Warcraft Wednesday: Crucible Of Storms & Xal’atath Quest line!

Greetings and welcome to the Warcraft Wednesday post!

Shadow Priest now has access to the Xal’atath quest line. It is one full week before the Crucible of Strom’s raid drop and I am super excited to get started with it. However I am going to hold off until next week to get going with it because I want to do it just before I head in with my team.

I am excited for it, I just have a very busy week with work and other things that I have on my to do list.

What are you looking forward to with the upcoming raid?

Warcraft Wednesday: Support The Game’s You Love!

I have unofficially played World Of Warcraft for twelve years, officially since two months before the drop of Cataclysm. Over these years, access to news, rumors, and a plethora of other stories have boomed due to the rise of social media.

In 2012, Blizzard released six hundred of its employees [Source]. Activation-Blizzard released eight hundred of their employees. Their reason’s are the release of a lot of their esports devision was not as conducive as a business model as they would have liked. Energies, money, man power would need to go elsewhere. I understand completely. As a business, cutting down on projects that are not earning a company money or costing them more to produce then of course moving on is the best.

I just do not understand why sign on and larger bonus’s for anyone in the company is a thing. Let me tell you the operative word in the previous sentence, ANYONE. I know that sounds harsh for the average working person to hear that their is no room to gather bonus’s; however, if the business really wants to save money, this is one major way to do so. I am not saying some of the bonus monies are not well deserved but to keep your head above water and ‘restructure’, keeping a bonus for employees does not make the slightest bit of common sense.

I know I have a business mind, and it is pretty much cut and dry for me when it comes to ventures like that; however, I also do care about the games that Blizzard has released over the years. Some more then others of course. I also know by being concerned for people who may or may not have lost their job recently. I know it sucks. No matter the way you spin it. I also know by being salty and tossing around the thought that players will not support the game due to all of the recent negative attention.

I get your pissed off; however, if you are enjoying the game, then why quit? Now for those of you that are not having a good time with the game’s Blizzard has to offer, at all, then I get it. Why pay for something that you don’t like or even play as much anymore.

What I am saying is if you like Hearthstone, Diablo, Starcraft, Hero’s Of The Storm, and Warcraft even with their flaw’s then why not help Blizzard out by giving constructive criticism? We all know nothing will ever be perfect. I also want to support the good people that also love these games too. By giving them space, helping them grow, and being better people and being a good member of whatever game and gaming community I just so happen to be a member of.

I also want to point out that I had read an article that is an interesting read and found it informative, even with the salt. Read it here: https://www.fanbyte.com/trending/kiss-my-ass-activision-blizzard/

Also, Az had some great points as well! You can watch his video below:

Warcraft Wednesday: How To Be Unpopular in the Warcraft World!

Greetings fellow gamers. In this Warcraft Wednesday post we are going to talk about toxicity within the game we love. Just as a note for the readers, I am not painting the entire player base like this. I also know a bunch of players that are absolutely fantastic. This post is also generalizing a lot of situations or things that I have seen happen within the game. Hopefully you do not have to deal with this type of thing within Warcraft.

So, lets start with Trade Chat. Trade Chat at times can be filled with name calling, political talk that turns ugly, or some random conversation that turned bad. I honestly do not mind to have a conversation with someone or a group of people that I happen to disagree with. The only thing I ask for is the conversation be civil. No need to turn to name calling or be nasty with someone who just so happens to have a different opinion. That type of situation is getting old and honestly, most players are of an adult age. We as a whole should know better. I often find myself other not paying attention to chat because of it or putting trade chat in its own window in the UI and not ever clicking on that tab.

The second thing I want to address is instances. Not the mechanic’s or the instance themselves. What I am talking about here is when a tank or a healer or random dps does something wrong or does not have enough healing power to heal through the massive amount of damage, more often then not it turns into a slug fest among the players verbally. For example, one of the ranged DPS randomly pulls another pack and one of the others in the instance says “Hey, healer, you *$#^@ suck. Why did you let me die?” or something along the lines of “Tank, you suck” or whatever. Then the conversation goes no further. It sometimes comes to the tank, random DPS, or healer being kicked. For those of you that do that, it is a shame. Really. Player characters have names you know. At times it can be a complete shit show!

I know there are some players that do not really know how to play their class or they have picked the wrong class for themselves. I absolutely understand that and honestly, it is a valid point. I am not suggesting that a player give up on their toon either. What I am suggesting is for a player to spend the time learning the class they are working on and for the player base to give a player time to learn and be kind and try to use what you have to teach if you know about their class. Not be “that guy” and be rude.

This has been on my mind for a while and thank you for allowing me to spill my guts.

Warcraft Wednesday: Battle Pet Update!

The last time that we had updated the stats on my battle pet collection was on December 5. I want to keep my goal of collecting, and document the journey along the way! You can read the December post here as a reference!

At that time, I had six hundred and ninety two pets total and of those pets collected, one hundred and ninety nine at max level. Of all of the pets collected two pets at poor quality, seventeen at common quality, one hundred and seventy at uncommon quality, and a whopping five hundred and two at the rare quality.

Now, in January, my total pet count went up to seven hundred and nineteen pets, two hundred and 11 of them are at max level. Of those pets, one is at the poor quality bracket, twenty at common quality, one hundred and seventy are still at uncommon quality bracket, with five hundred and twenty three of the pets are at rare quality!

So that that tells you is that of the pets that I have collected, I have other caught them as rare’s or use the pet battle tokens that I have been receiving to upgrade them as soon as I can. By this time next month, other then the obvious, I would like to increase the number count a little further and move the common and poor pets out of that category and have them rare. I still have a bunch of work to do but I am looking forward to it.
