And yet, rather popular and filled with hoi polloi when you finally get in…
OK, I admit it, things are a little better now, but I’m still vaguely surprised that my garrison isn’t filled with a couple of hundred of my closest acquaintances every time I login.
And I do spend a lot of time in my Garrison. Possibly too much. This happened today:
Yup, Following Up. My first follower has hit 100. And I’m still… 93.
I bet my followers avert their eyes as I walk past…
(And besides – what sort of moron puts Leafy in charge of a garrison? I ask you…)
Here's how the new Raid Finder system will work in Mists of Pandaria:
- The boss dies.
- The game automatically decides who won some loot, and gives those players a spec-appropriate item.
- Some players may still get mad, but hopefully they are mad at the laws of probability and not at the rest of the raid.
Fascinating – Blizz are essentially turning one of the conventions of MMoRPG lewt on its head as a result of the rise of random party finding mechanisms.
Our guildmaster has temporarily returned from the land of lightsabers and droids to play around in the Mists of Panderia beta. There are his screen grabs…
Blizzard Entertainment announced today that it's reducing the size of its worldwide workforce by 600 employees, a massive decrease for a company that reported 4,600 employees as recently as 2009. However, approximately 90 percent of the reduction will come from areas not directly related to game development, according to the company, limiting the impact on current projects.
I pick my times to return, don't I?
But because, according to Day, the budget for Season 5 was relatively equivalent to Season 4, they needed to look to other means to supplement the production — thankfully, though, the conference setting offered a natural opportunity to integrate product placement. “The question was ‘Can this add to our universe?’ instead of it just being ‘Please give us some money,’” Day said.
Interesting look at how The Guild is raising extra money for production…
I shouldn't find this funny.
But I do.
Pity we haven't even got to the Firelands yet…
Sorry about the radio silence – bust emptying out the flat we've just sold. "Normal" service will resume in about 10 days.
