Encrypted Text: Tips for key binding your Rogue abilities {WoW}

Apr 16th 2009 1:19PM I agree that this is a VERY good idea to bind your keys, and tbh I would recommend to any starting player that they do it. I still have trouble with the key bindings because I played for so long with the "click" method. The longer you wait to switch the harder it gets, and the worse you get essentially, with most of the best players using key bindings because like the article says -- there simply isn't time to be clicking when you could just flick your finger :)

Pre-Wrath item checklist for Death Knights, Part II {WoW}

Nov 12th 2008 1:28PM No, blizzard has previously stated that death knights professions will start at 1 just like everyone elses.

Official forums temporarily set to read only {WoW}

Nov 12th 2008 12:46PM Ok for those of you who still side with Blizzard on the "they can have down time when ever they want" thing - think of it this way.

If i pay $7 to go see a movie and the projector breaks half way through the movie... I expect to be given my money back. I don't want to hear "well we are trying to fix it" because regardless of whether or not its being fixed, your company fucked up - be big boys and admit it and do whats right. But instead blizzard stands on their podium and says "well we are having problems, sorry, deal with it" - They seem to forget that we put food on their tables for their families.

When is it fair for classes to share? {WoW}

Oct 8th 2008 2:33PM heh we will see if they can keep doing things on their "gut feelings" now blizzard has some competition, and if blizzard screws something up or makes a change that a large group of people do not like, there is a risk that those people will go play the other MMO which has thus far proved itself to be just as polished and fun as WoW for many WoW players.

EA: You don't need $1 billion to compete with WoW {WoW}

Aug 29th 2008 3:08PM tbh I think that there is a lot more to beating WoW then just the content, and so many game developers fail to see it, and thus do not compete with WoW. Sure WoW has great content that can provide hundreds if not thousands of hours of fun. However, it also has some of the lowest requirements for any MMORPG out there. I think that is key in the 10 million subscribers. No one had to go out and buy upgrades for their PC to play WoW. People who just have home PCs for general use/internet surfing are able to play the game. It also has low time requirements. You can play an hour a day and feel like you acomplished something, where in most other MMORPGs, you have to play for hundreds of hours before you really start getting rewarded.

I think until the game developers open up their eyes to more then just the content, no one is going to compete with WoW.

Ask a Beta Tester: Everybody loves Warlocks edition {WoW}

Aug 17th 2008 12:15PM I like how most inscription mats are going to be new stuff (as far as i know, haven't seen that many recipies yet). It should make the mats a TON cheaper when the expansion hits because there will be less ppl with major stockpiles who can sell for what ever price they want and make a killing.

Advice columnist covers WoW addiction {WoW}

Aug 15th 2008 1:52AM tbh I really don't think it would be right to say that WoW had nothing to do with it. There is absolutly nothing wrong with a grown adult playing WoW, however if it gets to the point that she is cheating on her husband and neglecting her children, its quite obvious that she has a problem and needs help.

Look at it this way... if she was an alcoholic they would blame the alcohol companies, not say "Oh well, they would have had problems anyways."

WoW is great, but if people are going to neglect their real life responsibilities to play it, I would say its time to take a bit of a break. I'm not talking about skipping work for a day, or cancelling on a friend. Those are little responsibilities. If it is to the point where you are neglecting the children though, help is definitly needed.

Its just something the WoW player base, and all MMO player bases have to accept; there are some people out there that DO have a problem because of this game. Does it make it bad? No. Does it mean that Blizzard should do something? No. But it does mean that a grown adult should take some control of their life.

Its almost getting turned around now. For years the arguement has been non-gamers claiming games are bad for people and cause all the problems. Now its gamers saying that games cause NO problems. Everything causes problems, and the way that everyone claims that games have "no effect" on real lifeis just rediculous. I disagree with the people who say gaming is the cause of violence or rash actions just as much as the next guy, but to say that its not the games fault every time a problem comes up isn't right either.
