Legion: Alpha becomes Beta

Well, that answers my previous question, I was in Alpha. I opened up my battlenet client this morning and Alpha has turned into Beta. A quick google search reveals that that happened 6 days ago! Two months in and my Demon Hunter is still level level 99 and a bit. I wonder if character copy will work now, I'll try when I get home. I suppose it will be busier now. I was going to say that any major bugs will be fixed now that it's Beta, but I didn't even find any minor bugs. Not even textures missing like there was with the WoD Alpha. Hopefully we'll be able to try out some raids soon :)

Legion Alpha Access

I went to log in tonight to do my dailies and spotted "Alpha: Legion" in my region list. Many GBs of download later and I had a Demon Hunter called McBoatFace!

6.2 Mail Box Improvement

I've finally got round to emptying my mains mail box of 250+ emails. Why now?

Because most of those mails were from the postmaster for salvage that couldn't be delivered to my bags.

Why had I left it so long? Because you couldn't open all. This was because once you had removed the items from the mail you then had to go and physically delete the empty mail. Now it auto-deletes once it is empty. Finally!

Hearthstone - Blackrock Mountain - How to Beat Majordomo Executus / Ragnaros the Firelord

Is that title long enough?

So, anyway, after a bit of a false start with the second adventure (been playing too much WoW!) I had started working my way through it.

I was playing with an agro mage deck and won every match first time up until Raggy.

It was rather annoying, I was playing on auto pilot and not knowing what to expect when I finally managed to kill Majordomo I was then gutted to be wiped off the board when Raggy appeared.

I gave up at that point for a week or so and came back to it again and whatever I did I could not survive all those giants and then have enough to then get through another 18 health when Raggy spawned.

The last few days I've been playing ladder and my paladin deck has been doing a very good job so last night with 4/5 paladin wins on the quest I decided to at least have a try with him against Raggy.

Well, without even mulliganning I got equality which was a good start, all I needed was a consecrate and I'd be able to deal with the usual 7 board of giants on turn 6 that usually kill me.

The first thing I top decked was consecrate - Happy Days!!

A combo of  Undertakers, Knife Juggalos and lots of low cost deathrattle minions soon ensued leading up to the usual turn 6 (I think) Giant Fest.

Equality/Consecrate FTW!!!

Now what do I have in my hand? Leroy - How very apt. I already have a Knife Juggalo and a 6 attack Undertaker on the board and when I deploy Leroy and then Argent Protector him at least one of his whelps gets knifed.

Raggy is then put down to 4 HP and next turn is dead. On the first attempt - oh yeah baby!!!

Overwatch IS Titan!

Blizzards new IP has been announced at BlizzCon 2014.

Overwatch. The Movie looks awesome and the gameplay looks great. I can't wait to get hold of it.

And it's looking to go Beta soon (TM)!

I've been wondering recently what is going to appear in that last box on the launcher ap, I guess we have our answer (saves me writing that post about it now!)

But how did they get this all done without anybody knowing about it? My theory is that Overwatch IS actually Project Titan, and they didn't can it after all .. answers on a postcard to ...
