Disorganized

Starting the second week of Battle for Azeroth, I am still feeling a bit overwhelmed. I am trying to develop a routine, so that I don’t spend time flailing around trying to figure out what to do for the evening. But I am still so unfamiliar with the new expansion that I spend a ton … Continue reading Disorganized

Blizz’s wall of silence

Last night and this morning I’ve been entertaining myself by reading some of the most popular 8.0-related threads on the forums. Judging solely by numbers of posts, it seems like the patch changes evoking the most emotion are (more or less in order): Communities/Guild interface Removal of full screen mode Personal loot (still) Leveling changes … Continue reading Blizz’s wall of silence

Battle for Azeroth: Legion transmog?

Admin note: I will be taking next week off as a short spring break. I will return to this space on Monday, April 2.

I have made use of boosts for several characters, have even separately purchased at least one. I always thought the benefits of the … Continue reading 110 character boost stinks

New leveling, continued

In Friday’s post, I described my experiences so far with leveling a void elf under the new leveling structure. As nearly all of my weekend play time was spent leveling my new alt, this will be an update on additional observations. Having now played a total of 17 hours in the new system on my … Continue reading New leveling, continued

Q&A, and servers, fail

Yeah, so I watched the latest episode of the Hazzikostas show, and it ranks right up there as one of the crappiest ones Blizz has done. You probably should not waste your time watching it, but if you insist, or just want the text summary, MMO-C has both. Here are the takeaways from my notes: … Continue reading Q&A, and servers, fail
