The BFF Report Pretends to have Never Played WoW...
2010-07-12 à 13:38
Remember back when all of you claim to have started playing WoW? You know, the pre-beta days when the game was nothing but conceptual drawings and quest ideas jotted on a notepad. That's when the game was hardcore, unlike today, where these n00bs benefit from Blizzard's "casual friendly" experience. Back then, we used to have to grind through countless sheets of college rule and RNG was only a dice roll away.
Well, I decided to pretend that none of that ever happened and that I was just another casual in today's gaming industry trying to mooch a G. Let's see how I did..

Blizzard has just posted their official preview of one of Cataclysm's new zones: the !
Located past Grim Batol to the east of the Wetlands, the Twilight Highlands is home to the Twilight's Hammer. The Dragonmaw clan now cling to the edges of the Highlands, while the Wildhammer Dwarves dwell in forested outposts throughout the land. Throughout the zone you will encounter the destructive nature of the elements, and some hints at the Old Gods...

Dolby Axon Releases Client API
2010-07-09 à 13:14
So I don't know if anyone but me is following what Dolby is doing with their new
service, but it's something that I've been interested in so I thought I'd take a moment to mention it here.
For those of you who don't know, Dolby Axon is a VoIP service that Dolby has created, intended to fulfill the same needs as a Ventrilo or TeamSpeak server , but with a lot of extra functionality—for example, Axon can actually
your voice in 3D so you can actually hear teammates located in a particular spot in full surround.
Well Axon has just released an API for their desktop client, which has the potential to mean even
Blizzard Withdrawing RealID Plan for Official Forums
2010-07-09 à 12:19
In a statement released today, Blizzard says that they have decided against using RealID to identify forum users on the official forums. Blizzard
that they were moving to a forum system where everyone was identified by their real names. Citing user feedback, they've decided that it was not in the best interests of the community to move forward with that plan.
The statement (seen below) was written by Blizzard's CEO, by Mike Morhaime. It was posted on the forum by Nethaera.
I'd like to take some time to speak with all of you regarding our desire to make the Blizzard forums a better place for players to discuss our games. We've been constantly monitoring the feedback you've given us, as well as internally discussing your concerns about the use of real names on our forums. As a result of those discussions, we've decided at this time that real names will not be required for posting on official Blizzard forums.
It's important to note that we still remain committed to improving our forums. Our efforts are driven 100% by the de

Blizzard Announce Changes To Talents, Specialization and Mastery
2010-07-07 à 11:55
Zarhym just posted an announcement on the official forums with Blizzard's change in design with how talents and mastery will be changing for an upcoming
One of the major changes mentioned is that instead of putting talents where ever you want starting at level 10 you are asked what would would like your
to be. After picking your spec you will only be allowed to put talents into that tree until 31 points are spent.
Another change (this is a
one) is you will only gain talent points every
level. This means by level 85 you will only have
41 talent points
The final change is Mastery will no longer be affected by how many talent points you have spent in the tree but instead be given as flat percentages. The percentages can be increased by the mastery stat on items which you will be able to make use of when you learn the new Mastery skill around level 75.
So a quick rundown on the changes:
At level 10,
you will be asked to specialize into a single talent tree
You can only spend talent points in th
The Weekly Marmot - Cataclysm Zone & Quest Design
2010-07-06 à 18:27
This week, I get entirely too excited about how incredibly awesome questing is in the expansion. No longer will leveling from 1-60 just be the part of the game you try to breeze through as quickly as possible so you can get into the "more interesting" quests. Don't believe me? Watch this.
Also, my wedding ring fell off in a lake.
In the Future, All Posts on the Official Forums Will Show RealID
2010-07-06 à 13:00
According to a post Nethaera just put up on the official forums, future posts on the official WoW forums will be posted by RealID, rather than by character name. This means that when you post on the official forums, you will be identified by your first and last name.
Nethaera has posted a thread in the official forums detailing the reasons for this change. Most important to note is that it will
not be retroactive
—previous posts on the forums will still be printed the same way. Only
posts will be converted.
This is an interesting change. I admit I'm concerned a bit—partially about privacy issues but mostly about security. But honestly, my first and last name are up all over the Internet already. I have a blog at
, so anybody who happens to be curious about my personal info can find it there. What I'm
curious about is to see how this affects flaming and trolling on the forums. Would you behave differently on the forums if anybody who read your post knew your real name? Time to find out!
The blue posts are after the break!
