The Battle.net Desktop App Beta just went live today! It's pretty awesome thus far and will only get better as it moves further into development.
Not too long ago we featured War4Craft as a tech demo/proof of concept; it's recently gone into public beta. The project isn't particularly a Warcraft 3 clone, but more like a Warcraft strategy game with World of Warcraft models. Regardless, it still looks and feels like the old Warcraft RTS games we all know and love, so enjoy your blast from the past!

A brand-new "Spawning" feature has been added to sc2. From now on, every member of a party has the same access to the game as the person with the highest expansion level in the party. In other words, if a starter edition player is in a party with a WoL player, he can access the WoL ladder, custom games, and arcade. The same thing goes for HotS- any WoL player can access the HotS ladder as long as a HotS player is in their party. This means that the HotS-only arcade is now available to WoL players as long as they have a friend with HotS willing to play with them.
As an added bonus, using this feature will unlock a starcrafts in-game portrait.
Here's the official Blizzard post on it.
Let us know what you think here!

In this map you control a gladiator (1-6 players) and fight through a series of boss battles, which require dodging and learning each boss's unique mechanics. When you defeat a boss, you gain new equipment and items to strengthen your gladiator, which saves from game to game so that the more you play, the stronger you get. Feel free to check out Blizzard's interview with Clownz as well!

Infested Arena 3, like its predecessors, places four players in an arena setting whereby their objective is to survive each successive round. At the beginning of the match each player will get the opportunity to choose their Specialist (or Hero). Each Specialist is different and has a unique play style. The more Infested you kill the stronger you can make your specialist. Your Specialist will never die; instead, when your specialist reaches 0 health he goes into an incapacitated state. You must wait in this Incapacitated state for a duration of time before your specialist will get on his feet again. If all current players' Specialists get Incapacitated at the same time then the game will end in defeat.

The latest map to receive an Arcade highlight goes by the name "Warships". It's a 6 player space warfare map, where each player constructs their ships to suit their own play style. This highlight even includes a video, which you can check out below.

Happy Mothers' day to those of you with children! If you're not a mother, make sure to wish her a Happy Mothers' Day, as you would not be here without her! :P.

Gradius, one of our good friends from SCLegacy, has finally released his singleplayer campaign, StarCraft: Subjection. Subjection is a fully voice-acted 8 mission singleplayer campaign for StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty that features four difficulty levels of Brood War style gameplay. Search for the keyword "Subjection" on the North American or European server on Battle.net.
In addition to the above trailer, he's released the full playthrough as a machinima (as it's all voice-acted). If you prefer to just kick back and watch a StarCraft movie, you may do so below!

Congrats to anyone who got BlizzCon tickets in the first batch! If you were unable to get any tickets, there will be a second phase of tickets going on sale on Saturday! Also worth noting, the map pool for the 2013 ladder season 3 will be changing.
SquadCraft is a highly strategic and tactical game. Players will alternate between commanding troops and customizing them (similar to XCom), with plenty of equipment, strategies, and game settings provide tons of replayability.

We want to provide the best solution for those who want to create and host maps.
We operate strictly within Blizzard's Terms of Service.
- User-driven wiki.
- Map versioning, so if you have a series of versions of the same map, it stays the same project at the same URL.
- Per-project wiki (opt-in).
- Per-project forum (opt-in).
- Site forum as well for general discussion.
- Per-project ticketing system (opt-in). This is mostly for very serious projects.
- Repository system. This probably will not be needed, since the maps are likely going to be in binary format. We'll see.
- Team system, to allow you to form your own groups and work on multiple projects together.
