Officers' Quarters: Account sharing + officer = bad {WoW}

Apr 13th 2009 3:23PM @ AyaJulia

I wish you were a little less reluctant to label my opinion as 'sad', especially since you don't even see my point of view. Maybe I was too hasty myself. I'll try it again:

I've been with my guild for a good long time, now. Yes, I do have a life, yadda yadda, but the fact is that many of us have socialized with each other - on the phone, over Vent, in the game, occasionally in real life - to the point where I do think of many of them my friends. We've downed bosses together, saved crystals and shards for each other without prompting, toss around tangled in-jokes and helped with real-life advice and even homework.

As I've said before, I would share my account info with my wife, but anyone short of that is another story. People do break up every day, and sometimes when that happens they do things that you absolutely do not expect. Sure, we all trust our own judgments, but it's the 'it'll never happen to me' mentality that causes disasters.

Anyway, I agree to disagree with you, AyaJulia. The only difference in our perspectives is that I consider my guild my friends, whereas you consider them a bunch of people you barely know. If I were in your position I'd probably approach this topic the same way.

Officers' Quarters: Account sharing + officer = bad {WoW}

Apr 13th 2009 1:35PM Well, sure, except you forget that WoW is also to some extent 'real life'. It isn't a console game filled with just scripted NPCs - there are real people playing this game too, who invest a lot of time and effort into furthering their goals with other real people.

Yes, you can be sentimental and claim that someone you know or trust (husband, hopefully not) won't someday, intentionally or unintentionally, sabotage work that potentially dozens of people have placed months or years of effort into. You could say that, but I wouldn't believe you, because it's happened before with other accounts despite their players predictions otherwise.

So the question is this: are you willing to risk an entire guild filled with many people for a few people you trust? Would you still believe someone was justified in sharing their info if their significant other nuked your guild bank because they trusted that SO?

To be honest though, I'd share my account info with my wife - I wouldn't tether myself to someone who would do such a thing for any reason, and I think many people also think similarly. But, I'd never share it with my girlfriend.

WoW Rookie: A character by any other name would be so weak {WoW}

Mar 31st 2009 8:51AM My very first character ever, an undead warlock, was named 'Shamblee', 'cause I was all like 'so undead = zombie and zombies shamble, voila!'

Many, many alts down the road, I rolled my current main, Shambrawr. The 'Sham' part was in homage to fond memories, and the 'rawr' part was because...well, rawr. C'mon.

The funny thing about this is that a few months ago a random player whispered me and pointed me in the direction of Shamwow, this supposedly superabsorbent chamois they sell in informercials.

To those who've seen said informercials: "Shambrawr! You'll say 'rawr' every time! And if you buy one now, you get four totems absolutely FREE!" ^_^
