So... New Wow time cost. Not a huge fan but it really doesn't impact me very much because I had just subbed last month because of bad RBG systems. (really don't attached player power to RBGs rating) But a quick thought. I feel like the $30/2 pricing is dumb as the people who are hurt by this the most would arguably be your most loyal costumers who said "yes $120 for 6 months, I'll do that." The social impact of business models interests me a lot and I feel like this change is a miss step. Only made worse by some of Activists more recent action.

But you didn't come to Gratz for commentary, you came for story! And it turns out not even a broken leg can slow this story down.

Veja wasn't awake?

Nice touch in Panel 1, showing the burn pattern on one of Veja's pouches and the Katana scabbard. And wow that was a pretty powerful little grenade.

Not commenting on the WoW cost, since it doesn't apply to me now.

What I AM going to talk about: Voting. Review: First week 3/1 - 3/6, GRATZ had 81 votes, average 13.5/day, ending the week at #174 on the Top Webcomic list.

Second week: 3/7 - 3/13; GRATZ showed 98 weekly votes, average of 14.0/day, and ended the week at #168 on the list.

Week three: 3/14 - 3/20: GRATS received 99 weekly votes, averaging 14.14 votes/day, and finished the week at #166 on the list.

Which brings us to the final full week of March: 3/21 - 3/27; GRATZ recorded 92 weekly votes, which averaged 13.14/day, down just a bit. The comic ended the week at #165 on the Top Webcomic List.

We are on the brink of another all-time record for GRATZ. PLEASE keep voting every day. We have THREE days left to make a difference.

Those fire bombs are actually suppose to be shot out of a balista like contraption. They are artillery shells meant to burn ships and towns.

That's Veja's secret. He was always asleep!
No, this comment will probably be addressed in the next page. It's possible that the Previously Nice Innkeep attempted to drug him, or them, through the cook's food, so he's been hazy.

While I've stopped playing WoW (and paying Activision), I'm still watching the news about it. Did you notice that they had a price markdown already on Shadowlands and, I think, other expansions/base game, despite its having been out for not even a year yet? I imagine that it's to drag in new players.

Before Shadowlands came out, I played a bit of FFXIIII, and I was surprised when a guild ad in the chat announced that they were welcoming many WoW veterans. I realized that there must have been an exodus. I also chatted with a different fellow about The Name of the Wind after finding out that he had been a major guild leader for a loooong time, but ended up leaving because of drama, and now had created a new guild in this game. It speaks a lot about the state of WoW, I think, when you start to find so many other players in these games that they would not have been playing otherwise, or left to play WoW.

I remember when I enjoyed the game, probably mostly in WoD and then just Legion after that, but only until they shoehorned Argus in unceremoniously. Now I'm seeing them lay off employees and give them gift cards (hopefully they offered them other positions first), the boss of the entire company getting a massive bonus, and now taking away arguably the best subscription option? I only purchased mine in $15s because of how I felt about the game. So now if I wanted to play a little and see if it had gotten better, I have to pay more for time that'll really just sit around doing nothing after I play for a week, maybe 2 weeks tops, and stop again.

That was a bad move on their part. Hopefully Diablo II isn't borked like Warcraft: Reforged was

Sands and storms, what they duck to Warcraft III still makes me burn with indignation. I get "Hey, we're releasing a "remaster" of an old game."

But disabling everyone's older copies of said game, even when they were old Battlechest discs, to force people to buy reforged? That's about the lowest you can go. I bought WCIII in high school and have kept those discs for almost 20 years.

And all of the sudden they don't work anymore. Just to feed Bobby Kotick's greed-fueled gold-laced cocaine dreams.

That's about as anti-customer as you can be. Blizzard is dead, and their corpse a shambling necrotic horror, leaking ichor and foulness with every step.

It turns out that he only thing that could kill WoW, was WoW itself. And we're all sad for it.

I passed that Shadowlands sell info onto my brother. He wasn't interested in getting back into WoW right now which worked out because 3 weeks later I was done with WoW after my RBG souring.

It's kind of sad because one of the best WoW times for me was MoP 8.0-8.3 because I was playing with my brothers and we would do a lot of PvP and had a ball doing it.

Also yes I really hope Diablo ll isn't screwed up because I really like that game. As a young kind I spent many times over at my friends house watching his skeleton army swarm demons.
