Great justice news for those who wanted Lan (Local Are Network) play for Starcraft 2 today. The Chinese have released a Starcraft II Lan Client recently called Starfriend. I am sure the 263,141 people that signed the Lan in Starcraft 2 Please Petition years ago are very happy to hear this news. As of now it is only usable for the TW version of Starcraft II. It is confirmed to be working and of course in time the English version will be coming. Blizzard announced it would not support Lan when Starcraft 2 would come out and angered a lot of their fans. They blamed piracy for it but that did not stop anyone from pirating it. Great news indeed. Battle net lags for some and ruins the experience. The internet is not perfect and not having Lan in games only punishes its legitimate customers. Taking out features is not going to make a good incentive for people to buy something.
EDIT: Some Youtube videos have even shown up about it.
West Coast Productions, Inc. v. Does 1-5,829 Minor Update
More people got dismissed from this case. It is past the due date the judge implemented too. No word from the judge yet though on whether she will be allowing Ellis L. Bennet’s motion for more time to server does. It does not make sense to allow him more time but you never know with this judge. Ellis L. Bennet will probably have to post a list of more does dismissed if the judge sticks to her earlier ruling of a due date in order to serve does. No court documents have been posted yet except to dismiss a couple of does.
