Pandas?  I can't say I'm super excited.

I'm curious of two things...

One, when will this new expansion be released? 

Two, will the Panda folk be Horde?  Alliance?  Both?  Neither?

1. Undisclosed.. 'when it's done'

2. Neutral.. till level 10. They then CHOOSE their faction.

Panderans can be: Everything but Druids, Warlocks, Palidins.

Every race but Worgen/Goblins can be Monks.

Monks are sorta like Palidins in that they fill all 3 roles.
-Brewmaster: Tank
-Windmaster: Healer
-<I forgot>: DPS

Pet Battles.. think.. POKEMON.

You can 'fight' wild pets to 'capture & train' and there are 'Masters' you can fight to learn special abiliites.

It's finally happened: they've reached a point where their expansion trailers actually make me wonder why I played the game in the first place.

It would appear I've fully detoxed.

On the other hand I, having been clean since about 7 months, are feeling the draw to look back into it.

Damn, that's a lot of positive changes.

I remember watching this trailer for the first time.  I said to myself, "Wow, it looks like Kung Fu Panda."  Then a panda popped up as a monk and I said.."Holy shit it's Kung Fu Panda!"

I saw a total of 1 match and the final of the star craft match, I was drunk the rest of the time.

I even did the lore zone and got to the second prize, drunk as hell.

I put down their loss to the fact that they were SLIGHTLY behind and maybe got a bit reckless in trying to get ahead.

Most likely, though Blood Legion is a fantastic guild all and all, so it was a fair loss. I'm still amazed that they have a boss of Ragnaros calaber on heroic farm.

Apparently Blizzard is dealing with a fairly major fuss about the closing ceremonies for Blizzcon as they broadcast a video statement by a member of the band Cannibal Corpse (who was there apparently to perform with the Blizzard Band Level 90 Elite Tauren Chieftan).

The statement referred to Alliance players as "faggots" and "emo cocksuckers".

So you can imagine this raised a bit of an uproar (both on the LGBT side for using those terms in a derogatory manner, and on the general Alliance side, as for some folks it confirmed their theory that Blizzard prefers the Horde), and I think Blizzard reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallly should have known better on the LGBT side, because this was an EDITED statement from 2007.. so it's not like they didn't KNOW what was on the video, this wasn't an off-the-cuff remark.

Blizzard went through a few half-apology/argument blue comments before they woke up and realized they screwed up and have basically said "Yeah, we screwed up badly. We apologize"
