Breakfast Topic: What post-launch game features do you most appreciate? {WoW}

Jan 26th 2011 8:05AM It has to be the dungeon finder tool. Not having to beg in chat for people to join you group turned running instances from a chore into a pleasure. OK maybe not a pleasure given the number of times a PUG contains morons who won't stay away form the fire and end up leaving the healer OOM.
But every now and then you get a group that has an awesome tank and decent DPS' and you (as a healer) can do your job without having a panic attack every 10 seconds and that makes the game worthwhile.

Breakfast Topic: How do you feel about the new LFG system? {WoW}

Oct 30th 2009 12:15AM I know that gear does not equal better players but getting people into more and more groups where they have to pull their weight will hopefully improve their technique. And if they have better gear it will hopefully plaster over some of their inadequacies.

Of course nothing will stop people from being asses and agroing the entire instance and getting everyone killed.

Breakfast Topic: How do you feel about the new LFG system? {WoW}

Oct 29th 2009 9:06AM I love the idea of the new LFG system. It means that you should be able to get some sort of instance run at any time of day or night. More runs = better gear = better players.

Teleporting will be a godsend and now my lowbie alts will be able to run instances like Ragefire Chasm and the Stockades without dying a million times to get there.

Also I think the expectations placed on players will be lower, you will always run the risk of getting a useless player, this just means that people will queue up more and hopefully get the experience they need to turn into decent players.

Breakfast Topic: They just don't get it... {WoW}

Oct 19th 2009 8:34AM My favourite is still Clarice Foster in Thunder Bluff. Nice Silence of the Lambs/Jodie Foster reference.

Breakfast Topic: When real life Cataclysms hit {WoW}

Oct 1st 2009 9:33AM I separated from my wife about a year ago and even though
I had friends around me I had a lot of time to myself, especially during the Christmas holidays.

I have to say that without WoW to keep my mind off reality during that time I would have been much worse off that I am now. My friends in the game and the game itself kept me going.

Is WoW's audience still increasing? {WoW}

Sep 30th 2009 3:08AM More likely scenario is that Blizzard froze its China numbers on the day the old system went down.

Any increase has been from Chinese players moving to the Taiwanese servers and natural growth in the international player base.

They probably have not reported their numbers because doing so at the moment would either be dishonest or show a huge drop because China is offline. I guess they will give China time to get back up to speed and then give us a true reflection of the subscriber numbers.

I expect to see a noticable drop in the numbers because not everyone that was playing in China will start again.

Breakfast Topic: What race would you change to? {WoW}

Sep 23rd 2009 9:30AM I can't wait to switch my night elf druid to a Worgen. Howling at the moon FTW

Missing help for World Explorers {WoW}

Sep 11th 2009 2:30AM I don't even know why you need an addon for this. I did it by looking at my map and the achievement list. And if I was stumped a quick visit to the web, although that only happened once or twice.
