Overwatch News & Discussion 

Overwatch is trying to break the mold of what a competitive shooter is meant to be. But will it succeed? That’s the question that RedBull eSports is trying to answer.

World of Warcraft News & Discussion 

World of Warcraft Q&A at DragonCon.  Re-cap made available at MMO Champion!

 

  • Dungeons will absolutely be relevant again.
  • There will be a “single system” to upgrade profession items. The current item will be destroyed, giving you a reagent needed for the upgrade (Obliterium).
  • A new team will be working on professions this time, including profession quest lines.
  • Professions will get some crafting items from dungeon loot.
  • Professions won’t have daily cooldowns.
  • Prospecting could make a return.
  • If the new transmog system is account wide, the item must be usable by the class trying to use it.
  • Illidan Good Guy-ish
  • The backpack might be updated.

This past week, there has been a lot of discussion within the World of Warcraft community about the Timewalking Reward Costs. A lot of players believe that the cost of 5000 badges for one of the mounts is too high of a cost. There was a Blue Post on this topic available on the forums.

Also this week, we cover the topic of Personal Loot within the Looking for Group system. We discuss some ideas that we believe that the World of Warcraft Development Team should consider going forward in order to make the loot systems fair for those pick up groups.
