When World of Warcraft first came out, it meant a lot of different things to a lot of different people. Now that WoW Classic’s been announced, that’s become a problem—one that’s forced Blizzard to step in and pry people’s figurative hands off other people’s figurative throats.
At Blizzcon 2017, the Heroes of the Storm team announced the debut of Overwatch’s Hanzo and World of Warcraft’s Alexstrasza with a cinematic featuring the two dragon-themed characters facing off.

For years, Blizzard has been trying to put the “war” back in Warcraft. During an interview at Blizzcon last weekend, game director Ion Hazzikostas told Kotaku he thinks he’s finally figured out how to make it happen. But first the designers have 13 years’ worth of problems to work out.
The years have not been kind to fans of Warcraft’s real-time strategy roots. Before each BlizzCon, a dwindling contingent of hopeful fans prays for Warcraft IV to no avail. But WoW’s next expansion Battle for Azeroth might contain the next best thing.
When Vaelanor heard the announcement of World of Warcraft Classic last Friday, he says he broke into tears.

On the BlizzCon show floor this weekend was a massive World of Warcraft diorama. There are 10,000 characters in it, but here’s the crazy part: each figure is based on an individual BlizzCon attendee’s actual in-game character. It’s totally wild.

Last night Blizzard brought the banhammer down on botters and scripters in World of Warcraft, passing out six- to eighteen-month suspensions for players caught using a number of popular third-party programs. Watching the programs’ forums fill up with ban reports is a hell of a thing.
Gul’dan is a pivotal figure in Warcraft lore, a powerful warlock and founder of the whole dang Orcish Horde. When he finally became a raid boss in World of Warcraft earlier this year, it was a Big Deal. Even now, he’s no cakewalk to fight.

This is it. After fleeing from their home world thousands, hundreds or dozens of years ago (depending on lore revisions), World of Warcraft’s Draenei are ready to take back Argus from the Burning Legion, with the heroes of Azeroth by their side.
