March Cardback is Raging Ragnaros

by JR Cook on

The datamined cardback for ranked season 12 March has been revealed by the Hearthstone team. Raging Ragnaros is the cardback so it seems likely the strings about Black Rock Mountain are probably correct. It’s likely we’ll be seeing the new adventure mode announced at PAX East Friday. If you want to see all of the card backs in the game check out our post here. You can read the full details of this new cardback here: The twelfth official Hearthstone Ranked Play Season is now live—and we’re unveiling a new card back you can add to your collection! BY FIRE BE PURGED! Command the awesome fury of the Firelord with the fiery Ragnaros card back. You can only earn this card back by playing Hearthstone during the month of March. These card backs replace the art decorating the reverse side of your cards and are a great way to show off ...

 

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 ...

Episode 40 – What about Season 2? Season 2 will be known as the Season that Diablo forgot. The Patch 2.2 PTR has dropped this week, well ahead of everyone’s expectations after Patch 2.1.2. We hope you’re as excited as Leviathan and Neinball are as they jump into the patch notes and share their thoughts on the myriad number of changes. While our hosts don’t have the time to cover all the patch changes, don’t fret. Episode 41 will round up all the undocumented and datamined changes....

February 27th Hotfixes

by pallimmanis on

Before leaving the office for the weekend Rygarius left us the most recent list of hotfixes for patch 6.1. February 27 Classes Hunter Talents Focusing Shot now has a facing requirement. Monk Talents Fixed an issue where Chi Explosion could incorrectly trigger Healing Elixirs while the Monk is at full health. Priest Talents Saving Grace (Discipline, Holy) now heals for 34% less in PvP combat (up from 25% less). Shaman Elemental Fixed an issue where Lava Surge can interact with the talent, Echo of the Elements incorrectly to provide an additional charge of Lava Surge. Restoration Chain Heal should now be correctly healing the most injured ally first. Warlock Talents Soul Link’s healing now ignores effects that increase or decrease the amount of healing received. Warrior General Execute now deals 13% more damage for Fury and Protection Warriors, effectively restoring the ability’s damage level back to pre-Patch 6.1. Fixed 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 ...

 

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 ...

 

Overwatch: Who are we missing?

by BLU30RION on

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

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 ...

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....
