Breakfast Topic: The oldest WoW player you know {WoW}

Jan 7th 2009 9:12AM The oldest person in our guild is a lady that is 50 years old. We have several people in their 40s, a whole load in their (late) 20s and 30s, and a few under 20.

We don't select on age, just on personality. If you're fun to hang out with, you 're in. For raiding we have some stricter rules tho, to make sure we get anywhere, but age is not one of them :).

It's fun to have all these ages in one group, and I enjoy talking to our youngest members as much as to our older members. They're all just great people :).

The Guardian on The Guild {WoW}

Dec 23rd 2008 3:08AM /signed

I see a whole lot of envy from these haters, probably to do with the fact that The Guild signed up with MS, and that something with minimal resources gets so much attention (warranted or not).

I understand that it's not everyone's cup of tea. Maybe it's hitting too close to home for them, and they don't like being made fun of. Because that is what the show does: it creates caricatures of MMO players. And you need to have a sense of humour to accept that.

Breakfast Topic: Playing at work {WoW}

Dec 17th 2008 9:14AM *raises hand*

I don't play WoW at work tho, but I spend quite an absurd amount of time on forums and sites like WI when I don't have a lot of work.

Breakfast Topic: The tanking shortage {WoW}

Dec 3rd 2008 8:31AM Remember that you'll need to have two different gear sets as well. And I'm not sure the tanks that you play with will appreciate you rolling on their gear as well. Of course, if you just greed it, so they can need it, I guess that isn't a big problem.

Breakfast Topic: The new 5-mans {WoW}

Nov 24th 2008 8:52AM So far, I've done:
Utgarde Keep, Utgarde Pinnacle
The Nexus, The Oculus
Violet Hold
Halls of Lightning (Heroic)
Gundrak (Heroic)
Drak'Tharon Keep
Azjol-Nerub
Ahn'kahet (up till 3rd boss, didn't have enough dps)
Culling of Stratholme (Heroic)

So I only have Halls of Stone left :)
Only one I didn't really like so far was Utgarde Keep. The rest of the instances are awesome. First boss in Gundrak is a b*tch on heroic. I didn't finish DTK because I dc'ed during the final boss fight (good thing everyone can tank there :D).

Times Online examines WoW's zombies and the connection to real life {WoW}

Oct 30th 2008 3:57AM There's actually a lawsuit going on at the moment in the Netherlands (where I live) against several men who are suspected of willingly and knowingly infecting others with HIV during sexparties.
I've also heard of stories where people would try to get HIV. So the idea of people willingly chasing a disease isn't as far-fetched as it sounds. There's some sick (pun not intended) people in the world. Of course, it wouldn't be in the same numbers as people trying to become zombies in WoW.

Mila Kunis quits WoW, breaks nerd hearts everywhere {WoW}

Oct 19th 2008 5:21PM I think it's great to see people that are in the spotlight talk about being fanatical gamers, because it does help the rest of us to shed the rep of being nerds and social misfits who have no life (at least most of us don't fit that bill ;)).

As for hot women playing WoW, I think it's more common than people think. Lots of girls get into it because of their boyfriend playing it, and of course some are daring enough to get into it on their own. I for one welcome it, because it's fun to play with both men and women together.

Oh, and Vin Diesel playing D&D was a big revelation for me, I love it :D.

Breakfast Topic: Your Hallow's End goals {WoW}

Oct 18th 2008 11:56AM But the Iron Maiden song is cooler :P.

"Leading the Cavalry" achievement lowered to 50 mounts {WoW}

Sep 26th 2008 3:53AM I think they can up it a bit, screw the cows :P.
I can currently get 56 mounts without a problem. I'll need to spend a bit of cash on the mounts, but it's only gold, so who cares ;).

Background downloader primed for content patch {WoW}

Sep 11th 2008 3:03AM I think that all rep mounts (netherwing, sha'tari, CE) will all still be available in the game. The only mount that won't be attainable anymore after 3.0 is the bear mount from ZA, because getting it at level 70+ would become trivial.
