Happy New Year

Happy New Year, everyone!

I'm still working my way through Path of Exile. I'm now in Act 5. Unfortunately, I don't think my character has enough defensives, so I'm dying a lot more. Given that the game doesn't really offer much in the way of respecs, this is beginning to cause my interest to drop. I really don't want to restart with a new character and redo everything.

In WoW, my guild is 2/11 Heroic Antorus. We pretty much only did Normal mode over the holidays though. We start Heroic in earnest this weekend.

Looking at last year, I didn't post a lot. Less than a post a week. I'm not sure if I have nothing new to say, if I'm getting tired of writing, or if I just fell out of the habit. Or maybe the MMO industry is just dying like normal.

At the beginning of the year, I changed to threaded comments on this blog. There's only one level of replies. I did this primarily so I could reply to each comment. But I'm not sure it really worked out. I'm leaning towards going back to a flat comment thread. If anyone has any opinions on this, let me know in the comments.


  1. I enjoyed reading your responses in threaded format to each person that commented. In what ways did you feel it did not work out well?

    Also, thanks for continuing to post, even if the rate has been reduced. I love the succinct nature of your writing and the perspective you provide.

    1. I thought it worked well when it was just me making a single response to an independent comment.

      However, it seemed like it made discussion, or back-and-forth, between multiple commenters difficult. I just think responses to responses worked better in the flat thread style.

  2. Fewer posts, fewer comments ;)

    I'm not playing WoW anymore, still reading your posts - but not much to add I guess...
