Our sister site, StarcraftWire reports chinese websites are echoing the appearance of a mysterious countdown at the NetEase website. NetEase will operate Starcraft II, World of Warcraft and Battle.net in Mainland China—which rises the question: Is this countdown related to StarCraft II beta in China?
The background artwork on the countdown page resembles the tease image of Wrath of the Lich King’s announcement at Blizzcon 2007, except the eyes look Protoss-ish. It is unknown what the countdown is for. We will have to wait until May 6 to find out if it is Blizzard related or not.
