More Warcraft Stuff and some Personal stuff too

I’m sure not everyone wants to hear about my personal life and/or whatever, so I’ll be putting that at the latter end of this entry.

I went raiding again with Raids without Pants, and I think I really am enjoying raiding… well, with these guys anyway. Especially more so when on Mumble and I can hear majority of the guild chatting along telling stories during downtime. This wasn’t something I could have done when I was with on my old ISP, a stupid little webdongle thing (a USB mobile modem thing) which gave me constant lag and was insanely frustrating when it got all PMSy. I couldn’t even speak on Vent or Mumble due to said lag as it would distort and  constantly cut off my own voice.  Continue reading

The 11th Fantasy and Another World

The summer sale with Steam had gone by and I had ended up basically falling with my female instincts of “Oh god its on sale!“… and went shopping. There hardly was a day that I didn’t get something and now that I have “proper” internet, I can download more than I was able to previously. As we say in the Philippines, “Delikado ito…”

Story Creation and Roleplaying

Some people might have noticed that there’s another link to the side, underneath “Other Places of Interest” called “Roleplaying Stories”.

This is actually a side site I set up to post and keep my roleplay prose for the characters I have on both Wyrmrest Accord and Steamwheedle Cartel.

I am only really able to write short chapters intermittently at the moment, as I don’t really have all that much time to myself unfortunately. I give it little bits here and there, but there are stories I do want to share. Continue reading

Cataclysm

In 2001, Blizzard Entertainment announced that they were developing an MMORPG called World of Warcraft.

When the trailer for the game was released at E3, the developers were faced with stiff competition from Star Wars Galaxies. They were saying to themselves that they would be happy to get even 10,000 monthly subscribers, when one of their number yelled out, “F THIS! We’re getting a MILLION subscribers!” A chortle softly rang in the circle as they tried to swallow their nervousness against a juggernaut franchise like Star Wars.

“Who are we kidding?” They thought. “Who can beat Star Wars?

2004, World of Warcraft was released.

A week later, the servers crash due to too many players logging in.

2010, their active subscription player base is a staggering 13 Million. Millions anticipating the launch of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, their 3rd Expansion following Burning Crusade, and Wrath of the Lich King.

The Cataclysm servers have been up for over an hour as of writing, and here I am gazing lovingly at the Cataclysm Collectors Edition.

I can’t wait to open it.

No, the plushies don’t come with the collectors edition. :[
