  • Something wicked this way comes.. Oh wait no. It's just a slimey fish.

    They're saying that Murlocs are a mystery. I say nay. I've killed many, they're pretty common. However (draw out that r because it's mystery time) looks like something big scary and gritty is on it's way into an Azeroth near you. Read More about it.

    Several indicators from the murlocs themselves point to the possibility that the fish-men are but worshippers or underlings of perhaps several deep-sea monstrosities that currently lie sleeping, or at least waiting, in the murky fathoms – and even more disturbing, that the murlocs' emergence is an indication of their incipient awakening.

    If that is the case, the mysterious and somewhat underestimated murlocs may be the world's first glimpse at something far more terrifying.

    Really.. I'm scared. God only knows what it could be? I'm envisioning something akin to Rosie O'donnell on a five day donut binge. *shudder*

  • Let me start by saying that I'm a really picky reader. I don't read alot of other people's editorials because I have so much reading to do during the day that it loses it's appeal. However, I generally tend to read what's on Gamasutra. If only because it's generally really well written.

    Now, to my point. David Sirlin has written an editorial named World of Warcraft Teaches the Wrong Things. Being a staunch defender of my current game, I wanted to read this to find the flaws, prove him wrong. No such luck. He has many valid points in this article and I highly encourage you to read them.

  • The Black Dragonflight. The mere mention of its name is enough to strike fear in the hearts of even the bravest adventurers. The cunning black dragon and undisputed ruler of his flight, Nefarian, has begun to unfold the final stages of his sinister plan to lead his army to supremacy over all the races of Azeroth. Now, watch a courageous band of heroes challenge Nefarian in his own sanctum at the very height of Blackrock Spire in this latest gameplay trailer of Blackwing Lair!

    Wow that sounds pretty sinister doesn't it? It leaves this level 27 n00b Troll shaking. You can download the trailer Here.

  • Looks like character transfer is the phrase of the day. If you want to move to Rexxar and you're on Suramar, Draenor, Feathermoon, or Windrunner, you need to get busy. The transfer will end on Thursday, February 16. That's tomorrow.

    Click here to transfer your character.

    Now, I'm happy for all of the people who get to transfer their characters to new realms to alleviate all of that clogging. However, I'd be extra happy if Blizzard could get off their duffs and fix the lag problem on Sen'jin which is a new server. It was unplayable last night and nobody wants to pay for a game that horks you off because you can't play it.

  • In Newsweekly reports that Blizzard has issued a public apology to Sara Andrews. (Thank you EuroGamer)

    Paul Sams, Blizzard Entertainment's chief operating officer, contacted In Newsweekly and said, "What we've done is decided to add a guild recruitment channel to the game... providing players with a designated area where they can advertise their guilds in an appropriate fashion."

    This would mean that players who wish to find others to associate with will have a channel designated to finding those individuals and will not interfere with the general chat channel.

    Now, I want a public apology for getting frozen out of the game so much that I logged off in a snit.

  • Well 'tis the season and 1up has the exclusive info on what Blizzard plans to do for this day of love and mush.

    In order to make any headway in this rose-colored endeavor, gamers will need to stock up on "Love Tokens" from Innkeepers, which apparently constitutes the currency of love during the event. Blizzard states, specifically, that "In each capital, most of the guards and a couple dozen townsfolk are infected with amore. Periodically, they will become "Amorous" -- you'll know this by the floating heart above their head. An Amorous NPC is receptive to gifts of love, specifically Love Tokens (purchased from innkeepers). In return for a Love Token, they will reward the player with their own gifts. Some of these gifts are toys for players to play with, while others are "quest" items used to create Gift Collections." It gets more complicated than that though. Nothing is ever easy in the game of love, and as in real life, there is the horrifying possibility of rejection. But don't despair, where there's a will there's a way. In the event of rejection "there is a small chance when a player gives a Love Token to an NPC that he or she will be rejected. When this occurs, players will become "Heartbroken" for a certain amount of time. However, players can help their heartbroken friends by giving them a Friendship Bracelet and displaying the 'Power of Friendship.'"

    Hah to Boomjack! People ARE going to be saying "Just one more friend and I'll log off." I guess I'm going to have to switch from auto kill mode to auto hugs. It's a little disconcerting.

  • GI.biz interviewed Blizzard on the Euro login problems

    GamesIndustry.biz: Many World of Warcraft players have recently been complaining that they have to wait for long periods of time to get in the game once they've entered their username and password - and that sometimes it's not possible to log in at all. Are these problems still ongoing?

    John Lagrave: A lot of the login issues are persisting. They're much less than what they were, but we have been having some incredible concurrency with the game itself, and as such that's put quite a bit of burden on the existing hardware that we have.

    Can you explain what you mean by concurrency?

    John Lagrave: It's just that suddenly a lot of people showed up - sort of like when you're at a party and suddenly 15 people walk through the door and they all want a drink. It's like, "Well, I'll get that to you, but it's going to take a bit of time," and that's what we've found.

    We've been very fortunate in that a large number of people came into the game just recently; we've had good growth throughout the past year, but we had exceptionally high numbers come in over the holidays. Which was wonderful, and we're glad they're all there, but it put some additional stress onto the system and we've had to respond to that.

    I understand that there are over five million subscribers. I understand that they expanded so quickly that everyone went into shock. What I don't understand is how they get the cream in the center of the Twinkie. It just boggles my mind.

  • The reputations section of World of Warcraft has been updated. Brood of Nozdormu

    In the lives of most mortals, time is nothing more than a simple hourglass, its sands quietly trickling away. Only few ever realize that in truth, time rages like a storm, untamed and chaotic. When the Titans first descended on Azeroth, vanquishing the Old Gods and bringing order to the world, the Highfather of the Pantheon himself empowered the great dragon Nozdormu with some of his own cosmic powers, enabling the dragon to guard time itself and police the ever-spinning pathways of fate and destiny. And so, the stoic, honorable Nozdormu became known as the Timeless One. Ever since then, Nozdormu's Brood has guarded the timestream from all who would seek to disrupt its flow, guided by the Timeless One's wise, all-knowing counsel.
