Season 2 Start Date Announced!

by JGGiant on

There’s some big news today for those that have been enjoying Diablo 3’s seasons. Season One, as was previously reported, is set to end at 4:00 PM PST on Tuesday, February 3rd in North America. With this right around the corner, many were wondering when Season Two would be getting under way. Well wonder no more, as Blizzard has just confirmed that Season Two will begin ten days later, February 13th at 6:00 PM PST. As someone who has been a little lax with their Seasonal character, I’ve been hitting the grind hard since the end date was announced. It’s good to know that Blizzard will be giving myself and others like me a decent vacation before we start anew in Season 2. Remember, we have one weekend left so get to those Nephalem Rifts, people!  Greetings, nephalem! Season 1 is about to draw to a close, and we wanted ...

Tinker Rogue Deck

Episode 47: Tinker Rogue Deck This might be the worst deck we’ve ever played.  I’m giving you the heads up. It was also a featured deck on a very well known website.  But, with the good decks, come the bad.  We did alright with it, but it’s definitely not the deck of choice for rank 13 with 5 days left in the season.  We hope you enjoy and get some laughs!

How To Tweet From Patch 6.1

by Crow on

Today’s PTR build implemented the integration with Twitter that we’ve been hearing about, and while the system clearly has some rough edges to buff out, it’s already in a pretty good spot. First off, keep in mind that the Twitter integration is very much opt-in: the hooks for opening the UI don’t show up until you’ve linked up your Twitter account, and even after that, you need to trigger a tweetable event for those hooks to show up. Right now, those tweetable events are one of the following: Loot a rare or epic item. This may include buying it. Take a screenshot. Earn an achievement. Clicking on the icon that shows up next to the trigger in the chat window will open the new UI, which also behaves differently based on what you’re tweeting. Looting an item will populate a tweet with a link to the item’s page on the battle.net ...

New Patch Notes, Undertaker Fix Is In

by Crow on

Hearthstone was patched earlier today with a few iterative changes, but the big news was the Undertaker nerf announced recently. The patch is already deployed and live on the servers. Bring out your dead. Aside from the Undertaker fix, and the Maraad cardback for this month’s seasonal play, there’s also a great fix for purchasing packs that will prevent players from buying a ton of Classic Packs when they meant to get GvG. It’s a long overdue change, but we’re still glad it’s here. Read the full patch notes below. General The following card backs have been added to Hearthstone: Maraad Card Back: Acquired by reaching Rank 20 or higher in Ranked Play mode during the month of January. (zhCN/koKR/zhTW) Celebrate the Lunar New Year in Hearthstone! Heroes will say “Happy New Year” instead of “Hello” when emotes are used. Card packs in the in-game Shop no longer default to ...

With closed beta invites going out a lot of people are going to be entering the Nexus. Some of you may have never played a MOBA and might need tips on how to survive. No worries, though, because BlizzPro is here to help! Today we will break down The Garden of Terror. The Garden of Terror is divided into two phases: day and night. During the day it is a standard 3 lane map with mercenary camps. When it turns to night is when the real fun starts.  Creep camps appear in the top and bottom forest with each forest containing two small camps of 3 seedlings and 1 plant boss in the center. You and your team must finish off these camps in order to collect seeds. Once your seed count hits 100 you can summon the Garden Terror. The Garden Terror is controlled by one player and gains ...

Defining Your Goals

by JR Cook on

In this week’s episode of Real Life Respec I rant a bit about perceptions people have regarding fansites and other content creators and point out that if this was all about the money, then people are doing it wrong. We talk about how to handle the grind which was the discussion last week and this week I ask the question, how do you go about defining your goals? I’m close to reaching my 10 pound lost goal and I want to start thinking about the big picture. What steps do you take? What have you learned from playing games that could help you in real life?

Handling the Grind

by JR Cook on

In this week’s episode of Real Life Respec I discuss some more about Extra Life, how to join our team, and how difficult it is to handle the daily grind. Sometimes it can be tough to look at the bigger picture and wish the progress would show up sooner. I talk about a video that inspired me this week about a guy who wanted to work for Blizzard but needed to reach legendary status. He finally did it after 7 months. What’s cool about it is what inspired him was an article from BlizzPro, so it’s kind of come full circle.

Snuggles Control Priest Deck

Episode 46: Snuggles Control Priest Deck This week (once we get past a bumpy last minute intro) we have a fairly legendary heavy Priest control deck called “Snuggles”.  However a lot of them are swappable and the deck still remains solid.  If you’re into Heroes of the Storm be sure to check out the Heroes Power Hour on Tuesday nights as well!  We hope you enjoy!

Season 1 Map Pool Changes

by JR Cook on

Due to some community demand some map pool changes have been made for the upcoming Season 1. Instead of Foxtrot Labs they are bringing back Overgrowth LE for another season. To read more about what community manager Psione posted on the forums, take a look here: Hey everyone, We’ve read the feedback on the 2015 Season 1 ladder map pool and wanted to announce a change we’ll be making for the upcoming season. 2015 Season 1 Ladder Overgrowth LE will replace Foxtrot Labs LE The complete 1v1 2015 Season 1 ladder map pool will be as follows: Overgrowth LE Catallena LE Expedition Lost LE Secret Spring Vaani Research Station Inferno Pools Deadwing LE While we typically look to remove the oldest maps in the ladder map pool to keep a fresh rotation (which would include Overgrowth LE), community feedback towards some of the Season 3 maps was less than favorable ...

For those of you laddering on StarCraft 2, the Season 4 for 2014 has now been locked and will be until Season 1 for 2015 begins on January 12. For those of you who are new to StarCraft, each year is divided up into 4 seasons and each season has new 1v1 maps. To check out the new maps for Season 1 2015 click here. More information about the season lock and the upcoming season below: At the end of each ladder season, leagues are “locked,” which means players can no longer be promoted out of their current league or division, and bonus pools will stop growing. The ladder lock is a time to play more than ever before: with the leagues being locked, players are able to play out their remaining bonus pool and compete for standing within their divisions until the season ends. The matchmaking skill ratings which ...
