Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft.
Between the video above, and the one after the break, I'm sure you'll all want to join me in my kitchen as we cut some onions.
Yeah ... onions. That's why ... I'm ... sigh.
Why does it make sense that the looking for group channel is only available in cities? Wouldn't people want to look for raids while they are questing or farming? Maybe if the channel was available outside cities, it would actually get used, instead of trade being used to look for groups.
Blizzard has said before that it doesn't want LFG to be a global channel. If it did become a global channel, it'd be used for even more off-topic discussion amongst everyone on the server (or so Blizzard reckons, and I tend to agree here).
The channel did exist like this for a time, and it wasn't a pretty place. It was as if 4chan invaded WoW.
Do WoW Insider writers have other jobs than WoW Insider?
The majority of writers have other gigs in addition to WoW Insider. Some of us have a couple of editorial positions here and elsewhere, etc. ... Speaking only for myself, I work here, at a place called Tecca, and on a super-secret project I'm not going to talk about yet.
Has Blizzard ever held any sort of item creating contest before?
Nope, but that's a good idea. Here's hoping someone over at big blue reads this and thinks it's a good idea, too.
