The Art of War(craft): The pointlessness of PvP in early Wrath {WoW}

Dec 8th 2008 2:08PM Go quit for AoC or WAR, already, and leave those of us who enjoy a primarily-PvE endgame alone.

BigRedKitty: An open apology to everybody {WoW}

Nov 8th 2008 11:31PM "So to those of you who were "inconvenienced" I say, be ashamed for feeling that way. Go now and donate even a small amount to Make a Wish and atone for that."

No.

God, that felt good to say.

"I don't know how much in donations this event may have resulted in, but if it helps even 1 more wish to be given to a seriously ill child and their family, then it was worth whatever brief interruption you had to face in this game."

Not only did I not donate, I've contacted Make a Wish to explain that they will never see a penny from me, because of BRK's appalling behavior.

Nov 8th 2008 11:06PM "later you can log on and play and enjoy your life. go about your business. you're still here to do it after all."

Some people schedule their playtime around their life, not the other way around. How wonderfully selfish of you to decide that your LOL WORLD EVENT 4 EZRA YARRRRGH is more important.

Preparing for Wrath Day 6: Have a nice night with some pots, stones, and oils {WoW}

Nov 7th 2008 10:06PM Oils and stones won't work on anything you own now, post-your-attaining-71, if live works the same way as the beta.

Azeroth's new plague, Potion Sickness {WoW}

Jul 29th 2008 9:46AM You're a pretty bad mage, if you've never used a mana potion in a raid just because you're cheap.

Nonlinear dungeons return in Wrath {WoW}

Jun 29th 2008 1:20PM "Solid hallways guiding you straight forward"

Clearly you've never had a bad pug in BRD, where one member only wanted to go to the Ring of Law, one had three quests to knock out in the front half, one had two at the back, one wanted only to do MC attunement, etc. Anything that makes bosses or significant quest/profession/etc. content optional within a dungeon will make it harder for any given individual to accomplish their own goals, because a group will take the path of least resistance, and skip whatever they're not familiar with, or are sick of.

At the raid level, where there has to be more organization and coherent preparation, that's one thing. For five-mans, I shudder that they're going back to the broken old model.

Tips for the youths applying to guilds this summer {WoW}

May 28th 2008 12:41AM If comments like this are meant to be a demonstration of your guild's purported maturity, I'd hate to think what kind of behaviour you'd consider just too immature.

Tips for the youths applying to guilds this summer {WoW}

May 27th 2008 9:37PM Agreed. Personality goes a long way. Even if you played your class flawlessly and were in full T6+, being a whiny brat is a good way to ensure no one wants to put up with you for several hours a night, multiple nights a week.

Tips for the youths applying to guilds this summer {WoW}

May 27th 2008 8:17PM "First and foremost, be honest about your gear and experience."

This seems to be something that under-18s in particular have trouble with; I'm not sure why, and can only imagine it's part of a more general immaturity. To take some recent examples from our raiding applications, if you're going to tell us that you have BT/Hyjal experience, it shouldn't turn out that you mean you watched your brother do it on his character, and spammed Sinister Strike on trash while he was taking a bio. If you're going to say that you tanked Illidan on your alt on another server, it shouldn't turn out that that character is in mid-60s blues and has zero Ashtongue rep. Some things are very easy to check, with the Armory, and lying (even if only to impress, or fit in) just demonstrates bad judgment, on top of everything else.

"An armed society is a polite society." {WoW}

May 21st 2008 11:20AM The people whining for "hardcore" penalties in PVP naturally assume that they'd never be affected by them, is the problem. Whether or not that's true is immaterial.

All they really want is a way to ruin someone else's fun to a greater extent than they can now, which strikes me as more than a little sociopathic.
