Hunter Control Deck

by JR Cook on

Episode 52: Hunter Control Deck This week we take a stab at Control Hunter. We made some changes to the deck mid-way through the episode. The deck does alright but it’s tough in such an aggro heavy meta. But that’s to be expected the first week of the season! Also, we are taking the money donated by our Patrons and buying Doghouse Systems Computers!

In an article over on VentureBeat, Ion “Watcher” Hazzikostas gave out a few more critical details about the game-time-tokens-for-gold system that Blizzard announced earlier today. Some of the biggest details: The feature should be on PTR very soon, and it’s slated to be a part of a minor upcoming patch (a.k.a “6.1.2”) instead of the next major update. Code already exists that will allow inactive accounts that have enough banked gold to buy a token to do so from the character select screen, bypassing the Auction House. (!) Blizzard will likely set the initial gold cost and then allow the player market to take it from there. Don’t expect the token to cost less than the monthly subscription cost. High-powered BoE items from the latest raids might see changes as a result of this system being implemented. We’ll have more analysis about the whole of this system up soon, but ...

 

Exploring Draenor: Gara

by Malon on

Exploring Draenor delves into the hidden places of the world that will one day become Outland. From the volcanic landscape of Frostfire to the gloomy dells of Shadowmoon, these articles are your guide to events that are off the beaten path. Hunters are something of a special snowflake for the Warcraft developers. Not only are they the only physical ranged DPS class, able to perform their full rotation on the move, they also have a unique class feature in their pets. While other classes have pets – both temporary and permanent – none has the bond between them that Hunters do. These are wild animals, tamed and trained to become a faithful companion. There have been other pet-based challenges for Hunters before, most noticeably the Spirit Beasts like Loque’nahak and Arcturis, as well as the 10 rare pets from the Firelands patch (4.2). Gara is in a similar vein, but has a ...

Overwatch Press Event Reactions

by JR Cook on

The Overwatch event in which Blizzard invited a bunch of Youtube personalities (including some pro Team Fortess 2 players) happened on Thursday and it appears they have an embargo on the information they received that will lift on Friday morning during PAX East. However, that hasn’t stopped them from being able to tell how the visit itself went and their thoughts on playing the game (without going into specifics). Probably the only bit of new information we did get is it was asked what the business model would be when the game was released and the developers responded with the same thing they did at BlizzCon, that they don’t know yet. However, in my opinion, it is likely we’ll be seeing some kind of free to play model since there is no single player campaign mode to sell. Youtububer mrmuselks posted a Reddit thread with his experiences. He’s primarily a ...

Bluepost Roundup

by Hotstreak on

Activity in the Diablo 3 world ramped up this week with some forum posts and the sudden release of the patch 2.2.0 PTR. Blizzard covered various hot topics like the delay of the new Ruins of Sescheron zone, Act 1 bounty farming, a new file system being implemented, and micro transactions being implemented in other regions. Earlier this week Blizzard released a preview blog for patch 2.2.0 that contained a peek at what’s to come with it’s release. What surprised a lot of people was the absence of the new zone that was showed at Blizzcon, Ruins of Sescheron. Blizzard has clarified it’s absence by saying that it will not be making the cut for the next patch. But fear not, it’s merely delayed and will make it into the game in the near future.  The Ruins of Sescheron will indeed be coming to Adventure Mode in a later patch, as ...

Legacy of the Void Multiplayer Update

by JR Cook on

We got another Legacy of the Void Multiplayer update to go with the one we got on December 17th. This is the second update we have now received since BlizzCon. In the last update there were talks about resource changes, and it seems that they are planning on sticking with those changes as it encourages more expansion across the map rather than just 1 or 2 bases. A new change they are looking at it slowing down the combat in multiplayer by about 40%. Right now they’re not sure if this change will end up making it or not as it will force the games to feel more dragged out. As far as units go, it looks like the HERC for Terran is now going away. It seems that Blizzard simply can’t get a decent new Terran unit as they had trouble doing the same in Heart of the Swarm. ...

 

StarCraft 2 Battle Chest on Sale

Looking to get into StarCraft 2 before Legacy of the Void is out? Recently Blizzard made the Battle Chest where you can get both Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm in one package and today Amazon has that on sale for 25% off. Right now you can get the Battle Chest for $29.99. Do keep in mind, that as far as multiplayer is concerned, Legacy of the Void will be a standalone game when it’s released so if you plan on playing multiplayer you won’t need this edition. However, if you want to see the awesome story surrounding the game now is the time to grab it....
