World of Warcraft and minigame micromanagement

I'm on record, when we saw the introduction of pet battles, as saying 'Well, this isn't content I care about, but it's good for people who like it' because pet battles are utterly optional. The various rewards you get for pet battles only affect the pet battle minigame itself - stones and other rewards that affect the pets and how they level. There's never a reason to play pet battles if you don't enjoy the gameplay - you're never forced to do it, nor do you even feel forced to. I can say this having utterly ignored pet battles since their introduction.

Welcome back to The Queue! Adam Holisky is stepping away from Queue duties to focus on the important job of making the site go, so I will be your host on Thursdays moving forward, while Matthew Rossi will be taking over on Tuesdays.

Now, let’s get to the questions!
