The Queue: Let’s Queue this thing

I asked for questions over on Twitter yesterday evening, hoping that I’d get a couple, turn in The Queue early, and get to bed. Of course, dozens of people then had questions so I’m sitting here typing and researching frantically with 20 minutes until the deadline. Just another day behind the scenes at Blizzard Watch. Hey, maybe I will have something to say in that $10 Patreon tier Behind The Scenes Podcast I’m supposed to be hosting. Huh.

The Queue: Endless waiting edition

Did you ever wait for something for so long, the waiting made it so whatever you were waiting for couldn’t possibly measure up? The anticipation was almost better, almost more fun, than the thing you ultimately ended up with? Where — even if you weren’t excited to begin with — the period you spent waiting meant you just built up the experience in your head so that the reality ended up falling flat?

Just asking for a friend.

The Queue: A Very Classic Queuemas

Welcome to The Queue, our daily column where you ask us Qs and we make somebody on staff supply the As. Unsurprisingly, with less than a week to go a vast majority of y’all are talking about WoW Classic. It reminds me a little of those one-off Christmas episodes of sitcoms, where it’s pretty much the same old wacky antics only this time the industrial wood chipper Urkel made sentient and is running amok has a bow on it. So basically, Winter Veil in Orgrimmar.

The Queue: Total Namehem

While some of you were securing your names for WoW Classic, I was making plans. This was mostly because I was trying to pass the time while I was waiting in the queue to log in, but that’s beside the point. The point is, I was able to con Mitch into teaching me how to play Fortnite, and we’re going to do it on the Blizzard Watch Twitch channel this Wednesday in my usual 9 p.m. CST time slot.

I only installed the game so far. Don’t rush me. I’m sure it’s going to go really well. Let’s A some Qs!
