  1. Probes. If you've played StarCraft at any point, chances are you've heard the Protoss construction units yammering about how you need more pylons. While that phrase might become irritating, there has always been something endearing about the little golden orbs. Their design feels inviting and they perform a vital function to the gameplay of StarCraft. Now, that function will carry over into the world of Blizzard's MOBA, Heroes of the Storm. Probius, the most heroic of all Protoss probes, might be a bit underwhelming at first glance, but he can pack quite a punch if played right. The hero can construct pylons and photon turrets to protect areas and deal damage while also shooting energy himself. The pylons help Probius regenerate mana for his abilities and provide power for the turrets. The little guy can also create unstable warp rifts that slow enemies and deal damage. His ultimate abilities can either turn pylons into turrets themselves or project a field of negative energy that slows and damages all who enter it. The description of Probius has led some StarCraft fans to the conclusion that Probius isn't just a random probe that Blizzard slapped a name onto and threw into Heroes of the Storm. Part of his background mentions that, "[Probius] may be small, but he made a big difference by warping in a critical pylon during the retaking of Aiur." There's only one key moment that most fans are familiar with that fits that event and it occurs in the intro cinematic for StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void. One probe single-handedly turns the tide of battle to establish a Protoss foothold on their conquered home world.

  3. The motion picture studio Lionsgate will be working with Twitch and MLG to put on a month long tournament February 5-22, culminating in a championship showdown with $10,000 on the line. While this represents the first time a major Hollywood studio has partnered with eSports and streaming organizations, it isn't entirely without motivation. Lionsgate is sponsoring the tournament in an effort to market the Blu-ray release of Ender's Game on February 11th. Ender's Game, both a novel and a film, is about a boy named Ender Wiggin who is sent to a remote space station for special leadership and combat training. The tactical tutelage that Ender endures is roughly analogous to the strategies professional StarCraft II players display on their own sci-fi battlefields. “Lionsgate understands that gamers are more than a niche, they are everyone,” said Ben Goldhaber, the director of content marketing at Twitch. “By leveraging Twitch’s community of 45 million gamers, many of whom spend hours playing and watching sci-fi inspired games, creating an eSport event around Ender’s Game on our platform makes perfect sense.” MLG, in partnership with GameOn, will run the Ender’s Game on Blu-ray Tournament. MLG will directly invite 12 players, and fans have the opportunity to vote on the remaining four players. Voting will take place from now until February 5th at http://gameon.gg. In total, over $20,000 in prizes are being awarded to skilled players. What kind of play can we expect out of this tournament? Check out one of the games from MLG's 2013 Grand Finals.

  7. Yesterday, Blizzard implemented a new feature to StarCraft II called “Spawning.” Essentially, spawning allows players who have purchased the latest version of StarCraft II to invite friends to their game who have an older version, or free version, and spawn them in, upgrading their content to the latest version for the duration of their gameplay session. This means that if a Heart of the Swarm player invites a Wings of Liberty player to their party, the Wings of Liberty player is instantly upgraded to be able to access Heart of the Swarm content. The same applies to players with free Starter Edition accounts who are invited to a Wings of Liberty or Heart of the Swarm party. What content is unlocked for spawned players: - All vs A.I. modes, including team games - Ranked and unranked team games - All custom game maps - Access to the arcade (user-generated mods) Spawned players cannot access certain content: - Single-player campaign - Certain social features, like clans and groups - Can only play as a pre-selected race in multiplayer (currently Terran) This is a great day if you have friends that own StarCraft II. Party sizes are capped at fifteen players, meaning that one game owner could invite up to fourteen people who own the Starter Edition and give them access to those higher features from Wings of Liberty or Heart of the Swarm. Also, if you own Heart of the Swarm, playing with friends earns you a 25% experience bonus, so this is a perfect opportunity to play with friends who have never been able to fully check out Heart of the Swarm or Wings of Liberty. For more information on Spawning, you can watch this handy video. For more information on the Starter Edition, you can watch this other handy video. To download the Starter Edition and start mooching off your friends, click this link.
