WoW Insider's Cataclysm Launch Giveaway: GeForce GTX 580 graphics card {WoW}

Dec 7th 2010 8:59PM I could really use this considering my card decided to die at 9:20 pm while I was out at the Fountain Valley midnight launch.

Disappointment with the patch 3.1 game world {WoW}

May 7th 2009 2:07PM I think you're setting up a correlation between 2.4 and 3.1 that just isn't there. The Sunwell Plateau content was an end-of-expansion release, while the Ulduar patch is a mid-expansion release. Patch 3.1 is closer in scale to Patch 2.1, the Black Temple release. Did we see parades in Shattrath when that released? Nope. Was it a huge leap forward for content in one specific zone? You betcha.

If you were expecting a grand end-of-expansion release, it's still coming. The tournament is still in its infancy, it's skeleton is placed in Icecrown, but it has yet to be flushed out. When it is in Patch 3.2, that STILL won't be the analogous patch to 2.4, since that is only adding a battleground and a 5-man instance.

While you are entitled to your disappointment, I think you set yourself up for it by misunderstanding what Patch 3.1 is all about. It's building the world that Wrath brought us, not wrapping it up with the ultimate end game instance.

/silly: Arturis's farewell {WoW}

Dec 4th 2007 9:17PM We will miss you all greatly. WoW Insider has served as my extended family for seven months now, and I will continue to follow you all as you continue on to greatness. Virtual hugs to you all, and who knows, maybe we can meet again at the next BlizzCon.

Will professional gaming change the World of Warcraft as we know it? {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2007 10:46AM If Esports in Azeroth are in the near future, does this mean that we will have to request an old school Olympics rule system, where amateurs are separated from pros? I can't see it being fair in any respect for a paid player to come up against those who play in their spare time. It brings a whole new meaning to the term "hard core."

"Classic" servers for a simpler time {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2007 10:42AM I would definitely love to play on a classic server, but not for nostalgia reasons. I am in a small guild that never got to see the end-game raid content, and I would love to be able to see Naxx and BWL, whether or not the gear is obsolete. I think that the Classic server concept would allow those of us who haven't had the chance to see those uber instances to get a look at what we missed.

You're right, it is a niche market, and perhaps we are being offered less than the professional going rate. But you forget one thing: this is a niche market that we WANT to write for. Amateur does not necessarily mean bad writing. Some of us have no way of commanding the sorts of fees that you suggest we hold out for, simply because we need the experience to show we are worth the money.

An opportunity like this, in a cut-throat industry like this, is rare and cherished by those of us looking to make use of our writing for more than just forum posts and rants. I have had only two chances to break into the industry I love, and this is by far the most compelling. This chance is not for everyone, true, but to disparage the opportunity because of the lack of viability of the experience outside the industry is to ignore how vital it would be for those looking to stay in the industry.
