Have Group, Will Travel replaced with faster flight paths, flask "Chug-A-Lug" perk removed {WoW}

Mar 22nd 2012 1:48PM Forcing me to waste time taking flight points just means that I won't have time to do anything "out in the world". Seriously, this feature is only used by grouped players with a specific objective (raid, dungeon, etc ) in mind. If that objective isn't "out in the world" to begin with this change nets nothing.
If they feel this spell is being exploited some way, then just restrict when and how it's used.

Mists of Pandaria beta opt-in and official FAQ {WoW}

Mar 21st 2012 9:34AM I think that A LOT of people are going to learn that being in a beta is often not so great. ...and Blizz is going to learn that big big beta was a bad idea. Between the QQ regarding entry, and there will be much, to the burn out and boredom with new content for anyone playing more than a a couple weeks this is more than likely going to be a disaster.
Here is to hoping I'm wrong.

WoW Insider's Mists of Pandaria coverage {WoW}

Mar 19th 2012 7:15AM No new character models is a huge, huge disappointment. Sorry Blizz but overall the information released here is a 5/10 at best. This is not going to be good enough Blizz, not by a longshot. better get crackin or those sub numbers are going to take a massive dip that will make 2011's losses look pale by comparison.

Also, I think the NDA week is backfiring. In particular since all the screen shots and videos made it out over the weekend anyway.

Dave Kosak talks quest design in Cataclysm {WoW}

Feb 28th 2012 1:42PM "Overwhelmingly, players have told us that they want more quests where you have to flap a giant bird around a cave while targeting creatures in a 3D space."

....at least they recognize what they did after the fact. Now, let's see if they can avoid making the same mistakes again.

I still insist that somewhere in Blizzard HQ is a door labeled "Department of Awkward and Frustrating Game Mechanics". Let's hope its been locked up for MoP development.

Scattered Shots: New hunter MoP talent updates {WoW}

Feb 23rd 2012 11:24AM There are also the glaives Wesley Snipes used in the Blade movies and IIRC the Beastmaster (yes, the 80s cheese flick) had a thrown type glaive as well.

I'm sure this is what Blizz has in mind and not a pole.

Also this:

The Queue: Creepiest class combo {WoW}

Feb 16th 2012 2:25PM QFTQ:

Why do you answer so many questions from Puntable?

Do you just think they are that in tune with what is on the mind of the average player?
Is there a gold for Queue time scandal on the horizon?
Is Puntable a joystiq shill, used because the comment section lacks material to provide a daily Queue?
Or, is it something more sinister than all those things combined?

World of Warcraft subscriber numbers dip 100,000 to 10.2 million {WoW}

Feb 9th 2012 5:38PM The WoW forums may have slightly less QQ because Blizz released a content patch that made a bunch of folks happy, myself included. Trust me, that dip would have been much, much bigger if they had not pushed LFR out.

I still really don't think these numbers show the actual impact of SWTOR, most people I know that jumped waited till they were playing a bit before killing a WoW sub, and lauch was the last week of the quarter. I expect Q1 2012 to show a bigger loss.

Hopefully, this pushes Blizz to get MoP out in as timely a manner as possible, GW2 looks like it's right around the corner.

The Queue: Are we still having this conversation? {WoW}

Dec 2nd 2011 12:49PM Are we going to see a WoW Insider summary of the LFR exploit and fallout?

BlizzCon 2011: Mists of Pandaria Preview Panel liveblog {WoW}

Oct 21st 2011 4:22PM That wasn't the point.

The point is, what I’m seeing from this expansion is a big bucket of blah, topped off something that is WAY too close to a crappy cartoon franchise. I don’t care when they were first introduced to the game, kung fu pandas as an expansion theme big, big mistake.
IMO, this is a total quickster from blizz.

BlizzCon 2011: Mists of Pandaria Preview Panel liveblog {WoW}

Oct 21st 2011 3:42PM The starting panda hunter pet will be a clownfish, the racial mount will be a red talking race car with the flying mount as a house attached to a large number of balloons.

Annual subscription? I think not Blizz. Thus far, none of this is very enticing at all.
