Blizzard All-stars is the developer’s own attempt to usurp Dota 2 and League of Legends; games built upon the success of the original Warcraft 3 Dota mod. Originally named Blizzard DOTA, its name was changed after a legal dispute with Valve over the Dota trademark.
While Valve may now hold the Dota trademark, Blizzard can still lay claim to being the inspiration for the Dota legacy, which stretches back through Warcraft 3 to the original StarCraft and a custom map known as Aeon of Strife. Here’s what we know about their game so far.
Sam Raimi is no longer working on the World of Warcraft movie, according to a report on CraveOnline. Speaking the director at ComicCon, Raimi said that “Actually, they don’t have me directing World of Warcraft anymore because when I took the Oz job, they had to move on to another director. They had to start making it."
I was two years too late with Pokemon. I didn’t have a Gameboy at the time, and it was two years of pleading before my parents finally acquiesced and got me one. But by then it was too late. All my friends already had MewToo, and they just didn’t care when my Squirtle turned into a Blastoid. I was despondent. You can avoid a similar fate, because WoW’s pet battles are now live on the Private Test Realm, which means they’re going to be headed to the actual servers imminently.
