Just to make it clear, StarCraft 2 has not gone free-to-play, but Blizzard is in the process of contemplating it for multiplayer. I'm certain there are better minds than mine in their employ, but I don't see a reasonable way to implement that sort of financial structure without compromising the play and competitive integrity. It is the preeminent product in the competitive eSports arena, and even a hint of the nonsense in today's comic would surely cause a massive uproar.
