Jun 1st 2009 3:31AM This whole story has been an amusing read. While it is in the realm of possibility for 7 different people to use the same IP, I don't think it's very likely and honestly I really couldn't care less.
I hadn't even heard of this blog before. I'm going to check out the guides and if they are as good as some are claiming, I'll probably favorite the blog and start reading it regularly.
Apr 27th 2009 6:00PM Dell XPS M1730 World of Warcraft Edition
Is there anywhere I can go to buy this laptop? It's out of production and no longer listed on the Dell website.
Is there any place online that I can go to to buy this laptop? I have admired it since I had first read about it on this website, but I didn't have the cash to spare at the time. Now that I can finally buy this laptop, there is no where I can go to find it. I've searched every online site that I know of and nowhere have I had any luck.
Yes I am aware that the laptop isn't top-of-the-line and it can be out-performed by other laptops. That's not my concern. This is something I've wanted to own for quite a while and still hope I have some chance of getting one.
Since WoWInsider has always covered what's been going on with this laptop, I hope someone can give me the info I need. WoWInsider actually reported that the laptop would be discontinued, but then recalled that statement the next day and said they'd still be available. Though that was a while ago and there has been no word on it since.
Thank you to anyone that tries to help.
Apr 27th 2009 11:01AM Actually the Horde-side depicts the Horde slaughtering the Alliance while the Alliance had their hands full fighting scourge...and then bragging about it.
Some of us do have Horde alts...
Apr 27th 2009 10:48AM I nominate this post for most desperate attempt to make a point. I won't even begin trying to untangle this mess and countering your "points"
Apr 26th 2009 11:46PM As much as people like to say this article is overlooking important points, those same people don't say a word against the points the article does make.
Apr 26th 2009 9:04PM Did you even bother reading any of the lines around what you zoned in on? Try a bit harder.
Apr 26th 2009 8:14PM Have you heard of the Lich King? Yeah, Alliance sent a bunch of forces to Northrend to try and bring him down.
When he's dead, it's a pretty safe bet we won't revere him as a lost hero and won't build him into Alliance culture.
There are a lot of decent points you could make for your argument. This isn't one of them, and it doesn't really make sense to the argument.
Apr 26th 2009 8:08PM What should they have done with the Orcs? The orcs were savage invaders set on genocide and they LOST. Can't send them back home as the Dark Portal is closed. So tell me what they should have done with the orcs...
Wrynn did not have "final say" on the payment. Read more into what actually happened.
Putress and Varimathras aren't some random madman and demon that decided to cause trouble. They were PART of the Horde, and an intimate part of the Forsaken. They were only in a position to do what they did because of Sylvanas.
"You may have lost tons of soldiers and one of your greatest heroes to HORDE TRAITERS. But we lost people too, so you're not allowed to be mad at us." Yeah right, makes no sense.
We kill Scarlet Onslaught all the time. We didn't team with them and get stabbed in the back though.
Blood elves and Alliance "Commanders"? No...there was one. Name was Garithos, a self-appointed Grand Marshal. More of a Warlord taking advantage of a land that was utterly shattered and pretty much without a government. No evidence he had the backing of the real Alliance.
Gnomes now? What are you even talking about? That didn't make sense with the argument you're trying to make. I just got trolled, didn't I?
Apr 26th 2009 7:53PM For my own curiosity...everyone claiming that Varian is being reckless in how he leads the Alliance. Tell me how.
His only attack on the Horde was on the Undercity. That wasn't something randomly decided because he hates horde, it was in retaliation of what happened at the Wrathgate and to bring down Putress.
What has he done that supposed shows him using the Alliance for his personal grudge against the Horde?
Apr 26th 2009 6:38PM A few words I'd like to get out there...
--With Orcs and the internment camps...How do you fault the Alliance for that? At that time in the storyline, it was quite clear that the horde was a mass of savage brutes interested only in conquest. There was none of the "Horde are redeemed" stuff going on back then. Savage invaders that murdered innocents eventually lose the war. What does the Alliance do with those invaders? Can't send them back home, the Dark Portal was closed. Kill them all? That would have been my vote. Instead they're put in internment camps. If you think there is anything more merciful than that compared to what that horde deserved, I'd like to hear it.
--After playing WC3 and the bonus campaign in TFT, I had HIGH hopes for Thrall. I really thought he'd turn the horde around. Keep in mind I've been playing Warcraft since the first game; back when it was "Orcs & Humans". I have hatred of Orcs built in deep. But even I was pretty impressed by the way Thrall's character was made. But since WoW they seem to have just killed what made him great.
First it's with Orc Warlocks, which I can ignore as we know game mechanics always come before Lore(though I don't agree with it). I think Horde would have been fine with just Troll and Undead Warlocks though to preserve the lore.
Secondly, they really make it seem like Thrall seems turns a blind eye to the problems with the Forsaken. The instability of the Forsaken is nothing new. We've known from the start of WoW that something isn't quite right and it was probably going to end up burning us later. Well then it happened, and people act like it happened suddenly out of the blue and that no one is at fault.
Third, the whole issue with Garrosh. Come on Thrall, put the dog down. For the record though, I don't believe Garrosh can take Thrall in a real fight. It seemed Blizzard purposely setup that event to give Garrosh some credibility, but it's obvious it wasn't finished, and was not meant to be conclusive.
--The Horde losing just as many soldiers does not make the Horde innocent.
"Yeah you lost a whole mess of soldiers and one of your greatest heroes to Horde traitors. But we lost people too, so you're not allowed to be mad at us."
Putress and Varimathras aren't some random demon and madman that just suddenly showed up. They were high-ranking Forsaken under Sylvanas. They are part of the horde, you can't claim innocence when one part of your faction does wrong. The Forsaken represent the Horde equally among of the other Horde races. Considered the Horde are usually depicted as being even more of a single entity than the Alliance is, I was surprised to ever see such an argument.
Also, Putress could not have gotten himself into a position to do what he did without Sylvanas. We still don't know what would have eventually happened with Sylvanas and the new plague had Wrathgate never happened.
--Varian should put aside his grudge to fight a greater enemy.
He ALREADY did that. Varian had seen the WORST of Horde society and STILL joined forces against the Lich King. What did he get for it? The Wrathgate disaster. He's in the EXACT same situation now as he was before, except replace "Lich King" with "Yogg'saron"
How is anyone surprised that he would refuse? What is the games timeline? The Wrathgate happened what? A month ago to him? A few months? Certainly not more than a year. That is certainly NOT enough time.
Other than that, it would be a political disaster for him to just forget what had happened only a few months ago and go right back into another joint venture with the Horde.
--Demons are at fault for all of the Horde's prior atrocities...I hadn't heard that one before. Nice try.
