    Recently Blizzard has update the client with HOTS UI. Which also implemented all new functions including the group and clan making. It's also wise to pick someone (who has the higher power) to control the group in all regions.

    SEA has already patched and running, so I would expect NA will be the same in the next 24 hrs.

    Also, I have created a "temp" group in SEA, still trying to figure out how it works. Group Link in SEA region: starcraft://group/6/42

    EDIT: of course, the public chat channel is still available.

    New? Old* Features that many were spamming for that were in broodwars finally have been featured. Shared replays and clans should've been a thing from day 1 of sc2.

    There's no major change in the UI.
    All they did is remove top button make news smaller and the options you'd have on the mini start arrow bottom left is now left align centered.
