Blizzard has announced that a limited multiplayer beta for WarCraft 3: Reforged would begin the week leading up to BlizzCon 2019.

WarCraft 3: Reign of Chaos was released in 2002, with it’s expansion The Frozen Throne being released in 2003.

World of Warcraft came out in 2004 and has since become one of Blizzard’s biggest games, so RTS WarCraft fans had a 15-year wait for Reforged at BlizzCon 2018.

Leading up to Blizzard’s annual convention unit models and other assets from the game have been leaked and previewed.

When does the beta start?

Blizzard announced on October 29 that the Warcraft 3: Reforged Multiplayer beta would begin in select regions the week ahead of BlizzCon 2019, which starts on November 1.

The beta only includes the Human and Orc races for now, with Night Elf and Undead to be added “in the weeks ahead” according to Blizzard. 

Only 1v1 and 2v2 game modes will be available at first for the multiplayer beta, but Blizzard also said more game modes would be added along with more races later on.

Invitations for the beta will be sent out to players who preordered the Spoils of War special edition, with each additional wave of invites going out to more players who have purchased the game.

The Spoils of War edition of WarCraft 3 Reforged includes special bonus items in other Blizzard games like Overwatch, World of Warcraft, Hearthstone and more.

After almost a year of waiting for any sign of a release date, the Reforged multiplayer beta starting is definitely good news for fans.

What else is coming for WarCraft 3: Reforged at BlizzCon?

BlizzCon 2019 promises to be one of the biggest in recent years, and WarCraft 3 fans are looking forward to an exact release date for Reforged.

We could also get a better look at the Night Elf and Undead races, which we’ve seen glimpses of in leaks and previews but nothing compared to the Orcs and Humans.

Even if you didn’t pre-order the Spoils of War edition, now would probably be a good time to start practicing hotkeys and brushing up on your preferred build for Reforged.

Simple GTA Online trick eliminates paying daily bills

Grand Theft Auto Online players have got a simple tactic that allows them to not have to pay their daily bills when they come around. 

Building a criminal empire in GTA Online can be hard work. You’ve got to put the cash together to start buying up businesses, keep enemies off your back, and then start turning those businesses into money-making machines. 

Once you get going, and the businesses run efficiently, money will pile up and you’ll be able to buy pretty much whatever your heart desires. 

However, there are setbacks to owning multiple businesses and properties in Los Santos – and they come in the form of daily bills. If you own a garage, business, or house, you’ll end up paying out a lot on a regular basis, but there is a way to save yourself some cash.

Buidling a criminal empire in GTA Online is easy. Maintaining it is a different story.

How to avoid paying daily bills in GTA Online

It really is simple too, and just revolves around going AFK – even if you’re still sat in front of the screen. 

As Reddit user EGEC1 recommends, if you start up a job and then go AFK while in your apartment, the game will simply tick over and not punish you with bills. Though, you will have to find a way to pin your thumbsticks down, so they’re in a position like they would be when you’re walking normally. 

Plus, you’ll need a job that doesn’t kick you out for being away from a car or enemy. That leaves something like ‘Titan of a job’ as an option to make it work. 

Similarly, you can also use this tactic to build up your nightclub popularity. By heading himself, triggering the dancing, and then leaving your controller AFK, you’ll be able to go up to at least 50%.

Of course, you will need the thumbsticks to be in the right position so that the game doesn’t remove you from any lobbies, because if it does, that’ll be a lot of time wasted.
