Dec 20th 2008 10:57AM That's true, but Aspect of the Hare isn't a conglomerate; it's a single blogger. If it was a news site or something, then it'd be cool, but it's her personal blog.
Dec 18th 2008 6:25PM "Aspect of the Hare" is the name of the blog, "Pike" is the name of the blogger. Saying the blog made the post is non-sensical and a little creepy.
Nov 30th 2008 3:19PM I don't know for certain, but I can offer my opinion on the removal of aircraft in Wintergrasp: they were unbelievably one-sided.
The problem was that once someone was in an aircraft, they were almost impossible to kill. Aircraft couldn't be attacked by regular attacks; they had to be taken out by either other vehicles or by static turrets. You can pretty much exclude the vehicles since their weapons were utterly useless for the job.
That leaves turrets, but between reload time, lag, and the speed at which aircraft moved, you just could not take them out. I remember one Wintergrasp in beta where the Alliance aircraft just sat above the keep and killed people inside with impunity because they sat just outside of the range of the turrets.
In the end, I suspect that Blizzard just couldn't balance the buggers. Maybe they'll bring them back when they introduce flak cannons. :)
Oct 19th 2008 5:55PM "There is no Dana, only Zul."
Basically, there is no Arthas any more; nor is there Ner'zhul. There's just The Lich King (see Ner'zhul's comment from War III: "now we are one.")
People call him/it "Arthas" because, I suspect, it's shorter than "The Lich King" and because it looks an awful lot like him. Also, if you shout it out in a crowded room, he's the one who turns around.
I guess it helps that it's also a good name for shouting. "Arthaaaaaaaaas!"
Oct 12th 2008 7:45PM I don't know how you personally handle it, so I won't address you specifically, but this whole "we're out of summons, let's find more people!" behaviour really gets up my nose; it's incredibly selfish and greedy.
If I go with a group of people who each have a summon, I get five chances at a drop. If I go with a group who have used their summons, I get one chance. Yes, you have improved your chance to get the drop you want, but you've gone and screwed me over for the day.
Combine this with groups who outright lie about having summons so they can use people, and it really makes me wish you could slap people over the internet. That, or that Blizz locked people out of the event if they don't have a summon.

"Drop your panties Sir Arthur, I cannot wait 'till lunchtime!"
Sep 14th 2008 1:57AM Hey, at least I got my name in there! :D So that was you that asked me to /wait outside Breanni's shop.
Apr 1st 2008 10:04AM I've found that turning off Hardware Sound fixes the issues. From the look of things, Blizzard is using a new/updated sound library that doesn't work well with hardware sound drivers.
Unlike, you know, every other piece of software I have ever used on my computer. Or any of my previous ones going back to the days of DOS where getting any sound at all was no small miracle.
Apr 1st 2008 10:02AM WWS will be unaffected. WWS relies on the external combat log: that is, the Logs\CombatLog.txt file where WoW dumps *all* combat events. This is just talking about the events it keeps around in-game (ie: how far back you can scroll.)
Mar 31st 2008 8:57AM The second worst had to be Gadgetzan to whatever that place in Silithus just inside the border is called. You know, back *before* there was a flight path at Marshal's Refuge... Now that was a killer. Even worse when you realised that it probably would have been easier and quicker to have gotten the flight path ten levels ago, just so you could get back to Un'Goro faster!
The very worst of all, however, is the Night Elf Druid level 16 Sea lion form quest. For those that don't know, it's Moonglade -> Auberdine -> Menethil -> Thelsammar -> Ironforge -> Stormwind -> Sentinel Hill -> Coast of Westfall, and *then* you have to find a ship that's sunken off the shelf in the fatigue zone, given the unimaginably vague directions you're given, and loot a chest from it.
Back before you even knew Thottbot existed...
It was so bad, that I used to make a habit of checking in /1 when I passed through Darkshore to see if any young druids needed help on the run. I must have run about half a dozen people through that.
If I ever meet whoever designed that quest, they'd better hope they're a Paladin and that Divine Shield and their Hearthstone are off cooldown...
