  1. Dear EJ and Raven,

    I had to tell you about the exchange I just had with my 11-year old son. Occasionally, but not too often, we listen to GGW in the car while driving to and from dance lessons, boy scouts, etc.. Consequently, Dan has heard the show off and on.

    Today he glanced at my computer screen,and I had another podcast vod up on the screen (The Angry Chicken). He asked if that was the swearing one.

    I said “What??”
    Dan said “we sometimes listen to girls gone wow in the car, and they have the one that says brilliant and the one that swears”.

    So there you have it. That could be your tagline – we are brilliant, and we swear.

    Just thought I’d pass that along. Love the show, and don’t stop swearing. I LOVE IT when Raven says “fuck”. It’s just something about it…



  2. A Casual Players View – This is NOT every casual players view JUST MY OWN

    So, I know that this is probably going to get me strung up and burned at the stake, get words like “n00b” or “Troll” or whatever term is trending now thrown my way, but I just can’t help myself…. I‘ve been playing World of Warcraft since April 2005. I am a casual player and have been since the beginning. I play as often and as much as possible, but with a job, a mortgage and a life I don’t get to play as often as I’d like. I played a lot early on in Vanilla, BC and Wrath (my personal favorite) but played less in Cata and even less in MoP – which I’m now regretting because I’m finding MoP to be refreshing take on the content. However, since the release of WoD I have really gotten back into the game. I have also really gotten into the social media aspect of the game; no not fucking Twitter, but rather via podcasts, forums, etc. and I have to say that this “community” that everyone speaks of related to WoW is full of shit. I say this from my OWN experiences. Everyone wants to complain and cry and say mean hateful things about the game and Blizzard and players such as me and it’s simply comical in a way, but just sad in another.
    I’ve never raided or run dungeons. Well, I can’t say “never”, I have but thanks to this “community” I lost interest in it very quickly. I’ve had very few pleasant encounters with other players and I am a very happy, personable and positive person. I have donated to groups, volunteered, assisted players and every time I’ve been burned. The one raid I went on they had already cleared everything and I was invited to kill The Litch King, so I don’t call that raiding because all I did was run around and spam heals. My only other raiding experiences I was talked down to so much, so often and in such derogatory fashion (I was a healer and of course everything was my fault) that it ruined that content for me, so I never went back. It’s the same thing for dungeons. I’ve had experiences where all the loot was taken and the player left the group or right before the achievement dropped I was kicked for NO REASON and was told, it was for no specific reason other than to just do it. To me, that was over the line! How does this in any way make your precious “community” a commodity that is now missing from WoW? I have missed out on all new content when released and don’t have all the cool stuff that goes along with raiding because the community took it from me. Now, I know, that’s my choice not to raid and you can’t blame society for your choices and blah, blah, blah. But because the community has made my experiences so toxic, can you blame me? Would you want to continue to take abuse from total strangers on daily basis when you are also putting your precious time and money into a game? I mean, i’m not the best player in the world, however I’ve spent the past 9 years learning my class, rotation and studying add-ons, mechanics and game play , sooooo I’m pretty sure I know what i’m doing.
    Now everyone at this point throws out the Guild card….Let’s talk guilds. I’ve been in almost 20 different guilds. I’ve have yet to find a guild with the sense of “community” and comradery that everyone these days is yelling has been removed from the game. They’ve either all fallen apart because “friends” and “family” couldn’t play well together, the owners have completely abandoned the guild or they became so strict that I can’t to be a part of it because i’m not a hardcore player. I’m currently in a guild with great perks and that’s basically it because, to me, that’s all guilds are good for now. I try to talk and no one answers. I try to assist but no one cares. And it’s not the server because I’ve moved several servers and it’s that same fucking thing no matter where you go.
    Now let’s talk the game and Blizzard. First off, I don’t work for Blizzard, I don’t know anyone who does, I’m simply a fan for their products. I listen every week to podcasts and read forums where players blast the games content or lack thereof and speak poorly about marketing strategy and lack of communication with their customers….frankly it’s mind-blowing to me because I, being a casual player, absolutely love the game for what it is, a game. The lore alone is enough to floor you let alone the game design. It’s simply amazing. The characters and weapons and environment, I simply cannot see how anyone doesn’t marvel at the screen every time they fire up the game. The mechanics of the fights (which I’ve watched on YouTube) are so cool and look so fantastic. The facts that you can have a pet follow you around and fight for you or battle another vanity pet…. It’s why I love the product and keep coming back. To anyone who wants to bash the game and it’s developers, what have you done with your life that even comes close? I’m not a gamer, so maybe I’m way out of my element here Donny, but why is everything I hear and read after the first 2 months of a new release nothing but whiny, negative stuff about the game? The hard is too hard. The easy is too easy. The daily routines and content are boring. I mean come on! There is SO much to do in the game that even attempting to explain the game to loved ones is a marathon, boring them into a coma a few minutes in. Now, I do understand the commitment it takes to play the game. I do understand the time, money and personal resources it takes to play the game and when a person invests that much into anything, much less a game, their passion usually boils to the top. I get that. But what I don’t get is, and what seems to be, the negative majority view of the game and company coming from it’s beloved “community”. Again, this is what I AM hearing and this is MY perception. Unfortunately each of our own perceptions is reality and my reality is this:
    I love the game
    I respect the company and developers
    I am captivated by the game every time I log in – Stop and look around once in a while
    I am not a believer in the community aspect
    I’ve missed out on some of the most compelling content in the game because of the “community”
    Most players are in it for themselves and not to help you
    No one wants to take the time to help other players develop within the game because if you ask any sort of question, you’re immediately a “Troll”
    The majority of users providing feedback or comments (not as bad as League of Legends) are assholes and PLEASE shut up about flying already
    No one can tell you how to play the game
    I am exactly why Garrisons, Pet Battles and dailies are relevant
    I am a casual player.

