>No Blizzcon thread
Anyone else excited?
literally not a single interesting game this year and the movie looks like shit
>Overwatch listed for $40 on Amazon
>Collector edition listed for $129
There goes my interest
Widow's skin looks rad tho
any1 knows if there will be any illegal streams for poorfags?
yup, but i am very curious how they will fuck up wow this time ;D
Other way around, F2P is the worst thing you can do to a game in terms of it's playerbase.
I don't have much interest in Overwatch anymore but I hope it's priced normally and not F2P. That's the only way it has a chance of going anywhere.
>implying diablo wouldn't be hidden somewhere in the back of the cargo train
At it right now actually. Autistic fucks near me. Should be fun.
which healthy esport isn't free? dota and lol are, csgo costs like 3 bucks on sale, starcraft 2 got big because of the first version and is now plummeting because it is not free. overwatch has no successful predecessor so it won't be able to build up a healthy esport scene for itself unless it's f2p and gains a fuckload of momentum, that's just not possible while being a 40$ game
THE SON OF A SHEPHERD NEEDS A STREAM LINK NOW, ED BOYS.
>HotS is going to get like 4 heroes announced
>they won't all be out for another 3 months because >Blizzard release schedule
why couldn't they have tried? It could have been so good if they tried
I'm fucking pumped to see the new heros and what other things they might add.
I honestly hope they change the formula for adventures since only game breaking stuff does enough to change the meta, like instead of 1 card for completing each section it's the 1 card for each boss then 3 or 4 for beating the last.
I haven't played since WotLK, save for some free weeks here and there every new expansion where I got to see how bad everything got.
I didn't care to try out my WoD free weeks.
My first Blizzcon. I'm in line outside. Any other /v/ros out here?
Holy shit, it hasn't even started and I can already smell the stench from the crowd.
I enjoy the cosplay competitions because it's just a fight between cringe and hotties.
You get the odd good ones too.
Here's a template. Hop to it, big guy.
waiting for the WoW reveal so I can finally put my WoW days behind me
add normal/heroic/mythic to LFD
you dont get loot from bosses you shouldn't be able to kill (killing boosters , and retards making groups to get boosted in the process)
same price for the token worldwide , not paying 30k , less 70k for something that cost 20k
>the cgi looks worse than the trailers for their games
How in the FUCK can they fuck up EVERYTHING?
Fuck Blizzard unless they announce World of Warcraft II
P.S. anyone want to do one of these for a Blizz cover? WoW? Warcraft? Starcraft?
I like this list but I'd add new races and some sort of new activity that would rope EVERYONE in so that we can actually participate in things as a community again.
I feel as though is everyone else around me were bots not much would change right now.
I miss vanilla guild culture ;_;
>still reading the hype train
>not learning from past experiences
Yell "September 2016" and see what happens.
>Holy shit, it hasn't even started and I can already smell the stench from the crowd.
Seriously? I'd imagine it would smell, but from outside it stinks? Have mercy.
>linkin park on blizzcon
It's like pottery.
>Anything but Hybrid Theory
Jesus Christ and even that isn't great
They're re-releasing Warcraft 3 HD.
Probably spending some of those mobile billions on a separate development team for current expansion content. You literally 'can' throw money at this problem but that requires taking a risk.
WoW is essentially dead and ever year Blizzard tries to string up the corpse of a game.
Overwatch will be a huge letdown with no story.
Does anyone even remember Starcraft II is a game?
Hearthstone is a stupid tablet p2win card game.
Diablo III is meh, and not even getting stage time.
Most likely no announcement of a new game as the focus will be on overwatch and their shit game from the shit genre known as mobas.
Blizzard has been dead for a long time, and we are all just watching its corpse decay more every year.
>They're re-releasing Warcraft 3 HD.
don't fucking lie to me you piece of shit
Official theme of Blizzcon 2015.
The hype for WoD was because Mists was actually a good expansion with a goofy setting.
So, of course people got excited, they thought they were getting BC 2.0.
Not lying, anon. Just google it, you can clearly see they are.
this was announced like 2.5 years ago, man
>yfw they hired the guy making Warcraft 3 HD in starcraft 2 map editor and are now committed to make it happen
the warcraft 1-3 remakes aren't going to be HD though. they're more just trying to port them over to modern computers with better netcode so they can run them through modern battle.net. we'll probably see WC3's graphics improve but WC1 and 2 will be unchanged
How is SFIV dead? Because V is coming out? It got a huge amount of attendees at Evo last year and it seems to be the only fighting game that Americans are interested in playing competitively for more than a few weeks, unlike KoF, BlazBlue, or whatever Netherrealm is currently pretending to support.
