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:)

Hearthstone

Season 5 begins
Season 4 comes to a close and if you managed to get rank 20 (which I’m sure you did) you received a quite relevant Naxx card back and now S5 is Icecrown themed.

“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.”

Flying in Draenor update

We still think a 6.1 patch seems like a pretty reasonable point where flying would become available in Draenor, likely with some kind of aforementioned prerequisite. Maybe it’s gold, maybe it’s some kind of epic quest, maybe something more straightforward. But we’re staying open to changing that post-release if it seems like it’s working out really well and we want to keep rolling with it. I’m digging that there seems to be a pretty reasonable mix of beta experiences here though. Definitely looking forward to feedback when we get to the max-level content too.

“One of our goals with e-sports is to ensure that there’s a vibrant and also inclusive community around our games,” a Blizzard spokesperson said in a statement provided to GamesBeat. “We do not allow the use of our games in tournaments that do not support this, and are working with our partners to ensure they share the same goal.”
