MMO Week in Review: BlizzCon 2013 roundup

At the end of every week, we round up the best and most popular news stories, exclusive features, and insightful columns published on Massively and then present them all in one convenient place. If you missed a big MMO or WoW Insider story last week, you've come to the right post.

Massively may skew toward ex-World of Warcraft players, but whether you're a hater or a veteran, your gamer eyes were undoubtedly glued to BlizzCon this weekend. Blizzard announced a new expansion for World of Warcraft, complete with time-traveling orcs, housing, and nostalgia for expansions past; we also got our hands on new MOBA Heroes of the Storm and stole a few glances at Hearthstone and Diablo III, with plenty more to come this week as we unpack the con. In the meantime, we've rounded up all the best of Massively's and WoW Insider's BlizzCon coverage for you, so read on!
