Friday – April 6th, 2018
I will have to admit that I sure wasn’t expecting the expansion release date for Battle for Azeroth to be as soon as it appears to be currently. August 18th doesn’t seem to be all that far away when you’re as far behind as I am. Part of the reason that I am behind is due to health reasons and part of it is because I wasn’t paying attention and played stupid. Oh well, I’m still having fun and will continue to do so.
I do have the Alpha for BfA, however, I haven’t played it all that much because I don’t want to get burned out and I don’t want to know everything that is going to happen before it happens in the “live” portion of the game. I have been in almost all the Alpha/Beta portions of the expansions and I will have to admit that it spoiled some of the initial joy of seeing the stuff on live. Oh well, I’ll keep plodding along and doing the things that I want to do because that’s the life of a casual player.
I am excited about the new expansion getting here and will play my brains out for a few days, I’m sure. I think it’s rather ironic that it is going to drop on a Saturday according to my calendar. The EU folks are going to be binge playing like mad because they have a holiday that feeds into the expansion release period. If I was working, I would arrange to have a few days off – I used to do that when I was working anyway. Silly person that I am, I will plan my chores around this event and try to get everything done prior to that. I’m excited because I have a feeling that this is going to be a good expansion because even if I haven’t played Legion all that much, it was good in a lot of ways. Yes, I hate the RNG and the gating that went on, however, being so far behind isn’t all that bad because I don’t have the gates to deal with.
I’m not going to talk about what I have discovered in the Alpha stuff because I know that there are a lot of people out there that don’t want to have the “live” version spoiled by knowing too much. I think that we are all going to be adjusting to our class changes and how the squishes are going to hit us all. I am just happy to get away from the weapon setup that we had in Legion – I did hate that with a passion.
I feel like an utter fool right now too because I have all these alts in-game and I play them because I enjoy them, however, I don’t know why I thought that the reps were shared. Of course, they aren’t shared, you dolt! Now, I am going to have to bust my behind to get some of my characters really caught up. I don’t know why I was running with that misconception other than the fact that I was paying more attention to Pathfinder than I was to the rep grinding that was required. I’m not proud and I can admit when I screw up and move on. I know that I felt stupid when I found out the error of my ways – was looking up info for a friend and that’s when I saw it. Poor person had been working like a fiend to get all the reps for the new races and she thought the same thing that I did, and we were both wrong. Oh well, hey, you gotta learn the hard way sometimes. I can imagine that she is a bit disheartened with the way she worked to find out that the only thing she got was her 110 to almost everything exalted, and her alts start out at friendly.
I will have to admit that I am bouncing all over the game and exploring since I got my new computer, just seeing all the things to see and just killing a bit of time too. Still working on screenshots and things of that nature, might be able to upload them one of these days. I think I am just enjoying the game and laughing like a loon when I get myself into weird situations – still wish I had my flying in Legion but it doesn’t bother me that much except for when I leap off something without thinking about it beforehand.
