Enthusiast Gaming Acquires Icy Veins

Recommended Posts

Maybe bringing a Diablo 2 Section. Back then, when LoD was released i loved it to look up guides, runewords, all uniques etc. Some Section with a database or something like POE Vault, just for all Diablo games. Maybe theres a chance for some other MMOs as well, upcoming MMos like New World or Ashes (if it will be ever released *lol*)

Understandable, so will the Borderlands and Overwatch categories be removed? Since they've been abandoned for so long, it looks like there is no need to keep them around.

We'll remove them from the menu when we make room for Diablo Immortal and Diablo 2 🙂

Not sure if on a related note, but could you separate somehow posts (more precise spoilers) from PTR WoW from regular posts? Hard to follow and somehow skip the "less wanted" info from you, on Facebook at least.

@Stan @Starym Any suggestions there?

We will have a Diablo 2 section, that's already in the works 🙂

It means that soon half of Icy Veins will be Diablo! More like Hellfire Veins!

Other than clearly marking them as spoilers (which we do for the lore/story stuff) I'm not sure what can be done on Facebook specifically, as there's no filter really available. Did you mean the actual "technical" posts as well (like Soul Ash or item level numbers and stuff like that)? If we let something slip through regarding the story without properly adding spoiler warnings that's just a mistake on our (news writers) end. The other thing with facebook is that basically it decides which of our posts to show you and when, it's not a direct feed like twitter.

They have websites with journalists that include political propaganda in their articles, and then they promote and link to those articles in their Wowhead mainpage news feed. Then they immediately remove comments and warn/ban users for having dissenting opinions.  

Here is such a post still up on the wowhead news feed:

https://www.wowhead.com/news/fanbyte-weekly-news-picks-mortal-kombat-movie-nintendo-direct-apple-subpoenas-321098

And here is article link from that page:

https://www.fanbyte.com/news/heres-everything-you-missed-from-todays-nintendo-direct/

If you want to post junk like that, whatever. But don't then silence your users when they want to comment back about it. 

Gotcha... TBH I can see why they would shut down a political discussion on a gaming site that had links to like 10 articles, one of which was a huge list of gaming stuff but had one tiny not-very-hot political take, it's kind of really digging for relevance.  

But not exactly my definition of "super corrupt" or "agenda driven"....

so this explains the new look of IV (header missing, all the games of blizzard broken up into their own neat little boxes?)  Sorry, but I like the way it was before.

I could see your point if it wasn't a link to an article on their own website written by their own employee, and then their own moderators shut down discussion on something THEY wrote and linked to. If they shut down discussion on that, how many other times have they done something  like it? Only they could tell you. Once was enough for me.

I have switched to Icy Veins as my wow news source and place to chat on the forums freely and fairly and so far I am very happy with my choice.

We haven't changed our design in quite a long time, and certainly not since the acquisition. I'm not exactly sure what you're referring to either... do you mean this?

Perhaps he means the mobile version of IV, where it moved to the top right corner (But he might not have seen that).

Hi Vlad and no.  What I was seeing had no header, that was the concern. I could only go to other parts of the forum, nothing else.  Possible some type of maintenance was going on? Or as Yridda said, somehow I wound up on a mobile version (I don't have a cell phone) while on the computer?  I need to add that I came to IV that day from a message sent to my gmail account on new updates.

There was some maintenance a few days back, maybe you caught us right in the middle of that and that's what contributed to the weird display issue.

I meant the posts like the new raid (with its end boss) and the new megadungeon. I know most of them promote loot/mechanics, but you give away a bit of lore when you reveal who you'll be facing (and potentially killing).

Hm, interesting. Generally, we don't consider things that Blizz announce during BlizzCon and other official means as spoilers, but I do see your point (I'm very spoiler-averse myself - unfortunately not for WoW since that would be impossible).

