Don't adjust your sets! Justin.tv's gaming section is now Twitch.tv; otherwise, the changes are minimal.Last week's adventures
Last week was a random battleground adventure, and with the queues so very short, we were able to enjoy quite a few with practically no non-PVP time. Things I learned:
- We can't queue with more than five people. Once upon a time, you could queue with a raid so as to make a premade. Then Blizzard made that stop in Alterac Valley, but you were still able to queue with more than five people for other BGs. At some point when I wasn't paying attention, Blizzard made it so that you can never queue for a BG with more than five people -- at least for all of the ones available at level 50. So no It came from the Blog premades for us. /sadface
- Battleground players never change. There will always be the Tokyo Roses and the HK (honorable kill) farmers and the exploiters and every other player-made obstacle to winning or at least enjoying a battleground. Actually, I didn't learn this last week -- just reaffirmed it.
- Thunderstorm is as much fun in the Eye of the Storm as it is at the Lumber Mill in Arathi Basin. Keep standing on the edge, Alliance.
I particularly am sad that there are still HK farmers, even with the Random Battleground feature. You can keep randoming your BGs over and over, getting large honor bonuses. So a quick turnover is to your benefit if you are trying to amass honor. That's why I don't understand the HK farming mentality -- unless it's being used as a justification for being a funsucker. Please explain with data if there is actually a valid reason for it. Even if you have the data, however, I'm still going to believe that following strategies to attempt to win battlegrounds will always be much more fun (for me and most of the participants) than hanging out in the middle killing people.
If you are really only in battlegrounds to kill other players, could you at least do so at the objectives? Please?My future adventures
Once I hit 55, I will not be questing until I reach 58. So say we all. I really wouldn't have minded Silithus, but I guess you all would mind watching me be there, and I can respect that. So the rotation will be PVP and dungeons during that time.
At 58, I will be forced to quest in Hellfire Peninsula. This leads me to believe you like hearing me whine -- also, that you are rather fond of the color orange. From 58 to 60, you'll have plenty of both. I'll put up polls for questing at 60 and beyond as we get closer.
Next week is a random dungeon, probably with the usual suspects. Until then, have fun!
