Sep 15th 2009 12:05AM I might be remembering incorrectly, but aren't there going to be Human Hunters in the next Xpac? Don't Humans have the racial Every Man For Himself ? Wouldn't that make Human BM Hunters have 3 PVP trinkets ? Fun times for them in PVP!
Jan 21st 2009 5:45PM I believe that this patch disaster is wholly due to lack of testing on the PTR - the number of testers is too low to get a full server test.
This will always be the case, except for beta and content patches because there is no incentive to go to the PTR. If you've only got 10 hours or so of playtime a week and you need to get achievements, rep, gold - why would you got the the PTR?
There is a simple solution - award achievements, rep and gold to the toon on live that you are testing with on the PTR.
Aug 27th 2008 9:17PM Personally, $3.00 is what it costs for a 600ml coke here, so I don't consider it expensive for a bit of fun. However, the service doesn't work - i've tried it! Also, the help link your supposed to click if you can't get it to work doesn't work - error 404.
Feeling a little ripped off right now.....
Jul 9th 2008 6:26PM We can all hope that this may signal a move to Oceanic servers in Aus/NZ but seriously I doubt it. I don't think that Blizz gives a continental about this part of the world.
I've done my research and all their statistics point to 8:00 pm Aus time as a low in player numbers - hence this is the maintenance / realm restart time. This is absolute rubbish. I've played on a number of Oceanic realms and due to work committments play alot at 5:00 am Aus time - the time the servers have to back up for "peak" player use. The game is empty of players at that time EVERY day, but it is ALWAYS packed with players at 8:00pm Aus time.
Sure, I admit the figures would be significanlty different for US servers, but there are a hell of a lot of Oceanic players and Blizz has never shown any love to them.
The only chance we have of getting what we want is if Warhammer is a success and provides Oceanic servers like it promised. A big hit to Blizz's bottom line may shake things up, nothing else has.
There has never been any love for Oceanic servers and i doubt there ever will.
May 12th 2008 7:40PM Can someone explain why maintenance is between 3:00 am and 11:00 am PST??? Seems to me that if it was delayed by 3 - 4 hours then those in the east (Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Singapore, etc) would get some game time Tuesdays and no one would miss out in the west coast of the USA - the realms would be back up by the time you got home from work/school.
Apr 28th 2008 6:46PM Why not call this topic "Oceanic Screwed Again". Always maintenance at Oceanic peak times.....
Apr 16th 2008 9:52PM World PvP sucks. It is always stupid kids 20 levels higher than you OR 3 or more stupid kids at your level ganking others on their own. Group ganking is impossible to stop, but negative honor for ganking someone say 15 levels below you would be helpful.
I've been camped so many times in SS as a lvl 30 by lvl 70's that I've purposely skipped the area on alts. Negative honor might slow the buggers down a bit and lets face it - there is no honor in what they are doing anyway.
