Blizzard and Upper Deck Parting Ways
2010/02/12 at 8:10 PM
As some of you may have heard on other sites, such as
are not renewing the contract for Upper Deck to produce the trading card game cards. This is a big change as Upper Deck is one the biggest distributors of TCG that I can think of. Blizzard has said they will continue forward with the TCG and are continuing to look forward.
Now onto a little speculation! From what I noticed and have heard about around the water cooler (You didn't know we had a water cooler?) is that Blizzard likes to do things in-house. Compared to when Blizzard and Upper Deck first launched the WoW TCG, Blizzard has received a lot of experience in the TCG arena and they may have decided it's time to bring the project under their own umbrella. This would mean Blizzard would begin printing the cards and distributing it themselves and would have more freedom in how to handle things.
You can read the post by Blizzard regarding this after the break.

StarCraft II Beta Coming This February!

For all of you out there that have been waiting patiently for MANY YEARS like me for

Blizzard has just updated the status on their StarCraft II Facebook page saying:

Yeah... We're Dropping Support for IE6
2010/02/10 at 8:10 PM
I'm sure this will come as no surprise. What with all the talk about security holes, and the advanced age of the browser (what, nine years now?), major websites are dropping IE6 support left and right—and that's not to mention the specific concern about the security of WoW accounts.
So let us say officially:
We will shortly be dropping support for Internet Explorer 6 (IE6)
Now for those of you who are stuck with this geriatric browser for whatever reason, don't despair! This isn't quite as harsh as it sounds—it doesn't mean the page is suddenly going to stop working completely in IE6. It only means that if we make a change or an update that makes the page look funny in IE6...well, we're not going to lose any sleep over it.
No longer worrying about maintaining support for this old browser will enable us to spend more time developing new features, and to make sure we're taking advantage of all the technological advances newer browsers have to offer.
So if you're still using

StarCraft II's Battle.net Preview
2010/02/09 at 5:39 PM
Blizzard just launched a new page on their StarCraft II website that contains a preview of the new
integrated service for all Blizzard games, including World of Warcraft.
In this preview you will find some of the new features and developmental screenshots of the new service—which includes competitive arenas, cross-connectivity between Blizzard games and a way to post mods and community created content. There is also a video interview with Greg Canessa, Project Director for Battle.net, where he covers all of this and more.
As this pertains to World of Warcraft players as we will most likely see most of the previewed features integrated into the game in future content patches.
I am personally very excited about this, how about you?
