The few people who do follow my blog deserve a post. I’m actually writing a lot of posts at the moment, but due to an Non Disclosure Agreement, I can’t post them yet. So shared topics give me a great chance to keep posting that I can publish. Otherwise it’d be Mabango is still in the inn at Dal, Mabaho and the rest are hanging out in Org. Not really worth reading. Anyway, this week Frinka has suggested a topic for Blog Azeroth.
Are you playing the MoP Beta? Why or why not? How much time are you spending there vs. the “live” servers.
Oh definitely not. I don’t want to spoil the surprise! I’m happy to roll up to the new zones on the opening night (or a night or two later) and view it all for the first time. I still remember the first time I ran up the road from Mulgore into The Barrens to explore. Its on of the strongest memories I have of WoW. That would be in about June 2005. Oh, the Barren explore ended with my level 5 or so getting wasted by the first thing I came across and I scooted back to Mulgore to keep questing.
Similarly I remember when Mabaho finally levelled enough to enter The Dark Portal. I’ve posted screenshots of that before. I can’t remember as well the WotLK and Cata but it was similar. That’s the exploring feeling I like.
So I’m not spending any time in the Beta. I don’t have a key and made no effort to get one.
It’s also hard as some of my favourite blogs post stuff on it occasionally. Bubbles of Mischief I almost avoid entirely (sorry Cymre!) as she puts a massive amount of effort into giving us all great info on the new stuff. I plan to read it as I go along later. If you are interested in it, she’s has an awesome amount of stuff.
As for live server, due to another Beta (with the NDA), I’m not logging in much anyway. But I’ll be back in September.

No worries, Mab, hopefully some of it will help you when it goes live 🙂 Matty is is the same boat with you =/
🙂 Yes, I have a mail folder full of screenies from my subscription to your blog that have to check out in September. Can’t wait!
LOL really? That’s good if you’re not looking at them yet 😛 Dare I ask the number of emails in the folder?
I didn’t want anything to do with the beta at first, either, but somewhere around June I caved. The zones, as I got to see them then, were absolutely astonishing. I can understand where you’re coming from, though, as I also felt that way for a long time. But then I just got overly excited and wanted to find out more!
Also, are you beta testing MechWarrior Online? o:
Yes, are you?
My beta status is still pending – I guess I’ll have to wait for open beta.
Did you buy a Founder’s pack?
Yeah, see … https://bikesbabesbytes.wordpress.com/2012/07/12/life-is-cheap-battlemechs-arent/
