CURRENT/UPCOMING EVENTS / PATCH NOTES
Ril: XP Boost Event – Players who log in to the Americas region between the hours of 12:01 AM PDT on June 9th and 11:59 PM PDT on June 15th will receive a 50% XP boost.
Mike: The Mayhem Begins Event Recap – Showed a sneak peek of the upcoming Eternal Conflict update which we will discuss more about later in the show. This update hits the PTR on June 23.
Kali: If there are no issues, the update will go live June 30 and will include new maps, heroes, mounts, and skins from the Diablo universe. Recap VOD from The Mayhem Begins Event via the link in the show notes.
Ril: The Butcher is the first new hero that was announced as part of the Eternal Conflict update! You can see a demo video of The Butcher via the link in the show notes. [Go over his passive, Q, W, E, & R]
Kali: Trikslyr announced on the forums that Overwatch characters will only be added to Heroes after Overwatch officially launches. This makes sense, it seems sort of silly to release characters from a game that you can’t even play yet into another game.
Ril: The Battlefield of Eternity was announced at BlizzCon 2014, and will now officially be released as part of the Eternal Conflict update! It will be a 2 lane map with a teamfight centric mechanic.
Mike: (1) Immortals – Two boss Creatures that fight each other until Heroes intervene. The Winning Immortal joins its team in-lane to help push. (2) Siege Golem Camp – Three Khazra.
Kali: (1) Bruiser Camp – Two Dogs and a Shaman that resummons the Dogs until he dies.
(2) Easter Eggs not present on the hands-on demo, but will be for the map’s release. You can see a demo video of The Battlefield of Eternity via the link in the show notes.
Do enjoy the show, and sorry again for the lateness in editing/posting!
