    The ability to play right off the bat with no massive day 1 patches and all servers being stable would be its biggest feature. I can only hope.

    Seriously stoked about this expansion! I will be digging into multi-player immediately. Will play the campaign when I have time. Regarding features, I think global play is really awesome! Makes the scene a lot more competitive.

    How was the launch of this? I’m really surprised that there hasn’t been article about it the whole day 😛 Was thinking that the whole day would just be about HOTS.
