Enter to win one of two giftpacks from SwagDog and WoW Insider {WoW}

Dec 9th 2008 6:32PM Woot, now I can put off laundry another day!

The Tuesday Morning Post: It's quiet. Too quiet. {WoW}

Dec 9th 2008 1:31PM Bah, let the poor folks at Blizz have a break. :) We've still got plenty of stuff to do before we need an expansion.

Breakfast Topic: Five-man thoughts {WoW}

Dec 7th 2008 10:20AM I must say they're altogether too short. I know we're shooting for more accessibility and more casual play, but when I'm in and out of an instance in 20 minutes on my first time through - I'm left going "that's it?".

WoW Insider's top ten stories of all-time {WoW}

Dec 6th 2008 7:15PM Been reading since you guys first started and it's still one of the best places to go for information on WoW. Officer's Quarters is the cream of the crop and never ceases to be relevant and current.

First episode of the second season of The Guild now live {WoW}

Nov 25th 2008 4:14PM Chrome's not supported either - at least they don't require IE.

Upgrading to greens? Not so much {WoW}

Nov 18th 2008 10:23PM The complaints with TBC was that everyone's hard-won epics were being replaced by lousy greens the moment you stepped foot into outlands and killed 20 orcs. Now the complaints are everyone's easily-obtained epics aren't being replaced by early simple quests.

When taken in the context of a new character - like the death knights - leveling through 60 and through 70 - the gear from quests makes perfect sense. Of course those of us who had time to raid and pvp and purchase/craft epics are going to be ahead of the curve.

The supercomputers behind World of Warcraft {WoW}

Nov 18th 2008 5:09PM They did - I'm sure you've seen the new realms created, and they're offering free transfers from high to low pop realms. Every time you see a new realm, that's Blizz spending money on new hardware.

Weigh in on the downtime debacle {WoW}

Nov 12th 2008 12:03AM Seeing as issues like today show up less than 5 times in a year, and tend to coincide only with major content patches, I'd say Blizzard is doing a damn fine job. I had other things to keep me busy today, so it wasn't that big of a deal. If this happened once a month, I'd be up in arms over it - but it's far less frequent, and there's always a good excuse when it does. As much as everyone thinks throwing more IT people and money at it would solve these problems, I think they're completely wrong. When you're working with a system this big and this complex, it's not going to matter how many skilled people you have working on it, it's gonna get screwed up every once in a while. That Blizz keeps it to a minimum, keeps communication open through the process and implements fixes promptly (and yes, I think within 24 hours can be considered promptly for something that caught them off guard) is a testament to their infrastructure.

Blizzard Calendar vs Group Calendar {WoW}

Nov 6th 2008 10:12AM The biggest downside to GroupCalendar though, is that everyone who wants to make use of it needs to have it installed, and to a certain degree updated. You know for a fact that everyone has BlizzardCalendar access.

I really do hope that Blizzard fixes the invite limit, or better yet, allows for signups instead of requiring invites. For now though, we're looking at creating a specific Raider rank to keep our invites below 100, and for guild-wide events folks just have to look for what's posted rather than get invites.
