Can't say I'm surprised - that's Blizztard all right.
I won't be missing them though - nothing there for me.

Sums up the 'control freak' mentality of Blizzard the past few weeks. As tight as a crabs arse and that’s water tight!

well, how can you stream hearthstone? or diablo? or overwatch? Beta was fine to get everyone with basic startup items and heroes whatever (it was closed beta for the large part anyway), but out of beta, blizzard can't sell what makes the most money for them, microtransactions.

PS. On the other hand, what about the possible (and eventual) complaints and refunds due to things that are not not blizzard's fault but nVidia's service caused?

There are a lot of things that could just not fit right now for Blizzard with nVidia deal. Am Pretty sure they are not the last ones to pull out.

Then again I don't even care, these streaming services are all going to fail in everything that is not turn based.

I don't use it. I don't care and currently not playing anything Blizzard anyway. Nor do I see anything Blizzard on the horizon for me. Couldn't care less!
