my guess is that there are some people on a moon or something developing and researching something to do with maybe the xelnaga artifact(s)? or some like xelnaga or another name for it since it's "blackstone."
possibly a new race or development of some kind or the introduction of something new that comes from the basis of a ""black stone(s)""

Interesting theory. I never thought of it like that, but so far, it just seems to be research on Zerg at this point in time. From what I gather, the first thing they're trying to do is to adapt Zerg regeneration as a drug (or whatever) for Dominion soldiers to use in the frontlines.

I doubt new race, but it's a research on something. It's too early to jump judgement, but most of it is based on Zerg research. Who knows what Blizz has in mind.

It wouldn't be a nice race, a new race would mess up SC2 to much.

Blackstone is just a code name, like Phoenix or other random code names so that people don't suspect anything.

In the starcraft universe such research would be very hush hush, clearly normal people wouldn't like or possibly support the 'ethics' behind what they are doing.

I think this is the start to the hybrid research, remember in the story for WoL the hybrids and what made them are being experimented on and we don't know if it's the Xel'naga or what.

This could be the beginning of the dominion working on the Zerg side of it and then when the Protoss expansion comes out later they could do the same kind of thing on the protoss hence creating Hybrids.

All just a guess, it's all for more story and hype after all, but hey it is fun to speculate.

Try reloading it.

Obviously that's the first thing I tried.

It worked in Firefox, not Chrome...Nor Waterfox(which is basically firefox with 64 bit).

Works fine in chrome for me on 3 computers, never had such an issue.

Running any addons that could be blocking it? I run adblock but it still loads fine on all my pcs.

Another update, seems like some sexism going on(kinda). and they are very hard at work trying to work out zerg mutations. I believe it was a call back to the short story pre WoL launch about the person watching zerglings evolve in the field.

Very cool that they linked it toegther.

Anyone else notice that the short stories they are releasing have something to do with blackstone? A few weeks ago, just after project blackstone was released, there was a short story on zerg larvae and a member of project blackstone attempting to buy some.

Now, this post had something to do with hydralisks and a doctor trying to get inside someones head...

Coincidence?

Coincidences don't happen with blizz, very well planned out. Nice catch btw it didn't click in my head.

Yes, and the conversation refers to the latest short story "Frenzy".
