Segment 1: Moments of Zen
Tess – I was top of the DPS meter! Still got it. And I’m SO EXCITED for the 11th!! That’s the last night I have “Holiday Night” work hours, so starting on the 12th, I finally get to play again!! Just in time for new content!

Militus – Running a dungeon with Boom, Nick, and Tess was awesome, especially when I was literally chastising the shadow priest and hoping for a mob to kill them. Bahahaha. I actually ran a Mythic plus for the first time in MONTHS! It was… okay.

Boom -. When 4 of us played some low level dungeons together and the one pug had to deal with our pace. Also when Militus tanked as a monk and was just pulling everything everywhere and I couldn’t keep up with where he was at.
Segment 1: News/Topic
Boom’s Son has all but given up on WoW. The attempt to bring in the younger generation wasn’t successful.

Story 1. Wrath Time Walking this week! Yay!

Story 2. Item level increases in Tides of Vengeance.
https://www.wowhead.com/news=288938/increasing-item-level-rewards-in-patch-8-1

Story 3. Boom’s wallet is NOT happy. 🙁

Boom – Actually Boom’s wallet is getting fatter because the further it drops the more I buy. This is like the ultimate sale. I am going to double down soon.

Segment 2: MILITUS REDDIT
1. Sylvanas is sick of this shit by Ewizaboof
Watch this video… LMAO!

Sylvanas is sick of this shit from wow

2. Darkmoon Faire Dungeon would be fun by Pipedown53
What if they added a dungeon that was only open during Darkmoon Faire?
It could be in the style of a fun house and the bosses would drop Prize tickets, Toys, Pets, and Mounts instead of gear. Just something really random and fun.
Militus: Think Protogrames Dungeon from Wildstar! It could be goofy and fun.
Tess: Or the Carnival zone from Secret World! OR the Acquisitions Incorporated Broken Faire ride quest from Neverwinter!
3. Our guild finally killed G’huun posted by reicha7
Our guild is not a raiding guild but we’ve always had a small number of folks who want to do raids so have been steadily clearing Normal Uldir these last few months. We had always hit a brick wall with Mythrax only managing to kill him once a few weeks ago but tonight was different.

Despite starting our raid late and having a few inexperienced members we managed to stomp through the first 7 bosses with no wipes and got to G’huun with 45 minutes left on our time for the night. Half our group had never even seen the boss (not even LFR), our comp was not great for orb running and we had no warlock.

Despite all this, the guys and gals managed to bring the big worm down on our 5th pull with some awesome first-time orb runners really giving it their all and all 15 of us survived the whole fight.

I know at this point it doesn’t seem like much to down him on normal but we are not all big raiders (a few of us do pug runs of normal and hc) and as a guild we have never really been able to down any boss at current content (combination of low numbers and general struggles with the fights) but this time we were determined to do it and did.

As our raid leader, I am just super happy with my guild and wanted to share it 🙂

Segment 1: Moments of Zen
Tess – I played a chunk of other games while I enjoyed my time off with my family.

Militus – I was completing a WQ in Tiregard Sound and ran into a Mage. We had an interesting buff exchange. LOL.

Boom -. Thanksgiving week brought lots of family and friends and various activities. With the week off I also gamed my ass off and played Warhammer 40k Mechanicus, MTG Arena, Breach (Alpha), Overwatch and made it to level 63 in Neverwinter. The highlight was the Black Friday sale where I picked up tons of 75% off Overwatch league gear. Fitted hats! $10, T-shirts $6 and a killer jacket, $30. I even grabbed up the Overwatch Legos of Bastion my favorite Overwatch hero.

Segment 1: News/Topic
Story 1. Patch 8.1 (Dec. 11) will be released in tiers. See the tiers below:

Story 2. What in the hell is happening at Blizzard right now? Read this article:
https://kotaku.com/the-past-present-and-future-of-diablo-1830593195

Militus – The only thing that can kill WoW is WoW… is that now happening? No shit. I am legitimately worried.

