Mar 9th 2009 1:17PM I'm going to be blunt. You are either a hardcore raiding guild or you are not. If you pretend to be somewhere in the middle, this is what happens.
You have members who want to progress, and then you have the rest of the nubs that make up 80% of wow. I want phat lewt epics to be just like the cool dudez on the bright blue drake, but I dont want to work hard for it.
And i'll be frank. At this point in Wow. Hard mode is not a matter of time invested, or a matter of being "hardcore'. It is a matter of either you are skilled enough to do it, or you are not. You will not be carried through Sarth 3d.
So if you are not that highly skilled, be happy in your phat lewt purplez, just don't expect to be able to conquer the hardest content in the game.
Mar 6th 2009 2:23PM If you think that hardcore raiders dont care about the lore, and only care about epic loot, you are sadly mistaken. My guild is hardcore and we have cleared all the current content.
Recently we took a poll, what makes you want to raid? The overwhelming answer was Challenge and Progression. The option epic loot, unique loot was not picked by one person. Good loot, is a means to an end for a hardcore raider.
Your logic is flawed. Do successful buisness persons work hard their entire lives in order to become wealthy? No. They have a innate drive to succeed, and to be the best. Earning wealth is something that will naturally occur on the way to success.
Our guild uses a loot council. We distritbute loot to people who have earned it. Your raid spot is also not guaranteed. You either work your ass off like everyone else, or you dont get to raid with the big boys.
Want to know when the last argument about who got what loot was? Never. Good guilds will ALWAYS get all the good gear. It is only a matter of time for anyone who raids on a regular basis.
And yes I enjoy flying around on my Twilight Drake.
Nov 25th 2008 5:48PM I think he is my favorite character in WoW at this point.
The alliance is always playing defense. It has barely worked out for them at all. Most of the alliance has been slaughtered and the night elves lost their immortality.
The alliance NEEDS someone to lead them, to unite them under a banner, and to control them with an iron fist. I am tired of the alliance being "weak". It is time to take back what is rightfully ours, the horde did not save Azeroth, we did.
I would like to see more of this type of character development. Thrall is emo, Varian is a gladiator.
Nov 12th 2008 5:47PM Actually that makes perfect sense. You win this thread.
Nov 12th 2008 5:44PM We do live in the future. Its not my fault you live 3 hours behind me. When servers go down for maintenence it effects people on the east coast more. It is well into the evening before servers come back up every tue on our coast.
Nov 12th 2008 5:16PM Well anyone that is actually getting online tonight is probably only 10% of each server. I don't think too many of us are uber nerds =).
Nov 12th 2008 5:11PM I really hope 7-11 is punished harshly for selling early. It is especially uncool that thousands of us gamers will need to wait in line until midnight to get our copies, but a few people get theirs early.
Nov 12th 2008 5:08PM Well that is not cool. Way to reward us on the east coast for constantly getting screwed by maintenence.
So will West coast people be able to buy the game at 9pm PST??
Or do they still have to wait until 12 PST?
