Sep 16th 2009 12:45PM I thought of the same problem. It would suck to install vanilla WoW and then be stuck waiting hours while it patches Azeroth to Cataclysm (since everyone will see cataclysm Azeroth one the xpac comes out). The easy solution (in my opinion) is to just stop selling Vanilla WoW altogether. Cataclysm becomes the new "Vanilla" WoW that new people can just buy, start playing immediately and reach a level cap of 60. They'll still have to buy BC and WOTLK to move forward.
If current players qq (they will qq) about newbies getting to pay less to get access to the current game than they did (WoW+BC+WOTLK+Cat > Cat+BC+WOTLK) then Blizzard can just throw in a free month of play for existing players who bought the expansion.
Or heck, maybe they could just sell two versions of Cataclysm. A cheaper version for current players who already have all the other expansions and the original game and a more expensive version for new players getting into WoW.

Aug 21st 2009 2:20PM "I also got the chance to finally meet Ghostcrawler last night, and not only is he awesome, but he says there will be plenty of surprises today, even considering the leaks we've seen so far."
Well what else was he supposed to say?
"Oh yeah well those leaks were pretty much all we've got. You might as well see if you can get a refund and go home."

Aug 21st 2009 1:22PM When all you've got is a hammer every problem starts to look like a nail.
May 5th 2009 9:36AM Yeah but you're the dpsking, what about all us dpspeasants?
May 5th 2009 8:41AM What a nice false dichotomy. Either the game is easy enough for your 80 year old arthritic grandmother or hard enough that only one of the top guilds can complete the achievement with 3 tenths of a second to spare.
May 1st 2009 2:18PM Now that I know the consequences of using it I would immediately open a ticket and get rid of it. Had I remained ignorant of what happened to Karatechop I would have probably tested it out a couple of times before reporting it.
Apr 28th 2009 11:21AM I would like cross faction communication as well, but with a few limitations.
1) As a few have said, give us an auto ignore option for the opposing faction
2) No whispers
3) No mail
4) No chat
Basically I'd like it to be limited to "/s" commands.
Mar 30th 2009 6:16PM Sorry Naix, I wasn't totally clear. I didn't mention that it's not so much about what you do, but how much you do it. I agree completely what you mean about having your own separate interests. It's the same with my girlfriend and I. At a certain point though, other separate interests, if pursued too often can negatively affect any relationship. That's when compromise comes into play.
Try to look at it from her perspective. Imagine your wife was really into her book club, so much so that she spent upwards of 4 to 5 hours a day at the library reading books. Now you probably wouldn't have anything against her joining a book club, but if your left to manage the house and take care of a kid while she spends most of her free time pursuing her leisure activities I'm going to bet that you're going to start getting a little ticked off. I'm going to bet that eventually you're going to ask her to start spending less time at the library and more time at home. Perhaps saying "giving up" was a little too strong, but you certainly need to learn to balance your partner's needs along with your own, and your partner needs to do the same.
If your marriage is successful right now all it means is that you and your wife have found a stable situation where you can both spend time doing your own stuff without making the other member feel overburdened with household stuff or ignored. That's great for you guys, but I bet that stability would leave if all of a sudden you doubled your play time for an extended period of time.
