  1. Tank Go Boom

    There can be little doubt that Blizzard's now infamous command for the World of Warcraft playerbase to "bring the player, not the class" is likely seen around the Irvine offices as a colossal PR headache -- it is no wonder Ghostcrawler found it necessary to cease posting to the forums recently and instead communique is frequently relayed down a one-way street of blog posts and announcements. ...

    Certainly this isn't a decision unique to just Vox Immortalis, but it was unique for us at the time as we were drastically transitioning from ...
