Due to the high volume of comments we receive on every subject, following these tips will increase your chances of having your comment posted on the Grog Blog:
Be clear in the thought you're trying to communicate, saying something like "I hate the Quest that gets you the thing that helps you beat that monster," could be less vague, reference game items and locations by actual names.
Keep your comments player friendly, it's OK to challenge or question someone's comment, but don't be rude or vulgar.
