The AI will play anonymously though, so you won't tell if you face it, "to help ensure that all games are played under the same conditions".
Launched in 1998, StarCraft is one of the most popular 1v1 competitive video game series.
These stipulations have been put in place in an effort to ensure that players don't try to adjust strategies to counter AlphaStar. You'll have to opt-in to matches against the AI, but once you do all the normal matchmaking rules apply - AlphaStar will just be another anonymous player on the ladder capable of playing any race, and your MMR will be affected as normal based on the results of the match. "As part of ongoing scientific research into artificial intelligence, players can now opt-in for the chance to be matched against experimental versions of DeepMind's StarCraft II agent, AlphaStar", the official Starcraft Twitter account said on Wednesday. For StarCraft II players who want a stab at AlphaStar, they can tap on the "DeepMind opt-in" button on the 1v1 Versus menu to get a chance and play against the AI.

The DeepMind AlphaStar artificial intelligence (AI) trounced Grzegorz "MaNa" Komincz of Team Liquid back in January 5-0 in a professional match on a competitive ladder.
Many StarCraft fans are also anticipating a possible showdown between AlphaStar and a StarCraft II World Global Champion, although DeepMind has not yet disclosed what might come next for its game-playing bot. However, players won't know if they are playing against AlphaStar or a human opponent. In December, the AI dominated a pair of top-ranked StarCraft players. Some critics believe the AI has unfair advantages when competing against humans, like the ability to digest more raw computer data from the matches, when a person can only rely on what they see from game's graphics. Furthermore, it will only be able to perceive the map using a camera-like perspective. "All limits on AlphaStar's performance were designed in consultation with pro players", the company added.
