Wowhead is a fansite of world of warcraft. It was created by people who enjoy the game for people who enjoy the game.You're allowed to not like something, but coming here to rant about how much you don't like this person or that aspect of a game or just to flame people is unnecessary. It's like if I invited you to my living room for a blizzcon viewing party, but you just booed and were negative the whole time, defending yourself with, 'What, can't I have an opinion?' You can but this isn't the place for that, please leave.You see, Wowhead isn't Blizzard. It's a fansite. Complaining here isn't going to nab Ion's attention. It feels like we live in this world where people watch reality tv and imagine that the whole world wants -their- critique as well. So if you ate candy and didn't like the taste, you'd hop on social media and say 'This is bad!' Maybe you imagine that the company will change it's formula with enough 'this is bad' commentation, despite a healthy number of people enjoying the candy. Or maybe you just feel proud to have not liked something? Metaphors are never as acute as we need. I don't see how the Q&A would have 'been better' if it had different people standing next to the ones with questions. This one certainly felt better than any other year mainly because the person holding the mic -also- had questions. If it was a Blizzard Employee standing there, what would have changed?For me, The Weekly Reset was phenomenal. Best one yet. Taliesin is my spirit animal, and I loved that they did a live show.
Google Chris Hemsworth (Legion) and then Luke Hemsworth (BFA) and you'll get the joke and why it was a little mean.. but kinda accurate.
I LOVED Seeing Taliesin and Evitel doing the Q&A, and I hope they do a live show again next year and invite more fans to be in their studio audience!Also...Taliesin Was Right is Now Canon and I could not be more giddy over it.
This was so much fun to watch! Loved hearing the audience reactions!
I unintentionally made the biggest face of disbelief when she said she didn't feel like their were retcons. Over the last year they've been retconning stuff all the way back to Wrathgate, over a decade of WoW lore, just to force stuff for Shadowlands. It's not only been a lengthy assassination of character, but an assassination of any reason people have to really care about the lore of the game when it's all up for grabs to be changed, sometimes within the life of an expansion, just to do what they want to do rather than make something that makes sense.
I've got nothing against them personally but this episode was cringey as hell, Q&A wasn't too bad though.
Great show, fun to watch and provided a good recap!
I got to attend this and it was literally the highlight of my Blizzcon, I hope they do it again next year. It is a joy to watch them geek out over what I geek out over. They handled the Q&A with such grace and class and were really funny. Tali's own questions were great too. I hope they do it again next year. Also it was great getting a pic with you too Perculia!
Indeed one of the best shows, I've seen.Liked the Q&A and the way he handled a potentially tense moment.-
Love it this weekly episode! its so Epic !
Can we have a way to filter this off main page? Im able to block clickbait on my youtube but it keeps showing up here.
I'm not a fan of T&E but I ended up thinking that Evitiel was pleasant and professional with the Q&A. I don't really like Taliesen or the show as a whole, but I would've changed my mind about him if he'd doubled-down on the PvP Vendor question that he almost asked. If he didn't couch it in that nonsense about how a hippo mount was a significant indicator of an Alliance victory, we might have had an answer to something people really, really want to know.
I was curious how the live episode would turn out. But it was yet another fun episode to watch. Keep up the good work Taliesin & Evitel!
Calling Sylvanas' full confirmation that she's not a good person an "assassination of character" is ridiculous, she hasn't been a good person for a long while, we get a few glimpses of that even in Wrath of the Lich King. Them saying that she was behind Wrathgate isn't a huge surprise and felt like something she is certainly capable of. She calls her own people "arrows in her quiver" aka disposable and easily launched at the enemy. In Pit of Saron, the leader of the slaves you freed gives a big thankful speech about you freeing them and how he's going to spread word of what you've done so everyone can now how great a person you are, gets nuked by Sindragosa and all she says about it is that she was glad someone shut him up. Like, wtf, guy's happy he's freed from slavery to undead and is expressing his gratitude and he dies during his thanks and you just thank the undead dragon for getting him to stop talking?
