Blizzard doesn't do a very good job of advertising that fact-and the poorly-titled SCII Starter Edition can be very confusing-but right now, anyone can download a copy of the game and play unlimited custom multiplayer without any restrictions. The only multiplayer mode you can't access with the Starter Edition is the ranked ladder, where top players battle for placement in various leagues and divisions.
