Oct 21st 2009 2:18AM I've been autorunning with mouse-4 for years. So much so that I almost never use W to go forward unless it's really short distances.
I'd have never been able to keep playing WoW without autorun.
Sep 11th 2009 2:42AM I find this anti-Blizzard pro-CCP argument quite amusing considering how the average player of EVE views CCP (EVERY player hates CCP, by the way.) and the allegations of corruption and favouring certain players and such that have come up over the past years.
By the way, players of EVE are glad when CCP fixes something because CCP's reaction to people saying there's a problem tends to be 'It's working fine, go F- yourself.'
Jul 18th 2009 8:00PM You ALSO forgot getting Blink and then using it EVERY time its cooldown is up no matter the situation.
Jul 18th 2009 11:24AM I may just reroll every one of my characters as Worgen.
Jul 18th 2009 6:56AM We have a surprising number of tanking DK's. Our main tank in the guild I'm in is a DK. If anything I wish I saw more Druid/Warrior tanks than all the DK and Pally ones we've had lately. I'm even leveling up my own Warrior to tank.
Jul 14th 2009 9:47PM I think people who complain about this have seen Hackers and believe they now know what software development is.
Jul 14th 2009 9:18PM Just two points on the 'unimaginative designers':
- How the hell can you call anything that's been released since Wrath, Naxx aside, unimaginative and 'cut and pasted'? Every 5man, every raid is something new, something unique. I mean, Vanilla patches contained a class review which swung the balance pendulum wildly, and one single feature, be that a battleground, a holiday event, or in the last patches of Vanilla, new raids. No Vanilla patch compares AT ALL to the changes 3.0, 3.1 and now 3.2 bring to the table.
- Those things that are reused or 'boring' are for a GOOD reason. If you were there at the end of Vanilla/start of BC you'd know that Blizzard stated they dropped the ball releasing Naxx so close to the expansion since they loved the work they put into the raid. So when an expansion came where Naxx would be setting appropriate, they brought it back to let people see the work they did and an even more badass looking version of a tier set very few people got to wear. As for the T9 gear, it's already been said by others that the design is because the Tournament is training troops for an attack on Icecrown Citadel. And, as the troops of each faction will want strength through unity, what better way then to create a 'uniform' of sorts? Who cares if your shoulders don't have a flaming eyeball impaled on a spike, or that everyone.. haha.. 'looks too much the same'. Get over it, enjoy your shiny higher stats and the raid and look forward to Icecrown.
And for all those who say that WoW is too easy, I just have one thing to say: Final Fantasy XI is still running. It's not for casuals, if a game that's challenging is all you want.
Jul 13th 2009 6:57PM You're.. seriously using pre-BC itemization as an argument against gear in Wrath? Really?
Jul 7th 2009 5:30PM They knew Hunters were coming, but they weren't actually implemented until JUST before the game went live, which is why they were horribly broken for a very long time during Vanilla WoW.
And I'm not talking 'horribly broken' like Pallies when 3.0 came or whatever. I mean they had two talent trees which were complete nonsense and had literally useless or nonworking talents, and Marksman which actually sorta worked. And pets that ran along beneath you when you hopped on a taxi until they timed out from being too far away or were killed by mobs. They also ran alongside you when you mounted, and it wasn't for a few patches that they became automatically Passive when you mounted.
(Patch 1.6 was 'the patch that will fix hunters'. It was... a start.)
Jul 7th 2009 8:09AM In the past year? You know that the auto-cast-on-self feature was originally an addon right? They've been implementing particularly useful addons into the base UI from the very beginning.
I'm crazy with addons though. It was Morrowind's fault. That modding community and how amazingly they managed to work over that game has just made me addicted to customizability. I have LOADS of addons.
