Blizzard comments on World of StarCraft, invites creator to HQ

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2520 days, 12 hours, 27 minutes ago
Friday, January 21, 2011 9:18:45 AM GMT
Blizzard has released a statement regarding the pulled YouTube videos of a StarCraft 2 mod by Ryan Winzen that turned the RTS title into a game more closely resembling World of Warcraft. While the developer admits that YouTube was asked to kill the videos because of the trademarked name "as part of our routine procedure," the mod itself will live on. "As always, we actively encourage development of custom maps and mods," Blizzard says in the statement, and it is "looking forward to seeing the continued d... (more)

World of StarCraft' finally a reality, created by modders

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2522 days, 13 hours, 14 minutes ago
Wednesday, January 19, 2011 8:32:30 AM GMT
Though it's slightly lacking in originality, a StarCraft-themed version of Blizzard's World of Warcraft always seems to come up while fans are discussing the company's possible upcoming projects. One group of modders got sick of the speculation, and made this dream a reality: Using StarCraft 2's powerful user-generated content tools, the team created a surprisingly beefy World of StarCraft game mode, a video demonstration for which is posted after the jump.

Blizzard launches StarCraft 2 Master League, plans for Grandmaster League

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2527 days, 11 hours, 37 minutes ago
Friday, January 14, 2011 10:09:38 AM GMT
Have you found competition in StarCraft 2's online multiplayer "Diamond League" to be unrewarding? Do you hang, effortlessly, from the very highest rungs of the tallest competition ladder? It's time for you to shed your burdensome chrysalis and ascend to your next challenge: the recently launched "Master League," which pits the top two percent of players from each region against one another for true StarCraft supremacy. If you're eligible for the new league, you won't have to do anything special to join;... (more)

WoW Cataclysm sells over 4.7 million copies in first month

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2530 days, 14 hours, 20 minutes ago
Tuesday, January 11, 2011 7:26:30 AM GMT
Having sold 3.3 million copies of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm on the first day, it was easy to guess that the MMO expansion would have little trouble going on to record-breaking sales in its first month on the market. And that's exactly what it's done, according to Blizzard Entertainment, who reports that the title sold through over 4.7 million copies since its December 7 release. And unlike the usual retail sales numbers, that includes both packaged copies and digital distribution. (more)

StarCraft 2 user-created map takes the fight into space

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2536 days, 11 hours, 52 minutes ago
Wednesday, January 05, 2011 9:54:36 AM GMT
While most of us would consider StarCraft 2 to be a space-themed strategy title, very little of the game actually takes place in the outer parts of space -- you know, the parts where no one can hear you scream. A custom map by the name of Star Battle fixes that oversight, pitting two teams of six players against one another in a massive, DotA-esque encounter. Only, instead of controlling fantasy archetypes, you control gigantic spaceships, which we think we can all agree is way cooler. (more)

World Of Warcraft: Cataclysm MMO Log Part Two: For The Alliance!

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2549 days, 11 hours, 3 minutes ago
Thursday, December 23, 2010 10:43:34 AM GMT
Kotaku's MMO reviews are a multi-part process. Rather than deliver day one reviews based on beta gameplay, we play the game for four weeks (or in this case, two) before issuing our final verdict. Once a week we deliver a log detailing when and how we played the game. We believe this gives readers a frame of reference for the final review. Since MMO titles support many different types of play, readers can compare our experiences to theirs to determine what the review means to them. (more)

Blizzard Confirms Titan MMOG

Earlier this month, a document revealing Blizzard's product slate was leaked, revealing quite a number of things the company would rather keep under wraps. Since it's release, Blizzard China general manager Ye WeiLun was reportedly fired over the leak while Blizzard HQ "reshuffled" the Chinese staff. (more)

StarCraft 2 Players Get 1 Free Name Change

Friday, November 05, 2010 8:28:11 AM GMT
Tuesday Blizzard announced that all StarCraft II accounts were granted one free name change. The company originally said back in August 2010 that the feature was in the works--essentially a "fix" for players who chose character names that typically didn't represent their multiplayer aliases because they were unaware of how character names were used.

Blizzard Sues StarCraft II Hackers

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2613 days, 14 hours, 8 minutes ago
Wednesday, October 20, 2010 7:38:39 AM GMT
Blizzard kicked off October by suspending or banning around 5,000 gamers from its just-released sci-fi RTS StarCraft II for using hacks, thus violating Blizzard's end-user license agreement. Now the developer is going after "Permaphrost," "Cranix," and "Linuxawesome" for allegedly developing and selling tools for StarCraft II hacks. According to the lawsuit, the three programmers have violated copyright law, Battle.net terms of use, and the end-user license agreement. (more)

Blizzard Banning SC2 Single-Player Cheaters Too?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2619 days, 15 hours, 1 minute ago
Thursday, October 14, 2010 6:45:24 AM GMT
So you're partial to cheating just a smidge when playing StarCraft II in single player. You don't cheat during multiplayer games, that's just bad form, but you sometimes indulge in a little unlimited minerals while playing offline. Well, perhaps you should think again, as Blizzard may be banning those who are cheating in singleplayer too. (more)

Blizzard addressing balance issues in StarCraft 2

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2624 days, 13 hours, 32 minutes ago
Saturday, October 09, 2010 8:14:03 AM GMT
Balance is an important issue in any RTS, and it appears that Blizzard has been paying attention to online game stats for StarCraft 2. Overall, the Protoss faction seems to have an unusually high win percentage against Terrans in certain leagues of play. Furthermore, while Zerg statistics don't indicate any huge disadvantages, Blizzard notes in the Battle.Net blog that "the feedback from the community as well as our own play experience tells us that improvements are necessary to make Zerg matchups feel a...
