Quiting WoW

27 November 2009


So you’ve been playing WoW for a while.  You’re probably into raiding, but not necessarily.  Something happened last week.  You don’t know what triggered it (or perhaps you do), but you realised you’re just not into WoW that much anymore.  What do you do?

Recently Blizzard introduced the first microtransactions into WoW in the form of purchasable vanity pets (a panda monk + Lil’KT).  This caused a variety of reactions from the blogging community.  Some were unhappy, others were unfazed.  In my experience the in-game community barely noticed.

23 November 2009

Tasty Ice Crown info

20 November 2009


My sneaky little call for 24th November being the Ice Crown go live date is starting to look better and better (if I do say so myself).

Wow.com have a couple of useful posts about the 3.3 patch which are very relevant to raiders. With an influx of more detailed information about a major patch usually comes a patch soon after.  But anyway on to the posts…

Blog smack down – Gevlon vs Marko

18 November 2009


In the red corner we have Gevlon the goblin, poster of interesting, radical, but often difficult to follow posts (not always WoW related) about sociology, the economy and his view of the world.

In the blue corner we have Markco, Master of the Gold Guide.  Markco’s Just My Two Copper blog alternates between attempting to sell his WoW gold guide and posting some very good gold making tips.

We pick up the brawl as some of the proverbial smelly stuff has hit the fan.  Markco has approached Gevlon to host links to his gold guide.  Gevlon has outted Markco in his usual blunt style and now the fight is on.  Supporters are lining up on both sides and one of Markco’s comments on Gevlon’s blog has been deleted.  It appears Markco threatened to sue Gevlon…

Tobold has been dragged into the fray.

Viewers are eagerly awaiting the next punch from Markco on his blog.

Exciting interwebs drama or just another blog post to ‘mark as read’?

Gobble gobble.

PS. Yes I know this isn’t my usual genre, but i’m feeling contrary this morning.
