Patch 4.3: Guild masters can now be impeached {WoW}

Sep 27th 2011 7:21PM I would bet that this is following the current rules. The way it works now is that if your GL has been inactive for 30 days, someone in the guild can submit a petition to replace the GL. It used to be that Blizz would then e-mail the GL and double check with them first, though there are rumors that they no longer do this, and instead e-mail after the fact letting the GL know. I don't know which it is.

With this new kind of tool, it probably just simply removes some of the GM-time. It isn't as big a deal as it seems, just mechanizing more of the process- probably to save the GMs some of that precious time.

I suppose it also brings the community's attention to the fact that inactive GMs can be replaced.... which apparently it needed given the reactions I've seen.

WoW Archivist: The Corrupted Blood plague {WoW}

Jul 26th 2011 6:45PM I remember this well, and I remember the zombie one too. The first one actually was fascinating to 'participate' in. I won't talk about the second...

A few notable (IMHO) points:

Some were speculating it was done on purpose, we really had no way of knowing as Blizz didn't react very fast, in their typical 'fix first and fill in later' mode- and it happened so soon after ZG was released (as there were guilds that already had MC on farm at that point and could just plow through). How did we know this wasn't a ZG-opening event? A small few were even speculating we were being actively used by some curious 'someone' as a virtual laboratory.

The degree of misinformation was staggering. Where was it hitting? IF was overrun, but if you could get to Darny you'd surely be safe? There was a rumor going around if you were flagged for pvp (on my pve server) you were immune. It could be cleansed by pallies, or it couldn't?

Regardless of whatever people are saying here, there was no gaurentee you would die. It was possible (if you could heal) to keep yourself up through it. The brave went and healed others (the lowbies died too quickly to do anything for), absolute hordes of the curious went just to see and add to the massive piles of skeletons in the common places.

After it was fixed it popped up sporadically as a few remaining hunter pets with it were summoned, but it was usually squashed pretty fast. Still, after it had been 'healed', we were not convinced it was gone for good.

The Queue: Shameless theft {WoW}

Jun 12th 2011 2:15PM Will you need an ilevel of 346 (or 329) to queue for Ahune? The drops are ilevel 353, like ZG/ZA and you need 346 for those, so I am curious how far geared I have to get my lockling in order to try for the awesome-looking staff for her.
