It's been a while since we saw how the fan-made MMO built on the bones of StarCraft II is looking. So let's take a look!

Yup. Looking great.

Admittedly, as a man who finds the prospect of playing a traditional MMO as exciting as watching paint...just sit there, on the wall, I love what's being done here. This is a real-time strategy game that's being turned into a multiplayer role-playing title. By fans.

Those interested in the game in a more hands-on sense, you'll be able to play it later today, as it pops up on Battle.net (it's technically a custom game of SCII, not a standalone entity) until the end of the month.
