Loot 2.0 is the motivation Diablo 3 was lacking»

When Diablo 3 launched nearly 2 years ago, along with more hype than I have ever seen, it was received with a great mix of reactions; sadly, for some players it just wasn't Diablo enough. I had personally spent many, many hours dungeon diving my way through Diablo 2, even in recent years with the newer patches and high-resolution mods. Sadly, while Diablo 3 had a semi-engaging story, it didn't contain the same replay value of Diablo 2; it didn't have the carrot on the stick that it needed to keep me engaged. Enter the Reaper of Souls pre-patch and Loot 2.0.

It has been a while coming but it's time for The LANBox and its Arma community to go separate ways. Our ideals and aspirations no longer align so it's in the best interest of both sides that we allow each other to pursue our goals in the best way we see fit. So on behalf of the Arma Team here at The LANBox I'd like to announce allFPS, a new purely FPS centered gaming community.

This year at BlizzCon, Blizzard has really fleshed out the details for their upcoming MOBA, Heroes of the Storm; a game originally announced as a Starcraft II custom map called "Blizzard DOTA." Heroes of the Storm has undergone a large swathe of changes and iterations over the years since BlizzCon 2010 right up until the current alpha version that was on show and playable this year. The game itself is looking to be extremely polished for an alpha, and it wouldn't be at all surprising to see a closed beta in the near future. Follow on through to read some of the key points from BlizzCon 2013 and watch some Heroes of the Storm videos.
