Lucky StarCraft II Beta Gamers Can Invite Friends

Know someone in the StarCraft II beta right now? It might be time to be their best friend, as there's a chance that he or she might have a spare beta invite key at his or her disposal.

According to Kotaku, Blizzard has recently started sending out beta invites for its current beta testers to award to their best gaming buds.

On the other side of the equation, those of you who have a spare StarCraft II beta invite may suddenly find yourself at a heightened level of popularity. Please choose wisely who you gift the invite to, even if he or she may be the highest bidder.

    Need more people to make the game more fun. Right now it's ladder only 2v2 and the guys who are playing are obviously "pros." I guess I suck but I'm like 14-34 or something right now. Oh well.

    Well, from what I can tell a lot of people, is not everyone got a key to give out. Judging from the player numbers basically doubling. They hovered around 5000 online at any given time.

    Ahh, no love for me Blizzard? Even after giving you $500-750 over the years? Ha.
    Cool idea though. Have fun everyone.
