Big Love Rocket Renamed to X-45 Heartbreaker in Patch 9.1.5

Recommended Posts

35725-love-is-in-the-air-2018-feb-2-16.j

Blizzard has renamed the Big Love Rocket from the Love is in the Air event into X-45 Heartbreaker and the Twin Consorts Throne of Thunder encounter in this week’s 9.1.5 PTR build.

Achievements

Items

Raids

  • We also discovered a change to the Throne of Thunder Twin Consorts encounter. It’s now called Twin Empyreans. The associated loot has been renamed too.

In an effort to remove inappropriate references from the game, in Patch 9.1.5 alone, Blizzard renamed multiple achievementsMac'Aree to Eredathdesexualized some Vanilla paintings, and changed a word in their API source code.

Even that rocket was too offensive? If ToT bosses are too much, then I wonder what they are going to do about certain section of Black Temple. There was also Karazhan with its mistresses. Are they going to change these too?

In the next 9.1.5 update Twin Empyrean will be dressed in stylish Hazmat suits and during Love is the Air event will be seen alongside Princess Theradras and Therazane, occasionally spawning in major cities and busting a move on Prodigy - Fat of the Land in their search for true love.

Okay I'm convinced that the firm they hired to clean themselves up is listing anything even remotely perverted (whether offensive or not, some obviously is) and the devs are renaming it out of fear.

Also, they forgot something:

As someone has held the same job continuously for over 30 years...yes things have changed.

 

However, NO, none of that would have EVER been allowed even 16 years ago in the workplace.

Blizzard is a workplace. The rules apply to them. This not about players, it's about the workplace.

this is still a media company though and if restrictions are going to be placed on what they can use for naming and storytelling it's not a good sign.  I mean the name of the game is world of warcraft  you don't think people find war offensive????

How soon until Thrall is removed from the game or completely changed to Go'el everywhere??  I mean this seems way overboard and isn't going to help cause newsflash to the company the name Activision-Blizzard will forever be tied to *filtered* harassment/assault now so you probably better go ahead and change that name too.  I mean when people are going around saying  stuff like " I Act-Blizzed that chick at the bar last night"  you aren't going to make em forget by changing the names of items and NPCs

And Dreadscar Rift. And Boralus.

Consort is another one of those overcorrections. Here in the UK it's a familiar title that is still lined up for use. Yes, it has a baser meaning -- but I thought that was why ToT used it. It trod the line carefully, making you wonder. 

But no. Consortaths.

I'm just happy that blizzard isn't in control of the borderlands franchise.
They would've straight out remove moxxi from the game I reckon.

Funny how they still are tonedeaf. Exemplifying the Madonna-Prostitute complex they have by going from one extreme to the other.

In the context of king's/emperor's consort it simply means wife. So in this case, I would never deem it as inappropriate.

This is an textbook example of how to overreact in panic. Being driven by panic of any further law problems with a rabid, bloodthristy and utterly insane "movement". How much of a *filtered* up insane SJW you must be to feel offended by "LOVE ROCKET". Holy *filtered*.

In 15 years of WoW maybe 1% of players thought anything else of it than just being a "LOVE ROCKET". So who is the oversexualized one here? Not the players, but some apeshit-crazy crusaders hating all and everything.

But just go on, this is FUBAR ridiculous.

I actually had to have the joke pointed out to me long ago, but I think I'd side on more people getting the joke than not. I was kinda surprised this wasn't the first change they made.

The weird thing is that it's a joke that nobody really minded. Plenty of people found it funny. I think people call 'prude' way too quickly, but honestly, I don't know what other term fits if we can't have juvenile jokes like that.

Kinda interested to see how it goes down. I hate the consort change, I disagree with it, but I'm not expecting much of it. It's a weird term, people can misunderstand... yeah, sure. 

But they're stepping on toes with the Love Rocket. People know it, and people'll notice it's gone.

(And besides that, the name isn't even crude in and of itself!!!! Call it a 'heartbreaker' all you want, it's still a rocket! I don't understand...)

Corporations don't care. I'm not sure if anyone actually cared. They are simply overreacting and covering their asses just in case there are any doubts about them "thoroughly changing as a company".

Yeah, and as was mentioned before, if they had "problems" with these names, then what's going to happen about BT, Kara and some other places. Are they going to remove those mobs? Or just change them into something like a "guest" or "companion".

      Hirumaredx is back with another great video focusing on WoW's history, this time covering the life and death of 10-man competitive/maximum difficulty raiding and the lower player-count raid version in general. With the most difficult raiding being 20-man for quite a while now and Blizzard being pretty receptive to feedback, the topic of 10-man maximum difficulty raiding is a very interesting one to bring up, so let's take a look.
      The main point coming across from the video is the fact that 10-man raiding for the hardest difficulty was much more popular than 25-man, as the video goes into the timeline of the addition of 10-man raids, the switch over to Mythic and addition of flex. Hirumaredx also talks about the reasons it was removed, from the balancing difficulty, to the weird raid compositions, the basically hand-me-down raid design, the top guilds not considering it where the real competition was at, how the mode could be brought back and much more.
      It's very much worth a watch if you're even a little interested in WoW history or raiding!

      Timebound Ruminations is a new item that you can purchase in Oribos to immediately grant your Companion 5,000 experience.
      Patch 9.1.5 introduces a very useful way to catch up on Companion XP if you want to give Covenant Adventures a try or plan on switching to a different Covenant.
      Timebound Ruminations can be purchased from Au'Dara a new Heirloom Vendor near the Flight Master in Oribos and costs 10,000 Reservoir Anima.

      The item can be used on any Companion to grant them 5,000 XP. We tried upgrading Sika (Level 1) and the Companion went up straight to Level 14.

      The item's also Bind-to-Account, meaning you can purchase it on one character and send it to another.

      Patch 9.1.5 has been available for playtesting on the PTR for some time now, and with no release date set, we're speculating when the patch and 9.2 could hit live servers.
      The last few 9.1.5 builds only contain minor updates to the game, which means we can now start speculating about the patch's release date.
      As Tyrsenus points out, Shadowlands is 65 days behind schedule, and public testing averages anywhere between 60-80 days. Based on that information, we're likely to see Patch 9.1.5 hit live servers in early-to-mid November. It's also worth noting Blizzard put a placeholder date for Legion Timewalking to the in-game calendar on the PTR that reads November 2.
      Patch 9.2 could hit PTR between January and mid-February, according to the player, with a release date slated between March and May 2021. Note that the article is based on the current cadence, and we might eventually see the updates go live earlier or even later, so take everything with a grain of salt.

      TL;DR
      The likelihood of Patch 9.1.5 hitting live servers in early-to-mid November are high, and the predictions could be accurate. Everything related to Patch 9.2 are just wild guesses. Source: Reddit
