What are the implications of a real-dollar auction house? {WoW}

Aug 1st 2011 1:20PM I don't want to be melodramatic, but after this I'm almost certain I will skip Diablo 3.

Blizzard responds to feral druid Savage Defense concerns {WoW}

Apr 7th 2011 11:49AM .. also.. Feral DPS isn't low because it takes skill to play... it's low because kitties suck horribly at the moment.

Go check out some WOL parses, even the best cats are doing very poorly, even on bosses where the mechanics a well suited for them.

With better gear Cats will only fall further behind. With 4.1 skills and ilvl 372 gear cats are the worst dps spec (yes, even behind specs like frostmage or sub rogue). With Firelands gear (4.2) things will be even worse, due to poor scaling.

Feral DPS was challenging in Wrath, not so much in Cataclysm.

Blizzard responds to feral druid Savage Defense concerns {WoW}

Apr 6th 2011 6:04PM Meh, I wonder when Blizz will address some of the countless Feral Cat issues.

Cat DPS is very low, and with 4.1 changes to other classes and improving gear kitties are going to be the worst dps spec by far.

Director predicts Warcraft film will break video game movie trend {WoW}

Jan 2nd 2011 6:20PM Peter Jackson's movies poor? Maybe 'Bad Taste' etc just weren't suited for your tastes, they were far from poor.

Blizzard giving 7 days of free play to lapsed accounts {WoW}

Nov 15th 2010 7:26PM I never understand rewarding those who have left the game with free playtime instead of those who faithfully play and pay every month.

Well, I guess I understand why they're doing it... but I don't really like it.

Shifting Perspectives: Bear druids in patch 4.0.1, part 2 {WoW}

Sep 22nd 2010 12:09AM I hope cats are finally fixed when you're writing about them.

It's quite depressing, they've been broken since the alpha, and many patches later they're still broken, doing horribly low dps.

When a live kitty can outdps a lvl 85 cat easily, something is really wrong. While others are having fun testing lvl 85 heroics, cats are reduced to sulking in the corners. :-p

Patch 4.0.1 now available on background downloader {WoW}

Sep 16th 2010 1:05AM My downloader isn't loading 4.0.1, it's loading "4.0.0-patch-eu" and it's 1,76gb.

Cataclysm needs a "couple more months" before release {WoW}

Aug 18th 2010 7:27PM I hope it's released well before Christmas holidays (mid to late November), I'd like to have time for other stuff during them. :-p

Breakfast Topic: It's not us, it's you {WoW}

Aug 18th 2010 9:27AM "- Friendly guilds, u are there to play with your friends, to enjoy the game and have fun occationally, no strings attatched.

- Social raiding guilds. I have yet to see a single one that has lasted successfully without drama

- Progress guilds. You have a job. You are there. They expect that you show up for work.
In a way, these guilds, are the best to be in in my opinion."

I too prefer progression guilds, with some strict rules in place where necessary. My experiences with more "relaxed" guilds aren't very good.

I want to raid, so I make sure to sign up for them and show up in time and expect everyone else to do the same. Except social guilds are usually horrible at doing that, people don't respect raid schedules because they have this "hey we're only a casual guild" attitude.

My current guild has been together from Vanilla, and the core hasn't changed much over the years. The people in it are a pretty mature bunch ( and we never recruit anyone under 20 due to bad experiences in the past), with most people having met each other in RL (we're all from the same European country, another recruitment policy of ours).

So I guess ours is a friendly progression guild and we've managed to stay competitive with a bunch very high ranked kills over the years. Our strict recruitment policies mean we don't easily accept new members, but we don't lose many either.. and if we do it is usually due to retirement (ha, they always come back!) rather than drama.
