Sep 8th 2009 1:21PM I think that the Guild Leader was just being greedy, and was upset because the piece that they wanted dropped and that they didn't get it. Big deal.
The other thing is that we don't know that the Guild Leader was a tank. It's not stated in the letter. We only assume that because the GL rolled on a tanking item.
Either way, unless it was called as a main spec roll, the Warrior was in the right to roll, and the former guild member was in the right to give it to him, at least that's how it goes in my guild.
Mar 23rd 2009 5:13PM Here is my issue to the whole thing. Is it wrong for mod developers to ask for donations in order to help offset the costs to develop an add-on? No. Is it wrong that they use World of Warcraft to "advertise" a solicitation for donations? Yes.
My reasoning isn't because people are trying to use WoW as a way to actually earn a little extra money. My reasoning is that what you are asking to do is use World of Warcraft, a product that is otherwise advertising free, as a source of free advertisement.
Does it suck that QuestHelper and Outfitter are going to be going the way of the dodo? Yes it does. But there are other mods that came around that have done the same thing. People have done fan updates for them.
Ultimately, WoW isn't saying that you can't make money off of World of Warcraft for the hard work that you put into making the addons, they are just saying that you can't use World of Warcraft as a tool in order to ask for that money.

The notion of spelling your name with a lower-case letter demeans your own value as a person. You're basically saying "In my attempt to be unique and special I lower myself to the level of improper nouns. I am on the same level as dog, cat, sink and tree." If you wish to be treated as subhuman, feel free to keep your lower caseness. If you want to be treated like a person, use proper fucking English."
This of course, coming from a person who's name on the board is started with a lower case letter. Pot, meet kettle.
Nov 11th 2008 10:33PM It's all well and good that they say this now, but I want to see them actually do this. Here was a day that many people had off from work in the United States and were unable to play a game that they paid for due to a screw up that Blizzard made.
Personally, it's sad that Blizzard wasn't able to properly test and implement these changes, especially with only a couple of days to go before the release of Wrath of the Lich King.
This just shows that Blizzard has utter contempt for it's customer base, or that it is just plain ignorant in matters that pertain to customers. This problem could have been solved months ago if they would have properly executed a game testing scenario that would have taken all patches into account on a server that runs with the same specifications as what the customers use.
Instead, we, the customers that Blizzard has shown nothing but contempt for this entire day, have to sit through false promises and a lack of information from the company.
This kind of situation should never arise, but it did. Part of the fault falls in with Blizzards policy of taking down all servers at one time for maintenance, instead of doing a systematic rolling maintenance that most other companies do. The fact that it is a "persistant online game" does not absolve Blizzard of this, and should have provided them incentive to make sure that things like this doesn't happen. Even if only 10% of the customer base of World of Warcraft were to leave this game because of this, that would take over $15,000,000 USD out of the coffers of Blizzard Entertainment monthly.
