Feb 9th 2009 8:51PM I'm done with this thread, it's going nowhere logically and all Karilyn wants to do is use ad hominem attacks to try to make her point, but I will just answer you Taladan. The people I refer to as rude, insensitive SOBs are the ones who think it's fun to screw over people who were clearly there first (since according to the tale, he was already engaged with the dragon). And yes, they do tend to be on PvP servers more often, since there are more opportunities to do that behavior on servers where you can be unflagged. Doesn't mean PvE servers don't have their share of the type, however.
And for the last time, "hypocrite" is a completely inappropriate word. It implies that I would do that behavior myself, which I can assure you I would not, and for which there is no evidence in anything I posted, just as there is no evidence anywhere that I am a racist. Interestingly enough, my company also has a zero tolerance policy for racism in any form, and I will fire anyone who exhibits it on the spot. Of course, I also require evidence for it, not assumptions based on faulty reading of a post that has nothing whatsoever to do with race, creed, or national origin. My comments have to do with immature behavior, which can be exhibited by anyone.
Feb 9th 2009 5:34PM Karilyn, all I can say is, thanks for applying. We don't have a position for you right now.
Feb 9th 2009 5:08PM Hypocrisy is defined as "the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one's own behavior does not conform; pretense." So as I said before, I am no hypocrite. Neither is there anything in my comments to lead to an assumption that I am a racist, but then perhaps you do not understand the definition of that word either. What is clear to me, Karilyn, is that you are angry, prone to personal attacks, somewhat ignorant in the literal sense of the term, and unwilling to examine any view other than your own. If these traits of yours come out in any job interview, you will be immediately rejected. Of course, I suspect your idea of a career is asking, "Would you like fries with that?"—in between ganking lowbies in Stranglethorn Vale of course.
Feb 9th 2009 4:43PM First of all I suggest you look up the definition of hypocrisy. It would be hypocritical of me to play PvP and then not hire PvP players. Since I don't, I'm not a hypocrite. And your comments basically confirm our company policy as the proper move for employee cooperation and teamwork. So thanks for that.
Feb 9th 2009 4:22PM Grow up and smell the coffee—many companies now require that you provide them with every name you use online so they can vet you that way as well. And many companies won't hire gamers, period. I know many people who love to PvP but they still wouldn't use that as an excuse to swoop in and destroy someone else's long wait and effort to obtain something in game. That isn't "engaging in epic warfare with members of the opposite faction." It's simple greed and inconsiderate behavior.
Feb 9th 2009 4:04PM All I can say is I'm glad the rude, insensitive SOBs end up on PvP servers where I don't have to encounter them. My company has a strict no-hire policy for all PvP gamers. Those who can't be considerate of others in WoW are unlikely to be considerate of others in life.
Feb 8th 2009 2:43PM If I see someone killing a mob next to a node, I won't swoop in and grab the mine while he's doing it. If someone is AFK next to a mob, all I can assume is he doesn't want the node, and that's that. Same rationale would go for mobs to be tamed. Gratz on the pet.
Jan 17th 2009 5:04AM The WG nerf is really not a big deal on Loatheb. The healing windows come more than 6 seconds apart, so you still get one on every window. Currently you may be able to get two in on a window with the GCD, but if your raid can't survive without the second one you're doing something very wrong—the raid damage just isn't that high.
The WG and CoH changes are going to cut down on massive overhealing by shaman and pallies trying to fit some heals in between the CoH/WG spam, and that's not a bad thing at all. Druid healers still get to have the most fun with their wide array of heals including the best set of HoTs in the game. Please, no QQ
Jan 2nd 2009 4:09AM Um...no offense, but really, this is your idea of explaining lore? All you've done is compile a brief synopsis of the quest series in Storm Peaks. If you really don't know what the back story is for these figures as far as Blizzard is concerned, you might at least have simply delved into the historical, mythological basis for not only these titans but also the vrykul themselves and most of the titan and vrykul sites in Storm Peaks and Icecrown. In other words, Norse mythology. Hodir = Odin, Thorim = Thor, Loken = Loki, Freya and Mimir are actually spelled correctly, and so on and so forth. If you explain the mythological background of the figures on which the Warcraft characters are based, the entire Northrend expansion becomes much more interesting.
What? Why aren't I giving the background? Because I'm not the one who is allegedly writing the column called Know Your Lore. Now get to work and we'll see if you can get a passing grade this time.
Dec 16th 2008 2:49AM A mistake is a mistake, and I have to give the benefit of the doubt that it was an honest mistake -- I have made BoP items on my crafters also without realizing (did it once on an engineer for Argent Dawn crafters writ items then realized I couldn't mail them to an alt). It happens. In this specific case, I would have sold the mace immediately and given the gold from it to the poor schmuck. I also would have declined the tip. That's not the "right" answer -- it's just what I would do in the situation to help the guy not feel like he needed to kick himself for the rest of the day.
