Totem Talk: Mists of Pandaria resto talent calculator update {WoW}

Feb 21st 2012 1:31PM Still waiting to find out what is going to happen to Telluric Currents (will be sad if it gets relegated to a glyph). Also here is hoping Ascendence has an awesome animation.

Rumble Between the Junglers: How the DotA fight began {WoW}

Feb 17th 2012 3:21PM Is it safe to say that if Riot games had named League of Legends "Dota" all of this could have been avoided?

Looking for raid, or looking for trade? {WoW}

Feb 15th 2012 1:52PM See again this is someone trying to paint me into the "two wrongs making a right" picture. Im not doing it because they are doing it and therefore it justifies me doing it. I do it because they are doing it which ACTIVELY screws me out of a fair shake at getting the gear I need.

To use your own metaphor its more like " mooooooom all the OTHER kids are cheating on their SATs and also writing a bunch of wrong answers on my test and lowering my grade"

I would be highly suspicious that this would be classified as an exploit.

What I'm saying is if we ALL became "part of the problem" the problem would go away. Either by equalizing the playing field for everyone or forcing Blizzard to fix it.

Looking for raid, or looking for trade? {WoW}

Feb 15th 2012 1:24PM I got downvoted in another post talking about this. But the insidious problem with this is if you don't participate with this you get screwed. People keep saying that attitude is a 2 wrongs making a right argument. It isnt... its just a fact. If people are rolling need on stuff i need my only recourse is to roll on stuff they need (even if i dont need it) in the hopes of being able to trade with them. SO it may make me look like a jerk but its the only way to make the looting fair for myself too. I think disallowing trades (or putting a short timer on it) and eliminating the ability to vendor the stuff would go a long way to fixing this.

PAX East commits to Boston until 2023 {Joystiq}

Totem Talk: 5 ways to look like a bad restoration shaman {WoW}

Feb 14th 2012 2:04PM As my comments are getting grayed out of existence I wanted to say thanks. Im really not a dick.. I'm a pragmatist. Also its worth saying. If its a commonly accepted behavior to need on everything you can and then try to trade at the end. Doesn't it even out for everyone? If one guy needs on my shield but doesnt need it and i need on shoulders and dont need them and we trade who is it hurting? The other people involved in the rolls are on just as even footing as we are if they do they same thing. Then nobody is really being a jerk.. just lucky.

Totem Talk: 5 ways to look like a bad restoration shaman {WoW}

Feb 14th 2012 12:53PM Also before i get grayed out of existence i want to be clear. I agree its a dick move.. but unless someone can explain how not participating in it wont gimp me i think ihave to continue. i.e. I have everything i need for LFR except a shield, trinket, and ring.. if everyone else who already has these things rolls on them because they want to trade for the shoulder token I really have no other choice than to roll on the shoulder token i already have. I think with LFR its time to start thinking of everything you can roll need on as chaos orbs...

Totem Talk: 5 ways to look like a bad restoration shaman {WoW}

Feb 14th 2012 12:27PM Im sorry but #5 is just not valid for LFR. This pattern of rolling need on everything you can and looking to trade later is now the norm not just for Resto shammy's but everyone. If you dont do it you are willfully hurting your ability to get the gear you actually need.

Gabe Newell on the Steam hack: 'Probable' that user information obtained {Joystiq}

Feb 10th 2012 3:39PM @commonperson Well Sont also made people constantly aware of this by shutting down their network. Not to be an alarmist but im pretty sure if steam went down for a month while they fixed any security holes people would seriously lose their minds.
