It looks like it's time to close up shop. Maybe it has been for a while. Just hard to let it go.
I always said I would keep it open until people stopped using it. I've reached my 10 year personal goal and no one's here anymore, or at least no ones talking either way.
I would like to thank you guys for 10 years of good memories. For putting up with my complete lack of knowing how to run a site like this, while I learned as I went. For you help modding posts and tracking down hackers. For your donations. For your participation. For just being there to talk to.
Thank you Admins, Modders, Staffers, news guys, Clan [gm], EH Clan, TheWarCenter Neo Horde/Alliance, ShadowFury, Mafia Leaders/Players, Ogamers, DOTA guys, EUL, MutantMonkey for making it all happen, and all you members.
Thank you for bringing DOTA here and for helping me keep this place alive when I didn't have time to post the news or mod the forums or the money to pay the bill. Thank you for the banners, wallpapers, pics, icons, stories, Blizzard SC2 requirements, and all other content you provided.
I wish I would have had the know how and means to provide you guys some great content. I guess programming knowledge and elementary art skills weren't enough.
I would like to thank Blizzard for all the beta keys, Blizzcon trips, swag, and whatnot. Thanks for the great and fun games and giving us a reason to get together and talk.
If anyone wants to add me to thier messenger or Facebook or something, shoot me a pm and we'll work it out.
I think everything's paid up until the end of May/early June so everyone should have time to say their goodbyes if you would like.
I know. Long goodbye thread. I'm such a hypocrite.
Today Blizzard announced a new electronic collectible card game at PAX East based on Warcraft, called Hearthstone.
Having played Magic a little myself back in the day, I can say it looks pretty neat for a card game. All the little sounds and animations are pretty cool.
I did completely enjoy all the QQ on the stream comments from people wanting something more. Honestly I think it's a step up from the strictly mobile game that I was expecting. Well, with ipad it's still mobile, but you get the point.
Release set for this year on PC and the ipad. Beta will be in the summer. It will be FTP.
You can sign up for the beta and check it out here.
