Is the Alliance aiming to retake lost lands in Cataclysm? {WoW}

Feb 11th 2010 8:25PM If the Alliance want to take back the Undercity they should start by working on the Kingdoms of Stromgard and Alterac. This would give them a better foothold that did relay so much on the Alliance Navy which became a problem during the second war. And If Calia Menethil is still alive which she might be, the lore is unclear. That would even give the Alliance a rightful heir to the Throne of Lordaeron in which to justify an invation. At the very least they could give her the Kingdom of Alterac. Which would also play nicely against a Deathwing storyline since Deathwing is the one who turn the Alterac against the Alliance.

As for the Eastern Plaugelands it makes complete sense that after the Scarlet Crusade was killed by Arthas and the dks that the Alliance would reclaim the Port at Tyr's Hand.

WoW Insider Show Episode 122: Press the [Spoon] button {WoW}

Dec 30th 2009 2:27PM I greatly enjoyed your show guys. Different yes but never good insights I look forward to more.

How the WoW community is about to push the self-destruct button {WoW}

Dec 13th 2009 1:49AM I tend to agree with a large part of this article. The two main issues with it are.
1. The Vocal Minority is a good name, it says a lot of things like its only a few people that are in this group and that they are more willing that most to say what they think. That said Blaming a nameless faceless group of people is not affective way of getting them to change there behavior. If political X blame problem y on Immigrates, minorities, religious folks, folks from another region, or some other group of people that has no power but it visible. They aren't so much making a statement about what is wrong with said group but rather than the Author or the Politician x in this case is saying they are part of the majority, and that we should listen to them. That is not to say Adam is wrong. I tend to think he is right but blaming a poorly defined group does nothing to solve the problem.

2. Blizzard creates there own worse monsters.
Blizzard doesn't comes to player opened handed. There is no official blog, there podcast is joke, and you need a hunting dog and a wedgie board to find meaning in most blue posts on the forums.

Blizzard should keep secrets but they also should be willing to tell the community they are dropping patch more than 24 hours before it launches. I mean who are they keeping this information from its not there competitors they have no equal. Its the players.

The same goes for class balance if they were more open with changes and how they are addressing problems it would be less of an issue. Look at the hunter Cower bug been in the game for well over a year, and barely a word. Now cower was getting retooled to address the problem.

There are no silver bullets that will make all "Vocal Minority" happy. But an official blog rather than hiding comments in Blue post that only the most hard core fans read. Would be a great help in making all the players more aware of the Devs activities. I would also suggest at that point killing the forums. Honestly they have done little good and there are other ways for people give input. Ghostcrawer is bigger man that me for going into that pit day after day and he deserves respect, but respect is a two way street and for my money I feel I give more than I receive.

That is my Two copper.
