Dual A-bombs this week, sorry to be a negative Nancy.
--
First A-bomb to FFXIV's BLU not being able to que for dungeons. I get that there are solo players in mmos, but a whole class shouldn't be relegated to that. Just stupid.
--
A second A-bomb to Trove and Defiance still getting livestreams, and Trove getting a content drop, while Rift doesn't even get new Fae Yule fluff. Not surprised, just annoyed that so far, I've been right.
--
For the question of the week: Another battle royale. /eyeroll.

Daybreak announced PlanetSide battle royal. What do I think? I think i'm kind of surprised that Daybreak is still a thing :)

A-bomb to the Heroes of the Storm Announcement,the fact that they took developers away from the game and absolutely killed HGS (there e-sport competition), witch was the only e-sport that i actually enjoyed watching ,i'm sad, disappointed, upset ,but mostly because i know the game has just entered the first circle of hell, and there is no going up from here , only down, what a shame , this game is the only competitive game i enjoy ,but i doubt it's going to survive 2019 .
QOTW : Wtf is that ? That's just planetside 2 with another game mode , really and they expecting people to buy that , how ? are they also going to shut down planetside 2 just so people are going to buy planetside 2 + 1 update ?
