Blizzard.com hasn't updated their news RSS since June of 2011. Since that is what BlizzBot checks for new data, there hasn't been any news to report. Blame blizz, not the bot ;)

RISK: StarCraft® Sweepstakes
« Reply #61 on: March 21, 2012, 04:00:17 am »

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.

Blizzard Timeline Revealed!
« Reply #73 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!

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® Charity Auction: Thank You!



Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of the World of Warcraft® community around the world who took part in our recent server-blade charity auction, we’ve raised more than $330,000 USD to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.


 


In October 2011, we announced that a selection of retired World of Warcraft server blades -- hardware that once housed World of Warcraft realms -- would be made available for auction for this great cause, and you responded by opening up your hearts and your guild banks. Thanks again for your support and for helping to make a difference in the lives of children.
