Blizzard's forum policy against foreign languages {WoW}

Aug 28th 2007 4:06PM Said 41: I could remind you that it's english and not american you speak.

Technically, I believe we speak American English in the United States rather than English.

It's been a long time since I was in college, but there are enough differences between the two in terms of spelling and syntax that you could make a compelling argument that American English is a distinct sub-dialect.

Also said 41: I could also point out that the USA do not have an official language as it is. But I doubt you'd get it :)

The only reason for it because it was presumed to be understood that American English/English was the de facto standard. Up until recently there was no need to have to explain that to people.

Blizzard's forum policy against foreign languages {WoW}

Aug 28th 2007 3:51PM Said 29: I think people have right to say whatever they want to say using the language they want to use.

If you are standing and speaking in a public space you're 100% correct.

If you're speaking in a corporate forum, you only have the rights that the owner chooses to grant to you.

The most important thing to keep in mind is that Blizzard is legally liable for everything that is posted in their forums - think obscenity, hate speech, etc. - and if the forums turn into a Tower of Babel the cost to Blizzard skyrockets.

Time to play banish that game mechanic {WoW}

Aug 28th 2007 1:08PM Get rid of the two-profession limit. Give me a good reason why I can't learn skinning, leatherworking, blacksmithing, tailoring, alchemy, enchanting, engineering, and mining all at the same time.

If I want to spend the time and gold it takes to level them up, the choice should be mine.

Swords and daggers {WoW}

Aug 27th 2007 4:16PM @6 To answer your question, I would suggest going swords over daggers. You'll level much, much faster that way and you won't have the hassle of worrying about your positioning.

Swords and daggers {WoW}

Aug 27th 2007 4:06PM Said 8: But then there's folks like me and the author who know that swords are for warriors and daggers are for rogues. Rogues sneak about with little sharp objects and jam them into the tiny place on the back of our enemies' necks.

The Gray Mouser was a rogue and both he and Fafhrd (also a rogue) used swords - as well as dirks and axes.

Next thing you're going to tell me is that wizards don't use swords. *cough*Glamdring*cough*

Might as well face it, you're addicted to WoW {WoW}

Aug 27th 2007 3:52PM The easiest way for me to quick playing WoW at the moment was to buy Bioshock.

BigRedKitty: The Stable Situation {WoW}

Aug 15th 2007 1:13PM The only appropriate use of referring to oneself in the third person is when a man's talking about himself and his penis as a team.

Seen at BlizzCon: Waiting for tickets {WoW}

Aug 2nd 2007 4:07PM That's no kind of life for a man.

Should some spells be PvE or PvP only? {WoW}

Aug 2nd 2007 9:47AM I think it's pretty clear that PVP should have one set of rules and balancing between classes and PVE should have its own.

Looking back over the patches, the overwhelming majority of the class, skill, or spell changes being made are to accommodate PVP at the expense of PVE.

Anonymous source says: Next expansion = "Into the Maelstrom" {WoW}

Aug 1st 2007 10:23AM Their first priority should be to make Azeroth far more interesting to new and lower-level characters.

Put yourself in the shoes of a completely new player and imagine how the old world must feel to them as they wander from zone to zone practically playing a single-player game. It's painful to level up an alt at this point, even with having guildies to play with, and new players have it even worse.

For my money, I'd much rather have Blizzard come up with something innovative rather than merely add more-of-the-same content and a higher level cap.
