- Need something to watch this weekend? Heroes of the Storm and Overwatch are on deck this weekend in esports.

- LFR Tomb of Sargeras Wing 4 is live: here’s what you need to know to take on Kil’jaeden.
- With 7.3 on the horizon, we’re all thinking about those scary expansion lulls. Rossi takes a look at the pace of content and speculates on what might be next for WoW, Scott talks about the boom/bust cycle of recruiting for your guild, and Anne talks about how to deal with expansion lulls when you’re roleplaying.
- You’ve probably heard about the Netherlight Crucible in patch 7.3. Here’s how it’s going to work.

And whether you bought packs or not, remember to log on to pick up three free packs! (And remember: you’re guaranteed a Legendary in the first ten.) Need more info? Check out our rundown of the expansion’s new features and cards.