I just know one thing for certain.
If DPS shamans don't get a redesign I won't play legion, I'm tired of my class being subpar, fuck you Blizzard.
Its going to be super disappointing in reality. They may touch on the Artifact questline and trees. They might mention more features of the Class Halls and show a few images of each zone and dungeon. I am betting they won't even show any more examples of class revamps (if they even exist).
so, what's to be expected?
new adventure that fixes nothing and continues to make the game worse. everybody eats that shit up.
More of that Legion shit which looks like crap. Everybody eats that shit up. Free ashbringers, yo
pay to play, have to buy future heroes and their cosmetic skins. everybody eats that shit up.
War3HD? Not Warcraft 4? What is this madness? Are they really this stupid?
She's literally based on a hentai character.
Help think up rules for a Blizzcon drinking game.
>every time they make an announcement and the camera pans to the audience and there's little to no reaction
This nigga gets it
Probably info on overwatch being released on consoles too. Pay $60 and you get the game and all future heroes but if you want skins and voice packs you gotta pay extra for them.
What I can't wait for is the wow q/a tomorrow. Will there just be blizzard plants who wait in line to ask softball casual lore questions like that autist red shirt guy or will the devs actually get fucking roasted proper about their shitty ideas and shit game.
every time Metzen collapses on stage due to being so coked up take a shot
>Two elf lore zones
>An elf specific class
>A new faction of elves joining the lore
>Fighting against an enemy that wouldn't even be around were it not for the elves.
Blizz already said they would open up Demon Hunters for other race in future expansions, so there is no reason for me to play a huge fucking elf expansion.
You don't need to tell me that. I avoid this place like I avoid all deadbeats on the street.
Seriously guys what the fuck are they gonna announce tonight anyway? We know Legion is coming and it's shit, SC2's last expac comes out in a few days, Overwatch is just meh, Diablo 3 has been dead for a while now, some shitty movie nobody cares about except for a bunch of manchilds who love that kind of dumb cheesy stuff.
They better come up with something good
Even when Reaper was announced it got very little stage time. Diablo has been Blizzard's forgotten red headed step child for some time. Starcraft is in the same situation. If it isn't WoW, Overwatch or Hearthstone Blizzard doesn't care about it.
I'm just watching to see how awful everything they announce is.
Overwatch pre order is pretty much confirmed to not give beta access so I don't really give a shit about Blizzcon.
>expecting anything good
They don't have anything. They are going all in on the movie trailer, Legion and Overwatch news to carry them. Short of Warcraft 4 this Blizzcon is going to be shit as usual
If there's anything I want them to announce, it's to elaborate on what they're planning to do to PVP, because there's literally nothing else that would excite me in the game at this point.
Also confirmation on what the fuck they're doing to Rogues by putting them in the Dalaran Sewers.
This is the year of Warcraft 4
Legion is already confirmed to be either killing off all major characters or having them 'lose hope' This sets the stage for the Warcraft RTS reboots. No existing characters to hold them back
>they gave overwatch beta keys to streaming fuck heads who only care about making twitch bucks and not about the game itself
>actual people wanting to help make the game better are shit out of luck
Time to start streaming anon
Can't wait in two years time when legion finally comes out and all the drones resub again, only to unsub a month later. They should just make WoW 2 already for fucks sake, WoW is just a pathetic cash cow.
I'm not showing my face or voice on cam since I have nothing interesting to say and I'm ugly to begin with. Being only above average at shooters is just the icing on the cake.
>Post yfw they announce Warcraft IV
I seriously hope they never make it.
I'd lose my shit if they announced a WC4
>dat subtle ghostcrawler
>Warcraft 4 announcement trailer
>Final cutscene of Legion plays
>Cut to black screen
>Suddenly pan in WC3 Thrall in his tent in Kalimdor.
>"What a weird dream"
>he steps outside, Orgrimmar is still being constructed.
This is the only way
>One of their big three franchises that hasn't had a proper non-MMO entry in the series for 12 years
>He thinks they're just never going to make another Warcraft RTS
Don't get me wrong I fucking dread the day they announce it but to think they're just never going to make it is retarded.
