Blizzard unannounced Mobile Game with External Partner (2020)

After BlizzCon 2018, the public knows that Blizzard Entertainment partnered with NetEase to develop Diablo Immortal.

We also know that Cory Stockton — the World of Warcraft developer overseeing Pet Battles — joined a team that is working on a unannounced mobile game. The rumor going around these past years is Warcraft Pets-meets-Pokemon Go. But unproven.

So in short, we know Blizzard Entertainment is working on at least two mobile games (one of them Diablo Immortal, the other one presummably Warcraft-related).

Warcraft III: Reforged Developer Update (May 2020)

The latest Warcraft III: Reforged developer update reveals what Blizzard plans to do in upcoming patches.

Their main focus right now is to fix desync issues, and balance updates. The PTR will launch this week to test balance updates.

Things coming soon to Warcraft III: Reforged:

  • Improved Matchmaking
  • Ranked Ladders System
  • Profiles
  • Custom Campaigns
  • Clans

Toward the end of the developer update, the team says they will provide a roadmap for future releases. Keep an eye for that.

GamesCom 2020 Going Livestream Format

GamesCom 2020 is still alive. The yearly event was cancelled due to the pandemic, but GamesCom 2020 is coming back in a livestream format instead through August 27-30.

This immediately might make you wonder a question. Knowing that Blizzard Entertainment is now attending the IGN Summer of Gaming event livestream… will Blizzard participate in GamesCom 2020’s livestream as well?

Shadowlands Interview: Time in Shadowlands works different

The WoWChakra interview with Ion Hazzikostas revealed something immensely foreshadowing of what might happen in the next expansion after Shadowlands.

According to Ion, time flows differently in Shadowlands than in Azeroth.

Jump to 03:07:38 in the video interview, or read the transcript and my two theories at the bottom of this page:

Shadowlands: Legendary Runecrafter NPC in Torghast created Frostmourne’s Runes

During the WoWChakra interview with Ion Hazzikostas, the developer revealed that the runecrafter NPC that we will find within Torghast is the very same NPC who carved the runes on Frostmourne.

That NPC will join us to help us craft Legendary items from materials gathered in each Torghast run.

You can find this question at 03:05:32 in the video.

Not all races/genders got an update, but I recorded all of them because most of the hair styles and other options now have a name, not just a number.

Days of Wonder announces Small World of Warcraft Board Game

Days of Wonder announced the launch of the Small World of Warcraft board game, based on their Small World game mechanics.

A new day dawns on Azeroth. A day like every one before it, and every one after. A day of merciless struggle for the control of the World of Warcraft. Not only is this Small World territory far too tight for everyone, it also hosts the never-ending conflict between the factions of the Alliance and the Horde. Dawn has broken and the time has come to take your place on the front lines.

Small World of Warcraft is a stand-alone board game set in Blizzard’s glorious video game universe, Azeroth. 2-5 players vie for control of several islands in this hostile world and their only hope will be to pick the right combination of races and special powers. After staking your claim to a piece of land, defeat your neighbors and expand your territory. If you can occupy legendary places and control powerful magical artifacts, you’ll reach new levels of domination. However, empires must eventually fall, so be ready to put your over-extended race into decline and lead a new one to glory so you can eventually rule Azeroth.

[UPDATE] AMD Ryzen Zen 3 extended to B450 and X470

UPDATE (May 19): After fan backlash on Reddit and other platforms, AMD took the decision to take back their recent announcement. You can disregard some portions of my article like the title (AMD Zen 3 Not For Your Current Mobo) and the earlier announcement. Basically, AMD is now allowing Zen 3 CPUs on X470 and B450 (AM4) motherboards via BIOS update, but once you flash it, you won’t be able to downgrade as the update will make space by deleting data to accommodate Zen 3 support data into the BIOS.

“We’ve heard our audience, and we understand the concerns. We are going to work out a way to support Zen 3 on our 400-series chipsets between now and launch – we’re still working out the what and the how, but we will update you closer to Zen 3 launch.”

Torghast Quests | Shadowlands Alpha

In the current Shadowlands Alpha build 34324, and for at least the past 3 builds, there are 4 quests you can queue to play in Torghast, the Tower of the Damned.

It is unknown how these will be accessed in Live realms post-launch, but what I can confirm is that these quests last 6 Floors and end with a boss encounter.

Disclaimer: I do not play a Shaman in live servers. The same way you don’t know how to play all 12 classes, and/or all the 30+ different specs, I don’t. Addons are disabled in the Alpha, thus I can’t use Heiki for rotation. Please, focus on the anima powers and the content found in Torghast, and not my bad rotation.

Click the video titles to launch YouTube. There you can access 1080HD from the gear icon, and fullscreen.
