The Melbourne Cup is tomorrow. Known as the race that stops the. Nation, it at the very least stops Melbourne (public holiday), but most people around Australia stop for the 3 minutes it takes the horses to run the course.
If I wasn’t so busy with travel preparations right now, I would organize an ingame event, similar to the running of the Gnomes where everyone drops down to the Shmmering Flats Mirage Raceway and run a few laps.
Of course to be authentic there would need to be masses of toons in tuxedos and ball gowns in the “car park” downing brews until they chunder.
So if you are online tomorrow, and feel the urge, organize an Azeroth Cup and tell me the results.
So on the subject of the race track, I think it would be cool if you could go there and join a repeatable quest, or better yet some kind of public instance where you race and Blizzard keeps track old your racing achievement.
There could be a PvE version (no inter-faction combat allowed unless flagged) and the deathmatch/destruction version where it’s last rider standing.
Consider it a mini game within WoW.
Anyway, I hope your horse comes in tomorrow!
Gnomer and Out!
