Sep 26th 2009 7:44PM I've noticed a tone change in his posts of late and I'm not surprised he is going to take some time out. I personally thing the wotlk has brought some great sweeping changes across the board and yet morale seems to be at its lowest. I honestly don't think they can win whatever they do.
- Content is accessible to everyone yet there are still fights which are extremely hard, I honestly think even the most elite raiding guilds like premonition and stars are happy with the difficulty of the likes of yogg+0
- More DPS specs are viable and closer then ever before. Gone are the days of only having 1 viable for each class
I suggest we go back to wow forums being void of any direct contact with only CM posts and Greg and co only make contact on PTR and Beta forums. I can't say I've actually used the wow forums for years, in is currently full of people who seem to think its a community project who complain when their suggestion isn't picked up on.
Yes the balance isn't perfect but you know what? I never expect it ever will be, there will always be someone who is the flavour of the month so I suggest rather than moan about it you get yourself a few alts and broaden your horizons a bit.

Sep 1st 2009 3:11AM When I'm not at home i currently raid with an HP TX2 which is a small touch screen laptop.
At the moment you cannot really control your character movement using touch screen:
- Its too sensitive and puts you in a spin if you are outside the centre inch of the screen
- you have a frikin' hand in the way so you can't see whats going on!
What i do at the moment is have one hand on the keyboard for movement and another one on the screen pressing action bar buttons and poking people. Our tanks love to be healed by stroking.
At the moment touch screen in general for domestic computing is nothing more than a gimic, if a program or OS in general isn't designed to be touch driven it just doesn't work as well as old fashioned methods

Wisdom reduces the cost of your healing by 5%
Light increases your healing done by 5%
Aug 2nd 2008 5:48AM No need to appologise, I think you've summed up the something which this game lacks a lot of, The Human element and courtesy.
An MMO at the end of the day is a game you play with thousands of people, if they are all arseholes what is the point of playing.
Jul 21st 2008 4:50PM although this will vastly improve the varity of pets for it to be truely useful they need to allow you to call your pet from either of your 3 Stable slots whilst out in the field so you can pick the right tool for the job at hand rather picking the pet which is generally the best all rounder
Jul 6th 2008 1:55PM I could not agree more. So the EU are bringing in a law to stop people using Illegal File Sharing networks this is a bad thing how? They are even giving you tree chances to stop it.
Apart from the video i don't see how this will effect WoW. This will effect people who are caught using Illegal file sharing networks not those uses things like Bit Torrent for downloading WoW patches or the newest version of their favourite Linux distro.
I do find the wording very strange though. "they'll blacklist your IP for life", surely that means you could just change ISP and thus get a different wan IP
Mar 20th 2008 12:17PM As others have said, leveling a Paladin as prot isn't difficult in fact i would recommend it. Nothing quite like seeing 8 mobs beat themselves to death of your shield and still finishing the fight with full health.
Mar 20th 2008 8:13AM Are any of them really "Difficult" to level?
Only difficulty come in making sure you have enough Water/Food to deal with the downtime.
I leveled my priest as Holy, at no point did i think it was hard, it was just slow.
Feb 26th 2008 7:31PM Ah bless all the paranoid people, Raiders aren't dying.
Its just blizzard compacting the time it takes to go through all their instances to avoid a repeat of Naxx.
As they tend to stack all their content you would usually have to rerun the instances over and over until you have the gear level to progress to the next one. Now you run the instance less before you are geared for the next one so that you can see everything before its too late. If this wasn't the case they wouldn't have added BoJs to raid bosses.
I would personally like it if they had a unique set of reward for those that don't like raiding, even if its a recolour like the Arena stuff.
I leave you with this thought, if raiding is dying why do they spend so much time making new content for it, what has PvP seen in TBC? One new Battleground with bases cut and paste from other areas.