>people actually want Warcraft 4 after the same people butchered Starcraft 2
No one plays RTS anymore,it doesn't make money
Also there's sc2
They already have
now all they're missing is a mobile game
Warcraft candy crush when
The opening ceremony starts in 2 hours, it's free to watch.
Start yelling about stream links when something's actually about to start, retard.
>well then they're missing a politically charged walking simulator
>>you play as young thrall and you deliver epic one liners to those racist humans
so a Lord of The Clans remake
Am I the only one who would play a third person RPG about Kael'thas?
Like a little spin-off game based on him and his adventures when he was young? Gameplay could be based on something like Magicka or Arx Fatalis
>tfw they announce the future of blizzard games is mobile and candy crush games
>something other than orcs
I would play the shit out of it, but if there aren't orcs, you can forget Blizzard even thinking of it.
It's the route a businessman would take, no joke. Mobile/casual gaming industry is far more profitable than the huge studio games according to two of my friends who are studying these industries for universities. I wouldn't blame them for following the money, they're a publicly traded company after all.
>tfw gotta go out with friends and can't stay in to watch Blizzcon
I know you don't like blizzard anymore /v/ but heres a stream for you
Yeah but that doesn't just make the whole traditional market be 100% not profitable anymore to care does it
Look at LoL it makes big money
Like let's assume TV does much more money than cinema.You'd still do cinema movies because there's also money to be had,even if a bit less.
Cinema goers aren't just going to stop going,like the whole pc market isn't going to just switch to its phone forever
there is one panel about the new patch and they stuck the D3 exhibit in a closet.
I'd say no.
Sure. I mean they will reveal stuff like that for every IP. I just wouldn't expect any big reveals because everything is pretty much announced. I'm wondering what they plan to do with SC2 going forward.
Red shirt guy did, and of course, he tries his hardest to play it off. The funniest part is how normies don't even understand why this shit is so hilarious and end up just making fun of the guy asking the question for stuttering and being fat.
You're right, yeah.
But due to the incredible increase in demand after smartphones and tablets are practically everywhere, there is now more money to be made. The margins for AAA-games have been falling for a while and it's a super risky business. Mobile gaming is just more profit for a lower risk, which makes it especially interesting to shareholders and investors.
Not to mention that the freemium game model is literally used just to fuck people over and get their money because of all the psychological effects it has (including tingling your brains "award system"). It's the dirtiest way of making money in the gaming business.
tl;dr: It's easier to make more money with mobile games. Investors follow profits.
people at blizzcon paid 200 bucks to attend.
they will be exited about everything blizzard is going to show them.
If only grim dawn or path of exile were capable of stripping this trainwreck of a game of its undeserved popularity, maybe blizzard would stop being shitheads and start working on something else than muh farming.
>tfw you will never attend Blizzcon and fuck some fat redhead cosplayer in a hotel bathroom
wait what the stream isnt free? now im confused i watched it a few years back and didnt pay shit
and why would i evenw ant to pay anything, blizzcon is basically a giant advertisment show for blizzard, the more viewers the better right
Remember when Blizzcon was about announcing awesome games and expansions?
Now it's about selling merchandize.
Why are cosplayers so slutty, regardless of what fandom they're trying to get attention from?
TAKE A SIP when:
>Someone screams 'For the Alliance/Horde'
>The applause is clearly delayed and awkward
>The camera shows someone bored in the audience
>Someone says 'epic'
>Something boring is announced
TAKE A SHOT when:
>An autistically detailed lore question is asked
>An actual hot girl shows of her cosplay
>There is a technical malfunction
>Someone says something akin to 'this is the best Blizzcon yet'
FINISH YOUR DRINK when:
>They actually announce a new game
>Someone comments on e-drama on stage
>Warcraft 1/2/3 HD is shown
DANTE MUST DIE MODE (down a new drink):
>Someone misspeaks on stage
>Anyone else excited?
Not really, just curious. I haven't been hyped since Draenor, and now this talents bound to weapons and a separated PvP talents ruined it for me.
>never attend Blizzcon and fuck some fat redhead cosplayer in a hotel bathroom
>never [...] fuck [...] some fat redhead cosplayer in a hotel bathroom
>never [...] fuck [...] redhead
Jesus Christ I swore to myself I wasn't going to feel today god damn it why do I have to be trapped in this life
maybe Metzen can set me up with some weird redhead groupie if I can score him some quality coke
did eh go back to school? He was always talking about that physics degree. He thinks sc2 is a joke? Just wait until you get a degree in physics and find out there are no jobs for you.
