Course correction or desperation?

Yesterday we saw one WoW victim of the announced Activision Blizzard layoffs. Ythisen, possibly the most visible and active Community Manager for the game, was given his walking papers. I was not an especially big fan, but I give him a lot of credit for putting himself out there far more than almost any other … Continue reading Course correction or desperation?

Crumbs

Today is one of those days when my brain refuses to focus. Thus, here a couple of thought crumbs that probably need to swept away to tidy things up. Lightning Paw. This spirit beast fox, found in Duskwood, is finally mine as of last night. I have been chasing him, on and off, for a … Continue reading Crumbs

The real Q&A

Despite my snarkiness in my last post, I thought the Q&A yesterday was relatively informative. There was surprisingly quite a lot of what I think of as “real” information as opposed to the kind of blather that is nothing more than an infomercial.

Wrinkle in time

Mandatory techno-babble disclaimer: Recently, for a brief interval, a small wormhole appeared in my writing studio, and I witnessed one dimension’s version of what in this time bubble will be tomorrow’s Q&A with Mr. Game Director Hazzikostas. Unfortunately, the powerful forces of dark matter interwoven with the non-Euclidean spacetime continuum closed before I could write … Continue reading Wrinkle in time

Look at the title - if you don’t want to know, don’t read. Yesterday I spent several hours on the Battle for Azeroth beta with my copied main BM hunter. In general, it was a positive experience (with some reservations). I took my time, but even so it only took me about 8 hours to … Continue reading Battle for Azeroth – more observations

Battle for Azeroth developments

Spoiler Alert: Don’t read this if — oh what the hell, it’s not like I’m giving away the ending to The Sopranos or anything. I don’t know about you, but the news from Blizz on Battle for Azeroth has seemed to me to alternate between fire hose and last-trickle-of-water-from-the-canteen levels. The last day or two … Continue reading Battle for Azeroth developments

I am NOT prepared

In guild talk last night, someone pointed out it is 10 weeks until Battle for Azeroth goes live. I know that sounds like a lot of time, but when I began to mentally list the things I want to get done before then, my brain began to yammer, “Sound General Quarters! AWOOOOGA! AWOOOOGA!” BfA release … Continue reading I am NOT prepared
