Blizzard redefines the term Grind
Jan 09, 2006 22:33:00

No doubt you have heard of the "dynamic server-wide quest" in World of Warcraft's 1.9 patch. In order to obtain entrance to a couple of new raid zones, the Horde and Alliance must work together to collect a bunch of valuable material do, uh, do something with it, aside from what they normal would have done. or something...

Blizzard is keeping track of the server progress so we can all see how we're doing.

Based on the charts, this quest should be completed on a few servers by mid-week. I'm almost surprised there hasn't been any boycotting. The blog community certainly hasn't been very receptive to this quest. Thus far I think Cesspit summed it up best, calling the incident The Biggest Collective Masturbatory Act Ever. Yep, that sounds about right.

In a surprising and refreshingly creative turn of events, a guild on Hyjal is offering rewards for the "citizens" who help the effort.
