Warcraft 2 isn't for sale anymore on Blizzard's store, but I would like to play the version. Is it still playable on, or is online play no longer supported?

The version still works online. You might have issues finding people to play with but you are still able to connect. You won't be able to join a chat room however (probably just thevoid - which if you remember is the channel you went to when kicked or banned out of a channel) which happened when bots were emulate Warcraft II and Diablo I. Such fun. But I did play a game of Warcraft II online on about a year ago. But had a decent wait to find someone!

If it's the same as Diablo 1 you can still create custom channels, they just have to start with the usual blabber. So I could join "Diablo Retail LE" for example, or probably "Warcraft II High School" or whatever. – Decency Jan 4 '13 at 14:44

While Blizzard's tech support info is sometimes out-of-date, playing on and resolving issues with it is mentioned repeatedly in their tech support docs for Warcraft II. Due to this, I would expect that it can still be played on
