Feb 26th 2009 5:37PM There's a shock... Blizz builds a statue, and it's horde. I'm willing to wager that the WoW movie will ultimately end up with an Alliance character being the bad guy, who ganked some poor helpless stunproof orc DK in an alley years ago.
Jan 7th 2009 11:35PM This change is the best thing to happen to mining ever. I can't count the number of times I've gotten my first tap or two and then some piece of %^&* lands while I'm mining and spam clicks the node till he gets it then sits there with the loot window open refusing to actually take it in an attempt to outlast you and hope you give up.
This is how high population servers go. More people = more asshats.
Yes, this happens all the time, and yes it's almost always on Alliance side. I play both factions on the same PvP server (2 accounts) specifically to hunt these people down and camp them till they log off and cry to mommy.)
Only ninjas lose here, plain and simple. As for the lowbies getting beaten to nodes by 80s, there's really nothing stopping that from happening now. You're on foot, they're on an epic mount. Even if they are polite and let you have the node in question, the zone will be empty in a few minutes anyway. You can't really expect them to NOT mine a zone simply because you're low level and can only mine there and not in higher areas.
Dec 21st 2008 12:21PM I'm the GM of on Gorefiend and we had a Christmas party with a twist this year. First, we all went to Ironforge's Explorer's League area (big tree) for the presents, but with a fun twist! First person unwraps their gift, then second person has the option of ninjaing that gift off them or taking their chances with "the pile". This continues through the list with each person having the chance to steal the gift before them or have theirs taken by the next person! (Those who get their gift ninja'd obviously get a new one from the pile.)
We had been saving a ton of Runecloth etc to have a ton of Santa outfits ready for everybody so we all looked the part also.
We ended up with a lot of happy people, a ton of laughs on vent, and I had even gone over to my Horde account and farmed up a Black Tabby as the big ticket item. (They're ridiculously rare on ally side on our server.)
Afterwards, we decided to go on a casual stroll into the middle of Thunder Bluff and hit horde with snowballs. :D
Nov 29th 2008 5:09PM I get the Blizz wants things to be easy so that the casual guilds can see content that would have otherwise been only playable to the top 10% or less of the player population.
But come on... running instances without even bringing a healer? A sole shadowpriest throwing the occasional bubble and the pally tank using self-healing seals/judgements as the sole healing in an instance? That's a bit TOO easy. We cleared level 80 content below level with no "real" healer... and we're not even hardcore.
Nov 25th 2008 9:21AM Debuff wouldn't make a bit of difference.
A. Ninjas are already known to be ninjas. They thourish in a realm because people don't care unless the ninja ninja'd from them. Same way people don't care about an earthquake on the other side of the planet. Or even a disaster in another state. If it didn't affect them directly, they're too self-absorbed to care. This is even worse on high-pop servers.
B. Ninjas are almost always either kids who don't have any courtesy or adults who don't care. Either way, nothing can be done in-game to prevent someone from being an asshole out of game. Computers just don't work that way.
C. Horde/Alliance ganking for a node. This is perfectly acceptable (and intentional) world PvP. This is not ninjaing. It's called World of WARCRAFT. You're SUPPOSED TO kill each other if you both go for the same cobalt node at once. Now stop all the /1 chatter about opposite-faction ninjas. There's no such thing. They're just doing their job. It's not their fault that you forgot to buff up before you chased after the node of blue stuff.
D. I don't node-steal. If I'm there first (even due to my epic bird) then it's mine. Otherwise, it's theirs. If it's an opposing faction, I either pass or gank depending on if I'm gonna win or not. But for my guys, if they get there first, it's theirs. How much would it piss me off if I got there first but someone thought "but I'm too awesome to let someone else have the satisfaction of getting there first, so I claim it as mine anyway" and tried to take my stuff? Well, I have an answer actually... I bought a second account and I have a horde rogue JUST for that reason. So ya, feel free to try and take my mining. I can /who track you on my ally and camp you all day on my horde. Works the other way too. In game issue solved via in-game PvP solution.
