I'm intending on decommissioning the Mumble server on 6/30 and moving us to Discord instead.
Don't be left out -- join the Archon chat server today!
Legion pre-patch imminent?
Unconfirmed rumblings around the 'net suggest that the pre-patch for the Legion expansion could possibly be unleashed on July 19th. This will implement major changes to every class, and kicks off a series of quests that ultimately leads to demonic invasions across Azeroth.
If you're still attempting to complete unfinished Warlords content, the clock is ticking. The Legion is coming!
Testing isn't fun
No. No, it isn't
Patch 7.0.3 hits PTR!
The Legion pre-patch, which implements a huge chunk of the new mechanics and systems for the upcoming expansion, has just been released onto the Test Realm. While we still don't have an official release date, making the patch available for public testing implies it'll be sooner rather than later!
Legion Release Date Announced!
World of Warcraft: Legion, the 6th expansion for our favorite MMO has been officially announced as releasing on August 30th, 2016. If previous trends hold true, that means the pre-launch patch should hit sometime the end of July. Still plenty of time to take advantage of your garrison gold generators before it's time to close up shop and unload all the soon-to-be-worthless Warlords items.
Here's hoping we see a bunch of familiar faces so we can consider casual guild raiding once again!
Overwatch Beta Imminent?
The official Overwatch twitter account released a screenshot today that could be interpreted to hint at an impending announcement:

Note the crawl at the bottom referring to the "Atlantic Seaboard A.I. Summit 3/6-3/8" which just happens to coincide with PAX East. Could this be the big beta announcement for which I've been waiting impatiently since BlizzCon??
World of Warcraft 10th Anniversary
I received an unexpected package from Blizzard on Friday. Apparently they sent a reward to everyone who started their account at launch and has maintained it throughout the entire 10 year history of WoW. The statuette is a scale replica of the Orc Wolfrider that guards the entrance to Blizzard HQ. Very cool!
