

Its out there, I am just wondering if anybody has it.

It was the same build as in the link posted above (I just noticed the link in the instruction page above is broken). I still have it, I can upload it if you want.

Technically, it wasn't leaked. It was an open (at least to Blizzard associates) beta.

That build is from about 6 months prior to the official release, and isn't too different. It only works with Battle.net (that's why you have to run your own server to make it work), and most of the units are the same as the retail. There are some differences, though. The Wraith, for example, doesn't cloak at all, and you have to develop its missiles in order to make it fire on air targets.

I wish I could get the Warcraft II based alpha.

YEah, that starcraft beta was a beta test. I believe cds were mailed out with that build on it. All blizzard betas, such as WoW betas that leaked are open/close betas, not leaks.
