Cause your friends don't dance, and if they don't dance they ain't no friends of mine

You could leave your friends behind.

Let me know when the WEAPONs wake up.

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

Heals many wounds

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

So it's been a while since I've had a misassembled Transformers toy.

@  Echowarrior : (11 January 2021 - 10:02 AM)

More Micromasters would be welcome.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

Oh no, he was loved. I'd argue he could have had a better life physically, but he was loved. Deeply.

@  Telly : (08 January 2021 - 01:42 AM)

as long s/he gave love and was loved, it was a good life

@  Echowarrior : (07 January 2021 - 11:10 PM)

@  CORVUS : (07 January 2021 - 03:04 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 January 2021 - 10:45 AM)

So: My sisters dog just had a heart attack and died... while her 12 year old son was walking him. Welcome to 2021 everybody!

@  Dekafox : (04 January 2021 - 07:24 PM)

Except they're Deceptican'ts usually.

@  Devcon : (04 January 2021 - 05:17 PM)

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

@  Bass X0 : (04 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Deception is the French word for disappointment. What does that make the Decepticons in France?

@  Echowarrior : (03 January 2021 - 11:29 PM)

We're just tiny little specks, about the size of Mickey Rooney.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 January 2021 - 04:33 PM)

It's a great big universe, and we're all really puny.

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour.

@  TM2-Megatron : (02 January 2021 - 11:57 PM)

relative to the speed that it's swirling around the centre of the galaxy, its rotation is fairly slow

@  PlutoniumBoss : (02 January 2021 - 09:31 PM)

I'd like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 January 2021 - 07:21 PM)

The Earth moving gave us 2021.

@  ▲ndrusi : (02 January 2021 - 10:50 AM)

It does that.

@  tigerhawk : (02 January 2021 - 10:11 AM)

I think the Earth is moving.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:35 AM)

Sunday evenings are awesome. Looking at the clock at 8 PM and thinking "I still have plenty of time before going to bed..."

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:33 AM)

Now I've been working permanent late shift for almost three years. Don't regret it one bit. One of the rare cases where the needs of the company overlap with my own preferences.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:32 AM)

Before the permanent late shift was introduced three years ago (which I volunteered for as soon as the form became available), I always tended to plan my vacation for early shift weeks. Since the majority of the people in most departments prefer to work early shift and thus tended to plan their vacation for late shift weeks, there were usually enough slots available for me to get my request fulfilled.

Huh. So the Gilgoblins from Nazjatar are just chilling by the docs in Bladefist Bay. No quests. No dialog. Just the three companion characters, a sea giant and a Muri...uhh..lobster guy.

Future allied race perhaps?

Just seems like an odd addition.

Really hoping they will be.  Them and the Ahkoans as well.

 

Ironbite-I wonder if I could flash over to Hoard on my main for awhile and pick up the Allied Races I haven't yet.

I could see the new friendly Mogu joining a side as well.

Seems random that they'd just introduce a group of friendly Mogu. Especially when they could have easily just had the Vale faction be a group of Pandas.

They also use the Draenai rig. So some of the work is done. There is a female design too. Including new female NPCs in the Rajani.

Well that female Mogul isn't new, she is the same model as Lu'lin from the twin consorts encounter in Throne of Thunder.  The model has been around for awhile now.

 

I don't think we will be getting any allied races for awhile now.  BFA is now done, we are not getting an 8.5, and after that the focus will be on Shadowlands.  The races we meet there are all likely not allied race candidates, since they are all part of the afterlife, and would have no reason to join a faction.

 

When we get around to new races again, I just hope they are completely new races again, not variants of a current race in the game.  We could still get Naga or Etherals, and they would require a lot more work from the artists then the Allied Races from BFA did to be playable.

Eh. I could see one more round of Allied races in the prepatch to go along with the revamped leveling system. 

 

And just to clarify.  I was referring to the twin female Mogu from Throne of Thunder for the female designs.  Just brought up that the Rajani have female Mogu as the twins were supposed to be the last after the Thunder King wiped out the other females.  The Rajani having females shows that is not the case anymore. So I definitely feel they are at least laying some groundwork for playable Mogu here.

Well Blizzard has made a compromise on the whole High-Elf issue.

Looks like Alliance High-Elves are here, in a fashion anyway.

Yup, I think Shadowlands is going to have to be revolutionary to keep things going. Unfortunately, we've seen nothing that suggests that it's not just same old.

 

What's Blizzard's main money maker these days? Hearthstone? They've basically stopped supporting HotS, and Overwatch 2 has been announced so the first will probably be winding down too.

WoW is doing fine, subs are surprisingly up for an end of the expansion, mostly cause people are stuck at home.  Right now it is one of Activision/Blizzard's few big sources of income, and that came from the last investor quarterly meeting, so there is no reason to lie there. 

 

Most of the stuff for Shadowlands that has come out from people int he Alpha has been pretty positive, certainly is in a better place then we were for BfA at this time.  It looks like they are fixing a lot of the issues that happened to the classes and systems over the years, and also done a proper revision of the trade skills.  Torghast is getting rave reviews, so that looks like it will be a fun addition as well, it is getting more positive talk then Islands and Warfronts did.

 

As for the High Elf options for Void Elves, I really don't consider it a break the glass moment.  High Elf fans are a very loud but, small minority, (some are already complaining they still can't make Paladins on Void Elves, or have a full High Elf Allied race, which will not be happening). This decision actually did manage to piss off a larger part of the player population, that being the militant Horde Blood Elf players.  They are furious Alliance got anything like this, and there are way more of them then High Elf Fans. (Interestingly enough, this group of players also has massive crossover with the players who adore Sylvanas and think she can never do any wrong).

 

Blizzard likely did this as a compromise, since the High Elf fans have been asking for this since even before BC, and know was an easy time to do this with the upcoming customization options.  I will say with this Alpha Blizzard has been listening and communication a lot better then they did previously, so this may just be related to that.

I just got back into this now that my net speed no longer makes updating it such a chore. Decided to roll a new level 110 Blood Elf Hunter since a buddy was having fun as a Demon Hunter and I wanted to try going after the Vulpera to unlock. Ive gotten to 120 and played out the Zandalar quests. So I have to go through the war storyline to unlock world missions in Zandalar? And is there any way to build my Voldun reputation in the meantime. I tried a contract but Im guessing thats more for world missions and dungeons.

Switch code: SW-6538-7795-1972

Yeah, the contract is so you get more rep from world quests, so it's not actually useful until you unlock those. Then it's just WQs forever, augmented occasionally with rep missions from your dumb mission table.
