5.)I just want to say that I personally believe you all did an INCREDIBLE job on this new expansion, Legion. I absolutely love it so far.
4.) legion is great. The issue is some serious quest bugs that don’t let you get them back. Other than that….FANTASTIC expansion.
3.)I love it so far. the story in interesting to me, the questing feels great and back to some old roots, they made the grind less of a headache by having flight masters unlocked from start
2.)Every one of my friends in real life are having a blast playing it. Everyone I know personally absolutely loves it. It’s nothing like Warlords of Draenor.
1.) *You’ll have to listen to Episode 122 to hear #1*
When it comes to video game companies, a lot of people forget that their main job is to make money from publishing new content. But that’s where Blizzard Entertainment stands above the rest. Coming with the Machines of War campaign coming to Heroes of the Storm, Blizzard is giving players Thrall, Anub’arak, and/or Tyrande for free for players who log in starting September 13th. Already have those heroes, have no fear! Blizzard will also be making Nazeebo, Sonya, and/or Uther also free. And if you are so rich in Heroes that you already have all of those heroes, they will be awarding you with 4000 gold so you can use it towards the purchase of future heroes coming to the Nexus! Check out this article for more details.
This past week, Season 2 of Overwatch’s competitive mode released! But not all players were ready for the launch since it was previously communicated that the season would go live on September 6th versus September 1st! But surprise or not, the latest season is here, and what a better time to release the newest Overwatch map called Eichenwalde! But there is so much more included in this patch than just a new map, there are character balances, map changes and much much more. Check out the official season launch article here!
Also, if you don’t already own it, Blizzard is allowing players to play Overwatch on XBox One and Playstation 4 completely for free from September 9th to the 12th.
