“A noble man is led by woman’s gentle words.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
It means “nobility demands” and suggests that those with power should take care of those with less. Or, sometimes, if you have a job title that it means that you have to go to work on your day off. I think you’ll find Corruptsome quite the noble with her opulent crown.
Rank 3 Mystical Cauldron. When they said “Uldir bosses” I had hoped that the tooltip had not been updated.
After running the LFR and raiding on Tuesday, I finally tried Uldir. After waiting over an hour for the queue to pop, I got it on the first boss.
I do want to talk a little about the Blizzard layoffs. I’ve read some good blog posts and I think I have a handle on what is going on.
If a MMO is like a music album, then a mobile game is like a single song. Much easier to make and much easier to hope for a hit. If you are a super star, those timed releases are a sure bet if the song is like the last one. But, maybe a MMO is not like a music album because we don’t really listen to music albums anymore.
Maybe a MMO is like a novel. Well-known writers get paid by the word and put out tomes, huge spy thrillers for example and everyone waits on the next book. Or you go the Amazon route and publish everyone and hope for that a 50 Shades of Grey to go viral.
I think that rather than to try and anticipate the next big thing like esports or to scramble to catch the last big thing like streaming that it is best to invest in a good, high quality game. Build your fan base and cater to it and not try to push it beyond it’s boundaries.
I think that is what is going on by laying off the support and investing in designers.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
