Blizzard announced a while back that there was going to be a Legion themed café at Gamescom for all attendees to come and enjoy! Our team at Gamescom has managed to collect some pictures of the venue, as well as of the various activities and refreshments available! Check it out!

When you enter the café itself, there's no doubt that it feels like you're stumbling into a fel-fueled atmosphere; from the lighting to the decorations, Blizzard has done a superb job preparing the venue. It's definitely a bit daunting looking up those stairs into the eyes of Illidan!

As you enter the venue, you're faced with a huge orb of energy glowing in the centre, as you can see below:

Blizzard have made sure you're not just standing around and looking at the venue. There are so many things to do in the café, including accepting a quest from a questgiver, marked precisely by the yellow exclamation mark we all know and love:

In order to complete your quest, you'll need to take a selfie in front of the meeting stone and post it on social media. Once you complete your quest, you can return to collect your reward of an inflatable Illidari blade for everyone in the photo.

Once you've grabbed your warglaive, you can venture on to one of the many booths around the café, including:

  • A make-up booth, where you can have fel-inspired make-up put on.
  • A VR picture booth, which allows you to pose in a certain position and then turns you into a Demon Hunter of either Night Elf or Blood Elf descent and male or female.
  • You can try out the game on one of the stations around the café.

Once you're done with visiting the booths, why not sit down and relax with one of the many fel-themed items on the menu, as shown below:

Nice touch, Blizz, nice touch.

That's exactly what we thought too! You can't see it that well in the photo, but they also had Horde/Alliance make-up on

If you try to focus really hard on her quest-giving face, I swear I can see some red/black paint...

      What a tournament lined up for Blizzard at World Cyber Games 2019 in Xi'an.
      They got Hearthstone up and Warcraft 3 is finally back. Too bad Reforged won't be making it back in time. Hopefully when Warcraft 3: Reforged is out we will be seeing more tournaments with Warcraft competitions.
      You can even see the excitement of these games posting the official registrations on their twitter,
      for WC3:
      Hearthstone: https://twitter.com/HSesports/status/1105247640646754304
      Who knows maybe even one day we will get some Diablo tournaments if that is possible. Blizzard can host their own event as well with so many of their games having a great esports scene already.

      Layoffs at Activision Blizzard have been confirmed during the earnings call earlier today. The company plans to eliminate 8% of its non-development employees according to Activision Blizzard's CEO Bobby Kotick, who told investors that the main focus in 2019 is stabilization and restructuring due to missed expectations in 2018.
      UPDATE #2: President of Blizzard, J. Allen Brack, posted about the layoffs and Blizzard's future in more detail.

      Blizzard Community…
      Over the past few months, I’ve met with many people throughout Blizzard, talking about how we create our future. One thing that remains constant: we are committed to creating epic games and entertainment experiences. 
      Our development pipeline is strong, and we have the largest lineup of games that we’ve ever had. At the same time, Blizzard tries to have a level of craftsmanship and excellence in all that we do. Maintaining those standards as we continue expanding these worlds takes both time and talented developers.
      With that in mind, we have plans to add to game development. We are dedicated to bringing you more content across existing game franchises and bringing our unannounced projects to life. Esports and the Overwatch League are also important priorities, and we will continue to produce great competitive content. 
      To better support these priorities, we need to reorganize some of our non-development teams. As a result, we will be reducing the number of non-development positions in North America and anticipate a related process in our regional offices over the coming months subject to local requirements. This was an extremely difficult decision, and we want to acknowledge the effort of everyone who has contributed to Blizzard. To assist with the transition, we are offering each impacted employee a severance package that includes additional pay, benefits continuation, and career and recruiting support to help them find their next opportunity. These people are members of the Blizzard family—they’ve cared deeply and contributed greatly to our work here and we are extremely grateful for all they’ve done.
      As difficult as some of these organizational changes are, I am confident in Blizzard’s future and we will continue working hard to live up to not only our mission, but your expectations. We look forward to sharing everything with you when it’s ready.
      J. Allen Brack
      UPDATE #1: Community Manager Ythisens has been laid off.
      Placeholder for tweet 1095450053001371649 In an effort to reinforce the foundation for growth, the plan is to invest more for their biggest, internally owned franchises and de-prioritize games and initiatives that are not meeting their expectations by reducing certain non-development and administrative-related costs across their business.
      Blizzard had 35 million MAUs in the quarter (down from 37 million MAUs in Q3 2018), as Overwatch and Hearthstone saw sequential stability and World of Warcraft saw expected declines post the expansion release this summer.
      Building on a 11-year partnership, Blizzard extended its joint venture with NetEase to publish its games in China through January 2023.
      Activision Blizzard plans to increase development resources by 20% for Diablo, Hearthstone, Overwatch, and World of Warcraft.
      Destiny did not meet financial expectations of the company, so they transferred publishing rights for the game back to Bungie.
      Call of Duty was the #1 selling console franchise worldwide in 2018, a feat accomplished for nine of the last ten years. Full-game downloads for the game were over 40% of console sell-through. A mobile Call of Duty title is planned for the franchise.

      According to Bloomberg, Activision Blizzard plans to cut hundreds of jobs due to slowing sales Tuesday. 
      The layoffs are reportedly part of a restructuring aimed at centralizing functions and boosting profit. Activision Blizzard shares dropped by 2.5% to $42.88 on Friday. Hearthstone and Overwatch playerbase is shrinking. Destiny 2 sales were disappointing, and as a consequence, Activision handed over publishing rights for the game back to Bungie earlier in January. Two CFOs left Activision Blizzard so far in 2019. Spencer Neumann left to join Netflix and Amrita Ahuja left the company for Square.
      Video game giants are struggling and it's not just Activison Blizzard. Electronic Arts share fell 13% Wednesday, following the latest Battlefield V disappointment. Activision Blizzard is supposed to announce these mass layoffs Tuesday. What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
