World of Blogcraft Is Moving – 12/20/2006

World of Blogcraft will be moving to another blog hosting service within the next few days. But don’t worry, all the posts will be transferred. This isn’t anything huge, but the main reason we are moving is so that I can embed movies and pictures into my posts easier. More info coming soon.

WoW: After The Crusade – 12/20/2006

January 16th, 2007… Ah, I just can’t wait. It’ll be lagfest ’07 in Blasted Lands – that is assuming the game will be up and running. But what happens after that? I don’t mean January 17th, I mean in the months after that; after we have seen everything that the Burning Crusade brings to the table. Well, Blizzard has come out and stated that their goal is to release one expansion a year. (You can find the post here.) By an expansion, they obviously mean new lands, new instances, new abilities, and possibly new races/classes. But what could those be? Well, we know that the Northrend expansion will come sometime, whether it is the next expansion or not, it IS coming. A trip to Northrend would mean a fight against the Lich King. Now, the following is all my opinion and none of it was confirmed – ever.

I believe that the Northrend expansion will indeed be the second expansion. My guess is that it is released sometime around the summer of 2008. The reason I say that the Northrend expansion will be coming “early” is because I believe that Blizzard will be losing players around this time next year (because of various new MMO’s – Age of Conan, Warhammer Online, etc.), and they will need to come out with something BIG. A Pandaria or Great Sea expansion will not bring retired players back, but the chance to face the Lich King on the other hand, will. At what level will we fight the Lich King? Well, my guess would be at level 85. I would also guess that we won’t see anymore races, but we will see 2 more classes. Now, I am going to take a huge guess here, but I think the name will be “World of Warcraft: Expedition to Northrend”.

P.S. – In 2008, Druids will be the Warlocks of today. :p

Premades Must End – 12/15/2006

So, I’ve been grinding in Arathi Basin for the past two days. I have managed about 85 marks of honor and 8-8.5k honor with my mediocre gear and my guilds premade groups. Once, we even managed a 2000 to 0 win in 6 minutes. Here lies the problem. The problem is that if I wasn’t in a premade group for those two days, I would probably be with 40-50 marks and 4k honor – if that. I am lucky to be in a fairly manageable PvP guild, but my friend, who played in PUGs all day won his BG games only a few times. As much as I am happy to have a good premade available whenever I want, I am against premades. This new honor system was made for casuals to get good gear, but it is a flawed system if they still are not able to obtain gear because their PUGs constantly lose to premades. That is just my opinion. What are your thought? E-mail me at or leave a comment on this post!!

I Own The Internet – 12/14/2006

It started out as a mere troll post mocking the other threads on “The Burning Crusade Cinematic Premiere”, but mine was the lucky one that blew up. Now, with over 570 posts, my thread is still going. Check it out!!

P.S. – Also, don’t forget to watch the new cinematic for the Burning Crusade!!

UPDATE: I believe the thread is now close to a record high. See, threads are usually closed automatically after 500 posts, but when Drysc (a WoW forum CM) saw the thread’s popularity, he decided to re-open it.

The Twelve Days Of Warcraft – 12/10/2006

WOOT!! A post!!

Here is my Warcraft version of “The Twelve Days Of Christmas”…

The Twelve Days Of Warcraft

On the twelfth day of Warcraft, Blizzard gave to me…

Twelve angry murlocs,
Eleven nagas swimming,
Ten priests renewing,
Nine ‘locks a-sharding,
Eight moonkin dancing,
Seven rogues ah gankin’,
Six night elves naked,
Five lazy peons…
Four calling nerfs,
Three ranging hunters,
Two exploding sheep,
and a pally in the retribution tree!

I just posted the last verse of the song so you could see all of it. It would be a bit annoying to post the song in its many parts.

Nagas Gave Me Harpies – 11/19/2006

Hey guys. It’s Punchline here. I guess I owe you an explanation as to what’s going on. Well, the Nagas gave me harpies… Just messin’!! Okay, well I have been really busy lately. I’d like to thank Attm for taking care of WoB (World of Blogcraft) for me while I was gone. Also, the reason he hasn’t posted in forever is because he was in the process of moving. As for me, I’ve been working on a new project called 3 Noobs Plus A Podcast (3N+P), which will be a gaming and tech podcast network coming early December. So, that’s about it. I will start posting regularly again within the next few days.

Thanks for understanding my situation.

P.S. – I was asked this question, “So, Punchline, are you back for good now?” My answer, “Yes, I am. Attm will not be posting anymore (unless he wants to). It’s just me again.”

The Burning Crusade: January 23rd, 2007 – 10/24/2006

Well, it’s true. The Burning Crusade is being “delayed” until the first month of the new year. Eyonix addressed the issue this morning via forum post.

Stated by Eyonix, “IRVINE, Calif. — Blizzard Entertainment® today announced that the release date for World of Warcraft®: The Burning Crusade™, the highly anticipated expansion for World of Warcraft, will be in January 2007. By adding a few extra weeks to the development cycle beyond its original target date, Blizzard will be able to extend the closed beta test and further refine the new content that will ship with the game.

“We appreciate the enthusiasm surrounding World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade, and we’re excited about putting the finishing touches on all of the new content,” said Mike Morhaime, president and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We feel confident that the extra time spent polishing the game will result in the high-quality experience that our players expect and deserve.”

Blizzard began the closed-beta phase of testing on World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade earlier this month. The January 2007 release window will allow extra time for current beta testers to participate in the final stages of development and continue providing valuable feedback.

Further information on specific worldwide release dates, pricing, and other details will be announced in the near future.”

In my opinion, this is both good and bad. Obviously, I am disappointed because I was looking forward to playing the expansion during the long holiday break in December. But, on the other hand we now have a stable release date (January 23rd, 2007), and I doubt we will have to worry about the expansion “not being ready”.

So, what will be happening to WoW from now until January? A new patch of course!! Some confusion floated around the forums earlier, but it is now all cleared up. There WILL be a new content patch before the expansion, but it WILL NOT be 1.13. On the forums, Tseric claimed it would most likely be named 2.0. This patch will include changes to the honor system, new talents, and new abilities. So, this patch is most likely coming in for the people that won’t be getting the expansion, but it’s also there so that people will be able to get acclimated to the new changes before the expansion airs. Wow. That was a lot of typing. =P

The Burning Crusade… Postponed? – 10/23/2006

Hello all!! Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days, I’ve been gone and it’s been a slow week.

I come back with some sad news. Sources say that The Burning Crusade will most likely be postponed until January 2007. Well, you can’t really call it a delay. I mean, Blizzard Entertainment never stated that it would be released around the holiday season. That was just the assumption by the community.

But, anyways… Vivendi’s Danish department stated the following, “no comment, a press release is due for tomorrow”. So, I guess we will be finding everything out tomorrow. Who knows? We might even get a strong hint, if not the actual date as to when the Burning Crusade is being released.
