Policies, not purchases are what makes the difference.

Brazil shows the way.

Balls. That sounds like exactly the game I was hoping they were making. 

One of the things that's weirdest about MMOs is being told "You are the special unique hero! Please save me!" when there are 50 other people in a queue behind you waiting to talk to the same NPC to do the same quest. I had been chewing over in my mind an MMO that looked a bit like the Buffyverse - slaying by night, working out how to pay the rent by day - where in the "Day" world you don't see a bunch of other superheros hanging around breaking your immersion, just mundane shops and jobs and so on. 

But I guess if Blizzard couldn't make it fun, it's probably not a fun idea. 

Still v. much enjoying The Secret World; the Real World Plus does make a more satisfying MMO setting than cartoon fantasy Azeroth.

+TotalBiscuit, The Cynical Brit - A Hearthstone gimmick series I'd like to watch:

You pick just one search term, and have to build a deck only from cards returned by that search term. Sure, "Death Rattle" is the obvious choice. But is it the best? Might "Damage" or "Whenever" or "Attack" or "Give" result in a deck with better synergies and a better curve? Even "Card" won't result is a deck with nothing but draw; you can play Questing Adventurers and Mountain Giants and Twilight Drakes and Ysera...

The only way to find out which is best is for the Cynical Brit to put together a fun little tournament with some top streamers with nothing better to do, and have them battle it out. 

[If the ruleset needs loosening, also allow cards with no card text at all (Yeti, Ogre) in any deck]
