ESRB unintentionally exposes email addresses of people who filed complaints over Blizzard's Real ID system [Updated] {WoW}

Jul 12th 2010 10:02PM This is clearly a conspiracy. Bobby Kotick PERSONALLY paid the ESRB money to expose these emails to take the heat off of Activision-Blizzard.

Scattered Shots: Hunter trinkets {WoW}

Feb 22nd 2010 11:45AM A "scientific approach" would have verifiable fact backing it up. Frostheim presents none of that in this article - maybe if he did, he'd be taken more seriously?

Of course, a scientific approach would reveal that Herkuml has a long wind-up time for Hunters (something on the average of 20 seconds), can easily lose its stacks - and thusly most of its DPS contribution - on any encounter where you are forced to stop firing (Putricide, Blood Princes, Sindragosa, so on and so forth), and has more problems with uptime than any on-proc trinket, even NES.

And frankly, saying that DMC:G is "random" basically shows that you've never used the trinket - a 35% on-anything proc is basically up as soon as its internal cooldown is. Herkuml is more "random" than DMC:G in that regards, in the sense of what does and doesn't proc it is random as all hell (Volley doesn't, for example).

Scattered Shots: Hunter trinkets {WoW}

Feb 22nd 2010 11:02AM Realistically, if you have about 700-ish Armor Penetration (or more), NES + DMC:G is going to give you more bang for your buck - even with NES's rubbish procrate - than DMC:G and Lolkuml War Token ever would.

Of course, Frostheim happens to have a habit of not actually fact-checking... well, anything he writes on Scattered Shots.

Cataclysm release confirmed for 2010 in Activision Blizzard conference call {WoW}

Feb 10th 2010 10:26PM It is also important to realize that Activision-Blizzard's fiscal year is NOT the calendar year. Their fiscal year is July 1 - June 30. So, technically the end of FY2010 for Activision Blizzard is June 30.
