Mar 12th 2011 8:30PM I isn't the damage that made blizzard great it was the slowing effect. You can't kite groups like you used to with blizzard. The kite effect was the real nerf, the damage decrease just happened when all the other AOEs got cut down in Cata.

Nov 9th 2008 9:46PM +3 on the spoiler warning.
I've been able to avoid a lot and this last week a huge plot point gets killed by a crappy half edited Ask A Beta Tester post.
Apr 24th 2008 7:43PM Don't do this! The second macro does not take your system back to normal. I tried it out and it does look pretty but sucks the FPS. I used the remove macro and I am still left with a very annoying fps sucking fog. Not only does it slow my frames but it hinders visual in things such as BG.
Mar 19th 2008 5:31PM Being an Alt-aholic I have leveled about 14 toons to level 20+
Hands down with out a doubt Blood Elfs are the fastest, most streamline race to level with unmatched rewards in loot. Not to mention the great Flight paths in place and the portal to Undercity. You level very quickly to 20 and come out with some very nice equipment.
When I first rolled Ally I chose Draenei because of such a great experience with the other expansion race. I was very disappointed with the area design and all the walking involved for the quests. You also have the great headache of getting around to the rest of the world for weapon training and to pick up recipes.
Mar 19th 2008 3:56PM Great article, will give me some new fun goals in the game to try and acquire these.
Feb 16th 2008 1:00PM They should have outsourced this to Netflix and we could have had our disks in 2 days.
Feb 13th 2008 3:42PM I have always wondered why the do not offer offgame access to chat rooms, more exactly guild chat. They could also do off line ingame mail and auction house.
Jan 14th 2008 4:37PM People complain about grinding in the game but they do not realize the game is one big grind. I hate missing out on "old" content because the items and experience are no longer relent. The only reason I have seen 90% of the original content because I took my first 70 slow and I did a lot of old school stuff for recipes and enchanting mats.
Jan 5th 2008 8:06PM In my experience a lot of it has to do with power plays. Older aged players are more willing to express opinions and call out someones bullshit. But younger players want to keep their power so they call it whining or being immature.
I tend to be a loud mouth so when there is problems with guild structure or how the leaders are using the guild to there advantage with out thinking of all the members I speak up. Then a lot of members whisper me and agree and give suggestions. Then the "mature" leaders get unhappy and the quiet younger people would rather maintain the status quo and not risk being kicked out of a guild then express there opinions.
In short some younger players allow other younger players to treat them like shit just to belong to something, even if there "friends" treat them like crap. Older people are willing to all the bullies on there bullshit and then are considered juvenile or whiners.
