Co-op Commander: Stetmann

about 14 hours ago - Blizzard Entertainment on News - Thread - Direct

Commander Intro

As a starting point for the next Commander, the design team was determined to leverage the awesome fan-favorite Mecha Zerg skins. After a bit of deliberation on which character could possibly command the Mecha Swarm, we settled on the Hyperion’s former chief science advisor, Egon Stetmann, a character the Co-op team already has a very special relationship with. More specifically, we homed in on his maniacal and slightly paranoid Mist Opportunities persona. Creatively, we knew that Stetmann was relatively unexplored, which meant that we had a lot of freedom in terms of gameplay, lore, and character development.

This new Co-op Commander version of Stetmann explores his life after Mist Opportunities, when he spent years as a castaway marooned on a foreign planet, struggling to survive. Quite a while has passed since we last saw him, and not only has Stetmann survived—he’s thrived, having built both an army to defend his beloved Bel’Shir, ...

Caster Call to Action

about 18 hours ago - Blizzard Entertainment on News - Thread - Direct

The 2019 WCS Challenger Season 2 Open Qualifiers are almost here, and we are now taking applications for Community Casters looking to cover the event.

We have received an incredibly positive response to our Community Casting calls in 2019, with more applications and interest than ever before. We love seeing this level of passion from StarCraft fans, and we are glad the Community Caster program has helped provide opportunities for new and aspiring casters to try their hand covering official WCS events.

However, we have taken into account the feedback provided after the first 2019 Open Qualifiers for WCS Challenger, from both admins and participating players. Our number-one priority is ensuring the tournament runs smoothly, therefore providing the best possible experience for players and viewers. As a result, we may be scaling back the number of applications we accept for this event.

Season 1 is approaching its end, which means Season 2 is just around the corner! In Season 2, we are introducing several new maps and map features (Rich Vespene Geysers, Inhibitor Zone Generators, and Reduced Mineral Fields.) Due to the experimental nature of these new map features, we will be introducing three new maps instead of four to the 1v1 map pool in the upcoming season. This should help players more easily get acquainted with all the new items coming in next season.

Once the new season commences on May 21, PDT, Port Aleksander LE, Automaton LE, and Year Zero LE will be removed from the 1v1 ladder. Furthermore, Ulzaan, Black Site 2E, and Last Impact will also be removed from the Team ladder. In their place, we’re adding the following new maps to the 1v1 ladder, as well as a new selection of Team maps.
