World of Warcraft is one of the biggest and most popular MMORPGs around the globe. It has been around for more than a decade now and it is one of the favourites for gamers worldwide. If you haven’t played the game yet, then the World of Azeroth awaits you with a thrilling adventure. Here are some of the tips that can be really useful for any beginner in World of Warcraft.
Buying the game will cost you some money. Before going to buy it, its best to go to the game website and check for the minimum system requirements for the game. And then you can match it with your computer system configuration. One of the best things about the game though, is that the system requirements are very basic and most systems would be able to run the game comfortably. But it is always a good practise to confirm is your system is lacking any of the areas and then upgrade your system if that’s an option.
Not all gamers like the same kind of games. It may happen that you don’t like a game which is really popular. And buying the game even before knowing that can end up being a waste of money. Finding just the right game for a gamer is like winning a progressive jackpot. Once you’re done with the trial version, you’d know if it’s the right game for you and can then buy it. It generally doesn’t matter how good a gamer you are. Until you are really interested in the game, you would not want to spend your time on it. You can rather look for alternatives more suited to your gaming style.
Once you start playing, one of the things that all players would tell you is to find the right server for yourself. Going for a random server may not be a wise decision. You wouldn’t want to go for a server for beginners and also not one for experts. The crowded servers also don’t allow you to truly and comfortably explore the World of Azeroth. But you should also avoid server with very less players because they can turn out to be boring. A healthy crowd should generally be preferred. One of the things you can do is ask your friends and join them on their server so that the game is more fun. You may also want to keep an eye out for the great tournaments organized by WOW for gamers worldwide.
Next step is to choose your character. There are 2 factions in WoW, the Hordes and the Alliance and each has 7 playable characters. You can choose the character you like and then go on to choose a Warcraft Class from a set of 12 classed on the game. You can then start playing and get comfortable with the character you have chosen before you start playing full throttle. Another part of the game is to choose professions and specialization. Once you are done with all this. You are set to start a great gaming experience.
Cross platform support is now a very essential thing for most of the multiplayer games, especially in 2020, and when games come with this feature, players are always in love with them. So, the article is going to focus on the best games that you can play across platforms in the current year.
Now, consoles have been the exclusive platform for games for a very long time, and the popularity of consoles grew because of that exclusive setting, where games are designed only for the consoles. So, in order to enjoy those games, the player must buy the consoles they are designed for. Because of console exclusives, people now tend to select between consoles, preferring some over the others.
One area that doesn’t get the recognition it perhaps deserves is perhaps online slots and casino games. These games must be designed to be used across a multitude of platforms, from desktops to smartphones (with dozens being released every year). For anyone looking to play some of the latest games, you can use sites here, which all offer top casino gaming software to their players.
But it is now very easy for today's players to own multiple consoles and platforms, and they seek to sync their games over all those platforms. It does not end there; most players also like to enjoy these games with their friends, who may not have the same consoles as them. That is when the cross platform games come handy. This is why people that love multiplayer games appreciate cross platform games more.

Blizzard have announced that Diablo III Season 21 will begin July 3, soon after their next patch. Here we give details of the brand-new Season buff, the new class sets, and a handful of item and skill adjustments coming in Patch 2.6.9!
Starting with Season 21, Blizzard have reintroduced previous Seasonal Rewards to make them available to players who may have missed them the first time around. For Season 21, this means awards originally available from Season 9 are returning to the Season Journey.
Know though, Blizzard are continuing to provide new End of Journey rewards as introduced in Season 17, with two new cosmetic rewards for those who complete the entirety of the Season journey. You can show your worth in the Trial of Tempests to earn the Stupendous Contraption pet and the Industrial Portrait Frame.
As well as the Chest and Gloves slots of the exclusive Conqueror Set, you'll also be able to earn the Pandemonium portraits and the cute and craggly Rocky pet first introduced in Season 9.
