It’s 27th July for Malaysia, and guess what, its Starcraft 2’s release date!!! And yeah, as the title shown; This is my farewell post to World of Warcraft, and a Welcoming new dawn of Starcraft 2. I have been wanting to post this like ages ago, especially if you can see the date of my World of Warcraft subscription expiry:
I was supposed to post something else before this, but that got delayed, so never mind that for now! Anyways, its a weekend, however unlike any other weekend, this weekend we have 2009 WoW MLG pro circuit Anaheim 3v3 arena tournament going on. Its basically a big time WoW PVP arena tournament, and its at its last day with the finals coming right up in just a few hours later from this post. Think of this as your normal football sport, except this is World of Warcraft, and its played on a computer aka E-Sport.
I am basically going to attempt live blogging this to get myself prepared for perhaps an AFA09 live blog. It sorta worked out for GACC 2009 first day, so why not? heh.
Heres a much delayed highlight (not that its already overdone by Gameriot Bloggers -_-;) of 2009 World of Warcraft Electronic Sports League European regional finals highlights from DMM. Dont think im gonna put up much write up on this as you’re better off checking out Gameriot blog itself, so with that said, i present you the youtube for the (pretty much) best pro-arena moments in WoW EVER:
It’s been a while since my last blog post especially a WoW related one. Not that there is much to write about WoW at the moment considering my rather casual viewpoint of it, however this one particular WoW news is just so full of stupidity i felt it needed some attention if it haven’t got enough from its 12+ million subscriber already. Here i present you the epic facepalm link: Continue reading “Blizzard sued by Glider Bot program maker”
Remember the part i mentioned “Lich King doesnt completely dominate my mind“? Yeap, i epic failed that. Anyways, my first experience with WOTLK is with a DeathKnight (aka DK) DESPITE how i’ve mentioned that i wont hop on the DK bandwagon and just level my Rogue. Unfortunately, (or fortunately?) the WOTLK installation process storytelling Arthas’s story from the very beginning since he was born until he became a DK, and later on a Lich King and sat on the frozen throne with an orchestrated music and choir singing as the background music is well, lets just say im just too easily suckered in for THAT much effort.
As the first picture on the top shown, thats my Yami-chan I’ve created for my DK, named after the character “Konjiki no Yami” aka “Golden Darkness” from the anime ToLove Ru (trouble). I’ve sorta ran outta idea on what the hell to name my new DK, or what kinda race (ANY race can be a DK /facepalm) and looks i want my DK to be. So i look around for some inspiration, and there it is – my Yami-chan figurine staring right at me. There it was: THAT IS IT! It HAS to be her. So I’ve created a DK and modeled + named after her as close as i could.
I present you a gallery of the entire process from the beginning of the “introduction” stages until shes a full fledge DK. Level 55-58. “Segmented” in 3 stages.
The first thing i did, the moment i get to roam around the starting area necropolis, was:
Another of the most memorable part of the DK introduction quests, was the invasion of Light’s hope Chapel (LHC). Its just… totally epic. Imagine those invasion scenes from 300, Troy, LOTR and so forth. That kinda epic cept in a lot smaller scale. (id imagine having over 10-20k units would totally kill anyone’s PC) I’ll save you the long winded description and show you guys the pictures(as usual, click for full resolution pictures):
Ill leave the rest for you guys to find out should you be getting WOTLK soon. As for me, its time to rush for work 🙂
Stay tuned for the next update as well as i got some minor ACF’08 goodies to share 😀
