BlizzCon is fast approaching, and with under a month left to go, Blizzard has released its full schedule which is jam-packed with action for November 3rd and 4th. Competitive-wise, BlizzCon will once again act as the final stop for all major Blizzard competitions from World of Warcrat to Hearthstone.
The Championship finals, although containing some smaller titles, are always a spectacle on the main stage and act as a nice distraction from possible disappointment with regard to announcements (cough – new WoW expansion – cough). Right after the opening ceremony each major title will see some action on the main stage to get a grip on what’s to come. First off will be World of Warcraft, followed by Hearthstone, Overwatch, World of Wacraft again, and then finally Heroes of the Storm. No Starcraft news this time I’m afraid.
The opening ceremony kicks off at 20:00 on October 28, with most competitive titles beginning at 21:00. Most important, for me, will be the first quarter final for the Overwatch World Cup which begins at 21:15, the same time most competitive titles kick off. Unfortunately for us South African the action only ends with the second Overwatch Semi-final at 06:00 on Saturday morning, so make sure the coffee is flowing. Action on Saturday resumes at 18:00 with Hearthstone, followed by Overwatch which starts at 19:00. In between all the games are a ton of announcements, so you’ll be kept entertained throughout the day.
Blizzard’s competitive events will be a great introduction to what’s come for the following year, especially the Overwatch League which will receive a group draw and schedule after the Overwatch Conteders Cup.
