Warfronts and assaults

Let’s talk a little about some new events coming up next week. Patch 8.1 will see the opening of a new Warfront in Darkshore, along with something called Faction Assaults (which seems to be nothing more than a re-roll of Legion invasions).

Whether by design or stupidity and tone-deafness, Blizz has shown undeniable favoritism to Horde players in this entire … Continue reading Thoughts on the Warfronts debacle

With Pax East concluding a few days ago, we who did not attend are just now getting some of the pertinent WoW-related interviews, and those of us in disfavor with Blizz who do not have a ticket to play the BfA alpha are getting a better look at the next expansion. The interview videos are … Continue reading Battle for Azeroth insights
