Pest Control
Spawning Pool Party is the promotional episode in the second season of StarCrafts.

Plot Edit

Four marines march in and spots a spawning pool behind the hatchery, where zerglings, roach, Derpfestor, infested terrans and overlord are having fun. They join the pool party. First marine plays a volleyball (infestor's fungal growth ball) with an infested one and gets splattered, so the infestor generously gives his marine a spare ball. Second marine dives in as a cannonball. Third floats on a swim ring but is pounced down by a zergling who shakes dry and goes off, and the marine is chased down by a baneling from underwater. And, fourth sunbathes beside the pool on a recliner with a reflector.

Ultralisk rushes in and jumps onto the spawning pool, trapping two marines, an infested marine and a zergling, capsizing the fourth marine from the chair, and making the infestor burrowed. As the ultralisk turns around, its claw topples an umbrella. Inviting guests, Bob the Ragelot and a stalker, are upset at this "party crashing." So the stalker crawls away, and the zealot throws off his ducky ring and departs, disgusted. The ultralisk licks the lower pool's green ooze happily without a contempt.

The starting players can download the "Starter Edition" of StarCraft II from, can share with a friend in a spawning party to grant full access to WoL and its arcades, custom maps, play modes and rank ladder matches, and can be spawned up with HotS version that one owns. However, the starter players can play HotS expansion until their party no longer includes any higher-expansion players. Full details can be found here.
