    Only those with SEA accounts can login to the NA servers. I assumed Blizzard only did this because SEA is relatively low populated and were giving them an opportunity to play with more people. Remember the Korea is a separate server entirely (Korean law basically requires it).

    I still had 2 pay for my NA account. I think people had free access 2 NA server if they bought a copy b4 2011.

    I got my copy at the start of 2012, so I think you get free access to NA server if you buy a SEA copy of Starcraft.

    It's like this... You make an account and you register your copy of Starcraft, then it gives you an option of adding an NA Starcraft key on your account for free.

    The reason is because the SEA community (mainly aussies) whinged about the high pings and latancy to the location of the SEA server hosted in Singapore. Blizzard conceded access to the NA servers after awhile which has better ping for some people

    Sea= NA + Sea
    NA = NA

    That's all there is to it.

    I had to buy myself another copy of SC2 just a month ago and I still was able to access the NA server freely. :)
