This is a random and rather last-minute idea some of us in the games-based learning course had… we’re going to have a programme-wide, past and present IDGBL event in World of Warcraft.
On Monday 15 December at 8pm (UK time) we’re going to team up, get on Skype and tackle a battleground together. We’ll be on our Alliance characters on the Thunderhorn realm, EU. So if you want to come help take down the Horde, or, more likely, die lots of times and have a laugh then:
- Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know your WoW name and Skype contact (I’m clara_oshea)
- Make sure you’ve updated your WoW software (there’s been an expansion this year, so there maybe lots of patches to download)
- Double check your computer can still run Skype and WoW
- Have your character at level 20 (or up to level 29 and capped if you have a full account). The pvp battlefields are clumped in groups of ten levels, e.g. 10-19, 20-29 etc).
- Bring your headset!
I don’t know if we have any WoW players on the programme that haven’t done IDGBL, but if we do, please come along! The more, the merrier!
If you haven’t played for a while, or never done pvp, don’t fret – we’ll have a nice chat about what’s going to happen before we jump into the action. And it really is for the laughs and not the glory 🙂
