    I'm sure some of you have noticed, but you can now register your cd keys to an account here and have the games available to download whenever you need them. This is convenient as I've long since lost my SC/BW and WC3/TFT cds; but not the cases.

    Took me less than 30 minutes to register an account, dig out my cd cases, register each cdkey, and download Warcraft 3 + TFT, Starcraft + BW and install all of them. They even come pre-patched.


    Sorry to disappoint, nothing illicit here :twisted:



    *edit*

    If the downloads aren't lightning fast, uncheck the 'Enable Peer-to-Peer' tab on the downloader and your speed should skyrocket.

    Great idea. I've been a fan of any kind of digital distribution for a while now.
