What happens when you pair up a complete StarCraft II multiplayer rookie with a much more seasoned player? Matty and I seek to find out in our first (or third) match of Legacy of the Void's Archon Mode!

Do you have any interest in World of Warcraft, Diablo, StarCraft, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, and/or Overwatch? If you answered yes to any of these, then you really should consider clearing your schedule this weekend. Why? Because BlizzCon 2015 will be taking place of course!
In little over a week, the last piece of the StarCraft II puzzle will be released. Legacy of the Void will bring with it not only an epic single player campaign, but also the traditional Multiplayer experience that many will either love or hate, or love to hate. It'll also include archon mode and co-op missions, the latter of which Blizzard has just detailed thoroughly in a recent blog post.
BlizzCon is just around the corner, and with it comes the World Championships.

On November the 10th, the StarCraft II saga will come to and end with the release of the last part of the trilogy – Legacy of the Void. The final game will bring with it not only what is hopefully an epic single player campaign, but also a somewhat revitalised multiplayer experience. There are new units waiting to be toyed with, and generally, just new ways to get lost in Blizzard’s RTS – one example being the brand new automated tournament feature.
