Jun 2nd 2009 3:07PM Nice little story, but I have to say, if you play on a PvE server still... I'd say they were pretty much the "noobish days of present day".
May 19th 2009 1:37PM That comment about the hunter going afk and being top 3? Either outright say the rest of the DPS in your guild is VASTLY subpar, or show us a screenshot.
Exaggerations of this scale give me a case of the lulz.
Apr 23rd 2009 8:09AM Meh. Really missed my shot. Betting not miss this one too!
Apr 15th 2009 10:08PM Alex, you might wanna tone down the usage of "a whirl". Seeing it twice in the same article (previous to this one) and seeing it again shortly after is a little... annoying.
I don't know why it's annoying. It just is.
You might wanna give that thought a whirl.
Apr 6th 2009 6:13PM Hmm... some things in Naxx I had no idea about before. I'm glad I came here first.

Every time Blizzard caves in to QQ, I get a little bit more worried and a little bit more frustrated. It has gone from one extreme to another, without seeming to find an oasis of satisfaction in between the two. Although I understand that a lot of this game (less now, but still) requires more time to complete than the casual players has to spend, some things should remain that way regardless!
The way it seemed to me was that an MMO, unlike a console game or any other game genre, was somewhat of an epic undertaking. Things take time for a reason: It's meant to be a MASSIVE WORLD. It's meant to FEEL that way. If you wanted to solo an instance, or teleport yourself everywhere well, there's always Diablo. Waypoints anyone? WoW was meant to be different and I hope it remains that way.
Sorry Casuals, but your QQ has indeed "optimized" alot of what made the game so daunting. Personally, using a 30min HC would feel like cheating to me. But I guess that's because I'm from the days of Vanilla WoW and I remember with nostalgia how immense and real the world felt back then.
Feb 17th 2009 2:49PM Hahah, this is awesome. Well written and you managed to get me hooked and leaning in with just a few paragraphs.
Feb 9th 2009 7:21PM Oh, to be brutally honest here, there wasn't a single Horde who managed to get 5 steps beyond the dock. All were pulled into the abyss.
I rolled a DK as soon as I heard and I was up all night throwing people into nothingness. Amazing fun and great distraction from my Baron grind... (53 times and counting).
