Blizzard announces new Battle.net BattleTags {WoW}

Dec 15th 2011 5:57PM yeah, I was still hoping to get #1 or #0001 but it looks like they didn't give it to me even though my battletag was pretty unique (potatoeWoW).

Blizzard announces new Battle.net BattleTags {WoW}

Blizzard releases third-party API usage policy {WoW}

Dec 14th 2011 4:25PM So basically, Blizzard wants people to work for free (or for whatever pittance advertisement views pay).

That's entirely their prerogative, but it certainly puts a damper on the incentive to provide innovative services.

I'm glad I already paid for my AskMrRobot app.

They were talking about working on it full time since they had enough interested customers to quit their day jobs.
Now that they can't charge, I wonder if they will focus more on their SWTOR mr robot version.

Way to go Blizzard. -_-

Why you might like Blizzard DOTA {WoW}

Oct 28th 2011 2:18PM after reading the blizzard faq:
* when - they haven't announced yet. at least months away.
* how - it will be a custom map for starcraft II, but they haven't decided yet whether they will release it standalone.

When will Blizzard DOTA be released?
We don't have a release date we can share at this time. We'll have a better idea for a release window after we start beta testing.

Will there be a beta test? When will it start? How can I apply for the beta?
Yes, we do intend to run a beta test for Blizzard DOTA sometime within the next few months. We'll announce more details about how to participate at a later date.

Will it cost money to play? Will Wings of Liberty™ or Heart of the Swarm™ be required?
Currently we plan to offer a way to play Blizzard DOTA for free, possibly by including it as part of the StarCraft II: Starter Edition. However, we have not yet determined what type of content restrictions would be placed on those playing for free. We're also discussing the possibility of offering exclusive content to players, such as special heroes for owners of Wings of Liberty™ and Heart of the Swarm™ (in regions with standard box business models, just for example), but this is also still to be determined. We'll announce more details once those decisions have been finalized.

Oct 27th 2011 7:16PM I'm a wow player since WotLK.
I never played warcraft III and had no idea what DoTA was.

I've heard of League of Legends and had a friend explain it to me.

It seems like it would have been a no-brainer to mention that League of Legends is the same type of game, and would have been neat to mention that the creators of the original DoTA went on to create LoL (assuming what someone else said in the comments here is true).

Also, the closing sentences make me want to get the game.

How/when can I get it?
