Blizzard to link StarCraft II multiplayer regions

StarCraft II players worldwide will soon have access to a bigger pool of players, Blizzard’s announced.

The developer has announced that it’ll be linking together a handful of regions; “In conjunction with the start of Season 3, we’ll be linking the European and Russian StarCraft II communities together; North America and Latin America will also be linked together, as will Korea and Taiwan,” it’s written over at the official site.

This benefits the automated matchmaker and gives players access to more custom map games, as well as a bigger audience to custom map makers.

The change is said to be seamless once the new season starts on July 25.
