What We've Been Doing:
Finding what makes you happy in the game. Avoiding stress in real life, high anxiety disables everything for me including sleep. Watching Ash vs Evil Dead on Netflix, occasional in game death.
Being in a relationship with a survivor of sexual violence i can’t bring myself to even open my Blizzard App.
I’ve taken it off of Auto Start for the time being.
I have to just see, but more feel if / when the time is right to return to WoW.
Hearing all the horrible stories about the things that happened and about the people that acted shamefully, disgustingly shameful and so, oh so wrong, it breaks my heart.
For people that want to cancel the sub, as someone, and I can't remember who, said, it’s ok to do so, if you feel you need to do that to feel better.
On the other side, if you feel like you shouldn’t, for any reason, then continue to play.
The game is not at fault for the IRL things the people higher up did.
The community isn’t at fault.
I will always love the product, the IP, that is Warcraft.
I think I said last week that I would love nothing more than to have FF14 with the story from Warcraft be one game.
Think about the victims at Blizzard, still working there now. Think about the ex-employees, that are victims, from Blizzard that still play the game(s), because the love the CONTENT they created and are, rightfully so, proud of what they created.
If you don’t like the game, and there are enough reasons to, just stop playing.
If you stop playing just to “burn down Blizzard”, that’s not a good reason to do so.
According to some sources production at Blizzard has all but halted for the moment.
That could result in delays in releases patches and expansions and entire games, because I highly doubt that this was only a thing in the WoW team. This was systematic, is systematic and effects Diablo Immortal, Diablo IV
This is really funny, I play a game where you don’t want alts.
Where everything can be done by one toon.
If you need a tank in the raid and you play a dps, you just click one button and you, or anyone else for that matter becomes a tank.
Remaking WoW and Blizzard at the same time?
Golden Saucer in FF14 is a casino much like the DMF in WoW
Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at some of the most useful World of Warcraft addons out there.
