Patch 5.4 PTR: Latency and FPS info moved to a new home

Patch 54 PTR Latency and FPS info moved to a new home
With the appearance of the Blizzard In-game Store icon in the menu, something had to go. And the icon that took the hit was the little computer monitor picture that had previously held information about latency, framerate, bandwidth, download information, and allowed players to open up the in-game menu with a single click.

Now, first and foremost, it's worth bearing in mind that Blizzard representatives have suggested pretty strongly that the in-game store will launch, initially at least, on Asian servers only. So, it's possible that this might not be a problem for US and EU servers. It might never be a problem, or at least, not for a while.

Nonetheless, Blizzard's devs have thought of this. While you can't click on it to open the menu any more -- you can just hit Escape instead -- the tooltip showing this useful information on mouseover has been rehomed, and now lives on the red question mark -- the customer support icon. Don't look at my numbers, though. I know it's bad.

McCormick and Schmick's special BlizzCon menu

Truth be told, I didn't get to try a lot of the local cuisine in Anaheim this time around at BlizzCon -- we did have a nice dinner at the Anabella before the meetup, and we did try the buffet breakfast at the Indian restaurant in the Ramada Plaza, but other than that, most of my food came from the caterer in the press room. But at least one local restaurant got in the BlizzCon spirit -- seafood-and-steak hotspot McCormick and Schmick's apparently put a special Blizzard-related themed menu together for conventiongoers to pick from. And it's pretty funny -- they must have someone on staff who plays Diablo and WoW a lot.

I especially like the "Noob Entrees," the "Death Knight Filet Mignon" (it can dual wield two flavors while tanking your taste buds?), and the Grizzly Hills Blueberry Shortcake. Which actually sounds really, really good -- it does kind of seem like Grizzly Hills would grow some great blueberries, doesn't it? Good show, M&S. All of the BlizzCon folks were pretty unmissable in Anaheim this past weekend, so it's cool to see a local busines play to the temporary clientele.
