Not everyone is happy with some of the changes made to World of Warcraft in preparation for the upcoming Legion expansion. Aside from some minor annoyances, I’ve been having a blast. Being Squirrel Girl helps.
Game updates are weird. Sometimes developers don’t mention major changes because... well, I don’t really know. Depends on the game and the change. In Overwatch’s case, Lucio is now much better at both being a skater boy and saying see you later boy.
A Sacramento man has been arrested and charged with sending multiple death threats to Blizzard Entertainment, the developers of World of Warcraft and Overwatch.
Late last night, an innocuous post on the Overwatch subreddit provoked a frenzy to unearth secrets about the supposed Overwatch stealth hero Sombra, who has been teased over the last few months.

Overwatch’s sniper mom supreme, Ana, has been on the game’s public test servers for a couple days now. That might not seem like a ton of time, but for players obsessed understanding Overwatch’s every last in and out, it’s plenty.
Overwatch’s new hero, Ana, is a lot of things we don’t typically see in video games. She’s a sniper who heals people, an older woman, and a mother of a lady who lobs rockets at people’s faces for a living. Overwatch fans already adore her.
Blizzard made some major changes to StarCraft II’s ladder system this week, adding tiers and new visual cues that will help players determine just how well they’re doing—and why they can’t get out of Silver.

A new patch just went live on Overwatch’s public test servers, and it’s a doozy. It introduces Ana, the new support sniper/Mom of the Century, but that’s just the beginning.
