Shifting Perspectives: Flight form, not just for flying anymore {WoW}

Nov 27th 2007 3:48PM A friend of mine does 'tree bombs' he is balance specced and you can (if done very very carefully) start casting Force of Nature, drop the trees on the ground and them go back into flight form leaving the trees attacking the 'mob/player/victim'. Granted its not enough to kill anything on its own, but funny as hell.

World of Carebearcraft {WoW}

Oct 31st 2007 9:03AM I am glad that some people are making the distinction between PVP and ganking, anyone that thinks that a Lvl 70 in tierd armour Vs a lvl 2-40 lowbie is PVP is frankly a little bit wrong in the head.

To those that say 'its war' please actually look at the background of the game you are playing, as many other have said, Alliance and Horde are not at war. Don't make excuses to yourself, if you want to grief lowbies, do so, the game does not stop you, but admit to yourself why you do it, look at what you actually get from it Vs what to take from the other player.

I Play on a RP PVP server, and i do like to do some world PVP now and again, but i never go near a grey, and will go out of my way to stop others from my side ganking them. And when i do attack in PVP i will make sure it is a good fight, they grant you 'HONOR' for the fights for a reason, so i will wait for them to kill any mobs they are fighting, make sure they have seen me before i move in. Why? because i want to feel like i have won the fight, not jumped some lowbie/damaged player for a fast gank.

I would say that in the spirit of the game, i have no problem with rogues jumping people, thats what the lore (and skills) of the class are based on.

The amount of times that i haver been jumped when nearly dead from fighting mobs, killed and then ressed and when i have gone after the person that did it (assuming they are 'roughly the same level i.e. not ??) and faced them off and they have run is silly.

HONOR KILL, remember.

The example given above is perfect, how many 'gankers' would play Halo (etc) if they could not hurt an opponent? if you would, then i respect your attitude, if you would rapidly get bored, have a think about what you are doing next time.

PVP= good
Ganking= NOT PVP

Oct 25th 2007 8:57AM You have nothing to worry about, that made me laugh out loud in work, promting my boss to ask what was so funny! (oops!)

Breakfast Topic: Define this {WoW}

Oct 24th 2007 8:24AM Carebear (noun) a person who does not get an e-peen boost by hunting vastly weaker opponents.

Raider (noun) A person who bases his self esteem on how shiney his pixellated shoulders are.

RP server: a mythical place, rumored to exist but no evidence of it has been seen.

Hands off those shoulders, Arena loser {WoW}

Oct 24th 2007 5:02AM raiders care what gear other people are getting? Why does it threaten you so much? You raid and (i would hope) have fun doing so, why does other people getting nice gear threaten you so much?

If your self esteem is placed in some pixels you have issues.

Play for fun, for the challenge, for the gear, but really don't play a MMO to feel 'better' than someone else, that is not healthy.

Of course in Arena/PVP there is a winner and a looser, but why not just be a gracious winner, there seems to be less and less of that in online games, you fought, one of you won, but surely you both enjoyed the challenge?

Please keep things in perspective, just a thought...

Azeroth Interrupted: Escape from Los Angeles {WoW}

Oct 22nd 2007 10:51AM What worries me is that for over two weeks on my server there has been a goldseller spamming everytime i have gone to org, that shows that the GM's are not doing anything, it's not exactly discrete, yet does not seem to be stopped either. Gold sellers spamming is not what i expected from a RP server :/

Azeroth Interrupted: Escape from Los Angeles {WoW}

Oct 22nd 2007 9:07AM I am new to WOW, i have only been playing for about 2 months, i have played a number of MMO's previously and recently due to finally have some spare time decided to join a group of my RL friends on WOW.

I play on a Euro PVP RP server (mention no names to protect the guilty) and what i was astonished by is the lack of roleplay that goes on. I have always chosen to RP in MMO's as i was one on the D&D tabletop generation and found it gave a more immersive experience to do so.

But even in a game that offers the choice of RP/Non-RP servers, i have found more players that will scorn/mock/ignore attempts to roleplay with them, than want to play the game 'in character'.

Now if this was a game like EVE where you are all on the same server i could understand and respect that choice, however why when Blizzard supply so many servers and even have additional rules for being on a RP server do people refuse to roleplay?

I am not trying to aggravate anyone, but surly if you don't want to roleplay your character why start on a RP server?

Everynow and again i will be questing and bump into a player (from horde or alliance sides, i am horde) and have some great roleplay with them, yes obviously with alliance it is all with emotes but that is fun all of it's own.

I get that not everyone would want to roleplay, it does make it harder to organise instances (what few i have done, i'll admit) but if you dislike the idea of roleplay, why would you start on a RP server?

When i first started i wondered if i should be reporting people for 'breaking character' (as stated in the T&C's of a roleplay server) but within a short space of time i realised that there would be no point it was most people i encountered.

If nothing else it would be nice to play the game with people who are willing to /say things in complete sentences!
