Dec 10th 2008 3:07PM As a long time nostromo user there are two issues I see with the design of this device:
1- the D-pad / hat stick doesn't have enough of an angle for proper thumb engagement. Pushing your thumb forward on the nostromo actually pushed the D-pad forward where as this stick will go diagonal with that same motion because of the poor positioning.
2- one of the strengths of the nostromo compared to the Saitek and possibly this device is the key alignment. Staggered key columns only work well on keyboards and not these devices. Keys should be arranged in rows and clearly defined columns for ease of indexing with fingers.
Oct 21st 2008 4:56PM I am completely and totally offended by what this guild is doing. I amazes me that this type of behavior is actually celebrated one day a year. Horde and Alliance together!?!?!?! That is just disgusting.
Sep 12th 2008 9:32AM As an altaholic I love RAF. I used my paladin on an unlinked account to power level 2 groups of 2 characters(mage/lock and warrior/priest) to 60 and then granted my hunter to level 60. All for a grand total of ~54 hours played.
Thank you Blizz.
Sep 5th 2008 4:59PM I agree with you. Glyphs will not be cheap. They use mats that are used by other professions so do you really think an inscriber will take 300g worth of herbs and turn it into a 50s glyph?
Respecing sucks but it is a fixed fee. The will not be. Part of the allure of playing a hybrid is the versatility and strapping us with the glyph system in its current form takes a lot of that away.
Also I think glyphs are going to be very powerful. To comment on the reply from the other poster when you switch roles based on what you raid needs why would they give you a spot as a boomkin if you will be say 10% less effective at it than a glyphed boomkin. Considering guilds generally complain about people showing up with PVP spec's will they be more accepting of off-spec glyphs?

True you have to switch weapons or gear but these weapons and gear live in your bag and don't get deleted or need to be deleted when you respec.
Basically you will end up with a world where everyone is PVP or Raid spec'd with matching glyphs and will not respec or change roles to help a group. The 50g cost of a respec will be nothing compared to replacing all your glyphs each time you respec.
Sep 5th 2008 11:19AM So now every time I respec on a hyrbid class (druid, paladin, shaman) I will need to buy all new glyphs and i won't be able to respec more than once per hour.
I don't like it. Esp since Blizz is talking about making a more friendly way to respec with dual specs etc... Now If I respec I will need to find an inscriber or hope for my glyphs on the AH. Not good.
The glyphs need to be items that can be swapped as many times as you want maybe with some cooldown.
Aug 29th 2008 8:58AM Given the staggering amount of keyboard turning rogues with S2 maces I see in AV as of late I would say that the n00b population is alive and well.
Aug 6th 2008 11:11AM What are your thoughts on the size of the feral talent tree?
It seems to me that you will end up with 3 different specs in just the feral tree (DPS/PVP/Tank). It also seems that having to go 16 points into resto (standard 14 + 2 for master shapeshifter) to derive full DPS and threat building benefit is a bit excessive. Bit excessive meaning the 2 points for master shapeshifter would be helpful in the feral tree.
Jun 26th 2008 3:50PM People keep making the statement that WoW was buggy when it first came out and thus it is ok for AoC to be as well. This is a very stupid argument to make. This is like saying that Honda's cars didn't have a lot of features in the early 80s so it is alright for Hyundai to bring out the equivalent of a 1981 Civic today.
In terms of people spending money it doesn't matter where your product was, it matters where it stands at the time a purchase is to be made.
Feb 4th 2008 12:02PM I'd love to understand how some of the above posters think that buying or selling an account hurts other players or even blizzard for that matter.
I understand that it is against ToS. Fine I think we all understand that those are the rules to use the service. That being said to think that some damages are done to other players by trading /selling accounts is insane.
1) A player could level a toon of that class to 70 in a month.
2) Even in the most competitive area, arena, where a personal beating you reduces your arena point capital which is used for character progression: if you are losing to that toon, it really doesnt matter who owns the account does it? The damage is being done to you by the existence of that toon / class regardless of ownership.
3) A player can't do some cool exploit on a bought account that he/she can't do on a normal account.
I understand can understand Suzy Soccer-mom being upset about people doing this because it is against the ToS but I'd love for anyone to demonstrate actual damages.
