It's that time again, Blizzcon time. I'm out here in Anaheim and Frst will join me tomorrow to help with all the coverage.

There are no PvP specific panels this year, but the tournament will be running throughout the convention and we'll be bringing you live updates from there.  We will also be covering the opening events live as well as panels we think may be interesting to you guys. So, you'll want to stay tuned in this weekend to make sure you stay up to date.

Jack Black before heading out on stage.

Also, we would love a chance to talk to any of the players competing. If you're on one of the teams competing, look for myself or Frst loitering around the tournament stage area. We will be wearing ArenaJunkies t-shirts. (Would love to hear from ANY AJ members who might be here as well, so stop by and say hi if you see one of us.)

Any thoughts on what will be announced tomorrow? Back to Top

I'm getting a lot of questions about when we will be updating with Season 8 titles on everyone's profiles.

We're going to wait a little bit longer to make sure all the titles are here to stay and error free. After we're comfortable with that we'll start displaying Season 8 titles. So have a little patience with us, we'll get them up soon enough :P

Congrats to everyone who got the title they were going for. Back to Top
