Breakfast Topic: What secondary character would you promote to a leading role? {WoW}

Dec 14th 2011 8:47AM This about driving the narrative not a game of replace your faction leader right?.. Lillian Voss.. Again NOT for leadership just more development for her character...You cant wander around littering the countryside with blue flaming corpses and be ignored..

If we are talking about supplanting our Queen (blasphemy!) the obvious shoe in is Nathanos Marris.http://wow.joystiq.com/2010/08/08/know-your-lore-nathanos-marris-and-the-dark-rangers-of-the-fors/ If Sylvanas is killed I don't see her champion blightcaller being too happy about it...So whoever off's her should probably watch their back..

Dev Watercooler: Faction favoritism {WoW}

Nov 25th 2011 4:56PM I was at a fairground once. A friend I was with was wearing a Manchester city football jersey. A guy in front of us in the the ride queue turned around and without provocation punched him square in the face.

'It's only a game son'

Something rotten,base and pathetic in human beings to draw lines and stand behind them. IT'S A FECKING GAME!
If your team is losing you support them regardless. When they win, you cheer. Stop your girly p*ssy whining and seriously, sort yourself a sense of perspective...The Pearl harbour comparisons? Seriously? You disgust me.


Know Your Lore: Illidan Stormrage, The Betrayer {WoW}

Nov 9th 2011 5:04PM Illidan=Badass. Clearly a lot of love in the room for this character. Who doesn't love an anti- hero. As a random aside, is it just me or is the second image down more than a bit Hugo Weaving? Love to see him get his day in the sun in the Warcraft movie...

How much is a Guardian Cub worth? {WoW}

Nov 6th 2011 5:31AM Hmm EU Darkmoon faire prices are currently 14k top end. Those listings have been there all weekend. A few new ones around the 9k mark are cropping up. There doesn't seem to be any demand at the current price.
I have one listed at just shy of 10k. I don't see it going anywhere now people are listing 1000g cheaper.Be nice if blizzard introduced a vendor rate,so if it does bottom out completely we can still beat the gold sellers..People in this thread waiting on 4-5k??? that's £2 for 1000g. If you look at some of the shifty looking gold seller sites their currency rate works out at €1.27 for 1000G in sterling that's about £1.09... So for doing it safe and legal your paying nearly double....

I've always been poor in wow and totally fine with it :) Addicted to engineering..Cant do without my parachute and rocket belt. :) So I jumped at the chance to make a quick buck. Well, as is true in real life..There are clearly no shortcuts.



Breakfast Topic: Who should play your character in the WoW movie? {WoW}

Oct 27th 2011 9:03AM Ha! Great post for the cinephiles.. I believe someone's already bagged Alan Rickman.. *shakes fist* For my Forsaken hunter a faux Romanian for Stoker Gary Oldman please. :) Praps a younger version could be played by Michael Sheen (we share welsh lineage) :)
My dwarven alt a perma wine basted Gérard Depardieu for sure!...If we're sticking with the in game celt vibe however I'll shotgun James Nesbitt! He so should have been Dr Who..Damn you Peter Jackson!!!


5 reasons you should love Mists of Pandaria {WoW}

Oct 24th 2011 4:48PM That's the crux of the argument right there. People have invested time and money, in my case a shamefully disproportionate percentage of my spare time over the last 5 years...When your THAT invested in something,you don't just 'unsubscribe' you STATE YOUR OPINION, one that I believe I'm entitled to...So I'm going to make it again...

There's been a shift to a more light hearted tone, some like it,some don't..What baffles me is why people don't understand why this is so jarring??

LOOK http://screencast.com/t/FZhK3JMYz You want to play spot the difference?

And i'm not talking about the fact that it's in game vs cg trailer....

If it is indeed all out War (the game is called Warcraft) THAT should have been the trailer..Not the guff we were subjected to..

North Korean school of censorship wards at the ready....One two..three...Downrank into the ink abyss...








5 reasons you should love Mists of Pandaria {WoW}

Oct 24th 2011 4:01PM Does anyone else find the habitual down voting of comments perceived as negative towards this expansion a tad creepy...People are entitled to their opinion.The comments section is for discourse ok..You should not be censoring comments you personally disagree with if the points are well made and polite.

It appears that unless your willing to show boundless enthusiasm your labelled a killjoy and lambasted for p*ssing on the fanboys chips. Listen,it's not trolling,we all love the game, but this direction has polarised the user base. God I hate the term 'marmite reaction' But it's definitely a love or hate reaction to the new content.





Breakfast Topic: Which part of "Mists of Pandaria" has you most excited? {WoW}

Oct 22nd 2011 12:33PM Aww, such a delicate flower...I'm strangely enamoured by the fact you've not been desensitised by TV violence. Mmmm TV violence..You want scary Disney try 'Der Fuehrer's Face' Or just stay perfect princess. Marry me? Sob...

Breakfast Topic: Which part of "Mists of Pandaria" has you most excited? {WoW}

Oct 22nd 2011 9:20AM Well, here's the upside, they've not turned the Forsaken into Pandas...Erm, woot...Meh. It's all gone a bit Disney hasn't it...Which is fine, but it's a bit like a metal band you love 'taking a new direction' which usually means folk or country...Le sigh.
Levelling up in disney land sorry Pandaville will be like a nasty acid trip for my Lordaeron dwelling undead...Maybe we can tw*t these tubby low labido sugar cane munchers with le plague...Improve the atmos a bit?..Murder death kill, plague plague..plague..
Failing that I'll just pretend I'm pumpkin Jack in Christmas land...Errr 'What's this? What's this??..Oh it's a fat drunk bear..I can wear your face?' ..Murder death kill, plague plague..plague..

WoW Insider's BlizzCon 2011 predictions {WoW}

Oct 20th 2011 2:27AM Agreed. Last time I checked this blog isn't called Diablo insider...If this Blizzcon comes and goes with WOW in the back seat, I'll be hard pushed to disguise my disappointment. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Here's to hoping it's not just talent tree's and spit and polish..
