    Ah! Should've known it was that...
    Great, a game I've never played :p
    You can't switch servers? Hmm. Do you have a screenshot of the multiplayer window you look at?

    Doh!

    So its just a single player beta then?

    Wing Commander 3... A classic series.
    Got them all. And Privateer 2: The Darkening with the English actor Clive Owen (plays the main character Ser Lev Arris)

    Warcraft 3 Beta?

    Did you sign up for it on Blizzard's homepage? I am pretty sure it is single player only, which kinda sucks. But hopefully they will release the game soon! I saw a preview of it over 2 years ago in PC Gamer, and now they have changed it so much, I don't know if it looks any good.

    So, henrychieng, can you play single payer? And if so, is it cool? From the screenshots it looked as if it is a lot more like WC2 than the preview I was years back in PC Gamer.

    Ah well, i wish i had gotten the beta :(

    What? I thought the beta was Battle.Net ONLY, meaning a multiplayer test to tweak the balance...

    The Warcraft 3 Beta is indeed Multiplayer only. If I remember correctly, you are not supposed to be able to change the server. With that said, editing the registry or downloading one of the many programs can allow you to do this. You can use a search engine to search for this.
