The Queue

The Queue: Oh no, it’s Friday

Time has been very weird lately, and I just don’t seem to be able to keep up. Somehow it’s once again time to write the Queue, even though it feels like I only just wrote it yesterday. The day before, max. How am I supposed to keep up with all of these days, anyway?

But before I get lost in the intricacies of time, let’s answer some questions.

The Queue: Snow, snow, snow

Hello, Watchers, and happy frozen Wednesday!

I’m sure it’s not frozen for all of you — frankly, I’d be very concerned if it were — but here in the midwest, we’re getting a lot of snow. Like, a lot a lot. If history is any indication, it’ll either be gone by Friday or it won’t melt until like April.

Anyhow, this is The Queue, and unlike outside, it’s hopefully not too cold and unpleasant.

The Queue: what’s the big deal?

While I understand being a little excited for new stuff, we get Patches all the time. At this point it’s kind of ho hum, isn’t it? I mean, unless you highroll early and can race to tier five to grab Hogger ASAP. Even with the nerf to Murlocs, highroll stat builds tend to get outpaced by– oh, it’s not that game? oh. okay.

This is The Queue, where you ask us questions and we can definitely tell you the correct answer for the right franchise.

The Queue: This is actually fine

Hey, we did it! Then we did it again! My guild has taken its first slightly shaky steps into the Mythic Vault of the Incarnates. Managing to one-shot Mythic Eggnog right as we walked in, and then spending the rest of the night getting beat up by the Primal Council. Who are basically the same fight as they are on Heroic, but all of the usual everything hurts more does, y’know, hurt more. We had one really close wipe with two of the council dead, and the other two at 1-2% health left each, and then we spent the next forty minutes trying to recreate that for our kill.

But we did it! Now we’re 2/8 Mythic and the top guild on the server cluster! I’m not sure who our third target will be, likely Terros, but I’m already not looking forward to that one. Too many rocks.

While I work on sharpening my claws to cut through rock, it’s time for — The Queue!

The Queue: My eyes are made of fire

I’m writing this less than 24 hours after my eye injections, and while they were much less painful than they usually are — admittedly, I did kind of say just hit me with all the freezing drops you have and the very nice nurse proceeded to treat my eyes like the freezing agent was parmesan and we were at an Olive Garden — I am now experiencing what I call the Itchpocalypse.


The Queue: Overwhelm Overwhelming

There is so much happening today. Hearthstone Battlegrounds season change, WoW Classic phase change, Overwatch 2 holiday change, maybe even a WoW holiday await today. It’s a whole lot. To the extent that I wonder if they like, talk to each other? Maybe one team should try putting things out on, oh, I don’t know, a Thursday or something?

This is The Queue, where you ask us questions and we’ll answer when we get two seconds to freakin breathe.

The Queue: This is fine

Gentle readers, I dearly wanted this to be a triumphant picture of a bear next to a downed Eranog. However Mythic difficulty proved to be a bit out of our reach the first night we attempted it. I’m sure that the next time we go in we’ll be able to break the line of elementals that spelled our doom but tonight was not that night…

While I try and find more gear with fire resist on it, it’s time for — the Queue.
