Activision Blizzard Layoffs, Blazing Ingots and Animacones Quests Hotfix, DLC #765

Activision Blizzard Layoffs
Activision Blizzard has announced the layoffs of about 50 employees working in the Esports division.

  • The layoffs mainly affect employees working on the Overwatch League and Call of Duty League.
  • Employees will receive a three months’ severance package, health benefits for the next 12 months, and a $200 gift card for Blizzard’s Shop.
  • Activision Blizzard’s President of Sports and Entertainment Tony Petitti mentions that the layoffs are a reaction to how the Leagues are operating at the moment. Resources will be reallocated to grow the production of online events, “to best serve the league, owners, teams and fans”.

Blazing Ingots and Animacones Quests Hotfix

Blizzard should fix the spawn rate of the ingots like they did with souls because this is ridiculous.

We’re working on a hotfix for this.

Once the hotfix is live, Blazing Ingots for “Acquisition: Blazing Ingots” and Animacones for “A Dangerous Harvest” will respawn quickly after a player has looted them.

We encountered an unexpected issue with the Southshore vss Tarren Mill brawl, and we’re working on replacing it.

Once the hotfix goes into effect, this week’s brawl will be Arathi Blizzard.

Southshore vss Tarren Mill will return the week of May 11, taking Arathi Blizzard’s place in the rotation.
