Have you /hugged your guild today?

The other day I was thinking back to the time when I first started playing World of Warcraft.  The Dire Maul patch (1.3) had just been released and everyone was abuzz about what this new exciting instance had to offer.  The funny thing is it’s hard for me to remember specifics about what else the patch actually contained.  As I slowly move forward through my memories of all the various changes that have happened in the game, I’ve found thatwhenever I can remember something specific, it is because of how it affected someone in my guild at the time.

Sure I like “dags.” I like caravans more.

Why is it harder to crumble a sheet of paper than destroying a Glaive? Is the Brewmastery profession on its way?? Are players more efficient when sober or gay!? Why am I, inadvertently, rhyming!!? Will Pandaria ever be founded in Azeroth!?! You can hit conquest cap without doing rated BGs!?!? All this and more on this “Blogisode” of Stable Talk!!! Read more…

Bartol would like to dedicate this pic to all gnomes being punted. We will have our revenge!

As I mentioned last week I have disappeared from the WOW community and the World itself. If you read my last post you would know I have a lot of things going on….or HAD a lot going on.

The Bulls epic collapse was painful to watch. I cannot even put it into words, a common issue I have, and about how I felt about the last 4 times I saw my beloved Bulls take the court. I know they have a bright future ahead of them, but I have been through a lot of Sports pain this year and this Team was supposed to be different. If the Cannucks and Heat both end up winning it all (and they are in the finals playing the best they have all year), all of my Chicago sports teams would have been knocked out of the playoffs by the eventual champion. (Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks). Moral of the story, TV just got about 100% less interesting to me. Read more…

I’m Good at Sports!

In my gaming world DOTA (Defense of the Ancients) has made a roaring comeback. For those of you who do not know what DOTA is it is a custom Warcraft 3 game that is largely popular and the play-style has been copied by games like HON (Heroes of Newerth) and League of Legends. Normally me and 4 other of my closest compadres talk & game over vent; it is an all around good-ole time whenever we are not raiding. Like most video games the reward comes from having a winning team and a losing team clearly defined when it is over. The result is derived from direct head to head competition and it can be very entertaining and exciting. Basically DOTA is an E-sport, something that is missing from World of Warcraft’s PVE environment. Read more…

Well it finally happened, after the long drawn out process of applying, interviewing and crying I am no longer on the job market I finally landed a great job. (Sorry blizzard you can remove me from consideration for all of your open positions.) I am so stoked you have no idea (and probably don’t care), but the good news for you is no longer will you see me open my blog posts with obsessive whining about being poor. I will finally join the ranks of the “normal” people in the world when it comes to occupation (not personality). Read more…