    • I’m sorry that you haven’t had a positive experience especially with other players. I’ve had plenty of negative experiences myself and mostly do content on my own but even then, I’ve managed to have good experiences and met a few nice people that I can play with.

      Finding a good guild is hard, sure, I get that. But from what you wrote, I’m pretty sure that you’re not in an active one but small or dead guilds that recycle through players quickly. The rule pretty much is that If you’re not applying for guilds online, then you’re not in a decent guild.

      Also, I think you might want to start pruning back the podcasts and media that you’re listening to if all that you’re hearing is negative feedback that you’re not interested in. I agree that WOW is amazing and I’ll always look fondly upon it but it doesn’t mean that everyone who has a criticism of the game is doing it solely just to be negative.

      However, the game is what you make of it and so is the community. Sure, there are assholes everywhere but if EVERYONE in the game is an asshole then you might want to check and see if you’re not the person being the asshole.

    • I’m really sorry that you’ve had such a terrible experience with the community. Unfortunately there are some bad apples that can spoil the bunch if you let them – especially in places like looking for raid and random dungeons. And being a healer is especially painful (I know because I am one). When the group is doing well the party chat is dead silent – and when the tank keeps dying because he can’t kite mobs out of the bad stuff it’s your fault for not healing well enough. Believe me, I feel the pain.

      But just because there are trolls doesn’t mean there aren’t great people. Official forums have a lot of trolls spamming messages, and sending people hate messages. But if you can look past that there are some wonderful people there. I’m going to talk about a post that was on the forums a couple days ago because it’s fresh in my mind.

      Someone decided they wanted to make an Illidari Demon Hunter guild, and posted a message on the boards that was basically “I am starting a Demon Hunter guild and raising the Illidari. Come join me! Pst for details.”

      With the announcement of Legion, Demon Hunters are a hotly debated topic, and the expected trolls came in for the attack, along with the defenders that trolled back the trolls. A massive flame war errupted, with people accusing the OP of roleplaying wrong, others saying that it was the OPs fifteen dollars so he could do what he wants so all the haters should go screw themselves, etc. And I can’t say that anyone was excited about the guild…

      But. If you read past the flame wars there were people that were providing honest and productive criticism and thoughts. People that pointed out possible ways to wrap the lore around the subject, people that warned him about the hot nature of Demon Hunters in the present community but urged him to expand on his idea and present his vision to the community as more than a one word message. And there was a good conversation about what makes guild leaders good. It would be easy to get caught up in the drama, the vocal minority, and not see past it.

