Title: Ringing Bells and Taking Names at NASDAQ
Post by: BlizzBot on April 21, 2011, 03:58:49 AM

Ringing Bells and Taking Names at NASDAQ



On Monday, March 7 Blizzard Entertainment founders Mike Morhaime, Frank Pearce, and Allen Adham rang the closing bell at the NASDAQ stock exchange in New York in celebration of Blizzard's 20th anniversary.  

While most executives might have spent their free time discussing the financial market, Mike and Frank decided to squeeze in a game of StarCraft II instead. (Frank won their heated TvT mirror match, but it was close, in case you were wondering.)

While our founders were ringing the bell inside, Blizzard was taking over Times Square outside in the name of our global gaming community. We projected a seven-story-high video featuring cinematics from World of Warcraft: Cataclysm and StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty on the NASDAQ tower for a full hour -- marking the first time that Deathwing was ever rendered to scale.


Thanks to your support, Blizzard has been able to spend the last twenty years developing and publishing some of the most epic entertainment experiences ever. Please visit our 20th Anniversary site to take part in the celebration, and be sure to check out the extensive retrospective video we posted recently.

New Maps and Mods Tutorial: Missile Movers



We've just expanded the StarCraft II Maps and Mods page with the Missile Movers tutorial, located here. The missile mover system allows the map maker to control motion in dramatic and entertaining ways. While typically used to configure missile-based attacks, the underlying motion defined by the missile mover system can be used to drive a reaper’s body when it jumps or a spine crawler’s tentacle when it attacks. Add this tutorial to your toolbox and get more out of your custom map creations.

Cenarion Hatchling for Japan Earthquake Relief



Introducing the latest World of Warcraft companion up for adoption in the online Pet Store: the wild and noble Cenarion Hatchling! This little critter is the twin of the rare Hippogryph Hatchling pet players could randomly encounter in the first World of Warcraft Trading Card Game set, Heroes of Azeroth -- and he's emerged from the forests of Azeroth to lend a helping talon to some friends in need. For every Cenarion Hatchling purchased between now and July 31, 100% of the $10 USD adoption fee will be donated to the American Red Cross's Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami relief efforts. This support will enable the Red Cross to provide shelter, food, emotional support, and other assistance to victims of this disaster.


To learn more about the Pet Store, please visit the Pet Store FAQ.

In Diablo III, going it alone is a valid option... but it's not always the safest one. Fortunately, there are others in Sanctuary willing to risk life and limb to strike out at the nightmares sweeping the land. Head over to our new followers page to meet three such companions: Kormac the Templar, Lyndon the Scoundrel, and Eirena the Enchantress. While you represent Sanctuary’s greatest hope for salvation, it never hurts to have a friend watching your back.

In Diablo III, your characters will wield their various skills to devastating effect. But once you add a runestone to a skill, it’ll transform and become even more powerful. Runestones can alter nearly everything about a skill -- the way it looks, how many enemies it hits, and what happens to those unfortunate enough to be caught in its path.

In our newest systems article, we show off several examples of just how much runestones will change the game for each character class.

RISK: StarCraft® Sweepstakes



Want a shot at naming a territory on the upcoming RISK: StarCraft® game board? If you’re the lucky winner of USAopoly’s sweepstakes, you’ll get the opportunity to do just that. Visit USAopoly’s Facebook page between March 12 and March 19 to learn more and to enter, but be sure to read the official rules before you do.


Wage fierce battles across the Koprulu sector and vie for galactic domination in a version of RISK that’s set in the chaotic StarCraft universe. Choose from Raynor, Valerian, Artanis, Zeratul, Kerrigan, or Za’gara, and crush your enemies with their military strategies and accompanying terran, protoss, or zerg forces. With 42 otherworldly territories at stake, there are no perfect moves, no guarantees, and no lasting alliances -- what will you risk to secure victory?


