Blizzard Trademarks "Compete"
Blizzard appears to have trademarked "Compete" in the US and some EU countries. The description makes it clear that it isn't related to the WoW Expansion we are all waiting for, but instead an esports tool.



Overwatch Added to the Launcher
Overwatch was added to the launcher today. You can't actually install it, so it is just an advertisement for now.



Patch 6.2.1 PTR - Build 20363
Tonight's PTR build fixed a few things for mercenary mode and has been flagged as Release. We also learned that Patch 6.2.2 is coming in the future, so flying may be on the way soon!

Hellfire Citadel
Hellfire High Council
  • Dia Darkwhisper's Mark of the Necromancer now deals 20% less damage. Additionally, applications of Mark of the Necromancer can no longer be delayed.

Since you were able to say all of those things without being assassinated, it can't be any of those things.

I can never promise things will be perfect, but I can promise that much, much learning has happened. (Muffinus)
Please say you guys learned HARD from WoD?
I don't think it would be possible not to. (Muffinus)
What would you say are the main things that went wrong in WoD?
As a player, not a dev: I wanted less chores, more world content, more MMO content, more inexhaustible content. (Muffinus)

Look at MoP, no one asked for that and MoP was amazing, wasnt a big fan on the asian influences but yeah
MOP is a curious case, solid staying power through patches, dislike during it, love after it, much to reflect (Muffinus)

    Woah woah WOAH! They're giving us Artanis as the first StarCraft Warrior, and not FENIX?!

    I'm glad to finally see an SC Warrior, and I'm glad to see Artanis brought in. But I really felt Fenix was the guy for the job. What, will he end up being a specialist dragoon? :<

    They actually talked about that at gamescom. They want to do Fenix justice and include his Dragoon form as some kind of death trait, but they want to wait so as to not flood the game with death trait heroes (Leoric just came out). They also gave a possible timeframe of half a year.

    So no 10man Mythic raiding? guess I'll never come back to WoW and neither will my old raid friends. I was hoping Blizzard would understand this as it's the thing that killed my guild that I've had since Cataclysm, we just couldn't make up 10 additional players for 20man raiding... oh well good riddance.
