WTF Blizzcon Weekend?

This year is the first year that Chawa and I have purchased the Blizzcon live stream, which airs tomorrow and Saturday.

As such, we’ve made some plans around it:   Take Friday off, do some chores in the morning, watch stream, eat chips, etc.  Saturday, hang out with Vidyala and Vosskah and watch the Con with them.  Some fun coupled with relaxation.  Good times!

Well, because I have plans for the weekend, people suddenly decided they wanted to invite me to things.  I turned down a round of golf for tomorrow because I have plans.  I turned down box seats for a Calgary Flames game on Saturday because I have plans.

I look forward to those plans…but did golf and box seats have to be THIS WEEKEND?!?!  *shakes fist into the air*

I know ultimatums are kind of silly, but Blizz…hear me now…this Blizzcon better be freakin’ amazing.

PS:  You may want to check out the book, “The Patrol“.

Musical Interlude

I’ve been working on a lengthy post.

It’s been hard to write, as the process has been full of interruptions. Mostly my own fault for doing the majority of my ramblings during my lunch hour at work. I know, I know…how silly of me to let my job get in the way of my posts. But it’s just about ready, probably after a few tweaks.

Anyway, I would have posted it this weekend. But it’s on my work computer. Teeheehee…whoops!

So, instead of me rambling, you get a music video from an artist I’ve been really enjoying since I played Red Dead Redemption. Those who have played probably know who I’m talking about.

That’s right: Jose Gonzalez. And this is a cover of a Massive Attack song.

Side note: While writing this I also managed to tame Gondria on my hunter. Yay me!

Time for coffee.

Edit:  Fortunately, Psynister is willing to do some research for me (I’m scared of the forums, and even so, I can’t check them from work).  Turns out the following rant is based on a bug, and it has subsequently been fixed.  Bliz isn’t trying to keep the Small Guilds down, after all.

Now I need to find something else to make me angry…

*waits for phone to ring as I’m about to leave work*

Guild Leveling!  One of the latest and greatest features released with WoW: Cataclysm! 

And I’m pretty sure that it’s seen as a positive change, all around.  I know I like it – mostly.

For a pretty good summary and some numbers, check out Psynister’s Notebook.

As you can see, there are a lot of worthwhile perks for being in a “max level” guild.  But as a means of reducing “guild-hopping”, Guild Reputation was another feature added.  As yet another means of reducing “guild-hopping”, Blizzard implemented a cap on the amount of guild reputation you can earn in a week.  It makes sense to me, and it should make both players and guilds more particular with their rosters. 

In an effort to further keep balance, a daily cap on Guild Experience was set at 6.246 million XP.  This is to prevent large guilds from leveling up too easily and to prevent small guilds from being left behind in the dust.  Everything seems fair… until you dig a little deeper.

How they made the reputation cap function has totally shafted smaller guilds.

Here, lemme ‘splain…

The Lich King cast Defile on the same character that was getting carried by a Valkyr.

Honestly, is that some sort of sick joke?!
