We are now ready for our forums to transition to the new platform! Blizzard games such as Overwatch, World of Warcraft and Warcraft III Reforged have already transitioned over if you’d like to explore what’s to come. New forums allow you to more easily navigate current topics, encourage more constructive discussions, and reward positive contributions to the community.
Here’s a few of the new features we’re excited about:
Tracking and Updates
Sorting and Search
- The Blizz Tracker has returned to help you quickly find official posts.
- You can now easily find threads that you’ve previously viewed.
- Better text formatting.
- Threads now update in real time without needing to refresh.
- Threads now infinitely scroll – no more navigating page by page.
- The forums will also remember what you’ve read and where you left off!
- A new “Advanced Search” feature will make looking for older posts easier.
- You can now sort posts by “Top” or “Latest” with configurable timeframes.
- You can now enable notifications for when you are tagged in posts and replies.
- The “report post” feature has been upgraded to a flagging system with multiple options.

The transition is expected to happen later this month, and please keep in mind that the current forums will be available in a read-only state for a short period of time. As such, be sure to save your favorite conversations elsewhere if you plan to revisit old memories in the future. New posts will automatically be directed to the new platform.
