Breakfast Topic: The most memorable raid interruption {WoW}

Mar 18th 2011 8:50AM In the middle of TOC25

Healing Team Captain "Oh crap! I have to go! I have to pick up my son at soccer practice."

He leaves. Later we find out he was supposed to pick up his 7 year old son at soccer practice 3 hours ago, before the raid even started. He left his poor kid there for 3 hours while he raided.

Breakfast Topic: What do other players do that really annoys you? {WoW}

Jan 25th 2011 8:01AM When they get on their big mount and stand on top of the quest NPC I'm trying to talk to. That annoys me. Simple solution, have "/ignore" also remove their avatar from your screen.

Officers' Quarters: Critter Kill Squad tips and tricks {WoW}

Dec 27th 2010 3:06PM 1 hour in deeprun tram on the ironforge side with a raid group of around 35 guildies and we had not only the 50k achieve but the 100k as well. The rats spawn instantly. It was a fun guild event.

GameTap closing Atlanta office, focusing on newer PC titles {Joystiq}

Oct 7th 2010 2:51PM @nbinney Voted you up cause you are 100% correct. Back when they had the "old" client I loved the service. It was great for my HTPC and easy and fun to use.

The web based client was just junk. Pure junk. I cancelled a month after its release, never to return.

Flexible raid locks in patch 4.0.1 {WoW}

Oct 1st 2010 1:18PM I am so confused.

So ... if you are say running heroic 10M ICC and someone drops your raid you have to switch to normal mode to replace anyone into your group?

Cataclysm: Justice point conversion revised {WoW}

Sep 29th 2010 2:15PM But this is an all in conversion is it not? so its all from the perspective of a level 80. So the frost badges that we worked hard to get at level 80 not 85.

Cataclysm: Justice point conversion revised {WoW}

Sep 29th 2010 1:28PM I'm still annoyed that Frost is worth the same as Triumph. You'd think they'd be worth a little more, since, you know, they're harder to get.

Official forum changes, real life names to be displayed {WoW}

Jul 6th 2010 2:08PM Nerf my favorite class, no biggie, happens all the time. Thats online gaming for you.

Change my favorite profession so its no longer profitable? Meh... I'll move on.

This? This above anything will make me leave the game. The "Real ID" system in place is terrible. Terrible. The fact that you can see "friends of friends" real name? A privacy nightmare. But at least, I do not consent, so I do not allow anyone my realid email.

But now, Blizzard is effectively banning me from their forums because I like to protect my identity, forums that I use to recruit for my guild or general talking with others on my server. It's fun. I liked it, and it will go away.

Why? Because of "trolls"? Seriously? There has GOT to be a better way.

I flat out refuse to participate in this. Its getting worse and worse and if Real ID becomes no longer an "option" but a "must", it will destroy this game for me and that will be very sad for me because I like to play it.

Blizzard, one feature you could do is just allow me to set a permanent alias for my Battle.Net account that is what RealID displays. Not my real name. Do that, and all this nightmare turns into a cool feature. As it is, this IS a privacy nightmare. I will not participate, and if it ever comes to the point where its "Display your real name or stop playing" i will choose the latter option.

Maintenance day loot from {WoW}

May 18th 2010 8:35AM I wanna raptor

Breakfast Topic: We are the Horde {WoW}

May 6th 2010 1:36PM I play alliance, but I'm a browncoat at heart.
