Heroes of the Storm: What is quick casting and why is it important? If you’re even a casual fan of Heroes of the Storm, it’s still a good idea to understand the ins and outs of the game. For example, even if you never play a particular hero, it’s still helpful to know their main ability kit. Similarly, understanding what quick casting is and how to use it...

Heroes of the Storm teases its newest hero It’s been a few weeks since Heroes of the Storm revealed Stukov as its latest hero, which means it’s time for another figure to take the stage and steal the title of “newest hero.” While we don’t have an official reveal just yet, we do have a pretty open-ended teaser that was displayed during HGC...




What’s your favorite character’s theme song? Heroes of the Storm releasing an unofficial soundtrack for its Warriors has inspired me to ask: If you have to pick a theme song for your favorite characters in Blizzard games, who would you pick and which song would you give them? Personally, I find this task particularly difficult because I already enjoy making soundtracks...

What’s your threshold for group behavior? Whether it’s Heroes of the Storm, Overwatch, or World of Warcraft, several of Blizzard’s games put you in groups with other, random players. This can often mean encountering behavior that eventually exhausts your patience. Be it players who keep feeding the other team, intolerable language, AFKers, or what have you, a group can push all your...

Probius and Ragnaros are just two of the heroes nerfed in the latest Heroes of the Storm patch While not quite as exciting as the release of a new hero or the announcement of one — cough please be Kel’thuzad cough– a patch hit Heroes of the Storm servers today and brought with it a few balance changes. A lot of the changes fall in the “nerf” department, but there are some buffs sprinkled in to...

Heroes of the Storm balance update takes aim at Cassia, Tassadar, and Warriors Heroes of the Storm may be bringing the giant 2.0 update and a new hero reveal to us next week, but that doesn’t mean we’re not going to get changes in the meantime. Today’s balance update doesn’t hit anyone too hard, but makes adjustments to bring a couple heroes more in line with Blizzard’s vision for...




Lúcio
Lúcio coming to Heroes of the Storm In a move that I’m seriously delighted about, Overwatch hero Lúcio is headed to Heroes of the Storm. While the brief and beautiful introductory video didn’t have a lot of details on abilities, we do know Lúcio will be a much-needed new Support Hero in the Nexus. Lúcio makes his debut in the PTR next...

BlizzCon 2016: Blizzard Watch Day 1 coverage That was quite the first day of BlizzCon 2016! People who were worried there wouldn’t be any news to talk about at this BlizzCon, I think your worries have been definitively answered. We here at Blizzard Watch wanted to give you a one stop place to check out everything we posted yesterday so you can...



What’s your favorite Blizzard franchise? BlizzCon is coming up next week and with it, the Diablo 20th anniversary, which got me thinking. Blizzard has made a lot of games over the years, some still going strong or establishing franchises that last to this day. Others (like my old friend Blackthorne) not so much. But over the years Blizzard has racked...

BlizzCon 2016 schedule
What kind of game should Blizzard put out next? BlizzCon is fast approaching. We have no reason to expect a new game from Blizzard — they have a pretty full slate, with Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone, Starcraft II, and World of Warcraft all in various stages of development and possibility of a new Diablo game bolstered by rumors about David Brevik’s return....

Breakfast Topic: Give us your best Blizzard pun It all started out innocently enough. A joke about Gul’dan School’dan in a cap-and-gown skin for his upcoming Heroes of the Storm debut. None of us could have known it would turn into something so much more. By the end of the night, though, we were swimming in more puns than a Pool’dan on a nice day. There was...

Breakfast Topic: What’s your favorite Blizzard music? I’m having one of those weeks where I’m obsessed with a particular piece of music — this time, it’s the soundtrack from Auchindoun, which contains all the sweeping parts of the login screen track along with a lot of eerie chanting. If there’s one thing Blizzard has consistently nailed with every game they’ve put out...

Diablo 3
Breakfast Topic: What are you playing? I have to admit, the twilight of Warlords of Draenor doesn’t do much to excite me. It’s tough to motivate myself to log on to do the same old things without any new content on the horizon. I’ll log on for guild events and can occasionally coax myself to hop on to do garrison/shipyard missions...
