What is Battle.net and why you should use it




If you are a fan of Blizzard or Activision games, you have probably heard of Battle.net. But what exactly is it and what can it do for you? In this article, we will explain what Battle.net is, how it works, and why you should use it.


Battle.net: A brief history




Battle.net is the online gaming service and platform created by Blizzard Entertainment, the company behind popular games such as World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Diablo, StarCraft, and Hearthstone. It was launched in 1996 as a chat service that allowed players to communicate with each other while playing Diablo online. Since then, it has evolved into a full-fledged gaming platform that supports all Blizzard and Activision games, as well as some partner games such as Call of Duty and Crash Bandicoot.

How Battle.net evolved from a chat service to a gaming platform




The first version of Battle.net was a simple chat service that connected players through Blizzard's servers. It allowed players to create chat rooms, send messages, and join games. However, it had some limitations, such as the lack of security, moderation, and customization. To address these issues, Blizzard released Battle.net 2.0 in 2009, which introduced features such as encrypted connections, parental controls, achievements, profiles, and matchmaking. In 2017, Blizzard rebranded Battle.net as Blizzard App, but later reverted back to the original name due to popular demand. In 2020, Blizzard integrated Activision games into Battle.net, expanding its library and user base.
