More Cataclysm Miscues, More on Slut Plate, and More Shire Pls!

Moar! We wants moar!

Yes, today we’ve got more of all sorts of things – more evidence that 25-man raiding is dying, more on the Slut Plate controversy, and more little things that Cataclysm was missing…

  • The Grumpy Elf continues his series on tiny things that went missing in Cataclysm as he asks where in the world is Helmut Nessingwary?“Every step we have taken in the game, with each advance we have, there are always new adventures to be had with the greatest hunter to ever live. He will always have some big game in his sights and he will always seek us out to assist him. He has become as much a part of our lives as anything else in game. “
  • Graylo has been analysing the numbers, and he’s got bad news – 25-man raiding is definitely dying“I think these numbers point to the decline of 25man raiding very clearly. As you can see the kill rates on 25man have declined with each tier of new content going from 17.45% in T11, to 13.21% in T12, to 11.28 % in T13.”
  • Apple Cider follows up her “Slut Plate” post with a discussion of just why language matters“You cannot acknowledge that words have power but say it is all resting on the people who are audience to grant that power to said words. No, the power of words is precisely why word choice is so thorny to begin with.”
  • And Syp at Bio Break wonders something that I’ve considered too – could we have an entire MMO just set in the Shire?“We could actually get to know our NPC neighbors and each of us would develop growing relationships with them — love, friendships, feuds, political buddies, etc. Every day, we would log in not knowing what adventure and events are happening right outside our front door, and major events could even shape the landscape (figuratively or not) of the zone for years to come after.”
