The Queue: Flop {WoW}

Feb 20th 2011 12:08PM just a quick question- I noticed that when I returned after a year off from WOW that my Achievement points weren't what I remembered. While it could be my failing memory (at my ancient age of 31), I was wondering, do we lose the points associated with an achievement when it becomes a feat of strength?

The Queue: The one where we issue a retraction {WoW}

Sep 11th 2010 6:49PM Hey! Quick question- So I'm just coming back to Wow after eight months off. I play a troll Hunter and a tauren warrior, both level 80. any big changes or new content I should look out for?

Know Your Lore: The Twilight Dragonflight {WoW}

Mar 15th 2010 4:48AM WoW! Informative! And here I thought the Twilight Dragon flight was the masterminds behind the conspiracy to manipulate millions of teenage girls into worshiping Robert Pattinson!

StarCraft II beta is live. Beware of scams! {WoW}

Feb 19th 2010 2:15AM I got a invite in my e-mail last night, and I left it until I saw an announcement. I followed your steps and was able to verify that it was an authetic invite! Thank you!
I went to blizzcon in 2008, and one of the give sways was a beta code, which began to work for signing up just a few months ago. I imagine that the invite I got was blizz finally following through on that give away.

Breakfast Topic: The Cataclysm site update pool {WoW}

Feb 12th 2010 7:48PM I'm betting on may or june. I imagine that they'll try to make the most out of the excitement for summer movies.

You wouldn't like me when I'm hungry {WoW}

Jan 3rd 2010 6:29PM While I can certainly understand your frustration, there is a whole other side for the other group members- for instance when a tank DOES NOT stop for people to mana up, or keeps running out of the healer's range or line of sight. There are many frustrations that come with a PUG, and unfortunately the LFD system only makes those more apparent.

I'm sorry your experiences have been bad. But you are a major pillar of the WOW community, and I feel that a long list of complaints may not have a positive impact on the situation. If you look at the comments, already people are taking sides and dividing. and as of this writing there are less than twenty.

I agree that things could improve, and I can't help but wonder if that might better be accomplished by publishing a more positive and constructive series of posts, such as advice or common grounds rules for running pugs. While it may not change the world, you would have added something good to the situation, rather than negative feelings that many people are going to read and take with them into future groups.

Please Matt, many of us look to you guys at wow.com as the example of what a player should be. And this post leaves me wondering how you feel fellow players, especially those of a lower skill level, should be thought of and treated.

The Twelve Days of Winter Veil: Day three {WoW}

Dec 31st 2009 10:23AM I have your cat. Winning may improve his chances for survival (probably not, though. He's already scratched me and my couch). But this contest may determine the vehicle of his demise.... (wait, why is the door open... Kitty?) ok.... can I win cause I sent your cat home?

The Twelve Days of Winter Veil: Day five {WoW}

Dec 29th 2009 9:33AM please oh please oh please!

Dungeon Finder bingo {WoW}

Dec 29th 2009 1:37AM I agree that a player must take their role seriously in any group, especially a pug. the lack of familiarity and coordination means everyone needs to step up. However, Something I think people are forgetting is that the dungeon finder system was designed to make dungeons more accessible to everyone, especially casual players. And what drives me absolutely wild is when a so called "hard core" player decides to start yelling at some poor player trying out the DF because they're not playing at raid standards. Please folks, try to remember that not everyone can play 12 hours a day, or spend years theory crafting their play style. Being an elitest jerk only makes the game less fun to play for everyone.
