10 Million Strong… And Growing! — This past week, Blizzard had their earning call. One of the biggest things we can take away from it is…. WOW IS NOT DYING!

But first, let me take a B.E.L.F.I.E!

Discussion Topics:

#1:  Logging tools:  What are they? Why should raids use them? What information on them is useful to raiders overall and not just raid leaders?

#2: Over-tuned VS undertuned VS sensitive gamers

#3: With new social media additions coming to 6.1 has wow bridged a gap to entice new gamers to play wow, or gone to far?

#4: Do you feel this expansion has been stunted at all by not adding a new class or BG’s other than Ashran, like in previous expacs?

    My raid team uses both Warcraft Logs and Ask Mr. Robot Infographics. Our MT keeps track of the logs and I handle the Infographics and we have been pushing the whole raid team to at least check out AMR to see places where they can possibly improve so we can down more bosses in a timely manner. Right now we are only 5/7 Normal HM but in the short time that the inforgraphics have been available for use they have already been instrumental in the team improving and getting through content faster. As far as Twitter and S.E.L.F.I.E. integration into the game goes, I personally think it’s a stupid idea and won’t be utilizing it any. I’m sure plenty of other people will have a blast with it but sadly I feel like I may be in the same boat as Epic and just end up unfollowing a lot of people just to clean up my TL some. Like I said, we are only 5/7 Normal so I can’t say if the fights in BRF are over or under-tuned but HM feels pretty good if that counts for anything. I don’t really think that this expansion is hurting from not having a new class/race. I heard lots of grumbling from people in MoP about Monks and Pandaren because they didn’t want to have to start back at level 1. In WoD you can always boost a character up to level 90 now and skip all that old world content but that still means people have to pay extra money to essentially get somewhere that they already are, just with a new variation of abilities and traits. Love the show.
