AVR and Power Auras

I just had a really chilling thought.. what if Blizz, while “breaking” AVR’s functionality also breaks Power Auras? That will be a sad sad day. There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

BETABETABETA

Are you beta testing or playing a game you can’t wait to play? Me? I’m doing neither. But if you were in the beta… would you actually beta it? I work in software engineering. My QA person sets up QA tests. It is 42 different versions of poking at the software from every angle. He tests old features to make…

Well how about that…

<Caffeine> went into ICC-25 on Friday/Saturday. For the first time in 25s they downed Putricide. I wasn’t there. I went out of town and went camping. I’m so proud I could just about burst. So now we’re 11/12 in ICC-10 and 8/12 in ICC-25.

“Ok, last attempt guys”

Seriously, I’m thinking about using those words on every attempt. For those who have been following along at home I’ve…

Cataclysm Beta Opt-in

Cataclysm Beta Opt-in (the real one, not the one that just phishes your account info from you) is now available. https://www.battle.net/account/management/beta-profile.xml If your account has an authenticator you will need to have that when you attempt to opt-in. Really I expected the Alpha to last longer. Currently prognosticating October for release. I’ll be (happily) surprised if it comes earlier.

Battle.net Noodling

Things the bug me about RealID. What if I don’t what to associate my “real” name with my online handle? What if it’s socially unacceptable for me in my RL to be a “gamer” and being “found out” would be bad? I don’t know my “friends” by their “real” name.. I know them by a handle. Seriously. I don’t call…
