There’s Already A Line For StarCraft II: Heart Of The Swarm In South Korea

A short line, mind you. Just three dudes. But a very heroic line.

It’s no secret that StarCraft is very much a thing in South Korean — and has been for some time. So it should not be surprising to see some of the country’s StarCraft diehards already in line for the game’s upcoming expansion.

These three fellas were complete strangers until they all showed up, days early, at the venue where the Heart of the Swarm‘s launch event will be held on March 12. The expansion pack will also go on sale there. According to Blizzard, there will be 2000 collector’s editions available for purchase.

The high number reflects how Blizzard underestimated the overwhelming demand for collector’s editions during the Diablo III launch event.


Before the launch event on Monday, the same venue is holding the Global Starcraft League finals on Sunday. Guess they’re first in line for that too! Good thing one of them brought a suitcase.

    Please learn to grammar.. Or proofread. You’re a professional journalist for gods sake, and this article is less than a hundred words. Not only that but it’s the 4th or 5th extremely basic proof-checkable grammar mistake i’ve seen in the hour i’ve spent here tonight..

    Have some integrity. Some of us would kill for your job.
