Blizzard Launches Restaurant With Shitty Servers

. . . 

“The servers here are awful, just the worst,” said diner Richard Hall to reporters. “They’re sluggish, inattentive, and probably worst of all, they’re just not willing to improve at all. The biggest tragedy is the food here is actually really great. This could be the best place in town if the front of the house could get their heads out of their asses.”

World of Warcraft In-Game Currency Worth More Than Venezuelan Currency

According to The Blaze, the Venezuelan bolivar has been so devalued that it is now worth less than a single gold piece in World of Warcraft.

Venezuelan resident and Twitter user @KalebPrime first made the discovery July 14 and tweeted at the time that on the Venezuela’s black market — now the most-used method of currency exchange within Venezuela according to NPR — you can get $1 for 8493.97 bolivars. Meanwhile, a “WoW” token, which can be bought for $20 from the in-game auction house, is worth 8385 gold per dollar.

According to The Blaze, this contrasts with May 2017 when–while still heavily devalued–$1 would only net you 279 bolivars.

Maduro and Chávez turned out to be the real world bosses.


Lately I have been playing way too much World of Warcraft. Like a lot of people, I abandoned the game a few months after Warlords of Draenor was released in November 2014. But Legion has made the game fun again, and I’ve been logging 50-60 hours a week in-game.

Anyway, ran across SimpleArmory.Com which, as its name suggests, is a simplified version of Blizzard’s WoW Armory. It has all the same information, just presented with a much more accessible design.

The one thing SimpleArmory adds is that if you click on any achievement, missing collectable, etc., the site will redirect you to the entry for that particular piece of content.
