It’s been a hell of a long road for StarCraft. With development kicking off on a sequel to the mega-popular real-time strategy game back in 2003, it wouldn’t be until 2007 when Blizzard would officially announce the title. It’d be another three years before fans got to play the first StarCraft 2 game, Wings Of Liberty. It was then another three years before the Zerg-centric Heart Of The Swarm was released. There’s one more chapter to go however, as Legacy Of The Void focuses on the Protoss. And that game will be going into a closed beta at the end of the month.

One day, humanity will take to the stars. And if cheap science fiction novels and movies have taught me anything, it’s that our future astronauts will be outfitted as astronutbusters, clad in high grade armour that will allow them to murder their way across the galaxy. That’s the kind of future that StarCarft 2 has shown me. And even though I’ll be dead before I can step into power-armour of that calibre, I’m hoping that I’ll be alive long enough to afford a small replica of that kickass gear.

For years now Warcraft fans have been hoping for any word about Warcraft 4 from Blizzard. They’re still painfully stringing us along, but at least now some far more talented individuals than I have recreated Warcarft 3 in a far more modern engine. That’s because the official assets for the game have finally been let loose, letting anyone go wild with mods.

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.
