Leveling retrenchment, sort of

My last post listed some of the top complaints about Patch 8.0.1. There were five, but since then, complaints about two of the topics (full screen mode and personal loot) have taken a back seat to the explosion of irate forum posts about the other three. I think I can confidently say the top three are … Continue reading Leveling retrenchment, sort of

Patchy notes

With any luck, we may finally be past the play-stopping bugs with Patch 8.0.1 and into the exploration phase. Before I get started on my hunter notes, though, a couple of random thoughts. The devs tweeted this out in response to some complaints about the Legion Companion App. I do not often use the app … Continue reading Patchy notes

The real Q&A

Despite my snarkiness in my last post, I thought the Q&A yesterday was relatively informative.

The idea is that there will be a toggle switch in … Continue reading Thoughts on war mode in BfA

Alpha beta soup

The development of Battle for Azeroth has moved into the next phase. Late yesterday Blizz announced the closing of the alpha servers and a new start with beta. Accompanying this announcement was a new round of invites, presumably rather large in scope and permitting many of the actual customer base for the game to try … Continue reading Alpha beta soup

Things that need to be account wide

I have said it before, and my opinion has not changed, Legion is one of the most alt-unfriendly expansions in recent history. I don’t know how it was before Wrath because I did not play alts then, but the last two expansions have seen a steady diminishing of benefits for alts. Coincidentally (?) that is … Continue reading Things that need to be account wide

Q&A – informative for a change

Yesterday I had a lot going on and was not able to watch the Q&A live, so I watched it this morning. I kind of wish I had made some time to watch it yesterday, because for a change there was quite a lot of very good information in it, and if I had had … Continue reading Q&A – informative for a change
