Proof that Blizzard's writers are not as good as you think...

Taken from the Official Blog.

Yet this auspicious event ended in tragedy. The details are still unclear, but word has spread that an incredibly powerful Twilight's Hammer agent, shrouded to hide his identity, interrupted the ceremony and struck down Thrall with dark magics... casting his spirit into the four domains of the Elemental Plane. If these terrible rumors hold true, the Earthen Ring -- indeed, all of Azeroth -- has potentially lost one of its greatest champions.

…Is this the end of the Son of Durotan?

Excuse me, the writer inside me is going to go outside and puke his guts out.

There's a line between subtlety and blatant. This takes a running leap over that line, screaming, "LEEEROOOYYYY JEEEEENKIIIIIIIINS!!!!!"

Do we really need more Thrall?

MMO Champion discusses about a rumored epic quest line centered around Thrall in Patch 4.2.

Seriously, I'm starting to get sick of this spineless hypocrite.

Was three books, the whole of WoW-Vanilla, TBC, and Wrath, and WCIII not enough?

Come on, Blizzard. Alliance lore is stagnating and you're putting in MORE lore for this putz?Link

Gotta love the Horde....

...when people say amazing things such as;

Lady Sylvanas is way hot.

Just go to show, that even if you make a corpse with all the personality of a turnip dress like some Jersey Shore tramp, the little wankers will act just like Ivan Pavlov's dogs.

Why no Blizzcon for me, never.

Ah, Blizzcon. Sweet, endearing, Blizzcon.

The primary reason why I am not going, and frankly have no inclination to go, is the ticket prices. Granted, that can be overcome by someone who has a steady job and some money saved up. That, in it of itself, is not a problem. The problem is that some of us are still looking for jobs and our best bet is to apply for as many as humanly possible and hope that one sticks.

Some would say that the amount for tickets aren't that big a deal. Sure, by themselves, no. But for those who don't have the luxury of living near Anaheim, you have to include travel fare, consumables, and hotel stay. As someone who is notoriously bad with his money, I can safely say that it adds up a *lot* faster than you think.

If it weren't bad enough that your asking price for tickets is only going upwards in an economy going down, but the entire experience for those that would like to go just to see what the hubub is about only seems to be available for Horde players.

I have been told, by multiple individuals, that if you have the unmitigated gall to admit that you prefer the Alliance over the Horde, you will be treated with hostility. I'm just waiting for the occasion when some unsuspecting person gets bumrushed and beaten up by a group of teenage boys, and beaten savagely, all the while, said teenagers scream, "FUR DAH HORDE!!!111".

It's an ironic thing that Blizzard has brought upon themselves. Since Warcraft 3, they have always paraded how awesome the Horde was, at the expense of the Alliance, and now it's starting to go into areas they would have rather not, on a professional basis.

So, let's recap:

The Blizzcon experience is expensive, Alliance unfriendly, and there's no guarantee that you'll even have the chance to do what you'd like there.

Don't get me wrong, I would like to go to Blizzcon and see the sights, it's just not written in the cards for me and frankly, I'm not too broken up about it.

A temporary hiatus from the game, but not the blog.

Next monday, my timecard for WoW expires.

The primary reason is that WoW has become too much of a liability in terms of time required and money, especially when I still need to look long and hard for a job. It's in part my fault for not being better with my time, I will admit, but part of the design of WoW should not be left blameless on this account.

However, just because I am leaving the game for a while as I look for work, does not mean I can't say what I feel here. And best of all, you can't get banned by Horde loving Douchebags that hate the idea of ANYONE calling out the horde for the bad things they do. If you want to bring it on, I've got ten friends here, (insert ten names of Bad-ass individuals here), that'd be more than willing to let you have it.

In another post, I'm gonna list another reason why I left the game and it has more to do with the above paragraph than the money, but it's not the exact reason. Beware the dwarf, people!
