Keeping the wife happy: Wrath style {Massively}

Nov 18th 2008 12:51PM If you haven't been there you wouldn't know, and it's insulting and ignorant to just write this lady off as "crazy". The kind of obsessive-compulsive you are used to hearing about is actually quite rare. OCD is usually a mild condition that most people never have diagnosed. If you knew just how many people are walking around every day with some mild disorder or other it would astonish you. As creepy or hard as it might sound to live with someone who has OCD, it's much harder to actually live with it. There are obviously things he likes about this lady, so cut her some slack.

Secondly, I could understand if he just didn't like the game and wanted to play something else. Everyone gets burned out at some point, but he never says that. Instead, he flat out states that he overreacted (ragequit) in a disagreement with someone he will never know in person and that he just doesn't mesh well with that guild. In the process of quitting, he's left his wife and long time best friend alone in a game where one of the primary draws is social interaction, and they are both upset by this. It all sounds very "taking my ball and going home". In the process, he has created an embarrassing and stressful situation for his wife which has got to be causing her all manner of grief, all because he couldn't get along with a *stranger*.

Look, membership in any given guild is contingent on how well your personality fits with the rest of the guild. It often does not work out. So you change guilds. These are not people you are building any lasting relationship with, they are people who share your hobby and that's about it. Real life relationships should always carry a bit more weight. This is something that makes her happy, so how about some compromise? How about, for instance, "I will play wow with you, but we have to find another guild/server"? It's not like he can never play other games, and considering that she is excited about the expansion and leveling characters, raiding won't even become important for a couple months.

It's selfishness, entitlement, and the inability to see something from another person's view that breaks relationships. It's not simply expecting your partner to join you in activities you like.

Tenris Mirkblood will only be around for "approximately 10 days," says Tigole {WoW}

Oct 27th 2008 12:23PM It is temporary and will only last, at most, another 3 weeks. There are really not that many people leveling characters who do not also have a level 70 that could come kick some zombie ass. If there are organized groups of zombies going to low level areas, then it would be just as easy to organize a group of zombie hunters to protect those areas. We have local defense channels and even level 1 characters can run to a city for global chat.

This is a *role-playing* game. If you don't want to participate, you have to think around the event and work up a strategy for avoiding the plague. The major population centers are mostly infected, but the wilds are not, and there are still plenty of mobs to be found. Instances are safe, obviously.

This is a huge, one-time, lore-changing world event. As someone said above, they have certainly given us a great reason to want to exact some revenge. Quit baaaaawwwwing and try enjoy doing something a little different.

New hairstyles in Wrath of the Lich King revealed {WoW}

Aug 1st 2008 4:32PM Guys... take a deep breath and calm yourselves.

The fact that these are datamined, if real at all, and not in the beta means that they are in an early state of development. An obvious step for someone developing this feature is to use existing hair meshes to see how well they snap on.

You are complaining about the cupcakes not having icing before they are even out of the oven.