Boom – This is the WOD team. I want to open up with this comment. WoW is now the most graphically pretty MMO I think there is. (crazy I know) However, I want a more complex MMO. I want one that takes a long time to level (I feel like I should just be hitting cap now from an expansion). I want lots of currencies and confusion and things that make me immersed in the world because I have to explore and discover. WoW is just really familiar and streamlined to the point that it is something I play, not experience. These expansions seem to get thinner and thinner each time. Militus and I ran an entire zone in two hours during the opening night. That seems crazy to me.

With all that said, Blizzard Activision is set to make a crap ton of money next year if they push out a new title and expansions for all of their games. I am a conspiracy theorist and I actually believe they are holding announcements to purposely lower their stock price for a potential stock buyback because they are a few announcements away from a record few years. 2019/2020 could be huge for Blizzard. That is just my conspiracy though.

With the recent leaks from Blizzard, how it feels like:

Posted by
u/chr1s003
Back in the day you were rewarded for hitting max level….
So, I hit 120 today on one of my alts and I immediately felt bored and empty.

Back in the day you used to hit max level and think “YES!, I can finally learn this cool new spell I’ve been waiting for!”
Now you hit 120 and to gain access to the same shit we’ve been doing since Legion. WQ’s, etc.

They need to take some Legion legendary effects or something and add at least 1 more talent tier. IMO

Blizzard will NEVER Draw in a new player base if 100-120 is a void of nothingness but levels…. New players will simply quit with nothing to look forward too, I know I would.

Thoughts about this post? Agree or Disagree? Why?

Tess-

Militus – I had fun running BC TW dungeons. Love them so much.

Boom -. I created a chinese Apple account and downloaded the game that Diablo Immortal is based on. I have been playing it on my phone. This prompted me to start learning Chinese.

Raided, went 2/2 Mythic. Got a 370 weapon. Did a quest got a 355 shoulder set up. Put me at 360. I am doing decent DPS. I 100% stopped trying to get flying. I don’t even care.

Let me tell you about this game…

Why does Blizzard LOVE Paladins so much? More animations.

ONLY HOLY. Ret does get a a new animation from an azeriate trait, though. Still no love for the prot.
Tess is sad.

New PTR build shows 5th ring for Azerite armor:
On the chest shown as example, the new ring unlocks at Azerite level 23. The normal rings will unlock after, at Azerite levels 27, 31, 35 and 39.

There are some changes to Amerite coming in 8.1, but nothing for Prot Pally. Tess is sad.

Segment 1: Moments of Zen
Tess – I got to play for an hour this week! Got my neck to 25. WB didn’t have anything I needed so I didn’t roll and thus endeth the Tess WB drop run of madness. 7 items in 6 weeks was a killer run, though. I DLed Destiny 2 since it was free, but I doubt I’ll play it much.

Militus – My heroic feats in island expeditions and I went behind enemy lines and shared space with 4 dirty Horde for a Blizzcon watching party.

Boom -. I got to raid and get some new gear. I had surgery and was only able to raid the first little bit. I had a good time as always with the people.

I played a little bit of Destiny 2, was able to get the 600 Halloween event gun. So that was cool. I played some League of Legends because of Worlds. I really like that game as an eSport. And I also dipped my toes in some Heroes of the Storm and had more fun that I expected to with that game.

The Straight Poop with Tess, Militus and Boom:
Blizzcon – The Great Diablo Caper of 2018 NERD RAGE! Is it right, is it wrong or is it just what it is?

Boom – I don’t think Blizzard is wrong and I don’t think the fans are wrong. I think Blizzard is doing what they think is best. They just happen to be becoming just like every other game company.

Everything below is just my ranting.
Dedicated to creating the most epic entertainment experiences…ever.
Blizzard Entertainment’s eight core values represent the principles and beliefs that have guided our company throughout the years. These values are reflected in employees’ decisions and actions every day.

Gameplay First:
Everything we do at Blizzard Entertainment is based on the success of the gaming experiences we provide our players. The goal of each discipline within the company — be it art, programming or customer support — is to make our games as fun as possible for as many people as we can reach.
Maybe:
***Not sure how the game will play. Maybe it will be amazing?

