Dropping flag in battle ground gives 3 second debuff? FTL

Oh how I loved Ice Blocking, Removing it and picking back up the flag! A little risky but kinda fun! It made us somewhat viable flag runners! I guess not so much anymore. Why does it seem this debuff punishes the people that were SEMI-GOOD for flag running. What's the point in that?

Hunter's dead zone being removed (not sure if this patch)? FTL
I rem having to deal with big red pets chewing me up on low level battlegrounds. What skill that must have taken to hit 1 button for an easy kill. The only saving grace was landing a frost nova on hunter and non bw'ed pet and get some shots off in dead zone. I'm kinda meh on this one.

Warlocks in patch 2.3: nerfed or fixed? {WoW}

Oct 12th 2007 11:39AM My girlfriend who had never pvp'ed before joined a WSG battle grounds (level 46 human lock) and topped every category (kills, honorable kills, damage done, healing done). This is a bg that alliance loses 90% of the time too. Something is wrong.

Ideas:
Fear needs to require less damage done to break it (scaled in someway based on said feared persons current hp or total hp).

Fear should be used to get distance from the enemy, not get distance AND take away a significant amount of their life.

I've also had the idea that maybe locks should only be able to have a specific DOT on X amount of mobs/people at one time.

To be honest these are just ideas and they might totally not work. Just throwin' some ideas out there.

Another option for new content: factional class flipping? {WoW}

Oct 11th 2007 3:16PM As for the "learn new languages" requests:

What if there was an addon created called "translator". This addon would be installed on accounts that have achieved the required language skill.

You could then have accounts that DON'T have the language skill message this "translator character" with some recognized command sequence (e.g. /t translator-char [person] message). This translator addon would then tell the [person] the translated message. You would basically then always speak through this translator.

In this scenario you could then have people that DON'T have the language communicate to each other without ever getting the "difficult to achieve" language skills.

You could make it so you'd have to pay these translator chars and they'd add you to a list in the addon for say a "weeks" worth of translating. Then translators could even make money off of it! Or use to advertise (e.g. advertisement sent on each message).

Dunno if this is bad or good, but I just had this random thought and thought I'd share lol ....

Results: How did the voice chat rollout go? {WoW}

Oct 5th 2007 11:18AM Chances are, the type of people taking this poll lean more to the hardcore gamer side. (I mean if you read up on everything WoW related it's safe to say that you are not just a casual gamer).

I believe most hardcore gamers know all about the 3rd party chat programs, but one must think of the tons of casual gamers that might not be aware of them.

For the casual gamer, this now makes getting voice chat going extremely easy. Just plug in a mic and go.

It also makes it easy if you are the gamer that meets new people in WoW all the time and doesn't have a set group of guildies that all hang out on your TS/Vent server.

Pros?
- It's really hard to get a brand new group and get them all to join some 3rd party chat program. With in game, this problem is solved.
- Makes it easy for casual gamers or those "technology impaired" to get voice chat going
- You can now switch channels in game to talk to different groups of people without having to switch TS/Vent servers.

Cons?
- Lag? I never got any or saw any so I can't really comment on this.
- Find out a guildy you thought was a woman is actually a man?


Caption This! {WoW}

Oct 3rd 2007 10:32AM Netherwelp: Answer this question and I'll give you your wings. With the recent developments in Eastern Europe, do you think that Communism is on the decline, or is this just a temporary setback?

Murlock: I have to respond with a qualified yes. Although it seems that Socialism is in repose, until you repose the Stalinist era apparatchiks, there will be no real change in the Soviet Union.

Murlock: Err I mean ... Mrrrgllalallallalaaa
