Games these days, I've noticed, have grown harder and harder to pirate. I'm not saying it can't be done, it's easily possible to make copies of Starcraft 2, but you can't play online with it. So, if you get a copy of the game from some nice torrent site or a local pirate, you can only play with yourself. What blizzard does is include a unique ID system for each copy of game, so you can only create one online user profile for each ID. That way, nobody else can use that particular copy.It's virtually impossible to play on the official online site without getting an original copy of the game, which costs 3000 pesoses.
I think I'm going to spend the latter of the night doing further 'research' on this new game..
