The next Starcraft II chapter arrives in the form of Legacy Of The Void, a sort-of-but-really expansion and standalone game that shines the spotlight on the Protoss and brings the current saga to an end. It’s been under development for years now, and over the weekend at BlizzCon, we got our first look at the game. And sweet Aiur, does it look like a classic trilogy-ender.

BlizzCon is coming this weekend and I'm sure Blizzard has a ton of cool stuff to tell us about. However, it seems that they simply can't contain themselves, hinting at news of StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void.

StarCraft is possibly the only game in existence which can make me stress like a madman. Micro? Macro? APM? You need to know how to manage all of these and more, all at the same time, if you ever want to be any good on a competitive level. There are gods among men players who are capable of such feats, and South Africa is home to some of them. Want to see them in action? Some of our best players will be taking on the best New Zealand has to offer this weekend.

Starcraft II is probably the only game I have ever played that makes me stress a little bit too much. Why you ask? Oh, no reason… I just have to expand my base, make sure my resource income is up to speed, build units, attack the enemy, make sure the enemy doesn’t destroy me, tech up my units, expand some more, restock my army numbers, and… GAH TOO MUCH! There is some serious skill required to be great at the game, resulting in some inevitable cheating. Blizzard have always monitored unusual activity, but they detail exactly how they manage cheating in their latest blog post.

Oh Sweden, you do so many things right. Paid maternity leave for what, a year? And paternity leave. And the government will pay for you to have a day at the spa because, you know, you need to relax. Now, politicians are settling their differences in an eSports match, just in time for elections.

We've seen some impressive prize pools in eSports this year. All in all, it's been a good year to be a pro-athlete in eSports. Usually, the biggest money can be found in the MOBA, but now it looks like better people are looking at Starcraft, and using their weird betting currency.