RISK: StarCraft comes with over 290 playing pieces, including three race-specific bases: the terran Command Center, a protoss Nexus, and a zerg Hatchery. RISK: StarCraft launches this summer and will be available in North American specialty stores for a suggested retail price of $49.95. The game is designed for 3 to 6 players and is recommended for ages 10 and up.

Title: Blizzard Timeline Revealed!
Post by: BlizzBot on July 03, 2012, 10:00:19 PM

Blizzard Timeline Revealed!



Our anniversary page is now home to a timeline  detailing the 20-year history of Blizzard Entertainment. It covers nearly every major event, beginning in 1991 – when Mike Morhaime, Frank Pearce, and Allen Adham started Silicon & Synapse, the company that would become Blizzard – and taking us to the present day.



To help with the reminiscing process, we’ve packed the timeline with nostalgia-inducing images of old offices, “retro” box art, the graphics and haircuts of the 90s, some of our most recent game release events, BlizzCons, and the opening of Blizzard offices around the world. Take a look, but keep your eyes on the timeline page, because we’ll be updating it with more noteworthy occurrences in the future.


From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank the Blizzard community for supporting our games for over two decades – here’s to many more!

New Assets Purchased for Online Content Initiatives



As an important next step in its ongoing efforts to provide world-class entertainment, Blizzard has purchased IGN Pro League technology and assets from IGN. Along with this purchase, Blizzard is bringing onboard members of the IPL staff as the foundation for a new team based in San Francisco whose primary focus will be on creating high-quality web and mobile content in support of Blizzard games, while some IPL staff have joined Blizzard's existing eSports team.



“This new team will help us to further develop the rich media experiences that extend the fun and engagement of our games online,” said Itzik Ben-Bassat, Blizzard’s executive vice president of publishing. “This is a team of passionate gamers with a proven track record, and we’re looking forward to now leveraging their expertise and technology to support a variety of online efforts.”



Regarding the transaction, Peer Schneider, executive vice president of IGN, stated, “With the continuing evolution of the eSports space and the renewed focus on our core media brand, we made the decision to sell the IGN Pro League technology and assets and become agnostic in our competitive gaming coverage. Following Blizzard’s acquisition of IPL assets, IGN will partner with multiple organizations and cover their events.”

Amid Draenor’s untamed jungles and battle-scarred plains, a merciless new Iron Horde has been forged from the mighty orc clans of old. To save their own world from impending invasion, Azeroth’s heroes will need to explore the far reaches of this unforgiving land, achieving new heights of power on their way to the new level cap of 100. To establish a foothold on Draenor, players will construct, command, and expand their own Garrison, a customizable base of operations and refuge for the followers you recruit to your desperate cause. Warlords of Draenor also empowers players to instantly boost one character to level 90, making it so anyone can join the battle for Draenor alongside their friends.



For more information, check out the official press release, and visit the new Warlords of Draenor website for screenshots, details about the new features, concept art, the announcement trailer, a sneak peek at updated player character models, and more.

Happy 20th, Warcraft II!



Originally released in December 1995, Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness expanded the conflict between the Horde and the Alliance to truly epic proportions. In addition to introducing characters and settings that would serve as a rich foundation for many future adventures across a range of games and other media, Warcraft II was our first release to support simultaneous online combat between more than two players (up to eight), and it kicked off our tradition of including a robust map editor with our real-time strategy titles.


In many ways, Warcraft II's popularity had a huge influence on much of what was to come for Blizzard—from the creation of Battle.net; to StarCraft; to World of Warcraft and the upcoming Warcraft movie; and best of all, to our cherished connection with the passionate, dedicated fellow gamers around the world whom we are proud to call the Blizzard community. Happy 20th anniversary to Warcraft II . . . and thank you, everyone, for helping to make Azeroth such a vibrant and inviting place all these years.

