An Epic Anniversary
2011/02/09 at 11:27 PM
There isn't much I can say about this - the title is self-explanatory. Our lovely Blizzard is no longer a teenager company, and is only one year away from legal age (in the US). I am not sure what the implications of that are, nor am I sure whether all of them can be considered legal, but the facts are here. And, as it's starting to become common, Blizz did a mini-site for the anniversary - you check it out along with the big announcement below:
In 1991, three guys fresh out of UCLA decided to start their own game company. Their goal: make cool games and have fun doing so. Twenty years later, the company has become a world-renowned game developer and publisher, with offices across the globe and millions of players enjoying its games in more than a dozen languages.
In 2011, Blizzard Entertainment marks its 20th anniversary. Over the course of the year, we'll be celebrating two decades worth of games along with you, the community of players who made it all possible through your passion, enthusiasm, and support. Join us for a stroll down memory lane on this anniversary site

News Roundup: Rated Battleground Format Change, PVP Balance, Epic Gem Slots and more!
2011/02/04 at 3:48 PM
Quite a few new Blue posts today on a bit of a wide variety of topics. Most important to note is the change of the rated battlegrounds format from 15vs15 to 10vs10. Be sure to read the detailed Blizzard post below for more information! Also, a reminder from Blizzard that threatening people over the Internet is absolutely absurd and you shouldn't do it unless you want the FBI banging down your door. And you'd deserve it.
Today's topics include:
Rated Battleground Weeks Changing from 15vs15 to 10vs10
Bandaging in Raids
Gem Slots Being Added to Epic Craftables
Why Tundra Mammoth Doesn't Sell 85 Food/Water
