Mar 8th 2011 11:33AM I have to admit I was sorely disappointed with the rated BG's. Like most sentiments here, It is hard to find 9 or 14 other guys to do rated BG's only to sit in a queue and then get ROFLPWNED because you dont have enough CC'ers to stop the damned tanks in SOA (thats a whole other topic IMHO).
Simple solution though....Change the group requirement to a Heroic BG LFG option but impose a gear rating based on resilience, much like getting into a heroic dungeon imposes with gearlevel. This guarantees that the people in the Rated BG's have at least some experience (make it like 2500-3000 resilience to get in), it somewhat guarantees that newbies arent getting ROFLPWNEd, it keeps regular BG's open for the casual types, and it offers more hardcore experience for the leetards.
Just my 2 cents.
Mar 7th 2011 1:21PM awkward...I thought the first post got lost in the shuffle....
Mar 7th 2011 1:19PM I am a male and I play mainly female toons for 1 reason and 1 reason only.....people seem to be nicer to you when you play female toons. Im not sure if people assume I am a female IRL (which I have never tried to deceive anyone) but the responses are definitely different in groups than when I am running my male toons.
Mar 7th 2011 1:13PM Im a guy. I am quite comfortable being a heterosexual male. However, I have a multitude of female toons for 1 reason and 1 reason only......people seem to be nicer when im on my female pally than when I am on my male pally. That being said, I have never tried to deceive anyone that I am a male.
Nov 10th 2010 10:06AM Lately when im not doing anything I have been looking for Mr. Pinchy....and when I get him I am going to RIP OFF HIS PINCERS, BROIL HIM UP, AND EAT HIM WITh A GALLON OF MELTED BUTTER!
People say fishing is a stress reliever....not so much IMHO =D

Nov 2nd 2010 9:21AM Thank you for the article. Im on a very imbalanced realm (70/30- Zangarmarsh) and being on the lower side of that coin means pretty imbalanced Wintergrasp Matches and almost no really serious BG /Arena Guilds forming. I raid seldomly, but I BG religiously so my 4 80's will inevitably be doling out the $$$ to move.
Oct 28th 2010 5:14PM It would be nice if you guys would make a list of what class/build proc is represented by the spell notifications...or is that customizable? With all the changes in the last patch and all the alts I play I still havent figured what abilities are proccing at any given time =(
Oct 26th 2010 1:11PM Im a little opposite I guess...I love to BG...have all of the gear I can possibly get (minus a few pieces that became available with the patch), I have "of the horde" title on my main, and another 75K HK's on my 2 80 alts, and I would rather heal a BG than venture into ICC. BUT I ABSOLUTELY SUCK AT ARENA. There...I said it....
Perhaps its that none of the 2's or 3's partners I ever had were that serious and never really stuck around. Regardless, I have never really been able to break 1600 with the ELO system or 1400 with the new system. And after that my arena self esteem dropped like Hogger to a level 80 Holy Shock. Oh well. I think I need a support group now =D
Oct 25th 2010 10:03AM I am a healer...I have always played healers...I have played healers for 5 years in WoW and currently have 3 80 healers (Pally, Disc Priest, Drood). My main has 127K Honor Kills which also means I know a little about battlegrounds....So heres my question....
I was in an AB random yesterday...I was sitting at #2 in healing with 652K healing...and who do you think was on top? An Effin hunter had 800K in healing. How in the f#$K does a hunter outheal a healer? There were also 2 other healers who had over 500K healing.
