After the 6 month bans against Blitzchung, and the two Hearthstone casters, Blizzard has now handed out a 6 month ban on the three American Collegiate esports players who held up a “FREE HONG KONG, BOYCOTT BLIZZ” sign during one of their matches. This comes after the team asked for fair treatment, and said, “If you’re going to censor that message, use those same rules to an American audience and see how that goes.” So Blizzard complied and banned them for 6 months from any Hearthstone esports competition. Find out more about it here.
BlizzCon season officially starts when the BlizzCon leaks start flying around the internet like flies. And this week was no different. We found out that there was a possible Diablo 4 art book leak from a magazine in Germany, and it holds some weight since the book is available for purchase on Amazon. And then MetroOW, who predicted Ashe coming in Overwatch last year down to her actual abilities, has spoken out about what’s coming for Overwatch, Diablo 4, and Diablo 2. But our question is…. who at Blizzard is talking to people about these announcements?! We discuss NDA’s and loose lips on this episode. You won’t want to miss it!
Since it was announced AFTER last week’s episode, we revisit the Halloween Terror event to discuss the skins that were released in this years event, and how the community reacted to them. *cough* Demon Hunter Sombra *cough*. Find out more about the event, and all the skins here!
