The next World of Warcraft content update,

“Before the Storm,” will include the new PvP Honor System, as well as other new features that will prepare us for The Burning Crusade expansion. We are currently planning to release this content update next Tuesday, December 5. Please note that the patch date is still subject to change, and we will keep you informed of any changes to the plan as they happen.

If the patch goes live as planned, this will be the last week that new PvP ranks under the old Honor System can be earned, as the patch will immediately introduce the new Honor System. We will run one final honor calculation on December 5 and update everyone’s ranking accordingly on that date so that players who achieve a new rank for that week have the opportunity to display that title on their character. Please note, however, that no new PvP rewards will be unlocked for purchase with this final “old Honor System” calculation, regardless of any increase in rank.

For those who have been seeking high-rank PvP armor and weapons, note that the new Honor System will still include these item rewards, and it will actually be easier to earn these items under the new Honor System than under the old Honor System. Those who wish to see how their PvP abilities measure up against other players will still be able to do so under the new Arena System.


P.S. At last they announce it. And I lost my opportunity for Champion. Ah, well. I played it a little too safe. My call. At least they’ve finally announced it.

Good Lord. Patch Day Again?

Albeit a small patch it still means I can’t log on after loading it.

Was wanting to create a character on Sen’jin to check out the Bloggers. Might be fun. (And I would not be the oldest for a change! Woot!)

But, Alas, it’s Tuesday at Blizzard and the servers are down. They’re up. They’re down. They’re up. They’re down. … …

Tell me why? I don’t like Tuesdays. Tell me why? I don’t like Tuesdays. Tell me why? I don’t like Tuesdays. I want to shoot the whole day down. Down, down, shoot it all down.

Silicon chips inside their servers got switched to overload…

To borrow from the Boomtown Rats.

Yes, it was patch day. Patched to 1.10. Woo hoo! Well. My level 24 Priest will get to respend her talents, but no big deal. My Shaman gets nerfed some in that he can no longer airwalk with his sentry totems.

I was looking forward to logging onto my Paladin (Daltaville, husband of my wifes Paladin, Sichelgaita. But of course.) and spending the time in Elwynn fixing my add-ons, and watching a rain event with any luck.

And so I paid bills, trolled the guild’s forums, downloaded Planetside: Reserves (see the Van Hemlock link for the details), and actually got to fire that up and get killed a few times before I went to sleep.

I have Civ IV and actually started two games. It’s just not the same. I lasted five minutes before I checked to see if the servers were up.

I wanted to lay the smack down on those whiskered kobolds in the Jasperload Mine! I want to see my Druid dance in cat form. I really wanted to get my add-ons fixed/resolved before Molten Core tonight.

And the silicon chips inside their servers
Got switched to overload
Oh, and nobody’s goin’ to go to Elwynn today
They’re going to make them stay at home
And the gamers don’t understand it
Blizzard was always as good as gold
And they can see no reason
‘Cause there was no reason
And what reason do they need to be shown?

Tell me why – I don’t like Patch Days
