Ask Gauss

Sunday, Sunday Sunday! Yes it is Sunday if you didn't know. The day of the week that you realized that you wasted your weekend with nothing of purpose and you have to go back to work tomorrow. Also Sunday is the day where I get to answer a whole bunch of questions for some reason people would like me to answer.

One week of heroic being available and guilds are already at Ragnaros, is this a good thing?

Well first off we have to remember the guilds where this is the case are professional gamers. They spend their time trying and focusing to get this done. They have done the normal mode countless times on the PTR and have been developing strategies on the heroic modes for months. I think this blue post sums it up best

"I am endlessly intrigued to find players judging the difficulty of the encounters and how long lived the content is by how pro players, some of the most skilled and focused players in the world, engage the content. It's a little like judging the difficulty of juggling eight chainsaws by what the best jugglers in the world can accomplish. Sure, it might be easy for them, but when was the last time you tried it?"

So yes the professionals can get through it quickly, but that doesn't mean for a second the content itself is easy for the everyday gamer which is not part of the 0.1% of WoWs raiding population. Just remember that.

Blizzard admitted they were wrong with the PvP gear thing is this a sign of things to come?

Of all the things Blizzard has gone back on that I have argued against them doing I am glad they are fixing this. Why you may ask? Well it is simple this was a true mistake. This wasn't about them trying to get the community to earn something that should be earned or do something else to maintain a same rank or title this is about them making a mistake realizing it and fixing it. So in this case I applaud Blizzard for doing the right thing and not doing what a lot of people thought they were going to do and just give and apology.

What is your favourite Lore Moment is Warcraft?

Wow this is truly a question to think about. Maybe even make a post right to it.

There you have it. Thank you to everyone who sent in questions this week I was glad as always to answer them. Next week's Reader Post is going to be your favourite Lore moment in Warcraft, I will do my take on the topic this week as well so there is a preview for a coming post.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  1. Completely agree with the fact of the pvp gear they made a mistake and owned up to it. And I assume someone probably got fired.
