World of Warcraft brings Brewfest around once more in both retail and The Burning Crusade

Drink.

Do you feel like celebrating right now in World of Warcraft? No, not so much? Can’t imagine why. Let’s try a different question: Do you feel like drinking until you can convince yourself to celebrate right now in World of Warcraft? Because that coincides nicely with the fact that Brewfest is back for players to while away the hours drinking and staggering around. You could theoretically take part in other activities, too, but if you imbibe enough, those will become relatively more difficult.

Of course, there are incentives for taking part in the festivities beyond just drinking until you forget your birthday, like pets, mounts, and transmog items for appropriate Brewfest style. The retail version has undergone some changes from back in 2019, but the Classic servers are hosting a recreation of the original holiday, so you can enjoy all of the Dark Iron raids from the original as you might like. Either way, it’s drinking o’clock in Azeroth for a while.

Also, the Arena World Championships are wrapping up on Saturday.

Activision-Blizzard is considered a controversial company in the MMO and gaming space owing to a long string of scandals over the last few years, including the Blitzchung boycott, mass layoffs, labor disputes, and executive pay fiasco. Most recently, the company was sued by the state of California for fostering a work environment riddled with sexual harassment and discrimination, the disastrous corporate response to which has further compounded Blizzard’s ongoing pipeline issues and the widespread perception that its online games are in decline.

Chris L, however you must admit that the changeover period can be a difficult time for many people. Many of the 2-3 million Issarn people in Bangkok are on poor incomes, work irregularly, or are unemployed. Single women working in massage don’t get paid; instead, they get gratuities or a percentage of the treatment fee. Even graduates who work in industries — there are a lot of them! And, as I previously stated, I do not believe they have access to adequate health care or education. It is difficult to obtain free health care; they must go to a single hospital where they are registered. Some people will participate in informal education if they have the time, means, and motivation to do so – and you can’t always blame them for lacking motivation.
It’s possible that I’m growing a little old.

I am still playing. I love it. Played since vanilla and it keeps changing which is great. Yes I miss my castle and losing 34 120’s bites but it is still the only great game in town. Are the messed up at blizzard…yes….losing developers to startups is unacceptable. Hiring an idiot to run the show who does not play the game for real ..very bad. Pencil pushers do nothing for game companies othe than slowly kill them. As for me I will play till the end as it is still the best and most playable game ever. As for the people trying real hard to kill it. Remember one thing, What goes around comes around! Your turn in the fire is coming.

I don’t think people want to kill it. They just want to see social change within the company and a renewed focus on listening to the players and less on monthly engagement metrics. Once both changes happen I’m sure folks will be back. The point is not to kill the game or Blizz but to make them better and more accountable.

I’d be very wary of accepting a drink from Blizzard.
