I was able to run through the next phase of WoW's BFA pre-patch content today, and I have a few thoughts on how I would have done things differently. The BFA pre-patch event has gone for almost two weeks now. Week one was the removal of artifacts, class balance changes, etc. Week two they added the first wave of the quests leading players to Darkshore where the Alliance and Horde are once again fighting each other as the War of the Thorns: Chapter 1. The video makes it look way cooler than it plays. Week 2's (Chapter 1's) quests were really lackluster. I was able to go through them in under half an hour. I thought the writing (in terms of the overall story) to be lackluster. There weren't any "woah!" moments in these quests, nor were the objectives interesting at all. Several of them were 'click 7 boxes' or 'kill 10 orcs' or 'gather 6 nodes'. I really felt no hype or significance from them. When I reached the last quest of this phase, I actually didn't realize it had ended. It was … [Read more...] about How I Would Have Done WoW’s BFA Pre-Patch
Did you know about all the MMOs I hate? I sure as heck didn’t! I mean, I knew there were a few games I hated (Scarlet Blade, Alganon) and some that I have pretty poor feelings toward for various reasons (Star Citizen, EVE Online, League of Legends, H1Z1: Kash of the Kow), but those are also games I discuss only in particular circumstances. Yet thankfully, I have been informed over the near-decade of writing about MMOs that there are a number of games I thought I liked but that I do, in fact, hate. This was a surprise to me, but I think that for purposes of comprehension, it’s best for me to list for reference all the games that I apparently utterly despise. It’s all very confusing to me, but I’m confident that by sharing and making the occasional off-color joke, I’ll be able to decipher it all. 1. The Elder Scrolls Online When I played The Elder Scrolls Online for the game’s beta phase, I had very little nice to say. This was due to a number of … [Read more...] about Perfect Ten: A list of all the MMORPGs I supposedly hate
Ever since I started designing templates for blogger, I often forget few important stuffs in the process. However, over the years, I’ve developed the habit of having a checklist so that I don’t miss out anything. Well, in this article, I’ll be sharing some 5 common mistakes that most of the web designers like me tend to forget when launching their blog/website. So, if you are web designer, then I suggest you to include the points mentioned below on your checklist of tasks to be performed for your client’s template. 1.

Servando: Since the last time I interviewed Zach who was making $8,000 per month with Amazon Affiliate Sites (now more than 5 figures per month) the topic got a lot of popularity around my blog. When I was contacted by Dennis who’s making 4 figures per month and he has managed a few PBNs and backlinks for other people around the niche I just couldn’t refuse to accept his guest post 🙂 I bet this will help a lot of people who’s got questions from the last interview I did a few months ago. Hey everyone, let me quickly introduce myself, my name is Dennis from Passive Solutions, I’ve been into SEO for almost 4 years now, initially ranked a few sites myself with pure spam (which worked great for a while), and eventually turned into PBN’s and sold over $500000,- worth of link packages at the Warrior Forum! As SEO got a bad name I moved into ranking my own sites again, Amazon affiliate sites that is, as it became harder and harder to gain clients it was … [Read more...] about The difference between making $1,000 and $10,000 per month from Amazon Affiliate Sites
