Extended maintenance, some hints of patch 3.0.8 {WoW}

Jan 6th 2009 10:16AM No they didn't put it live yet. At least from what I can tell there is no autodownload of any client patch.

Scouting around with the Crashin' Thrashin' Racer {WoW}

Jan 5th 2009 4:41PM The Eye of Kilrogg that warlocks get is very similar and in fact the toy might be using part of the Kilrogg physics.

A favorite move is aggroing Kael while everyone would be standing around. The fear triggered in 24 other people has often resulted in many lulz (for me alone). He wigs out and despawns immediately after the Kilrog disappears, but it's just too funny to pass up!!!

Teen arrested for making suicide threat to a GM {WoW}

Jan 2nd 2009 12:04PM Good customer service Blizzard. NO SRSLY.

I think this is the best approach. The QQ from bad players using social engineering attempts like crying wolf, faking being suicidal... etc....

These types of bad customers need to have their accounts banned. Also, they need to become friendly with a 300lb dude named Bubba, who lieks mudkipz.

Children pls... grow up and just play the game. Don't whine to Blizzard about your problems. GET HELP WHERE YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO GET HELP.

Round peg does not go in square hole.

The Dos and Don'ts of getting a port {WoW}

Dec 23rd 2008 2:30PM I love your comment about common sense. I have to agree. Sometimes common courtesy feels like a trip to Rome on a Concord, first class. Strangely... considering that common courtesy doesn't cost anything, why is it so rare?

Blizzard adds advertising to the official forums {WoW}

Dec 19th 2008 3:21PM The official forums offer little informational value to me as of late, so I will continue to avoid them.

The official forums are a wretched hive of scum, and villainy.

Do you care about PvP anymore? {WoW}

Dec 16th 2008 2:44PM QQ moar. Bliz has made warlocks so much more fun to play atm.

You only need to roll your face that way also ------------>

Do you care about PvP anymore? {WoW}

Dec 16th 2008 2:41PM Arenas aren't required to do anymore. Do the Wintergrasp raid! It's so easymode!!

And you get loooot. I got 87 Resil on my Hateful Felweave chest, after gems. I'll have sooo much resil by the time I'm done, it's gonna be EPIC!

For me, PvP is about worldpvp, which has certainly been improved in almost every aspect of the game. If you don't like it, don't PvP and also don't whine when you get ganked by someone 3 lvls below you.

I personally think every player would benefit from doing PvP as much as possible, especially if they raid. It's just another part of the game that makes this stuff fun.

With the new Warlock teleport, I get to add so much to my PvP experience. I can blink out of sight and come back dishing more pain, and then blink away again. This experience has made my time in Northrend so enjoyable.

I guess if it's not for you, don't do it! But don't QQ about it.

Employers screening WoW players during recruitment? {Massively}

Dec 16th 2008 1:06PM Tony:

In tough careers, where it matters, you have to be able to handle hard questions. My industry is all about hard questions getting answered, as are most other industries and the questions are not getting easier.

Interviewing is tough business because it's competitive and with all the lay-offs going on now, this is the time to perfect your ability to interview well.

"Do you spend any time playing World of Warcraft."

"No, I'm not sure what that is. Is that on the Wii?"

"Next question... when can you start?"

Employers screening WoW players during recruitment? {Massively}

Dec 16th 2008 12:46PM This response is for Tony:

Actually you can ask ANYTHING you want during an interview. However, the candidate doesn't have to answer if the question steps out of the boundaries, and cannot be penalized for it. Typically, however, the type of reaction the person makes to a question gives you more insight to the personality of the candidate. We care less about the details, but more about how a candidate conducts business.

For careers involving the general public, it's important to ensure that the person being interviewed is able to take hard questions meant to throw them off their game.

You would be surprised if you knew the kinds of questions that we ask regularly. We do it to throw candidates off balance, and that pays off in the long term more than any complaint could cost us.

The amount of bickering people will make in a job interview absolutely floors me every time. You would have to be crazy to pull emotional drama stunts like many potential candidates have in front of one of our panels. But it happens all the time!

Epic win for me, because it keeps my sense of humor going strong.

Employers screening WoW players during recruitment? {Massively}

Dec 16th 2008 12:14PM I recruit new people from time to time, so I'll give you a few tips.

If you are asked anything during a job interview that makes you feel uncomfortable for a split second, the recruiter will pick up on it. That's why we ask these types of questions.

We do not care if you play Warcraft -- we ask this so that we can tell if you have a problem with it. Judging from someone's response, if they are smiling, happy and relaxed about the question, we don't mark them negatively for it. If they clench up -- that's a sure sign that there is a major problem with the candidate.

Preparation can prevent fear from triggering a terrible response during an interview.

I teach preparation as the salvation for anyone being interviewed. Don't talk about your kid sister with autism and how you're a better person because you had to change her diapers when she was growing up. That is inappropriate and disgusting. If you want to talk about how you championed someone with a disability, just say it like that. I took care of my kid sister growing up, and she had autism, and only through my efforts did she have a higher quality of life.

Recruitment is a competition, and sadly the best person rarely wins. But at least the worst person always loses and that is why we recruit.

We never recruit the best person for the job. That would be too expensive. We are trying to ensure that the worst people are excluded and what I have found is that many WoW players are just insecure about their involvement with the game and therefore they are less likely to exceed in our firm.

We're looking for confident, competitive and intriguing people who know conversational limits and how to act in public. All the companies I've worked with are only looking for similar candidates and sadly, if you play Warcraft, you top the list of the inept sleep-deprived nerdlinger masses.

I play the game, and love it. Would I mention it in an interview? Hell no. That would be crazy. That's like admitting you steal pens. Everyone steals pens but you'd better not put that down on your application.
