I know, a blog post about this can come to no good. Either I’m not going to be coming down on Blizzard hard enough and am a lolblizzardfangirl or I should be ingratiatingly thankful that they deign to allow me to play this game… Oh I’ve read some of the entries on the forums and I’ve seen both extremes. There now, that’s out of the way.
I AM thankful for the tabard. It’s a great thing for someone like me. I’ve ground everything to exalted on my main and am finally able to really look at some serious alt leveling. I would wish for it to be an 8% increase for questing as I am a quester but it’s probably too soon for that sort of boost so all good.
I think it’s fantastic that World of Warcraft is on it’s 8th year… that’s pretty amazing and I’ve been a part of it for most of those 8 years. I started playing because Endyme gave it to me for a Christmas present and shortly after my then boyfriend, now husband got an account and subscribed. We play together – we’re a team and a pretty fabulous one if I do say so. He’s stayed on his paladin and I’ve moved from my warlock to my death knight. We co-tank and that is probably the most fun part of the game for me – two tanks moving as one unit. We’re usually decently in sync but on occasion we achieve that level of perfect synergy and that is a bit of a high. A paladin and a death knight – who’d have thunk it?
Anyway, I confess, I find it a bit silly that Blizzard wouldn’t work for some perfection themselves with anniversaries… Oh, yeah I’d love a pet but that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about sending us the same mail as they did last year.
Yeah, probably a glitch. Maybe someone didn’t think about it. It’s the thought that counts…
Sending me the same letter indicates no thought was given. That’s my real problem here. I mean I could sit here right now and write out a new thank you note in about what, three minutes?
Unless Deathwing really is coming back…Then we’re all in trouble!
I don’t expect perfection from Blizzard nor do I really believe I’m a valued subscriber. I haven’t thought that since my Cataclysm beta experience which really soured me. But enjoying the game as I do means I don’t think about that all that much.
Except they sent me the same note… so I had no choice but to think about it.
