What’s Life For

A million stars up in the sky
We watch them live, we watch them die
Now who can tell how this will be?
Now are we fools when we believe?

So listen

I never felt like this before
And i feel no guilt for wanting more
I’ll take all my chances here with you
And i can tell you feel it too
So let’s not hide it, i won’t hide it anymore
Who knows what life is for?

So take my hand
We’ll make this happen
It’s real, i’m in love with you

And then you stepped out of my screen
I’m awake inside my dream
Tears roll backwards to the light
A rush of love, i feel alive

So listen

I’m in the back waiting for you
And i can tell you feel it too
So let’s not hide it, i won’t hide it anymore
Who knows what life is for?

So take my hand
We’ll make this happen
It’s real, i’m in love with you

A million stars up in the sky
Now can you tell me which one am i?
I never felt like this before
And my heart keeps wanting more
Then let’s not hide it, i won’t hide it anymore
Who knows what life is for?

So take my hand
We’ll make this happen
It’s real, i’m in love with you

Genial..

An open letter to Chris Metzen

Dear Chris Metzen, I’m a World of Warcraft player since the early begginings, Today I still remember ordering 2 copies from Amazon of a new recently launched game called World of Warcraft which I played for like 2 hours on trial account before ordering the game… Yes.. was that fast…

 

Since then I’ve been through all expansions, TBC,WOTLK and Cataclysm watching and feeling every single change on the class I’ve played.

And now.. some time before a new expansion set to release I’ve came across again to a big change on not mine but all classes of the game…

 

After getting home from work yesterday, I’ve turned on my PC and suddently had some friends asking me if I was watching the free live stream of blizzcon… I rapidly fired up my browser and started watching… You’re on the stage talking presenting Myst of Pandarian. My first thought? “Damn I have to buy the damn Virtual Ticket I have a feeling this is gonna be awesom… and there I went as as bullet. While I was buying it and struggling with some problems logging back to battle.net website again I’ve saw the announcement of the 12month subscription… My though was once again “damn I’m gonna do it also”.

 

So all this takes me to the reason of this letter. I and so many more original players, and recent ones, are gonna stick with you another year at least. Coming from where I come 12 months is a lot of game time. I’m counting at least with an expansion and 1 patch to it at least..

 

Tom Chilton talked about wanting to make players feel unique again through the change of talents and the way they work, let me focus something here… You’re insight on the subject surpasses any opinion I, or any common mortal can have on the subject. You’re the ones looking at numbers and to what players do on the game.  Changing the talents mechanics, and I’m not saying they’re better or worse, that’s something that everyone has to see and use for itself and then make a judgment of it and provide it to all of you at Blizzard as a constructive feedback.

 

But to me the “uniqueless” on WoW is a bit long gone… I remember when I was on my level 60 warrior on Ironforge (don’t worry I’ve opened my eyes and I’m playing Horde now J ) and looking at a guy passing me in a different way than all the others players… “Damn that guy is a Shadow Priest.. wow…” or even looking at a DPS Warrior with full epic items. Back then Priests where meant to Heal, warriors where meant to tank. I’ve had a lot of discussions with my GM (who still plays also as far as I know) about being DPS and not PROT. That change of spec was what make players to me special, that was what made me look at someone and think, all the raid members (40) that raid with him are OK and happy with his choice. Or  even all those 39 others raid members depende on THAT prot warrior THAT guy can’t fail… I was never in the situation of being THAT guy but as I grew up on the game itself I’ve come to realize that the feeling I had was totally gone.

 

Dual Spec killed all the ideas of being special by talents choices, right now you look at a shadow priest and think: “That guy click’s a button and its holy”or a tank that does more DPS than a low geared party member… I’ve really liked the good old days.

 

Don’t worry Chris, I wont make this open letter in some kind of begging for the return of old days. I’ve just asking you to be carefull once again with all the choices you’re making to bring back all the old players who quitted.

 

Pandarian… well Pandas… Pandas are really cute, I mean having a char doing the Ryu/Ken kick.. OMFG I want it so much… I’m really looking forward to this next expansion, I hope the raids and dungeons really can keep up with it, if they can compete with LK HC fight.. Or even the good old Nefarian fight on BWL that at a time I couldn’t really see my char (I was a dwarf so you got to understand that sentence) under the all the other mobs…

 

All I’m asking is bring back the fun we had back then, bring back the game that wasn’t that focused on getting new players but on providing an richier experience to his players than anyother game on the market.. In my opinion that was what made the subscrition numbers go up in the sky, that was what made you sucesseful.. nothing else.. Wasn’t content, wasn’t pets or mounts that you could buy from AH or a website… Was the experience and fun the players had while playing.. That is what I come here asking you to bring back in Myst of Pandarian….

 

Just one more thing, can you explain me why everytime I see you on stage I have to remember in a mix of Steve Jobs and Woz back in the days? I mean Steve (RIP) dedication to his projects in life and Woz eternal teenage spirit?

 

 

PS: Buff arcane mages ok? Thanks!

 

 

Sincerely

A long time World of Warcraft Player….

 

 

2 Meses depois

Lembrei-me que tenho um blog… É verdade, já por diversas vezes tinha comprometido comigo mesmo a actualizar regularmente este blog, mas sempre por uma razão ou por outra falhei esse compromisso.. Parece que desta vez foi mais uma…

Entre trabalho e problemas pessoais não tive muito tempo para o fazer, nem vontade… Muitas vezes apetecia-me escrever para desabafar mas no entanto nunca achei apropriado vir para aqui dizer o que me ia na alma… Então como sempre mantive as ideias lá..

2 Meses depois lá se foram as eleições, lá se foi o futebol (que volta hoje por acaso) e cá vieram as férias, para alguns pelo menos, visto que este ano se tiver férias apenas devem ser para Outubro.

Este ano os meses de Julho/Agosto não me parecem iguais, porquê não sei… Talvez seja o tempo que não tem ajudado em nada… Ora está  Sol ora está a chover… O ano passado por esta altura penso que já tinha ido à praia 1 ou 2 vezes este ano nem o cheiro do mar senti. Tenho de o fazer urgentemente.

Não foi só a praia que fica para trás este ano, apesar de ter comprado uma bicicleta nova este ano devido ao novo horário de trabalho torna-se dificil ir dar as voltinhas ao fim do dia. E ao fim de semana.. bem.. os fim de semana são para tentar descansar… sim tentar.. nos últimos que tive o descanso foi substituido por aborrecimentos… enfim.. Quem anda à chuva molha-se e eu muito sinceramente… estou farto de estar encharcado…
