Oct 19th 2006 9:23AM The felguard is all nice and good, but here's the REAL question I got from watching that video: Does Burning Crusade's UI enhancements include some kind of enemy cast bar? It appears right under the bad guys unit frame.. see it? see it? Awesome.
Sep 19th 2006 4:34PM I re-read the post and then read my comment and it's pretty obvious I didn't really answer any of the questions proposed. Here's my real comment ;)
Q: How much do you think your WoW account is worth? $200? $500? Maybe even $1000?
A: lvl 60 Rogue on a rogue-heavy server: $50
lvl 60 Priest on a rogue-heavy server: $150
Misc Alts from lvls 15-31: $15
Definitely, not worth it... but it's something, right?
Q: If a person was totally finished with WoW, never to return to Azeroth again, why wouldn't they at least consider selling their account?
A: I guess they wouldn't if they really became attached to the toons like you said. However, if I knew I was quitting never to return, I wouldn't care if someone was playing my character... if I did come back, it would have to be a different server though, because I'd certainly be a little salty if I saw my old toon running around with shiny, new junk.
Q: What do you folks think?
A: You're the blogger.. your opinion is therefore at least 10 times more important than mine.
Q: Is account selling on the same level as gold buying?
A: No, but buying an account is on the same level and buying gold... huge time saver, controversial topic :)
Q: Would you do it?
A: Sell: yes. Buy: no. HOLD!
Sep 19th 2006 4:10PM I would sell my account if it wasn't too much trouble and I knew it was over for me. I'd let my guild know it was over and not to accept any substitues for the real RDG ;) Right now though, I see no sign of stopping... I'm absolutely hooked and have almost finished my second level 60 toon.
Side track: I would love to see Blizzard step up and manage a way to sell your account completely within the ToS. For example, you could throw your character up on a Blizzard auction block and it could go for any amount as long as Blizzard takes a percentage/transfer fee (since they own it, right?). To make it more "fair" Blizz could even requier that all non-soulbound items be stripped from the toon. It really would provide an awesome way to shake this addiction if I knew I could "legally" be compensated for the time I spent in this game and in the end, if I had a wad of cash in my hand, my wife wouldn't think I was such a dumbass for spending so much time playing ;)
Would I buy an account? No.
Do I really think Blizzard would implement the above idea? No.
Jul 11th 2006 10:54AM Lately, our server has been crashing during peak hours. It happened Wednesday during an Onyxia run and last night during Molten Core and has happened countless other times in that past few weeks. I'm starting to wonder if it is technically a server crash, because we seem to be able to log on almost immediately after. Once re-connected, the raid spends random amounts of time on the "Waiting for Character List" screen and then more time once the loading bar has reached 100% (sometimes as long as 15 minutes). Some members get back on within 5 minutes while others (sometimes in the same physical location) get through 30 minutes later. Last night (as was the case last Wednesday) we waited for most of the raid to get back on (approx 30 min) and then the same thing happened again. 5 crashes in a row Wednesday night before we all gave up, 3 in a row last night. It's been very frustrating to say the least. I'm sure others have it just as bad if not worse, but its hard enough to get 40 people organized and pulling without dealing with this crap.
