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. Keep in mind though that new players can't simply jump right into ranked mode. Players need about 200 matches under their belt before ranked mode becomes available. … [Read more...] about World of Warships Ranked Battles Season 12 Begins May 30
Dailies aren’t just a problem due to the daily compulsion of them but also because many of them seem to be bugged or just a general pain to do, especially in Nazjatar. The most frustrating one for me currently is the bounty to kill rares. It’s come up a couple of times already, and every time it’s incredibly frustrating. The first issue is finding the rares in the first place because there’s nothing in the game to point them out unless you are already close to one. The second problem is getting credit when you find and kill them. I’ve killed a total of five rares in Nazjatar and only have received credit for 2 of them. Most were rares I killed on my own, so there shouldn’t have been any tagging issues, and no I wasn’t in a group or raid for the ones I didn’t get credit for.

I’ve always remembered how broke I always was back in Vanilla; I had to borrow money to get my first mount and getting an epic one at 60 wasn’t even an option. I did, however, forget how expensive the class skills are. Leveling up feels good but going to the trainer to learn a new skill or a new rank only to realize I don’t have enough money feels terrible. It’s only a matter of time before I find myself running a dungeon and it’ll turn out the healer didn’t learn rez because they didn’t have the money for it. This is true to the Vanilla experience though so I can’t knock it too much. Also, the healer will be me this time around so sorry in advance! … [Read more...] about World of Warcraft Classic: Review In Progress
I haven’t decided if Beotodus is difficult because I was undergeared or if they’re one hell of a challenge. The defense stat increase on Iceborne gear is significant enough that I felt underpowered until catching up. Meanwhile, I felt a drop in difficulty almost immediately after fighting Beotodus. As an Insect Glaive main, those who share my playstyle understand its outstanding mobility. It’s an easier weapon for learning fights since I can comfortably dodge most attacks. … [Read more...] about Monster Hunter World Impressions
