Blizzard HaHaHas Brood War with hiring post

Post by Revolta » Fri Nov 06, 2015 2:18 am

Blizzard said HaHa to us playing BW still (and WC3 and D2)
http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/company/ca ... id=15000XZ
"Compelling stories. Intense multiplayer. Endless replayability. Qualities that made StarCraft, Warcraft III, and Diablo II the titans of their day. Evolving operating systems, hardware, and online services have made them more difficult to be experienced by their loyal followers or reaching a new generation.

We’re restoring them to glory, and we need your engineering talents, your passion, and your ability to get tough jobs done."
pretty sure they're gonna screw something up but silver lining is that if they dont we get an updated game (in fifty years HaHaHa)

Thoughts?

:huwhaa:

They should have sent it to the people which had left Blizzard back in 2003. The people that are heavily responible for the success of the named titles.

So yeah, I suggest a revival of the "good ol' Bill Roper Crew"...

They probably want to shut down b.ent 0.1 access to the old games and use those old servers for Overwatch.

We still got ICCUP in our possesion, do not forget that. even if they shut them down, i don't think that ICCUP will shutdown yourself (considering that LAN Latency & Anti-Hack they have)


Well, interesting news, indeed. Always wanted to resize SC to Desktop size without lags. Could be very interesting...
Ya know, sometimes i remember old times when Dune 2000 was rocking, when God of War II was the best game, when
starcraft was the best strategy among everything....

I always ask myself: why many people dont play this legendary games, why they want play new ones?
And the answer is: they don't love games bro, they don't love them....

Yeah, there's a lot of third party stuff still active, which they can't/won't do anything about unless they want yet another PR shitstorm.

Dunno Mengsk, for me Battle.Net now for SC is nearly dead, because when i join it.... there's nothing but just you.

While ICCUP is excellent alt server, which players still play 1x1/2x2 with some UMS maps (Popular is poker defence which is my favorite) and very low latency (though it may get to 230, but its normal).

P.S haha nice one. I mean the PR one.
