They should be available, at least, up to the convention. 

I'll need to check on if they are available after the event, as I don't have an answer to that for this year, but I believe you could purchase them after previously.

They're actually pretty unique, it's awesome! I know they use the engineering skeleton, but they're still awesome.

Hi! Longtime read, first time poster here!

I'm thinking of buying a VTicket. I'll  never get to Blizzcon so this is the next best thing!

The question I have is do I have to watch on my computer? Or can I watch on my TV via my Android box?

 

Thanks!

I don't like the Alliance airships, but the Horde zeppelin is just so good, except I don't really play Horde (and never been able to get into it.)

Can't really justify spending $40 on something like this right now, so I guess I'll just have to miss out on it. :p

I'm not sure how an Android box works (never used one before), but I have only heard bad things in the past while trying to use things like Chromecast etc. There's loads of syncing issues etc. apparently.

      StarCraft II Going Free to Play on Nov 14
    • By Starym
      The base StarCraft 2 game, aka Wings of Liberty, will be free to play from November 14th, as just announced by Mike Morhaime in the BlizzCon opening ceremony! In case you already own Wings of Liberty, you'll be getting the first expansion, Heart of the Swarm for free. No news on what happens to Heart of the Swarm owners or those that have all expansions, but we did get word of a new commanders for the game's co-op mode, Matt Horner and Mira Han, as well as a new co-op mission!
      The competitive ladder will also be part of the free to play version.

      Hello and welcome to the Koprulu Sector!
      We recognize that you might have found your way here after hearing the news that StarCraft II is going free-to-play very soon—on November 14, to be exact. Curious what that actually means? We know “free-to-play” can mean a lot of things for different games, but we’re here to assure you that when we say that we’re making StarCraft II free-to-play, we really mean it.
      Starting November 14, you’ll have free access to the original Wings of Liberty single-player campaign and every Co-op Commander, and will be able to unlock access to StarCraft II’s competitive multiplayer content for free. Here is a specific rundown of everything that will be available to you for free:
      The original Wings of Liberty campaign. Experience the original epic campaign that kicked off the StarCraft II saga! If you picked up Wings of Liberty previously but haven’t come back to StarCraft II in a while, we’ve got good news for you too—if you already own Wings of Liberty, you’ll receive the second installment in StarCraft II’s campaign, the zerg-focused Heart of the Swarm, for free. Make sure to log in between November 8 and December 8 to claim it. You will be able to access the ranked multiplayer ladder to compete with other players to become the best of the best, complete with all of the multiplayer units from Wings of Liberty, Heart of the Swarm, and Legacy of the Void. All you have to do to unlock it permanently is earn 10 First Wins of the Day in Unranked or Versus A.I. play—our way to preserve the quality and integrity of the ranked experience. Current and upcoming Co-op Commanders are available to play for free up to level five, and the level restriction for weekly mutations has been removed. You’ll be able to tackle these extra challenging missions with your friends right away. The Co-op Commanders Raynor, Kerrigan, and Artanis will remain completely free, meaning that you can keep leveling them to your heart’s content. In other words, you can now play all of StarCraft II’s multiplayer, every Co-op Commander, and the entire first campaign in the single-player story, for free.
      If you play through Wings of Liberty and want to see how the rest of the epic single-player saga unfolds, all the other single-player campaigns—Heart of the Swarm, Legacy of the Void, and Nova Covert Ops will be available to purchase individually for $14.99 or as a bundle for $39.99. We will also continue to offer premium upgrades like announcer packs, special skins, and new Co-op Commanders to enhance your StarCraft II experience in a number of different ways. As with the existing line-up of Co-op Commanders, however, you will be able to play upcoming new Co-op Commanders who are released for free until they reach level 5. You can also purchase any of the campaigns or a seasonal War Chest to gain immediate access to ranked play if you desire.
      For those of you who have already purchased any of the three campaigns as of October 31, we’ll soon be sending you a small thank-you in the form of an exclusive Ghost skin as well as three new portraits.
      Welcome to the StarCraft community, and we hope you enjoy diving into the game anew—or for the first time—with all these exciting new changes!
