Beginning at WoW Insider and now living at Blizzard Watch, this team of content creators has been together for over 10-years and is still going strong. Now, we're covering more than just World of Warcraft: we write about all Blizzard games, including Overwatch, Diablo, Hearthstone, and Heroes of the Storm. Sometimes we even let Rossi write about dinosaurs.

To keep the community and team together we need your support!
                                   

We're not just another gaming blog

In 2005 AOL started WoW Insider as an experiment, and the site flourished for a decade. But in 2015, they said no one wanted to read about games and closed us down. You, our community, said no.Your support let us start Blizzard Watch. We're not just another gaming blog, we're a bunch of individuals with well over a decade of experience in covering World of Warcraft and other games.

We speak our minds

As an independent site, we aren't controlled by a corporation. We aren't sponsored by Blizzard Entertainment and we have no billionaires (or even millionaires) giving us money. What we have is you. The community's support lets us to be independent, and say what what we think rather than what the latest press release says. 

We celebrate our diversity

A world where everyone was a carbon copy of everyone else would be boring. We believe that our differences make us stronger (and certainly a lot more interesting). We celebrate our diversity, creating a safe space for our writers and our community to talk about what matters to them. We're all here to enjoy hanging out with other gamers, and we don't tolerate trolls or toxicity.

We have one of the best communities online

Blizzard Watch has always been more than us talking to you: it's about the community we've created together. The vibrant community means that nothing is ever a one-sided conversation, whether that means long threads of inside jokes in The Queue, tinfoil hat lore discussions on Twitter, or even swapping our favorite recipes in Discord. The community has grown over the past decade into something really special, and we're proud to be a part of it.

Your support keeps us going

Your support lets us keep the lights (figuratively). All funds from Patreon go directly towards keeping the site online: your support lets us pay content creators, keep the servers running, cover BlizzCon, and deal with other costs involved in running a small business. 90% of our revenue comes from Patreon, so we literally couldn't do this without you. 

Thank you!
