The Queue: If we could go back in time, we’d be able to right this wrong

This month’s Splatfest was Teleportation vs. Time Travel. I was far too busy on Saturday to participate, sadly… which may explain why the wrong side won. That said, this one was tougher than I initially expected.

Why? The fact that time travel is up against teleportation inherently implies that you can ONLY time travel from your current location. Most versions of time travel I’ve seen in sci-fi have allowed people to teleport as they time travel. If you can’t do that, it’s a little less exciting — but it’s still better.

Oh well. Let’s Queue.


The Queue: A haunting reminder

Welcome back to The Queue, our daily Q&A feature for all of Blizzard’s games! Have a question for the Blizzard Watch staff? Leave it in the comments!

A stroll around Boralus had me stumbling upon an auction that brought back a flood of memories. Who here remembers the original Haunted Memento? Originally introduced during the Scourge Invasion event that heralded the arrival of Naxxramas in patch 1.11, it gave players the Haunted buff, which would cause a Scourge Haunt to follow you around. You could also throw it to other players, which would immediately trigger the /cower animation on them. In patch 6.0, it was nerfed to trigger a random 15 second haunting instead of a constant ghostly companion. Why? Weirdly enough, because the ghost was the number one source of creature spawns in the game, and it was causing server performance degradation.

That’s a powerful ghost. Let’s get to your questions!
