Recommended Posts

If you're looking for an upgrade to your sitting habits, here come some awesome and official World of Warcraft faction-themed chairs! Secretlab have created an Alliance and Horde version, apparently "inspired by Stormwind and Orgrimmar", and if that's true you might be better off with the Ally version, due to the many spikes in the other one. The chairs themselves are priced at $450, with more expensive versions also available, but it's unclear whether those lose the WoW branding.

And here's the official press release:

Quote

OCTOBER 12, 2020 — Secretlab has teamed up with Blizzard Entertainment to create the first-of-its-kind officially licensed World of Warcraft® gaming chairs, styled after the Alliance and the Horde, the factions whose triumphs and conquests have shaped the world of Azeroth. Following the success of the official Overwatch® and D.Va Edition gaming chairs, Secretlab is taking inspiration from another epic Blizzard universe, giving gamers a new way to immerse themselves in the land of Azeroth and represent their chosen faction.

Launching in advance of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands — the upcoming expansion for Blizzard’s blockbuster MMO — the official Alliance and Horde seats will give gamers the comfort and support they need as they explore the Shadowlands and beyond.

Each chair has its own distinct aesthetic, reflecting the opposing factions of the Alliance and the Horde. Inspired by the grandeur of Stormwind City and the starkness of Orgrimmar, the new seats will give Alliance and Horde players respectively a chance to pay homage to their in-game allegiances.

The Secretlab Alliance Edition chair is upholstered in dark blue PRIME™ 2.0 PU leather and embellished with gold trimmings, royal braid motifs, and cream accents, evoking the opulence of Stormwind City, capital of the Alliance. Horde loyalists will appreciate the black and red leatherette of the Secretlab Horde Edition seat, which features the Horde banner draped over the rear, framed by the barbed spikes similar to those lining the rooftops of Orgrimmar.

The Secretlab World of Warcraft Alliance and Horde Edition chairs are equipped with all the features of the award-winning Secretlab 2020 Series. Engineered for all-day comfort and personalized ergonomic support, they will keep players comfortably seated for the duration of their gaming sessions as they compete to be the first in the world to defeat Sire Denathrius in Castle Nathria, the first raid of Shadowlands.

The Secretlab World of Warcraft Alliance and Horde Edition chairs are now available to pre-order for both the Secretlab OMEGA and Secretlab TITAN.

Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft is the world’s most popular subscription-based massively multiplayer online role-playing game. Set in the fantasy world of Azeroth, WoW® sends players on a journey of myth, magic, camaraderie, and endless adventure. World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, the game’s latest expansion, is coming this year. In Shadowlands, players will travel to the farthest reaches of Warcraft’s afterlife to confront its mysteries and contend with an ancient force of death that threatens to unravel reality. 
 

Said Ian Alexander Ang, co-founder and CEO of Secretlab: 

“World of Warcraft has historically been one of the most popular and difficult-to-master MMOs, with an audience that is among the most dedicated of any game — the world’s top guilds put a lot of effort into gearing up for a new raid and the final boss can remain undefeated for months at a time. The Secretlab World of Warcraft Alliance and Horde Edition chairs celebrate the game’s long history, expansive lore, and the sheer commitment of its players. They’ll support gamers comfortably for extended sessions as they dive into the Shadowlands, and being a blood elf rogue myself, I’ll be using the Horde variant. For the Horde!”

      Another announcement, another meme onslaught. This time around the Jailer seems to have gotten the brunt of it, as his appearance in the story video inspired many fan interpretations, with some amazing one and some with... genuinely frightening connotations.
      We'll start with my personal favorite, as it's the perfect It's Always Sunny meme and a pretty damn good Avengers one as well, so big congrats to dorm_five!

      After that excellent Dr. Strange/Khadgar crossover we move on to a more general one, as CD Projekt Red gets some of the heat as well:

      And then we're right back to the Jailer, who looked a lot more intimidating before the redditors went at him, as they zeroed in on his wonderfully luscious lips:

      Then we have a solid use of the new WoW meme format:

      And even though we already covered this one before, the new Santa deserves one more look.

      But we saved the best (worst?) Jailer one for last, and we assure you you won't look at him the same way after this one, as Alshainkt really nailed it:

      In case you weren't aware, the November 23rd Shadowlands release date comes exactly 16 years after the original World of Warcraft release date, to the day! Whether this had any effect on the actual date choice is unclear, as it wasn't mentioned in any of the official posts, but it's a great coincidence if it didn't!
      This also means that the Anniversary event will be live when Shadowlands launches, as it usually lasts from November 16th to the 30th (with the last event actually taking place over 2 months, since it was the big 15-year one). Even though we haven't gotten any specifics on it, it's safe to assume we'll at least be getting the same things as the usual yearly anniversaries. This actually includes a 16% XP Celebration Package buff, which will make leveling to 60 even faster, unless Blizzard decide to somehow modify it so it doesn't work in the Shadowlands. You can check out what was available in addition to the XP buff during the last non-15-year event here.

      Maybe we can get a re-issue of the 15th anniversary Collector's Editions? Please Blizz?
      So, there are many reasons to rejoice when Shadowlands comes around, and it's really great that the release date coincided with the exact 16-year anniversary of Vanilla!

      Update: Game Director Ion Hazzikostas has now also commented on the issue.

      As we just got the official Castle Nathria raid release schedule, including Mythic releasing on December 15h, it seems the World First race (and everyone else heading into the maximum difficulty at launch) will be clearing it during or very close to the holidays. This was somewhat unexpected, and I personally even thought they might delay the Mythic part of the raid specifically for this reason, but we now know that isn't the case.
      As you'd expect, it didn't take long for the community to bring out an old blue post where Blizzard specifically state that they don't want players to have to play during the holidays:
      As mentioned in the tweet, the key word there is "try", so Blizzard were very much aware of their own policy when making this particular decision. There were less subtle and understanding/constructive posts as well, with titles like "Times change I think. For the worse." and similar, as well as some actually pretty great meme-y posts:

      The reality of the situation is a little more complex, as the raid race itself will likely be finished in the first reset, at least for the very top guilds, but there are many, many more guilds outside the top 10 (or even top 100) that will still be pushing and playing during the holidays. While delaying Mythic only would have been a weird and unprecedented decision, players would probably understand, and the top raiders that will be racing would welcome it, but it seems it's set in stone now, so at least we get some World First entertainment just before and probably during the holidays as well!

      Here comes a response to the holiday-related release of the first Shadowlands raid from Game Director Ion Hazzikostas, as he talks about how a potential delay would affect the pacing of the expansion and how trying to avoid situations like this isn't always possible. The response comes in relation to a WarcraftLogs tweet and a reply to it, as originally spotted by Wowhead.
