Blizzard Entertainment released a FAQ today detailing how to introduce the new Onyxia re-vamp to those needing a desperate change of topic for nerd conversation. Among the many tips, you will learn how to distract the ranting nerd from talking for an hour about the NGE (and ruining your conversation about that jerk at work that has dandruff) to talking about how it was better in the "old days before B.C."
Granted, you will still have many conversations wrecked when you slip up in the slightest and even mention Star Wars and the Internet in the same sentence, but with this new topic you can expect, at least, a fresh stream of nerd rage shooting from your pal.
From the FAQ: "Just nod and agree with him that a few years ago can be referred to "'.way back then..'" and that "..that was when the game separated the men from the noobs."
Soon, CCP, creators of the highly successful space-based MMORPG called "EVE" are going to attempt to help by announcing their new efforts to use "Ambulation" in even more ways, in order to attract more females to the game. Then, scientists believe that the NGE will be safely diffused.
