I normally don't get jazzed up for gimmick world events, but if there's going to be bear jousting I'm ALL FOR IT.

Bear jousting... even proto-drake jousting would be fun, Icecrown's got a lot of 'em at the vrykul settlements and as FP-mounts at Crusaders' Pinnacle.IQD was my first big non-holiday 'event', and it was a LOT of fun even with mob-shortage and lag due to more people being on the island than even in Shattrath. Nice surprise, this!

I started to get all excited for this, then remembered what happens every time WG starts - Northrend grinds to a terrible, lag-filled halt. Unless the Argent Tournament is instanced, I'm against it for that reason alone.

Yeah, I know what you mean.Except that I'm not a passive person who just takes things like that and deals with it, I transferred to a lower population server where that kind of thing just doesn't happen. Next time they offer the free transfers off your realm, it's not a terrible idea to marshall up your guild and transfer off. Or just leave and find a new guild since on transfer servers there are TONS and TONS of new guilds and old guilds looking for a lot of people. I'm pretty pleased that I transferred. Not having game-crippling lag on a regular basis is way better than any of my old servers.

@ Dave:Well, thank you for spelling out the option for people with no friends.

Dave said 'With your guild.' So your either a moron who can't read or a pompous ass. Take your pick.

@DaveFunny you should mention the free realm transfers, Dave. I took Blizzard up on the offer and went to Tortheldrin. I've been on a fair number of PvE and PvP servers, and Tortheldrin is like none of the others--it is full of 14 year old idiots. Now, I know that the response is that much of WoW is full of 14 year old idiots. Its different. I don't know how, but it is. There is a much higher concentration, to the point that running instances is near impossible, and I saw incredibly stupid and selfish moments transpire regularly. I'm talking things that I have never encountered in 3 years of WoW. I suspect that the free realm transfers are a magnet for outcasts, halfwits and immature pricks that couldn't hack it on their old server, but didn't have the money to transfer to a new one. The free transfers are all they have, so when servers are opened for the free transfer, a higher percentage of idiots appear relative to people leaving due to high queue times. I really hope that this not the case for all servers, but then again, Dave, you sound exactly like the type of person I repeatedly encountered....so make that another strike against free server transfers.
