So yeah, I got sort of pseudo shafted by Blizzard. In a nutshell, there’s a World of Warcraft magazine and I was asked to contribute to it. So I wrote and submitted two articles. The magazine guys loved it and included it in.
But it seems that someone at the company has some thing against me.
I have absolutely no credit anywhere in there at all .
Oh i still get paid, that’s not a problem. It just, you know, sucks when the gaming company that you’ve fanboyed for over half your life (played Warcraft since I was like 7) has a corporate black list that you’re on which says something like “Under no circumstances is Matt’s name allowed to appear anywhere.”
I think I have an idea to the reasoning. Its very political though and I don’t want to get into the detail here. There’s nothing I can really do about it. I don’t see the point in going all legal against them. The best I can do is go public with my experience. Maybe someone important will see it and some changes will happen. Probably not.
I spent an hour with my dad and explained to him everything that happened and he has suggested that I should move on from this whole blogging and writing thing. It just doesn’t seem to be worth all this stuff. I can’t seem to do it though. And as long as I keep playing the game, I’m going to keep writing about it.
But professional writing?
I’m starting to reconsider. Hmm, what about street pharmacist?
Also, I think I’m going to start an MTG blog. I need a name for it.
