World of Warships, the enormously popular ship battling MMO from Wargaming, announced that ranked season 12 begins on May 30th. Aircraft Carriers will be playable in ranked this season and the current ranked map rotation includes North, Sea of Fortune, Tears of the Desert, Shards, Riposte, and the new Greece map.

There also seems to be some weirdness with tagging on some of the dailies. There’s an Ancient Corals daily where you have to kill ten of these ancient corals (which are not at all named ancient corals). I went to the coral section because hey that made sense and there were two different mobs which counted in that area. Whitewave Riftwalkers were a smaller mob, and it seemed like there was a fair number of them around. There were also Seashell Riftwalkers which were bigger, had more health, and there were fewer of them around.

Chances are that even if the person viewing the presentation doesn’t know about the live links inside it, they’ll start wondering what the arrow is all about and once they move their mouse over the link the cursor will magically change from normal to link cursor. That’s the most you can do. … [Read more...] about How to Untap Slideshare for Blog Traffic & Higher Google Ranking
The Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion is a great reason to start back up with the introduction of the new Hoarfrost Reach region. The snow-covered landscape combined with new creatures around every corner is a sight to see. Except for the few areas where you have to trudge through deep snow, nobody needs those. Fortunately, most fights don’t take place in the deep snow. However, it’s frustrating when you can barely walk and need to dodge a giant monster in your face. … [Read more...] about Monster Hunter World Impressions
