The Queue: Life in space is impossible

Michael Sacco

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Mike Sacco will be your host today.

I saw Gravity last night and it was really good. I feel like the concept of space as deadly, lonely, and horrible has been ground to a nub by scifi movies, but Gravity actually made space scary again, simply by presenting space as the enemy and not something that lives there. Also, it really can't be beat for pure visual spectacle. I have no idea how this movie was filmed.

arixian697 asked:

This may be a really dumb noob question but I've been wondering. If I have two pieces of SoO tier gear drop in LFR and two different pieces of SoO tier gear drop in Flex will I unlock the 4-piece set bonus or just the 2-piece?

Bonuses can be unlocked across difficulty levels. As long as there are four different pieces, you'll unlock the 4-piece bonus. So if you have the gloves and helm from LFR but the head and shoulders from Flex, congrats on your 4-piece.

WrecklessMEDIC asked:

With Blizzcon only 34 days away, is this the longest we've ever gone without knowing anything about the next expansion?

I'm sure some people outside Blizzard now, but it is a bit surprising that nothing has gotten out to the public at large yet.

itsdeeps asked:

I haven't seen anything specifically stating it, but I was wondering if anyone knows if the "on demand" feature of the Blizzcon virtual ticket applies to direct tv only or is it online as well? I don't have direct tv and I work weekends so if I can't watch it online on demand I'm not gunna bother spending the money

Yep, you'll be able to watch the recorded Main and Panel Stage streams, as well as eSports events, on demand for two weeks after the convention.

Therazorx asked:

When did WowInsider turn into HearthstoneInsider?

I know, I know, i'm being a jerk, mean....etc
Hearthstone is related to wow...blah blah blah.

But still, I don't understand why at least 1/4 of the posts/questions/features are about Hearthstone now. There weren't that many posts for TCG

Hearthstone is big right now and there's a bit of a lull information-wise for WoW between now and BlizzCon. It makes sense to write about something that people are currently enjoying or anticipating and that has new information regularly available. You'll recall we wrote a bit about Diablo 3, too, when that launched and there was a bit of a WoW lull.

Also, for real, people really want to read about Hearthstone. I think it's okay to devote sub-10% of our site to it while it's still hot.
