Breakfast Topic

What does patch 7.3.2 mean for the future? Note: This post won’t require you to read any spoilers, but if you know them, it’ll be helpful for you. The end of Antorus brings an end to a storyline that’s been ongoing since the original RTS games. And the end of that storyline means that we’re looking at a Warcraft universe that’s nothing like it’s been...

I keep rerolling that Troll Druid just because Troll cat form is the best thing ever I love just running around Orgrimmar as a colorful striped cat.




How bad is player toxicity now? I have my own opinion on player toxicity — it’s gotten bad enough that I don’t even do LFR anymore and rarely do five-player content. Even then, it’s mostly late at night or when I have four friends on who want to rock some dungeons — but I’m curious what others think. Do games like Heroes...

Do you prefer new Heroes or new skins? Heroes of the Storm just debuted a D.Va with a Deathwing skin and a lot of people are going nuts for it. But at the same time, others are pointing out that this makes it a lot less likely we’ll actually get a Deathwing playable hero any time soon, much as how Nova’s Widowmaker skin...

Do you like the Netherlight Crucible? This week saw the last piece of the Shadows of Argus story quests, which concluded with the unlocking of the Netherlight Crucible. Now you can… reforge your Relics? Did anybody want this? I know that was snarky. And there are cool things about the Netherlight Crucible. It does serve to make RNG less awful. But it does...

What are the addons you just can’t live without? I don’t consider myself someone that has a lot of addons. My screen isn’t littered with helpful pointers every time I enter combat. But a recent look at my addon list revealed I’ve got over 50 of the things installed — which is definitely a lot, no matter which way you look at it. Sure,...




Do you wish Shadows of Argus had more story quests? By now, players are unlocking the Netherlight Crucible, the Seat of the Triumvirate 5-player dungeon, and otherwise finishing up with the Shadows of Argus storyline. And I’m not arguing that the story for the patch is bad by any means… But I am curious as to whether or not it’s enough. Are you satisfied with the...

How do you feel about game community? Back around Wrath of the Lich King, the server I was on (Norgannon) had a very particular community. Now, it was a terrible community, in my opinion — guilds sniping at each other, the top two constantly engaging in crap-talk on the forums despite the guild leadership forbidding it, and everyone else on the forums either waiting for...



Do you like Blizzard’s ‘mystery’ content? The Riddle of the Mind-Seekers was one of the most interesting bits of new content World of Warcraft has seen in a while — a scavenger hunt across all of Azeroth. And as cool as it was, it seems like the Lucid Nightmare mount trumps it in terms of what it asks you as a player...

Do we need another Vashj’ir? Note, I don’t specifically mean “Do we need another Vashj’ir” as in, do we need another underwater zone that was way too long. Rather, do we need another zone that really plays around with the concept of what a leveling zone is? Do we need a zone that experiments? One that takes basic ideas and...

🔒 Invasion Points: Previewing future expansions? When Blizzard announced we were going to Argus, I couldn’t help but wonder what’s next. Normally new planets and gathering systems are reserved for new expansions. In confronting the Burning Legion head-on, we’re nearing the end of the Titan storyline, which opens up new stories. Obviously N’zoth is a threat we haven’t dealt with, and...

What sort of randomly generated content should WoW have in the future? One of the features of the recent Lucid Nightmare mount hunt I missed during my first go-through was the way the Endless Halls worked. I mean, obviously I saw how it was working on a surface level — make players go in random directions enough until they become as mad as the Old Gods that...

Patch 7.3 Invasion Points and You: Enjoyable or death-traps? Tuesday’s continuation of the Argus storyline also brought us new Invasion Points. Instead of the Legion invading our world where we have to race to fight them back, we find portals where the Legion is invading other worlds and we must go oust them. The Invasion Points work relatively the same way the pre-Legion invasions...

🔒 Patch 7.3 and the Return to WoW I admit I’ve been on a WoW break this summer. Don’t get me wrong, Legion has been one of the strongest expansions of the game in my opinion. Suramar alone was a masterpiece in terms of detail, immersion, and storytelling. But after I settled into the LFR grind and the alt grind and the World...

Are you participating in the Call of Kel’Thuzad event? Things in Heroes of the Storm just got a little more interesting. There’s a tinge of iciness in the air of the Nexus — a feeling that marks the arrival of the much-anticipated hero, Kel’Thuzad. In proper style, Blizzard didn’t just release Kel’Thuzad and call it a day, however — there’s been fanfare both in...

How do you decide which game to play? You really love Overwatch but patch 7.3 just dropped — how do you choose which one gets your time? Is it by which game has more friends wanting to play it with you? Do you have raid commitments or a steady crew mowing down Reaper? My wife and I spent the last two months playing Seasonal...
