WoW Streamer Detained by Police, On Camera

When someone gets detained by the police then you know the prank has gone too far. During what was a typical live stream someone decided it would be funny to call the police and tell them that the popular streamer Swifty had “threatened someone with a knife”. Subsequently the police showed up on his doorstep and took him in to fill out paperwork, and it’s unclear as to whether he was actually placed under arrest or not.

The good news is that this most likely easily cleared up as his actions that night were, you know, recorded in front of thousands of witnesses. Apparently this is the second time this streamer has been arrested as a result of a false accusation during a live stream. It’s also unclear as to what action he can take against the individual for the false accusation.

How much would you pay for a Diablo 3 expansion?

According to Polygon, Blizzard has begun polling players about the cost of the expansion as well as various feature sets.

“Consider two versions of the expansion: a Standard Edition for $29.99 and a Collector’s Edition for $49.99. The Standard Edition includes the Reaper of Souls expansion; the Collector’s Edition includes the expansion, exclusive in-game content, and other bonus items.”

It would appear as though Blizzard is taking the breadth of criticism to heart about Diablo 3 and attempting to make a ‘player’s Diablo’, including getting rid of the Auction Houses.

Blizzcon now has a Hearthstone Invitational


I guess people now have even more of a reason to watch Blizzcon, the inevitable Hearthstone tournament. It’s really a crying shame that Dills isn’t on this list, but there is a total of eight players among two brackets competing for the top spot.

Each player must bring three decks with three different classes and they will battle each other in a set of best-of-five matches. If one of their chosen decks loses, it’s out for good!


Given that this is the first official tournament I’d imagine that there be issues to be hammered out, but it’ll be really interesting to watch.
