Blue Posts: (More) LFR loot rules clarification, item squish, DotA-style BG, spoilers {WoW}

Mar 19th 2012 11:18PM Wrong. The new system won't have anyone dropping group before loot is distributed, unless the drop during the fight itself. Thus, there won't be any loot wasted that way. Unless, I suppose, their bags are full. But the game could just put it in the mail for them, then.

The Queue: You'll have to move fast {WoW}

Mar 10th 2012 2:56PM @Den:

No amount of 'homework' can prepare someone for Bioware's awful dialogue system. You could be having a conversation with an evil character, confronting them.

Evil Guy: "I'll kill the captain, steal this ship, and destroy that pesky temple!"
>> You select "I can't let you do that."
Your Character: "I can't let you kill the captain. Let me go do it for you."

It's an awful, awful system.

Does gender matter when designing your user interface? {WoW}

Mar 6th 2012 5:50PM If gender ultimately does not matter for UI design, then what was the point of mentioning it in the first place?

The Queue: Everything is better with a ukulele {WoW}

Mar 6th 2012 11:56AM From what I've been told, information embargos exist so that all the press outlets have time to prepare their articles.

The WoW Insider Show Live at PAX East {WoW}

Mar 1st 2012 4:40PM Tough decision:
Watch Gabe and Tycho create a strip live, or see Sacco, Mat, and Fox?

Both will be running at the same time. =(

5 not-so-simple ways Blizzard can fix the World of Warcraft Auction House {WoW}

Feb 21st 2012 5:52PM I completely agree with Rainee.

The nice thing about the Guardian Cub is that the gold return is based on market price. You might sell it for 10k, maybe only 5k. Maybe less! The amount you get is not guaranteed. It's not instant either. It's a really good way to teach people about supply and demand, too.

Breakfast Topic: What makes players pick their class? {WoW}

Feb 19th 2012 8:24AM All of those are spot on except for the mage. Mages don't complain about arcane being boring. Only people who used to play mages complain about arcane being boring!

The Queue: A giddy thing {WoW}

I suspect it has more to do with WoW not having the processing power to deal with paging or Warden, so when you land the client thinks something is wrong and disconnects you as a safety measure. (If it IS Warden, then it likely thinks you've teleported across the world.)

Robert's not-so-original WoW miscellany {WoW}

Jan 24th 2012 7:35PM "Azshara was originally meant to have hosted a 40-man battleground similar to Alterac Valley, the Azshara Crater. The entrance was located on the Forlorn Ridge. The files are still in the game, and it may yet appear."

Azshara Crater is coming in Mists of Pandaria. DotA-style gameplay.
