I hate the SC2 Beta...

 
So i'm one of the unlucky people that haven't gotten a SC2 Beta key. I have though, been fortunate enough to have a mate that has it. (He received a friend beta key a couple of weeks ago).
 
I played starcraft for around 5-6 years in a semi-serious role. I lost interest a few years ago to other games (namely WOW). Although that's the case, Starcraft 2 has really piqued my interest since i've played it. Its the same old game in which I fell in love with, but so so much more.  Since I've played the beta, I have been looking up strats at work, and when i get home I watch replays. I see that love for Starcraft returning, more than ever. The main thing in which I hate now, is the fact that I have to wait until release to play the game when I have a mate that is sitting at home playing it now, giving me crap. He was the one that never played Starcraft, and I have to wait while my crack-like addiction festers into something which I cannot bare.
 
Is anyone else in the same boat as myself?
 
FYI, I recently had a look on ebay for a beta key, but $300 is a tad steep...

Well I only started getting interested in playing Starcraft II after all the keys were given out for the closed beta. So unfortunately, I'm also stuck without a beta key. I'd like to start practicing because I keep telling myself this is the game I'm going to finally get MLG pro at. Haha against those super micro Koreans? Yeah, right. I've watched micro-heavy games on youtube I could only dream of playing, and people criticize the matches as being "Starcraft kindergarten."
