Abathur Build (Gameplay)

by JR Cook on

Episode 9: Abathur Build (Gameplay) Another 3-0 win streak for the team this week!  Twizz breaks down Abathur and how to use him effectively.  The first map isn’t really an “Abathur friendly” map, but you get to see him shine on the second game.  Third game was a league match and we end the show victorious.  We hope you enjoy!...

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 ...

 

Patch 6.1 Notes, February 27th

by pallimmanis on

Blizzard just pushed a small client-side patch build out to fix some minor bugs related to patch 6.1. If you log in to the game before your system has updated to the newest version your realm list could show as incompatible. If this happens just log out of the game, exit the Battle.net launcher, and reopen it. This should force it to pull down the newest client-side data. If you’re curious about what the patch contained, see the list below or check out the original post from Rygarius here. Bug Fixes General Fixed a number of issues that could cause the client to crash. Fixed an issue where name and chat filters were not blocking some inappropriate words. Classes Rogue Fixed an issue where Combat Rogues were unable to apply Deadly Poison from the Spellbook’s fly-out menu. UI Raid frames should no longer sometimes display character realm names in a ...

 

Raid/Dungeons Q&A w/ Watcher and Lore

by Crow on

Lead Encounter Designer Ion “Watcher” Hazzikostas and Community Manager Lore took to Twitch to take on questions from the community about raids and dungeons, and Watcher dropped a TON of science. Biggest moments for me? It seems highly likely that the Timewalker dungeons mechanic might be talked about soon. Expect an article out of me soon expanding on why that’s awesome. No trolls on Draenor means no troll dungeons in WoD. LFR is easier than heroic dungeons because it’s of who it’s targeted at. That said, they do want dungeons to have a longer shelf-life. There’s a ton of information to get into, so dig in! NOTE: This is generally a paraphrasing of Watcher’s responses. Once there’s a video of the discussion, we’ll get that linked up in a future post. 1. Do you guys ever plan on adding any new realm first titles? Watcher: Likely not for that type ...

 

Overwatch: Who are we missing?

What surprises does Blizzard have in store for Overwatch at PAX East? BLU3 takes some time and speculates on some heroes we may discover....

 

New Hero Hinted at for PAX East

by JR Cook on

Blizzard has hinted at a new map that will probably be seen at PAX East, and now we have hints at a new hero. What caused one weightlifting world champ hopeful to give up fame and glory? Find out in our March issue! pic.twitter.com/VGrAK8QjVu — Overwatch (@PlayOverwatch) February 26, 2015 This cover gives us some hints on what this hero will be. He’s likely to have an origin from Russia and is a melee/brawler style of character. The QR code when scanned reads “Together we are strong”. With the magazine being a March edition it once again leads us to believe this will be a PAX East reveal. We also have a possible picture of what the hero looks like from this art work that was shown during BlizzCon There is a press event today at the Blizzard Headquarters with some livestreamers attending. However, it sounds like they are ...

We’re a little over a week away from PAX East and we know that the Hearthstone team will have some kind of major announcement at the show. Speculation has been a new adventure mode would probably be announced but up until now, we didn’t really have an idea what it might be. We might have gotten a hint of that answer today. Hearthhead has datamined a new upcoming patch in Hearthstone. Within it are some card backs for Ragnaros, Molten Core, and a Golden Celebration. Molten Core’s card back has the most interesting string associated with it that says “purchase brm presale”, brm in this case probably pertains to Black Rock Mountain where Molten Core is at. The Ragnaros card back is a seasonal card back and when (or if I guess) Black Rock Mountain Adventure Mode gets revealed at PAX East next week, will probably be the card back ...

 

New Animation for Mimiron's Head

by JR Cook on

In today’s patch one of the items added was a new animation for Mimiron’s Head. I think we can all agree that this is probably one of the best animations that you are very unlikely to see in game....

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. ...

 

Deathrattle-ish Shaman Deck

by JR Cook on

Episode 49: Deathrattle-ish Shaman Deck So the normal Deathrattle Shaman packs a bunch of Reincarnates, Ancestral Spirits and Baron Rivendare.  This is a little bit different.  It’s a great mid-range type Shaman deck with a bunch of problems for your opponent to deal with.  We hope you enjoy! Deck List Deathrattle-ish Shaman Class: Shaman Shaman (14) Earth Shock x2 Rockbiter Weapon x2 Ancestral Spirit Crackle Flametongue Totem Vitality Totem Hex x2 Lightning Storm x2 Fire Elemental x2 Neutral (16) Zombie Chow x2 Bloodmage Thalnos Haunted Creeper Loot Hoarder Harvest Golem Mind Control Tech Piloted Shredder x2 Feugen Sludge Belcher x2 Stalagg Dr. Boom Kel’Thuzad Sneed’s Old Shredder...

 

StarCraft 2 Battle Chest on Sale

by JR Cook on

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....