If you've been busy slaying demons for the past few Seasons and reached Conqueror in the Season Journey each time, you’ve probably accrued a few extra stash tabs. You'll earn one additional tab each Season by finishing the Conqueror tier, up to a maximum of five:
Want to prepare your Conquest plan for Season 21? Here are the challenges you’ll face!
For Curses!/Stars Align, pick any Cursed Chest event that requires killing monsters and defeat over 350 or more at level 70 on Torment X or higher. Also returning for Season 21 is Sprinter/Speed Racer, where you’re challenged to complete the entire Diablo III campaign from Act I to Act V at level 70 in under 1 hour! Next is Avarice/Avaritia, where all that glitters is gold—that is, if you can complete a 50 million gold streak outside of The Vault or its Inner Sanctum. We're also bringing Thrill/Superhuman, which requires completion of a Greater Rift level 45—solo and without any Set items equipped. And lastly we'll be bringing back Speed Demon/Need for Speed, meaning you'll need to beat a Torment X Nephalem Rift at level 70 in 2 minutes. Best of luck!
Finally, the Class Sets rewarded for completing certain chapters in the Season Journey courtesy of Haedrig’s Gift have rotated once more. We’ve listed the available Sets below. For those new to Seasons, here’s how it works:
Completing Chapters 2, 3, and 4 of the Season Journey will reward you with three of Haedrig’s Gifts. Each Gift contains a few pieces from one of your Class Sets. Players can only unlock one Class Set in this manner per Season across Hardcore and Non-Hardcore, so choose wisely!
The set you receive depends on the class of the character you’re playing when you open each Haedrig’s Gift. To collect a full Class Set, you’ll need to open all three on the same character.
Here are the sets granted by Haedrig’s Gift in Season 21:
Here you can find the final patch notes for the most recent update for Diablo III, Patch 2.6.9. Changes specifically from the original PTR have been highlighted in RED.
Developer's Note: With the adjustments coming in for a few past Necromancer sets and abilities, we will continue to evaluate the performance of the new set this season and may make additional adjustments in future seasons if we believe they are necessary.
Added "non-static" to the wording of the legendary power's description. The functionality is unchanged
These will now warp to the Necromancer if they begin to move too far away from the player. This only works if the Necromancer is wearing the Masquerade of the Burning Carnival set or Haunted Visions.
Simulacrums cannot use Grim Scythe (with Haunted Visions) or Skeletal Mage unless the Necromancer had either of those abilities while the Simulacrums were created.
No longer consumes pets.
Final Service now activates before Simulacrum's Self Sacrifice.
Blizzard have announced that they will be launching a 2-week PTR starting May 21st.
We have all the patch notes and details for you, so you can be ready to take part in a week's time. Blizzard are testing two new class sets, and loads of Legendary item changes in Patch 2.6.9 and we have the notes for you here.

To participate in the public test, you must have a Diablo III game license attached to a Battle.net account in good standing. In addition, you will also need to download and install the Blizzard Battle.net desktop app if you have not already done so.
Step 1: Restart the Battle.net desktop app.
Step 2: Navigate to the Diablo III tab on the left-hand menu.
Step 3: On the Diablo III screen, there is a drop-down menu right above the "Play" button (note that this may say "Install" if you do not have Diablo III currently installed). Select "PTR: Diablo III" from this drop-down menu before proceeding.
Step 4: Click Install to begin the installation process.
Your PTR account will be created automatically if you do not already have one. The PTR is available in all supported languages, and accounts from all regions are eligible to participate. For additional assistance with installing and launching the PTR visit the support page.
The option to copy your existing Diablo III characters from your live account to the PTR will be available and can be done directly through the PTR client. However, only one region per account can be copied at a time. So, if you choose to copy characters from your account in a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost.
Step 1: Log into the live game and then log out.
Step 2: Log into PTR client and create a level 1 character. After you're done, return to the main character screen.
Step 3: Click on the "PTR Copy" button located in the upper right-hand corner. (The PTR Copy button will not appear in-game until you have created a new level 1 character.)
Step 4: Select your region.
