    I guess I'll post it here too - Diablo 4 art:
    Diablo 4 - all artbook pages

    It's from "The Art of Diablo" book and it's freaking amazing. And yes, the title of this album is not a coincidence - over the last few days, numerous sources have basically confirmed that Diablo 4 will be announced this year :)

    Also, @Archian - this year it's not only the opening ceremony that is free to watch, the first 4 panels on Mythic stage are free too :)

    Guess Bolvar got fat and out of shape sitting on that throne all those years that Sylvanas could single-handed get through all defenses and defeat the couch potato.

    Since a new WoW expansion had to be done.




    Diablo IV's intro seems rather forced too. Maybe it makes sense as you play and the story unveils. Was that Inarius taking her out? Did the tortured angel escape due to the death of all/most evils and come to rescue his beloved? Not quite since Lilith is called by the character as a mother.
    Probably, Inarius will help the players kill Lilith, know the weaknesses.
    Ah frick, it's Rathma, Lilith's actual son and the one the Necromancers worship.

    That's Lilith, as in the Demon which banged with an Angel and created the Nephalem?

    Yes. I hope they will not expect me to read all those comic books and silly books to know who these characters really are and will detail their stories further in Diablo IV.
    The original story, as per usual, was retconned from the Diablo game manuals.

    Rathma is their son, the first nephalem.

    Holy shit! Biggest BlizzCon in years! All the leaks were true! Diablo 4 (HOLY F DUDE, can't wait), WoW: Shadowlands and Overwatch 2.

    I love how J. Allen Brack addressed the hong kong controversy and handled the Diablo Immortal fiasco by announcing Diablo 4 at the start of the opening ceremony.

    Why is Lilith holding Diablo's skull? I mean, is that even existing anymore? Guess Malthael only cared about the rock.

    All in all, I hope it's not a Diablo II reboot.

    Empty words. Just a generic and empty apology necessary to make people behave during their event. They would do the same thing again in a heartbeat. Kind of ironic that he wears a pride pin while saying all this, thus sending a political statement, which by their book is a valid reason to fire people and take away prizes.

    I respect your opinion, but I disagree.

    "We will do better going forward. Then said actions will speak louder than words" - J. Allen Brack

    It's not. It's more of a wink to D2 fans ;)

    Open world. 5 massive areas so big you need mounts. Trading has returned. Runewords has returned. Hundreds of new legendaries. TON of customization. Barbarian new Arsenal system (can equip 4 items) and quickly switch between them in combat.

    As far as I am aware, the fired people are still fired, and the prize winner is still without a prize.

    But yes, time will tell if they really intend to do better. Personally I doubt it, but who knows.

    Hypocritical, actually.
    Still words yet.
    Honestly, the boy broke rules. I think they did a bit too much to him but disqualifying him from the contest would have been proper.
    I don't know about the other two. Maybe they were found, also guilty?

    Incorrect. They changed it to 6 months ban and paid the winner his prize in full. The caster's ban was also changed to 6 months instead.
