StarCraft II Beta
The eighth StarCraft II Beta ZOTAC-Cup tournament saw a clash of two Swedish players in the finals. In the end the Protoss armies of "Bischu" stood no chance against the Zerg swarm of "ZpuX." Both finalists got through an impressive field, as once again 512 players signed up and participated in the tournament. Also, the Electronic Sports League Go4SC2 tournament series continues with the Cup Editions 6 and 7. Here the Swedish former Warcraft III star "Naniwa" defeated "cHoBo" from Poland, earning Naniwa 40 points towards his standing for the overall final. With only two remaining Cups until the final edition, #7 promised to be thrilling. And indeed it was! Nearly 400 players signed up, and in the final the German player "TheLittleOne" triumphed over the Zerg of "Zpux" from Sweden. In other news, the Razer StarCraft II Beta Domination invitational competition is ongoing, featuring 16 top players from Europe. Make sure to follow the group stage of this enthralling competition.

Warcraft III
Orc player June "Lyn" Park from South Korea came out victorious in the Alienware TopGamer tournament, which featured some of the best Warcraft III players in the world. In the final he managed to beat Cheng "Sai" Long Zhou from China by the score of 3-1 and secured the title and the $7,500 first-place prize. Sai walked away with $3,000 for second place, while two other two Chinese stars -- Huang "TH000" Xiang ($1,500) and Xuwen "Infi" Wang ($750) -- finished third and fourth respectively.

World of Warcraft
Ryan "Hydra" van Buiten from Team Dignitas has published his new updated Priest Guide, which includes his talent specs, the gear he recommends and more. Meanwhile, Hydramist sat down with "Partypinglaen", a Holy paladin from the European realm Stormscale, to discuss his team and the healing side of Arena play. Finally, check out the new movie from "Tehseus," Ret paladin from Austria playing on the German realm Destromath, for some incredible Arena action featuring his 2.6k+-rated 2v2 team.

We've recently banned over 320,000 Warcraft III and Diablo II accounts that were found to be violating the Terms of Use. If this is a first offense, the CD key associated with the banned account will be suspended for 30 days, while repeat offenders will see their keys banned permanently. All account ban decisions are final.

We would like all players to remember that abuse of unintended mechanics and/or use of third party programs is a violation of the agreement made when signing on to, and can subject your account to disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban of its access to the service. These types of activities can severely impact the stability of our servers, and we'll continue to aggressively monitor in order to protect the service and its players from the harmful effects of cheating.

Many account closures come as the direct result of tips emailed to our hacks team by legitimate users. If you come across a hack, find a site responsible for distributing hacks, or have a replay of a newly available hack, please report this to our hacks team at or through our Hacks Report Form.

As always, thank you for your continued support, and we'll see you on!
