Feb 5th 2009 11:28PM I am all for Hunters getting a bag slot back.
But as a lock... can we at least get some equal treatment on that one?
Oct 26th 2008 8:25PM Seems to be faction related, as I am a gnome and got sent to Mekkatorque
Sep 21st 2008 6:35PM I guess that is debatable. If I am remembering the post correctly, I think I saw it as someone trying to play "Gotcha" with Blizzard. As I remember it, the poster was saying that, because the sound and graphic aspect of the skill riptide was not going to be ready for Wrath release, Blizzard is not standing by its policy of "it will ship when it is ready."
I do not think I need to spell it out for most people, but I think we are all smart enough to know that if Blizzard waited till every graphic effect or sound or icon or what have you was done to ship something, they would never release anything, because things like that are always changing.
If there is some aspect of Riptide that is not functioning as intended, and the expansion shipped anyway, then I guess a point could be made. Otherwise, the guy was inciting a fight, and deserved the ban, regardless if he deserved the ban more or less than anyone else.
Sep 21st 2008 5:33PM In one of my favorite books, "Red Storm Rising" by Tom Clancy, The USSR is preparing to attack NATO. In order to restore unit discipline, four colonels were executed for "state treason." Their crime was falsifying unit readiness reports. Later, several other lower rank soldiers were executed for disobeying order from their superiors.
I recount this part of the book, because I think this is what Tigole is doing on a lower scale. I do not think anyone can deny that the level of whining on the beta forums has gotten completely out of hand. It is nearly impossible to pick through all of the coal to find the diamonds right now.
Regardless of if you think that he was heavy handed in the bans, I think that this may help knock things back a few pegs. Obvious trolls and whiners may thing twice before posting, and I think that is a good thing. There may have been others who deserved to feel the ban hammer hit them more, but these guys, IMO, still deserved it all the same.
Aug 31st 2008 2:27PM I know this is off topic, but any chance we can get some analysis on the state of Warlocks in beta soon?
Aug 21st 2008 9:25AM I think there are two ways to look at it.
If this was just a trailer, as in a preview of the expansion, then this was awesome all around.
If this was the actual intro, as in when you install the expansion, this movie shows, then I agree it was technically amazing but lackluster otherwise.
Personally, I am leaning more towards the former, the way they are calling this a trailer, it leads me to think that there will be a different intro.
Also, someone check me on this timeline, but it seems early for them to release the actual intro. Didn't they release the TBC intro something like only a couple of weeks before the expansion? I could be way off on that though.
Aug 8th 2008 9:13AM I clicked the "Release date" option, but I realize that was a mistake, I just want that the most. I like reading up on wrath, and I have especially come to love the Ask a Beta Tester feature.
Jul 28th 2008 9:12AM I believe WotLKWiki had a screenshot of a Dalaran runeforge as well.
Jul 25th 2008 9:10AM For all of those asking about the invites and saying you didn't get in, the only people that are playing in beta at the moment are those that were in Alpha, those that attended the last BlizzCon and the Worldwide Invitational, and a few select others from various sources. As far as I am aware, no one who went through the opt in system has gotten invited yet, but that is coming soon in all liklihood. If you opted in, even if you don't get in with the first wave, you still have a chance to get into beta right up until the last day of Beta.
Aug 27th 2007 4:15PM I think this is fantastic, two of my favorite community sites coming together in what I am sure will be a great collaboration!