Actually, I am glad to see spoilers, etc, and am not spoiler-adversed.  Blizzard has changed the lore so many times from x-pac to x-pac, books, and even in the middle of the current game, it has become highly confusing.  I find when I do see the story line, it is much easier to figure out things.  Honestly, keep it up IV.  Besides, talking about things, this keeps the game interesting and I would bet I am not the only one out here.   😉

I completely missed this post, so I'm a bit late, but congrats. Hope IV manages to remain neutral and honest in reporting and informing; I don't know Enthusiast gaming but for you guys I'll give them the benefit of the doubt 🙂

      Diablo 2: Resurrected has arrived today and joined the Icy Veins family of guides, so we're celebrating the re-release of one of the best games of all time with a discount on our Premium subscription until October! We are lowering our Uncommon tier Premium prices by over 40% if you select the yearly option, dropping it from 1.7$/€  to under 0.99$/€ per month! 
      With the Premium subscription you can support the site, our guide and news writers, get an ad-free experience, a fancy forum badge, access to our Masterclass feature and the patron discord channel and more! Head on over here or click the image below for the Premium subscription page.

    • By Staff
      When we first launched our Premium subscription, we received many requests for a way to get Log and Character Reviews, where an expert writer could provide an analysis of your specific gameplay and give personalized feedback to help you become a better WoW and Diablo player. We'd been working through how we could build such a system to provide this for our Premium supporters. Today, we’d like to announce our World of Warcraft PvE Log Review and Diablo 3 Character Review System!
      A few weeks ago, we launched the Icy Veins Masterclass as a thank you to all of our Premium supporters. Today, we are offering Epic and Legendary rank subscribers access to our World of Warcraft PvE Log and Diablo 3 Character Review Service, the rules of which we outline here.
      You may be wondering, why Epic and Legendary subscribers only? The reason is very simple!
      We want to ensure that we provide as high a quality of personalized content as possible. Therefore, we have asked our PvE spec guide and Diablo authors to personally review these requests.
      Of course, this means that we have limited spots available each month, so we have reserved Log Reviews for now to our Epic and Legendary tier subscribers, with an initial allotment of one Log Review per month. We would try this out for now, and if necessary to protect our writers’ time, we may implement a queuing system.
      And that’s it for now! We’re going to try this out for September and see how things go. Please, continue to share any feedback or suggestions you may have or other ideas on how we can improve the Premium experience! Thank you!

      As a thank you to all of our Premium supporters, we're proud to introduce the Icy Veins Masterclass, a Premium member-only video series by Azortharion that will help you become a better player.
      Our Raidbots Masterclass takes you through one of the most important tools outside of the game to help you get better. Raidbots is the tool used by thousands of people, including top raiders, to simulate their gear, talents, covenants, and more and find out the best way to set up their character. This is not only a lot more accurate than using addons or stat weights, but also a lot easier once you know how to do it.
      Of course, if you are not a Premium member, you can always access our Raidbots guide for free here.
      It is comprised of nine episodes. Six episodes are currently available to Premium members. The remaining three episodes will release shortly.
      Here is a list of Masterclass episodes:
      Introduction / How To Set Up Raidbots Importing Your Character How To Use Raidbots Top Gear How To Use the Raidbots Droptimizer How To Use Raidbots Gear Compare How To Use Raidbots Advanced Getting Started With WarcraftLogs (coming soon) Understanding WarcraftLogs Reports (coming soon) Improving Yourself With WarcraftLogs (coming soon) Premium members, would you like to see more Masterclass videos? What topics should we cover next? Let us know what you think in the comments below or on social media!
      Frequently Asked Questions
      Why did you guys decide to make a Masterclass? 
      As you may know, we’ve always had a Raidbots written guide up on Icy Veins for many years, but we’d thought of investing in some video content to help bring some better clarity for those learners who might find the visual aspect of video useful, as opposed to reading written text. 
      Can’t we find this information for free on Youtube?
      Yes, that’s possible. However, as a Premium member, you can not only see the videos but also access our Premium Discord channel where you can interact with our staff and writers to ask questions and clarify points of confusion (if there are any). We believe this dialogue could come in useful for a player who’s looking to improve and get to the next level, advised by some of the top-tier WoW players here at Icy Veins.
      What's Next?
      We're open to suggestions! This is our first video series and we have our own ideas of topics to cover, but would love to get your feedback on topics, whether the videos should be longer or shorter, or anything else that you might have in mind.
