    Between Friday, Nov 1, 2019 and Saturday, Nov 2, 2019 ('Merikkka time), Activision-Blizzard will be presenting their new offerings, selling e-sports, and trying to damage control recent controversies.
    What do you expect from this year's convention?

    More or less confirmed:
    >Diablo 4 in some form (it was already confirmed for last year's Blizzcon, and was pulled late)
    >World of Warcraft expansion (always have one of those, probably Lich King themed according to leaked models)
    >Warcraft III HD release (to go with the Lich King themed expansions and remind people about the lore there)
    >Diablo Mobile game from yesteryear (made in China, for China)


    Rumored:
    >Diablo 1/2 remakes (possibly for phones, which you guys surely have)
    >Overwatch 2 (work title, could just be a singleplayer component for Overwatch, or could be a new game to reset lootboxes on whales)
    >Hearthstone expansion (they already said there will be 3 this year, maybe show the third)


    Unlikely:
    >StarCraft stuff (its dead, Jim)
    >Non-Blizzard stuff on state (Destiny is out, and Call of Duty would be too cynical for this bitter crowd)
    >new IP (after we know for a fact they cancelled a Diablo Dark Souls game, and a StarCraft shooter, they couldn't have the manpower to work on yet another game in parallel)

    People yelling "Free Hong Kong" during a presentation and the security trying to remove them from the room while people on the stage look awkwardly at the whole scene and that chink developer from last year saying"what don't you people have communism and social scores?

    Diablo 2 Remaster for the 20th anniversary next year is a no-brainer.

    I am not even sure I want to play Diablo 4, considering how Diablo 3 turned out. And now we have Path of Exile and Grim Dawn, which I like more (they have their own problems though).

    Diablo 4 is going to be an open-world first-person action RPG with a focus on loot, like a mix of Skyrim and Borderlands. You've heard it here first!

    Not forgetting the Battle net store 2.0 with microtransactions and a whole lot of grinding to strong arm you into wasting your money, what not to like?

    During the Q&A panel someone should give them a Pooh mascot and ask them to set it on the table.

    Hope so. I think Starcraft remaster turned out :5/5: while Warcraft remaster turned out :3/5:

    There has been some talk about D2 being hard to recreate cause of missing assets, but I think that's all massive bull. The assets are all inside game files. The folk at Phrozen Keep are amazing and should act as consultants to Blizzard regarding the remaster.

    Its hard to recreate, because of Satanic assets. Hard to release that today, for a global company. If you haven't played D2 recently, revisit it, and think how all of it would look in a more photo-realistic aesthetic, and with mode detail and HD. And think how well the marketing screenshots would go down in the press and with popular opinion from non-gamers. Or in that country, in the east.

    And what exactly are they supposed to do with those low res sprites? They were probably talking about the original models from which those sprites were rendered.

    The same thing SCR and HoMM HD did with theirs. Polish, sharpen, repaint, w/e.

    I wasn't very keen on D3 on release on PC but a year or so I got it cheap on console and it's actually a fun game to couch co-op now and works kind of well with controllers.

    That would be an improvement over what Diablo is now, which is basically a high production value cookie clicker.

    How much will you bet that the Diablo 2 remaster will be $60?

    Never forget the so called Heroes III HD Edition is empirically inferior in quality to the original game and ubisoft additionally used map sprites as comparisons against combat sprites to dishonestly support their claim that their pile of shit HD edition was necessary.
    Also it was missing campaigns LMAO HOLY SHIT HOW DO YOU FUCK UP THAT BADLY
