Thoughts from my week off

Last week I divided my WoW time between some concentrated raiding and just doing whatever the hell I felt like doing when I logged in. It was fun. I also pretty much ignored Blizzcon, catching up with the headlines when they hit MMO-C or Wowhead. Today’s post is just some scattered thoughts about all that. … Continue reading Thoughts from my week off

Uldir revisited

Last night our raid team finally broke through the wall we had hit in heroic Uldir — for weeks we have been stuck on Zul, unable to field the “proper” team numbers and/or composition to kill him. So we languished for a long time at 5/8H, but finally last night’s Zul kill plus a relatively … Continue reading Uldir revisited

Friday tin-foil hat time

As we move into Blizzcon 2017, yesterday Activision-Blizzard held its Third Quarter Earnings Call, releasing the made-for investors summary of its performance from July 1 through Sep 30 of this year.

Crazy release theories

Well, it's Monday morning, and we are getting down to the real dregs of any semblance of news from Blizz.

We have sporadic Legion information from the Golden Gamers who have … Continue reading Crazy release theories

Of grammar and tinfoil hats

Before I start this post, I have to share this one with you. Sometimes Blizz makes me break out in gales of laughter. I was reading through the latest blue post on the newest Patch 6.2 build, and came across this: Item - Warlock T18 Destruction 4P Bonus Your Chaos Bolt has a 9% chance to … Continue reading Of grammar and tinfoil hats

My latest tinfoil hat theory

Since I usually write about my experiences in game, and since these days most of those experiences consist of garrison chores, out of boredom (or maybe the haze induced by my allergy meds) I decided to indulge my inner conspiracy theorist today. And anyway, since Blizz refuses to communicate with us in any meaningful way, … Continue reading My latest tinfoil hat theory
