The Alliance's three rules on faction conflict:
1) You can't win.
2) You can't break even.
3) You can't leave the game.

A waste of time, a waste of emotional tension, a waste, if you fail to grasp the significance of narrative, of money.

There's different types of leads.

So he's working on localization for the Chinese version of the game, I take it? Good for him, localization is pretty cool.

I've got a friend who works at Aksys Games, and I've done a bit of that on my own for fan translations for Guilty Gear, BlazBlue, and Final Fantasy guidebooks, and it's great fun.

It's all about looking at the dialogue and terminology from multiple angles, getting a feel for the meaning and hidden implications, and then trying your best to convey it to a new audience in a new language, while staying consistent.

Ahem, in case Blizzard talent scouts are reading this, I've also got some experience as a story and technical consultant, 2d animation lead, and character designer for indie games... not to mention a thorough grasp of Blizzard's visual style and lore, plus thousands of edits on wowpedia.

Curll's been translating the short stories for a while and now he's getting a steady paycheck and some recognition for it. And he gets to read them before everyone else.

Bit late, sorry don't check this section regularly.


Best of luck though, my friend.

Why does this mean you have to leave us.

Also Oma never set us up like I told him to. That bastard.