I've met some nice, sweet girls in a church, for what it's worth. For a while, I was convinced that women really needed to be involved in a religion to avoid that kind of thing, but then I found out one of them was in love with some guy from said church and ended up getting pregnant.
>the more viewers the better right
no, blizz feeds on the hooked elitists and conspicuous consumption niggers
more viewers doesn't matter since the info will be on a thousand websites in minutes
>Not fapping to blizz's asagi copy
shaking my head family to be honest
It's very easy, from what I hear. Half of the reason some guys go to anime conventions is to have sex with busted up whores that dress up like whatever flavor of the month cartoon character will get them the most attention at that given con.
I'm pretty sure no one thinks she's cute. They just like staring at her ass.
Who else overwatch beta here and laughing that at blizzcon people will actually line up and wait 45 min to play the game for 5 min.
I'll be at home comfy playing all day with zero wait times.
It depends on how hot they are, and whether they are a butterface. If you're not very attractive but have a decent personality and/or costume you can score with a butterface, but you better be real attractive
or have drugsto get a legit hot cosplayer with a pretty face.
On the other hand, if she's got a bad face AND body, even a pockmarked neckbeard can get with her
if he can make her laugh
Just because I don't like Widowmaker doesn't mean I'm a homosexual.
Widowmaker seems like the kind of girl who'd beat the shit out of you while spitting in your mouth and calling you worthless, and no one wants that, right?
>look at the current state of the skill tree
>impossible to make a move speed ranger build
Why the fuck would they do that? I was thinking of downloading again, nope.
My fantasy is to get abused by a woman, then pegged until I cry and she keeps hitting me and calling me a homosexual. And no, faggy traps need not apply, so no one even try to go that route.
So, what's the strategy ? Being good lookin', asking her for taking a pic maybe, then what ? Ask her for a drink ?
There is an anime con in 2 month where I live and I'm getting desperate
Doesn't look too bad desu
popular streamers like soda pretty much get pussy thrown at them
they get DM tweets, emails, twitch messages etc all the time especially before events like this from sluts acting coy saying they want to meet them etc.
they are pretty much the actors of the nerd world and if they're even slightly attractive they get free pussy all the time
I don't know. I've never been to a con or shown interest in 3d women and I'm just parroting what my Chad friend tells me. You know you could just hire an escort and get her to dress like a character if you want to blow money, right?
>tfw the kikes at twitch banned GIG for life
You mean they're there with a guy they convinced to tag along which they dump at the first sign of something better. Girls don't like being alone so they'll tolerate betas till they find something better.
>implying there aren't plenty that are slutty enough to blow fifty random mooks over the course of two days while their boyfriend sits in their room watching C-SPAN with a sad cold cup of hotel coffee as his only company
>When they make it to 18, they haven't ever learnt how to attract attention in a classy manner.
Do any women know this? More importantly, aren't most of these girls just putting on costumes without even knowing what half of this shit is? I was under the impression that cosplayers were much like booth babes, in the sense that they're just models that go to whatever event to promote whatever product half naked, even if they don't know about games, anime, cars, or whatever the fuck the convention was about.
Aren't you Yuros supposed to be sleeping anyway.
When it hits 11am.
This. Some whore I used to know told me that she sucked some guy's cock at anime convention because her boyfriend was ignoring her, then she told him for "revenge" and he still didn't care, making her cry. Nigga sounds alpha as fuck, but it turns out he's really just an autist, which also explains why he was dumb enough to date someone like this.
That's because you're used to watching moba and cardstone players.
Oh would you look at the time? It's time to remind the World of Warcraft fans that they are the most keked fans in existence pic related!
>pay $15 every month
>buy each new expansion with less and less content
>WoD cost the most fucking kek
>have to buy fanfiction level stories just to understand what's going on in the game
>there is a fucking in game shop
>tfw they demand money for you even to see the stream
the ride never ends
>Do any women know this?
Yes. Some of the rich attractive ones,usually not teenagers like those cosplayers either.
>I was under the impression that cosplayers were much like booth babes, in the sense that they're just models that go to whatever event to promote whatever product half naked, even if they don't know about games, anime, cars, or whatever the fuck the convention was about.
The hot ones don't know shit they're just doing their job.
The ugly fat ones probably play the game and are just that desperate for attention.
guess my money stays in my wallet then
>mfw they promised WoD would be different
not like this
