What DOESN'T cause "bad moods among(st) the hardcore"?
Old McDonald was right about them: As far as I can tell, they're a bunch of whiny B-I-E-I-otches anyway.
Let them complain. By definition, being hardcore means they HAVE to play, e-peen being what it is, so they're guaranteed revenue. "OMG we need 1st!!!!111!!!!!"
Apr 24th 2009 11:57AM "25-mans should not inherently award better loot just for requiring more bodies to complete; the raid should not be rewarded with better loot just because the raid leader has the patience and ability to herd 25 cats. 25-man loot should only be better if the mechanics of encounters require a demonstrable higher level of player skill."
As an aside: I'd say that Blizz had every intention of breaking up raiding guilds. Otherwise, why would you choose to make a 25 man raid? 40 man content can be easily scaled down to two 20 man groups and it's as easy as pie to scale up and down between 10 and 20 man content. They added those 5 raid slots on purpose.
It's pretty simple really. They create all this "turbulence" on purpose to slow us down. It's one of the best ways to extend the life of the content without being obvious about it

Yes. We've only ever gotten good things from corporations. Corporations, and their never-ending, resource-consuming, quest for money have NEVER corrupted anything for the sake of "the market" or to "make money".
Fun Fact: Corporations are responsible for inflating all the pretty balloons in the world! They are the keepers of the magical places where, candy, rainbows, ponies, and fairies come. They even make sure, every night, that all good puppies and kitty-cats get sweet little kisses on their sweet little button noses!
Apr 22nd 2009 12:09AM Well played my blobby friend...well played indeed.
Apr 20th 2009 3:37PM "Blizzard has very poor out-of-game support."
Pretty much. Do they even have a phone number that you can call to actually talk to an actual person about you problems? I don't think so.
They decided a longtime ago that it was OK for them to lose customers into the tech-support black hole that they created by not allowing you to actually talk to someone about your account problems. Hell, I can even talk to Microsoft about my Live account on the phone if needed. They've got so many players that, quite frankly, they just don't care about YOU as an individual.
Fail service is fail. Whether or not they have millions of customers, not having a support hotline is poor customer service.
F rating. Working as Blizz Intended.

Are you the same Ferraro from that other blog? Yeah, it must be nice for YOU, getting previews and early information. Screw everybody else, right?
Does privilege make you unpleasant that way, or are you just naturally like that?

Well good for him. /cookie
And here's one for you because you did such a good job standing up for your little buddy. /cookie
Now you kids run along and play now...
It wasn't a big deal when he pulled it, and it's not a big deal now that he's put it back online. IT IS, however funny as hell. All that piss and vinegar about Blizz being "heavy handed" for nothing.
LOL @ half-assed activists. Three cheers for people who kinda stand up for what they believe in... sorta... mostly... sometimes... a little?
Apr 14th 2009 10:42AM "but at first glance siphoning off another site's resources and adding advertising on top of it strikes me as really lame."
So, I guess it would be safe to say that you feel the same way about Google. Correct?
Apr 10th 2009 6:10PM "facerolling your way to all those victories DOESN'T in fact make you a great player!"
Why are you people so butt-hurt over face-rollers? Know anybody with an easier job than yours that makes tons more money? Same thing. It happens.
Grow up and stop being "so srs!"
Apr 9th 2009 3:05PM "I'm just saying that there's no reason to take a pure DPS or a pure heal class when you can take a class that can switch between DPS or heals as needed for a fight."
I don't know about you, but as a rule, I avoid PuGging healers and Tanks. If I choose someone for DPS, I won't be asking them to switch roles. I hand pick the clutch positions and then sprinkle DPS over the rest of my groups. I find it makes life much more enjoyable.
Maybe you won't but I'll still be picking up pure classes.
