The Weekly Marmot - Thinking Like a Designer
2010/09/23 at 1:21 AM
This week, I step back a little and examine game balance from a designer's perspective. What kind of thought process do they go through when they decide to make balance changes? What
they think about? And how does that differ from the ways in which players usually consider the game? How many times can my dog wander into the reflection on my poster in one episode? How ridiculously awful can a preview frame get?
Let's find out.

What's the difference between Patch 4.0 and Cataclysm? What kind of release timeframes can we expect? And what's the deal with "Patch 4.0.3"? These exciting questions and more will be answered (or at least have decent guesses aimed towards them) in this week's Weekly Marmot.

2010/09/09 at 1:51 PM
This week, I answer a question from
Damingo, the Prairie Dog Lord
(yeaaahhhhh...) and talk a bunch about end of expansion raiding from a raider's perspective. When you really want to raid but guilds keep falling apart around you, what options do you have? Do you just give up, or is there another way?
