OOC – Special Projects and Ramblings…


November 26, 2017

 

I’ve been having a blast with all the things to do in-game currently.  Anniversary stuff as well as the killing turkeys event.  This is probably my favorite time of year for gaming and I do enjoy it quite a bit, however, I still have too many characters to deal with and that’s my fault.

At least I have a fully functional keyboard now because my son gave me another gaming keyboard that I can use without feeling like I’m trying to type on a Navy Carrier.  The last one was huge, had all the bells and whistles but it wasn’t for me, I’m not that great and when you can’t find the keys to use, it’s really crippling. Oh well, at least I now have something that I can use easily without any trouble at all.

I’ve been running around trying to do a few of the things that I want to do today, however, last week was a bit tough when trying to level up on the Moon Guard realm with the Project 60 running – not so much the disruption of RP sessions as it was in just general leveling.  Oh well, that’s how it goes, and I can understand why the realm was chosen by the streamers.  Now, this week I am on another realm for Project 70 to disrupt a bit, same issues – just leveling in general in the lower brackets.

I know that some of the forums have been raising all kinds of noise about the projects using RP realms for their adventures, however, it is primarily because the RP realms have special sharing and CRS abilities that are not available to the general realms or even PvP realms.  You have a few rotten apples in the barrel that try to deliberately upset people just like you do at any time you’re doing MMO gaming.  On a personal level, I choose to leave the people alone and let them do their things.  I’m all for embracing the thoughts of Classic Servers coming back to WoW, however, trying to live it this far in advance with all the changes in the game since it’s inception really is kind of silly – if they are having fun and not truly disrupting things, I’m all for it.   I’m sure that all of this will die down eventually, and we can all just kind of relax before the next expansion is released.

I know that I have gotten spoiled over the years with the advent and the ability to utilize my heirloom gear and I don’t know that I would enjoy reverting all the way back at this point.  I remember Classic and I remember what a pain in the backside it could be for those of us that weren’t affiliated with a progressive raiding guild.  I had multiple characters back then too and only played on one realm and there was no RP to be had, I don’t think.  All I can remember is that we (where I lived at the time) were only allowed to go onto one realm – lovingly referred to as IceDown (Ice Crown) and it was down quite a bit with maintenance and all kinds of server issues.  Oh, those were not fun days, however, Blizzard did reimburse us for time lost from not being able to play.  I know that I will be trying out the “new” Classic when it comes available, however, I know that I will continue to be active on my retail version more.

This is one of my many characters just cruising around with the rest of them, trying to get the Anniversary gifts from killing the World Bosses in Azeroth.  First attempt at posting pictures like I used to do – needs more practice.
