Breakfast Topic: I love

Matt Rossi and 248 of you (as of last night around ten) might hate things in the game, and that's cool. There's some things that I hate, too.

But you know what? I'm a lover, not a fighter. Why hate when you can love, after all?

There are a few things I love in the game. I love the satisfaction when an alt dings to 60, 70, or 80. There's always great new skills to be learned and new challenges to face. Nothing is more addicting to an MMO addict than reaching those benchmarks.

I love the feeling at the end of the raid when you've downed an impossible boss, giving everything you and 24 other people had to make it happen. My buddy Jacob and I have often reminisced that we haven't had that feeling for a long time – not really since Kael'Thas, Illidan, or any of the Sunwell bosses -- but it was so damn good when it did happen that I'll take those memories with me into the next decade of game playing.

Along those same lines, the arena battle where you end with just a few dozen points of health left and everyone else lies dead before your might – that's epic. I love that. The exhilaration, the sheer skill and determination to stay alive in a virtual world propels such legendary wins.

So I have a challenge for you today, dearest WoW.com readers, let's love more than hate. I'm sure there's more than 248 things you all love about WoW -- show the world that all you need is love.

And to sweeten the deal, I'll select 5 people whose responses I like the best and email them a TCG loot code, to be selected at random from a stack of codes that include Slashdance, Papa Hummel's Old-Fashioned Pet Biscuit, and a few others. Get your answers in before 11:59 p.m. EDT tonight (September 14th), which is when I'll select the winners and send them their codes.

So tell me, what do you love?

Love is in the Air begins tomorrow


Love is in the Air everywhere I look around.

Love is in the Air every sight and every sound.

And I don't know if I'm being foolish, don't know if I'm being wise. But it's something I must believe in, and it's there when I look in your eyes.


Tomorrow will mark the start of the Love is in the Air season event. Theoretically, from past events, it should start around 4:00 a.m. sever time. But whether or not that ends up being true, you'll have to check for yourself.

You'll need to get finish the achievement Fool for Love in order to get the ultimate seasonal achievement What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been. The thing is... you only have a few days to get Fool For Love, so hurry up. The seasonal event ends early next Monday morning.

Ideally you'll want to set aside some time tomorrow night; you don't want to be waiting until Saturday evening to do this. Unless, you know, you and your significant other are into that sort of thing. (I'm talking about playing WoW together. Jeeze... get your mind out of the gutter. You don't think I'm just going to sit here and make gratuitous Valentine's Day jokes for the rest of the week, do you?)

So what are you waiting for?

"AFK honey, need to become a fool for love."
