Feb 17th 2009 9:43PM I pay someone $20 to come into my house once a week and clean. In the great game of life, is that 'cheating'? Should my neighbours, who do their own cleaning, be upset? Should they rail against my refusal to do my own dusting? It's not affecting them, in any shape or form. What I do with my $20, and how I manage my leisure time, is up to me. If what this guy says is true (that his botting isn't affecting my enjoyment of the game) then what the hell do I care? That he's paying a third party to gather vendor trash makes a kind of sense. Now, excuse me, I've got to go load my dishwasher.
Oct 26th 2008 9:15AM My guild made the decision to carry on with our raid schedule after the patch and it's proved to be a lot of fun. Yeah, the nerfs are the nerfs but as our guild master put it, 'why not go see the content?'. We're proudly a 'casual' guild, but in the best sense - organized, committed, scheduled, but still relaxed enough to have fun. The upshot has been that we just never got through the endgame stuff before the patch/expansion. But why not take a crack at? Those are cool environments and even if the edge is off, it's cool to wander around in them. The hardcore crowd will always have bragging rights - that doesn't mean the rest of us can't enjoy the show.
Jun 9th 2008 11:45AM Talk about 'deja vu all over again'. I ran with a guild that sounds for all the world like K's for almost two years. When it finally disintegrated (for all the same reasons) a few of us moved onto a much larger guild, hoping to see more content (which we did) but couldn't help reminiscing about 'the good old days' every chance we got. Well - perhaps proving that you can go back again - within the last few weeks, many of the stalwarts of my old guild, who didn't make the transition and largely stopped playing, have not only re-activated their accounts, but have joined the new guild. It's like a reunion, only no-one looks any older! Catching up with old friends, running them through instances, and keeping up a raiding schedule sure feels like the best of both worlds and I certainly hope K can convince as many of his current guildies as are willing to make the switch, if that's what it comes to.
