Very interesting. I never would have thought that an item-deleting bug could be caused by tampering with code governing the time stamps of quests. I wonder if it’s related to the curious UI for quests in Destiny 2, where quests are displayed as “items” in a “quest inventory,” rather than entries on a to-do list. I’ve… Read more
CPS schools are in fact open; they’re offering free childcare during regular school hours. They’re also offering breakfast and lunch, as per the usual for CPS. There’s no teaching going on, obviously, and I can’t speak to the quality of the activities on offer at every school, but my eight year old is enjoying… Read more
Of course, in Vanilla WoW, there was no sharding. When the server filled up, you had to queue to log in, and if excessive numbers of people tried to congregate in one place, the lag became brutal. I suspect every Vanilla Alliance player remembers entering Ironforge, hitting a lag spike, and falling into a trench.
Excellent. Little details can make such a big difference in usability; I’m glad to see GMG paying attention to inclusive web design.
As Dragonfliet said, you can probably jump in right now and have fun with the campaign and leveling to 30. The game is gorgeous, the combat punchy, and the flying very satisfying.

Thank you for all your hard work, and for sharing your story with us. Our society benefits greatly from the courage of those who are willing to speak for those who are ignored, misunderstood, belittled, persecuted or disenfranchised. I wish you every success as you continue on your path forward against adversity.
Such a truly gorgeous game, with one very immersion-breaking problem...
I think you may have accidentally missed the [Nightmare Fuel] tag on this post, Luke.
I moved to Australia 18 years ago with my parents. I remember the day Dad came back from the dealership with our new car, and invited us all to come out the back and have a look. Mum hopped in the driver’s seat, and I took the passenger’s seat. As soon as we closed the doors, a giant spider, about six inches across,… Read more
Not this time! A Home Equity Line of Credit should be sufficient.
