Feb 10th 2007 7:26PM I go into the Stormwind bank for the first time and see that all three windows are busy, notice the ropes that cordon off a waiting area and proceed to stand in line.
I twigged when someone else just ran up to the window without stopping, though my first thought was "HEY! You can't just cut in line..oh...right."
Jan 15th 2007 5:00PM Going to pre-pay for my pre-ordered copy at lunchtime today (Australia), then back to EB Games @ 11pm when they open for the midnight launch. The game itself should be put in my hands around midnight. I'm taking Monday off, but I'm thinking that I'm coming down with something and won't be able to go to work tomorrow...*cough*

I *love* Bongos.
I discovered it post-patch, when FlexBar and CTBarMod bit the dust. I remapped my key-bindings the other night, using ESDF and the surrounding keys, and I've got the buttons laid out on the screen just like the keyboard to help me learn the mappings.
Dec 13th 2006 11:16PM The influx of corporate marketers into Second Life is the primary reason I have never tried it. It does offer things like Harvard's CyberOne extension course which sound interesting and worthwhile, but tricking out my toon in the latest gear from American Apparel while reading stories written by 'Adam Reuters' just turns me off. Not everything in life – whether real or virutal – has to be a frickin' "brand experience" or another marketing opportunity. /gag
I think in-game commercial behaviour like this press conference is inappropriate for Warcraft and I would be disappointed if Blizzard encouraged or even just ignored it.

I agree that the level restrictions on which instances you can search for are too...well...restrictive. I'm new to WoW and spent most of my time in my 20s questing, running Deadmines trying in vain to get the Emberstone Staff, trying out the battlegrounds, etc. So basically I didn't step foot in the Stockades and now that I want to give it a go, I'm "too high" a level and the Stockades doesn't show up in my LFG selections. According to the WoW website, the Stockades is for Levels 22–30 and I'm a Level 31. Pfffft.
Looks like I'll be hanging around in front of the Stockades this weekend, asking people if they "Wanna party?". It just makes me feel so cheap!

Nov 16th 2006 7:25PM When I started playing WoW, I had no idea about talent trees, specs and builds. I didn't even know about talent points until I had a few of them stored up. Playing a Druid, I put a point here, a point there and some more points over there. That you could spec your Druid to play different styles? I had no idea. A friend clued me in and I dove into the Druid board on the WoW Forum to learn all I could. I respec'd all my points into Feral and since then every point spent has been a careful decision made based on what I think I want to achieve at this point in my game-life.
I like the fact that the system has forced me to think about what I want and learn more about the game, so I'm not a big fan of making respecs cheaper. But I would love to be able to fix something if I made a mistake or evaluate a slightly different build without risking the money. Having a PTR where I could experiment or allowing changes within a set amount of time would both work for me. And as someone who has misclicked previously, a confirmation step before committing to the talent spec would be great.
