HearthStoneThe Grand Tournament launches in August with 132 new cards!  Before you check out the preview of new cards, make sure you read this article about the changes to Hero Powers because there are a LOT of ways which Hero Powers can be changed once the expansion drops!!  Of course with all this news, don’t forget about the Darkspear Delight cardback which you need to earn by the end of July!  Then see how the Fireside Gatherings Championship is coming along with a seat at the HearthStone World Championship during BlizzCon this year!

Heroes of the Storm – We got patched this week which FINALLY brought us Leoric so check out his Hero Week feature!  While last week’s Brawl with the Blues was cancelled, but you can check out another Twitch stream which of course features Leoric!  Did you see the results from last week’s North American Open?  Well, get ready for the rest of the schedule in August!!  Before you check out the Weekly Sale with Stitches and Zeratul, take a look at the amazing Sonja cosplay costume that is in the Blizzard Cafe entryway!

StarCraft 2 – Make sure you participate in TeamLiquid’s #WhyILoveSC2 celebration!  Wondering if you should pre-order a Collector’s Edition of the game?  Check out Psione’s response to that Twitter about how Blizzard is trying to let us get the CE AND the prologue missions early too!

World of Warcraft – Did you get to participate in the double honor battleground weekend?!  Well then let Blizzard know what your favorite battlegrounds are!  After that, check out some favorites from the Selfie Scavenger Hunt, the Patch 6.2 Hotfixes, or the extended details about how many WoW Tokens you can buy or own!

Twitter Question of the Week – I have a pretty good question to ask early next week, since I forgot to ask it this week, so I’ll try my best to double up on the questions and maybe we can get one answered finally.  :}
