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. caesar5285 - 10 years ago
Unless you count paying for your internet an additional cost, No they don't charge you for it, unless your region is time limited. Swiftelf (Expert) - 10 years ago

In case you were unaware, There is a CD-key that is attached (permanently) to a battle.net account (either you make one then, or use a pre-existing one).

There will be no fee for battle.net. When you purchase SC2 you will receive a CD Key, this key will allow you to create One account to use online to play SC2. I_Like_Toast - 10 years ago
It comes with a CD-Key. It also requires you to have a battle.net account, you can make one for free at battle.net. once you log in to battle.net you attach your CD-Key to your account and use that as your login to the online portion of the game robbymuffin - 10 years ago
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. heffroncm - 10 years ago
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. stpk4 - 10 years ago
