Ask Gauss

Sunday is here the last day of the long weekend here in Canada. In the US though I guess you would have the reverse long weekend that we had. Regardless of that useless type chat today being Sunday means it is time for Ask Gauss. You know the post of the week where I answer a few questions I was sent throughout the week. So let's just get to it.

What is your opinion of what Stars did?

For those that don't know this is what they did curtosy mmo chammpion

"A lot of guilds killed all the bosses of the Firelands raid in normal mode already but it seems that Stars (TW - Crystalpine Stinger) decided to take it one step further.After clearing the encounters in normal mode, the entire raid changed faction to reset their raid ID and started working on heroic encounters shortly after, that kind of thing happened in the past and it's not really surprising to see it used again to grab first kills."

Now Blizzard has known for awhile that server transfers and faction changes reset raid IDs. So they know this has always been possible. They have also done nothing to stop it. Now maybe they thought guilds were never that serious that on the first week of killing content they would faction change the entire guild just to get a world first kill. What you have to understand though is that these guilds play for that chance to get the world first kill. Now later Blizzard hotfixed to close Heroic Mode for the week, which they really should have done in the first place to stop this from happening. Now back to think if I am against what Stars did. Honestly, no they used what was capable of them in game and didn't break any rules that are in the game so all the power to them.

Were you expecting the ending of the Elemental Bonds questline?

Well I thought at first they were actually going to ignore that whole storyline because from the trailer it was almost as if that had already taken place without us knowing. Them putting it into the game though was a great thing by Blizzard. Really shows that they are all for showcasing the lore of the game in the way they should. The reason WoW has stood for so long is because the story that is involved with it. It is interesting and intriguing and it is what will keep people playing more so than anything else. Everyone wants to see how something ends and this is no different.

Who is going to be the next WoW couple to get married?

Hmm.. Interesing

So that is it for this week. Hope you all got the answers you were looking for or just accepted the answers I gave. Next week's Reader Post I want you to tell me how you think the next WoW couple to get married will be. As always you have until Thursday night to get those into me. Enjoy what is left of your weekend everyone

  1. I am not really in agreement with Stars actions. Sure Blizzard had this in place, but Stars should have known this was "not fair" really this is like paying to buy gear because you are effectively getting another week of raiding by paying $25
