Tonight we celebrate Cinco de Mayo, Ceraphus bday, discuss Superman nearly missing his chance due to Warcraft, What Team Death Match would be like as a Battleground, How the WoW Talent System is holding up and the status of a prominent Warcraft raiding guild. Also a ton of discussion on listeners’ favorite beverage while gaming.

Superman Who Almost Wasn’t Because of Warcraft
Warcraft – Death Match type PVP being Discussed
Battle grounds have always been missing an important part of world pvp…. PvP. Make it like a big arena but not so big that people can’t hide. 10 to 15 players forced into all out pvp. First to so many kills or 10 minutes, whichever comes first, wins the round.
No need to even create an area for it. Just make a copy of Blackrock mountain in an instance.
What you’re asking for is a straight Death Match type of Battleground. I’m not sure it would be compelling as you think. I’m a big fan of DM as well, at least in FPS’, but for an MMO like World of Warcraft, I question how enjoyable it would be in the long run for people. I think for players who feel very comfortable with their abilities, straight head on PvP like that would be fun for them, but for others, I’m not sure it would have the same appeal.
That said, I’m not killing the discussion. I’m just interested in how you feel this would work or appeal to a wide enough audience for it to be worth creating.
Ghostcrawler agrees the new talent system while good, not rewarding during leveling
Exodus (formerly vodka) – hardcore raiding guild is done
Why? How? Well this game isn’t to blame. In the last few years this game (despite many people quitting and guilds dying) isn’t to blame for vodka/Exodus’ demise it’s the raiding community.
the “hardcore raider” is a dying breed and it’s certainly becoming a more difficult breed to be a part of.
Raiding for many many hours on end is fun, CAN be exciting, and at the end of it all can really prove who really wants that world first/us first/realm first the most. Unfortunately we (hardcore raiders) pushed too hard. Tier after tier we just keep adding to the insanity in both farming preparations and actual progressing. It’s almost as if progression itself never really ends after a end tier boss dies. Combine this with Blizzard actually putting new content out faster
