Starcraft Brood War Patch 1.18

Recommended Posts

Greetings Commanders, Cerebrates, and Executors,

 

We're proud to announce that StarCraft will be patched for the first time in over 8 years today. The patch will go live at 2:00 PM PDT.

 

When patching, please use the 'Run as Admin' option; it is required during your first client run to migrate saves and avoid issues from Windows system admin changes.

 

StarCraft will be free with this patch as well. We'll add a link here when the patch is live.