Commit to Quality:
“Blizzard polish” doesn’t just refer to our gameplay experiences, but to every aspect of our jobs. We approach each task carefully and seriously. We seek honest feedback and use it to improve the quality of our work. At the end of the day, most players won’t remember whether the game was late — only whether it was great.
Maybe:
***I am guessing they have some level of quality control around this game title. I think this is what is most in question.

Play Nice and Play Fair:
In our business first impressions are important — but lasting impressions are everything. We strive to maintain a high level of respect and integrity in all interactions with our players, colleagues, and business partners. The conduct of each Blizzard Entertainment employee, whether online or offline, can reflect on the entire company.
Probably:
***The first impression was rough, so I predict the title will be delayed to make sure that it is amazing when it launches to make it a lasting impression.

Embrace your Inner Geek
Everyone here is a geek at heart. Cutting-edge technology, comic books, science fiction, top-end video cards, action figures with the kung-fu grip…. Whatever it is they’re passionate about, it matters that each employee embraces it! Their unique enthusiasm helps to shape the fun, creative culture that is Blizzard Entertainment.
Yes:
***Geeks don’t just play on PC’s The world is mobile and as much as PC gamers might feel that they are superior, this is going to give an experience to an entire new world of gamer.

Everyone’s Voice Matters:
Great ideas can come from anywhere. Blizzard Entertainment is what it is today because of the voices of our players and of each member of the company. Every employee is encouraged to speak up, listen, be respectful of other opinions, and embrace criticism as just another avenue for great ideas.
No (But not all the voices were heard, only those of hardcore PC gamers):
***They deleted allegedly as many as 60k negative posts on youtube and thumbs down.
***They deleted the top negative comment repeatedly.

Think Globally:
Everywhere on the planet there are people who play Blizzard Entertainment games. While respecting the cultural diversity that makes people unique, we strive to grow and support our global gaming community. We also seek the most passionate, talented people in the world to enrich our company and help us forge the future vision of Blizzard Entertainment.
Yes:
***I think this is to reach the title to more people around the world.

Lead Responsibly:
Our products and practices can affect not only our employees and players — but the industry at large. As one of the world’s leading game companies, we’re committed to making ethical decisions, always keeping our players in mind, and setting a strong example of professionalism and excellence at all times.
Probably Not:
****Removing comments and downvotes might be not ethical. PR damage control might be a little on the sketchy side.

Learn and Grow:
The games industry is ever-changing. Technology improves, techniques change, and design philosophies become outdated. Since the founding of Blizzard Entertainment, we’ve worked to improve through experience, teaching one another and cultivating the desire to be the best at what we do. We see this as an individual responsibility as well as a company one. Employees can count on their peers, managers, and the company itself to be supportive and help them gain the knowledge and training they need.
Yes:
****I think this is the main initiative of this move. They are adapting to an ever changing market.

My wife was even disappointed. Hahaha. This is like Apple having Dell make a computer for them to cover the lower budget market and having it still run windows OS and being like “You guys will love it”

Simple case of a Company blowing it with knowing their audience. If this isn’t announced at Blizzcon I don’t think it really gets much attention. This is a conference, a very expensive one, that is full of the hardest core fans of PC titles that built Blizzard. I think in their mind all of them own phones and this would be great for them, but it really isn’t. I am sure they will rush out a D4 announcement soon.

Why did they not just say “We have D4 in the works, but it isn’t ready yet?” They could have shown a logo and made all this rage go away.

