Is quantity content?

Last night as we were cranking out our weekly H Nighthold farm run, there was a semi-lively discussion of Legion -- mainly Patch 7.2 but also Legion in general. No great insights, but the comments did start a few chains of thought for me, focused on the whole idea of "content" that is Blizz's main … Continue reading Is quantity content?

Not impressed with 7.2

We have had a little over a week with 7.2 and I am extremely underwhelmed with it.

Now, of course, Patch 7.2 is still undergoing a lot of changes, and the initial info on these legendaries could change a lot between now and live, but let me … Continue reading Doubling down on bad ideas
