The central question of this post may seem on the surface to be kind of silly, but it isn't -- because every game is different, and so is every person who plays games.
In a recent interview with Preach, Ion Hazzikostas, the Game Director on World of Warcraft, talked about Borrowed Power systems like Azerite Armor, Covenant Powers, and Artifacts that have been a big part of World of Warcraft's last three expansions.
Pro players, top guilds, world champions, world-first raiders -- many of us follow their feats religiously.
Okay, so maybe I'm weird, but I'm at the point where playing video games has replaced watching TV for the most part.
I find myself having a much harder time getting my alts to max level in Shadowlands than I did in Battle for Azeroth, but I know some people have multiple alts to 60 and in full Covenant gear, and I'm a trifle impressed.
The first time I played World of Warcraft, I hated it.
In patch 9.1, we're going to go into Korthia, a lost realm that the Jailer seeks for reasons we don't currently know.
The story of Titan is one that's probably pretty familiar to almost everyone in game development -- years of work on a game that ultimately didn't ship.
Heartstone has done some fun things with Warcraft lore over the years -- evil supervillains banding together, a big Draconic dust-up, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan -- and none of it is in World of Warcraft, which I think is a crying shame.
So right now I'm playing World of Warcraft on a reduced (but still daily) basis, mostly just on my one main, a Night Elf Warrior.
