David “dpei” Pei, head coach for the LA Gladiators Overwatch League team, bumped into two Houston Outlaws players backstage last night and issued a real head-scratcher of an apology for it:
Hearthstone is a game for haters. It’s expensive; its metagame stands still for months; no matter how well you play, you will drop games to bad players with good luck. Read the comments on pretty much any article about Blizzard Entertainment’s wildly successful collectible card game, and you’ll find a glut of…
The third and final volume in Blizzard’s exhaustive history of Azeroth comes out on March 27. Dark Horse Books slipped us a few pages from World of Warcraft Chronicle Volume 3 to give us an idea of what to expect.
The worst feeling in a first-person shooter is having absolutely no idea why you died. Overwatch took that feeling, compressed it into a small Australian man, and armed it with grenades.
After three long months with Hearthstone’s dungeon-crawling Kobolds and Catacombs set, Blizzard has just announced a new expansion. Dubbed The Witchwood, the upcoming release brings new card mechanics, a major shakeup to the competitive card pool, and a fresh single-player adventure mode–all set against a gothic…
If you can see Overwatch’s Genji you’ve probably let him get too close. The same applies to his character in Heroes of the Storm. And if that happens, whatever you do, don’t shoot him.
Overwatch League just announced a couple of punishments for several players, including two of Dallas Fuel’s notorious troublemakers. Timo “Taimou” Kettunen has received a $1,000 fine for calling another player a “fucking faggot kid” on his personal Twitch channel this past January. Félix “xQc” Lengyel has gotten hit…
It’s been a rough past few days of a rough month of a rough first season for Dallas Fuel, the Overwatch League’s most star-studded team. Today alone, one member, Timo “Taimou” Kettunen, finally apologized for using a homophobic slur on stream, while another, Félix “xQc” Lengyel, said he might quit the team entirely.
I used to main Mercy. Now I don’t even play Overwatch. Partly because the growing obsession with the game’s meta among friends was poison to my casual Overwatch habits, but also because Mercy only had one gun.
Heroes of the Storm’s game director says Blizzard is looking into one of the game’s streamers frivolously reporting teammates after losing a match.
“Hey Orisa, awesome tanking!” one of my Overwatch teammates typed into chat after we lost a match a couple months ago. “Our Mercy was great, too!” The first time I saw this happen, I was pleasantly surprised. These days, though, I find myself overcome with a different emotion when confronted with an egregiously kind …
Ever taken a long, hard look in the mirror and seen a face that doesn’t feel like your own? Overwatch’s latest hero, flail-slinging support Briggite, is having that problem in a very literal sense.
According to an ESPN report, someone filed a support ticket with Blizzard after Overwatch League player Taimou called another player a “fucking faggot kid” on a Twitch stream on January 23. The Overwatch League has yet to comment publicly, while his team, the Dallas Fuel, sent this statement to Compete:
Host Malik Forté came on during a halftime break in today’s Overwatch League to take a chunk out of a lemon in front of a live audience. Don’t worry, it’s for a good cause.
Hearthstone’s Ranked Mode is back online after extended maintenance and players will receive three Kobolds and Catacombs card packs as consolation for the downtime. Maybe you’ll get the extra Carnivorous Cube you’ve wanted.
It’s been nearly 14 years since Blizzard launched the world’s most popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game. You’ve had plenty of time to get your affairs in order before finally taking the plunge into Azeroth. Don’t worry, the World of Warcraft hasn’t passed you by. You just might need a little help…
Overwatch fans have totally fallen for Brigitte Lindholme, the game’s latest hero. Fans have known about the character for a while. She was last seen in the November 2017 Overwatch short, “Honor and Glory,” and were hoping she’d end up as the next hero. They’re already making fanart, jokes, and realizing they’ve been…
Hearthstone is about to get a feature that fans have been begging for since its earliest days—a mode that lets you run your own organized tournaments from within the client.
After a week of teasing, Blizzard has confirmed that Overwatch’s newest hero is Brigitte Lindholm, daughter of bearded turret lover Torbjorn.
I have a friend who’s made it his life’s work to master every hyper-annoying character in competitive video games. When Overwatch first came out, he made a beeline to Junkrat. Ever since, I’ve looked upon the simpering trash gremlin with scorn and strife. Today, I’m humiliated to admit that I was wrong.
