Blizzard adds Mike Morhaime Homage to Overwatch Map Blizzard World

Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch team added a Mike Morhaime homage to the Blizzard World map in the PTR 1.30.0. The Heroes of the Storm building now has a room with a portrait of Mike Morhaime (artwork style), the walls have a chart of all the 20 years of service and each year shows icons of the games that Mike Morhaime worked on.

 

The ground has plaques with messages taken straight from the ground surrounding the Wolf Rider statue at the Blizzard campus.

 

On the right wall, there are awards of Warcraft: Orcs and Humans, Diablo 1, and StarCraft 1 framed along with the CD and a plaque with the year the game was launched.

 

The left wall shows a frame with the “Congratulations on your new business venture” postcard given to Mike Morhaime by his parents, and a sort of napkin contract between him and his parents borrowing $15,000 to start his venture.

 

When you approach the Mike Morhaime portrait, set the music to 0, and lower the Sound Effects to 42. You can listen clearly recordings of different quotes he said at BlizzCon. Watch the video for the recordings.
