Dec 8th 2008 2:16PM Hey, you know what'll be awesome? Let's all read step-by-step guides about how to accomplish every task in the game before we attempt to do anything using our own intelligence. Then let's download a few dozen UI mods that'll make it even easier to follow the walkthroughs to the letter. Then let's all jerk off over how what "hardcore" gamers we are.

So I then rolled a warrior, with the sole intention of being a tank."
Nov 18th 2008 3:05PM Let me quote myself from above in case you didn't see my reply to others.
"I'm not saying mods shouldn't exist. I'm saying that people who raid with mods that make raiding easier shouldn't complain that certain raids are easy mode."
I don't think mods are cheats or hacks. I understand that they are supported and encouraged by Blizzard, and should be a part of the game. What I am saying is that a great number of must-have mods provide information about and streamlining of many aspects of the game that make raid coordination smoother and simpler. And so doesn't it follow that to play without any mods could be perceived as a handicap? If the raids are too easy for you with all your mods on, turn 'em off.

Nov 18th 2008 2:19PM The people who make fun of those who don't use mods are the same people who bitch that the new raids are too easy. How about playing the game with the tools you're given?

Nov 18th 2008 11:27AM I'm one of the casual gamers for whom the early, "easy" raids are designed. WoW is literally the only computer/video game I play, and I assume that with as many subscribers as the game has, there are a lot of us. I was lucky enough to be part of a small guild of RL friends who were more hardcore than I am, and they held my hand through Kara to help turn me into a skilled raiding tank. I imagine that if I'd joined up with a guild of true gamers, it would have been more difficult to adapt to the challenges of raid coordination. Blizzard is right on in scaling back the difficulty of at least the early Wrath raids. They're expressed regret that casual gamers missed so much of the content and lore that was so carefully designed for TBC, and they want the casuals to see more of it this time around. I'm extremely please with their new philosophy. I understand why it's frustrating for hardcores, but the game is too popular for Blizzard to cater to hardcore needs alone. They simply have to be populists.

1 In a coma for the last 2 to 4 months
2 Living under a rock for said time frame"
3 Deliberately avoiding reading the spoilery posts to avoid having the content of the game, y'know... SPOILED. That's what spoiler warnings are for, you fucking retard. Thanks for ruining it. Dumb bitch.
Nov 12th 2008 6:16PM Frozen pizza isn't junk food? Pasta and bread? I guess that's fine for the skinny, Joey-Ramone-looking type of gamer nerds, but all the oily fat-asses (and there are a lot of them) who are going to be parked in front of the computer for the next week might want to consider fueling their Wrath sessions with -- I dunno -- fruit and vegetable snacks? Like they need another excuse to shovel more carb-and-salt-and-oil pies into their gaping maws. "WoW Insider said it's not junk food!"
Nov 10th 2008 8:23AM We all know the event was supposed to last longer than it did. It's because of all the bitching from whiny babies like Amaxe that Blizzard killed the fun times early.
