Zaronis: Doesn't anyone else have a problem with enslaving a sentient creature to fight to the death for your own amusement?
Zapwidget: I only fight till they pass out.
Ah, December. Tons of holiday-related silliness, and (for some reason) a lot of point-counterpoint a...

AiunTanks: I spent all my time in Pandaria looking for a way to murder Anduin Wrynn.
Kennyj116: He becomes "more powerful than you could ever imagine."
AiunTanks: And run the risk of him becoming as useful as Obi-wan was in the movies? I think I'll take that chance.
November was possi...

dngreene: Man, when Blizzard wants to get players out into the world, they get players out into the world ... or else.
atanae: Meanwhile, four stalwart players who have no lives are killing boars ...
shrikesnest: Yes, WoW got hacked, and that sucks. I wish it didn't happen. But I can at...

Mists of Pandaria was released on the 25th, and everything about September is just an embarrassment of riches. Once again, opinions and editorials suffered a little bit as we turned our attention to other stuff, but this is easily among the most action-packed months I've ever had to summarize.

MusedMoose: I stood in fire. / Everyone stood in fire. / It's an achievement.
TristanLeonard: No one remembers / Yor'sahj's name in my guild. / We call him "Skittles."
JeffLaBowski: Thank you, Olivia. / Now I'm counting all my words. / I ran out of beer.
metaphyzxx: I'm glad to be done...

Nathanyel Warcraft: Moon Guard. Would rake in way more cash than that other Warcraft-inspired movie ...
Beta. Beta. Beta. And, weirdly enough, a lot of really good observational pieces on a very diverse set of subjects.
Also, Olivia largely spent this month giving us no excuse whatsoever f...

bengeibe: As a fan of metal, I can't fathom what could possibly be offputting about the imagery in this video. All I see is pure awesome.
AleisterHyde: As not a fan of metal, my ears hurt.
Another busy, busy month. June 2012 was equal parts restrospective work on what Cataclysm had brough...

May saw Diablo 3's release on the 15th, the Avengers, a sudden exodus of staffers from their posts, and another avalanche of Mists of Pandaria beta news as the editors dragged people back with a slew of threats and bribes.
The female pandaren dance was also revealed to be the Caramelldansen. Ale...

bim.shield.spec Cross-faction romance! They are star-crossed lovers, for certain ... Oh wait, never mind. Method is faction-changing to Horde.
Beta, beta, and more beta ... and for some reason, an awful lot of completely random stuff this month. Seriously, there's no rhyme or reason to the...

Ellyndia: Whenever I need to do something that might be scary or a little intimidating, I take a deep breath, close my eyes, and say to myself: "Time's up, let's do this." I have gotten a job using this method.
jazz.panther: My success with that method is only about 33.33% ... repeating of...

Matt Rossi: I'm starting to think Neltharion was the tank for the dragon aspects' regular 5-man group.
After a few times around the block, the general "feel" of months like February 2012 becomes pretty familiar. The combination of aging raid content, an approaching expansion, and a lot of s...

Marthazon: World of Warcraft is sort of like the French Foreign Legion of games when it comes to age. As long as you can do your part, it's rare for someone to ask "How old are you?"
For anyone out there who's new to the site, at the end of every year we run a retrospective series examining...
