Vanilla Warcraft refuses to go away. Why am I not surprised?
You know I said I was done with the Vanilla Server 'issue'? Well, my subconscious has decided I'm not. Last night I dreamt about clearing out history, throwing away broken and old items, and selling things from the past as some kind of retro nod to the present.

From the Personal Blog: I know why you hate me, and that's fine.
I realise I've been quite quiet here, and actually that's due a change now, because I'm in the process not only of updating all the websites, but writing a wish-fulfilment piece that's actually becoming something of a labour of love. Interspersed in all of this is the realisation that I'm ...

Blizzard learn some salutatory lessons about Communication and Drama.
Obviously we've been experiencing significant technical issues. We've been trying to diagnose them, but they're beyond the scope of anything that can be addressed in the short-term (infrastructure/back-end issues, as opposed to just a simple code bug that can be fixed). As such, we're canceling ...

#LegionAlpha :: Class Order Halls, 'Campaign' Quests and NO CUSTOMISATION...
Garrisons are not going away in Legion: they'll remain as Farms did before, testament to the project that was begun back in Pandaria to provide players with limited playtime an activity that can keep them engaged in the client. The retention mechanic is nothing new, but what Garrisons gave a ...

The Third Faction Question that won't go away...
There's been a bit of interest in the possibility that Warcraft could run with a third faction around the Blogsphere of late, even including the suggestion from a Warcraft Dev. Having discussed this back in 2015 (and even beforehand, if truth be told, I just can't be arsed to find the post) I've ...

Legion launches September 21st. Just accept it.
The latest Alpha build is up, people, and quite apart from how ugly the Fishing artefact is and the fact I don't have a clue what Mythic + is (and I'm not sure I actually *want* to know) all I'm really taking from this whole pass, right now, are these two items. Oh, and they've introduced a new ...

Back to Azeroth I go...
Been an interesting couple of days, and I missed Azeroth, so yesterday I went and flew to places that normally give me comfort in difficult times, thinking long and hard about the notion of Community. This game has always been about two kinds of people: those that give and those that take, ...

Nothing to see here, Move along ^^
Last night, as a result of my post yesterday, NO DRAMA HAPPENED. One troll blocked is not drama. A decent, adult and sensible conversation with one person on Twitter is not drama. 1000 people reading my post is not even a surprise. To all of you people out there who like to gossip and sneer, ...

NSFW :: Okay, NOW I'm done on Vanilla servers...
I thought I'd done with the whole Vanilla Servers/Nostalgia thing, but actually I'm not. If you read Twitter using Tweetdeck, you won't see Polls appear unless you click through to the post on the Web platform. That means yesterday, I didn't see the answers associated with the official Warcraft ...

The Loneliness of Long Distance Alt Levelling.
Yesterday, I played as a newbie, and it was (as it happens) quite tolerable. I did my first Dungeon (see above) and nobody spoke the entire time. I said 'hello' and was met with silence, and when I said 'thank you' at the end, it was exactly the same deal. I was the only one who needed an item ...

Vanilla is NOT the Future, and it never will be.
This is most definitely a post about Warcraft, before we begin: Bruce has agreed to act as metaphor, and because sometimes it is easier to use something else before you launch into your point, we're going to start in Gotham. Yesterday was all highs and lows and arguments and stupidity with ...

You want Warcraft news? Nope ^^
It's probably not escaped your notice that there's still not much actual news going on around these parts. When that happens, the 'other' sites tend to return to the stuff they know is guaranteed to get views/hits. In the case of one place that means quoting particular ex-members of Activision ...
