Have you ever wanted to see a Zerged out Kerrigan throw down with Thrall? How about Tasadar and the Witchdoctor from Diablo 3? All possible with blizzards new MOBA game, Heroes of the Storm.

Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) games have recently become as common as grains of sand on a beach but Blizzards entry is looking to differentiate itself by creating a unique niche inside of a very crowded environment. Heroes appeals to a more casual audience than league or DOTA with most matches lasting less than 20 minutes, and a heavy emphasis on team fights and objectives. The item shop has been removed and leveling is done as a team, rather than individually. This is balanced out with a unique role system that creates a rock, paper, scissors feeling when choosing champions. Games are made more variable by a set of talents that modify the core ability of each champion which you chose as you level up in game. This system makes the game feel very much like Warcraft III with progressive leveling of your heroes as the game goes on. The whole thing is wrapped up in the beautiful tile sets of blizzards many worlds and has a really aesthetic.Read More


Blizzard Lays Down The Ban Hammer On Bots

Posted on December 20, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

There is nothing more frustrating than trying to find your perfect set of gear in a game like Diablo III only to find that either the people you are playing with have snagged it or the marketplace is flooded dozens of them thanks to bots. For serious players it can take away the meaning of rare drops and in the worst case scenarios it can bring the game to its knees by overloading the servers.

Blizzard revealed today that they have banned a few thousand accounts for hacking, boting among other offenses. Since this is a game with an economy based upon real money it is nice to see the developers taking things seriously. Apparently cheating was so widespread that it was starting to cause problems with Battle.net.

Blizzard Fixes ‘Act I’ Glitch For New Diablo Players

Posted on June 28, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Last week we reported that Blizzard had implemented several restrictions on new purchasers of Diablo III. Some of these restrictions were intentional, such as the inability to create private games or use the real money auction house, and some of them were the result of a glitch found after the restrictions were put into place.

Players who buy Diablo III digitally will no longer be subject to the level 13 or be restricted to the first act of the game. They would will however not be able to access public games, the auction house or trader received items for up to 72 hours. This allows Blizzard to verify the credit card information used to purchase the game and helps prevent gold farming and credit fraud.Read More
