(Insert expansion or new game speculation here.)
Hell, maybe we'll just hear about another Diablo III update. Also, maybe they'll tell us when the new StarCraft II: Covert Ops pack is coming.

(Insert what you want to be announced here.)
It'd be nice to know when that new Covert Ops pack is coming. Otherwise, I don't know. More Diablo would be nice in any form.

You know, I know a guy that performs here regularly. Ben Stewart. Lead singer of Songhammer. Pretty awesome guy. I met him through a friend back when he was in his old band, Conspiracy of Thought.

Here is some information about how to watch Blizzcon for free(unless you have a virtual ticket and if you do let me know, wondering if it's worth it).

Unless others disagree, keep us posted, please. :)

A few take aways i'll post on later:

* They are remaking Diablo in Diablo III
* New Necromancer class in D3 in 2017
* New Gadgetzan Hearthstone Expansion coming soon

Sweet! Did they mention when that Diablo remake might become available?

I checked in on the Twitch channel and it was like watching ESPN, but for gaming. They were talking about tournaments going on today. So, I tuned out.

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 11/04/2016 at 08:38pm

They mentioned the patch going live in the public test realm next week. So not too long it seems.

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 11/04/2016 at 08:42pm

Whoa, it's a patch? So that means it's free for those of us who already on D3?! Pretty cool! I never played the first one, so I don't mind that they're remaking it. I've barely played the 2nd, so I wouldn't mind them doing that one, too.

I wonder what the Necromancer class is going to be like, but I bet it's going to be pretty cool, maybe similar to the Witch Doctor (which I really enjoyed).

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 11/04/2016 at 08:45pm

I tuned back into the Twitch link provided in the link you gave us, but it's still like ESPN doing Overwatch tourney talking. Am I watching the right thing?

This is nice because the old game is somewhat long in the tooth and i've wanted to come back and play it myself so now is a good time.

Yeah, it was my fav class in D2. Lots of Skeletons and various evil incarnations. I bet they will drop more information soon.

Yeah, the opening ceremony is over and it's now eSports for the rest of the day.

I'm stoked about the new Diablo stuff. The necromancer is great but the D1 remake? That's just cool and unexpected.

Travis   Admin wrote on 11/05/2016 at 02:23pm

Actually the more I read about the D1 remake the less interesting it sounds. It's not a remake, just a filter over an already existing map it seems. :/

But this new armory is really amazing. People have been wanting a way to save builds for ages now.

Check out the new Necromancer video:

:( I was hoping for something sooner.

The Darkening of Tristram is on PTR and it looks like it may go live in January: http://www.shacknews.com/article/97674/diablo-3-update-243-on-ptr-with-original-darkening-of-tristram-content

As for the Necromancer it's coming out "some time in 2017"

Yeah, the Necromancer isn't soon, which I think is fine. The Necromancer was my favorite D2 class and if it came out tomorrow I wouldn't have time for it anyway. 2017? Sounds better to me. I think by then I wouldn't mind heading through the story again too.

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 11/16/2016 at 04:54am

I went through the story multiple times too recently, so I don't plan on doing that again (at least for quite a while). One of the articles I posted mentioned a recommendation of creating a new character for The Darkening of Tristram. I'd like to jump back into the game, there's still a lot I haven't played around with, which is something I intend to do with a Necromancer. Right now, I'm ready for it.
