Aug 9th 2011 9:43AM WoW already has a cartoony feeling to it and it is one of the many reasons I enjoy playing it. It doesn't take itself seriously all the time and it's not some generic pretty-looking Korean carbon-copy MMO.
Aug 8th 2010 9:06PM Breaking the Battlegroups up even more would only cause more grief. Longer queue times, different sets of gear to be considered twink at that bracket, etc. The change into world-wide BGs won't completely fix everything, just as exp gains didn't stop twinks.
Please name one good reason to break up battlegroups in sets of 5 other than the fact you're more likely to be grouped with people your own level.
Aug 8th 2010 9:04PM It usually comes down in argument that non-twinks will get over it fast as they'll level while twinks wouldn't.
And at 80 there are still twinks, players who are in good arena teams or pvp frequently will better survive fresh level 80s, but that point is always ignored by those who complain about twinks in lower brackets.
Aug 8th 2010 6:14PM Wonderful article. As an alt-a-holic and also a twink-a-holic, lowbie battlegrounds have always been my favorite stomping grounds. There aren't ever any AFKers in lowbie brackets, mostly everyone is working together to accomplish the BG, and by now, everyone should have an 80 to spoil their alts with heirlooms or some blue gear.
The latter isn't always the case as I still see people complain on the forums that even heirloom gear shouldn't be allowed in BGs and twinks ruin the fun of those leveling. Perhaps when a player enters level 10 they receive ingame mail from Thrall/Wrynn stating that battlegrounds are now open to them and also a reminder that going in at level 10 isn't very wise.
Jul 29th 2010 10:52AM Grinding out Achievements. Got my Hog last night, 100th mount this morning. Got Midnight to drop. I need to clear some PvP and Raid achievements now.
Sep 7th 2009 1:38PM This isn't a discussion about good/better weapons for a tank, regardless of their class. It's a discussion about wither a player did the right thing.
I feel he had done the right thing. Would the boss been possible without his help in tanking, probably not if he had to switch in the first place. Getting the mace is like a "Thank you" for being DS'd so that he was valuable in a raid. Also, the weapon stayed in the guild, it isn't as if the pug had won it, so I see no harm.
Aug 27th 2009 9:54PM Using Comcast myself. My normal account, through Battle.net, won't connect. Girlfriend's account, is able connect fine, same internet access, same house, same room...
Seems to be a Battle.net issue more than anything else.
Jul 21st 2009 12:12AM No LGVu :( darnit.
Nov 11th 2008 11:46PM I just hope all this means that tomorrow and the following week go a lot smoother. I'm really not looking forward to today happening for the next 7 days.
That's all I ask for... and maybe a free character transfer for Magtheridon to a nice new PvE or PvP server.
Aug 22nd 2008 11:44AM Just ran to Stratholme, won't let anyone enter the instance. Huge bummer as I really wanted to check it out. The outside leading to the portal looks pretty cool, however.
