For Me, Summer Hath Ended

Things may get sparse around here for the next three months. Football season has officially begun (for Indiana High Schools anyway). As a volunteer coach at the varsity level, I'm kept pretty busy. It's a lot of work, but a lot of fun.

The downside is that gaming takes a back seat. I think LoL will be easy to squeeze in a game here or there, but I'm not sure how much I'll have to write about. We'll see how it goes.

MoP looks like it's going to come out right smack in the middle of our season. GenCon Indy is also coming up. I'm sure I'll find ways to experience both.

I'm going to try my darnedest to dig into Warlock stuff once MoP hits. Since I started this blog, it's pretty much been my non-official policy to wait for things to go live before I really delve into them. Part of that was the lack of access earlier in WoW. These days, it seems like open beta is more hype than testing, and by the time something has gone live, others have already hashed it out. Doesn't work well for me because I actually prefer to wait until release. Call it old fashioned, or something. I just can't really get excited for extended beta play when it's all going to be reset or changed.

For what it's worth, I don't re-watch many books or movies. Even favorites. I suppose I just find it hard to re-bottle lightning. Diff'rent strokes and all that.

The point is that I want to fully experience something... once. That's it. I don't want to waste the good surprise on beta. I think it makes me a sucky Warlock blogger, though. There are plenty of others that will cover what I do not, and then what do I have to add?

The good news is that I've never really held myself within the delusion that y'all are coming here to be told how to play your class. Likely, you get plenty of that elsewhere. People come to KeS for the attitude and the atmosphere. (So maybe I just need to wear more flair). Thus, I'll be writing about MoP when it drops. If it's all a repeat to you, hopefully it's at least an entertaining repeat. That's all I can offer.

I suppose I just wanted to write this post today to reaffirm the direction of the blog. I've been writing a lot about other games, but once there are live, new things to talk about in WoW... I don't plan on ditching. Now, if MoP sucks... eh, I'll still call myself a Warlock and write here. It's fun, and writing is simply what I do.

Thanks for making it worth something by reading.


  1. Locks are Lazy. Mages never rest. That's cool your a football coach, was one of my dreams to be one too, but no time really.

  2. Dude at least you are still writing. I haven't had the urge (or time for that matter) to get a post out. At this point no one even remembers I have a blog or that I once wrote about warlocks. I am just glad your blog will still be a constant source. :)

  3. @Rivs - I was fortunate enough to get involved with a pretty neat program that needed my help, even if I wasn't able to be there as much as a full-time coach. It's worked out great for everyone, and I consider myself quite lucky. It's not an easy thing to be able to fit into an already busy life.

    @D&H - Yep, I'll keep churning 'em out. At this point, I don't think I can stop :-). Really, though, I've just met so many great people through this that I feel bad when I can't write... I don't to lose all those connections. Not that people would just run away, but you probably know what I mean.

  4. You'll never lose me, I'm always available to come by and drink your beer.
