“What’s the first rule of Brawlers guild? You don’t mention Brawler’s guild in your intro. Oops too late…”


Hearthstone

Blizzards F2P card game Hearthstone hits 20 million players after just 6 months and proves that a F2P done right can have a massive reward.

Have you ever wondered where other players are at in ranked play? Blizzard has released a nice graph to show what rank most people are at.


World of Warcraft

Blizzard have increased their development staff with 50 % which slowed down the making of Warlords of Draenor, but it should in the long run make expansions arrive more quickly in the future.

The newest episode of Lords of War is out and we are taking a closer look at Kilrogg Deadeye.

The Brawler’s Guild season 1 is coming to an end so it’s your last chance to get those achievements under the belt before it’s too late.


Heroes of the Storm

The final phase of the technical alpha is about to end and is “celebrated” by giving you access too all the heroes before the first character wipe will occur.

Orc Hump

Regarding Orc posture, want to add upright orcs eventually but that won’t be part of this update, no guarantee or eta. If/when we introduce It would be as an option, not replacement of current posture. For every person who doesn’t like it, there are 2 others that love the hump:)

“When attempting to play the card, Kel’Thuzad pops up to say: “This is Heroic Naxxramas! I won’t stand for such cheap tactics here!” Alexstrasza is then destroyed and your mana is not refunded.”
