Well, it's finally happened and Battle.net is no more. Blizzard have had their crack team of PR people and scientists come up with the brilliant alternative that is "Blizzard App". It may be less confusing for people (although I would really like to see the kinds of people it confused), but we'll still mourn Battle.net and its legacy, starting with Diablo 1 in 1996.

Also, travelers, remember, throwing away a decades long tradition is fine if it avoids confusion!

In less depressing news, after the recent announcement of prices for character service going up, Blizzard have offset that (for a while at least) with a sale on said services and Legion itself. Also, take not at how it's still called the Battle.net shop and Battle.net account in the post. I am SO confused right now.

    It does not matter anyway because nothing changes.
    However I am sure that people will call it Blizzard-App eventually. This happened to many things and products that had a well known name but changed it. (For example Twix used to be called Raider.) People get used to new names quickly.

    The old school players, who have been with Battle.Net since the dawn of time, will still call it "Battle.Net", be certain of it.

    Yeah. i am one of those. I started with Warcraft2. But I know how this sort of change affected me and others in the past.

    I give Battle.Net one year to remain in people's languages. It still quite much considering that streamers and community websites have to present the current official name to at least avoid irritation.

        Another impressive effort by a new competitior in the solo field.
        Well well, it seems there's a new competitor on the "insane solo" scene, as MrNinjaBurger aka Lockoclock (who, shockingly, is a Warlock) has delivered a brand new, extremely impressive solo performance. The kill was pretty tight on the timer, with the insanity mechanic putting a pretty strict limit on the DPS required.
         
        Huge congrats and good luck on your next endeavour Lockoclock!

        After Black Temple and Ulduar, we found a reference in the game files that hints at Siege of Orgrimmar as the next Timewalking raid to be added to the game.
        While nothing has been officially confirmed yet, the latest game files contain an instanced version of Siege of Orgrimmar, which leads us to believe that Blizzard plans to add the raid to the Mists of Pandaria Timewalking Event in Battle for Azeroth.

        After that, all Timewalking events except Cataclysm (thanks to @Zennlar) will have a raid associated with them, leaving Blizzard room to add Warlords of Draenor Timewalking.

        Ah yes, the World of Warcraft South Park episode. It spawned many memes and was a pretty big deal for WoW at the time, bringing it even further into the pop culture mainstream. It seems the episode still echoes in people's minds, as ianxplosion took it upon himself to reenact the boys' plan to level to (the then max) 60 killing only boars. Obviously this has only recently become possible with the old world level scaling changes in 7.3.5, and while he didn't only kill Elwynn Forest boars (even heading to Outland for a short while) he did stay true to the episode's ideals and dinged 60 a few days ago. 6 days played, a month and 19 thousand boars later, here's the clip of the final victory, and a longer section of the stream from the final day:


        Live to win indeed.
        And finally, just in case you aren't familiar with the episode in question, or just haven't watched in a while, here's the inspiration for ianxplosion's quest, and one of the better South Park episodes in general, Make Love, Not Warcraft:
