Starcraft II to introduce global play, multiplayer replays, more
Blizzard will bring a much-requested feature to Starcraft II at or around the launch of Heart of the Swarm, allowing players from different territories to play together.
The post also outed a number of other eSports (or eSports training)-friendly features including resume from replay for multiplayer matches, multiplayer replay viewing and a clan or group system.
Additionally, Blizzard intends to allow unranked matchmaking, and to add in support for multiple languages.
Zerg-centric expansion Heart of the Swarm is expected later this year; you can get a sneak preview at the MLG Spring Championship in June, and those who participate in Blizzard’s Arcade testing will have a better chance at getting into the beta.
