Another One Bites the Dust

Tryrhoor over at WAAGH Roots is done blogging well so he says. There are getting to be fewer and fewer blogs out there for Warhammer. With WAAGH Roots maybe gone and Warhammer Blog Times going to the dark side (Aion), my blog roll is getting smaller and smaller. I need to update that sometime but I am lazy.

With these blogs dying out and no one taken there place, well no one I have seen, does this mean that the game is actually dying. I don't know the correspondance (sp?) between blogs and gaming sub. but I hope it isn't a sign. I still enjoy the game and will continue to play it until either it does die or SWTOR comes out or something else might catch my attention. Anyway I will continue on for my 2 readers out there.


  1. Clearly the broader an audience the more blogs there will be to talk about it. I think it takes a special person to blog about something they really enjoy. Not only to take the time to play but to then jot down thoughts about it.

    I've fought back and forth about starting a blog to talk about the game but then I get a grip with reality in that I know I simply do not have the time to do it right.

    The game has lost some subs what with it being late summer ... schools just starting ... and now Champions Online launched. Many distractions. I don't see CO as the problem since it's so PvE centric. We'll see when Aion launches.

    Aion looks cool and I will definitely give it a test drive at some point. Its look is very Final Fantasy-like which can be a turnoff for western gamers who aren't fans of those RPGs. It's got PvP in it but until we see what happens after Level 25 we won't know how good the PvP is. And of all the original ideas you get to take Keeps!

    On Iron Rock things still rock ... I intend to play until WAR either closes shop or until the Warhammer 40k MMO releases in 2012 (estimated).

  2. I am still trying to keep WBT alive, but I will definitely be more focused on Aion. I was noticing the same thing that the active WAR blogs on my blogroll is less than five now, and no new ones popping up.

    I am starting to wonder the benefits of the blogroll myself. After researching some stats in Google analytics I realized that people tend to come, and read the new post, and leave immediately. So does someone elses topic interest them, and they leave my blog?

    Last night I changed the look, and feel of my blog to encourage people to spend more than 1 minute. It will be interesting to see my bounce rate, more pages being viewed, and commented on.

    With all my free time now not playing WAR 24/7 it has given me time to make my blog better, research alot of blogging tips, and hopefully an overall better experience on my blog.

  3. I have to be honest, it's not a good sign.

    But it's hard to blog about something in particular for a long time. Especially when it's perceived that things aren't going to well.

    I find that I have bursts of creativity, like at the moment, which tends to involve storing the ideas down as post titles in draft form.

    By the way where is VA ? I noticed it's where you live.

  4. I live in Harrisonburg VA. Now don't come stalking me now or anyone else out there unless you are a hot girl then I can deal with that. :)
