what’s the Expansion gonna be called?

Wrath of the Lich Khan?


………to explore strange new worlds of warcraft

… and seek out new Sid Meier’s Civilizations…

…to boldy go where no Hello Kitty has gone before…

The Expose/Exploit system is one of the more creative things I’ve seen from MMO combat, but the bad thing is that ground combat is nothing but waiting for exposes, then exploiting. You stand there tapping the 1 key until you see that expose icon, hit G, hit 2, then go back to tapping 1. It’s really boring. I’ve let my AI Bridge Officers fight battles all by themselves and they always win.
