Feb 9th 2009 9:20PM Bummer. Looks like I offended some complete stranger in my strenuous efforts to be cooler than he. Next time I'll use only Battlestar Galactica quotes and references to sugar cookies. Here's hoping that won't come off as "trying so hard to be cool."
Then again, since I don't have any sugar cookies in my apartment, I'm probably deeply offending any stereotypical geeks out there whose literalist pedantry drives them into a rage at anything that isn't explicitly verified, then double checked by Wikipedia user "5nap3kill5dumbeldor3".
And since I've only watched like 3 episodes of BSG I'm running the risk of alienating that show's millions of rabid fans!
Wow, "wtfman," thanks a ton for bringing to light my failings. I guess the only way out is suicide.
(Note: Someone make sure to tell him that that also wasn't entirely literal. Hopefully I'll be dead before I have to read his tirade against my obviously trying so hard to be cooler than all those people who actually did commit suicide over his wicked e-barbs.)
Jul 3rd 2006 2:50AM Oooooh! Improved Evis damage!
When do we find out how much?
May 29th 2006 10:07PM "Noob", and the even more idiotic "nub", are insults that make me assume the insulter is a 16 year old basement dwelling wretch. It's not even the sort of insult that you can use ironically, thusly challenging that idea.
The moral of the story: Swears are always best.
May 25th 2006 10:11PM Nice work Blizz.
It's good to see Blizz take such a proactive stance on this sort of thing as compared to SOE. That's why they get my money.
Also, my insatiable love for murlocs helps.
May 25th 2006 10:08PM Simulating a video game seems kind of... redundant, don't ya think?
May 25th 2006 10:07PM As much as Naxxramas is probably the single instance I've been most excited about ever, I think I'll wait for it to hit the public servers. I just can't bring myself to make any effort on a test realm where my work will be wiped out as soon as the patch in testing goes live.
May 25th 2006 10:01PM In truth, I havent done a PuG for probably 6 months now. Once you get your tier 0 (or the newfangled .5 for you damn kids these days) there isnt much reason to do PuG's if you have a guild.
I will say though, when I was still doing PuG's, I didn't find them to be all that bad. I'd get a group with an idiot in it probably 1 out of every 5 times, and even then if you explain things to the person, they usually catch on, unless they're just a griefer. And, if they are, you can, at least, have some fun insulting them.
Maybe Uther is just a good server for the general public.
May 25th 2006 9:55PM Yeah, I know I've seen this at least a year ago.
May 25th 2006 9:54PM With my 60 Night Elf Rogue one of my favorite past times is to sneak into Orgrimmar to do all of my trading.
Since they linked the chat for all of the cities, if you're an Alliance in Orgrimmar, you can speak to people in Darnassus, IF and SW too.
People become absolutely dumbfounded when you offer them 130g for an enchantment and then tell them to meet you at Thrall.
