Breakfast Topic: Pranks {WoW}

Jan 29th 2009 8:58AM /yell The Living are here!

Works well in Strat, but we've been getting reactions in Naxx as well.

Crowd Control to return in future instances {WoW}

Jan 26th 2009 5:43PM What about multiple paths through the trash in an instance? If you have enough CC, you can take a shortcut through these really tough mobs that aren't easily zerged.

If your group lacks the CC, you go the long way through the instance avoiding the hard groups.

CC becomes valuable but not necessary.

Blizzard puts advertising on the WoW front page {WoW}

Jan 23rd 2009 2:26PM I can see where it looks like greed from the outside. But at some point, you have to know that Blizz is a company just like any other - they exist to provide profit to their investors, and jobs to their employees. If sufficient income is not being generated, they have to reduce costs (development and support) in order to remain viable.

So how do they increase revenue? I'm sure they have considered several actions. Raising subscription costs would be one way, but would alienate many of their customers. These ads seem to be a reasonable alternative - provided they can police them properly.


If the ads so seriously offend you, get Firefox, Adblock and RIP.

GamerDNA and Massively explore Death Knight demographics {WoW}

Jan 14th 2009 5:36PM It is interesting to me that Orcs and Humans aren't the most popular due to their racial weapon bonuses.

Rather than Min/Maxing their DKs, it looks like people are choosing to play what they enjoy.

I would be interested in seeing the distribution of a well organized survey of lvl 80 DKs. Maybe a subdivision of PVE DKs vs PVP DKs.

Relics of Ulduar to stay soulbound? {WoW}

Jan 9th 2009 4:56PM As it stands right now, God and everyone else on my server tries to run the Hodir dailies at about the same time every day.

Making Relics of Ulduar tradeable would help allievate that crunch. It would let us bypass those dailies on our alts. I'm OK with never having to thrown a tooth at a worm with my alts.

Queue queue moar noob {WoW}

Jan 2nd 2009 12:43PM The biggest problem that I see with the high queue depths is that people no longer log out. They stay in and go AFK.

So not only is the queue longer, but it's moving slower as well.

Queue queue moar noob {WoW}

Jan 2nd 2009 10:29AM Around 7PM Server, Silvermoon has a 45+ minute queue. That's assuming the server doesn't dump everyone while you're waiting.

Account security mythbusting, part 4 {WoW}

Dec 31st 2008 3:20PM The authenticators are nice. Quite a few people in my guild use them and are quite happy with them.

They aren't quite the quality of an RSA Security token, but for the price, they are fine.

For people who own more than one copy of WOW (think of the multiboxers, couples/families), you can assign a single authenticator to multiple accounts.

Realms are up {WoW}

Dec 16th 2008 4:18PM My bet is that patch lands on Tuesday 12/30. That is, assuming that PTR testing doesn't reveal any major flaws.

Counterpoint: Yes, we should track raiding progression {WoW}

Dec 4th 2008 5:24PM It didn't help that Kara was a 10 man coming on the heels of vanilla WOWs 40 man raids. In that respect, it was a guild killer.
