MMO-Champion - Moderator Recruitment Update, Season 9 Models, Daily Blink
Moderator Recruitment Update / Off-Topic Forums
The review of moderator applications is now finished! It definitely took much longer than expected and we almost got 400 applications from users who wanted to help, about 40 of them will be accepted and promoted as moderator in a few days.

People who are accepted as a moderator will receive a private message from me with more details on what to do. If we refused your application please do not take it personally, we refused some of them for tons of various reasons, in a lot of cases good posters didn't make it because they weren't active enough on forums, etc ... I'm still glad that so many people applied to help on the forums and even if you didn't make it, your efforts are appreciated.

The increased amount of moderators will allow us to make sure that things stay under control on forums and should allow a couple of extra features that I couldn't deploy earlier without causing total chaos. The amount of users and posts on the forum increased dramatically over the past few weeks and I'm glad that more and more people are joining our little community!


During the next few days, the Cataclysm and World of Warcraft forums will be merged in a single category after the release of the expansion. Hopefully, I will also have some time to expand the Off-Topic forum section and I'll try to find a way to make them accessible from the front page. (Probably with a simple filter on the latest forum posts box, or something like that)

Also, if you want to see extra WoW or Off-Topic forums, now might be the right time to bring it up in the comments of this news post.


Season 9 - PvP Armor Sets Final Preview
Someone pointed out that I never posted a preview of the final models of the Season 9 Armor Sets, I'll probably have time to do multi-races at some point but I'm not going to promise it, I still have tons of work to do before the release of the expansion. (Also, I'm pretty sure the Rogue set is still bugged ... not sure if that's a bug on my side or not, can't seem to fix it)

Season 9 - Male

Season 9 - Female

"What Wrath players need to know to not suck at Cataclysm"
Daetur posted a very interesting post on the forums: What Wrath players need to know to not suck at Cata! I'm not going to front page the whole thing but you might want to read it if you're not sure if you will survive Cataclysm's raiding.



The Daily Blink - Mage Monopoly
I don't think I ever posted something from The Daily Blink, their comics are usually decent and I'll try to feature them on the front page more often in the future.

    I thought there will be more colors split by rating. Not just two.

    Did I just read 40 new moderators? That seems... Kind of desperate honestly. I dont have any numbers regarding amount of actively posting people here on the forum but 40 seems like what... Half of people who post regurarly and have some amount (500, 700+) of posts? But oh well, maybe I am way off...

    Gratz to everyone who got accepted (and doesnt know it yet >:-)

    You're way off. Way, way off.

    Boubouille, I suggest you give any website you feature on the front page a big heads-up. The Daily Blink got mmo-champion'd!

    most of the new people on the forum are 2nd, 3rd and 4th accounts because people get banned.

    Having an actual offtopic forum, as in the kind that isn't restricted to just Music/Video/VideoGames/Computers, would be awesome. Maybe even politics could be discussed, but with heavy moderation of course.

    I agree with Rainofpain, a book forum wouldn't be bad at all
    Would probably be my new place to be.

    An offtopic where anything goes (within reason), where anyone can chat and socialise could be nice. Sort of a meta-offtopic.

    Death Knight pvp helm =LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL!!!!!
    That DK helm has to be the goofiest piece of armor I have seen in WoW.

    And once again Cata Paladin armor looks stupid. The whole bird beak look is not doing it for me. Here's hoping the next tier of pve, and pvp is a big improvement.

    I feel bad for paladins. Have they ever had a good-looking PvE or PvP set?

    o.o

    That just shows how different opinions can be. I thought T8 Paladin was the worst one out of all 10.

    The helmet reminds me of Nightslayer, and it was the best rogue set ever.

    Swap the warlock and druid pvp gear, and it may blow your mind.
    Why are warlocks gettiing gear that looks like that, it doesnt make sense to me.

    Daetur's post is a great read, however I'm still convinced the first few months into Cata will be hell in LFD; run with guildies only at first, imo.
