World of Warcraft: "He Knows"
Posted: Wednesday May 1st, 2013 by

As a dad it's not uncommon to let your children win because easier (and more fun) to congratulate them than console them. I don't pull all my "punches" (figuratively speaking). But, if I can't see a lesson in handing the kiddo a defeat, I don't see the value in winning a game just because I can. Granted, most of the time I do not throw a game outright. I just take a route, or make a decision, that will push me farther away from the goal or slow my own progress.

All that being said, the last time I TRIED to beat him in a Skylanders Battle Mode fight, he destroyed me, repeatedly, no matter how hard I tried. And, it wasn't because of his usual Level difference ploy. We were both the same level. He seemed to have more upgrades, but that shouldn't have mattered too much. We were racing to collect 5 gems each. His guy was faster. But, that's no excuse for losing 7 in a row. Luckily he let me off the leash when he realized I wasn't having as much fun as he was. I take solace in the fact that he still needs me to do the more difficult lock puzzles for him in the game. I'm guessing that "need" won't last much longer.

So about World of Warcraft. I hadn't really played in months. But he uses the account enough that I continue to pay for it. He has a freebie WoW account as well, but that account doesn't have access to all of my pets and mounts. **shrugs** Not like I've got the time to play anyway, right?

Speaking of WoW, who's going to BlizzCon?