Step 5: Click "Copy." This will copy all characters on your account from the selected region.
Step 6: You will be disconnected from the PTR client.
Step 7: Log back in. Your copied characters will be available for play.
Please note that you can only copy characters from one gameplay region at a time. If you choose to copy characters from a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost. In addition, you can only copy characters over to your PTR account once every 24 hours. Attempting to copy characters before this cooldown is up will result in an error.
The world of eSports grew rapidly and it continued this trend in recent years with more and more people interested in the phenomenon. Gamers, spectators and people that like to bet on the outcome of eSports matches are all contributing to the success of a very entertaining industry that enjoys a welcomed boost in recent times. With most of the sporting events canceled or postponed, more and more punters look at eSports as the alternative to keep having fun while backing up their favorite teams for a positive outcome. Even though it goes without saying that CS:GO is the most popular game among eSports, there are several other games out there that enjoy a lot of popularity. It’s no wonder that Blizzard has several titles in the race as well since they’re a huge developer and publisher. Today, we’re taking a look at the most popular eSports developed by Blizzard and what makes them appeal to gamers.
Even though it was launched long before eSports became a thing, Starcraft Brood War was the first Blizzard game to generate a huge wave of online games, tournaments, and contests. It was no wonder that with the launch of Starcraft II in full eSports era, Blizzard was going to make some waves in an industry controlled by shooters. Released in 2010 with the first part of the series, Wings of Liberty, Starcraft II received incredible reviews from both critics and gamers and was quickly adopted by the big esports competitions. It all started in South Korea and slowly evolved all across the globe. Furthermore, Starcraft II is credited with making eSports popular across the globe, just like StarCraft Brood War brought this phenomenon in South Korea. The StarCraft II World Championship Series was the first big tournament built around the game and it kicked off in 2012. Other big events such as the Intel Extreme Masters and Dreamhack included StarCraft II in their schedule.
Another huge success in the world of eSports for Blizzard comes from Overwatch. This FPS is also described as a hero shooter since it allows the players to choose a hero out of over 30 characters. Each time is comprised of six players, and the goal is to eliminate the opposing team to win the game. It was obvious that just like CS:GO a shooter that also gives special abilities to each character is going to enjoy a lot of success. And Blizzard’s bet with Overwatch turned out to be a very inspired one because the game was rapidly included in all big eSports competitions. The variety in maps and characters allowed Blizzard to maintain the game relevant for a long time and even though it was launched in 2016, the game is still extremely popular nowadays despite the launch of Overwatch 2 has been teased by the publisher for quite some time.
Launched in 2014, HearthStone is another huge success for Blizzard. Even though it wasn’t developed with eSports in mind, this game that builds on the Warcraft series lore was transformed into one of the top eSports games by the users. So, it’s no wonder that the game has its own World Championship and is also part of big tournaments like the ones hosted by Major League Gaming and ESL. Besides the warcraft lore, HearthStone was welcomed as an eSport because of its fast-paced gameplay and accessibility.
Even though it was designed as an online game, World of Warcraft - just like many other Blizzard games that enjoyed a huge success as eSports - was not intended to become an eSport sensation. However, with the Arena World Championship, everything changed, and WoW players are more and more interested in enjoying their favorite game while competing with other teams out there. Recently, on top of the Arena World Championship, Blizzard also added the Mythic Dungeon Invitation which is one of the best player-vs-environment available at this point. It was introduced in 2017 and it enjoyed huge popularity right from the start. Another game mode that makes World of Warcraft fit for eSport success is Race to World First which is a mode that exists ever since WoW raiding started. However, with the launch of the Battle for Azeroth, the Race to World First started to change for good. Through a partnership between Red Bull and Method, a leading esports team and guild, the event started to be hosted at the Gaming Sphere in London.
Even if you were not into esports before but you loved to enjoy these Blizzard games online, perhaps it’s time to give them a chance. Especially during this period when good sports entertainment is quite hard to find. Is it boring to stay at home?
