It's time to watch the BlizzConline 2021 opening ceremony together


Love a good Friday afternoon stream with the Destructoid fam

The cat might be out of the bag with multiple leaked announcements, including Burning Crusade Classic, but there are still surprises in store for BlizzConline 2021, the streaming-only stand-in for BlizzCon. The two-day digital event starts February 19 (that’s today!) with an opening ceremony at 2:00 pm Pacific.

After the main event, which is expected to last an hour, BlizzConline will split off into several streaming channels – WoW, Hearthstone, Diablo, Overwatch, and StarCraft – all of which are free to watch. With that in mind, it’s worth perusing the schedule, especially on day one, to see what’s happening where.

(I included the main Blizzard channel above; you can flip between the other channels over here.)

I’m pretty much just looking forward to seeing the Diablo II remaster’s new graphics. Anything else – say, a meaningful update on the state of Overwatch 2 that gives me more confidence – is a bonus.

Come hang out in the comments if you’re free for a bit. I saved you a seat right next to Chris.
