The Queue: Summer Football Done Quick
Happy Queuesday! How about that World Cup? How about that SGDQ? How about having no time to watch everything? D:
Q4tQ: what are the active and passive racials of Mitch?
- Nap: Activate to go into a midday slumber.
- Millennial: Instantly kill the target. Cooldown reduced to 1 day if used on Applebee’s (10-Day cooldown).
- Charismatic: +10 to Charisma.
- Moist: You tend to sweat much more easily than other people.
- Awkward: All joke casts have a 15% increased chance to miss. Sometimes people just don’t get them.
- Totally healthy: +10 to alcohol tolerance.
Q4TQ (Splatoon Edition): So your splatoon toon starts out with paint ammo. To refill, you go down into already splatted paint (of your color) and then I guess absorb it. Shouldn’t the paint be getting thinner each time this is done? I feel like the physics of the paint are being ignored here.
Dang, man, did you not realize that YOU’RE A SQUID YOU’RE A KID YOU’RE A SQUID… Ahem. You’re a squid, so you’re shooting ink, not paint. So you hop back into your own ink, then spray your own ink in it to keep it from going completely dry, then uh.. put the ink into your gun?
Okay, maybe just don’t overthink this.
Q4tQ: If I buy a race change on a character during the sale… can I hold off on using it until Kul Turans are available? Need a Kul Turan Druid in my life.
Yes, you can. Just be aware, Kul Tirans won’t be unlocked at Battle for Azeroth’s launch —
you still need to complete the War Campaign for the Alliance.
Sorry, War Campaign is for Dark Iron Dwarves. We don’t know how Kul Tiran Humans will be unlocked just yet (though I suspect it involves questing for them).
Q4tq: if Blizzard can make me like Illidan whom I’d despised since BC, which is when I started to play, can they create a storyline that would make me not hate his creaky, cranky brother?
Nope. Malfurion’s the worst.
Queue Challenge: Say something nice (for real nice not sarcastic nice or snarky nice) about your least favorite WoW expansion!
I’ll start: Cataclysm brought the stories being told via raids into my field of view with LFR.
Warlords of Draenor gave us flexible raid sizes, which is a huge boon to pretty much all raiders. I also phoned Liz to ask, and she wanted to give a shout-out to the storytelling, which seriously upped WoW’s story game. Especially thanks to the zone-end cinematics. There really hadn’t been anything like it before.
Name an expansion that you really thought you were going to hate, but at the end of the expansion you really liked… name what you expected to dread, and what made you change your mind.
I’ll start: I really just knew I would hate MoP, because it didn’t seem to have a plot besides “hey, look at the cute Kung Fu Panda RIP offs!”… I was fully flipped by the Island of Thunder, the lore behind the Mogu and the great plot of Garrosh and the sacking of Orgrimmar.
Honestly, I don’t know if I’ve ever gone into an expansion dreading it or thinking negatively about it on the whole. I will say, I’m incredibly sad about the way class direction is headed in Battle for Azeroth. Despite that, I’m still psyched for the rest of the expansion.
Maybe the closest thing to “I’m going to hate this” I’ve ever been was Cataclysm removing the Vanilla zones. But… I’m still upset we can’t have two versions of Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms, so I guess I didn’t really get over it.
So given how alliance is putting all their war efforts onto the west coast of the Eastern Kingdoms, how screwed would we be if we were suddenly assaulted from the east coast? There’s a whole ocean of unexplored territory to the east and the only coastal fort we have there is in the Twilight Highlands.
Thanks for the idea, Archmage. The Dark Lady will make sure you die quickly.
Q4tQ: Do you think Gilneas would (or should) become an functioning Alliance City, ala Stormwind, or Ironforge?
2BE: Malthael vs The Old Gods
Yes, absolutely it should. Especially if the Alliance are going to regain a foothold in Lordaeron, it would make sense to try to retake Gilneas and make it a base of operations.
Really? Really, Mistah Jay? The Old Gods. What did you expect me to say?
That’s today’s Queue!
I have a really important assignment for all of you, though. In at least one of your comments, I want you to ask Liz if she’s a squid or a kid — or just tell her YOU’RE A SQUID, YOU’RE A KID in your most meme-ish way possible. Mitch smiles upon you <3