      As for the state of the game, I think you will find that most people still love logging into Azeroth. For many of us it is like a second home, and it is the reason that we sit around with friends every week and record our adventures and discuss the time spent in game. We talk about leveling our alts, about pet battle strategies, about game lore and role-playing. World of Warcraft holds a special place in our heart, and it probably always will.

      But the idea that we should respect the game because we couldn’t design anything better is flawed. We live in a world of specializations. I couldn’t design an MMO if my life depended on it, yet alone create a world as vibrant and beautiful as Azeroth. But I can probably tell you a lot more about retirement plans and how to build a secure financial future than any of the developers. We have spent years learning different things. And if I sat down with one of the developers and gave bad investment information, you bet they would criticize me – and they would have every right to do so.

      Which brings me to that nature of criticism. I love World of Warcraft, but I do think that Warlords especially has had some problems – and I firmly believe that the community should be expressing those feelings. Again, not in the way that the vocal minority does by swearing and flaming, but by providing honest and sincere opinions. PVP has been out of balance almost all expansion, driven by a human racial trait that was leagues better than any other. Professional pvpers flocked to Alliance so they could better min max their characters, people that follow professionals followed because it’s what they are “supposed” to do to be good, and the Horde is left with a tiny group of untrained individuals that will really struggle in battlegrounds. That’s a problem. And a lot of people have flamed about it. But a lot of other people have laid out the reasons it’s bad – and ways they think that it could be fixed.

      In Legion Blizzard is completely revamping the pvp experience. It’s very possible they would have anyways, but then again it’s very possible they wouldn’t have realized there was a problem without people speaking out. MMOs are unique in the sense that they are always in development. Other games are balanced and don’t get tweaked for balance problems. But MMOs have developers looking for problems, and looking for innovative ways to fix them. And it’s part of the job of the community to speak up when things don’t feel right in a respectful and constructive way.

  3. Hi GGW,

    I listen to you guys as regularly as I can. Recently I have had a bit of issue with jobs and listening to anything. Now three jobs later, I have been listening to my podcast catching up on things.
    In my efforts to listen, I have the phone bluetoothed to my car radio and playing out the car speakers. I take my girls to school in the morning and so they listen to you guys for short periods of time. While I was listening to you gals one morning Raven says if you want to be interviewed to contact you gals. Both my girls immediately said I should get on the show. I laughed and said I would at least write.
    And that is what I am doing, writing in. Not sure why you would have me on, being an unknown in the community in general. I would think it would be fun, because I find you gals quite entertaining and enjoyable. You brighten my day.
    Well, I think that’s all for now. Keep up the good work.

  5. Hello!

    I am back into WOW after being gone for about a year. I am a Math teacher so during the school year I don’t have much time to play, but I am always looking forward to the summers were I could get back into the world even if I spend most of my time playing catch up.

    However I starting to get more and more aggravated at the players who are constantly bringing players down in PVP or in random dungeons. It makes me question if I really want to keep playing in a game environment that mirrors so much of the high school drama that goes on with my 14-18 year old students. There is a huge cyber bulling problem in wow that is going on and I can’t help of thinking of my younger self in this environment. Would I be able to brush it off like I do now? Or would it actually effect(affect….I forget) me to were I would no longer think I am good enough to play.

    Do you every feel like enough is enough when you are playing with players like this? Or do you think that this is just part of the game and more causal, part-time players need to suck it up.


  6. Hi GGW,

    Sadly there has not been much WOW this week. I am emailing in asking for positive vibes you can send us in the states this week. Like I have said before I am high school teacher and I live in Chicago. This week in school has been the hardest week of teaching I have ever had because of the election situation going on in the states. There is a since of change going on and not in a good way. My students and the teacher are alike are scared.

    Thank you for being on air. You have been one bright spot in this week. Thank you for making me smile. I will keep listening even if wow has to take a back burner right now.

    A saying going around right is. “Time to buy a good pair of shoes. Time to march.”

    Thank you again,
