Aug 8th 2007 11:30AM Sorry to post (somewhat) off topic but our "casual raiding guild" actually just fell apart due to people being unable to agree on what "casual" actually meant.
So we have decided to start our WoW life over on a new server. If you are an experienced player who would like to start your WoW life over please check us out on trouble.guildlaunch.com and if you like what you see, drop us an app.
Aug 7th 2007 10:21AM And what exactly is wrong with "formulaic"? Harry Potter is pretty formulaic, so are most popular TV shows like Sex and the City, Friends, Signfield. Yet they managed to insert something new and exciting and fun into the "formula" that people had grown to love and expect. I don't want to go to a X-Men movie to see a romantic comedy - I want cool effects and some action. I don't want to log onto WoW to find a completely different game.
Apr 5th 2007 10:56AM @5 Longday, Xperl will do that for you but after about 30 mins I found it so distracting I had to turn it off and make it into static frames.
Mar 12th 2007 9:24AM If you don't want to take the time to help someone out and answer dumb question then recruiting them to play WoW is absolutely the wrong thing to do. On the other hand it could have great rewards. My boyfriend took a couple months from raiding on his level 60 to make a new toon with me and level together all the way to 60, so we could start raiding together. But now his warrior has a holy priest anytime he wants to run an instance (and I am around). I am sure I was annoying, asked dumb questions and lacked WoW etiquette in the beginning but I learned.
Mar 20th 2006 9:22PM The comments about the game being boring are not quite right... It is quite addictive as I can attest being a young professional woman - not the strereotypical audience for online gaming. As has been said before - if I could spend my whole time playing WOW I would. And "grinding" or just repetitive actions that make you money is not exactly boring it's just less exciting than the other things a player could be doing with his time in the game. I do not buy gold because of a personal "fairness" principle but I cannot fault those who do.
Also, as someone living in Shanghai I think it impossible to completely understand the level of poverty that exists here until you see it first hand. Ten dollars an hour is a fortune in a country where unskilled and semi-skiller laborers make about 80 cents an hour and somehow survive. Living in the US I used to resent the gold farmers, now I understand that they are really trying to survive, there is no safety net here.
If you want to stop this issue - stop the buyers of the gold.
