Comprised primarily of impatient fans interested in the game, CWAL contributed to the Blizzard community through works of fiction on the battle.net forums in which StarCraft was completed but it was being held up in an evil plot by Blizzard Entertainment's management, which was bent on world domination, with CWAL being an organization attempting to liberate the StarCraft CD.
Blizzard mentions Operation CWAL in the Special Thanks section of the StarCraft manual. The in-game cheat "operation cwal" rapidly increases the rate of unit production.
In the art for the StarCraft 20th anniversary celebration, "CWAL" appears on the camera in the top right of the image.
