Basically i finally found my old starcraft 1 and brood war discs and found out they are both scratched beyond repair... How do I obtain a new copy of starcraft... If not then what would be my best option; I've listed some suggestions people have made.

-Clean the Cd (worked somewhat but still doesn't work)
-Buy the digital copy
-Buy starcraft 2 collector edition
-Find it in the store (its harder then you think :hurr:)

OVERWATCH STATUS GO

You don't need to buy it again if you still have the CD key, as far as I know. Create or log into a Battle.net account and just add your key to it. Then you can download it again without having to pay again.

Don't they replace broken CDs free of charge?

Blizzard does nothing free of charge these days.

Does any company ever replace broken products free of charge after YOU broke it?



None.

This. If you don't know your CD key, there's software out there that can extract it from your current SC install.

If, for some reason, you can't do the above, either download a "portable" version of SC (these typically don't require that you have a CD) or try and get your hands on a disk image for the CD.

Sure it's pretty common among software companies to replace broken discs out of goodwill. You bought a license to use the software and not the data carrier which is only a few ct. I'm just not sure if Blizzard is still that awesome. Can't hurt to ask at least.

EDIT:
Here you go (for WoW at least but I'm sure the terms aren't different for sc)

All you have to pay is $10 for shipping and handling.

Just go on battle.net and register your cd key under your account (like what devlin said). It's the easiest and most logical thing to do. If you don't have your cd key, then I don't even know why you're trying to "repair" the discs.

FYI, those disc repair things with toothpaste and peanut butter are complete bullshit.

I pledge my life and honor to the Meme's Watch, for this meme and all the memes to come.

Vrael shouted: Oh_Man you kinda missed those minor details about how fundamental rights are baked into democratic systems so you actually have power to change the system (to whatever degree you wanna argue), whereas in other systems your only option is "no u", aka it's not an illusion of choice
Vrael
Vrael shouted: not really two-party-system specific but it was kinda a big deal when those old guys wrote about "unalienable rights" and that stuff
one party systems have constitutions and human rights clauses too. I don't understand how you can claim they're exclusive to democracies. Have you already forgotten democracies used slaves, didn't let women vote, etc.?
