BATTLE.NET® SOCIAL CELEBRATION CONTEST
A global maintenance is scheduled for later today and all Blizzard services will be unavailable from 22:00-23:00 CEST.
As many players noticed, there’s an extra maintenance time scheduled for 22:00-23:00 CEST tonight, 6 October.
This maintenance is for a global infrastructure upgrade, so we need to carry it out at the same time for all of our services around the world. We chose this time for having the least global impact, but recognize that it is not ideal for European players, especially those in Western time zones.
We’re hopeful that the actual maintenance will be completed in a matter of 15-30 minutes, and while players will likely be unable to log-in during this maintenance, we won’t need to shut down realms. Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee the stability of the game service during this timeframe.
Blizzard is rolling out a range of discounts on some of the biggest games on Battle.net from now through September 6. Shadowlands is 30% off, you can save 25% on Overwatch, and more.

Crash Bandicoot™ 4: It’s About Time – the game that’s been touted as “The Best Crash Yet” by GamesBeat, is celebrating the franchise’s 25 year anniversary in style by coming to PC via Battlet.net. In addition, read on to learn how to score some in-game skins to commemorate 25 years of marsupial mayhem.

5 Tips to Save the Multiverse
For anyone who is coming in brand new to the game, check out these handy tips for a smooth start to your journey.
1. Retro or Modern mode? Take Your Pick. In Retro, players have a limited number of lives. Run out and restart the level. In the Modern setting, you always continue from the last checkpoint. The gameplay difficulty in each mode is the same, so you can switch between settings at any time without losing out on any rewards. Experiment and find what works for you.
2. Leave No Crate Unsmashed. Calling all completionists! Crates might be shoved into every corner and side path along the way. Explore everything and leave no crate unsmashed!
3. Wumpa for Gems. Need a new style? Collect at least 80% of the Wumpa fruit in a stage to secure three of the six available gems in each main path level.
4. Get N. Verted, Get New Digs. The N. Verted levels contain additional gems that you can use to unlock skins. Plus, unlike normal boss levels, defeating a boss in N. Verted mode unlocks a new skin.
5. Get Crazy, Have Fun! The Crash Bandicoot series is all about crazy precision platforming, and it’s no different in Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time. Get playing and discover expansive new worlds, unexpected allies, larger-than-life boss battles, and oh so much more!
25 Years of Crash
Don’t fur-get, this isn’t Crash’s first rodeo. In fact, Crash and Coco have some skeletons in the closet – literally. Celebrate 25 years of N. Sanity with Bare Bones skins for Crash and Coco, free in Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time upon completion of the game’s second level.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is available now on Battle.net for $39.99 SRP. Purchasing the game on Battle.net will also grant players the Totally Tubular Skins, some truly radical digs for Crash and Coco, available upon completion of the game’s second level.
* On PC Battle.net, 4K will be supported based on players’ PC specs; framerate is uncapped, and the game will target 60FPS when playing with recommended specs. Internet connection is required to play on PC.

We have some launcher weirdness arriving today, as the Shadowlands beta has returned, but what could it signify?
We're seeing plenty of reports of players getting the beta back, so it's most likely been enabled for everyone.
Well, there's two possibilities here, one for retail and one for Classic. The client is definitely mislabeled, but it could be the 9.1 PTR which we know is planned to drop "very soon" after 9.0.5 launched, which was this week. However, it could also be the Burning Crusade closed beta, which didn't get any official starting dates, but there has been a leak indicating that it's definitely coming this month, and possibly even next week. In addition to that, we know that BC Classic is being built on the Shadowlands client, and will have the upgraded graphical options, as Blizzard clarified in an interview with MrGM.
Both are equally as likely at this point, so which one do you think it is/would you prefer?
