Well, D3 is now out, and as expected, it wrecked the population on the already low-pop server I'm on. Guild raids now often can't fill raid slots. Takes hours just to fill a BH10 pug, and so on.

Heard the launch was a disaster. I still find it ironic that people had to wait hours in login que just to play singeplayer. The game hasn't even been out a week and some people have already finished it.

Exit question: Has your guild or server suffered from D3's launch?

Heh, honestly, I nearly thought of something like that. Even though I did not believe it myself first. *g*

Now the plot thickens again and I reckon I find myself again waiting impatiently for the next page.

And regarding the exit question: I do not play WoW at the moment as I am waiting for my (freaking overpriced) D3CE.

Gasp!!!! It's a PLOT TWIST!!!! *Plot Twist Dance*

Yeah, as for D3, I also heard how fast people are beating it. I've heard that the campaign is Super short and Super easy (i've heard reports that it took 4 hours for people to beat campaign). I got to say, i'm kind've surprised to hear about the log-in backups. I can only imaging how bad it will be when SC2 HotS to come out.

Also, one last question: will this plot-line to the story reveal Sara's and Jyosette's back-stories? When you added some lore to Kleeyo's back-story, you mentioned you would do something for them too (aside from comic #2). Are you still planning on doing something like a separate plotline for them (please)?

*also, I like the bear-face design on jyosette's shoulderplates.

There will be a back-story. it will (mostly) focus on Sara

"I've seen the videos..." Now we know what Sara does in her spare time.. 9_9.

Good use of the negative image in panel six Clef! And Jyo's expression is super!

Q: Why does she have teddy bear buckles on her shoulder straps?

EDIT: Hang on... "Videos?" What videos? Which WoW race has video technology? The gnomes can take black & white photos, but I haven't seen anything further than that from either them or the goblins. The Draeni have hologram recordings, but they're too wholesome a race to be involved in porn. Speaking of which, it would be beneath the dignity of a taruen; they don't even have rogues. Unless the tauren(s) involved were enslaved or under mind control. :(

Doesn't have to be gnomes. the ethreals and the naaru brought holographic technology. There are tons of magical artifacts that have "memories" stored in them that play out little little movies when activated. Heck, there's even inscriptions on statues in the centers of giant floating cities that play entire mini-movies. Plenty of video capture abilities in that world.

Wait what did he just say!

I have also noticed the D3 launch, but actually among my friends the TSW beta weekend made the biggest impact.

Have not been playing regular WoW past week so no idea.

He does not have to be her "biological" father to be a father to her. The idea that humans and tauren can find love together is encouraging to me. Sara and Kleeyo overcame rivalry to become friends. Deeper relationships could happen.

Except with Blood Elves...they could never abide anyone but another blood elf.

There is still the outstanding question of how a human is a shaman (as assumed by the title 'earthmender') maybe he's a Tauren who factionchanged? (though ingame he wouldnt be able to be human cause humans cant be shamans). He probably IS Tallias biological father, as weird as that sounds. In any case, by the way she totally IGNORED him, Kleeyo obviously doesnt like him much. Looking foward to more, keep up the excellent work. :D

Our guild isn't done just because some silly demon is at it for the third time! *Launch was a disaster according to those in guild who tried.*
We plan on killing that not-so-epic dragon more!

ok as i read this something just clicked in ym head......... what if both talia's parents think that Sara is a bad idea for her to be a sqire? just some speculations

I don't play D3, but half my realid friends list does >.>

As for my server....yup, it died. Almost all the trolls and spammers have all but disappeared. Org is pretty much a ghost town and it's damn hard to get into a DS run. Reminds me of the old days when putting together a raid took longer than finishing it.

I gotta agree that having to be online to play the Diablo single player mode really is bad and following in a dangerous precident that games companies seem to be adopting, for a start it means you don't even really own the game, if Blizz (very very unlikely) goes bust you lose your game. Also it seems pretty overpriced.

Having to play the Diablo single player mode online*

Actually, considering that gentics from Orcs are compatible with Draenei, and the offspring is compatible with Humans, and that none of them even originated on the same PLANET, I'd say compatability is pretty much down to "is it a sapient humanoid".

One word: Med'an

LOL! the cute tauren calf has a human daddy?

I'm guessing he raised the calf as his own while Kleeyo was out killing and punting in service to the Horde.

I played Diablo 3(had to use a coding trick to get around the unsupported card BS), and I have a Barbarian. pretty badass really. Blizzard should have done pre-rendered backgrounds and not push on graphical horsepower though. I mean really. whe na video card that is about 2 years old isnt supported, that's pushing too far and alienating the player base.

still, despite my low FPS, D3 plays well, and I like it so far. I kinda wish though that I'd move faster.

Heh, they could have cleared BH10 while waiting for D3 to finish queuing...
Clef 21st May 2012, 3:04 PM edit delete reply
I think that's what a lot of them were doing -_-

I think i've figured it all out, but i won't say so to prevent spoilers :) (Not a way to say that i don't know it at all, i'm actually being serious) Woul be fun to have Clef's PM Adress so i can guess it if allowed :3
Clef 22nd May 2012, 5:35 AM edit delete reply
Comic fury has its own PM system. But I'm sure you'll find that this story will be no less predictable than the previous ones.
Flixthend 22nd May 2012, 5:57 AM edit delete reply
Does that mean that i am allowed to take a guess or do you despise that kinda thing?
Wurgel 26th May 2012, 6:09 PM edit delete reply
Well, my guess: teleportermissfuction. We all know what goblins think of save traveling devoces.
