HEADLINES: WAR FACTORY ESTABLISHED BY 93RD AS PART OF LARGER ALT MOVEMENTS.
PALUSTER, MIDLANDS- The 93rd has announced the establishment of a new “war factory”, as they insist on calling it. This War Factory uses newer, certain methods.
When asked what items it could produce, the 93rd representatives simply returned with another question “Well, what do you want?”. Whether that was a well-timed boast or they can’t speak English properly, only time will tell.
EDITORIAL - Milking out a Franchise and How Annoying It Can Get
Irishkaiser - One of my beloved franchises growing up was Warcraft, especially Warcraft III and its expansion. The game’s epic storytelling was what drew me in. Playing the missions and resolving conflicts and finding closure for them was a huge part of it for me. Lo and behold, when World of Warcraft was released and with so many expansions, they just killed it all piss for me. What the fuck was the point of everything I did when it was just going to be a part of an endless cycle of stupidity.
I could understand the first two expansions of the WoW series. The first one of course was to test the waters and have fun with it and then the next one with a major plot arc “Wrath of the Lich King” was to finally answer the unresolved situation of the end of the Frozen Throne Campaign and they were within a reasonable, concurrent time frame(the NPCs and characters age with every expansion release)
After that it all went to shit. Oh fuck there’s a dragon in the middle of the ocean fuck what. Holy shit the Burning Legion RETURNS… I mean, the last time they returned after they were beaten was like thousands of years ago but now they can JUST COME BACK NO PROBLEMS? Holy fucking shit. Some of the beloved characters who I put so much emotional investment to come back again. Seriously? They just seem to play with that shit.
Illidan’s dead. Illidan’s alive. Illidan’s dead. ILLIDAN’S ALIVE AGAIN.
Cenarius' death was considered very serious for one faction, but oh shit. He wasn’t dead. HE WAS JUST ASLEEP ALL ALONG. Fucking what? Why the hell you niggas so angry and sad about it then when he was LITERALLY ASLEEP.
Gul'dan, some Orc Warlock who’s been dead since Warcraft II… Oh nigga, you know we’re gonna bring him back. FOR WHAT?
Then here’s where Game Design and Writing really have trouble: NEW RACES. For fuck’s sake. Writing based out of game design initially offers people freedom but game designing out of writing… Well, let’s just say that you are now limited to the writing… Which may or may not be “balanced” if implemented.
What the fuck are VOID ELVES? Where did they come from? Certain ones are alright like the Worgen, because they were used to explain the disappearance of an entire nation for most of the story line but some are just used as filler… Mountain Tauren? Seriously?
Then there’s the Goddamn fighting the Bigger Bad. The Lich King, some Dragon, the Burning Legion again, oh shit… But the Burning Legion wasn’t enough. No, we HAD TO DEFEAT SARGERAS. The Universe’s devil himself.
And after that the world is still shit.
When seeing all this unravel, especially after playing through the predecessor games that established the setting for World of Warcraft, I honestly went like “What the fuck did I just fight for?”. IS THIS THE AZEROTH I FOUGHT LIKE A WAR FOR.
I BET THE JEWS ARE BEHIND THIS. ALL THAT BLOOD SHED FOR NOTHING.
There are some ways of easing the transition… BY ALLOWING MORE TIME. Unfortunately, they push out expansions every year and they conclude that it’s the same exact amount of time that one expansion was released from another.

DOMESTIC - ODD LOOT FROM PALUSTER. WAS ATTACKED.
The 93rd counter its loot two days ago and strangely to outside observers included depth striders and various other items. When questioned, the run leader at the time said “Oh, we were attacked.” with nonchalance.
After hearing the full report, it was noted that two of the dungeoneers had underperformed and Irishkaiser says he will personally oversee their training this week and test them in War Games.
