Aug 4th 2009 9:29AM Great response! Only thing that I can add is this: What unique abilities do we still bring? Hit debuff to boss? Oh, wait, nevermind. Replenishment? Oh, wait, nevermind.
Whe have no unique utility, and do sub par DPS. I think we all need to start getting high with GC so we can see wth he is talking about.

Yes, and as a U.S. citizen I find it horrible that we are involved in so many atrocities. But, please keep in mind, that my country is the police of the U.N. We get sent in and do what no other nations are willing to do but fully "support". We help to free people who then turn and spit on us when they decide we have done the job. Also, some peoples hatred against U.S. citizens is completely misplaced. Do you think that each of us approve of our secret military strikes??? Please inform yourself and get rid of your "Holier than thou" attitude.
On that note, the author was merely pointing out that our beloved video game may need to be a form of communication for the oppressed citizens in Iran. He did not ask how much you hate the U.S. or whether you think other countries should intervene.

Here is a good reason as to why the integer was signed.
Simple computes, being the easiest way to compute remaining Gold on a player, would be how I would code a program.(Keep in mind, I am not a game programmer just a simple mainframer)
So, logically my code would think in terms of this- I have 90 Gold and attempt to buy something off of the AH for 100 Gold. With my integers all signed the equation would look like this: 90 - 100 = -10 so my next line would be a check to make sure that the remaining Gold was not a negative(-) number. In this case that check would fail, and I would not allow the purchase.
If my integers were not signed it would turn into this: 90 - 100 = 10 and without doing some crazy check like the following the system would allow the purchase.
IF X < Y
This not only looks sloppy but I would consider it horrible programming if I came across this in my work.
And again, keep in mind, I am a simple mainframe programmer and do nothing nearly as complex as WoW.
Jun 5th 2009 12:01PM Agreed.
I also hate any bankers or ah guys other than the far left ones. I always use only the far left guys.
Other things I hate are:
1. Piss poor attitudes.
2. People who don't have fun while playing(it's a game guys)
3. Naxx on my priest(If I wanted to tank I would play a tank)

May 19th 2009 4:30PM OMG Blizz is the Devil!!!!!!!!!!
Seriously, they have every right stop others from making money off of their product. And I am gonna guess that 90% of the player base has never heard of this website before this, yet they will kick and scream that Blizz is the bad guy here.
May 19th 2009 12:04PM That is how I have been reading it, and I am excited if that is the case. It will basically free up a full bag on each of my characters.
May 14th 2009 4:06PM I am about to leave my guild for a couple reasons.
1. They schedule a raid, say for Friday. I happen to log in on Thursday and see them in that very raid. When I ask WTH, I get responses of "We aren't going to clear it, only halfway".
2. It is stated in DKP rules that DKKP will not be awarded in said pug raids. Only problem is that it is being awarded since the officers are in it.
3. Absolutley no push for progression in Ulduar. Most would rather gear up alts in Naxx, which is cool, but when it comes to my alts I get shafted cause they need my dps to carry the rest of the raid.
4. Those that are geared for Ulduar are either: On their alts, see #3, or don't bother logging in to help with raids.
This has made my play experience rather annoying at best, and is pushing me out of the game. I play a ranged DPS and am currently on Madoran-US is anyone is interested, while I do not have BiS I can pull my weight in a raid and have experience on Flame, Ignis, XT, and Razorscale. I have multiple 80's all of which go with me. If anyone is interested please leave your characters name here and I will contact you if your guild might be a fit for me.
