    im at a point where i almost dont care about anything anymore.

    wow is shit since bfa and shadowlands is on the same level of shit
    sc2 has been shit ever since heart of the swarm came out and they just recently pulled the plug and killed it officially


    the other blizzard games i cant even take serious and together with all the negative news about the company itself over the past few years i find the self-congratulatory annual event embarassing

    In reality, most games are chugging right along with more than healthy enough playerbases to support them. If they're not profitable, they inevitably shut down.
    Hots isn't getting updated, that's a dead game.

    I totally disagree on Starcraft, that is their one franchise that never failed. Fucking awesome games.

    But it is? Still getting new heroes (more slowly though) and balance updates. Also occasional special events with some quests and stuff.

    Because just like Overwatch, it is too boring to watch and too casual to be interesting.

    Blizzard fucking up all their games by forcing an Esports scene just to abandon the games when no one jumps on it is so idiotic and it hasn't worked ever.

    And Diablo Immortal??? Wasn't that scrapped years ago, after the epic fail of a pressentation, where they outright refused a PC version?
    It was never scrapped. Blizzard isn't going to scrap something because a convention that is PC gamers got their undies in a knot over it's unveiling.

    YOu do know that you can have a virtual performace right? Whatever band you get can set up in their own place and stream it.

    My guess would be...

    WoW: 9.1 talk in detail and some foreshadowing of the patch cycle to come. Probably a Classic TBC announcement of some type.

    Diablo: Immortal release announcement. D4 update. Possible talk of the D2 remaster. Wouldn't be surprised by some type of "throw money at us early" sort of bait when it comes to the remaster.

    Overwatch: Some brewhaha on esports. OW2 update. Possible release announcement but more likely prepurchase "give us money now and by 12-24-21 it will be released (be sure to read lots of fine print)" type of thing if that's the case.

    Starcraft: Don't think we will get much here but wouldn't mind a surprise.

    Well, PC have always been Blizzard's main focus, so PC games' opinion will always matter to them.
    Fact (because I say so): TBC > Cata > Legion > ShaLa > MoP > BfA > WoD = WotLK

    These things just add to the mountain of chores and add nothing new to the game. They seriuesly need to look at reward structures, end game and the horrible pvp burst meta no one seems to like. A new dungeon do shit in the end.

    What you want is a new expansion. Innovative and grand scale new features usually come with the expansion not the x. 1 patch.

    And you only want peace and honor baine you suck.. sorry jokes aside.

    Transmog didnt come with the new expansion, mage tower didnt etc. They could pull new things off.. just afraid it will be morenof the same.

    Thanks for this and information.

    As this is a free mid-February event after everyone has been WFH for months, I'm not really expecting a ton here. Somewhat surprised they are even having it, hard to imagine them making a massive announcement without a crowd there to get super into it.

    WoW - 9.1 content preview, alongside some info on 9.1.5 & 9.2. I suspect they will handle this like they did for BfA a couple years back and try to lay out the WoW plan until we get to next November or so.

    WoW Classic - TBC Announcement. Discussion on how TBC realms will work with current Classic realms. Not really a ton to discuss here.

    Diablo - Some D4 discussion. Diablo: Immortal release date. Perhaps some D2 remaster talk, but that may just be an announcement and nothing else.

    Hearthstone - Yet another expansion with some new card gimmick and several more decks getting antiquated. Basically another day for them.

    Overwatch - New hero, some small discussion on OW2. If the rumors about it being behind schedule are true, don't expect much here.

    SC/HotS - Maybe an acknowledgement they exist, but they may not even get that.

    Time to buy whatever online attendance package gives me a pet/mount. I will wait until all the Tubers dissect Ion's words (or threats) and then get my popcorn to actually watch any interview. I finally came to the conclusion in this expansion, that whatever they say or do on stage doesn't matter. If the game has no activities for my interests, then I can unsub. If the game doesn't allow me to gear up in ways I find fun, then I can unsub. Whatever they say in Blizzcon only matters on Tuesday mornings if something is changed. They can say whatever they want, feel the need, or are pressured into saying. It only matters on Tuesday mornings if my characters become better to me, stay the same, or are worse/unplayable. Just give me my mount/pet and let's see what happens on Tuesday mornings.

    Yeah true, I feel the wow annoucement could be better done via a game developer update like they usually do before a patch. This has the chance to be super cringey.

    Give me official TBC and D2 remastered (proper one!) announcements and i am happy.
    I do not give a shit about anything else honestly.

  18. #38
    only things im excited about

    OVEWATCH 2

    TBC CLASSIC

    as for the rest, i have a feeling d4 is gonna suck

  19. #39
    D4 is pretty much the only thing i'm interested in and that's still years from release.
