Overwatch League: Crafts with Soe

Today, Watchpoint’s Soe Gschwind isn’t here to talk esports, commentate, or host—she’s here to give you a masterclass in pachimari perfection. To make your new friend, you’ll need:

  • Aluminum foil
  • Sculpting clay (Soe recommends a mixture of soft and firm clays to hit that sculpting sweet spot)
  • Access to a sturdy flat surface
  • An oven to bake the clay in
  • Sculpting tools like toothpicks, forks, knitting needles, or a smooth pen.

Download and print out one of Soe’s pachimari stencils and you’ll be ready to sculpt. Follow along as Soe shows you step-by-step how to create your very own pachi-pal!


Diablo: The Voice of Deckard Cain

Stay a while and listen! Voice actor Michael Gough discusses the history of Deckard Cain’s voice, from its beginnings as an “older Sean Connery” to the iconic inflection it went on to become. Watch along as Gough does Deckard impressions, shares how the character and his story have developed and taken on life alongside the progression of the Diablo series, and answers community questions in-character.


World of Warcraft: Making of the Wandering Ancient Mount

Dive into the creation of the first World of Warcraft community-chosen mount, the Wandering Ancient, with the team that nurtured it from seed to your screen. Learn more about the process behind the mount’s creation, from concept art and animation to the grunts and groans and woody creaks that give it life.


StarCraft Legends

Legendary StarCraft players Stork, effort, Last, Rain, NesTea, Mvp, MC, and PartinG face off in a series of epic 2v2, 3v3, and 6 player FFA StarCraft I and StarCraft II battles, all commentated by Tasteless and Artosis.


Hearthstone: Streamer Showdown

Hosted by Chanmanv and featuring streamers Kripparrian and Alliestrasza alongside Hearthstone designers Liv Breeden and Alec Dawson, this game show brings your favorite streamers together in a battle of wits.


Diablo: The Gothic World of Brom

Catch up with the legendary artist Brom, responsible for some of the most iconic works of Diablo art, as he sits down with his son, a member of the Diablo development team, to discuss his artistic upbringing, having a house full of macabre décor, creating haunting artwork, and what goes into Diablo’s devious dungeon design.


Artists at Work: CarBot Animation

Watch along as popular Heroes of the Storm artist CarBot, joined by his brother, Andrew Burton, shows viewers his artistic process as he works on an animated clip.


Where It All Started: Blizzard’s Early Years

Back when Blizzard Entertainment was just a small studio called Silicon & Synapse, they created a handful of games that would go on to shape the future worlds players would come to love. Catch up with some of the people who were there, including Allen Adham, Frank Pearce, Joeyray Hall, Samwise Didier, and more as they reminisce about creating their first games together along with some of their earliest inspirations and challenges.



Watch BlizzConline for free starting February 19! To stay up to date on all things BlizzConline, follow along on BlizzCon.com or on the Battle.net desktop or mobile apps.

      We're 2 hours away from this year's opening ceremony at BlizzCon and the community is already guessing what will be announced today, so we're taking a look at some bingo cards for the event!
      Bingo Card 1
      The first bingo card talks about Thrall, Metzen, and of course "Storm" in the expansion name. Interestingly, it mentions Path of the Titans, a feature that was planned for Cataclysm but ultimately abandoned.

      Bingo Card 2
      The second bingo card includes guesses like Dragonriding everywhere, WoW on game pass, and more.

      Bingo Card 3
      The third bingo card boldly mentions a new expansion for Diablo 4!
