Jul 7th 2010 12:43PM In general i think it might be a good idea, though somewhat "revolutionary" to internetusers that are used to their anonymity. Perhaps it helps to reduce flaming / trolling / and so on, when people have to show who they really are. Time will tell how many idiots have got enough balls to still spam the forums.
On the other hand it's a little bit like biometric Data on RFID Chips on Passports - which I do not support.
May 26th 2010 8:49AM Well, as Etreya wrote, it is true that stockades was never designed with the LFD Tool in mind and thus, there are some Problems.
As to why there is almost no blue Loot from the instance - I believe the Bossloot was removed with low Level PVP in mind, since the Instance was almost not accessible to Horde Characters therefore unbalancing the PVP at that Characterlevel.
Yet, I do not think that this - or for that matter any of the other vanila dungeons with similar Problems - need a revamp. These days Its just a short trip on a much faster way to max Level, something new to see with little impact on the game experience.

I cannot really understand that kind of attitude. Usualy "if they are good" means to me "if they survive througout the fight to do more damage" not "if they pewpew as much as they can and see when the tank looses Agro".
Especially when trying something out of the ordinary, like having a shaman tank, it can also be fun for the rest of the raid to adapt to the situation. It's not something that is done on a regular basis, it's not about loot, it's about trying something special, something out of the ordinary, and succeeding with it.
Unfortunately doing things an extraordinary way is beeing discourraged by Bliz, like Smiters oder Rogue-Tanks before, because they fear it might become a habbit if it works too well, or at least that's what it seems like to me.

Dec 29th 2008 5:03AM What in-game druids probably have in common with RL druids is the word "Nature", just like the in-game Warrior has the word "fight" in common with its medieval counterpart from a historical point of view. ("Zomfg! MeLord, the enemy is at our gates!" "Looking for Tank!")
Anyway, I do not think this is the right place to discuss RL Religions. There have been quite a few wars - actually there are still some going on - that used religion as a means of recruiting the simple minded or those with nothing to lose to fight for their cause in the name of a greater go(o)d.
That Kia saw herself forced to write a comment on how she saw her druidic religion mistakenly related to wicca already shows that there is potential for conflict. Personaly, i prefer angosticism, but hey, who am i to tell others what to believe in as long as they don't hurt others and are happy with it.
So if you want information, go get some. There's sites you can find it at. Try Wikipedia or Google for starts.
Sep 6th 2008 4:45AM Well, another Raidwide +3% to Hit Buff (or debuff in this case)? Though the discussion about that kind of Buff is going on, it seems like Hit-Rating is one of the Stats we will not need to gear up for in LK Raids.

Jan 1st 2008 5:40PM @ Matt:
Of course I am aware that some of my opinions are not shared by a majority - which is a pity - and certainly some of the issues I criticize (most of which i do not state here) are not resulting from republican decisions allone.
Yes, you are right, as long as the ralley does not violate the ToS, Blizard does not have to do anything against it.
What I did was simply stating my opinion on the matter, which is that this is immoral. Just like an Army sponsoring an Egoshooter or Toy-lookalike Handgrenades and Mines.
What I am talking about is trustworthy information about "men in black" (of course not movie-like, but for the sake of understanding) taking pictures of the participants of civil rights movement sessions, stating "mind your own business" when asked for the reasons, US booksellers reporting about beeing constrained to passing on their customer information to governement institutions. About Bush not signing Kyoto Protocol and blocking the Bali conference from getting any real results while on the other hand claiming a more environement friendly policy. About not neutraly enough supporting a near east peace sollution between israel and the palestinnians while on the other hand fighting terrorism with weapons restrictions where more intensive developement aid and non-religious education and most of all equal economical chances would be needed to win the hearts of the people in the countries concerned.
Of course these (and more things that remain unstated) are matters that could be controversially discussed for ages without actually finding any agreement, and I have given my vote to people smarter than me to discuss them for me.
I'm just not into trying to gull "future voters" into my party in front of schools (as an extreme rightwing political party in my country does, which in my opinion should be prohibited as well) or, as in this case, in Games.
I don't mind anybody walking their Chars together from a to b, but please - do this in the spirit of friendship, comeradeship or similar, not for politics.
Dec 28th 2007 6:00AM replying DurWrathi:
I'll try to keep this short. Sorry for any misspellings, english is not my native language.
Considering that my hostmother is part of the american civil rights movement, which is under close observation by the national security for decades (does anybody ever notice the irony of that?), it may be small wonder that i do not have a high oppinion of republicans. But as it seems every country gets the president (or whatever kinds of statesmen) they deserve. Myself, being a jewish descendant undenominational german, i tend to have a sceptical look at things anyway.
Maybe from half a globe away things tend to have a different look, but considering the republican policy in general, which often is conservative at best, and its results in the new modelled security state of america with questionable christian practices, america under republican lead seems no less dangerous and out of controll to me than the so much feared "rouge countries".
Republicans try to give themselves a look of a modern and fun to be with bunch, disguising their bourgeois style under a modern coating, alluring people with their alleged coolness and the next thing you know, you're wearing a silver ring-thingy and you're off to war in the next best country that doesn't do what america wants them to. Let's not even talk about international environemental questions. An don't forget: God made you, not some strange kind of evolution.
I really do hope that this rally will not be approved by Bliz as much as i hope that any recruitement for suicide bombings would not be approved either.
I do not think that supporting a warmonging party by giving them a platform for recruitement in a manner as stated above is moral in any way. These malicius propaganda has nothing to do with respect anymore. What's going on out there is another cold war. No need to let it get into this game as well.
Temperateness is the way to good co-existance.
But there's no need to let yourself be utilized in any way.
Dec 5th 2007 6:17PM I think it would be to easy to justify anything with an "Hey, I'm paying you for this sh**, so I'm the one telling you what is to be done.."-attitude. That's not the way things work.
I think as it is, WoW has been improving more and more since beta and except for some.. errr.. glitches... and the team is doing a great job balancing the game in a way that makes it fun to play.
On the other hand, try and find a few hundred people who would quit playing if the summoning stones would not be changed (and go though with it), now that might work.. a few months after they quit. :D
