StarCraft Universe: The “MMO” That Blizzard Let Live

StarCraft Universe [official site], the free multiplayer RPG that has been built as a StarCraft II mod, is finally due to come out next month, after an eventful 5-year development. On top of that, the open beta is now live and can be played through the StarCraft II Arcade right now. You can even play with its free Starter Edition. It's been a strange ride…

Kickstar(craf)ter: StarCraft Universe Goes To Kickstarter

Hmmm, well, this is sort of an odd situation. Once upon a time, Blizzard nearly fired a legal laser straight through the heart of StarCraft Universe's ¬†modswarm, but now - a couple years later - the multiplayer RPG is alive, well, and on Kickstarter. The project apparently still has Blizzard's blessing, given that it's fan-made and will be distributed entirely for free. However, somewhat paradoxically,…

World Of StarCraft StarCraft Universe

Were you following the World Of StarCraft debacle a few weeks back? Dude says he's making an MMO using the StarCraft map makerer, says he's calling it World Of StarCraft.

While the unwise 'World of StarCraft' name was, unsurprisingly, key to the issue, a comment from modder Ryan Winzen suggests…

Good News For World Of StarCraft Modder

If you're going to get bullied, get bullied in public. People notice. If you've followed the story of the World Of StarCraft mod, you'll know that a mod team picked a really dumb name for their ambitious MMO project, and Activision-Blizzard went down the tiresomely dumb route of banning the existence of videos of the work in progress from the internet. But here comes the…

Blizzard Squishes ‘World of StarCraft’ Mod

So apparently it's not cool to make StarCraft mods with the StarCraft modkit - or at least not if you call them 'World of StarCraft.' That name was just begging for trouble, let's be honest. Duly, trouble happened, it happened fast and it happened hard. After becoming a brief internet sensation, the creator of the StarCraft 2 MMO mod we posted about yesterday woke up…

StarCraft II+Modders+Techno = StarCraft MMO

This mod serves two purposes. 1) It makes StarCraft II into an MMO, which quite naturally is to be known as World of StarCraft. 2) If it gets taken down really, really quickly that means we've got proof Blizzard is working on their own StarCraft MMO after all! Probably. Maybe. Probably not.
