Big News Of The WeekEdit
Another Year, Another Arena TournamentEdit
Blizzard announced the 2010 North American arena tournament this week, and put forth nearly the same template as last year, with a few small changes. The arena tournament is a competition based on the Arena System in World of Warcraft. If you register for the tournament, you will be competing on regional tournament servers — separate from the live servers — for an opportunity to advance and play at the live events and win prizes. The cash prize package for the tournament amounts to more than $200,000.
Rumors And ScuttlebuttEdit
Look All You Want, But Don’t TouchEdit
Would you take a look at that? Blizzard launched a website that robbed millions of people of hours of their lives this week: The Concept Art Gallery. It’s a look back through Blizzard’s artistic history for at least 15 years of color, black and white, pencil, CG, you name it. It’s truly remarkable.
