The Queue: Cool guys don’t look at explosions

When Adam asked me to cover The Queue for this morning, even though I stream pretty late in the night for the site on Wednesday, and even though my toddler and I are both sick, and even though my daughter has short school days this week, I said I would. It’s usually not too tough to pull questions, even with the heated discussions going around lately — worst case, I’ll just pull stuff off our Discord or Twitter. I didn’t realize that literally as I was streaming, he would drop the post about the five year plan for the site the staff first started discussing internally 3 weeks ago.

Adam, please.

So! While I’ll definitely direct y’all’s attention over to that post, because it’s important to the site and we want to hear your thoughts and concerns, I’m definitely just… not looking at the explosion this morning. Nope. I have some herbal tea with honey, and I’m just gonna… do the thing. Please, for poor little Rossi’s sake, put some questions in a place where he can find them easily. Whew.

The Queue: The good old Monday faceplant

I can’t believe it took me this long to discover that stunning a giant snake causes it to do some kind of weird paralyzed plank. Sapping it is entertaining enough, but what’s even better is throwing a bunch of stuns in with your regular rotation — it’s like witnessing a round of armless pushups on fast forward. Odd serpentine antics aside, it’s Monday — which means we should probably get around to answering your questions!

The Queue is sad

I’m sad, you’re sad, we’re all sad together. I was really starting to wallow in it, so I went and ran an LFR.

That is not exactly what I would call a cure-all for negative emotions — after all, LFR is packed with its own special blend of negativity — but it had an unexpected cheering effect. The group wasn’t too bad, and for the most part I could tunnel-vision on health bars and fight mechanics and blissfully not think about anything else for a while.

It was nice.

But now we’re back here in the Queue, and I’m still feeling pretty sad.

The Queue: Waffles > pancakes

This month’s Splatfest was all about those two classic, syrupy breakfast foods: Pancakes and waffles. At first, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to go with. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that, while I do have pancakes more often, it’s hard to actually beat the shape, crunch, and overall fun waffles provide. Looks like I chose wisely, too — waffles won in all three categories, which (AFAIK) hasn’t happened in quite some time.

Enough about syrups and inks, though — let’s Queue.

The Queue: Winter skies

How much time have you spent looking up? I’m continually baffled by just how amazing the skies are in Battle for Azeroth. This shot taken in the wintry area of Drustvar looks almost identical to the skies out here on a snowy day. Basically, clouds are great, hats off to the environmental design crew at Blizzard, and let’s get to your questions!