Blizzard Forms New Division



Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. has formed a dedicated division within the company that will handle management, operation, sales, and distribution for Overwatch® esports programs, including the Overwatch League and Overwatch World Cup. In addition to bringing together some of the most talented people from across the entire organization, this effort includes the full integration of Major League Gaming, acquired in 2015, into Blizzard and also leverages some of the best and brightest from traditional sports, esports, and entertainment.



The new division, which will retain the MLG name, will build on Blizzard's nearly 20-year history as a leader in esports and leverage MLG's extensive experience with live events and content distribution. It will also operate the MLG-branded media network, which will broadcast both Blizzard and Activision esports content as well as other premium gaming programming.



In addition, the associated teams and technologies will serve as the operational foundation, partnership hub, and media-production network for the Overwatch League as well as Activision’s Call of Duty® World League. This includes league management; team, media, advertising, and sponsorship sales; content development; and event production.



Blizzard’s separate esports team will continue to directly manage and operate the global esports programs for Heroes of the Storm®, Hearthstone®, StarCraft®, and World of Warcraft®, but will begin leveraging the new division’s capabilities for media production, sales, and distribution.



With these initiatives underway, Blizzard currently has multiple open esports positions, with more on the way. Apply now at jobs.blizzard.com, and stay tuned there for more esports openings in the weeks ahead.

We’re big fans of Destiny here at Blizzard, and we’re honored to be able to help the talented folks at Bungie and Activision bring their much-anticipated sequel to a new platform. Being on Battle.net will allow Destiny 2 to plug in to our existing global network, freeing up the developers at Bungie to focus their energy and resources on making the best and most fun game they possibly can. This also means Destiny 2 players will have access to our online social functionality, including chat with friends, the ability to see which of their friends are online in Destiny 2 or in Blizzard games, and the ability to stream gameplay directly to Facebook.


See the FAQ below for further platform details, and stay tuned for updates as we get closer to welcoming Destiny 2 and its players to Battle.net. To learn more about Destiny 2, head over to www.destinythegame.com.




Why are you adding a non-Blizzard game to Blizzard's platform?


We loved Destiny and think Destiny 2 is going to be a great game. Blizzard has an established and successful global internet infrastructure we’ve used for years to support our own games. Creating a new network client for Destiny 2, which is bringing the franchise to PC for the first time, would needlessly extend the development period for the game. We want to get our hands on Destiny 2 as soon as possible like everybody else, so we offered to share our PC platform with our sister companies for this release.



Does this mean other games are going to come to the Blizzard platform too?


Our focus in terms of supporting non-Blizzard games is solely around Destiny 2. Aside from potentially evaluating needs or opportunities for future Activision games, we don’t have any short- or long-term plans to support third-party games with Battle.net. It’s important to us to maintain our quality standards for any experience or service we’re putting in front of our players, which represents a big investment of time and effort on our part, so this is not something we’re jumping into lightly.



Does this mean I'll be able to use my Blizzard Balance to purchase Destiny 2?  


Yes!



Will Destiny 2 offer the same cross-game social features that Blizzard titles currently have?


Destiny 2 will be integrated into many of Blizzard’s existing social features—you’ll be able to chat with friends playing Destiny 2 the same way you already can for Blizzard games. Players will also be able to add friends and form parties the same way Blizzard gamers can. And, you’ll see a Destiny 2 status icon by your friends who are playing Destiny 2 the same way you do for friends playing StarCraft II, Diablo III, WoW, Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone, and Overwatch.



Where and when will Destiny 2 on PC be available?


We’re excited to work with Bungie to bring the PC version of Destiny 2 to every region Blizzard currently operates in. Bungie is actively working through the global details. We look forward to sharing additional information later this year.



Who will be operating Destiny 2’s servers?


Bungie will maintain Destiny 2’s servers; Blizzard’s servers will be used for features related to the Blizzard platform, such as login and social functionality.



And what about customer service?


Destiny 2’s gameplay customer service will be handled by Bungie; Blizzard will handle customer service for platform and shop issues specific to our service.
