  1. Battle.net itself has no subscriber fee, and according to what Blizzard has said in the past never will. What youre paying for is the WOW specific subscription.

  6. As for subscription access, it only applies in South Korea, and only in limited settings. They have the option of buying unlimited access for the same price we do. They also get free play if they have an active WoW subscription, can buy $1.50 day passes, pay $1 an hour in cybercafes, and buy $8 30-day passes.

    So, no, there is no additional charge for playing the game if you buy the retail box, no matter where in the world you are.

  7. Battle.net access with Starcraft 2 can either be time limited, or unlimited depending on what region you live in.
    Generally most people have the unlimited version which grants access to the game and battlenet with no additional fee, ala WoW.
    However there are some regions they are planning on deploying a subscription based plan where, like WoW you pay on a regular basis for access to the game.
