You probably wondered why I haven’t posted about World of Warcraft in a while. The simple truth is that my motivation has been steadily declining with the lack of updates and content. Just do the math, from November ’11 to Sept’12 that is 10 months and fees without new content …
10 years ago, it was an afternoon at the office … not too much to do and I was browsing the mystics.de forum. We were posting about game stuff, when someone posted that a plane hit the World Trade Center. I recall being amused at first … not about the incident, but about the fact that a pilot could actuall hit such a big obstacle by mistake.
As some of you may know I sometimes create wordpress themes. Once in a while you run across a design, that doesn’t fit the goal you had in mind, but at the same time is too nice to just thrash. There are probably a a couple of people who can use these and finish customization for themselves.
While we defeated the heroic version of Conclave of Wind, the first encounter in Throne of the Four Winds, a few resets ago I did not have a video of the kill. This reset I made up for that and got something nice for you to watch.
A steep learning curve that felt like a 10 km mountain on our heads, mostly caused by what felt like 1000 disconnects and 20-23 player progression we finally got the fabulous 25 for some decent tries together. Fortunately I happened to fraps the show for you!
In 1991-1996 I have been part of the German Army Aviation Forces. I had the choice to waste 1 year of my life as conscript or actually get something back from the army. I decided to become offcier, helicopter pilot and study at the University of German Armed forces in Hamburg. Back then you had to sign up for 14 years for this career.
In 1994/1995 however I noticed that my real interest was computers and also my professor told me I was too intelligent to “waste my life in the army” 😀
Fortunately the forces got reduced at the time and the Bundeswehr was happy for each pilot that was willing to go sooner. For economic reasons they decided to dust in 30% of their helicopters in order to have the reamining ones 10 years longer in service.
This summer wasn’t particulalry nice to us 😀 Soccer World Championship, hot hot summer, vacation, unstable realm Ravencrest – Ravencrest locked down each day during prime time for a couple of hours for 1.5 months, which made progressive raiding impossible.
But last night we finally had a full team and downed Halion.
The last weeks have been hard on my patience. Each run seemed to drop less and less Shadowfrost Shards 😀 and especially the last raids felt like an eternity. It felt almost like so many years ago, as little kid impatiently awaiting Christmas Eve.
