When I create a game to practice against the AI, it only lets me select 'very easy' and 'easy'. How do I get the other difficulties enabled? Play a certain number of matches? Is it locked until I buy the full game? (Currently playing on the "Starter Edition".)

Q: How do I enable AI difficulties harder than 'easy'?

1 Answer 1


Your hypothesis is exactly right. Quoting from the Starter Edition page, emphasis added:

What are the Starter Edition restrictions?

Starter Edition players cannot:

  • Use versus and co-op matchmaking
  • Publish custom maps to Battle.net
  • Play offline
  • Chat in public chat channels
  • Join or create clans

For single player and custom games, Starter Edition players can only play as Terran. Added AI for custom games is limited to Very Easy and Easy difficulty.
