Starcraft 2 NDA lifted

Just got this email from Hicks (who is in the beta that lucky bastard) who has informed me that Blizzard has lifted the NDA on their new RTS. This tells me that they are happy with the game overall in its current state and to me it seems that they are moving to tweaks and unit balance now. This is my guess as to why the beta is being expanded.

We have uploaded some Starcraft 2 beta shots to our FLICKR account here

We’re pleased to announce that we have decided to lift the confidential nature of the StarCraft: II Beta Test. This means that beta testers are free to show and discuss the game with your friends, as well as take screenshots, record gameplay videos, etc. So feel free to share that amazing game you just played. Enjoy!
