Blizzard Product Schedule: Leak or Hoax?
2010/12/01 at 1:08 PM
A very interesting image is circulating on The Internet regarding a supposed leak of Blizzard's product schedule. The image is below, as well as the official response from Blizzard, an analysis of the source, and a general review of the info contained therein.
So, is this legit? Let's review!
A Brief Aside: StarCraft II Patch 1.1
2010/09/22 at 2:27 AM
So while Wowhead has not yet become SCHead, Blizzard's space RTS is still a game I play frequently and one I watch the news about. And one of the more important and recent news is that the first somewhat big patch was released on
Tuesday, September 21
- that's just yesterday, yes.
Here is the basic idea of the not-so-groundbreaking changes. Zealot rushes from a proxy Gateway are a little too powerful, especially against a Zerg (you know, 'cause rushing a Terran with their choke full of buildings
be done...), so the build time of the Zealot is being increased. Warp Gate cooldown also goes up for those of you who love spending 4,000 minerals in less than a minute by dropping a million Zealots. The Terran is getting a few (deserved, in my opinion) nerfs - longer build time on Reapers and Barracks, and less damage on Siege Tanks and Battlecruisers. Similarly to this, the Zerg Ultralisks' are having their base damage lowered, and their anti-building attack (Ram) goes away and is being replaced by their basic attack.
Let me give you the full patch notes aft
Answers to Common Community Questions About Real ID
2010/07/16 at 6:27 PM
The Real ID system, which we were introduced to a little while ago, was one of the most controversial things Blizzard has done in a long time. The feedback from the community varied from extremely negative to extremely positive, with all the points in-between. Not only has the community been divided in its opinions, but it has been quite vocal with them as well. Just a little while ago a post appeared on the official Battle.net StarCraft II blog; in it Blizzard answers common questions and addresses concerns about the Real ID functionality, features, and plans.
Check out the full article on the link below, or read over the highlights further down.
You will be able to remove yourself from your friends' Friends List. So if I and

Battle.net Facebook integration will allow StarCraft players (and later on, customers from other Battle.net games) to search their Facebook's friends list and easily send
Naxxramas' Thaddius Encounter Remade in Starcraft II
2010/06/14 at 12:24 PM
Move over Cataclysm (at least, for now) -
is on its way! While not all Warcraft fans are Starcraft fans, I think more than a few of you may find this interesting:
encounter remade as a single-player scenario in Starcraft II! Created with the Starcraft II Galaxy Map Editor released a few months ago, this campaign brings a group of noble Terran in to face one of World of Warcraft's least "noob-friendly" encounters, complete with intense
action! Blizzard showed off an incredibly impressive demonstration of the Galaxy Map Editor's power back at last year's BlizzCon, and so far beta participants have created some pretty interesting Starcraft II custom scenarios (like
Supply Depot Tetris
). Check out the video after the break!
StarCraft II and Diablo III Forums Added!
2010/06/04 at 12:56 PM
I know we're not exactly your number one resource for this sort of thing, but we all know how many people here are looking forward to the release of StarCraft II—and the Diablo franchise is so intimately connected with WoW, gameplay-wise, that we decided it was best to have a place right here on Wowhead for you guys to discuss the Diablo and StarCraft game worlds.
In light of that, we'd like to present you with your very own
forums! Any news, updates and info we have will automatically go there, and you now have a home for all StarCraft and Diablo-related discussion.
