Recommended Posts

Blizzard has updated the Battle.net app today with emoji support, chat history and friends listing.

Below are the latest patch notes of version 1.9.0.9397.

Blizzard LogoBlizzard

Build 9397

Feature Updates

We made some updates to how you sort friends and other settings on your friends list:

  • "Group Favorites" Setting:  Group all favorited friends together rather than being mixed throughout your friends list.
  • "Sort by Activity" Setting: Friends will be grouped together when playing the same game or in Battle.net rather than sorted alphabetically.
  • Showing and Hiding Offline Friends: You now have more control over how offline friends are displayed in your friends list.

We also added chat history to make it easier to keep a conversation going.

  • Closing Battle.net no longer clears chats messages with friends. Messages will now be stored for 28 days.

Last but not least, emoji support is here!

  • Feeling spunky, giddy, cranky, or any other emotion? Try copy and pasting emoji into chat messages!

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that was preventing users from initializing Streaming on beta builds.
  • Fixed a bug that caused games to sort incorrectly.
  • Hearthstone will no longer become unresponsive in certain circumstances when Streaming is enabled.

Wasn't that already a thing since forever ago...?

They're running out of new features to advertise to they add old pre-existing features into their patch notes to make it look like they added more or something?

In the coming months, we're planning an update to Battle.net that will give you more control over your online presence when playing Blizzard games. Soon, World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, and Diablo III players will be able to select "Appear Offline" as one of their Battle.net social-status options (along with Available, Busy, and Away) for those times when they want to wander Azeroth by their lonesome, dominate the galaxy in radio silence, or slay demons in solitude. When you choose this option as your status, all of your Real ID friends, BattleTag friends, and character-level friends will see you as “Offline” in their friends list whenever you’re logged into a game.

The “Appear Offline” status option will be added to World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, and Diablo III separately in future updates for each game. For Diablo III, we expect to add the feature in a patch after 1.0.5. For World of Warcraft and StarCraft II, we expect to add the option sometime after the release of each game’s upcoming expansion.

That post is from 2012.

 

I think we'll see Half-Life 3 before that.

One day, we're going to see them announced on the same day. It'll bring Reddit to its knees.

I thought that post looked familiar. Maybe they will patch it in with the dance studio in WoW and PvP matches in Diablo 3!

Just the thought of PvP in D3 makes me cringe - damage vs. HP numbers :(

      Blizzard is currently investigating an issue affecting their authentication servers, as players around the world are unable to log into Battle.net.

      Blizzard is aware of the issue and they're working on a fix. Follow BlizzCS on Twitter for more updates!

      BlizzCon started off with a gift, as everyone with a Battle.net account is getting the game for free! As long as you register before November 18th you'll be getting the base game to keep forever. There will be more specific information coming soon, so check back here for details.

      Struggling to find the perfect gift for a friend, or just hoping to give them the flexibility to choose their own gifts?
      We’re expanding our gifting service by allowing you to send Blizzard Balance to your friends, offering you the benefits of retail gift cards in a new and easy-to-use digital format.
      Sending Balance gifts is simple: visit the Blizzard Shop, select one of the suggested values—or enter a custom amount, click the “Gift Balance” button, and select a friend.

      Blizzard will deliver your gift along with a notification and personalized message directly to your friend, who can then claim the digital gift card balance onto their account.

      As with other gifts, you’ll receive an email and a notification in the Blizzard App when a friend sends you Blizzard Balance, informing you that the gift has arrived and is ready to be claimed.
      Giving the gift of Blizzard Balance is a fast and easy way to ensure that your friends and family will get the Blizzard product that they want most.
      Happy Gifting!

      While the name is still somewhat weird and long, with the taskbar item being called the "Blizzard Battle.net App", the application itself is definitely getting better and better - with today's update bringing in improvements to groups, chats, and more:

      In October, Blizzard announced their plans to convert from USD to local currency on Blizzard Battle.net in Canada, Japan and New Zealand. All the changes will be live within the next 24 hours.

      In October, we announced that we’ll be converting from USD to local currency on Blizzard Battle.net® in Canada, Japan, and New Zealand. These changes will begin to roll out in these regions within the next 24 hours.
      For players in these regions, Blizzard Balance will be unavailable during the brief update process, but purchases can be made using other payment methods. Any purchases made during this period will be processed in local currency.
      For World of Warcraft® subscribers, the recurring subscription will continue to be charged in USD for the next 12 months. If there’s any interruption to your subscription, however—including an expired card, changes in payment methods, or account cancellations—any new subscriptions will be charged in your local currency.
      We want to make as many of our players as possible feel at home in the Blizzard ecosystem, and make managing your account with us easier. By switching from USD to local currency, we’re expanding the types of payment we accept and helping some of you avoid paying transaction fees charged by financial institutions.
      Please see our announcement in October for more information and follow @BlizzardCS for the latest updates.
