You just made me want to RP a shadow-priest.
Nov 9th 2009 7:28AM JUST DONT LOOK AT IT BRO. NOT HARD.
The point is that if WoW had this, they could make quest text short and sweet (go get this item here, it is to the north west under a fallen tree, etc)... and then make the backstory "optional" via a ToK.
Emphasis on "optional". You either view it as awesome, or you DON'T VIEW IT. THE SHEER AMOUNT OF KNOWLEDGE IS ALMOST AS INTIMIDATING AS A BOOK.
Not quite though.
Oct 15th 2009 11:53PM Yeah, that's the problem with a comment rating system for blog posts... they're opinion based. If someone THINKS you might have an opposite opinion to theirs, you'll be downrated to oblivion. You may even have a valid point, it doesn't matter though.
PROTIP: saying "...know I'll get downranked for this..." is an autowin to 3+ stars. Happens ALL THE TIME on digg. Makes you look like a martyr, and them hipsters love the underdogs!
Oct 15th 2009 11:29AM SOUNDS TERRIBLY INTERESTING. FAR MORE INTERESTING THAN AN ACTUAL STORY. CAN YOU READ IT TO ME IN MONOTONE, TOO?
Sep 16th 2009 1:18AM You wanna know what I am sick and tired of hearing about?
People complaining about these top guilds.
They are the top guilds in the world- OF COURSE CONTENT IS TOO EASY FOR THEM.
If we made content that actually challenged THEM, only 5 guilds in the entire WORLD would complete it.
Quit being butthurt that the content isn't easy for you too and that you aren't as good as them.
Aug 26th 2009 2:49AM Honestly It Looks As Silly As People Who Capitalize Every First Letter Of Every Word In Every Sentence.
Since you're trying to convey an idea, you would be far better off following some basic standards. You'll hit a far larger audience that way, thus increasing the chance that your idea is accepted and understood rather than tossed to the side.
Think about it this way- As we read your post we are basically "listening" to it in our head. Lots of people associate "..." with a nervous sigh or prolonged "note", if you will, at the end of a statement. Akin to listening to someone sickly, terribly bored, or disgusted talk about something.
That may not be what you're trying to convey, but a lot of people will take it that way and thus the overall idea you're trying to get across is changed.
That's just my two copper on etiquette of communicating via text.
Aug 13th 2009 1:41PM The reason is, even though we have epic battles with these bosses, you're supposed to imagine it's even more epic. No joke.
Take pvp for example. When fighting a rogue as a melee class, you'll see a flurry of parries and dodges on your combat log... but you won't really see him doing anything on his character. That's because the game just isn't designed enough and the engine isn't powerful enough to show the epic battles going on JUST WHILE YOU AUTOATTACK.
So when you are fighting a rogue as a rogue, it is like this epic ninja fight (parry, miss, CRIT TO THE FACE, parry, dodge), you just only see it in the combat log.
Bosses are the same way. They're SO POWERFUL they can actually dodge the attacks from 25 friggen people.

I WON THAT ARGUMENT. USE MORE BIG WORDS AND PRETEND TO BE MORE EDUCATED PLEASE.
