Noblegarden: Sexy or Sexist? {WoW}

May 1st 2009 1:37PM Thank you Cyrus. You're unwarranted personal attacks are a boon to your philosophical compatriots, I'm sure. Anyway, It's great to see someone respond to a comment against the alienation of different peoples, genders, and races by attempting to erect a barrier between white men and themselves. Way to further alienation and inequality.

Noblegarden: Sexy or Sexist? {WoW}

May 1st 2009 1:14PM Are you completely insane?

I haven't read any comments, forgive me my transgressions if I happen to be redundant.

When I read the achievement description I chuckled, then forgot about it. I then proceeded to do the achievement. And then forget about it.

Anyone who dwells in the sociological implication of two lines of text and five minutes searching around Dalaran is an idiot, pure and simple. The only people who are going to be offended by this are woman who are searching for something to be offended by. If you want to be offended by something, you will be.

True equality is the day when anyone can make any joke towards anybody and nobody will care or take it seriously. All this griping about "feminism" does is further alienate people from each other.

Ghostcrawler: If you're 80, you're hardcore {WoW}

Dec 6th 2008 5:10AM I see where you're coming from, I understand the desire to see the story. But I'm thinking about this like I would real life. Imagine someone saying that they want to get rich without work. They want a mansion and a ten car garage, they just don't want to put the work in, the time in. They're just too busy, they have other things to do. But they should get it anyway. I mean, they're alive aren't they? Don't they deserve the same things that people who work for them do?

It's an extremely poor way of thinking. Yes, you're paying for wow. You're paying for the right to play wow. You're not paying to get everything handed to you without the necessary work and time. If you put in effort and time, you should get requisite rewards. You can't get something for nothing. You shouldn't be able to see the end of the game if you're not willing to devote the time. This is an MMO, not a single player game. It's a different model, a different concept. You can't expect to see the end of it the same way.

Dec 5th 2008 11:39PM All I want to say is this: You can't have your cake and eat it too.

If you want to raid hardcore, cool. You get the benefits of it. The gear, the status, etc. If you don't want to put in the time necessary to do that, then you don't get the benefits of it. You get the benefits of whatever else you were doing with your time. That's fine. Everyone has priorities, you chose to not play wow as much. Neither side, hardcore or casual, is bad. They're just different.

What's bad is that some casuals want to be able to get gear and progress without putting in the work necessary. That's wrong. Gear and progression is a reward for time put in and for skill. It's not something you should get just for stumbling online. Gear and progress is an effect, time and skill put is the cause. Take out the cause and the effect is nothing.

That Blizzard is giving into this is a little disheartening, but there's nothing we can do about it. People want something for nothing and Blizzard is going to make money off that. Maybe someday we'll get developers who will make the hardcore game for hardcore people, or maybe someday people will realize that you can't get something from nothing. Until then we'll just have to deal.

Aug 13th 2008 5:10PM "Yes, WoWInsider says they gonna do live blogging, still, there is going to be a period of time between when they ask and when that blog is coming up."

Oh my God, a period of time! How will you survive!

Also, it's entirely possible that they used American business times because they're, get this, an American company!

Also, "there will be live blogging of the panels" "Grr I don't want to wait months to hear what is said in the panels!" lolwut

Stop projecting your irrational hate onto inappropriate things kthx
