The great Panda debate {WoW}

Mar 10th 2008 10:27AM Who gives a shit what the chinese government wants? They're a soul-crushing, freedom-stomping set of thugs who masquerade as thinkers and philosophers. They murder their own citizens and they run down freedom-seekers with tanks. They can pucker up for my dwarven ass.

I understand the profit motive is what drives business, but once in a while it would be nice to see a corporation set aside a small amount of its capital for "Doing the right thing", which in this case would be thumbing its nose at the oppressors. Put the pandas in the game. Better yet, put them on an island, and name that island TAIWAN or TIBET.

Gold sellers hold account hostage {WoW}

Mar 8th 2008 11:33AM If you think someone's account has been compromised, you should flag a GM. If it's a friend, grab your phone and just call blizzard. These assholes can do a lot of damage in the time it takes to rouse a GM.

A message to those that ask me to group {WoW}

Feb 16th 2008 4:53PM You know, i run people through lower dungeons maybe two, three times a week. It's fun. They get a little gear, i feel like Christ walking on water for 20 minutes.

The 100g? Sure, it's worth 100g of my time, in the sense that i could be out earning gold. Personally, i look at it more like charity. And no one hands out food at a soup kitchen and then asks for a paycheck at the end. You do it because it's a nice thing to do, and you're helping someone.

I guess we all play a social video game for different reasons.

Breakfast Topic: Hacked {WoW}

Feb 15th 2008 10:08PM And that is why i hate the chinese. Well, that and their horriblly repressive communist regime.

Ok, mostly the commie thing. ;)

Breakfast Topic: Hacked {WoW}

Feb 15th 2008 9:54AM You're right. They teleport in and put of Shadow Labs farming chests for no good reason. Apparently that is "fun".

Breakfast Topic: Hacked {WoW}

Feb 15th 2008 9:41AM You know, I keep coming back to the same point: if people would stop buying gold, these assholes would stop hacking accounts for gold to sell.

Shattered Sun Offensive reputation loot revealed {WoW}

Feb 12th 2008 5:48PM I haven't been on the PTR. Are these new SSO faction dailies only for level 70, or can i start hitting them up on my 62 rogue? If possible, i'd like to have the rep when i ding 70. I don't care if the mobs are too tough -- i'll tag along with my brother if i need to.

Opening a dialog about sexism in World of Warcraft {WoW}

Feb 11th 2008 2:57PM Most of the people i raid with are married, and typically both spouses raid with us. The bad female players are just as craptastic as the bad male players. The good ones are just as good. They have just as many mooching, gimme-gimme types. They have just as many pain in the asses. They have just as many drama queens and loot whores and beggars.

Most of the time, raiding is pressing one of 2-9 buttons, running from point A to avoid something, or clicking a god damned cube. It really isn't that hard, nor is it limited to gender.

I don't really care who i raid with, so long as they STFU when the RL says so, and kills the skull.

The compleat WoW abbreviations {WoW}

Feb 4th 2008 5:17PM Nothing makes me LOL harder than "LFG for Heroic BM"

Officers' Quarters: A moral dilemma {WoW}

Feb 4th 2008 2:56PM No one likes playing 1-69?

I guess that's news to me. I have 3 70's and a 4th at 61. Working on a fifth as well, and after that, probably more.

Trying the game from different perspectives helps me work better with other classes, in any situation. I've become a better healer since i started playing a tank. Why? Because I "understand tanks in a more-than-theoretical way.

Also, you can sit and tell me how to "warlock", you can show me videos, and I can read all the class guides/elitist jerks forums I want...but until I am knee-deep in hellfire with a bag full of soul shards, i'll just never quite get it -- and neither will you.
