Late Breaking: Janitor Apps open and Blizzard adds ponies to Heroes of the Storm

Earlier tonight, the board that loves pastel colored ponies almost as much as /mlp/; /v/ alerted us to this feature of an upcoming Blizzard Entertainment title "Heroes of the Storm". The game, which is still in Alpha, will feature several different mount skins, including regular horses and traditional unicorns, but most importantly the skins seen above called "PWNIES".
According to the wiki these mounts provide "a 20% speed increase" to your base speed. We're sure that is an entirely coincidental number. The game itself is much akin to Super Smash Bros. as it brings many characters from many different titles together for head-to-head combat. Many people mistakenly believed that this was a mod for World of Warcraft, which it is not (though that would be amazing as then there could be pandas riding ponies).
Heroes represents more than 20 years of Blizzard gaming history, settings, and iconic characters, all mashed up into an epic, off-the-wall team brawler. Fight out classic showdowns such as Tyrael vs. Diablo and Arthas vs. Uther, or settle those late-night debates you’ve had about who’s the stronger leader—Raynor or Thrall? Could Zeratul take down Illidan in a fight? Who’s more badass . . . Kerrigan or the Demon Hunter from Diablo III? The combinations of Blizzard heroes and universes are endless.
And then they decided to ponify it. We're sure this is the most important pony-gaming related news we'll receive this weekend...
Definitely not being released at the end of February.

...surely. And we're also sure that /v/ has finally matured after 3 and a half years of the show and are not easily upset by ponies in video games by now...

...surely. We will follow the progress of this project.

In other news, Janitor Applications for 4chan are now open, and will only be open until midnight tonight, so if you have ever dreamed of cleaning horse stalls being a part of the 4chan /mlp/ custodial community, now is your chance. Don't screw it up.

  1. Great, that there is a possibility to stream the players from around the world. For example, I use a service which also allows me to bet.
