Argus bugs, PVP balancing, and more in latest WoW hotfixes The latest WoW hotfixes honed in on PVP balancing as well as other odds and ends in the bug department, especially concerning the new chapters in the Argus patch 7.3 story. For PVP, all classes had their chance to dodge and parry increased in PVP situations. Previously it was a reduced chance of 20%, which...

Reinhardt gets his charge card back in latest Overwatch patch notes Yeah, okay, it’s a terrible joke but I think Reinhardt would approve. The latest Overwatch patch notes for August 1st are entirely bug fixes, but if you’ve been afflicted by any of them, you’ll appreciate that they are being fixed. There was a bug that prevented the party leader from entering the training menu, one...




Updated: Reinhardt fixes and other Hero changes on the Overwatch PTR It appears that Overwatch players who are unhappy about Reinhardt — specifically, complaining that some of his abilities are bugged or aren’t working at all — have a ray of hope. Jeff from the Overwatch team (aka Game Director Jeff Kaplan) has posted to the forums saying that the dev team is investigating these issues,...

WoW Patch 7.2.5 known issues {PB} Patch 7.2.5 is here and, while maintenance came up many hours earlier than expected, there are still the regular bugs and issues that pop up here and there. Blizzard posted a list already, and most of them seem to be minor in the grand scheme of things — albeit the kinds of things that...

Latest WoW hotfixes focus on bugs It’s two whole days after patch 7.1, and that means it’s time for more hotfixes. This is relatively small list of (mostly) bug fixes — many of which have come up on @WarcraftDevs in the past day — without anything revolutionary. Does this mean we’ve already reached the tail of 7.1 hotfixes? We’ll see in the...

Latest WoW hotfixes fix weapon sheathing crash Hooray for hotfixes! The latest round features a pile of patch 7.1 bug fixes, including one that caused the game to crash when you sheathed your weapon. It may not be the strangest bug we’ve seen, but it’s probably in the top ten. Another fix: Karazhan attunement items now drop in Mythic+ dungeons. That’s definitely handy for...




Latest patch 7.0.3 known issues Now that Demon Hunters are live (yes!), the patch 7.0.3 known issues have been updated with Demon Hunter issues. Most of the issues are small, relating to incorrect tooltips or quality-of-life problems, but they’re undoubtedly things you should know before (while?) playing your new character. Relying on an inaccurate tooltip is no fun. In addition...

Patch 7.0.3 known issues While the deployment of the Legion pre-patch has been shockingly smooth, the patch isn’t without its issues — though most of them are admittedly minor. Blizzard has posted an extensive list of the patch’s known issues, the bulk of them being tooltip errors. The tooltip errors are, no doubt, the result of class balance being...



Breakfast Topic: The fun and frustration of bugs Bugs are a fact of life in video games. As game worlds grow bigger and more complicated, there’s ever more places for things to go wrong. Sometimes these things go wrong in hilarious ways, sometimes they go wrong in horrible ways, and sometimes it’s a mix of both. If you played in vanilla, you’re likely...

WoW Patch 6.1 introduces battle pet healing bug [Updated] It seems as though battle pets, bucking under the iron rule of their trainers, no longer heal themselves in battle as much as they should since patch 6.1 was applied.
