• Patch 4.3 poll!

    And here we go again.... a new patch, a new start, a new race!

    I'm going to be posting a series of updates once the race gets underway (starting today on the American servers!) but I wanted to start us off on the official "boring" day with a poll about what you're looking forward to. And for those of you grumps out there who aren't looking forward to anything, you can vote that way too!

  • Website design changes

    As you probably have noticed, we have done some tweaking and polishing around the site to make it more accessible and readable. There is still work to be done, and all the features haven't been completed yet. We'll add more as we go along. We hope you enjoy the design.

    And remember, feedback is always welcome and appreciated.

  • Research and raiding

    Our academic friends Ladan and Zeotrix aka Sebastian Lundmark haven't been idling this fall. Both of them have published some very interesting content from raider's perspective.

    First of all Zeotrix has finished his thesis which takes a closer look on how gaming together affects us. Last winter and fall people from this site (among with some other people) were asked to particiapte in the study twice, and the results are here. Zeotrix describes his work:

  • Skull of Gul'dan lorecorner - War of the Ancients trilogy

    Now with the recent patchnotes for 4.3 were released containing information from the End Time, Hour of Twilight, Well of Eternity, and of course the Dragon Soul, I thought I'd get this started. And I'm talking about hc lore. Even when my guild mates tease me with comments like "make sure you don't watch the rp during the quest line, we won't wait", I'm the kind of player that enjoys the story part of World of Warcraft as well.

  • Pizza, mountain dew, and nachos....

    Crumbs strewn over his stale t-shirt; crumpled cans of energy drink lay about; you can see evidence in the gamer's beady eyes of the early onset of sugar/salt-related dementia; the requisite unmade bed sits in the background... the gamer begins to resemble his food: beige, tasteless, and incoherent.


    Or are we? Obviously the afore-posted video is an example of a stereotype on steroids. Sure some of us might let the deskspace get a little messy... or even resort to what's known as board chow ( from time to time. Yes, that's what you get when you turn your keyboard over and shake out the crumbs (?). I suppose you could call it a kind of cooking.

  • Paragon and our associates - together we are more

    It hasn't always been easy going forward, keeping on raiding with our eyes set on getting world first kills and being as good as we can ever be. During the last 3 years we have been able to see things none of us would have imagined to see, go to places we just dreamed of, and met people we didn't know existed.
