Hear Ye, Hear Ye!

Like the font color?

Good, cause you're gonna see a lot more of it soon!

Yes, that's right, Parallel Context is going to be an official mouthpiece of Blizzard.  You hear it here, it must be true!

There will be the occasional guest post by GC and others, but in general the three of us will be providing the WoW community with official updates that --due to our extensive readership-- will be disseminated more thoroughly than is currently possible on the WoW Forums.

One nice little side effect of this is that we can provide Blizz with suggestions that will be taken to the highest levels of development.  For example, my suggestion to prevent ninjas in a PuG --flipping a switch so that if a player drops group after a loot roll in an instance they will be unable to roll for loot for a one week period-- has been favorably received by the development staff, and a version of this upgrade will be in the 4.1 PTR shortly. 

We look forward to serving you in the future with timely, cogent updates on the game we all love:  Ultima Online!

EtA: I'd be remiss in pointing out that a few of my fellow WoW bloggers have similar momentous announcements for this Friday:

Rades at OrcishDraenic Army Knife

Vidyala at ManaliciousOrcalicious


  1. Woah! I seriously nearly fell for it :O this was a great aprils fools joke. It was a joke right? ;)

  2. Hah, I created the blog and even I fell for it...

    Wouldn't that have been sweet, though?!

  3. @Zinn and @Soul-- It would have been awesome if it were true; if nothing else, the idea of banning a ninja from rolling on loot would be good. Hard to implement though, without running into all sorts of contingencies.

    One of these days....
