Blizzard moves from #47 to #1 in studio rankings {WoW}

May 11th 2009 5:03PM @Artificial: This has nothing to do with consoles. He's probably confused because Nintendo is a 'niche' game studio, because they only produce games for their consoles. Accusing someone without any basis just makes you sound like an elitist; he has a perfectly reasonable instinct.

It would be easy to believe that more game studios that are not hardware specific would place better. Nintendo just puts out very polished products and a lot of them, so I could see it either way.

Give Bloodlust to Rogues {WoW}

May 6th 2009 9:04AM Thank you, "The Claw"...

Why is everyone saying "Rogues don't INSPIRE/aren't HEROIC/don't have a soul..." ? The post is for a Heroism type buff. I even read one comment that suggested a poison buff. I personally think it would be awesome for a rogue to throw down a poison vial and everyone in 30 yards gets a big Haste buff for a few seconds. The following de-buff would make more sense than what's in game now.

I'm not saying it's needed or not. I'm just saying all of screaming because it doesn't make sense lore wise is just stupid.

Breakfast Topic: Size does matter {WoW}

Apr 24th 2009 8:58AM We did this guy for the first time last night... It was the first time I had been impressed. Even more, the fight reminds me of old 8-bit Nintendo games which is just superb.

Totem Talk: Shaman, go you to Northrend {WoW}

Mar 5th 2009 5:24PM I have to agree with Pack... It seams the shaman articles as of late are all gear guides. There's not inspiration for the article. You can literally go to and find all this information in a searchable, sortable format.

I don't care about what shaman pieces are, but I do care about equivalency ratings for gear. If I had to tell anyone what I learned from this article I would say, "You go here/here and do quests; you go here and then here. You should be 80 by now, so finish the rest for gold and rep. There are quest rewards along the way you can use."

I just hate saying this, because I don't want anyone to think Matt is a bad writer. He still puts out some pretty good analysis of the Warrior class and the destitute Arms spec. I think he just hasn't gotten enough time lately to feel out the new Shaman.

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Scarce Change on the PTR {WoW}

Feb 27th 2009 3:34PM This is pretty much how I feel, as well. The change just feels like laziness on Blizzard's part.

The reason Warrior's scale so crazy is because Bloodthirst, Whirlwind (with 2Hers), and autoattacks (with 2Hers) increase dramatically with Attack Power. For Matt with his 38% crit chance, he would have to have over 10,000 Attack Power before Crit Rating would be equivalent to Strength.

Fix Warrior Attack Power scaling... This stupid -10% bullshit some jackass came up with while playing lawn darts and sipping Smirnoff Ice is pissing me off.

I don't even want to get into the way Blizzard is forcing us to use Heroic Strike as a rage dump, or how playing a Fury warrior is just a glorified cooldown manager. For heavy movement fights I just have a macro:
/castrandom BT, WW, Blrage, BzRage
If you are over 45 rage make sure HStrike is lit up, or if SLAM! proc's hit Slam. This can pull in over 2500 DPS for me on a Boss test dummy, and I'm still in a few blues.

The most fun DPS class I've played so far is a Mutilate Rogue pre-3.0, and then they decided to screw that up. Oh well, sorry for the rant xenocider; all I meant to do was agree with you.

WoW botter tells all part 2 {WoW}

Feb 18th 2009 8:38AM "even if no-one is farming the resource you're gaining an unfair advantage over others because you can "play" more then other players"

So does this mean that every high-schooler is cheating? They have much more time on their hands than I. Also, I don't see how you qualify this as an "advantage"... They will be a higher level, but that should not have anything to do with the amount of fun YOU are having.

I don't advocate 'bot'ing, but I find your argument extremely flawed. You just come off sounding jealous that you can't do it.

Ghostcrawler: "We still are not convinced that Warrior tanks are operating at some huge deficit" {WoW}

Feb 17th 2009 2:49PM I think you missed the point. Matt is wanting warriors to be "the (please insert a specialty here) tanks" as every other tanking class is.

And there's no reason to feel sorry for anyone else when you make yourself look stupid.

Analysis of Warriors changes in 3.1 {WoW}

Feb 5th 2009 2:24PM Where does it say that stances are off the GCD?
