StarCraft II: Wings Of Liberty

StarCraft II patch 2.1 is all about clans

Icons, decals, and event planning

Blizzard has detailed the upcoming StarCraft II patch 2.1 that targets clan players.

An in-game solution for scheduling events for groups and clans now exists, allowing club officers or owners to mark a date, title the event, set the duration, and provide a description all within StarCraft II. Groups are also able to create and upload a custom 255 x 255 club icon, which should get interesting. Some gamers tend to run wild with this kind of freedom of expression.

Going a step further, however, are clan decals. These are only usable by clans and previously showed up flat on the map in such a way that players were making decals that looked like units. Now, Blizzard will display them in-game as a floating icon (shown above).

The patch isn't finished yet, but it's up on the public test realm for testing.