As for the rage, Blizzard created this monster. When you are Apple or Blizzard, you create fans of your product that will follow you through the muck and mud. They really buy “WHY” you do what you do and not “What” you do. Fans of this company love them for their commitment to excellent home grown titles with unprecedented excellence. The move to announce a game made by another company, a Chinese company, that is just a reskinned version of a game they already built isn’t true to WHY Blizzard fans are super fans. THey are asking people to buy what they make, and that is just like every other game company. And they didn’t do this with a new franchise, they did it with one that people are passionate about.
As for the fans, they are hurt, and hurt people want revenge. They are not entitled to anything, this is a business. I hate the term entitlement being thrown around about a company. This is how companies are held in check. This is how they make good choices and don’t make the same mistakes. If Blizzard embraces the rage and moves forward they will have success. If they label the fams as “entitled or spoiled” they are officially just like every other game company out there. The special will be gone forever. The next era will be profit maximization and game quality will no longer be WHY they make games.

Segment 1: Hot Topic
Thoughts about the current state of the game a couple months into BFA. What are the hits, what are the misses for each of us?

Militus –
Hits. Zone design, Raids.
Misses: Expeditions, Warfronts, class design, Azerite armor, and necklace

Tess –
Hits: Warfronts are fun. The stories they’ve given us are great.
Misses: Island Expeditions. I don’t like them. Only done one and it was enough. Crafting.

Boom:
Hits:
Warfronts – I like them, I just wish they were more often.
Island Expeditions – I really enjoy these.
Raiding – It has been fun. Encounters are great.

Misses:
Rep Grind:
I woke up and decided I will not go after pathfinder for this expansion. I don’t need it. I don’t want to level any alts and the stuff is so close together I don’t know that flying is actually worth the rep grind. If I get it great, if not, I don’t care. I am no longer grinding rep, it just isn’t very important to me any longer.

Dungeons:
Nick made it to iLVL 335 without running a single dungeon. So he is basically going from leveling to raiding. LFG dungeons are no longer a thing, and I think it is on purpose. I feel like Blizzard thinks LFG was a mistake and I remember them mentioning something along those lines a while back. Not LFG as a tool, but the fact it took away the social aspect of the game where you needed to get to know somebody genuinely in order to play. But to be honest it is a feature that I really miss and I want to have LFG dungeons matter, I want reasons to run them and I want to enjoy that content again away from a mythic setting. I don’t like what “timed” mythics have done to the game. I like challenge, but the timer really ruins the event.

Segment 2: Moments of Zen
Tess – WB Drop, again, ha! Exalted on Proudmore, Turtles, and 7th so far. Will get the rest within the week.

Militus – The exalted… with everything. 🙂 My moment in a warfront. Mila and a frost mage is all you need baby. Parsed in 98th percentile on Mother Heroic in DPS! 🙂

Boom – Raid 8/8. Pretty cool. My son 115 and climbing. Can’t wait to raid and stuff with him. Still have not run a dungeon in a long time. G’huun downed!!! Yay!!!

I played so much Destiny 2 this week. At one point I was screaming at my computer yelling “hell ya!” because I was having so much fun. I ordered the legendary collection from Amazon for $39 which will give me all of the content that I have missed. So I am thinking I will be very active in that game for a little bit. DESTINY!

Segment 4: News
Don’t pack heat at Blizzcon (maybe I should not joke about this?) Gun violence. 🙁
https://www.wowhead.com/news=287994/security-improvements-for-blizzcon-2018-metal-detectors-for-all-entrances

Help for your alts is coming in 8.1
As announced during the latest Q&A, Blizzard has added new scouting maps to the game, with the objective to open all flight paths for alts or secondary characters that haven’t leveled questing on the Battle for Azeroth zones. There are two separate items: 7th Legion Scouting Mapand Honorbound Scouting Map.

The Great Diablo Letdown. Not ready to spill the beans about what new Diablo title is coming out. This is like having the ground hog come out and still seeing its shadow. What are they actually going to show at Blizzcon? WoW – Classic, Diablo – Maybe just the switch, Hearthstone – more cards? Overwatch – New character or map? Heroes of the Storm – New character or map? That is about it that I can think of. The community is pissed and I saw many a post asking for their virtual ticket money back. It seems like fans feel betrayed.

Be nice or they might stop telling us things. After the fallout from the last Q&A session I don’t blame wow if they never want to talk to the community again.
