The new Arcade game portal promises to bring big improvements to the way we all play custom games. It brings with it a whole swarm of new features, including new search options, Game Info pages that will show you everything you need to know to jump right into the action, and ratings and reviews too. Of course, ratings and reviews are at their most useful when other players have already chimed in to provide their perspectives, and we want to make sure this feature is working great before Patch 1.5 is released. That’s where you come in, because your ratings and reviews could earn you a beta key for StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm while you help us test the Arcade Beta at the same time.
If you want to get into the action, playing the Rate the Game beta contest is easy. First, visit your account management page, download and install the Arcade (1.5.0) Beta product you see in the game accounts section, then hop into the Arcade to play. All you need to do to enter is play, rate, and review an Arcade game. The first time you rate and review a new game each day the contest is running gives you another chance to win, so it pays to visit every day until the contest ends. At the end of the contest period we’ll randomly choose 250 eligible contestants to win StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm beta keys!
Please remember that you’ll need an active StarCraft II account in good standing to win, and be sure to read the rules before you get started.
