Erstwhile Art Director Chris G. Robinson has returned with another Artcraft entry. Taking a different tack, this artcraft doesn’t focus on a single race remodel or a zone, but instead on the mechanics of improving the facial animation for all of the playable races. Read the full post below. Hello, and welcome to Artcraft! I’m your host Chris Robinson, art director of World of Warcraft, and today we’re going to tackle something I know a lot of you have been looking forward to: facial customization options. When we began working on the updated character models, we knew it would be a huge project, and we weren’t sure we could do it all at once. The idea originally was that a few races would be available at launch, and all the others would be patched in throughout the course of the expansion. While it wouldn’t have been ideal to see a ...

Let’s Talk Character Models I have a thing for horns. And hoofs. Tails are certainly a bonus. In short, I adore the draenei race. They are goofy, nerdy spacegoats that lack comedic timing, and have a hard time picking up sarcasm (they are also tall, and beautiful, with far too many knees to make my Co-GM completely comfortable). Their accent is reminiscent of eastern Europe, and they are foreigners in a strange land, on a strange planet. I guess I can relate. In the World of Warcraft community, English is the main language. As Sweden is far too small to have servers dedicated to just us, and because we are good at English, we play the game in English, and we speak English in guild chat, over Skype, on the forums, and on Twitter. Heck, we even record podcasts and write articles in English about our passion for the game. But ...

The Fury of Rehgar

by Zenstyle on

Heroes of the Storm’s most recent addition to the hero pool is a big, mean-spirited orc shaman. Beyond that, I know basically nothing. Apparently, he’s involved with slave pits and gambling, or something. He represents the first character that I’ve purchased in-game who I have essentially no emotional investment in. Even Murky, as annoying as he was in his initial stages, held some measure of sentimental value to me because I was once a newbie in World of Warcraft, hopelessly outmatched by the murloc hordes. Why mention this? My review of Rehgar is not rooted in nostalgia, which is unusual for me. The character is, essentially, just a package of skills and little more. I wish I could say I’m a big fan of his appearance, but ultimately his anemic looking one-handed swatting orc judo does little for me. That said, I am in love with his abilities and talents. His ...

The $1 billion Twitch deal with Google appears to be a done deal.  Sources familiar with it say that Google has signed the deal. Full details of the deal aren’t known yet, but there is speculation that the deal could be announced at GamesBeat 2014 where both companies are scheduled to be speaking. The purchase is rumored to be through Google’s YouTube division, which would make Google the leading company for live streaming by gamers.  Recent statistics show that Twitch was responsible for 1.35% of all internet traffic in March of this year.  They have more than 50 million active users every month and 1.1 million who broadcast live each month. As per company policy, neither Google nor Twitch are commenting on the deal at this time....

 

Initial thoughts on artifacts

by Zenstyle on

The most recent Heroes of the Storm patch brought with it a lot of the usual suspects. Balance changes, systematic upgrades, new skins, all that jazz. It also brought with it a new hero, a new map, and a totally new hero customization system, artifacts. Similar in nature to League of Legend’s runes, artifacts allow a player to accentuate certain hero facets, ideally allowing for an even more replete play experience. Heroes each have three artifact slots, all available at account level 15. While the first is free, the other two will run an individual 2,000 gold per slot. Each artifact can be upgraded 10 times, and the costs go up by 100 gold for each rank, beginning at 100 gold. Essentially, it will cost a player 5,500 gold to max out one specific artifact. In return, players can receive boons to maximum health, damage, cooldown reductions, mount speed and much ...

After a somewhat faulty start (the projector froze – always check your tools first, folks!), the crowd at Blizzard’s SDCC panel was greeted by an ear-blasting rendition of I Am Murloc - a song by the company’s very own Level 90 Elite Tauren Chieftain (formerly ‘The Artists Formerly Known as Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain’, ‘Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain’, ‘Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain’, ‘Level 60 Elite Tauren Chieftain’, and ‘Tenth Level Tauren Chieftain’). The panel itself focused around new toys and collectibles, with pride of place going to Rehgar Earthfury: a new Heroes of the Storm hero from Warcraft lore. Kim Phan, eSports manager, tweeted a picture of the collectible just before the panel began, accompanied by Chris Metzen, Ion Hazzikostas (aka Watcher) and cinematics lead Nick Carpenter… …And followed it with a picture from the stage at the end of the event. Author Micky Neilson, and Blizzard toys and collectibles manager ...
