Special Announcement: This week on the show we replaced our Top 5 list to add something to the show that means way more important than anything else talked about on the show. This past week the Blizzard Community lost a very special member. For those that are familiar with our Media Network, D20Crit Alliance, one of the founding members of it has unexpectantly passed away. Tristan Derringher  was more than just a podcaster, she was also a friend of the show. The community has created a GoFundMe account for her husband Wil, and two children she has left behind. Tristan will be greatly missed, as a friend, podcaster, and beyond. She has touched so many lives in our community and in the real world.

General Blizzard News Banner

This coming week, Blizzard has traveled to Europe and have taken Gamescom by storm! But, what are they doing there? We aren’t sure just yet. The rumor mill is running rampant from the next World of Warcraft expansion to a new hero coming to Overwatch and beyond. Check out all the details on the official Blizzard Gamescom page here!

Heroes of the Storm News Banner

Some times in video games there are different bugs that either break the game, or make the game completely hilarious! This past week it was floating around the Heroes of the Storm forums about a bug that involves Rexxar’s pet Misha. The way this bug works is that with the addition of minion collision being added to the game, it’s making it so that Misha is not able to move around as freely as before and gets trapped in by the minions. But it’s just better if you see it for  yourself! Check it out here.

Hearthstone News Banner

This past week we all got invited to a new party inside of Hearthstone, and we hope you accepted your invitation and actually attended the party in Karazhan! From disco music to hilarious commentary, and beyond, the first wing of the latest Hearthstone adventure is now available! Find out more all about it here! 

Overwatch News Banner

Another week, another Overwatch Hero conspiracy theory. This time, it’s revealed inside ASCII code where players found a skull, and an encrypted message. But what does this all mean?! Could it be a possible new hero reveal of Sombra coming with a Dia de los Muerto or the Day of the Dead. But once again, don’t take our word for it, check it out for yourself! 

We’ve talked about Net Code before on the show, and this week is no different, besides that Blizzard has provided us more information about the upcoming changes being made to the tick rate that your computer communicates with the Blizzard servers. This was previously available for custom matches only but has now made its way into quick match and competitive mode. Read more about these changes here.

The Overwatch World Cup voting is now live! If you want to vote for your favorite Overwatch players, check out this link. And if you want to learn more about the World Cup inside of Overwatch, check out this article. 

Within the Blizzard Entertainment Universe, cheaters never win. And Blizzard has made it known that they will not allow or support cheating inside Overwatch. This past week, a pro player was banned while on his public stream due to botting. But the community is up in arms about this, saying that Blizzard isn’t taking a true stand against pro players. but it is later answered in a blue post that this is no true. Check out the Blue Post here. And the article about the cheating here.

The Overwatch World Cup is on its way! In its early stages, it appears to be an All – Star game of sorts, where the community votes on their favorite and best Overwatch player from their regions. Once the players have been picked, the teams will be established, and the winners have a chance to possibly be on stage at BlizzCon this fall! You can read more about it here.

Just like with Ana, the community has been on a data mining exploration with a potential new hero named Sombra. But this time, the data mining may have gone a little too far…. Check it all out for yourself here!

StarCraft News Banner

StarCraft is one of the few games on the market that encourages it’s player base to use its API to create some amazing games, it’s what we talk about the Blizzard Arcade each and every week on the show. With over 1000s of creators and ever more games, it comes at no surprise that one amazing group of creators took it upon themselves to try to create the most amazing Blizzard Arcade game ever, the StarCraft Universe. We have previously talked about this on the show, as well we had a chance to talk with the creators at BlizzCon 2014. This game started out as a MMO, but has turned into a RPG. Basically it’s a mash up between Diablo and World of Warcraft, but with a StarCraft appearance! But don’t take our word for it, check it out for yourself!

In the heat of battle during an intense match within the Nexus, emotions fly and people say things they may regret. But people who continue to be disrespectful towards players, they become silenced within the game and cannot socialize with the rest of us. In a recent case, a player took his hatred and rants to the next level, and because of this, he could face up to 5 YEARS of prison time if convicted. So remember folks, everything to say in game chats can and will be used against you in a court of law, so please be respectful, or pay for your crime.
