Because I'm traveling at the end of the week, this year's Thanksgiving "feast" at my house will be frozen pizza and beer and whatever looks good when I'm wandering the aisles at the grocery.
Maybe it's just because World of Warcraft is a 14-year-old game and Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm are much newer, but it feels like WoW could definitely learn a few things from its younger siblings when it comes to in-game holiday events.
Hallow’s End has a wealth of lore behind it — and Blizzard should use that as the foundation of an overhaul to the holiday
In my opinion, Hallow's End has been a casualty of the increasing hostility between the Horde and the Alliance since Cataclysm. In particular, the holiday suffers from two problems -- a tendency toward stagnation and a removal of its in-game cultural significance that renders it effectively meaningless.
So Hallow's End is done but you still crave some macabre goodness.
There's a tradition of sorts with holidays in World of Warcraft.
So it's Brewfest.
That's right: Love is about to fall out of the air and, I presume, go back to wherever it usually is.
In my family, it's a holiday tradition to get together on Boxing Day. We get comfy, preferably in some new jammies, eat a few different warm soups, and play with all the cool loot Santa gave us. This year, it seems like a good time to share all the holiday traditions, new and old, Blizzard brought to us this holiday season.
In my experience playing WoW really suffers over the holidays.
