Is Blizzard Out of Touch with their Subscribers?

What is Blizzard thinking?

It’s one of the questions I’ve been pondering now for the past few weeks. It’s a valid question to ask. Blizzard has lost almost 1 million subscribers since Cataclysm has launched. Multiply that by $15 per month (a rough guesstimate). That’s about 90 million lost in a 6 month period. 90 MILLION.

You can’t sit here and claim Blizzard isn’t panicking. That’s a lot money to lose in a 6-month period of time and it will only increase as time goes on.

So what’s causing this sudden drop of subscribers? Continue reading

World of Warcraft: A Disney Perspective

It all started with this simple tweet on Twitter.

Of course this is just me QQing about the current content not being interesting enough. Of course this caused Leetsauced to say this:

Which caused me to reply:

I won’t bore you with the rest. Let’s just say I went through almost the entire song by the time I got an idea for this blog post.

Essentially, I wanted to see if any classic Disney songs could be applied to any aspect of WoW, be it a race, faction, zone, event, or lore. And since I got the idea from Twitter, I decided to ask my followers for ideas. I got a lot of feedback (from one person in particular) and I went ahead and listed the ideas and songs that would match. Enjoy! Continue reading

Transmogrification: Vanilla and BC Tier Fashion for Priests

With the release of Patch 4.3, Blizzard has introduced a unique feature: Transmogrification.

From Blizzard: “The Ethereals, emerging from the nether, will bring with them a new technology they call Transmogrification. They’re heading to the capital cities of Azeroth to set up shop and to offer adventurers a unique service — copying the appearance of one magical item onto another. They only ask for a modest gold donation to recoup their costs.”

No words can describe how awesome this feature is. But there is a catch. Currently, it seems you would need to obtain the original piece of gear for you to use the graphic on your current loot. Priests have had some REALLY GOOD sets, and some kinda ugly ones. Lets take a look at each one. Continue reading

Patch 4.3 Wish List for Healers

With the release of Patch 4.2.2 on the PTR it’s safe to assume that we will be seeing Patch 4.3 on the PTR within the next few weeks. Blizzard has gone ahead to state that 4.3 will be the LARGEST content patch for the Cataclysm expansion.

So, with Patch 4.3 upon us I decided to turn to the healing community and see what they would like to see changed/tweaked about their healing class or spec. And what better way than Twitter? Continue reading

A Change of Pace

As you may have already noticed, things are looking a bit different around here. I took some time yesterday to overhaul a few pictures including my banner to reflect a recent change that has taken place: I changed my main raider to my Druid.

Before we start assuming things, let me make one thing clear: I still love my Priest. Ever since BC, the Priest class has been my favorite class in WoW. I enjoyed spamming Flash Heal, Power Word: Shield, and Renew in Wrath. Even now in Cataclysm, I enjoy the Priest’s way of healing over any other healer.

So why did I switch to playing a Druid? Continue reading
