20 Answers From Matt

But for those of you that do, head over to Brigwyn’s blog. If I time it correctly, the interview should be posted (he told me 3 AM PST). I managed to sneak some time in to answer a few questions he had about myself and my work.

This link should work.

Here’s a preview:

There are many who feel that the Official Forums are basically a vile pit of nastiness that may put out an occasional golden nugget.  Do you ever visit and post? If not, is there a way for Blizzard to improve upon this?

No and I attribute that to a lack of time. I’m either busy reading, writing, or raiding. The times I do visit the forums is when a blue post is made that I need to take a look at. Blizzard provides the facilities where people can discuss and present ideas. It’s up to the people to not abuse that right. You can’t realistically expect Blizzard to reach out at players from the monitor and slap them around whenever players write something moronic. It is difficult for people to change. You put a 15 year old behind a screen and give them a keyboard, and they’ll say the rudest and destructive stuff without caring what people will think of them. You put a 15 year old in front of a linebacker, and he won’t say anything short of "hello Mister". Until Blizzard hires 11 million goons to moderate the activities of players, there’s not much Blizzard can improve.

I’m supposed to be guest appearing on a podcast sometime at the end of the week, too. I think. The host, she hasn’t gotten back to me yet. Who knows?

Speaking of podcasts, have you listened to the Rawrcast? They’re a relatively new podcast. Just yesterday they released their 5th episode.

On a side note, podcasting powerhouse Medros is about to hit his 100th podcast. I think that’s tomorrow.

  1. Good answers but the only thing I have a thing to say about is Blizzard forums 😉

    Last time I check Blizzard’s priest forum I was so disappointed with the content that I actually wrote down the “hottest” topics on the first page. The result:
    – “Rate the Priest name above you!” created by a priest named Wambulance (I mean… seriously.. you expect points?)
    – “Are Priests still bottom of the food chain?”
    – “I want my lost mana back!”
    – “Mind sear is crap, designer brainless?”

    On top of that, one cannot ask or answer a question without getting bashed into the ground by players with self-proclaimed supremacy because they have 10 more spell power or raided one tier higher.

    Until Blizzard hires 11 million goons to moderate the activities of players, it’s unlikely I’ll visit their forum a lot. That is why I set out to find another healing community and found http://www.plusheal.com. It was like… heaven, reaching out for me and Saint Peter opened the door wide open for me (although I had to bribe him).

  2. A pleasure and thank you. I cannot wait until the podcast! 🙂
