BLIZZCON AND PICTURE DUMP
So I was lucky enough to snag tickets to this years Blizzcon in Anaheim this weekend. It was my first convention I've ever been to and I just had my mind completely blown. I has such a great time. I think this was easily one of the best Blizzcons.
There was the announcement of new Blizzard IP: Overwatch. They had a working alpha build which already looks amazing and is tons of fun to play. I'm already lined up for for the beta that should be out early next year. If I do get in, I am planning on streaming it on Twitch.
Then I also got to try out Heroes of the Storm. I really enjoy Dota 2 so Heroes was right up there with it. It is tons of fun to play and I recently got into the Alpha for it so I am starting to try it out.
I watched the World Championship of Starcraft 2 matches where Startale Life took the win from Acer MMA in an incredible set of matches. Unfortunately I missed the exhibition matches where Pros tried out the changes for the upcoming expansion Legacy of the Void which I really really hope is good, because I would love to get back into Starcraft and LotV might just do that.
I was so blown away by all of this that I only took a couple of pictures, mostly of the incredible statues that Blizzard has commissioned over the years. Here are some of my best pictures. Also you guys finally get to see a shitty quality picture of me.
I also snagged a picture of me with Chris Metzen, but unfortunately I won't be uploading it here in order to protect the privacy of others in the picture.
SO WHAT HAPPENED TO DEVIANTART?
This is where I screwed up. I messed up the automatic uploading for the drawings I had lined up for the days I was away. I tried but I could not fix it remotely without sacrificing a lot of time so I had to finally just let it go. I ended up not stressing about it and just take a break from deviantART. And I have to say it helped a lot. I feel so much more refreshed now that I took a break. So what happens now? Instead of mass uploading all the images and spamming everyone's inboxes I decided to upload two images a day and slowly catch back up to where I am supposed to be.
The 300th deviation.
While we are on the topic of screwing up. If anyone noticed, I didn't do a funny or special drawing on October 30th when I uploaded my 300th drawing. Much like I did on the 100th or 200th day. The reason is because of three words: Julian Day Calendar. I rechecked where I was supposed to be with my updating schedule and noticed that there were mistakes, I have two images corresponding to day 173 and two corresponding to day 177. So day 300 was in fact day 303 and even worse, day 200 was actually day 203! Everything is ruined! No, no, I'm just and idiot and I screwed up, so I am gonna go and painstakingly fix all the titles for 150+ images and then and commit myself to an insane asylum. No big deal.
