Translation - The vast amount of negative press, terrible reviews and general dissatisfaction from the subcribers has made me realise I should jump from this sinking ship before I drown.

Jun 16th 2009 8:08AM I love comments like this - "they are in fact extremely physically able and are in many ways quite animalistic"
In fact they are figments of you're imagination and can be whatever the hell you want them to be to fit in with the situation.
I mean if people were talked like this about some well respected novel it'd be one thing, but it's Warcraft, the plot of which has never been anything more than an (massivly flawed) excuse to explain what was happening. Blizzard writers have spent their entire career getting memos from the design team saying things like "We want to let the players play undead, shoehorn that into the plot please", and then they go off and write some swill about guy whos working for an orc who was turned into a lich by a demon who was working for a god trying to get some prince to help him...isn't that convenient.
Jun 16th 2009 7:51AM They should have had it the other way around. It should have been a blood elf guy trying to chat up a night elf girl, then they turn into a small boy and a fat old man.
Also @ Alex. It might seem a bit crap to WoW players but it was definatly aimed at them, it doesn't make sense otherwise. If you didn't play WoW (or video games in general for that matter) you wouldn't understand the "joke" of the long standing feud between red and blue.
I mean if they had bought Coke and Sprite you wouldn't automatically think that their drink choice indicated some massive difference in ideology (unless they turned into a Black Panter Party member and a guy from the ku klux klan)

May 5th 2009 7:39PM I'd go one step further than giving Rogues or any other class Bloodlust and just remove it from the game entirely while making everyones personal CDs slightly better to even it out.
The mechanic is just irratating. If you are trying and kind of new content (especially hard modes) you need multiple shamans or suffer the tedium of having to wait on the CD every time.

Excel is Microsoft-ugly and Microsoft-slow and Microsoft-bloated. Apart from this very specific problem I'd take Open Office over actual Office any day.
I dunno about Mac, but certainly for Windows the spreadsheet is unusable as anything but a viewer. While you can physically change the item in the gear list the data that is returned is wrong.
May 1st 2009 5:21AM "My numbers are also from Shandara's spreadsheet which in my opinion is more accurate than any in game numbers because it averages out all procs and abilities and therefore is not subject to the randomness that would be present in any game data."
Do you not see the major flaw in this statement? If you're are trying to play the "who can get the biggest number to come out of the spreadsheet" game then yes the spreadsheet is more accurate but if like most people you are playing World of Warcraft and you find that you consistently get higher DPS with one item compared with another then that item is better for you.
The spreadsheet will allways be a guide to which gear is proabably better, it is not the be all and end all of hunter DPS. The best example I can think of being the Hodir fight where you can't stand still without taking damage so you never get you're Sniper buff and auto shot is sporadic and then when you do stand still you get outside buffs from the boss...factors that are completely ignored by the spreadsheet that assumes that every fight you ever have you will be standing absolutly still with no buffs/debuffs outside of it's static list.
