Back in December, Blizzard announced that they were changing the StarCraft WCS into different circuts, seperating North America and Korea when it comes to rankings and tournaments. At the time, we were excited for the change, and it seemed it was long awaited. But this past week, the changes finally hit close to home when HerO of Team Liquid recently left the team due to these changes. He will be missed on the North American ladders, and it is sad to see him no longer part of Team Liquid. We both wish him the best as he continues to dominate the StarCraft WCS! To read more about this, check out this article here.
Also during the show, we discussed a Steam Game that shines some light on the life of a Korean StarCraft player. Check it out here.
This past week the Hearthstone team announced that they have an announcement to make at the upcoming Winter North American Championships coming up on Friday, March 11th, 2016. What type of expansion or adventure do we have in store for us later this week?! Read the offical announcement of the announcement here.
In Diablo for the month of March, there will be a special Cow Level available for players to take part in. As a honor to the late great Kevin Griffith, a Blizzard Entertainment Artist, who passed away from a rare form of cancer back in October 2014. In honor of his birthday, we will all be able to escort him through the secret Cow Level! Check out the announcement on the forums.
This past week Jeff Kaplan sat down to give the community an update when it comes to Overwatch. He discussed the upcoming ranked play system that is being developed, the server stability worldwide, and also how they may have made the mistake of calling this a beta when it acts more like a alpha. To hear it directly from his mouth, check out the video here!
This week’s World of Warcraft discussion topics:
a.) Check your addons on the PTR if you use communication addons some changes to the Lua API could break these addons when the patch launches. Details here.
b.) Developer Updates: Should other Blizzard titles, specifically World of Warcraft start doing Developer updates?
Each week we pick a game from the endless library of the Blizzard Arcade to test them out and help the listeners find some awesome stupidly fun games.
