Why is there a referral link to anrdoezrs.net buried in that link?

EDIT: Nevermind. It's apparently no big deal. See below.

I just used the insert link icon, I think the anrdoezrs.net might be a referral link to benefit the forum maybe.

Yeah I'm still on the mission where you control a Ghost. I started that mission back in 2010, played a bit last year because the save file didn't work with achievements, so played like half n hour more. I have yet to beat that mission and I don't even play online anymore since 2010. Well at least I plan to play this game again in the future, unlike Diablo 3 which has no lasting value for me.

Hmm, that's strange. I have no idea if it's anything suspicious. I've never heard of anrdoezrs.net until I saw it in your link. A google search doesn't pick up any red flags.

Just in case though, here is the link to Starcraft 2 without the anrdoezrs.net referral link.

EDIT: Now I'm seeing the anrdoezrs.net thing in my link too. *Shrugs* Maybe it is something to do with this site. Sorry about derailing this thread. Great price on Starcraft 2.

^ I just checked other Newegg threads and they have the same link issue. I think the link gets added to any Newegg deal, so CAG gets referral money. Your link also got it too lol.

I'm pretty sure that has been the auto referral link at least for Newegg that benefits CAG's business coffers for quite a long time.

At least 3 years if not longer.

Anyways that might be the price I can't resist picking up Starcraft II for. Thanks OP.

Commission Junction (who owns www.anrdoezrs.com) pays referral kickbacks to sites like CAG. CAG auto-modified posted links to add CAG referral kickbacks.

I've had Starcraft since launch, great game. I highly recommend the single player campaign though I wouldn't recommend going multiplayer unless you plan on sinking massive amounts of time into it.

I'm holding off on the heart of the swarm until it's around $20. I can wait a year or two.

Kinda cause I bought 2 months after for $30 with an Overwhelming Offers Tigerdirect deal. I wish I got the game for $10 like my brother did when Toys R Us clearanced the game.

Good price, I got it for the same price from Amazon when it was one of the lightning deals. Can't say I don't recommend it for this price.

I got this, Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 in the Toysrus $10 sale...I still haven't played this one. How good is it? I'm a huge Command & Conquer fan, played a little Warcraft and Age of Empires, but never really Starcraft.

Excellent price, but the 'flaws' that aren't getting patched are still a deal breaker for me :(

I'm still on the fence at this price. $18 for the game seems good but a part of me knows that due to my backlog I should wait off and just buy the game during a winter sale when it'll be $10. The MP don't interest me and I'd rather play the SP Campaign.

I don't think the game will drop to $10 any time soon on a sale. Maybe in a few years when they do a deal where you might be able to do a deal for $20 - $40 for this game + Heart of the Swarm expansion pack or if any other place does a clearance for the game.

Blizzard is pretty stingy on the price of their games. Startcraft 2 was one of the first PC titles to start at the $60 price point, but that's nothing. What is worthy of note was that the game continued to fetch $60 a full 2 years after release. Getting it for $20 off the usual $40 price is a steal. I don't think it will ever fall to the $10 price point. More than likely Blizzards next move in a couple years is to bundle it with swarm for a battlechest price of $40.

so you'd recommend buying it today and then waiting for a deal down the road when HoTS is about $20 ?

I while recommend buying this at this price. It might be literally years until its this cheap.

This is a very good game, if only for the superb single player. It's a lot of fun, and some missions are very well done and a lot of fun.

Now playing: Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (XB1), Dark Souls (PC), Starcraft 2 (PC), Infamous: Second Son (PS4), Dead Rising 3 (XB1), Rouge Legacy (PSV).

Haven't played a Startcraft I or Warcraft III in forever. I was interested in this game when it came out and this price got me to bite. I haven't bought a physical PC game in forever. Does this run out of steam?

You are kidding right?
Blizzard doesn't release a lot of games outside of WoW expansions and they have their own thing. Its called Battlenet. :)

Not trying to give you a hard time, I know some people haven't played Diablo 3 or Starcraft 2 yet and just assume that they would put it out on Steam as well.

I'm having trouble using the code. It seemed to work until I logged in and filled out my payment information (review order step was when I got a note "there's a problem with code").
